Western Heat Wave Virtually Impossible Without Climate Change, Researchers Say

"When we had our record heat a few days ago, I turned to our friend Cliff, Mass. University of Washington, professor of Atmospheric Science and Cliff told us that if global warming played any role, it was minimal because temperatures have gone up about one degree over 70 years. These were temperatures 40 45 degrees. Above normal. So if anything, climate change contributed to about one degree out of this record, heat will imagine my shock surprise and I When I saw the Seattle Times a couple days ago, and their headline read without climate change record Pacific Northwest Heat wave would have been near impossible, researchers say. So I don't know who to believe. Sound times or Cliff Mass. I doubt if the Times will come on with me. So I got Cliff Mass on to talk about this. Good afternoon, sir. Good afternoon. Okay, so the cell times is directly contradicts because two days Prior to their story on the cliff, Mass Weather blog. You asked if global warming was the cause of the great heat wave and you said Science says no. So here you're telling us no sometimes is telling us? Yes. What are we to make of all this? Well, you know, you've got to look for where The Seattle Times got this information. Basically, a group of people got together and put together very rapidly. This report over a few days. And it's basically a political report. And in fact, it gives all kinds of advice about global warming. But people must do. But if you read the report itself, which I didn't detail its base, it's essentially flawed. And in fact It's not even consistent internally. Um, the headline says, Oh, this thing could never have happened without global warming. Then you read inside the report you say they say, Well, it could have happened, but by by random chance it could have happened by natural processes.

I'll ask you is carbon. Why is it that when I have a talk With people on the left. They can't say yes or no. The answer is no carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. It's never been a pollutant. It cannot be a pollutant, right? Mark. What do you ever run your car? Is that true? Or fault? I didn't say carbon monoxide genius. I said carbon dioxide. Anything in an abundance amount can be dangerous, but it's not an abundant amount. Watch an abundant amount, hooting. I said, What's an abundant amount? We're putting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. You're talking of planet. Of course we're putting carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. It's called a greenhouse gas. And without greenhouse gases we freeze to death. Yes. And if you have too much, so, how much is too much? You get too hot? You turn it. You're not answering my questions. You're talking.

All this talk is so absurd. The sun determines what our atmosphere does and doesn't do. There's not a damn thing we can do about it here on Earth. Can we make the air cleaner? Yes, but we're talking about controlling the atmosphere controlling the ocean. Controlling the weather. Whether it gets hotter here or colder here, I would ask you.

The Most Important Clinical Skills To Learn That Improve Client Outcomes

"Want to just say we won't have time to go into each and every one of these skills but people might be wondering 'cause line you mentioned just a moment ago that there are eight skills at military had referencing the bucks so just to list them and we might look into a couple of these in more depth accurate empathy acceptance positive regard genuineness focus hope eve location and then lastly offering information nodes ice so just to what people's appetites perhaps on what would be available to them if they were to read on and one of the things that glen and i were talking about the store. You all joined us terry was. Is there a skill of those eight that you would consider to be perhaps more important than the others kinda would win out if you had to choose one of her. Would that be if i only teach one of them. It would be accurate empathy. It's the largest effect size of any. It's been around long time. we understand it. Well know what it looks like in how to learn it and we use the first of the chapters on specific methods in our book for that reason that it's the one that just most consistently is associated with better client outcome hard to make the argument against it. Because i i mean i would probably choose them but to believing. Let me make the case for genuineness. Because genuineness is a skill that first of all it's hardest wanted to define it was the hardest chapter two right for me and we almost didn't put it in because the research for it is not as maybe as wrong or pithy as it is for the other characteristics but there is a pretty good case to be made for the fact that all of the other therapists skills. Don't really make a difference if there's not genuineness present. What good is empathy without genuineness would good is acceptance without genuineness and to me. This is a really important skill. Also because i teach a lot of graduate students in brand new therapists and this is always an issue for them right. They don't feel genuine because there's some new and awkward at it and a lot of times by task is to help shape them towards being more themselves as they're trying to do this therapy thing and sometimes i feel like that's my biggest task so i really think the power of genuineness can't be overlooked when you're talking about which when you laying messed

It's like yes, I left. I went to a restaurant. So what? You don't understand? I never leave. But I gave this speech about a lot of great people. And 90% of the crowd understood that we have to fight on while still I hate the term getting to the bottom of, but let's just use it here for the sake of time getting to the bottom of what happened in 2020. Some people in the crowd about 10% didn't want to hear that. That's okay. I'm not here to lie to you. You your title to your opinion. Some people think we should focus on 2020 only and forget 2022 2024. It's not worth it until we do 2020. Your opinion. You're entitled to it. It is a free country with the big our God given right to speech. I just vigorously disagree. I know it's not efficient have to focus on two things to focus on two things strongly. And vigorously at the same time. President Trump clearly agrees. We darn well better get to the bottom of what happened in 2020. While simultaneously focusing on 2022. We can't just forfeit away 2022 because of 2020 shenanigans. I mean, how are we ever going to figure out what happened in 2020? If we continue to elect House Democrats and and and and Senate Democrats as well, you think Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are going to help us in that endeavor? Of course they won't. That's absurd. We have to focus on parallel tracks. Regardless of the inefficiency of it. I get it. The human brain wants to focus on one thing at a time. We don't have that option. We don't have that luxury. We are election project managers. Now we are project managers for liberty and freedom right now. There is a liberty and freedom movement. You all are the anointed ones. Go in Peace to love and serve.

"Now for people listening who are positive psychology. They might be thinking the book the secret. Or if i think happy be happy. Can you explain. So you said some key words there. This study of psychological wellbeing flourishing. Can you help distinguish what is positive psychology and maybe also what is not positive psychology while even just the words positive psychology. Everyone thinks it's like we're walking around faintest the positive. I know your house is on fire but you know. Look the other way right. And that's really not what positive. Psychology means the positive in positive psychology. Just means that we study the plus side of psychology. Too when you think about it. Most of psychology has been in the study of mental illness. What's wrong with us. How to cure people how to fix people and that's actually good because people are suffering we want to know how to help people but just because you are not mentally ill does not also mean that. You're flourish shane. And so positive. Psychology is the study of. How do we take people who are. Maybe just languishing getting through life. Or just surviving actually flourishing living optimally. So that's really what the study of positive psychology is about so leaders will use it for example to say. How can i keep my people very motivated. Inspired doing their bath. Leveraging their strengths coaches will also use it on. How can i help. People improve their goal achievement. What is some of the science behind us. That can help. People achieve goals or schools will use it to teach kids how to be resilient. How'd you bounce back from adversity. How to improve your confidence and go after what you really want in life. I mean there's a you know a thousand other topics that i can talk about that. We study in positive psychology. That really is designed to improve your life and improve your psychological wellbeing and that also improves your physical wellbeing. Go hand in hand.

Let's 123 where all the rest of the Republican senators, every damn one of them should be signing this letter. In the letter, the group of GOP senators draw parallels between the treatment of the capital riders to the treatment of riders throughout the spring and summer 2020 and call for clarifications on punishment. At the spring and summer 2020. There were nonstop protests and riots after the death of George Floyd cities were set on fire in companies in small businesses were looted across the country. Republican senators Asked, among other questions, how many people were arrested for committing crimes during the 2020 spring and summer riots in federal law enforcement used Geo location data. For defendants cell phones to track riders down how many of the rioters were released on bail? The federal law enforcement utilized Geo location data from defended cell phones to track prosecutors associated with the unrest in the spring and summer 2020. If so, how many times and for what locations and riots? How many individuals who may have committed crimes associated with protests in the spring and summer 2020 were arrested by law enforcement using pre dawn raids and SWAT teams.

Bruce Guarantee. And he knows that he knows he's GONNA lose. And he's such a flagrant. Toxic narcissist. that he wants to take down the entire democratic system with if goes if he could reflect on these things, maybe he have. But he's such an unreflective person. and. he doesn't simply has no sense of decency and no sense of responsibility by them. And the words that he's been using over the past several weeks really aren't attack on the entire democratic process and he's dangerous. Yeah it is I. Think it's very dangerous.

"Gerry Callahan podcast. Face. That's The Day After you died Kirke called Jerry? Job Right away. Okay. All right. Well, thank Mike Check at any time. Okay I'm glad things are going one of the best parts about this is sure. Because of the weight loss I was selected for an experimental study where I. Got My eyesight restored. Sounds really worked out longer blood mike that's great. HUSBAND MICA and your universe to it. Seems to be doing I mean you know he took some time off he's going to a place where you struggling. Learning what to do because he can't see. And I'm not sure it sounds like he doesn't WanNa come back to the show Mike what would you say to that Mike if you could talk to them Tone to pull a Kirk. Okay. Thanks. Good to talk to you. To funniest Mike I've talked to you. This pretty funny Mike. He's still ended up. I just feel Kinda stupid about it. That's all. Well, this. fucking fucking. In My man feel stupid about doing. What's going on calling? What's happening? I'm just one Steve fucking think about that girl does that make you a pedophile? What's. The question? If you think about if you lost your virginity when you were younger than eighteen and you think. You. down. File Hall is Steve If he's thinking about that I'm just wondering if you think about the girl, you had sex with a sixteen. Yeah. No. Yeah. No I mean I would say. That's Like. But but but but he did it though he was saying he wasn't thirty eight when he did it or whatever. Yeah. I just had some psycho analysis of the show if you don't mind. I think he was sounds like he's well equipped to. Do it. Yeah. I. Mean. I would say mind but I'M GONNA. Let you do it anyway. Let's go segment. Let's do it anyway right. The first day corrobos comes in. I notice Kirk asked him to go out to dinner Steve I could tell was annoyed then following it was either the next day or the phone Monday. Kirk was like Oh let you don't think we're friends and seems like not we're not friends I could tell he was hurt by that. You ask him to go out to dinner and then a week lineker comes in is. Friends with anyone I'm not anyone's friends I think it's just to hurt people longing to be friends what consider Steve a work friends like I do I I mean I would go to Steve, that'd be fine I don't mind doing that. One last I ever been bus new ball. Mike. I think they're good for us. To see where you might be a little hypocritical kinds of reason why you hate WTI is that they fucking Church should've you and they didn't make your return trump. Let me give. You. Hold on hold on a second leave. Monty I would say the difference is I understand I understand what you're saying I was the differences I wanted to come back. and. They wouldn't let me come back. If Mike said to me, I WANNA come back. We will give it a chance Mike said to us right now he doesn't want to be part of the show. That you understand the difference there. But Hold on hold on hold on your hold on listen. Do you understand that? Do you understand the difference right there. Yeah but I don't think it's an apple samples compares I agree with that I grew that. Because we're using. I just thought I figured. You could actually honestly say that it seems carried a paper critical house. Where's the hypocrisy I don't see the hypocrisy. Mike said to us Mike sent to me I don't think only part of the showing I like being made fun of I'm going to take twelve weeks off I said fine. He talked to the Barstool people they did whatever agreement they had. That's that's not my part of it but whenever Mike's doing and then if he wants to come back and try great if he doesn't WanNa come back great I don't want him to come back if he doesn't want to come back I don't know. I don't see hypocrisy bars. ENTERCOM, locked me out aircraft said to me. We want you back I came when you have a note whatever when you're done with this, I came back early I gave them a note they froze me out of the job than try to force me out of the job. The policy would be if he wanted to come back and do this show and we were like now we've got this other little network that we're going to let. We're just GONNA. Let you do your youtube show. Why wouldn't kind of equate You wanted to go back and they didn't want to go back during the Red Sox and then you like Oh maybe you can come back one two days a week I heard that. In but again, Mike again. Again, Mike said to us. He. Business Jesus Christ. No, shop? For. Second. Mike No Mike said. He doesn't think he wants to come back to the show. It was this recent is this news. He said he was going to be weeks to go into a program. What you're saying is. I know. I know what you're saying tap. To one day is listening. Is US well, that's fine but it's the only it would be like if I had said to entercom. I'm going to take twelve weeks off when it's done I. Don't really think I'm I'm just not comfortable. I don't think I'm GONNA WANNA come back I don't want to get paid and then you know. It does that would be the Mike side where I just I was like. All right. Well, I'm taking a break out of good faith. They said fine they said, we want you to come back and then they wouldn't let me come back on the Air Mike was a bang on the door and we were just doing the show and by the way also pretending like it wasn't happening I, would say that's real hypocrisy but we've been I think really good and honest and transparent with Mike talking you guys about time. Exactly Louis nobody else would do showing the world would do and we're doing it and that's okay. The feels that way but I just I don't think that's the case I see. No hypocrisy. I see we're looking at it and I keep saying I know people may be sick of hearing me say if Mike wants to come doesn't WANNA come back but tries to come back that's a huge mistake and I don't want to be part of that. That's not good for him. I want him to be happy if he's happy coming back and doing the show. Great. Happy not doing the show. Great. If he's happy doing a show twice a week wonderful will figure it out. You know it's twelve weeks where we two of his twelve week thing. So you know I. Don't know I just a load up there.

"Like every Tuesday, every Friday I need the podcast that breaks down the Monday night football recap. And then on Friday previews games, I need a female perspective it's gambling and then I'm in I'm in. Need producer who is fucking blob idiot Moron Shithead to produce it. You're in luck. Oh good. Look that they are loaded up let's let's get the week started here. It'd be good the first hour plus you're so far good morning you're on the Kirkman and she the first caller of the week the controversial callers some love it some don't hello. I've heard it's going fine. Dina Raja Dino spend a while. Bullshit Hall of Famer Roger. Yeah Rough Week I was driving up to Boston my boy doctor Stallworth. You're driving dino. No you give you. All right. Okay. Now wasn't supposed to but whatever. I don't know why. But anyway, we were talking about going to look at the communist flag of China. Sure. I was hanging out at all last week. Really Neat. Really neat to see but I was wondering if you ever Miss During these times cure days of Jerry where you guys are just bicker and fight about that was that was some of the best time two, thousand, sixteen, I don't know if you look at into it now. Feels the show I'm certainly surely ended the political sub actually. Stephen. A spirited debate this morning. Dino you'll get to listen to. I think honestly like when I see Jerry on social media now I find it he has gone. So it's ironic because like he used to be like Oh these these guys like Bradford and I agree with them and whoever their Dale there in the you know they're. They're owned by the teams they get the other they're in the fucking tank. Goal Aren't you in the tank for trump like you ever criticize him ever like aren't you? The same Republican perspective is these beat writers who suck off players? He's so far to the right now don't listen to his idol by CMS social media. It's it's. It's honestly like there's no, I don't I don't mind. That's the Real Jerry I guess. But like there's no entertainment fight it's just reach. We James Woods re tweet Andy knows that his name re tweet. Chris Kirk tweet the seven Steve's the same Charlie Kirk Charlie Kirk who's Christo Chris Carter Golfer? And those nine different accounts. These different aims re re tweets, all these guys all day. But like there's this thing where like Jerry did not support trump in two thousand, sixteen put crews he would say trump's idiot and now everything he tweeted James Woods the other day who I like here's what's the actor but James Woods said that you know trump in his wife have gone through more than anybody in American history and you re tweet them like he's a fucking billionaire he really hasn't. He's not gone through more than like Louise Parini or somebody driving the work with the works, two jobs as a kid with cancer or some mom raising a kid by themselves like he really hasn't you know. Jerry's Jerry's doing this thing but you know Jerry's things disagrees with me here know who the disagreed with him in his world. An awful. When I was in Boca Raton what my grandfather were I'm sure you. I'm sure you were hey dino I asked just before who's on? Who's who four guys in your all second team rookie team. Chris Kirk I mean I have I ever here? Go ahead, you'll know. Are you. Are you? Are you challenging me to try to figure that out? Well, I'm GONNA GIVE YOU HINT Go ahead how I think one guy was seven, six or seven, seven, seven, six, I, think. This is ninety, four, ninety, three, ninety, four. Ninety Ninety three ninety four season Yup. Yup. The really courtney white. Guy. From the Mormon Rick Smits now, no Shawn Bradley. Rally another another another good former employer was on this team of very good foreign player lefty. Not Tony Tony Coach Yup another left he was on the team a guard you went to College Cincinnati played for the Lakers for a while as well. Now Nick. Exit. Nakazawa. And then. Lindsey Hunter. Come on. You know you should know that I would say. I don't hang out with them out with Dante Nick and some of the local. You have a weird we'll, we'll Cordeiro. Gross you know and this was. All right we'll talk. Yeah I just don't like I that the other day I was like well Jerry used to just bag on these guys who are in the tank for these guys. No matter what what's the difference? I don't think there really is a difference excitement I think politics gets a little bit more closely intertwined with your personality. I guess bin Laden words I suppose but like you don't you know. Like I'll say sometimes say trump's a fucking adams did a good job. I. Don't I don't I don't find that difficult others do who knows they loaded up Steve they're loaded up. Hey what's up compete? Oh. WHAT'S UP King Compete? WHAT'S UP Berry. What's what's What's what's up to this orders? Mike Throw Woods Mike Burning is today kingpin. What does he was? You spend the weekend in Vegas maybe. Not Vegas I mean you you buried Mike, Oh God. Yeah, I didn't realize that it would come off as me Burien and Heywood all it wasn't a big deal. It was not a big deal. We said was GONNA do sterile wall all day. You can hang out with your friends. It's really okay. Yeah but you know.

"Dr Answer that question by the way, it's wild, the trump is on. Methadone decks meth zone has transfer power to pence that story concerned people in the lunatics. So then. So then why isn't there in your mind there should be a transfer power because trump has the people around him have decided that it shouldn't put you think. There should be. I think it has the potential. There should be I just told you. I'm agreeing with what you're. Go I don't know and. Dr Zang I don't. I'm trying I'm trying to answer your question according to you. You have a president right now who is possibly turning even more insane because on the struck correct and the people around him who would initiate a twenty-fifth amendment proceedings the best equipped to judge whether that is needed. So they should be all this said people around the president, some some people who are on very powerful steroids like that get aggressive and fucking crazy. So there's a potential for that. Do you think there should be? Should be a twenty-fifth procedure transfer. That's what the twentieth amendment I know. I'm saying, do you think it should be people around him? Decide he's going crazy Steve I'm going to ask you what you think the people do you think they should have happened see I'm not going to be some fucking Dick trying to diagnose him from twitter video tape? No, we said there should be taxed because if he's going crazy than they should be. Okay. So you can find great. Okay. Good take. The mistakes politic's. Why wha-wha-what specific sounded backup you're the media's losing their mind. Well, we've got a little bit of Rachel Maddow, but I was more thinking the the the one who's really losing her mind is Jennifer Rubin the former Republican columnist for the Washington Post used to be the post was she still at the post they just took conservative at her out of her blogger bio, but she's so when he's transported to the hospital, she screaming, why do they take a helicopter? He should have been driven why did they take the helicopter and does little cruise around yesterday and she's like can't believe he'd be in a car with secret service agents she's just going absolutely fucking insane but the I think the general tone most of the people on MSNBC. Behaved themselves I watch Matto Friday night and she was she was pretty serious like she did the emergency. So show came back from vacation and talked a little bit about it. They're not on death watch tonight for the president. There is no reason to expect that the president is going to die from this Now of course, it is possible. Well. That's.

"So we had gone off of. We got off a post and By this time the son was up. We all were eager to find out you know if he was okay or not and I think the majority of us had thought like Oh. He's you know he's going to be fine. You know he's going to be okay and Than to hear that he had passed was pretty rough sucked. The one thing about that. That really stands out was is over at. He doesn't know him. He was one of the happiest people you'd ever met. You Know He. He turned every shit situation into Laughing and joking it was pretty funny because they actually got him to laugh and smile. You know while they were working on him does like the one memory I have is you know. We're we're sitting downland laying down fire and then you know everything stopped for just a second. We heard Oh you know you know his mild form you know Joe is okay. Can you smile for me. Any it smiled smiled. That was a one like key memory that I remember from that. It's hard because you can't let your emotions get the best to you. You know. I remember number one. We found out that broke down and started crying and We all like you know consoled each other things like that and we had to go back to work getting back to work meant getting the area where was killed cleaned up as dunning said there was no telling whether the ID planted there was incidental or planted specifically Lee as part of a larger attack. Either way the odds were that other common passages now had ID's and that wasn't good for anyone. So the marines patrolled the area more thoroughly trying to find I E D's before the local children did a couple of weeks later we got until they were there was an iud over kind of like in that same general area area where Obama had stepped on. Idee so our next mission was to go there and clear it you know. The locals were worried about their kids. We did the best we could the to let the locals that we were there to help and try to make the area safe as possible and that we you know we cared because we did you know we wanted to go there and we all have kids do do a lot of us had kids and you know we want the best for our kids. So that's what we were trying to give the best for them in their families. It was very early in the morning that they like a three o'clock in the morning. We knew that going into this area it was like a Hornet's nest of that A Oh we left early in the morning because we knew that it they would set up for us if they knew we were leaving you like during the day or something and we were cross through field and we had gone through this field many times at four and there always up footbridge there that we had us many times at four as like. You know what we're not gonNA take this footbridge time was of the essence you know. We had to get there before the John Ghana to make sure that we were set up so as like. Hey Look we're going to halt the patrol here. I'm going to sweep up me. My point are going to sweep up. You know the canal to find another place to cross. We're not GONNA Footbridge. So we halted the patrol. We started searching for an area where we could cross. We finally found a place and we had a lot of people with us. We are taking the the backup with us. We had another squad with us. There were a lot of people with us. We had an P with us which is the Afghan National Police. We had an a the Afghan national army. Couple of those guys are interpreters everything you know. We just had the everybody there. It was cold it was dark. We couldn't see shit you you know except for what we had with our NBC's so we had gone up probably about fifty meters away from this footbridge raptor. My pointed crossed Justin. He made it across and is like okay. Hey Man on three catch me because I was carrying it a whole bunch of crap. I was pretty weighed down and so I was like one two. The three there was just like this. Boom it was like straight out of a movie there's a giant flash and then that's really all your member as dunning said. It was cold in dark in the early morning. And there was no scenario where any member of the contingent was able to cross the canal without getting wet back at the footbridge. One of the Anna guys had grown inpatient and a little incredulous about the potential dangers of the footbridge. Especially when weighed against the prospect of waiting into freezing cold water. He decided to take his chances. Crossing the bridge setting off an ID with the concussed of power to knock donning fifty meters upstream unconscious then it came back to and woke up or whatever the cases and looked around and it was just shit was nuts again. Looked overn Brin Gooch whatever guys got hit in the face with shrapnel and always always a flashlight on him and there was blood everywhere and judd was standing there next to him. I'm trying to calm down Joe screaming or I'm sorry. A Gooch was screaming and then after that I was just like the entered start piling up like I said there it was chaos again. We didn't get shot or anything like that but there are a lot of people. Her lot of people injured so we started getting accountability may share what is okay and then we found Dominos Domino was He was dead. I don't know exactly what happened. That killed him but something from the ID you know obviously obviously killed him at said injured just kept going up and going up it was crazy the MP dad step on the idea we found him about one hundred meters away A.. And the only thing left and then was pretty much torso and I remember coacher. He was our squad leader. You know at the time coacher. Somebody else had picked the sky up and and it was just as torso rebound. This guy's face it on body parts all over the place so we had to play him in a body bag and carry him back. Four of US carried him back and then We had to get a chopper. And they're you know to get our wounded out of their garage and Williams had got sprayed in the face and he he couldn't see He got peppered in the face. Pretty good wish Dirt and travel and stuff like that and then Obviously we had to get dumbest on there as well. So yeah we we had to get chopper and there and so the mission continued. I mean myself coacher and when they told us that we needed to go back as we got knocked out by this I d you know unconscious so we went back to the five and the rest of the guys continued on with the mission. The anxiety diety of being out of the fight was tough on the three marines recovering from their injuries. And it only heightened after the company lost another. Marine dunning was relieved to get back doc with his guys doing patrols ferreting out. Id's and finally working with the Marines who had come to replace them so they could head home for definitely. Ready Tab done now. You know we lost a lot of guys a lot of awesome guys and dumb. Everybody just wanted to to just go home at this point you know ever. We had our job to do. But you know we're ready to Ready to go is starting to wind down. You're starting to get a little anxious. You know you have two months left than a month within your dislike fuck. It's gone by so slow now. The last couple of days were actually probably the hardest because being in a leadership role you had to go and go on the next patrols with the unit that year you know replacing you and I disliked fuck. You know we're going back out there and all the other guys are staying back you know to Continue their stuff ready to go home and here you are back on patrol. Show everybody you know this. Is this area. Stay away from this area. It's even more tense because because now you're like man that made it this far. You know I don't WanNa get I don't WanNa get fucked up on the last patrol. You know I remember on one patrol. We started I started taking fire. And this guy just was like he kept poking standing up and shit like that trying to find out where they were coming from. And we're like get the fuck downing. I'm going to grab him like threw him like behind. Cover like what the fuck are you deal and get the fuck down and we will get you know get an attic and take care of this threat. He was just standing there. This kind of dumbfounded at what was going on. So it's like I said When you go out on patrol with these guys that are replaced? Knew a lot of them are her. They're not combat hardened at all they're just like how we were when we got there. You know it's not any seen really any combat. We were brand new to this and I always always give the analogy that we were now at the beginning when I told you about that British guy who was stabbed at the ground trying to find the Saudi that was us and we were there. The new guys is looking at him going. Oh my God. He's fucking crazy as they headed home. Dunning was beginning to feel a little ambivalent about his career as a marine but with the excitement of getting back back to the US the future was still hypothetical. He had no idea how quickly the future would become the present though and what he would have to face before he could settle with his time in Afghanistan.

"The most dangerous difficult thing about pushing out into previously unchallenged. Enemy territory is is that with the exception of firepower. The advantage belongs to the enemy they already know the territory and have it laid out to minimize their risk while maximizing maximizing the potential for killing or maiming American and Afghan forces. Yo Di we had to take him out to this bridge that the Taliban bit using to transfer weapons From one side of the canal. The other This was like the major canal between Cowboys and Redskins two main roads and there weren't a lot out of bridges. They were very far. There's a lot of space in between every bridge so once he ODA gotten up on that bridge to blow it up. They started taking our PK. Fire you know Alah heavy heavy fire and there was one squad which was us on one side and it was another squad on the other side and I believe there was also another squad just ready to go just in case we needed them so the firing was actually coming from our side ahead of us a few hundred meters out so we moved up to. You suppress them. So you know nobody from your d got her and that's when one of our guys step on the ideal Veira. What's actually really crazy about? You know that ideas that myself my point man and I think about two-thirds the squad at stepped over it. You know there was it. It was an L. shape kind of a thing. We're pushing up and we went right to get behind his canal. You know for a little bit of cover to set to shoot back and suppress the enemy and and Right at the part where it turned right. There was a footbridge that went left. And that's where was that and a bunch of stepped over it and not stepped on it and and I don't know what was happening on the other side just because everything was going on with us at the moment but they knew that once they start shooting at those people up on the bridge that we were going to be moving up and they had just they had an ideal place there we started taking effective fire. Were in the middle of this field pinned down shooting back trying to figure out. Well so what's going on and That was one of the craziest days lance corporal. Heavier OV- era was the unlucky marine to have tripped the I e D besides adding to the chaos of the continuing firefight. The explosion had the added effect of increasing responsibility on the Marines. He's on one front. They had suppress the enemy attack on the e- od guys and on the other. They had to arrange for Obama's Medevac out of the area. Of course the the appropriate action was the same in both cases dispatched the enemy but working to save the wounded marine heightened the sense of urgency. Yes so we left her in the middle of the day and then I think at this point was probably like mid afternoon. I'll I don't know if it was for that attacks specifically or if they just place it there because they knew we'd used it prior that little footbridge when they knew that we'd used it prior to that but It worked out in their favor is like I said all hell broke loose and we just find that the canal. They're I'm trying to make sure everybody was OK. Trying to see who was her who needed first-aid over was the only one that was hurt at the time was the idea. What off I remember? Judd God are Corman had jumped over to him because the ID had flipped over to the other side of the canal and it wasn't a big canal by any means it was you could definitely jump across prostate. It was just like a tiny little feeder to the fields. I remember looking over and the other is dust and rocks that were falling on us. You know tiny little pebbles goals and stuff like that and I remember looking over and seeing Gwen when a guy squad yelling at you know Barragan hit our stepped on an ID so jut immediately. We like with no regard himself just jumped across canal and started working on him and so they were taking care of him. While we UM insiders suppressing the enemy and you know taking care of that so we could get a chopper in there to get out of there. We saw these guys they were crossing. open-field pie maybe like like one hundred two hundred meters away once Veira stepped on the. Id You know we. We knew we couldn't justify the canal so we got up and you know we gotta crossed into the field and we were just laying down his open field. We didn't have any cover at all. But we knew that we needed to protect Vera to get him out of there. So you know we were going to do whatever we could to make sure that that happened to make sure that the guys that were working on them were safe or safe as could be We we started calling you know choppers and things like that that was it you know once once they came in there taking care of that situation pretty quick with the enemy driven back and Oliveira evacuated the marines. Were able able to take on a new mission combing the area for the dispatched fighters and or their equipment the automation do you gotTa Finish your mission and We had to go and do our battle damage assessment bad set aside to go and try to get some Intel. Find out where these guys were if we could find him whatnot so we actually went cleared a whole bunch of houses and villages and we're looking for any signs of people building. ID's in the area any guns is that they weren't supposed to have things like that so we know at this point where not only are we tired all stuff in our pissed. I think we went on for like another four or five hours during that it was dark out it was late and we had to go back the way we came Sweden of going back and back the basin from there was a key to get your shit ready we got we.

"War Looking back on bootcamp is an interesting enterprise. Most recruits are not yet twenty years old when they have the experience France and the essence of it can be hard to capture like so many people looking back on themselves as children. There's a fondness for the past that maybe it didn't deserve for marines though and especially for combat veterans. Even the worst days of boot camp are amusing. In retrospect I just call. It wasn't for me you know I went there and I just They really enjoy it. I did it was getting anything out of it so decided to take another path and like I said I I knew I was going to join the Marine Corps. I just didn't know when. Yeah my mom you know she. She definitely was concerned because I told her you know. She asked me what I wanted to do. And I said well you know I want to be in the infantry. I WanNa go do that. So she added concerns and she was worried but overall she supported me one hundred percent. She never tried to Give me you know not do it or anything like that. went to Paris island and the first day of bootcamp was actually kind of funny. They do their typical. You know screaming at. You're getting off the bus on the footprints all that kind of stuff and then and they send you through The doors for the first time. Then you go get your gear. Get your haircut but I remember when I got there. You know I'm going to get my haircut and they they go real fast to get everybody through and I remember. My hair was a little bit longer. And they went to cut my hair and They missed a spot so I had a big old patch natch in the back of my head that they had missed and you know the JOE started. Were Kinda like dragging me around by. That was pretty funny. You look back at it now and you just like man The time it's sucking I didn't want to be dragged around with my hair. They thought that they thought was funny. Apparently you know they were grabbing on it and you know come this way and go that way and sadly little rat tail for like the first twelve hours before they finally fixed it. I had to cut it off with scissors out of my sewing kit. DUNNING had signed an extended contract attract enlisting for five years as infantry security forces. It would mean training beyond the regular school of infantry but he felt like it would give him an edge in the post marine world where he hoped to get a job as a police officer. Security forces often have two years of specialized work but as two thousand six ended and the US prepared for the two thousand and seven Iraq surge infantrymen were in higher demand than security force details so dunning and a dozen or so other guys were pulled from the talent shuffled back into the regular regular infantry with the two eight they had just gotten back from Iraq and they had a pretty crappy deployment when they were there so that was another little culture shock back when we got there as well. 'cause we had really not all the stuff about war that we knew about. We'd seen in movies or documentaries. Whatever and these guys had just gone? I'm back and they had a pretty bad deployment. They lost a bunch of guys and they were eager train us but at the same time they are still trying to deal with off all their emotions and stuff like that so you know everybody's hissed off and you know you have all these new guys joining all these boots and you don't WanNa be a boot sucks but everybody's GonNa go through it. Aw just hearing the stories and things like that knowing that we were getting ready to go do that too was said is just kind of like damn. You know we're here. It's time to go so we pretty much knew. We were going on Iraq when we get to two eight like we're slated for next appointment and we immediately started doing the workup so we knew right away that we were going to To Ramadi in Ramadi was an extremely dangerous place you know. They caught collusion number. Two very deadly Very hostile environment. And that's what we that's what we were prepping for. You know. We went over there thinking that there was gonna be fighting every day was going to be Hell but we got there and not being that you know we we essentially just went out and found. Id's and we were more like police officers there than anything else. We were just kind of like okay. security force for them but people Ramadi the two eight lawsuits guys to an Aidi attack during the transition out. But dunning was relatively insulated in from the Ramadi he was expecting it was something of a disappointment at the time. Missing the chance to fight and being relegated to a glorified police patrol. which ironically was what he would've been doing any way if he hadn't been in Iraq? Still he came home with a sense of unfinished business and a focus on a long term career as a marine. A knew you were going back. I didn't know if we're going back to Iraq or Afghanistan but I felt more like I'm thankful that you know as bad as it sounds. You know we add. We'd lost two Marines but it could have been a lot worse. I guess in hindsight so I counted as a win a lot of people they want to be part of that. You know. Combat Action Ribbon Club. I guess it's kind of like a like a little club that everybody wants to be part of but I think everybody would much rather have their friends here. I was actually. I was actually ready you to go the long haul you know twenty years and get out but nothing ever goes according to plan so yup. I'm going to be a lifer and I was ready to go like. Let's get this workup. So we can angle back and we had a job to do and We needed to you. Know do I- jobs so I was. You know we got back. I was like well. Let's get ready to go to the next one. We didn't get told we were going Afghanistan until we had just completed are combined arms exercise in California. We we had gotten done. We had our little debrief and it showed up and said hey you know we know you guys did this. Whole workup for Iraq but We're actually going to send another unit to Iraq and you guys are going to Afghanistan. I guess they selleck. We're more combat ready than a unit. That was supposed to be going there but we are grateful. That's what we wanted. We wanted to go to Afghanistan. We knew if we went to Iraq. We're GONNA have another deployment like we did. Prided added that. Nobody wanted that. We all wanted to go into fight. The good fight you could say if the marines were surprised by how different Ramadi was when compared with their expectations nations Afghanistan certainly would meet them camp bastion. A British base in the Helmand province still was mostly under construction in two thousand nine and as the Marines were beginning acclimatized to the heat. They were also getting a real sense of what it would be like. Once they started their mission out beyond the wire they stuck us in the very back of the base we stayed in these giant white tents. There was really nothing I mean it was just a giant base and then you know on the other side. They had a few things built up. We got on some the jobs and they sent us down to With a British were at we met up with them and They started taking us out on patrols and stuff like that it was cool. They were awesome. They were really cool. People people you know they had 'em are as we Murray's would swap Mao. We talk share stories and it was like hanging out with your buddies. You know they were awesome. People we are on a night patrol with the British and he was sweeping. He's gotTa hit here and my point man was with him. The guy that was doing the sweeping in British guy that you know you could tell they've they've been there for a while already because he just got on. The ground started digging proud and away with his little K-bar they're just try to find US ide- and we're all holy Shit. What's this guy doing? He's crazy we so we all started backing up and so it was kind of like A. That was kind of like a funny moment. We're just like this guy is absolutely crazy. Just trying to produce thing there. We're just out on a patrol role and started seeing things like we started finally like mortars here and there and then I'll honestly we just started getting shot at and we you know we took cover and while we were there they would would just shoot at you and then run so it was kind of like a game of cat-and-mouse shoot at you Ron. And that was pretty much it for the hold old appointment so it was really frustrating. The shooting in running would dominate their entire deployment but it was also part of what they expect it. Their mission was to keep pushing out beyond where any American forces had been and to disrupt Taliban operations capturing or killing as many of the enemy as possible along the way Eh what they would discover though was that this was a game with which the Afghan fighters were all too familiar. I don't know what the general idea is for. Are The people in Afghanistan Iraq or anything like that. But they're not stupid they've been fighting. You know wars like that for a long time now and I remember one time we were. We actually on a long range patrol. We were heading back to our base there and We're close we. I think we were like maybe seven hundred meters away or something. We were really close and We we started getting shot at the rouser Hittin- super close like they had some pretty good precision fire going on us and we looked over to our right where it's coming from and the sun was shining in our eyes so we were like crap. We can't see anything so we actually started a banana peeling back towards this vineyard and there was a giant wall and we got in there inside that vineyard they just kept shooting at us and then We just like Oh shit you know that was super close. Made sure everybody was OK. They're like what do you want us to do. Do you want to pursue pursue them and go after or do you want us to come back. And I'd like now go after him. We bounded in this field. It's seemed like forever but I think is because the field was filled with water and mud and it was extremely difficult to get through and here we are taking shots while trying to bounce this field and we had a crossover a couple. Now's well just to get to this building. They made their houses out of mud. I mean it was just a it was just a mud house and when we cleared it and made sure sure there wasn't like booby-trapped or anything like that they It's just a giant. You know you open up and there's giant courtyard and you could tell there had been animals. They're I think they're actually were still some animals in in there and There couple rooms here and there but that was it. I mean nothing else. We cleared it out the way we're supposed to and like I said they had gone. They left so you know we did all this work and got over there. And they're gone. I mean we found. We found a cache in there and I d materials and stuff like that so it was not a total loss. But we'd gotten there and like I said they had just they had gone already. They're out to me. I think there was only one or two people and there was is probably you know twenty or more of us so they had gotten out of there they want really set up to fight us. I think they were just trying to get lucky. Skin hit one of us. There were a lot of attacks of opportunity like that with the Taliban courting dumb luck and choosing to live to fight another day as dunning things said the people on the ground. We're used to this kind of war and used to being outgunned and outnumbered. Of course. It wasn't as if the Marines didn't have their own levels of of expertise and combat experience but they also had a different objective. They were trying to establish some sort of sense of order choosing their targets. Carefully while dodging traps and attack from an enemy committed to the opposite..

"The turret that made a huge impact on marines and like to show like. I'm willing I'm willing to put myself out there and put myself in harm's way for you and never doubt that I would never never do that for you. You know. And so that s how you lead Marines especially as a new unit not really cohesive yet not really haven't trained together that long you have to just show them with with action and not just speak loud words. You know. Most Times though. Saban's was making calls from inside the truck that he would have hated to have made if he was on the Outside but it developed him as a leader and gave him a little more insight into being in command of Marines. Who Won't stay down when they're hurt? We had run. Supplies is to win. The new newly built patrol base still really small but the only problem with that patrol base with there was only one road in one road out and then as we rollback out truck one had mine roller and Of their mind roller. Hey the pressure plate Di di was massive. It was a huge. Id that Monroe ric. It's through surfing around like it was nothing it went through the air. Like you were just throwing legos. I just knew that everybody in that truck was gone. There is no no question about it and so like immediate immediate panic. Fear was just inside of me by somehow had enough restraint to be like all right. This Mel do your sweeps. Don't just go running up to the two that truck there still could be secondary. Id's and that was the longest ten minutes in my life like V.. Sweeping up from our vehicle and like me staying in the vehicle. Half the put my marines out in harm's way to v Sweet because I had to call in reports and get people here. You have to get recovery vehicle here. Get you here her get chopper on on stationed in case we had the Medevac. Anybody like I'm used to being the guy out there thrown lead toward people in put myself in harm's way I mean that was that was a long long period there. They finally got up there and I was able to go the trucking. Get up there with them and let the rain. The Beano K.. Set for the driver like he took a pretty pretty big hit and was had pretty massive concussion from that same kind of like yeah. I'm okay I'm okay. And then when I watched him get up and start to walk because we had we had to go get our stuff like just because the monitoring got hit in like we have tires and stuff and and and gear thunder road like we. Just don't leave it there yet. Go get your stuff stuff and watching him start to walk in like I could see him not walk in a straight line and then I looked in his eyes he can just kind of see his eyes and see the way his eyes look into his pupils are and like. It's just like you know what. Hey man sit down like we. We need to make sure that you're GONNA be okay. Our chopper on standby like I did my duty and had them on standby just in case. So they're already there. The lesson learned from Volusia. You know when you think something is not that serious but that that marine ends up not living so at this point like my Buddy Rodney has his section there now to help us out he heard the call. You got his Ford trucks out. There in Rodney comes up to me. And he's like. Hey man like I'm here. What do you need Abraham? Can you set up on my. Get a medevac. In here. I got him out of there. And that's Sasha done Helping coordinate during larger attacks required savings to sit tight sometimes in a way with which he was uncomfortable but it did give him perspective which was something something he would absolutely need to rely upon as he headed home and faced an existential threat for which he had no response. We had the birthday ball coming up and on the detail so we were coming down the stairs. That morning I had to go to practice early that morning for the ball and the Carter was just you at the bottom of the stairs. I guess what you would call the definition of lethargic and so Kelly and her stepfather Her stepdad Carter to the Naval Hospital. The Er and that's when she called me and said that after a cat scan and found they've found a brain brain tumor in his head and he was about to get a life flighted to UNC Chapel Hill. Unfortunately for me I shut down. You know like when there's nothing I can do you and I just I don't know you just wait to the next moment in that. I like hitting like getting. They're getting the family there. We finally get to UNC. We we still women. We got a three month old at this time. We have a newborn child still and he has to go first brain recession Surgery I mean. I can't tell you anything from that like it's just out of body experience. I just don't I what do you do like you. Just sit there and you wait for updates and There's no there's no training or fighting or tactical decisions you can make to change the outcome. After more than a month of operations recovery's Carter was cleared to go home. He was diagnosed with autism by the time. It was five and spends about twenty four hours a week in different physical and cognitive therapies. Saban's who is slated to head back tomorrow successfully applied to the school of infantry where he intends to close out his career training marines about how to fight but also about how to live with the ambiguities of purposeful restful inaction learning to weight and to stay strong. So that when you're ready to act you're also able to in his spare time. Saban's writes a blog about his family's experiences with Carter's diagnosis to help other military families find their own ways through. He also publishes fiction based on his experiences differences in Afghanistan and Iraq. It takes courage to expose yourself to enemy fire in the line of duty and it takes four to to to live in a world where inaction is is the best alternative you have but it takes time and experience to learn how to Parse the two.

You know the marines had been traveling with an embedded reporter and it's as likely as anything else that when there were reports that CBN's was shot in the head by a sniper rumors of his demise began circulating for savings. Though the worst part at that time was being kept out of the fight. This was during a transitionary period for brain injury diagnoses eventually getting blown up by three. He I dis over. A short period of time would be enough to get a person sent home but for Sabin. Staying was still an option and there was really no chance he would have opted to leave early even just staying in the hospital long enough to be diagnosed was really hard on him. I hated it. I don't mean like telling people like who would you get your purple heart four and like saying saying You know I got shot in the head like tat to me. It's like a fake like a fake badge of honor like there's some people in the hospital that got hit pretty rough you know and they deserve to be are there and they have their scars in their wounds to prove it and so I I wanted to get out of there as soon as possible and get back into the fight when I got back to Ramadi a lot of people or a lot of the command was wondering why was back and I actually wasn't allowed even go on but troll no more I stood radio watch for the rest of the plummet for about a month. I wasn't allowed to do anything I was. I was much done. There's nothing worse than hearing of a section of yours that you've been with in fought with through two deployments employments go out there and have some stuff happened to him while you're sitting there and radio and you know you should be with them. I mean even to the point to where you know they they had taken an RPG through their windshields and my truck the truck that I'm normally in took an RPG. Two the windshield the window. Concave Dan in in somehow contained the blast RPG tour. Nobody was hurt but after then come back and seeing that like I was so frustrated with everything that I just to do myself I was just so so frustrated I kept trying to get back out there and get back with them. The docs wouldn't clear me to go back out and Aw I was pretty upset about the whole ordeal back home. Saban's caught a bit of a break. He met Kelly whom he would eventually marry and was assigned. What would turn out to be a non on combat deployment? As part of the Marine Expeditionary Unit he spent two years away from combat but it took a different kind of toll on him when the tour ended Sabin would have to decide whether he still wanted to be a marine and reckon with the implications of having more responsibility but less power to act.

"Jeffrey fabens didn't want to be marine green so much as he wanted to do something exciting or at least interesting. He had mostly figured he'd go to college. And maybe into wildlife conservation before he stopped to talk with submarines who had set up a recruitment table in the cafeteria. After that it was as simple as signing up at boot camp was a was a blur for me. Just is house used to being alone. I'm used to like not having gone out to parties and I wasn't big onto hanging out with people and you know went to school. Did my thing came home. Did Chores Chores and that was that was my life. Every marine has his boot camp stories and and the things they screw up in. I'm no different OUTTA short senior drill instructor in in one time. Tom Standing up at the quarterback and getting some field day work then he said something to me and I just didn't hear him so I instinctively bent over because he was super short to put my ear next to his mouth. That didn't go over well either. After Graduate Nestle why I went to Camp Lejeune. Two to three eight and there wasn't much time in between like once graduating school. Victory you get on the bus cause stress right down the road from Camp Lejeune you know. By the time I was picked up and we transferred over it was already late in the afternoon on Thursday night so honored man. Dark in the Barracks Marines run round donors supposed to do and then being told told. Okay you need to get ready like we're leaving soon. You got here when that a lot of time to prepare. That was that we you know weeks later. We're going on Christmas. It went pretty fast Of course everyone knew I was getting ready to go and and I was deploying somewhere at that time. In two thousand and five. The News and the media on flu wasn't wasn't the best for everybody but they know again. That's just one of those things like me and my family. My particular immediate family like we're not the emotional type were we're not the hugs and kisses in the Cryan is just pay. This winter told me to do all right. Roger Go do it. Okay see you later like. That's just how it is for for for us. As a gunner savings was prepared to spend his deployment up in the Turret scanning for issues and potential attacks. The thing was while Volusia wasn't exactly quiet. In the aftermath of the second battle of Lucia. The area was less kinetic than it had been in years which made for long mind numbing. Patrols switching spots was a way to keep everyone fresh in the absence of the opportunity for rest and that is how savings found himself behind the wheel of a Humvee instead of up on the weapon when he experienced his first I e D attack the between SARS. Hey savings you know come drops truck for a little bit. Let's get the driver up in a turret. Let them get some fresh share. Wake up a little bit. A Humvee is not that hard to just get in and start. Start driving if you can drive another vehicle so we're talking about just a basic Humvee around talking about the wraps wraps the MTV's truck for onto forty and we were just driving along and then trump three got hit right in front of us go by but of course like first time. I'm driving a Humvee. First Time at midnight I encounter of somebody trying to somebody trying to inflict harm on us. The first thing I did was slam on the brakes. What does anybody do driving a vehicle when something happens unexpected? And we're the last truck so you gotta remember like of truck three is getting hit by an on. ID truck wanted to our past the blast site already. It wasn't a direct hit on truck. Three was off to the right side of it on the flanks. Didn't do any damage Flick any harm to anybody but here I am you know. PFC Or private savings where was at the time slammed on my breaks stopped mill the road while the other three trucks are pushing. Pass it in in gone on their way the between certain sitting next to me he starts looking at me screaming my face I go go go go through the kill zone and so I just hit the gas and started going everybody else pushing on. They don't know we're not driving lights at the time were driving in. BG's we're all blacked out so you don't see headlights. It's not a good time for someone to freeze up and just sit there knowing what I know now is like a as a leader in the Marine Corps in teaching those tactics like it could've could've went all kinds of wrong just from that one thing you know it's easy for a machine gun turret someone shoots at you you shoot back you you get directed to suppress somewhere you suppress somewhere. Keep Your Eyes Open Stay awake better job but when you start driving a truck of five people lives in your hands. you've got to pay attention in what you're doing little things that go wrong during combat situations if you survive to learn from them. Make up the stories that you can tell after to help other people but they also initiate an increasing sense of wariness. Can you drive a Humvee. Of course I do. You know what to do when the vehicle in front of you gets blown up. Not necessarily. It's this undermining of common practical. Everyday things things that begins to unmake someone who has never seen combat and begins to build a person who has the first casualty in this transformation. is the sense sense that there is such a thing as safety during combat mission. No matter how innocent the situation appears I remember coming back from patrol. Going back on collusion had got hit by a small. Id hit the back of one of the trucks. Hit the back right tar well and like a little a little. A little piece of shrapnel hadn't gotten through just a thin piece of metal in hit one of the Marines I knew just behind the flack jacket. He was fine he was smiling. He got on the plane in a sentence out. Everything was good with him. And then you know about two hours later we got the news. Hit died in route. And so that and that's one of those things that have always stuck with me because you can learn lessons from everything but you can never take suffer granted in like just thinking about how you know an. ID goes off. A majority of the shrapnel gets hit but aside of the vehicle in one piece somehow gets through one unarmored in peace on the truck and somehow hits this kid right behind a sappy plate and somehow even though he's smiling and giving you high fives on the plane now how he didn't make it two hours later like you can never you gotta be ready for anything. You never know what the outcome could be any always got prepared for what that outcome they result in. And that's what made it real for us. You know the drive around for eight hours a day you see here. Their ideas are relatively small mall. You're not getting hit by massive idees early in the deployment. When you get in a firefight you can't see who you're shooting? Now they're usually father away in a sporadic fire. But that that is what made the deployment real like. Hey this is where you're at. This is what you're doing is is not a joke. It's not it's not playtime. You're not just here trying to collect the paycheck like it's it's the real. There always seems to be a turn. Where a person's training and expectations about what a combat deployment will be morphs into practical tickle experience and understanding for savings? It took most of the tour to get a handle on the gravity and even then it wasn't very informative. Sometimes you you make a mistake and nobody dies. Sometimes you get everything right and still lose a person. Everyone would rather be lucky than good. If given the choice but understanding outstanding how much being good help stack the deck in your favor is quite a motivator. It wasn't until they wound up. The tour got home and started their new training cycle. Let's savings had a realistic view of how critical training was for preparation. I'm pretty certain that when we got back from collusion within a month we knew what we were going again again and when it came to Ramadi six months later even though your unit just gets back from a combat deployment. You can't just assume that we're on the advanced level. Now let's just go and keep going for more be left off Volusia like you have to start. Fresh were doomed Tax We're doing hikes everywhere. Were doing live convoy invoice training the stuff that I should've went through before it went to Fallujah but I never got the chance to to now Mike Okay. So this is how it's done this west post to be the biggest thing thing was the ID lanes basically you just you just take strip land and you know the guys are out there planting these ID's that the way they want them so if you step on if you stepped on a pressure plate you're going to have an explosion will the way the ID lane we did had the explosion part of Vit- pretty far away so even though you stepped on a pressure plate right there in front of you explosion go off pretty far in the distance but it would be enough to let you know like hey you just messed up. Of course they would go super hard. Make it extremely difficult so when we did these. Id Lanes like we failed quite a bit and that started to to it. Kinda start to worry like man. I can't do this in training. How do in real life but they did it? They made it that hard for a reason because once you went into the the actual live version of it in combat. We're actually doing pretty good at finding them and knowing indicators look for Palooza at this point point it was just too fast for me to you. Know it's not going to be great as on the news you read in and heard about the push they did but it just so fast so quick of a turnaround time for me like I. I didn't have time to get nervous or worked up about it but now Ramadi something. I'm not hearing a lot about on the news but I was. I was super nervous about going to remedy at this point. Because the the workup it was just for the whole six months of training for that is like this. Where you're going you know? Urban urban type of warfare is gonNA be real firefights. You always always hear the phrase. It's gone it's not gonNA be nothing Flus won't be a lot worse and just from the workup itself. Even though I'm not hearing about Ramadi on the news every day I mean I'm super like I am. I'm scared for this on. Saban's concern was justified. Both by how high their training Tampa was and how things would be on the ground once they got to remodeling one of the reasons the Falange tour had been disproportionately quiet. was that many cleared out. Insurgents had made their way into Ramadi and were digging in and waiting for the Marines to show up when they did it would result in a prolonged conflict with far reaching consequences.
