Comcastrodors, please welcome three-time mobilized, retired U.S. Army Reserve Major Montgomery Granger to the podcast. Major Granger was the ranking medical service officer at Guantanamo Bay from February through June 2002 and authored a book called Saving Grace at Guantanamo Bay: A Memoir of a Citizen Warrior, an account of his experiences and emotions being duty bound to care for and protect terrorists and murderers just months after the horrors of 9/11. He also served in Iraq at Abu-Ghraib to clean up the prison following the abuse scandal that took place there. Montgomery shares his personal values for the importance of treating captives with dignity and gives a soldier’s perspective on the abuses that took place, the interaction with CIA interrogators, and current US policy on detainment and action against ISIS. He also offers a very personal perspective on the stress deployment takes on soldiers and their families.
