War Time podcast Episode 2 with Denise Sanders, career Navy C-130 medic turned Helicopter AH-64 Apache Pilot. Denise was there during the start of the Iraq war and has seen it through ever since.
Welcome, my name is Connor Odom and this is episode 2 of the War Time podcast. Our guest, Denise Sanders, is a career Navy C-130 medic turned Army AH-64 Apache helicopter pilot. Denise is a special woman, not only is she a hero, she’s also a single mom and two-time cancer survivor. Speaking with Denise Sanders was very exciting as we talked stories about her time saving lives as a C-130 medic and protecting lives as an Apache pilot, let alone a female Apache pilot.
Furthermore, in episode 2, Denise and I talk about her background and the deciding factor to join the military. We talk about her dream to fly and how she made the decision to make the move from the Navy as a medic, to the Army as a pilot. Denise explains her interest in the Apache helicopter and why women do not typically choose the Apache. Additionally, we get into stories about her service and her most exciting, unforgettable, and nerve racking memories as an Apache pilot.
Having Denise on for episode 2 will bring a completely different perspective to wartime experiences. The differences between airborne fighting and ground units are prevalent. These differences will encompass the whole feeling and understanding of war. This podcast is intended to guide the audience into understanding all sides of combat. Overall, I think there is a lot to learn about our world that never gets talked about.
