Scuttlebutt Ep 40: Nick Kalt, Doing Good in Dangerous Situations

Vic sat down with Nick Kalt to dig deep into his career, first as a combat engineer in the Marines and then as a firefighter in Long Beach, California. Listen to this great episode that covers a lot of ground, from talking about how Marines in the Middle East were doing good things, regardless of the political reasons they were sent in, from liberating villages, to building roads and schools, to why firefighting is a logical next choice for driven Marines who seek service and camaraderie, even for someone who was seriously injured twice in the Corps, once in training and once the line of service, as Kalt was.
