Stew and The Nunn, Episode 177 with LTC (ret) Scott Mann.
We are so happy to have LTC (ret) Scott Mann on the show tonight. Scott Mann spent 23 years in the United States Army, 18 of that as a Green Beret, where he specialized in unconventional, high-impact missions all over the world including Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Panama, Iraq and Afghanistan. In the same way he empowered local tribes in Iraq and Afghanistan to make transformative decisions, using very few resources, Scott now teaches the relationship-building techniques that drove so many of his successful combat operations. Together with his wife, Scott founded the 501c3 non-profit, The Heroes Journey, to help veterans tell their stories in transition.
Scott is the creator, writer and lead actor in his the one act play “LAST OUT: ELEGY OF A GREEN BERET“. This play is touring the country with Scott and three other actors; Ame Livingston who is also the Director, Bryan Bachman, who was also a Staff Sergeant in 82nd Airborne Division and multi-combat tour Veteran and Leonard Bruce who is also a retired Green Beret like Scott. These four actors play all the roles in this very powerful play.
See a little about the play and the actors portraying and talking about the play themselves
Also check out this clip as it shows parts of the play and Vets give their testimony about what it meant to them.
About the play itself:
Army Green Beret Danny Patton is a modern-day warrior fighting battles that range from tribal Afghanistan to his own living room. As the corrosive gears of war begin to rip apart his family, his integrity, and his soul, Danny is thrust into his final, eternal mission. On the other side, with Valhalla beckoning, he discovers that combat can be fueled by vengeance or by love… it just depends which price you are willing to pay. You’ve heard the war stories of the “first in.” This is the untold story of the LAST OUT.
