Michael Rodriguez spent 21 years serving in the United States Army as a Green Beret. Both his wife and son served, bringing the family to a total of 16 deployments. Rodriguez is a member of President George W. Bush's Military Service Initiative Advisory Council, the Executive Ambassador for the Green Beret Foundation, and sits on the Leadership Board of the Global War on Terror Memorial Foundation.
When the team decided they wanted to discuss the current issues facing the special forces community, they knew that Rodriguez was the perfect person to talk to. Additionally, Rodriguez opens up about watching his son deploy with the 82nd Airborne: "All I saw was a toddler going up the ramp and it ripped me like a shotgun."
