He completed five combat deployments between Iraq and Afghanistan as both an infantry Marine and Marine Special Operator. He has been awarded the Silver Star and Bronze Star for Valor for actions on the battlefield during those deployments. He has seen the hellish, unlucky, and simply chaotic side of war, and lived to tell about it. After eight years of service, he left the Marine Corps to become a writer. Now Elliot Ackerman is an accomplished author, who has plenty of life experience to keep the pen on paper for years and years to come. And out of all of the living that he has done, and accolades earned, he approaches life with a humility unexpected from someone so accomplished. And that’s what makes his story a must-listen. Hear all about it on this episode of HAZARD GROUND!
