Saber Rock: An Indomitable Spirit Under the Most Horrific Conditions

Way of the Renaissance Man starring Jim Woods

What can we learn from a man fighting desperately to conquer theocratic control over his country—all with a huge smile and an infectiously positive disposition?

Plenty, and that’s exactly what you’ll learn in this episode of the Way of the Renaissance Man podcast, featuring the indomitable spirit known as “Saber Rock.”
Saber Rock is an Afghanistan subject matter expert, English language Institute president, and an interpreter for the U.S. Marine Corps and Coalition Forces during the war against the Taliban in Afghanistan.

In this interview from the FreedomFest conference, you’ll hear his heart-wrenching personal story of valor, comradery, humor, pain, loss, action, adventure—and his fight back from death’s door to become a real-life hero. Saber Rock’s values and virtues, along with incredible story of his efforts to free the Afghan people from Taliban control, is the subject of the award-winning documentary film “Saber Rock,” which was directed and produced by my friends the Locastro brothers.
