146: "Risking is always better than regretting." 30 years of service and paying tribute to Camp Pendleton Marines since 9/11 with Amy Forsythe
Amy Forsythe attended an all girls Catholic high school, wearing a uniform and doing what the nuns told her to do. It turns out that the military is not that much different. Today, Amy is an award-winning military journalist, a Public Affairs Officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve, and the author of Heroes Live Here: A Tribute to Camp Pendleton Marines Since 9/11. She credits the partnerships that made her book possible, shares what inspired her to join the Marines - 30 years ago, how she eventually balanced being in the reserves and civilian life, the importance of recruiting top talent, women in the military, and much more.
