Lisa Jaster is most often recognized as one of three women to graduate the US Army's Ranger School.  In this honest and inspiring discussion, we learn that she is so much more.  Lisa is a West Point graduate and has served combat tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan.  She's also the wife of a Recon Marine and a mother to two beautiful children...and a member of Team RWB's Houston Chapter.

We cover a bunch of interesting topics, including:

  • Her motivation for going to Ranger School
  • The importance of having strong family support
  • Dealing with doubter and detractors
  • Coming back to the "real world"
  • Moving beyond broad generalizations about people
  • The value of community
  • CrossFit, Jiu-Jitsu, and Triathlon

Lisa doesn't do many interviews and we are very thankful to have spent some time with her as part of our Team RWB community.  She offers a ton of wisdom and motivation for all of us.

Jason MaCarthy is a combat veteran, former Green Beret, and founder of GORUCK.  We caught up with him at GORUCK HQ in Jacksonville Beach, FL to talk about combat, coming home, and moving forward.

Team RWB and GORUCK have a strong and growing partnership that is rooted in our shared passion for building richer lives and stronger communities.  We've worked together on the Kill That 5k race series, Leadership Camps, and the forthcoming Bridge the Gap Weekends.  

Jason and I have a great talk over a Bud Heavy and cover some big topics, like:

  • How Special Forces training has prepared us to build a business
  • Why you should do more awesome stuff with good people
  • How it feels to hit rock bottom, and what it takes to pull through
  • The fact that we all have much more in common than we think

This episode is an inside look at a remarkable veteran that has continued his mission to serve America long after taking off the uniform.  I'm proud to count Jason as a friend and Team RWB is proud to have GORUCK as a partner.
