'Dirty Jobs' fame Mike Rowe is passionate about supporting our veterans.

Back in 2020, Rowe told Granthshala News that it’s essential for Americans to stand up for our veterans.

“We take a lot of our liberties lightly,” Rowe said at the time. “The Bill of Rights, every freedom in the Constitution, the freedom to move around freely. Every good and decent thing enjoyed was paid for in blood by men and women who walked away wearing uniforms.”

“We have abandoned them,” Rowe shared. “It may be too strong of a word, but we haven’t taken steps to help them regroup. We haven’t put them at the forefront of the line to get the help and opportunities they need once they get home.” Come on. It’s our own duty to return the favor. This is the biggest lesson I’ve learned over the years. We take things lightly. It’s a very human thing. But unfortunately, men and women wear what Uniforms are one of those things we take lightly.”

The soundtrack is available on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music.
