To mark Veterans Day, host Rachel Martin talks with Chris Clary, the newest member of Spirit of America, a group of veterans who provide humanitarian aid to locals in foreign countries as a way to help U.S. troops deployed overseas.
Spirit of America (SoA) provides humanitarian, civic and economic assistance in direct response to needs identified by American military and civilian personnel. SoA adds the agility, innovativeness and resources of the American private sector to the capabilities of the US government and military in support of US missions abroad. This support makes US troops and diplomats safer and more successful in their missions and helps local people often not reached by large-scale aid programs. Spirit of America also provides the American people a way to understand, connect with and support the vital work of US personnel serving abroad.
