GRP 119- A Navy SEALs Humanitarian Struggle in The Battle For Mosul: The City of Death


GRP 119-I have a great guest on with me for this episode. Ephraim Mattos, is a former U.S. Navy SEAL turned humanitarian aid worker. Mattos has an upcoming book releasing in October co authored by Scott McEwen (the author of American Sniper) called “City of Death: Humanitarian Warriors in the battle for Mosul”. Ephraim spent months in Iraq with the Free Burma Rangers providing medical care to Iraqi’s wounded during the battle to re take Mosul from ISIS. There is a viral video taken during the battle where Mattos, and a former U.S. Marine step out from behind a tank to provide covering fire for David Eubank as he sprints under ISIS sniper fire to rescue a little girl. Eubank is a former American Special Forces officer who founded the Free Burma Rangers. Mattos was shot shortly after the rescue. We discussed this event and much more.
