Forrest Munden is a US Army Veteran who served with the 101st Airborne. He created the Salty Soldier as a comedy page on Instagram as a satire on Army life and has since built it into a hugely popular social media platform.
Since leaving the Army, Forrest has taken himself on a personal exploration of ideas surrounding masculinity, strength, and life. His podcast, BackBuilders, is designed for individuals interested in seeking personal development, discipline, and sovereignty.
Forrest's goal is to harden his listeners to better bear the burdens of life and he does an outstanding job of that with his commentary.
This was an outstanding conversation about the state of the veteran community, and potential solutions to the problems veterans face in this modern world.
