Ep. 3 – Empowerment Expert and Brave Leader, Kimberly Outlaw

Kimberly Outlaw, Executive Director of Outreach for Support A Soldier, shares her story of bravery and courage. Support A Soldier makes soldiers safer, more comfortable and more effective in combat areas by supplying gear/equipment which is not provided by the US military, or which is better than what soldiers are issued.
