Learning, Laughing on all things Military Life – With Senior Editor at Military Times Sarah Sicard

On our last episode of 2022, Dr. Ron Hirschberg talks with Journalist Sarah Sicard about growing up in a military family, and growing an interest in shining light on the 1% military community through stories on culture, humor, history and all things entertainment in the military and veteran space. Sarah writes for Military Times and you'll find her work in Task and Purpose, National Defense News, and stay tuned of course for her upcoming first novel. Happy Holidays and we look forward to connecting back soon in 2023!

I also noticed that three people/organizations I admire and follow also follow Sarah – The Bob Woodruff Foundation, Marine Veteran Kate Mannion from Barstool Sports, and Veteran supporter, CNN Anchor Mr. Jake Tapper.  I thought that was pretty cool and spoke to her work on culture, humor and the ability like some creatives and leaders like Sarah, to bridge that military-civilian divide in a unique way.
