Fortress On A Hill Fortress On A Hill As Americans, we are proud of our military and the men and women that make it up, but how much do we really know about what happens in the military? Why is the war in Afghanistan still going on 17 years after 9/11? Are the budget increases proposed by President Trump needed for military readiness? Which MRE tastes the most like human food and which tastes like the inside of a rusted battery? These are simply a a few of the questions we aim to ask. Please join our hosts, Chris 'Henri' Henrikson and Danny Sjursen, as they discuss the state of our military, a deep look at its history, and the principles that have pushed our country into unending war. The United States has become synonymous with empire and endless war, American troops sit in 70% of the world's countries, and yet, most Americans don't know that. The military is joined disproportionately by a 'warrior caste’ whom carry this enormous burden, making a less diverse force and ensuring most of society doesn't see their sacrifice. And American tax dollars, funding hundreds of billions in unnecessary spending on global hegemony, are robbed from the domestic needs of ordinary Americans. We aim to change that. Join Danny and Henri, two Army combat veterans, as they discuss how to turn the tide against endless war and repair the damage America has caused abroad.
