I’m sure, by now, you’re aware of the powerful team an Echelon Front led by Navy SEAL Commander, Jocko Willink. At this point, I’ve had the majority of his team on the podcast including my guest today, Mike Sarraille.
Today, Mike talks with us about the power of the veteran community in the civilian sector. We go into some topics that aren’t usually addressed regarding transitioning military members including biases against veterans, the bitterness and entitlement some veterans develop, translatable skills from military to civilian life, and, ultimately, how we put our nation’s toughest warriors to work.

My guest today is Mike Sarraille. He is a retired Recon Marine and Navy SEAL and, more recently the co-founder of EF Overwatch and leadership instructor/strategic advisor for Echelon Front.
He served alongside Jocko Willink and Leif Babin with SEAL Team THREE and played a pivotal role in the Battle of Ramadi in 2006. He also served as the primary leadership instructor for all officers graduating from the SEAL training pipeline and worked in the Joint Special Operations Command where he completed multiple combat tours.
Mike is a recipient of the Silver Star, six Bronze Stars, two Defense Meritorious Service Medals, and a Purple Heart. Today he is here to talk with us about his experience and how to put our nation’s warriors to work.

The Iron Council is growing. I think part of the reason for that is, during times of crisis, men know and have a desire to step into the positions that will best serve their families and communities. It’s built into our DNA to lead, especially in times of crisis.

And, on top of that, you’re going to have a path to run on and a place where you can develop the camaraderie most men don’t get outside of military service or team sports.
