Martin Sheen

Bobby Moynihan

Sgt. Beau Wise

This week on The National Defense, we have the honor to welcome legendary actor Martin Sheen to the show!  Randy and Martin have a wide-ranging interview that includes stories from his time on set for Apocalypse Now, the West Wing, as well as projects that became family affairs.  Comedian Bobby Moynihan is back on the show, this time promoting his new NBC sitcom Mr. Mayor.  Finally, with the word "patriot" being tossed around with little meaning behind it recently, we feature a real American patriot: Sergeant Beau Wise.  Beau has written a new book, Three Wise Men, detailing his experiences being pulled from the field in the Iraq War following the death of his two brothers in the line of duty.  It's another great show this week on The National Defense.
