Mike Rowe's Returning The Favor: Raising the Roughriders

RaisingRoughRidersThumb-2

48 years ago, Bryan put on a uniform and went beyond the call of duty in a place called Vietnam. When he came home, he put on a different uniform, and served the people of Long Island faithfully and well as a New York cop. Today, Bryan’s uniforms are packed away. But his need to serve is alive and well.

Meet the amazing group of people Bryan has chosen to serve, and watch as the crew and I once again attempt to return the favor.

You’re gonna like the way you feel. I guarantee it.
