Rich Hagedorn, a 25-year combat veteran, senior non-commissioned officer and inductee to the Nebraska national guard Hall of Fame, and most importantly childhood friend of Ken’s from over 40 years ago.

Here’s an infectious storyteller and recounts what it was like during the first Gulf war Since he has retired from the military on his off time, he works with disabled veterans and take them out into nature and guides them and hunting and fishing.

Now Rich is co-owner of Soldier Valley Spirits which is a veteran owned veteran, run Spirit company, making great bourbon, whiskey vodka and rum and winning many national awards. But more importantly their why is to give back to non-profit organizations that support veterans. With every sale they give a portion of each sale back to non-profit veteran organizations.

We are honored on the Gut Check Project to have a combat veteran who now is the co-owner of a business that gives back to less fortunate veterans.
