Truth About War
Episode 14: Ken Falke
On our final episode of the season, we talk with Navy veteran Ken Falke. Ken Falke is a retired Navy EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) technician. They’re the ones who diffuse bombs, mines, shells, and missiles. They spend a lot of time in highly technical tedious training. Ken Falke spent 18 years disarming explosives throughout Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and other hotspots around the world, before returning home and starting a company that trains soldiers for the same specialty. Tune into our conversation with Ken about his experience as an EOD and how veterans can turn their experiences of trauma into opportunities for growth.
