This week on The National Defense, we welcome stand-up comedian and friend to anyone in the uniform of the U.S. Military, Lewis Black!  Randy and Lewis discuss his many trips overseas to support the USO Christmas shows as well as his new special, available now, Thanks for Risking Your Life.  Canadian artillery gunner, Kelsi Sheren, joins the show to discuss how her own PTSD art therapy turned into Brass & Unity, supporting veterans in both their recovery and employment efforts.  Michelle Baldanza from Fisher House give us an update on the new Fisher House locations popping up near VA facilities all over the country, and former SEAL Team 7 member, Ryan "Birdman" Parrott, talks to us about his service and his VSO, Sons of the Flag.  That's all this week on The National Defense.
