On this episode of the "Send Me" Podcast by SOCOM Athlete, host Jason Sweet is joined by former Combat Controller (CCT) Eric Hohman, running for Congress out of Texas' 28th District. Eric was born in Mexico City, in which his family immigrated to the United States. He received U.S. citizenship after being adopted by his stepfather. Prior to running for Congress, Eric served 15 years in the United States Air Force. While deployed to Afghanistan, Eric received a Bronze Star Medal for his actions during combat operations. The Air Force distinguished Eric’s courage under fire by awarding him with a second Bronze Star, with Valor, citing he “saved the lives of his Special Forces Team”. After separating from the Air Force, Eric founded the "First There Foundation," which provides support & resources to the Combat Control (CCT) community & their families. Eric is now a Congressional Candidate running for the House of Representatives, aiming to serve the United States on a new battleground. Don't miss this exciting & inspirational story of how Eric came from an immigrant of Mexico City to a decorated, elite warrior.
