Today's episode is with U.S. Congressman (D-MA 6th District) and Marine veteran Seth Moulton. We connected with the Congressman after we spoke with Said Noor, the Afghani American U.S. Army Veteran who's episode we released last week. Said's mom and siblings were able to get out of Afghanistan about the fall of Kabul to the Taliban in August 2021, thanks in large part to Congressman Moulton and his team, including Director of Constituent Services Neesha Suarez, who worked with Said and U.S. military on the ground in Afghanistan to get to them safety. We spoke with Congressman Moulton not only about Said and how he and his team helped Said's family, but more generally about service, about his pivot to public service back in college, and how that has stayed with him ever since, always trying to do the right thing.
