RokuGuide Channel Description: The Pentagon Channel on Roku offers 19 podcasts. The content is geared towards those in the military, their families, and veterans, but much of the content will be of interest to non-military audiences as well. The conditioning training in the three "Fit for Duty" podcast series are just as good for civilians as for those in uniform. And the meals on "The Grill Sergeants" aren't just for the armed forces.
