Description

It is safe to say that I have wandered a bit. I served in the military, flew some jets, jumped out of most, climbed mountains (I jumped off of them too), taught fitness, owned a gym, and have spent the last few years speaking to organizations and leaders. It has been a journey, and in all honesty, I have no idea where it is going. I seek the things that make me uncomfortable. I move towards things that scare me. I think you should too

Episode 156 - Keith Barry

2020-11-3002:48:541

Navy SEAL Chief Keith Barry spent more than 18 years serving his country before being wrongfully convicted of rape and serving two and a half years in prison. He had also been required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life and was preparing to live out his days a convicted felon. Three years after the conviction, and after two failed appeals, it was revealed in 2017 that the convening authority in his case had been pressured to rule against the evidence and to uphold the conviction against Barry in the post-trial clemency phase. Barry was reinstated into the Navy at his last held rank, Senior Chief, and it was ordered that his back pay be restored, as well as his other privileges. He has since retired and begun his civilian life.
