About this Episode

The Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) is strengthening America’s national character. In an increasingly divisive cultural climate, they unite and strengthen communities. Our nation needs role models that inspire and we should look no further than the civic assets already living in our communities. Veterans and families of the fallen are leading the charge, pushing us to be better versions of ourselves and improving our collective character.

In this episode, we speak to Courtney Mitchell, Director of Development for the Travis Manion Foundation, where she manages the organization's growth and strategy through its national strategic partners.
