On this episode our guest is Wes Moore, CEO of the Robin Hood Foundation, author, and United States Army Veteran. Wes was born in Baltimore, but grew up primarily in the South Bronx, moving shortly after the death of his father at age 4. There he straddled two worlds: the private school he attended with wealthy classmates, and his neighborhood, where he watched many of his friends fall into drugs and crime. Wes was first handcuffed at 11. At 13, his mother sent him away to military school, where he thrived, becoming one of the top cadets. He then enlisted in the Army at 17, and went onto Junior College, before attending Johns Hopkins University. There he learned of the "other" Wes Moore, a kid who grew up not far from where he was born in Baltimore, of similar age, and was convicted to a life sentence for armed robbery & murder right about the time Wes became a Rhodes Scholar. He wrote an acclaimed book, "The Other Wes Moore" as a result of his conversations with his namesake. After Oxford, Wes worked in London, but shortly thereafter deployed with the 82nd Airborne in Afghanistan. He continues his record of service today with Robin Hood.
