Episode 4: The Life of a Combat Interpreter

With Ritchie Mushfiq

This episode is dedicated to SrA Jonathan Yelner. KIA 29 April 2008. Tag Ab District, Kapisa Province, Afghanistan. Kapisa & Parwan Provincial Reconstruction Team, Team Southern Kapisa, FB Kutchbock. Gone But Not Forgotten.

This episode with Ritchie is close to our hearts, as he served as Will’s combat interpreter many years ago. He describes his military service: the IED incident that took both his legs, the stunning moment he was evicted from a U.S. military base following his injuries, and his subsequent journey to the U.S. Ritchie’s story is marked by courage and gratitude and is truly worthy of a listen.
