Lt. Wilson has served in the US Army's 3rd Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard Ceremonial Unit) in Washington , DC. He was the 547th solider to ever complete the training for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. Lt. Wilson took part in President Gerald Ford's funeral.

He completed flight school and was selected to fly the AH64D Apaches Attack Helicopters.

Lt Wilson and I talk what it is like flying Apaches in a war zone, taking part in rescue missions in Afghanistan, having the courage to pivot careers, flying drones and the toll serving in a war zone takes on one's mental health. And of course we talk some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
