VA Podcast: “Borne the Battle”

Launched in late 2016, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) weekly podcast is a part of its ongoing effort to engage and reach out to Veterans. “Borne the Battle” recognizes each battle, challenge, and sacrifice our Veterans endure during and after their service, as well as spotlighting important resources, offices, and benefits the VA offers Veterans.

Borne the Battle is the VA’s only official podcast. The podcast was designed to engage with Veterans and members of the military community while spotlighting important information from across the VA. Distinguished guests join host—and Marine Veteran—Tanner Iskra each week to discuss:

  • Bridging the military/civilian divide
  • Educating VA employees about the warriors they serve
  • Promoting Veteran advocacy initiatives thru the voice of Veterans
  • Inspiring and educating transitioning Veterans with positive stories
  • Informing Veteran listeners about new information from VA as it is released
  • New information from the VA about important resources and benefits

Previous guests include Duke Basketball’s Coach Mike KrzyzewskiUFC’s / Fox Sports’ Brian Stann, and the 36th Army Chief of Staff, George Casey. You can find Borne the Battle on iTunes, Google Podcasts and any pod-catching app on a mobile device.
