Home Base Nation

Fulfillment Of Trust, Part II - Featuring General (Ret.) Fred M. Franks, Jr.

Episode Summary

In Part II, we’ll dive into the battle plan that General Franks brought forward 30 years ago in Desert Storm, to successfully force the retreat of the Iraqi Republican Guard with less than 100 American causalities, in his so called “Left Hook” maneuver, that remains a text book battle plan example for US armored units. We also talk about the tribe of troops coming home right now after the 20 year War on Terror, and their needs and Home Base can help.
