What’s it like to be responsible for guarding the highest-profile prisoner of the Iraq War? That’s a fascinating question, and the answer is equally fascinating, equally complex, and equally spellbinding.

In this episode, Jim speaks with Kelly Hillyer, the U.S. Army officer in charge of Saddam Hussein’s security detail. And while you might initially think guarding a tyrant would be an austere detail what you’ll discover is that the job was much more nuanced, and much more human than you can imagine.

The music you’ll hear is an excerpt from a song written and performed by today’s guest, Dr. David Allan.

David is a Renaissance Man in the true sense. He’s an accomplished jazz guitarist, pianist, and trumpet player, and his early career and formal educational background is in music.

Yet like so many Renaissance Men, David is a seeker, and after pursuing his music career for a number of years, he began looking into ways to help people, and his fellow musicians, enhance their wellness and live better, healthier lives.

In this episode, you’ll learn all about David’s journey, and his approach to integrated wellness, one that incorporates chiropractic care, posture and movement education, exercise, lifestyle, and nutrition.

In this episode, Jim speaks with just such a man, former Army soldier and retired police officer, Steve Martin.

Steve is an Afghanistan war veteran whose battlefield injuries cost him both of his legs.

Yet rather than allow that to stop him, Steve chose to overcome his personal battles, conquer his inner demons, and live a life that we all can aspire to.

From overcoming pain medications and becoming one of the first double-amputee field police officers in the country, to becoming an athlete whose participation in high-profile competitions has elevated awareness for life after amputation, Steve is a man whose mindset we all can learn from.

If you want to be inspired by a real-life hero and learn about his new adventure with Friends of Freedom USA, then Jim’s conversation with Steve Martin is just what you’ve been looking for.
