Twenty One Gun Podcast

Aug 8, 2019

This was the first of hopefully many round table type open conversations with any veteran that wants to hang out, drink some whiskey and wax philosophical.
This week we have Mike Stojic who is a former Marine and owner of Revival 1869, a whiskey bar located in downtown Clayton NC which boasts a library of over 100 different types of whiskeys from around the world. Mike is a brilliant and highly motivated entrepreneur and it shows in the quality of the product he delivers. Visit for hours and events. 
We also have, Paul Cardenas who is also a former Marine and entrepreneur. He is the owner of Uncommon Valor Apparel, a clothing line established to support active-duty military, veterans, and first responders. I can attest to the comfort and quality of his clothing line and have even been witnessed mowing my lawn in a pair of UCV silkies! Check him out over at and use 21Gun at checkout to receive 10% off.
