In this special edition of The All-Around Adventure Podcast, I talk with U.S. Army Green Beret Kawa Mawlayee. Kawa is a combat veteran with over 17 years of experience in the special operations community. He’s a seasoned traveler who has been to multiple countries around the globe, working with various military, government, and law enforcement agencies. He also travels extensively throughout the U.S. providing firearms instruction to civilians. I had the opportunity to meet him when I took one of his courses not too long ago.
In this episode, Kawa tells the story of his time in the military. Which begins in the Marine Corps infantry, and eventually leads to the Army’s 5th Special Forces Group. He also shares the challenges he faced early in his career as an Afghan-American and a Muslim following the attacks on 9/11. Along with this, he draws upon his experience to share his insight on situational awareness, firearms training, and mindset. Giving examples from times he served in combat overseas. All of these are important things to consider in order to keep ourselves safe while living and traveling at home and abroad.
