Chad Hennings shares stories about dangerous flying missions during the Gulf War and Super Bowl wins with the Dallas Cowboys. We repost this episode to honor our veterans. 

Chad Hennings is the only Air Force lineman to win the prestigious Outland Trophy. The Dallas Cowboys drafted him despite his upcoming commitment to military service, much like they did with Roger Staubach. Hennings flew fighter jets during the Gulf War and later won 3 Super Bowls with the Cowboys on a team led by Troy Aikman.

Hear him share about those great Cowboys teams, what the locker room was like after the famous Leon Lett game, and how the Cowboys found out that Jimmy Johnson was replaced by Barry Switzer as head coach.
