"It was immediately clear. That our artillery hadn't done the damage everyone thought. Just as I suspected, the four of us stay close. Lined up, left to right. All advancing at the same time. I was further left. The man in front of me was hit. Did the man in front of him? But you can't stop. He mustn't stop. That's what they tell you. With that has you surrounded? Keep moving. At all costs. Billy is leading this whole thing from the front. And after a few of our fall. We're all right behind him. He's got his pistol in his right hand. And he waves us forward. He says, if I'm the one at Monte one red, with those balls, I'm keeping my money. In the middle of all this carnage. The cheek that the balls, but you know that was that was pure Billy. We're getting close to the German barbed wire, protecting their first trench. And it's completely intact. That's a problem with British artillery, shrapnel based. Why do a job on the wire? They watch two more men die in front of me. Just had to step over them. All that's going through your head is. You mustn't stop. Then we all stopped. It happened right in front of us. Billy just given Simon's ball whacked was the German trench. And right as he approaches the barbed wire, he pulls a mills bomb. He tugs it off his belt. Pulls a pin. And justice is about to chuck it into the German trench. He crumbles. When someone gets shot, you always imagine that the body.

"We reach our objective of montauban ridge. I would like to present the first to Richard Jones. Tojo was joined. And now it's starting to really sink in what's at stake here. A chance to go back to playing on the village green. No more rats. No more stink. No more watching your friends die. So it's given Jones one ball. And then he starts walking our way. Everyone knew where that second ball was going. I'm thinking I'm definitely getting the other ball. And I present the second ball to Simon stockwell. I will never forget the look of pride on his face. I once saw this kid get the ball deep in his own half. Dribble. The entire woolwich arsenal used team and scored the winner in an FA youth Cup final. He didn't look half as proud as he did in that moment. Like he forgot we were on our way to charge through a hail of German machine gun fire. He wasn't able to forget that long. Gentlemen at O 7 day. When the gun stopped, we go. And whistle goes. And I just remember looking right at si. He put that right foot through the ball. Like we've seen him do so many times before. And over the top we went. When you first go over. There's a strange realization that the sheer act of leaving the trench isn't actually. What's going to kill you? The ground isn't made of molten lava. It's what can happen to you. Once you're over. That's going to do it. We're only a few steps in. And one of those German machine guns just puckers up and starts spitting. It was immediately clear. That our artillery hadn't done the damage everyone thought. Just as I suspected, the four of us stay close. Lined up, left to right. All advancing at the same time..

"Will charge across this mile of land, take the first trench, then the second, then the third. They had writing on them as well, each of these football showing big block letters that raise you to read even if you weren't right next to him. Once said, the great European Cup final a series versus the Bavarians kick off at zero. And the other one said in these big block letters no referee. That was a philosophy I could get behind. When you encounter the enemy, what is left of them act swiftly, decisively, and without hesitation. For remember, it is they who wanted this fight, and we have been afforded the opportunity to stop the bleeding of an entire generation. And while he's doing this in the spelling out omission, he starts walking over to one of the welshmen. Jones or Davies I don't know, he was Welsh, so it was one or the other. I'd hear two footballs, and I would like a pair of very special soldiers to kick off this chart. One that will alter the course of human history, and I will offer a reward of £20 to whomever has them when we reach our objective of montauban ridge. I would like to present the first to Richard Jones. Tojo was joined. And now it's starting to really sink in what's at stake here. A chance to go back to playing on the village green. No more rats.

"Simon went. He had a football at his feet. So I was so shit with girls. If you're 16 or 17, you can't check anyone up with a football at your feet. We all love playing, but you have to draw the line somewhere. I swear, Simon's football saw more of London than any cab driver has. And no, it probably didn't help him with girls. But it is why when Simon played. He lucky at The Bourne string. When he ran at full pace, really, the ball looked like an appendage, a phantom limb. You couldn't get it off of him. By the time we were about 8 years old, I learned it was better just to back off and try and make him pass. Otherwise it just embarrass you. The football field. That's where soy silence the noise of the outside world. Where he sought refuge. The only place he felt comfortable. So, a certified ironic. That's where it happened to him. He got white feathered. What's that mean? Means you go to France. Or you never get laid again. In those early days of the war. A group of women went around England in search of men who looked old enough to be in uniform. If you weren't wearing one. They would march right up to you. Pin a white feather on you. A sign of cowardice. The ultimate insult, the kiss of death. Goes back to cockfighting actually. Crossbreeds were considered inferior, and how do you tell a crossbreed? White feather. Those are the smart answers probably didn't know that, did they? I'd also tear into your verbally while pinning you..

"Men in blazers. Courage. Before the four of us left for France, we didn't measure time in hours and minutes. It was winds and losses. Goals four and against. Saw the mad. Losing a football match felt like a Greek tragedy. When we lost, we couldn't sleep at night. We played any way we could get a game. 15 a side in the park to V two in the street. We used our captives goalposts, play all day and into the night till the lamps went out in the city center. And then the lamps went out all over Europe. But we still played in France. Games were always on when we were back from the line. It's tough to kick a football in a trench. Even more difficult in no man's land. With Germans firing machine guns at you. We found that out, the hard way. And we all signed up together, August 1914. First month of the war Britain's war secretary lord horatio kitchener said he wanted a 100,000 men and his poster was everywhere. This massive image of kitchen looking right at you. His eyes stirring into your soul. His finger thrust itself forward and practically poked you in the chest. And he had this amazing great big mustache. At that point, the four of us basically had pencil shavings on their upper lip. And we wouldn't put razor to cheek before it wouldn't grow back. Kitchens though. I feel like a symbol for all of Britain, you know? The honor of England, who we are as a people..

Ukraine Has Repelled Russia's Attempt to Cross Donbas River

"There is a story in the telegraph of Great Britain today. An entire battalion and again, I am not, I'm a civilian civilian, meaning I don't even know how to spell civilian, much less anything going on in the army. And the Russian army. But I know that when a battalion gets wiped out, trying to cross a river, that's not good for morale. So they tried to cross the river. It's in the telegraph, I tweeted it out. You should be following me on Twitter. And they got pushed back 20 clicks from 30 clicks, which in my mind I quickly estimate to be about 18 miles because the ten K is 6.2 miles and so 30 clicks must be about 18.6 miles. So Ukraine's are pushing back the Russians all over the place. They're in a static front in the Donbass, which is, you know, I couldn't draw the Donbass on a map. I know where Ukraine and Russia is, but it's part of Ukraine. And I couldn't get it right now where it is roughly. It doesn't get to Odessa. And only a part not a God, this is from the financial time. Military briefing can Ukraine push the Russian army from the country. Even that being written is something that's extraordinary.

Former Green Beret Rep. Michael Waltz on the Ukraine Crisis

"Talk to us about the last 5 weeks because the Ukrainians, they stood up to the plate and their use of irregular tactics. With one anti tank missile on the back of every rifleman, talked us about the performance on both sides as well. One, the Ukrainians have been trained by green berets and that's what we specialize in around the world is embedding with militias, tribes, allied military, and making them better. I think you're seeing 8 years of that training payoff since 2014 when they were invaded the first time. And then secondly, thanks to president Trump who began sending in the lethal aid in the first place after Obama through literally through blankets and MREs at the process. Yes. That said, they should have had a lot more than they had. The other thing we had the commander of NATO and general milley admit during these hearings is Ukrainians would have been in a far better place if they had stingers before the invasion before. Not a week after the invasion. Right. And a sticking point that I pressed them on also is why aren't we training them? Why aren't we training battalions, companies, platoons, still. So we did that great training in the last 8 years, but we cut it off as soon as the invasion started. Why aren't we training them in Poland and Romania? In safe places on NATO terrace. That's right. Well, we can deploy with ease. That's right. Bring them over there and keep the training. So the NATO commander said, well, we're not doing that congressman as a matter of policy. So I went to the Secretary of Defense and said, why aren't we doing it? He said, oh yeah, we are, but we can't get any confirmation

Why Is the U.S. Comfortable Associating With Ukrainian Nazis?

"If America had a KKK battalion within our own military. I want you to imagine if we were supporting groups that were Nazis. Well, we are. Actually. It's amazing. It's just shocking to me how the left wing regime media has spent years smearing all of us as Nazis, anyone who dares show up at school board meetings as Nazis and then they fund actual real-life Nazis in Ukraine. And this is not like a slur or an exaggeration, there's a video right here that we see in front of us where there is literally a guy wearing a Nazi symbol in full tattoos with fully automatic machine guns saying in Ukrainian like we're going to go kill the Russians. And so the argument then goes will Charlie, we have to back somebody because Vladimir Putin is evil. I agree. Vladimir Putin is evil. Well then under that logic, why didn't we back ISIS to go fight Bashar al-Assad? What if both sides could be really bad? Now, this is the backbone of some of the Ukrainian resistance in Mari Paul, which is the southeastern corner of Ukraine. The southeastern corner of Ukraine is right within this kind of Russian separatist area. It's where a lot of the fighting is happening. It's an area that Russia really, really wants. It's a port city, so a question that I think is necessary for us is why does the American regime or the people that run our government? Why are they all of a sudden so comfortable with associating with Nazis? Now I'm not calling zelensky Nazi. He's a grandchild of Holocaust survivors. Obviously not. Zelensky's Jewish. But zelensky is partnering in some capacity without right neo Nazis on the mainland of Ukraine. This is

A Ukrainian Town Deals Russia One of the War's Most Decisive Routs

"So I want to read a story here from The Wall Street Journal, Ukrainian town routes Russians. Starts actually on the first page of The Wall Street Journal here. This morning, which is hard not to admire the Ukrainian people who are fighting for their home against the Russian aggression. Ukrainian town deals Putin one of the most his most decisive routes. A Kalashnikov rifle swung over his shoulder, mikhailo sorico, spent this Tuesday driving through fields and forests picking up a dead Russian soldiers and taking them to a freezer railway car piled with Russian bodies. A rapid Russian advance into the strategic southern town of 35,000 people, a gateway to the Ukrainian nuclear power station in pathway to attack Odessa from the back would have showcased the Russian military's ability and severed Ukrainians key communication lines instead, the two day battle of details of which are now only starting to emerge, turned decisively against the Russians. Judging from the destroyed and abandoned armor, Ukrainian forces which comprised local volunteers and professional military eliminated most of the Russian battalion tactical group marked March 2 and three. Now, I'm going to continue to read the story here, find it. It's pretty awesome to see people rise up and defend their home. I have to say. The Ukrainian defenders performance against a much better armed enemy in an overwhelmingly Russian speaking region was successful. In part because of the widespread popular support for the Ukrainian cause, one reason the Russian invasion across the country has failed to achieve its principal goals so far. Ukraine on Wednesday said it was launching a counter offensive on several fronts, quote everyone is united against the common enemy. So the 32 year old mayor, a former real estate developer, turned wartime commander, who like other local officials moves around with a gun, we are defending our own land. This isn't going according to plan for the Russians, it

Jack Posobiec Shares the Latest on Ukraine

"Let me ask you just, you know, we haven't really done a lot of the play by play of what's happening in Ukraine on this program because it's changing so quickly and there's so much misinformation and disinformation. What does it look like right now? It looks like the eastern part of Ukraine has been captured by Russian forces. We've been hearing about the fall of Kyiv now for a couple of weeks. What is Putin's endgame here? There is a theory that there might be a peace deal brokered, maybe an east and west Ukraine basically created or Russia basically absorbs the eastern part of Ukraine. What do you think is a realistic off ramp here? Or are we going to see potentially a multi month or multiyear conflict in Ukraine? Well, look, you know, there's been a lot of talk about this. You know, as you stated that on the ground it isn't constantly changing situation look strategically speaking in terms of eastern Ukraine, Russia does now and Russian forces have occupied pretty much all of the strategic locations in eastern Ukraine. The city of her son, the areas around Donetsk and lugansk, obviously up north from Crimea. And then there is that port city of Mario poll where he had this ads off battalion and Ukrainian forces that are maintaining the city, but it has been completely encircled by Russian forces and some news that we're going to be breaking later today. Is that it looks like the Russian forces are actually trying to bisect the city, cut it in half by pushing through to create a corridor, which they claim they want to get civilians out, but I'm sure they're also going to be sending their own military forces in. Now when it comes to Kyiv, again, they're building around their encirclement of the city. If you go read World War II history, you read your read your Russian military battles, Russia's greatest and most glorious moment in combat that they referred to is the Battle of Berlin under Marshall zhukov and what did they do with that? It was 2.5 million men surrounded the city of Berlin 6000 tanks, the tanks were sent in first as battering rams to soften up the defenses to smash their way through and then the troops poured in. That's the exact type same type of strategy that you were seeing now being used or attempted to be set up around Kyiv. Now obviously on a much smaller scale and also they're trying to do this in a way. They don't want to completely destroy the city because again, they keep claiming that they're liberating the city, right? It's the sort of back and forth. So I think what you're really seeing though is they've got the on the ground stuff in the east when it comes to Kyiv. That's not necessarily a military objective for them, but what it is is a political objective. They want to see a point where they want to bring the regime to the point where not maybe not so much that it will completely collapse, but come to the point where they do have to come to a negotiation deal and negotiation deal with

So that was his that was his reason for a living was to be at sea. And he shipped out on various with various ships, and he really had an interest in learning about navigation. In any case, when he ran up against the Muslims in the eastern Mediterranean at that time, and they cut off the trade routes from Europe to the orient, he believed that there would be a trade route going in a westerly direction that the world was round, and so that was planted in his mind on a ship on one of the one of the ships he shipped out on out of out of Spain, the encountered a battalion of ships that attacked him because there were, they were at war with each other, the Flemish World War, and so he actually his boat went down, he ends up in Portugal, Portugal was the center of navigation of the world. That's where, you know, the most advanced maritime sciences existed. He learned a lot, and then he had this passion. He had a vision to pursue that he was going to find that trade route. He was a passionate Christian, so he also viewed the opportunity to take the message of Salvation to people in another part of the world that had never heard that good news.

"I mean I would love to build a strong stable democratic Afghanistan What kind of moron would no no let's have a chaotic I mean what kind of idiot says otherwise But that's not the question what I love and what I want The question is what's possible and what resources and capabilities and evidence we have that we can in fact do that and I think your point is correct that what would be the outcome if we were to send like you said the 82nd over there and marines over there as well and then naval forces over there as well What evidence do we have that this is going to lead to a beneficial outcome for the United States at this point And I think the evidence is candidly slim Look look with the forces we have in Europe right now even with a very minor increases we have I don't think we have the capability to stand up against 60 battalion tactical groups supported by fully integrated battlefield operating systems We did when I was over there in the Cold War we had two armored core They were designed to defeat a Russian attack on Western Europe We don't have that now People think that America can snap its fingers and make anything happen But the simple fact is we in many ways we've gutted our military and we've made essentially unserious institutions I don't know about our combat readiness but I will bet that every commander out there is making sure that his soldiers have had their trans awareness training Because that's what the commander checks Soldiers do what commanders check And combat readiness is not being checked So the fact that I'm not sure we have the capability in any kind of reasonable time frame to actually intervene there even needs to be one of the issues I think it is but if we were that had to be a house to be a

Hugh, except on his map, there will be very precise denominations of every battalion combat team every core headquarters every missile in place meant every long range aircraft site every field hospital. So my successor will be looking at all of those. He'll be in constant contact, by the way, with our allies sharing that intelligence and information, different nations will have different slices of the pie. I always say about intelligence.

Afghanistan War: What Do Veterans Think About the Withdrawal?

"Americans served in the war. Nearly 2500 service members lost their lives. James Laporta is a former Marine infantry rifleman who first arrived in Afghanistan in 2000 and nine while on patrol. He would sometimes take videos of what was happening. This is a typical day in Afghanistan. It's about 110 degrees outside, but as soon as you walk into the fields, the fields are irrigated and So they're incredibly humid. It's almost like someone turns up the temperature, so when you start to walk to those fields, it's almost like someone's taking a breath away. Doing two tours of duty, James held many jobs, including infantry Squad leader and working in intelligence. Today. He is an investigative reporter for The Associated Press, James Thanks for joining me, Thanks for having me. So how long had you been in the Marine Corps before you got sent to Afghanistan? It was about three years. At that point. I come in in the summer of 2000 and six basically, 10 days after high school, I showed up to boot camp. Was being in the Marine Corps at that point, like what you thought it would be when you were in high school, dreaming about joining No. Hi. I was in jail ROTC in high school, which is junior reserve Officer Training Corps, which was a lot of fun. And you know when you wear uniforms and you march around, and I was sort of naive, you know, when I joined in 2000 and six, the focus was still on Iraq. Still looking for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, so Afghanistan was sort of an afterthought. When you first got deployed to Afghanistan, were you excited? Did did you want to go? I volunteered. Yeah, I was with the second Marine Regiment. And second Italian eighth Marines. The battalion that I became a part of they didn't have enough personnel to go to Afghanistan, so they came over to second Marine Regiment asking Marines. Does anybody want to jump on a deployment? And I had not been to Afghanistan. So I

then making a giant shell out of a resting each of those sixteen members of the marine corps out in front of the all of their their full company there so that everybody saw what was going on firefighters busy in riverside county right now trying to get a hold of a fire that is close to several homes near a rocky hills road this is just west of Paris it's just a quarter acre so get a handle on that well do you know the astronomer Alan Duffy right I follow his work actually he was flooded with calls from our reporters yesterday wanting to know about this large asteroid that had just whizzed past earth he could figure out why everyone was so alarmed his eyes I thought everyone was getting worried about something we already knew was coming he is the lead scientist at the royal institution of Australia and he told The Washington Post that there were forecasts that had already predicted that a couple of asteroids would be passing relatively close to earth this week many looks up the details of the asteroid in question it's asteroid twenty nineteen okay is its name and he says I was stunned this was a true shock yes the asteroid was not one that scientists have been tracking and it came from out of no where okay sorry craggy was a craggy rock that's what it was craggy rock roughly the size of a football field and moving quickly along a path that brought it to within about forty five thousand miles of earth well between us and the moon they call it uncomfortably close he says it snuck up on us pretty quickly people are only realizing our only sort of realizing what happened pretty much after it's already flung past us they've why did we know it was headed I don't know do you want to know I did not know I don't want to know you don't want it now well because what I want and now they tell us to forty eight hours ahead we have wh eyed looks like this is a we have no idea where on the earth it's going to impact but boy I tell you what for the next forty eight hours you better not eat any one pound bean and cheese burritos with extra red sauce and extra cheese or if you do maybe that's the way you go out that explosion would be quite quite colorful I don't think I don't think he the asteroid was discovered earlier this week by separate astronomy teams in Brazil and the United States and then information about the size in the path was announced just hours before it came through and what what one of these astronomers said was listen this shook me out of my complacency oh god it's probably the largest asteroid passed this close to earth and quite a number of years now they said actually part of the issue that they didn't see it was that that this was a size yeah is that it's nowhere as big as the ones capable of causing an event like the extinction of dinosaurs well that's comforting more than ninety percent of those asteroids which are about a kilometer or larger have already been identified by NASA and other organizations like around the world this is nothing this size is easy to detect your really relying on reflected sunlight or even at closest approach it was barely visible with a pair of binoculars well I second hold on second if if if you can see it with a pair of binoculars this the this is a sign they say of how much still remains unknown about space and a sobering reminder of the very real threat asteroids can pose this is John Amer said it should worry us all quite frankly it's not a Hollywood movie it's a clear and present danger which is a wholly while a that is all it is a Hollywood movie Sir clear and present danger I to go back to what we saw was it just last weekend there that all of the shows were dedicated to Apollo eleven yes then the constant refrain from people on those shows and looking back at what we did fifty years ago was there were ten thousand things that had to go almost perfectly for all of that to happen the way that it did ten thousand there were a few things that went wrong or that were you know confusing or whatever but there were ten thousand things that had to go right all of that to work out the way it did and if you talk about tracking an asteroid this that's a hundred yards across or whatever it is if you did find that it was headed for a collision course with the earth the number of things would have to go right for us to be able to prevent that from happening if we even have the technology capable of doing it I don't know if we do or not and would we be able to deploy it in the now seventy two hours that we had warning before this thing came barreling into earth I don't think so I think we're doomed I don't think we can get it together to act that quickly and accurately can't even agree on main main main ETS white why would we be able to agree on a technology to take down a rogue asteroid watch is coming up next to it just what four days until the debate and people are gonna be Makin names for themselves in these

That was gay male of independence, not gum hearing aids away, you know, to help with the hearing on I have two doors away, is quite, you know, that's in Sioux, lose the hito ability to have more children. I'm actually very, very happy. And so is my wife. So we're okay there buys the physical health go better my mental health so care must have day as the house, my brain repair itself, 'cause it's absolutely fantastic thing, the brain on the I would remember the, the. Men that we lost on the toll. We lost three guys in my team, a few months prior so have Mayans to them. The remember on go through, you know, survival given us, y you know, 'cause we're in Las was eighteen years old. You know, life we just stall in a feeling on the. I began to struggle. To the point where I was diagnosed with something cool post traumatic stress disorder on the I go through all these solve at odds spend days arguing with myself about what's right? And what's wrong? I would strive if I couldn't time I shoo laser certain way outbreak, how in c is, I would I would say the Lawrence, my own harmless life. Someone wasn't using the cycle path that would send me over the edge and just wasn't dealing with things in a healthy way to, to the point where one day, I just woke up with this clarity. And the answer was to not be here anymore. And I stood in the kitchen, life was looking at me, like I was fool, and I explained what was about to do when she called nine nine and I was placed in a mental health unit. So when you went into also what sort of treatment, did you receive or was it was, it was a very difficult time and it's probably Feddie hazy. But what's the sort of thing that the research for member, as, as helping I remember, extremely clear going in, because I wasn't on any medication at the time, but it was it was a tough I felt sorry for the NHL because they just didn't know what to do with me. I must have changed mental health units three times that week two different warms. And they will think they were all scared to take ownership of a serving soldier, a veterans different a serving soldiers. Don't wanna still, you know, owned by someone. If you like you know owned by the crown so they were very. You know, a law of them wanted to send me the, the military mental health units down south, but no, they didn't have means of transport and stuff run out. So it was quite difficult for them when they get out so you fund suspect job while I was there, but it was, you know. What I was in there. I did feel a little bit. Like I was you feel little bit like you being punished, you know, 'cause you know allowed to go out you be washed taking your medication. And, and then if the medications don't work is all very trial and error, but while he's trial and error, you can't go out, you can't be with your family, and it took me about full months ago of the trial in Iran. And wilder my own rule went went in hours. I said to myself, my wife mature won't see me when I'm in here. So I was I was punishing myself in a way as well. But that's something I still feel for me was the right move for them to not come and see me it was tough. You know there was some timeless zone where I'd, I'd wet the bed sometimes because of the stuff eight that's my buddy because of all the way through my whole army career. And some of my teenage years, I've been very I feel that the human body could deal with. Like if you have a headache, you know, have a lie down on, we'll have some wards never been one to reach for the aspirin or anything like that. So when I was on the all these medications my body. The doctors told me, you know didn't go into shock but they weren't just weren't used to it. So Mike, what he was really extremely reactive to Eliezer medications that was something that Seitz to Tacoma, south down and things like that the, the mental health unit any self, I, I saw as an all inclusive, maybe the worst of inclusive ever, but it was a you out accommodation three meals a day on them. The one of the reasons I was able to get back, sir quite quick was, I was in there for about two months and a chop came in. And he said he was anyone he likes to try Gulf on put my hand up saying no. Does he get me off here under any use like? Yeah. Those we go down to local driving rain showers, often so went down and are still quite quite heavily blind. At this point. So I went down there in a hit bulls, laughed Ryan behind me and stuff run on under on the after a while. I just store starts to fall in love with the game. You feel like the Sean like I can play rookie anymore because the brain damage, I couldn't the box in our never I was never I was never a good stunned that goal for a good standard boxer. I enjoyed it, but it allow sports would take away from me. But goal is quite quite friendly. I'm that takes boxers in socializing exercise on the found the when I was hitting the bull all I was doing was concentrating on not stupid white Lil bowl on the on my outright time. I was finished the law of my problems at source Steidl, our call down, and it's a tool is still used today alone I said, I go and play nine holes, or I go to the driving range amiss as been a is harshly. For me and I don't say for everyone, but it's replaced medication for me the Gulf is now my therapy Ben than any feB session or medication. Is is obsolete? Saved me. Let's really interesting. What do you think it is about this helps you? I mean, the what do you think it works in particular, I, yeah, I was going. I'm glad you said imaging may in particular because I don't know four everyone. I understand that. But I, I really really I push as much dot com that when I go to schools and stuff, the spoil is a huge answer to everyone is just you just off. Find Walsh bowl. It is for you. You know, you know. You know. You have if you can set yourself mentally, you know, I don't care if this Chessel you know, Rubio goal for, you know, Matt bull all you do in his being in not moment. And that's what spoil allows you to do think it's a fun SaaS tick fantastic, you know, tool for mental health and a real healthy way of undoing and on the healthy Waldron, any spoil the Bessie you all the school before, you know, it, you know, only exercise in the mind being mentally betcha physically in some ways as well. But I guess is been absolutely fantastic for me. And, and it's something that I do work quite well with now with the Anna just way, oser went off very far away, now from getting Gulf prescribed to people that go in and say that not having a great time in the moment. So instead of it used to be okay, there's six Jim sessions, which sometimes you don't if you all suffering, you know. No, with depression or anxiety. Do you really wanna go to a weathers low took both people in a hundred mirrors in also? So we're trying to work in how we can factor a few Gulf sessions in where you can just go down through a driving range be on your own and just hit some balls at your own your own soul. You you'll you'll pace of life is something that I really enjoy doing in my community gone. Back to the military side, your last gang of see been Mitch military for a while. You must have some really interesting insights into this. I suppose my, my main question is, what sort of support is provided in general for people in the military. And what do you think they could do best anything because it must be really difficult set of circumstances for every for everyone. You know whether the appointment to health issues. Oh, no. It just. Yeah. So basically, what is at the moment and what, what else could they do? Sure. When I was coming out, it was, it was very it was very difficult when I was leaving the military coming out of the military, I was looked after by the medical side, you know, I was going to therapy sessions in places like Willisch and things like that. But my obviously than an infantry regiment, you know, six hundred men on it was still, I still, we're only just if you like now chairing turning a corner with mental health issues. It was I was still at the back end of it was. Wasn't. It was a to boost subject. Am very, you know, Monir what's wrong with your ghetto brigade? Pint bound you know gates Uganda cry in a shoot, don't get back to work on that. And I had a few I had a few issues with my battalion as well, which I don't want to go into too much because I don't want to. I don't want milder of Italian that I absolutely love. Nine of course, now I think is kind of in general, we can take the into stunned that may be it's, it's Venerea. What that might be more stigma just because of my writing thinking that you is you can't get into the forces, if you if you've meant to sort of having. Mental health issues will history of mental health issues, so soon, but if you'll then in the military, and you'll sort of struggling, you might not want to talk about it, whether it's getting with mental health issues. I know that they all opening up a lot of doors like if you haven't had medications for about five years, you know that you can go, you can try again. I know some people have been successful, but I'm but while you're in the military as quite halt on there is a I think we are in a better place now where, you know, Olov regiments are bit more open sue, you know, of what the guys go through because for example, you know in the nineties.

"I am your host battalion chief Rita Bigler with the Phoenix fire department. Thank you for joining us today. And we would like to take this opportunity to think Bonneville broadcasting for lowing us this window to discuss what is happening in public safety sharing emergency response safety tips and discussing issues that pertain directly to the health of our community and the firefighters who serve those communities today. I would like to welcome introduce our first time guest today, we have firefighter. Angela hers. Welcome. Thank you. So Angela you work for the Phoenix fire department. Give us a little bit of information about yourself, where do you work? How long have you been on the job? I work on engine thirty eight. I'm a firefighter engine thirty eight b shift and I just hit my eleven years yesterday. Congrats thank you in so engine thirty where is that station up. That's on Warner fiftieth street and our two key. And have you always worked on that part of town on the east side? Most my career have been our Takhi when I was on probation. I was in downtown. Phoenix for most of my stations. But then when I did my rescue time, I was at rescue forty-three, which is out of our Tuckey also, and once I left there, and I started roving they pretty much kept me out there. And it's it's pretty nice, it's close to home. And that helps out if there's any family -mergency is or anything like that. And so do you have kids? I do how many have two girls almost six and seven. Are you raising them to wanna be firefighters? You know, what I just want them to be good people? I don't really care what they do. But I just want them to be successful and be nice people. That's awesome. So Angela is on our show to talk about some of the things she does for fun and on the side. And so myself being a big part of recruitment. We just gave a written test on March fifth, and we're getting ready to hold first round interviews coming up here in the next few weeks. And so being an athlete in my opinion makes good firefighters. And that's something that you are is an athlete. So let's give a description did you play sports in college. I did I was a track and field athlete. I was recruited to be a heptathlete which is seven events. It's high jump hurdles long jump shot put javelin eight hundred and the two hundred. So did you do the compete in late in college? I did. And my best event was the shot put and so after I graduated college I continued to just throw the shot because my ultimate goal was to make field trials, and it took a little bit of time. But in two thousand four I made the Olympic trials for the shot put and after that, that's when I moved out here to Phoenix. And at that point, I was just trying to reassess establish who I was as a person and took some time away from talking field, and it was odd because for the first time in my life. I was without track and field, and I just turned thirty. And I wasn't sure what I was doing career wise anything like that. So little a little tricky. But I'm very thankful to be back. And so is that when you found the fire department coming moving to Phoenix, I did it was a personal trainer for four years. And I run into a bunch of firefighters at the gym. And they were telling me that Phoenix was getting ready to hire some more people. If there was you know, if I ever thought about that. It would be something great to do because I love to help people, and it was just another way to help people. So I was involved with Rosie's ladder. And that was the first introduction. I ever had to the fire department because I didn't know anything about the fire department in the culture and just what I need to do to become a firefighter. So I got my EMT, and I studied for the tests and. There. There's no turning back. Now is probably the best decision. I ever made. What sounds like it's a great decision because not only firefighter, but you also you get to continue doing what you love. And that's what we're here to talk about today is a funny enough is that I follow you on Facebook. And I learned that you have an extensive history in competing right now in the shot put, and it seems like you're winning gold medal after gold medal after gold medal. So what do you do? Now in this sport that you are so good at and you love. So I will say the first thing that got me back into competing was I kept hearing about police and fire games. And I you know, I had to ask them. So what is the police and fire games? And every year, they have the US police and fire games where it's for police officers and firefighters we come together, and there's a bunch of different sports, new go, and you compete against other people, and it's a US championship. And then every two year they have the world championships. So my first year compete. I'm back in track and field was twenty fifteen and the world police and fire games in Fairfax Virginia. So that kinda was the first time I came back and started training, and it brought me back to my true love, and it reminded me just how much I love track and field, and I've been hooked ever since. And so from the police and fire games, I decided to do track and field meets as masters so for a masters. It's ages thirty five and up, and they have every year there's a national competition. There's a bunch of different championship meets and every year. I've kind of added some new meets to my repertoire, I started just as thrower again. And then I started adding more events this year. It was crazy enough to do an indoor heptathlon which is different than the regular heptathlon that they do in college. In the Olympics and things like that. Because the indoor Taff is just for masters, although they did open it for open athletes this year, which is under thirty and that event included the pull volt so I had to learn how to vote so China. Learn pole vaulting at forty four years old is very interesting. I was very sore for a few days after the first couple of days of practice. But it helped because I came up with a big score. And I broke the American record by over three hundred points, which is a pretty good margin. And I signed up crazy enough to do my first decathlon in June. Some 'bout nine weeks out from that. So started voting again, but I have to figure out how to run a fifteen hundred for that. So you said decathlon I thought I thought the men do decathlon so they do, but they've now introduce it to the women because they're trying to make it be equal playing field have men and women to the same thing. So up to this point the men have done decathlon, and the women have only done the tough on when it comes to outdoors. But now they're trying there's really a big push for trying to get the decathlon for women, and maybe eventually even get getting rid of the heptathlon altogether. So they're really trying like I said to just kind of make it an even playing field across the board where were you compete in this decathlon? And so the decathlon is in Waukesha, Wisconsin, it's at Carroll college and gal like I said, I'm extremely excited because it's a new adventure for me again looking back longtime ago, if I ever thought at, you know, at my age and not saying that old by any means, but older athlete you have a little more aches and pains train has got to be different. You can't train like your college athletes still, and I'm still trying to learn how to train for the ten events, but it's going well so far in I just I enjoy it. How exciting so we'll come right back to some of those specifics of track and field. But speaking of the training that you do do you think that it transfers into being a firefighter? And makes you better firefighter. It does. But I still remember that being firefighter fit is different that any other sport, fitness. So I still try to. I still try to maintain my firefighter, fitness. And by that just doing skills course or anything that's going to help me be able to work on a fire as in your turn out. Yes. Part of that. Yes. And because it's just as anybody who's a firefighter knows. It's it's just it's a lot harder. When you have the gear on and you're breathing air. And now you're trying to do all the stuff that it's asked for you. So you could try to mimic all the cardio you want. But it's not going to be the same as getting in your turn outs breathing air and being able to move. So you really have to find a good balance of how you're training. Right. You're training for this event that you have in your personal life. But then you've got to be able to train to be good at your profession. Yes. And then even with that. Now, the hardest part is to try to figure out how to recover because it's so easy to want to train every day. But again, the older I get you get more aches and pains.
