There are many reasons why brown folks end up in the military (recruitment in the hood, the be-all-you-can-be promises, etc). A lot of us “progressive” types are quick to bash them without having meaningful discussions about their experiences in the military.

Special shout out to Sonia Guinansaca and Yosimar Reyes for a special appearance in this episode. As always, special thanks to my best friend Tina Vásquez!
