Modern Warrior LIVE is a thought-provoking empowering production that brings together a compelling story of personal growth with dynamic musical performances. In just one year, the show has been presented in over 50 theaters, mental health conferences, high schools, trauma centers, veteran organizations across the country, and has been featured on Fox and Friends as well as NPR's Here and Now.

Modern Warrior LIVE is a theatrical performance about one veteran's experience of returning to civilian life and his recovery from trauma. Narrated by co-creator Staff Sergeant Jaymes Poling, who spent three years in Afghanistan as an infantryman with the 82nd Airborne Division, this autobiographical production details Poling's time in the military and his subsequent transition back home.
