How is Aaron Hale Cooking without Looking?

July 4, 2022

In December 2011, American E.O.D. tech Aaron Hale was immediately blinded by an explosion in Afghanistan. But rather than feel sorry for himself, he decided to make the rest of his life an adventure. Host Sergeant Major of the Army (retired) Dan Dailey sits down with Aaron as part of his series about entrepreneurship to talk about whitewater kayaking, how he overcome an even bigger disability, and how he re-discovered joy – and a successful business start-up – in making fudge with his wife Kayla.   

  • Guest: Aaron Hale, Co-Founder, E.O.D. Fudge and former Army Staff Sergeant
  • Host: SMA (Ret) Daniel Dailey
