You’ll hear from war heroes like the actress, turned spy who worked as a double agent for the Union Army, and the gruff Air Force Veteran who became a soft-spoken national treasure. Listeners are invited to walk a mile in their shoes, and their identity is a secret until the climax. Some names are familiar and some you’ll learn for the first time. But they all have one thing in common, their contributions have changed the world.
Veterans featured include:
- Artist, Bob Ross
- Civil War spy, Pauline Cushman
- Radio personality, Robin Quivers
- FedEx founder, Fred Smith
- WWII hero, Virginia Hall
- Nike founder, Phil Knight
