We know, we know. It's been a minute since we hit ya'll with an Afterparty episode, but your prayers have been answered. So with Veterans Day on the horizon, we're joined by former combat medic and current Reparations Podcast co-host Richard Brookshire to deconstruct Obama’s military legacy, Richard's quest to maintain his Black identity despite his surroundings, the mistreatment of veterans by society as a whole, why Richard believes Micah Johnson was a martyr for racial justice, and how his military service felt like a lie. And to the courageous individuals in the Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard, as well as our military veterans, we are eternally grateful for your service and sacrifice. As well as the friends and family who keep them loved and uplifted over the course of their military careers.

The Afterparty: "Veterans Day" (Feat. Nickolas Gaines)

In this installment of The Afterparty, we discuss the importance of Veterans Day to us as military veterans, how we celebrate both ourselves and our fellow soldiers, and how we reconcile fighting for the same country that often mistreats and oppresses us.
