Eric Spurling is a West Point graduate, a veteran of the U.S. Army, a former Green Beret & Commanding Officer, and he was the COO and second in command of a 104 person special forces element in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Today, Eric is one of the Co-Founders of the Alan Morgan Group and has a 5-month old, 24-pound baby. That’s not a grammatical error. Eric is truly a special individual, and in this episode we’re fortunate enough to dive into a portion of his story and path to where he is today.
