Nick Irving – “The Reaper” – One of the Most Deadly Ranger Snipers in History
This week TNQ Podcast hosts and former Navy SEALs, Marcus Luttrell and David Rutherford, welcome “The Reaper,” US Army Ranger Sniper Nick Irving, as he brings to the show his riveting account of combat in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, and how it took every ounce of his formidable #NeverQuit mindset to survive. Listen in as Marcus and David dig-in deep with one of the most deadly snipers in Ranger history, to bring to light some life lessons you too can begin to apply in daily life.
From nearly running out of ammunition, to sprinting a mile across open ground under fire, to being rescued moments before his team must decide to fall on their last grenade, this is one of the most gripping battlefield accounts ever heard on the TNQ Podcast. Irving shares details which paint a powerful picture of the twelve hour mission in which he and his sniper team barely survive.
After the dust settles, Marcus and Dave help Nick bring out the lessons learned from not only his combat experience, but also the major challenges which awaited him after military service in the civilian world, such as PTSD and substance abuse. Once again this week, the team, along with Nick Irving, deliver on their mission to bring you some of the world’s most inspiring and impactful #NeverQuit stories. Help spread the word by sharing the show with friends and family.
