21 Talks with Robert Soto

by 21 Podcast

“He only earns his freedom and his life who takes them everyday by storm” – Goethe
 
On this segment of 21, we talk with Former Army Specialist Robert Soto. Robert was featured in Pulitzer Prize Winner CJ Shivers’ book, The Fighters: Americans in Combat. The Boston Globe says, “The Fighters” is a “gripping, unforgettable” portrait of modern warfare.”
 
Like so many of us, the tragic events of September 11, 2001, changed Robert’s life. As a native of the Bronx, Robert lived in close proximity to the terrorist attacks on New York City. What he witnessed and experienced in the aftermath of that day propelled him into military service.
 
Robert discusses the process to enlist in the Army, his impressions of training, and how he prepared for deployment. He describes some of his most powerful memories of combat, illustrates the countries and people where he served, and pays homage to a fallen comrade.
Robert is now retired from the Army and is pursuing a career in music. As a special addition to this podcast, we feature a track of Robert’s music.
 
The TrainHarder21 family thanks Robert for his service to our country, and we extend our gratitude to all in our armed forces who have fought to protect our freedom.
Happy Independence Holiday! Enjoy this episode of 21!
