#003 Don Bradley A.K.A. Headshot Don

In this episode Shawn Ryan sits down with Don Bradley A.K.A. Head Shot Don who is a former Green Beret and a former CIA Contractor who has over 20 combat deployments with the CIA alone.  Don has a severe TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and his symptoms can hit unexpectedly so we go right into the meat of this one with absolutely 0 fluff.  He is an operator who has seen more combat than most can imagine but consistently displayed the upmost self restraint while under attack and extreme duress which is extremely hard to do. We go into detail into 3 separate incidences one of which actually happens right here in The United States in Monroe County, Georgia where his destiny unfortunately falls in the hands of the court system.
