Celebrity Salute

Celebrity Salute was created to honor our veterans, active duty military, their families and those who support them. Through conversations with celebrities, we recognize our nation’s true heroes and the sacrifices they make to protect our freedoms. We owe them greatly, and hope to raise awareness and support for them and their families while in active service and as they transition to civilian life —many continue to serve in the communities in which they live.

This week on Celebrity Salute, we welcome a truly heroic human being, Bryan Stern, to the podcast to discuss his group: Project Dynamo. Project Dynamo is an umbrella term encompassing two operations — Digital Dunkirk and Dynamo II. Both efforts are being run by extraordinary civilians with no ties to the U.S. government attempting to do the impossible — saving Americans and Afghan allies who are fearing for their lives as the Taliban regains control of Afghanistan. Randy speaks with Byran about how being at Ground Zero of the World Trade Center on 9/11 influenced the work he is doing today.
