He’s back with even more eyebrow-raising hilarity and deep-rooted conviction. Colonel Jay Clason willingly jumped back in the hot seat at Terminal Exchange to finish the tale from his last episode’s cliffhanger. Plus, he’s got more war stories and advice to share.

In the slush of winter, Jay questions why you learn to put chains on in a warm, dry environment? And he’s got a more realistic way to train.

And with so many stories to tell, we jump from tire chains to an encounter with a North American elephant – that is not a statue, I repeat, it is not a statue, and how visiting churches and showing up to God appointments throughout the nation has given him some fantastic stories to tell.

From conversations in American cabs to conversations on the hoods of Humvees in communist countries, come close, because Jay has some stories to tell.
