Courageous, brave, selfless, and heroic are all words that are synonymous with this week’s guest of the What 2 Know podcast.

As a POW during the Vietnam War, Colonel Reeder faced incredible circumstances yet displayed a tremendous amount of poise, loyalty, and bravery. This experience largely impacted not only how Colonel Reeder views leadership, but also how he leads others.

There is no doubt that Colonel Reeder not only led well as an active member of U.S. military, but continues to practice what he preaches. Take a listen below.
