In this week’s podcast episode, we sit down with well-known motivational speaker, Earl Granville. Earl is a breath of fresh air, finding comedic relief in the battles he’s fought overseas and in his personal life. Click the link below to hear the full interview.
Earl’s life is documented in brevity on his website: “Earl Granville, was two weeks into basic training at Ft Benning, GA with his twin brother Joe, when 9/11 happened. He went on to serve nine years in the Army National Guard as an Infantryman, with deployments to Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan. On his final tour, he lost his left leg through the knee to a roadside bomb while on patrol. He also lost his teammates Major Scott Hagerty of Stillwater Oklahoma and Specialist Derek Holland of Wind Gap Pennsylvania that day. After the loss of his limb in combat and the passing of his brother Joe, who took his own life while he was serving on active duty back in 2010, Earl now spends most of his time traveling the country as a public speaker. He spends much of his free time working with non-profits, including Operation Enduring Warrior, the Oscar Mike Foundation and WarriorStrong. These 501c3s help keep wounded and disabled veterans and law enforcement physically active after their injuries. “
