Remi Adeleke is the author of TRANSFORMED: A Navy SEAL's Unlikely Journey from the Throne of Africa, to the Streets of the Bronx, to Defying All Odds. Today on the show, Remi shares who he wrote the book for and why he decided to write the book himself and not use a ghostwriter. We talk about his time as a Navy SEAL, working in human intelligence and how he learned to listen and find common ground with informants. I ask him what it’s like to be a lead consultant on the forthcoming Netflix film, 6 Underground and if he could offer youth insight on ways to find meaning and purpose in their lives.
The Carleena Show features in-depth conversations with guests from around the world. Host Carleena Angwin is a writer, public health professional, and former Peace Corps Volunteer based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. https://carleena.fireside.fm/

Steve Exceen is a Marine Corps veteran, father, and founder of Ride for 22, a nonprofit organization that seeks to 1.) raise awareness about veteran suicide, 2.) serve as a living memorial for our fallen heroes, and 3.) increase public knowledge and awareness of Post Traumatic Stress. Steve discusses the journey that led him to start Ride for 22. His organization started with three people and grew to include thousands of riders in Idaho and Oregon, riders who display a picture of someone’s loved one during the 3 hour ride so families know they are not forgotten. We have a special guest on the show today. Steve’s nine year old daughter joins us at the end and says hello.

July 16, 2015 a gunman killed five servicemen at a Navy and Marine Corps reserve unit in Chattanooga Tennessee. I was a mile away at work and witnessed the city go on lockdown as 'active shooter situation' and 'no-fly zone' announcements appeared on the news. Although I didn't know those men, their lives and that incident impacted me in ways I couldn't have imagined. One year later, July 16, 2016 I met a Marine veteran of the Iraq war and our conversations and interactions over the next couple years would change the way I think. This episode is in honor of the men who lost their lives that virulent day, and it's also in honor of new friendships.
