Dive into the fray with host Ben Domenech, publisher and co-founder of The Federalist, as he welcomes Amber Smith, Former Deputy Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Outreach, former U.S. Army OH-58D Kiowa Warrior helicopter pilot, and Air Mission Commander in the 101st Airborne Division.

In this conversation, Amber and Ben reflect on the challenges of the military as the country faces a growing divide between civilians and those who have served in the armed forces. Amber also weighs in on the future of the military, the Middle East, and which reforms might be needed, calling recruitment and retention a “national security threat.”
