Join members of the Sons of the Flag as they discuss the group’s work and mission. On tonight’s show, Sons Of The Flag (SOTF) Radio Task Force Director Chad Gruver talks to Devin Barnhart. Devin is a firefighter in Fort Collins, Colorado, and the newest member of the SOTF Task Force. In 2004, Devin was involved in a horrific structure fire in which three of his friends were fatalities and he was left with second- and third-degree burns to 75 percent of his body.  Devin talks about his fight to overcome his injury, the struggles he went through and his new purpose of becoming a firefighter and his new mission with Sons of The Flag.
