Arlington wreaths, Afghanistan troops and Nerf grenades

You know it will be an entertaining Tango Alpha Lima podcast when less than a minute into it, co-host Mark Seavey announces “we are off the rails.”

In the 30th episode of The American Legion’s podcast, Seavey and co-hosts Jeff Daly and Ashley Gorbulja-Maldonado break down the recent decision to continue Wreaths Across America at Arlington National Cemetery after an earlier cancellation due to the pandemic.

Other topics the trio addresses include the Trump administration’s decision to pull troops out of Afghanistan in January, disabled Marine veterans targeted by thieves and using Nerf footballs as hand grenades.
