"So now I get to be around a lot more recipients and it's just such a privilege I get to read. I'm reading a lot more about him for educational purposes and a loan at dawn, the legend, Roy Benavidez. I mean, some of these, I mean, it's just so inspiring to me and I serve for 26 and a half years and I was like, gosh, I wish I would have read some of these stories or knew about these stories when I was younger. But just a place, a transcends politics. It's not a Democrat thing or a Republican thing or you're left or you're right. I mean, it's about us being united in a place that you can come and feel proud that you're American and be inspired and just to know that when you walk through and it's like these are ordinary people. I mean, just like us, these are ordinary people that just happen to do extraordinary things. And then maybe we could find something inspiring from what they've done that we could do in our life, whether you're a single dad or you're a single mom or you're a doctor or a nurse during COVID. I mean, there's a lot of heroes around us. What could we take? What kind of inspiration could we take? So I think that's something that really kind of hits my heart. You said it so well. And especially when you talked about the humility of special forces before, obviously, not all recipients are special forces. But of the ones I've had the privilege to interview, I think every one of them, if not just about every one of them, all said, I don't know why I got this. It should have been. Yeah. Fill in the blank. Their humility in the face of all of it is incredible. Have you ever had a chance to meet Kyle Carpenter? Yes. We had him in this very studio. Okay. I mean, what an amazing man. I was able to I've been able to cow was at our groundbreaking ceremony in March of this year, Kawasaki, our preview center in Arlington, Texas, a couple of months ago.

"I was used to hard work and grinding it out. So but having that opportunity to do that was great and I was able to do that for almost three years. Did the security consulting for about three years? And then it led me to the job that I'm at now, the national Medal of Honor museum foundation. What an honor and a privilege to be able to work there, you know? Tell me more about that. How did you get connected with them? And I know it's still in process and hopefully we'll be opening soon, I believe in the Dallas area, right? Yeah, it's actually an Arlington Texas. It's right where the Texas Rangers baseball team plays right where AT&T Stadium where the Dallas Cowboys play. So it's in a great area. Scheduled to open in November of 2024. We just had our groundbreaking in March. This year had a great groundbreaking, had a lot of folks there in attendance, and there's a lot of folks excited about the project. I could be happier than I'm part of it. So I'd heard about I live in north Texas, I live up in Denton county and I'd heard about this project and I heard the CEO of the national Medal of Honor museum foundation was a former navy seal. Slash former NASA astronaut. How's that for a background, right? I had a colleague that said, hey, you should go meet him. I mean, he's right in your backyard. I mean, you live in Texas, and they're building this museum in Texas. You have museum experience. He's a former navy seal, you're a former green beret. You guys should have a conversation. And so I was lucky enough to get some time set up with Chris Cassidy. Who's the CEO? And I met with him for about 30 minutes. And I had a black notebook with me from lessons learned from my museum of the Bible because I was there during construction. I was there, obviously, during the grand opening and the next couple of years. So I got to see a lot of good things and bad things and lessons learned and things like that. So I was able to meet with Chris and I just started sharing some stories. And I swear to you, I was like, hey man, I just want to help in some capacity.

"But what was the key to being successful at that? Being creative, flexible. I think for us, we stayed really aggressive, you know, like I mentioned earlier, the surprise speed, violence of action, overwhelming firepower, I mean, that's just the way that's the way that we roll that rotation. And I think that kept us alive. I mean, we didn't hesitate, because if you really think about it, it's like, oh man, it's so dangerous. If we're driving on route Irish or Ralph gold or route Pluto, we're going to hit an IED and people are going to lose lens or they're going to lose their lives. I mean, you really, if you let all of those things take over your mind, you'll be so afraid and scared. You won't want to leave the base. You won't want to do anything. So I think that we did a great job of staying very aggressive and hungry. We were there for a mission and we all believed in the mission. And I think that's what that's why I kept us alive. Now you retired and you said 2018? No, January of 2017. 2017. Yeah. We've talked with some folks who handled that transition real well. Others struggled going back to the civilian life. What was it like for you? Well, I would say that it's not an easy transition because you hear for prisoners and things like that. The institutionalized, you know, I've been in the army for 26 and a half years and I guess to a certain degree I was. I felt institutionalized.

"And that was a very violent, deadly place as well. But the meeting place was going to be right outside Sadr City and this clothing store. And our female was going to be inside, which she really wasn't. But he thought she was going to be inside and he was going to go there and meet her in the clothing store, and they were going to have this great first meeting and then probably go back and do whatever. So we had this whole thing set up. We had we had units in place. We had Iraqis. We had Iraqi scalp platoon guys that was working with us. Iraqi army guys. We have people in the store. We have people outside the store. We had we had a QRF close by that could respond. I was in a civilian SUV type vehicle that was driving around the area. And we thought it was going to be a little bit easier. He was going to kind of walk into the store and we were going to deal with this guy. It actually didn't go that way. He was there. He was on the phone, talking to her, and we knew that they were talking, but he didn't want to go inside the store. So it took us a while to figure out where he was and what he was doing because he was right outside the people that we had set up, watching the clothing store. He was right outside their field of view. So they couldn't really see him, but eventually we were able to figure out that is him. That's where he's at. So our vehicle that I was in, we pulled up, I was able to get out of the vehicle, I was able to launch QRF, and he heard the humvees coming, and he was looking at the humvees approaching, and he didn't see me because I was coming from a different angle, so I was able to, I was able to detain him and flex cut them and it really, it was one of the missions that really started our rotation off to a great start because the amount of intelligence that he had was unbelievable. So it really set up a lot of things for us. And we didn't really anticipate this was a guy that sometimes when you do these type of missions and targets, you kind of have a feeling like discuss is going to be armed and we're probably going to have to kill this guy. That's what we thought that was going to happen with this guy like, hey, he's going to be armed. He's going to pull a pistol or a rifle or whatever.

"We got to a certain point though, once we resupplied, we were pushing the bad guys, the insurgents back. We ended up pushing them back to abolition if a mosque, really, there was nowhere else for them to go because right behind Abu nifa was a Tiger's river. So they basically melted back into Abu hanifa and that's where we kind of ended up that Iraqi army, the 101st, and our detachment. We were all pointed at Abu hanifa and fortunately, I think for all parties involved, they had had enough because anything to do with the mosque was very, very sensitive. So luckily they melted back into the mosque and they didn't shoot. We didn't shoot. And it basically ended the engagement. We reached out to the 101st and said, hey, it looks like these guys are done fighting. So we're going to return to base. Let us know if you need anything. On our way back to Apache, we noticed the Iraqi police had been hit really hard. By the insurgents anatomy, because they hated the Iraqi police. They viewed the Iraqi police as Shia. And the folks anatomy and were Sunni. So the more Iraqi police that they could kill the better, but they had killed some Iraqi police, there were some vehicles and equipment that was left anatomy. So we were able to strategically maneuver our vehicles. And secure some of the Iraqi police vehicles and equipment and take it back. A couple of us jumped out of our vehicles and jumped into their vehicles to drive them back just so we didn't want those vehicles to get into the hands of the insurgents. And I think after that, we went back out one more time because we had heard that it was picking up a little bit, but it was kind of a minor, a minor skirmish, nothing, nothing major, but yeah, 17 April 2006, I call it my alive day because a couple inches here and there at any at any given moment during that firefight that could have went a different way. So I definitely feel blessed to still be here for sure. Wow, a matter of inches so many different times. Yeah. Obviously, your unit performed extraordinarily well that day. We've talked about the zero margin for error. But your detachment was also given a very special award in 2006 as the best attachment in the tenth special forces group and the accompanying write up mentions a few different operations that she's successfully undertook. I just want to mention a couple, mainly one called operation Thor's hammer, which in addition to excellent logistics, it's just very creative. It involves a pretty lengthy description against a specific target where you use an Iraqi woman to kind of lure him into a place where you could get him explain how that worked.

"They threw some curveballs our way as well, because they had had the roads blocked off. So they basically could channel us down these side streets and we were all trying to stay online, but at certain points they had the roads blocked off. So they know that we would have to stop. And that was basically a kill zone for them because it's an urban environment. So they were having, they had interlocking sectors of fire on these intersections where they had the roads blocked. So they know that we couldn't just flow through because our vehicles would get all hung up and messed up, so we had to stop and we had to clear these obstacles and I believe that's what the citation is mentioning as far as being under fire and things like that. I had to clear these obstacles so the vehicles could continue, but they just had these interlocking sectors of fire where the Gunners really couldn't support my movement from the vehicle that nice safe vehicle so I had to expose myself to clear those obstacles so the vehicles could continue and then once I could get the vehicles through, then I knew that we could have some firepower on the enemy. One more question before we hit our next break here, Daryl. It's one thing, of course, to think through this stuff. And I guess as you think through it, you're thinking of your whole team as you do this. Some people, when they're in combat, they're following orders and they're thinking about what they're going to do, you got to think about all the guys that you're responsible for. Talk about that in that moment. You know, because we had such a light package to vehicles, 6 green berets and one interpreter, you know, we really didn't have any margin for error. You know, if we have one casualty, we're basically, you know, we're basically out of the fight, if it's a catastrophic, I mean, if it's a serious casualty, we're basically out of the fight because during this engagement, the weather was so bad, we didn't have any air support. And I think that's what made this engagement. What it was, because I think the Iraqis knew that we didn't have any air support because the military typically doesn't fight fair ever. They always have an advantage. We got drones and helicopters and jets and all that stuff. But they knew that this was more of kind of a street fight that we didn't have any air support.

"Harassment, like kind of hit and run because they didn't want to go toe to toe with the U.S. Army. Especially special forces guys, they just, it just wasn't something they did. It kind of harassing fire. And then maybe to try to bait you in, and then they would run off and kind of melt into the population. So when we got to antar square, the fire volume was a lot higher than we normally dealt with. But I linked up with the Iraqi army commander and got a situation report from him. And I could tell it was a little bit more, it was a lot more serious, actually. The insurgents were actually maneuvering on the Iraqi army and the U.S. Army, our brothers from the 101st, which is not very common. I mean, to actually maneuver towards them like, hey, we're here to fight. Let's do this. That's what was happening. So we got a situation report from the Iraqi army commander and I gave him some the best advice I could give him as far as what we were getting ready to do and how this thing should actually play out. We did somewhat of a flanking maneuver because I wanted to link up with the Americans as well. Before we really got engaged, I wanted to know where everyone was at. So linked up with the 101st got this basically the same situation report from them that, hey, they've been fighting at this time, like 5 hours. The enemy had been maneuvering on them as well. They were somewhat pinned down and they were they were kind of low on ammo. And they'd been requesting help. And no help had it arrived. So we got there. We decided to, once we linked up with them, we decided to do like a flanking maneuver, by the way, the streets are kind of laid out. We were able to drive down this one Main Street, and then there was all these side streets, so that's where a lot of the enemy were firing was from those side streets. So I decided to take my two vehicles into work that street and go down those side streets and fire down those side streets to kind of loosen things up and maybe gain some momentum. So the first couple side streets that we went to, we actually had insurgents that maneuvered on us. In a vehicle and they got probably within 50 to 75 yards of us, they got out with our RPGs and AKs. And my 50 Cal gunner who was very surgical, Brian rainwater. Was a former 50 Cal gunner before.

"And that's exactly where we found ourselves and probably one of the most dangerous, deadliest places in Iraq in 2006. So the mission that we had was primarily intelligence collection. But where Apache was set up where we were stationed, we worked alongside of the 101st airborne, and they were there training and fighting with the Iraqi army. So they had responsibility for Adam and we had had established early on that if they ever needed help, we would come help them. Then of course, if we needed something, they would come help us as well. So that's where we found ourselves on 17 April, 2006, we woke up that day, it was an administrative day for us, which sounds odd in combat, but you have to do administrative things. We were going to get a turret upgrade. We were going to get the heavy glass for our humvees. So we could have extra protection for our gunners from small arms fire IEDs, things like that. So that day we were going to go back to Baghdad international airport. We were going to get our turd upgrades and resupply things like that. But that morning, when we woke up, all hell had broken loose and Adam, I mean, it was right across from where we stayed. So we contacted our 101st brothers and asked them if they needed anything because we could tell they were in a pretty nice firefight. You hear the small arms fire explosions. We reached out. They said they didn't need anything. So it was like, okay, fine. So we left, we went to the green zone. We checked in with our company headquarters. Right when we left, our company headquarters. We were getting ready to go to the Baghdad international airport. My team leader had called Chris denham. And said, hey, the 101st guys are trying to get a hold of you guys. He called me on an embassy cell phone that we all had. But he said, hey, you know, something's changed. They need some help. They need support. So it's a troops in contact. We'd work with those guys before, primarily at night. So I told Chris that we would, we would return. We'd go back to Adam and we were going to link up with those folks at antar square, which was a known area, didn't have a lot of details about what was going on. Out of me it was a very dangerous deadly place. We all were aware of that. So we were kind of going into this situation somewhat blind. So we got in our vehicles. We're in two gun trucks. Which isn't very common during this time period in Iraq and O 6 because most of the convoys are for vehicles, 6 vehicles, 8. Two vehicles is a very small convoy. We had 6 green berets, myself included, and we had our interpreter with us. So we had 7 people two vehicles, very small package. But we did carry a big punch. We had a lot of ammo. We were very aggressive. So we rolled back, we linked up at antar square. It was actually the Iraqi army as we pulled up. We're under fire. RPG PKM machine guns, AK-47s. So the first thing I needed to do was establish what was going on. During this time period, a lot of the engagements that we saw was a lot of

"But we were trying to keep those Iraqi divisions engaged, the plan was to go in from turkey. Turkey refused for us to use their airspace or to use their land at the last minute. So it really threw a wrench into our plans. So what they decided to do and keep in mind, all of our vehicles and gear was in turkey. But at the last minute they decided, hey, we can infill these guys with MC one 30s. Airplanes. And we were staged in Romania before February of O three, the invasion was March. So they were going to fly us in from Romania, and then we just couldn't get in that way either. There was a lot of weather things. So they finally decided they moved us down to Jordan, and then we flew in. We had 6 MC one 30s. We flew in, I think it was the 20 something of March 2003, but we had to fly in the western part in the northern part of Iraq. Early into the air war, it had all of the targets hadn't been softened yet by air. So we ran into a lot of triple-A anti aircraft artillery, and we really got rocked that whole flight. It was like a 600 mile flight, several hours. Napa the earth, we were flying bellies on the desert floor. Anywhere from 200 feet to 500 feet, which is just crazy low. But we were trying to take as much reaction time away from the Iraqis as we possibly could, but it was definitely a crazy flight. It'll be a flight that I never never will be able to forget. A lot of turbulence, a lot of folks that were sick and just we were getting lit up. The whole time, for the most part. Just one more topic here before we reach our first break, Daryl, and that is once you got to Iraq, and you hooked up with the Peshmerga in the northern part of the country.

"We were all of a sudden going from primarily a peacetime army. I mean, we did have some stuff going on in the Balkans, but we knew that we were now a nation at war, and we were going to be the tip of that spear. And that's what happened. Yeah, I'm glad you mentioned that because I was going to say that you weren't completely unfamiliar with being in a war zone as it related to the Balkans and Kosovo. So this would have been, I believe, after your special forces training, but before a ranger school. So what kind of assignments were you given in the Balkans? I did a lot of different things in the Balkans. You know, when I was in studio, Germany. So we would deploy down a San Vito, Italy. That was an air base, and that's where we staged out of because there was a lot of back and forth when president Clinton was in office and we were going to do the air war. We were not going to do the air war. We went back and forth so every time those decisions were being made, we were being forward deployed down to San Vito, Italy. Once the air war actually did occur and we actually had planes dropping bombs into Serbia. We were doing combat search and rescue. So if any of the planes got shot down, which too did to planes got shot down, it just so happened to be we weren't on we weren't on at that time. We were rotating with our sister company. We were doing three days on three days off. We were we'd start out San Vito, Italy, we'd go to twos low, which is in Bosnia. We'd be we'd be upsell for three days. So if anything happened, we would respond to that. But both times, both planes got shot down. It was our sister company that actually went in and got the pilots out with a contingent of our air force special ops brothers. And crew. You were also tracking down suspected war criminals, correct? Yes, we did that as well. Pith wicks, personnel indicted for war crimes. And Sarajevo, which in Bosnia, we did some intelligence collection for that. And we were gathering information very sensitive operation that we were doing. Also, I was there to encounter sniper security, our unit was tasked to do that when president Clinton, one of the main summits that happened in Bosnia during his administration, we worked with the Secret Service. Their counter assault counter assault team counter sniper team counter surveillance team, but my team, we were doing counter sniper right in downtown Sarajevo, right in sniper alley, that was that was a real privilege to be able to do that with the Secret Service. So moving forward now, after 9 11, as far as I can tell, you are not deployed early on to Afghanistan, but you did prepare for the invasion of Iraq.

"You're trying to, you're trying your best to be a leader and get people to do things. When they're hungry and they're tired and they don't want to do anything. So it's a great leadership school. It's probably one of the best leadership schools that we have in the military and I was happy that I went, even though my journey was a little off, you know, from being a little bit older. Now, when you say you got a little bit of extra attention, is that a good thing or a bad thing? You know, I think it kind of went both ways. There were some ranger instructors that had a lot of respect for special forces, guys. So like, you know, for like land navigation, that's something that special forces guys really excel at. We do a lot of land navigation in the course. So the ranger instructors is like, make sure that I was point man or I was doing a lot of land navigation for the students going through my fellow students, and then there were some other cases where maybe the ranger instructor is graded a little bit harder because I was a staff sergeant. So I was 30 years old. I've been through the special forces qualification course. So the expectations were a little bit higher, like we're not going to grade you the same as a PFC from ranger regiment. So I kind of got it both ways. Let's back up a little bit too special forces training and qualifying. Why did you pursue that? And what was that qualification like? Yeah, so I spent probably I think I was in the military, 6 or 7 years, wasn't exposed to, you know, it was a light infantry guy was 11 bravo, started out at four door, California. Went to fort Lewis, Washington, and that's the home of second ranger battalion and first special forces group. Didn't really see the special forces guys during my time at fort Lewis, but I did get exposed a little bit to ranger regiment. And notice that, hey, these guys are on a whole different level than regular army infantry guys. So they had my respect. And then I moved to fort Campbell PCS to fort Campbell, Kentucky. And I started seeing a lot of fist special forces group out on the ranges, training, and I noticed that they weren't training quite like we were.

He received four bronze stars, including a bronze star with valor for his combat service, among many other awards. He is now chief of business operations for the national Medal of Honor museum foundation. And Daryl, thanks so much for being with us. Thanks for having me. It's a privilege and honor to be here. Thank you. Where were you born and raised? Born and raised in Huntington West Virginia. So not too far from here. No, not too far from here, a small town Huntington, a lot of people don't really know where that's at. And I have to say, hey, it's where the movie we are Marshall was made. You know, with Matthew McConaughey, that's how people really kind of relate to that. But yeah, small town, so was there a history of military service in your family? Yeah, both sides of my grandfather's and uncles and things like that. It served. When did you join the army and why did you choose the army? Well, I humbly say it wasn't my first choice. I was looking to join the Marine Corps. No one in my family had joined the marines. But there were some administrative snafus after that happened. And it decided to join the army. I had somebody that had joined and it seemed like it was a great deal. And for a poor kid from Huntington West Virginia, it seemed like it seemed like a good way out, so I decided to join the army. And when did you join the army? 1990. I actually went and started basic training July of 1990. Wow. So just a couple of weeks later, Saddam Hussein invades Kuwait, and there's this big build up from what I read. I don't believe you were over there, but what did that news and the whole shift in the military? What was that like at that time? Yeah, we got the news. I was down in fort benning, Georgia. Got the news while I was down in basic training and it definitely elevated the stress. Everything was definitely was heightened like, hey, you guys really need to pay attention, especially the nuclear biological chemical, all of that training that we went through. And being a young kid, 18 years old, that's a pretty scary stuff when you're looking at the effects of what chemical weapons does to you, especially with Saddam, who had already used it on his own people.

Grew up in Jacksonville, went off to VMI, got the got the snot kicked out of me for four years, was now that way the most enjoyable college experience, but kind of like a marathon, your proud, you did it. I don't know if I'd do it again. And I went off to ranger school and into special forces, but interestingly, I had this kind of interesting experience that a lot of folks don't realize both the navy seals and army green berets have reserve units, which I migrated to is recalled after 9 11 into one of those. But it meant when I was done with that first tour, I had to have a day job and I found myself actually in the policy world under Secretary of Defense rumsfeld in The Pentagon as a civilian. And had this kind of really interesting back and forth of there I was in The Pentagon and eventually in the Bush White House as vice president Cheney's counter terrorism adviser, but in between, I would mobilize and deploy, so it was there I was in The White House situation room and then I'd have to be on the idiots in Washington that actually had to go do the strategy. I just helped write recommended, right? So it was my butt on the line, but then the really interesting part, which you can appreciate is taking the uniform back off coming back into the situation room and saying, hey boss, respectfully, the generals are full

"Then we thought we were done but then it turns out we were getting other requests from navy. Seals army rangers green berets friends of ours. Who said hey. My interpreter is in a really bad way. What do you think. Hey my former partner. Afghan special forces and his family can't get to the airfield. What should we do and we decided. Okay we're going to honor the promise. We're going to stay in this thing. We're gonna open up a signal chat room. We're going to go bigger. And we're going to work together using what we had used within his arm but now we were going to collaborate in each other's eyes and ears in that signal room and then the individual shepherds could talk to their flocks as we call them in that time of duress and be their eyes and ears because we knew who they were we knew where they were and they trusted us and that was the value proposition that we could present to the soldiers and marines on the other side of the perimeter who looked out at thirty thousand people. Where do you even start right. But we could move them close in a disciplined way with their families defar recognition signals near recognition signals. Then moved them through in a disciplined way and that was really the value proposition. That taskforce pineapple and so many of these other veterans groups brought. It wasn't getting on the ground and moving them. It was leveraging the trust and relationships to help them move and present themselves. they're the ones that really took the risk and endured the dangers right. There you heard about how the pineapple express was born. But how did you get that name. Yeah the whole name. Pineapple express came from basically one one commando who used the term pineapple.
