Pundits were left scratching their heads last fall when Foreign Policy reported that Bernie is the top recipient of donations from the military. But to supporters, it was no surprise: Bernie has a long record of fighting for the rights of US troops to health care, housing, and education - as well as keeping them out of endless, counterproductive wars in the first place.
In this week's episode, Briahna sits down with Kyle Bibby, co-founder of the Black Veterans Project and an organizer with progressive vets group Common Defense, to talk about how time spent in military service can bring someone to the left. Then, she talks to Hector Barajas, a veteran who was deported despite his years of service and who founded the Deported Veterans Support House in Tijuana, Mexico.

Bernie is counting on all of us to continue fighting for our progressive agenda. There is only one way we will transform this country – and that is together.
