After the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Jason Robinson felt a calling to serve in the military. Notably, he felt it was his duty to serve having been born into a free society - a way to earn his citizenship. He also wanted to do his part to ensure the U.S. military didn’t revert back to a draft to fight the Global War on Terror - something his sons could have faced as they grew older. Robinson chose the Infantry at age 34 - no easy feat. He literally had to fight his way into the Infantry, writing letters to both President Bush and Vice President Cheney so that he could join in his mid-thirties. Robinson went on to fight honorably in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, receiving the Purple Heart for injuries he sustained in an EFP strike. Needless to say, Jason Robinson earned his citizenship and then some. Hear his inspiring story on this latest edition of HAZARD GROUND!
