On the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, FourBlock Founder Mike Abrams reflects on the profound impact that day has had on millions of lives around the world, the nearly 3,000 lives that were lost that day, and the families that have had to endure the loss of loved ones. Mike looks back on his time serving in Afghanistan and the 20 years since that day. Let us never forget the ones that we lost on 9/11, the families they left behind, and the people who fought for freedom for 20 years after that day.


Welcome to the FourBlock Podcast, a show that examines veteran career transition and the military-civilian divide in the workplace. General Charles Krulak coined the term “Three Block War” to describe the nature of 21st-century military service defined by peace-keeping, humanitarian aid, and full combat. But what happens next? Veterans are often unprepared to return home and begin new careers. We call this the Fourth Block.

FourBlock is a national non-profit that has supported thousands of transitioning service members across the nation in beginning new and meaningful careers.

Mike Abrams (@fourblock) is an Afghanistan veteran, FourBlock founder, and author of two military transition books. He’ll be representing the military transition perspective. Lindsey Pollak (@lindsaypollak) is a career and workplace expert and New York Times bestselling author of three career advice books.
