Every Veteran business owner has a unique story to tell about their journey through entrepreneurship. Those stories can help inspire, educate, and motivate other Veterans who are either in the middle of their own journey or considering starting one. The After Action Review Podcast (The AAR Podcast) serves as a vehicle to create, promote, and support a network of Veteran entrepreneurs by capturing and sharing their stories with the Veteran community.

The AAR Podcast, is an audio and video podcast for Military and Veteran entrepreneurs, business owners, artists, and non profit organizations. We promote entrepreneurship and Veteran products, business, and service.

Vital Warrior

My guest is the Founder and CEO of Vital Warrior. He is a 22 year combat Veteran and retired Navy Seal. He has personally walked the tough road from trauma to recovery after suffering a combat-related injury from an exploded IED that went untreated for many years. Through a series of healing modalities that became the basis of his recovery, my guest realized he could help his fellow veterans and their families with this unique system of recovery.  Vital Warrior's Mikal Vega!
