About this Episode:
In this episode I talk to my dad, Jim Ryan. This is part 2 our conversation. If you missed Part 1, please go back and listen here.
In part 2 we talk about what it was like to transition from his experience in the army and in Viet Nam to life, school and work in Chicago.
He shares some of his favorite stories and moments from his days working as a cameraman at CBS news
And we talk about family, fatherhood and what he’s learned as he’s grown older.
He also opens up and shares an experience that happened during battle while he was in the army during the Vietnam war. It’s an emotional story that takes place from the 48-50 minutes mark. I wanted to give fair warning in case it may be triggering to anyone listening.
I hope you enjoy our conversation!
