    PFFL E#2- Remastered Christopher Burritt

    6 MAR. 2024 · It’s been 20 years since The Soldiers of Blackhawk Company 1st of The 23rd Infantry Regiment. This interview is with my former Driver Christopher Burritt. Burritt had the pleasure of driving B6 during our operational deployment in 2003-2004. Chris was one of the many heroes that I served with throughout my military service, and he has been working to launch his business. Part of the remaster is to bring attention to the previous shows that I shot during the pandemic and the audio was not the best, but also to provide you with a much better clearer version of the discussion. This is just a hint of who we were back then, and Blackhawk Company 1-23 was one of the formative years of my career and gave me a great understanding of what soldiers can do in the Army with some top cover and some initiative. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to lead in unit of distinction. Previous Show Description: Conversation with Christopher Burritt, former NCO from 1-23 Infantry. He now runs his own business American Twister Manufacturing. He mentioned Patriotic Online Marketplace, LLC www.pompUSA.org who assisted him in marketing his small business. I enjoyed this conversation and I hope you do as well. We had some audio issues, but I hope that you can hear it.
