Episode 29: Jim the Soldier -ED & FRIENDS (U.S. Election Special)

Ed & Friends takes a different tone this week as Ed talks to his friend and cousin Sgt. James Russell, and while they talk about life in the US Military, the subject inevitably turns to tomorrow’s Presidential election.


Ed asks how a soldier reacts to Presidential candidates that evoke the military in their campaigns, whether they are bending the facts to aid their campaign or disrespecting the families of fallen soldiers. Jim, a man that does not waste his words, gives Ed his views on Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and the duty of a soldier.
