Get Up Nation®! My name is Ben Biddick, the Creator and Host of Get Up Nation® Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Ken Falke. He is a 21 year combat veteran of the United States Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) community and retired Master Chief Petty Officer. Ken is highly respected around the world as an innovative and forward thinking thought leader on the subjects of wounded warrior care, military and veteran transition, counter-terrorism, military training, and innovative technology development. Ken’s passion is caring for his fellow combat veterans and their families. He’s the chairman and founder of Boulder Crest, an organization focused on the teachings of Post-Traumatic growth, and the EOD Warrior Foundation. Ken spends the majority of his time educating the public and private sectors on the issues surrounding the long-term care of our returning military personnel and their families. Ken is also a serial entrepreneur. Ken was the Founder and CEO of his first company called A-T Solutions. This company was a recognized international expert and valuable global asset in combating the war on terrorism. At the forefront of providing training and consulting services in the Anti- and Counter- Terrorism industry, A-T Solutions was named four consecutive years to the Annual Inc. 500 fastest growing privately held companies in the U.S. Ken was also recognized in Entrepreneur Magazines’ Hot 500 List, in Washington Technology‘s “Fast 50”, Smart CEO’s “Future 50.” Ken was the winner of the very prestigious Greater Washington Area Government Contractor Award in the category of companies from $75M to $100M. In 2010, Ken was named as the Entrepreneur of the Year for the Fredericksburg, Virginia Regional Chamber of Commerce and selected as a finalist in the prestigious Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year program. Ken, it is an honor to have you on the show. Welcome to Get Up Nation®!
