Brigadier General (S) Jason Bailey is a real life Maverick and American hero who has lived an extraordinary life. 

He has more than 3,000 flying hours, including more than 600 combat hours in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Brig. Gen. Bailey received his commission through the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1995. He has served as a flight lead, instructor, and mission commander in in the F-16 and C-130. 

At the time of this interview, Brig. Gen. Bailey was a Colonel and leading a wing of more than 5,000 dedicated military and civilian personnel who maintain, deploy, and employ the F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter aircraft and $6 billion of United States Protection Level-1 assets in support of North Atlantic Treaty Organization and U.S. missions as directed by the President and Secretary of Defense. The wing supports the Supreme Allied Commander, Europe with mission-ready personnel and systems providing expeditionary air power for suppression and destruction of enemy air defenses, air interdiction, close-air support, counter-air, strategic attack, combat search and rescue, and nontraditional intelligence.

Most importantly though, Brig. Gen. Bailey is an even better family man, father, and husband that I've had an opportunity to cross paths with. We could not have selected a better guest to kick-off our podcast. 

It was an amazing discussion. We laughed, got philosophical, got serious, shed some tears, and covered everything from favorite super heroes to Brig. Gen. Bailey's deployment and homecoming return from his Afghanistan deployment. 

Words can't do this interview justice. It is a must listen and we are honored and grateful to have had to the opportunity to get these insights. 

We hope you enjoy as much as we did! Thank you Brig. Gen. Bailey for your service, being an incredible example that we can follow, and for your time.
