On The Burmese Border: Free Burma Ranger

Season 2, Episode 5 of 8

The Burmese border is home base to an organization called the Free Burma Rangers, headed by Dave Eubank. The Free Burma Rangers serve around the world in combat zones, rescuing civilians from the frontlines of conflict and documenting atrocities in places like Myanmar and Syria. Dave's entire family - his wife and three children - are involved in the work of engaging and helping wounded civilians caught in conflict. Craig Martin and Earl Bridges try to keep up on horseback as they work out with the rangers on the "Ranger Runs" and wading through swamps as they train in Northern Thailand. They learn how challenging and stressful the work is, and how sharing love and hope with desperate people presents a new level of complexity and extreme danger. Currently, the Free Burma Rangers are in the middle of the struggle between military oppression and the regular citizenry of Myanmar. At great risk to their lives, Dave Eubank and his family are proving that love and good cannot just survive but even thrive in the midst of evil and injustice.
