GRP 146-A Wise Man Does His Own Work: The Story of a British Volunteer in The Fight Against ISIS

Joining me for this week’s podcast is author and veteran of the war in Syria Ed Nash. Ed, is a civilian from the United Kingdom who spent his early 20’s traveling the world. He would eventually go on to work with the Free Burma Rangers(FBR). The FBR is a volunteer organization led by a former American Special Forces Officer which provides aid to civilians in war zones around the globe. After a few stints with the FBR as an information officer Ed went on to join up with the Kurds in the fight against ISIS in Syria. Initially he was to work in an information/media role. One thing led to another and he went on to deploy into combat as a Designated Marksmen or as some of the Kurds called it the Sniper unit. We discussed his time in Syria, what it was like returning home to the U.K. and much more. Enjoy.
