Our guest today is Jacqueline Carrizosa, a Navy veteran and total badass. Her roots with the military and first responder communities run deep. Her dad is retired Air Force, her sister is an active duty Navy Officer, and she has numerous friends who are firefighters or police officers.

Jacqueline spends her time empowering young athletes; men, women, and children alike. A fierce competitor, she's played male dominated sports her entire life and was gearing up for an epic 650-mile off-road motocross race when she was hit by a truck during a training ride and almost killed.

Having dealt with a childhood that was dominated by mental and physical abuse, Jacqueline has been perpetually inspired to give back to the community by hosting veteran charity work and athletic events that challenge veterans to live more aspirational lives while conquering regular difficulties in transition. A firm believer in self-defense, Jacqueline is associated nationally with various gun companies and defending American rights, and she instructs national classes educating the public on safe weapons handling and tactics. She also writes blog articles for Guns & Tactics and the NRA.

Join us as we talk about:
