So joining us as our first guest today is ST Command Chief Warrant Officer, Michigan Army National Guard. Chief warrant Officer five Gabriel Am bursitis. Chief foreign officer AM Bursitis is the command chief warrant officer for the Michigan National Guard. He graduated from Hackett Catholic High School in Kalamazoo and joined the U. S Army on June 17th 1982 Welcome to the show warrant officer. Mhm. Hello, Senator. How are you? Good. Good. So glad to have you on our show. We're talking about transitioning service members, and I know that, uh, that may be where you're at pretty soon soon to be soon to be looking forward to it. Well, how exciting So, um, you know, I wanted to talk a little bit about maybe your your background as you've been in the military for how many years it will be a 39.5. When I finally retired. Wow. 39 a half years that is that is the bulk of your life for sure. And so, um, can you tell us a little bit about your journey? It looks like maybe you were you served in active army. Or maybe you can just give us a little bit of history about where you've been. So I've been very fortunate. I've been in all three components of the United States Army. Was. I joined the army in 1982 as you mentioned earlier, and I went right on active duty to the 82nd airborne and then also to Korea, where I spent some time and second Infantry Division. After those four years, I decided to leave the service and then go to college. Use my college benefits and at that point else to join the Army Reserve who's been about seven years in the Army reserve, which is, uh Was very, very challenging and very, very good. Uh, after that, that unit was deactivated and we had no choice but to transition to the Army National Guard so and since then, since 1994 I've been in the Army National Guard. Okay, That's good to know. So, um, did you have to transition off of your active duty service, like Were you a Did you have to eat es then? Or how does that process work? Was it kind of just a smooth, seamless transition or Did you have to get out? Yes, I did have to get out. And, uh, it was smooth and seamless because the active army they do it all the time. So they're very well versed and how to transition soldiers back to civilian life, And they've got a one stop one station at Fort Bragg that you go through the stations and and you and you get all your briefings and you get all your paperwork squared away and then you depart. And it's very simple. You get in your car and you leave. And the next thing you know your your civilian. Did you? Did you feel like there were things that you wish you had known? Before or or had you not spent enough time into kind of missed being a civilian. What? When I got when I got in, I was 17. And when I e t s the first time I was 21, So it was really not much. I didn't really know much. I didn't have much all I knew that I was I was coming back to Michigan. And I wanted to go to college. So I went to I applied and was accepted at Western Michigan University. And I started there and in January of 1987, and, uh, so there really wasn't much to discuss. There wasn't much to think through because it was all pretty seamless and painless. You're 21 year old. You don't have many worries. Yeah, No, I can imagine. I know. Uh You know, when my husband and I e. T s at the military, you know you do you go through you go through all these stops of you know this is what you need to do for career counseling and Not necessarily getting you a job necessary. But, um, this is where you can decide where you can go when you're done for resume building And this is where you need to go for medical. And, um some of those other things, but You know, coming out at the time I had a family. So, um, I think that there were some things that were lacking for me coming out with the family. And I guess just thinking back to your time and knowing what you know. Now, do you think that Um, you would have been prepared for everything you needed to do as a civilian. If you had had a family back then. No, I would not because I would have. I would have been struggling to figure all that out. Um, uh, I probably missed those briefings as they more pertinent to me, so I got excused. Was excused from those briefings. But but in the end, I think that now now that I have a family and I'm retiring, I am thinking about those things. And, you know, from health care to, you know, Delt, dental, health, life insurance, all those things that that you need to think about now. Yeah, and And, you know, Speaking of that you're going to be retiring soon. Um, are you going to be looking for another job? Or is this like a real retirement Because I know that people retire, but do they really retire? That's always a great question, because you just don't know what the future will hold. Um, there have been some inquiries made on to see if I would be willing to come back and lend some of my expertise to certain areas of the department. You know, that would be more and want to consider those things. So I really don't know what that is. But we've we've prepared for this day because we knew it was coming. And as you know, my position is the state Command. Chief warrant Officer is the capstone assignment. So there is really no other place to go after this. So you you already know that you're going to you're going to retire from here. So we've been planning for the last seven years for this event. Okay? Well, that's good. Well, you know, we're going to have a length your conversation, but you know, just looking at some of your notable assignments. I wanted to talk about some of those things because I I know that you're going to be getting out soon and there There are lots of things to think about. Not just your family, but healthcare and all of those other things. And so, um, looks like you. You served with special forces. He did. And United States Embassy. Yes, I was assigned to the U. S embassy in Lithuania for a about nine months back when the wall came down, and, uh, 1993, also about the same time when the National Guard created the state Partnership program, so I was on one of the first teams..

"M. I. S. right excellent command chief warrant officer five Howard Griffin the third of the U. S. Army Reserve first off almost say thank you so much for your many many years of service and I will give you another thanks for taking time out of your busy day to speak with us here this morning on Tennessee matters god bless you thank you so much in order to serve you in the nation and at the veterans this is Tennessee matters from T. R. N. matter on the radio network welcome back more than one in every ten adults that are twenty years or older have diabetes our number that continues to rise in the older you get the more likely it is that you're going to develop diabetes and have to face health factors that go with it joining me now on Tennessee matters is doctor Desmond bell the founder and president of save a wag save a life foundation welcome to Tennessee matters doctor Val you I've got to ask is that correct that's an awful high number scooter unfortunately your spot on and you know what's really disturbing is that the incidence of diabetes it has not stopped growing back in the late nineteen nineties I was actually during my training period and we had about sixteen million people with diabetes in our country at the time and now we are over thirty million the CDC actually estimates to that the number of people with pre diabetes and diabetes combined could actually be closer to one hundred million people so it's disturbing we're seeing increases in in type two diabetes in children and young people and you know this is just not a phenomenon that that's localized to the United States the it's really happen worldwide but you know where you live in in Tennessee and through that whole region you're part of a big hot spot in our country how big is Tennessee in relation to the rest of the country you're right up there at the top you know you're you're part of that I called the the the diabetes tobacco obesity built in ikana runs from Virginia all the way through the southeast into southwest Texas our student groups throughout Texas in the southwest and then even into southern California but where you all are located it's really a big big problem in your right at the top I'm sorry scooter I was gonna say maybe about eleven and a half percent of people it were Dalton Tennessee have diabetes and so you know you compare that to you know around the country when you're mentioned earlier about maybe ten ten percent so you're you're exceeding the national norm not a good place to be no why do you think it has become the issue that it has this is just I am first of All I Want to ask because I know over time often the the diagnosis for some diseases you your change as you learn more about the disease is this the case with diabetes or has it largely remained in place and our habits have just become that bad you know I think there are multiple multiple factors in in all this and you know really we can look at our society and lifestyle things that go on you know as the person was a baby boomer myself growing up when I did you know first of all I don't really recall seeing many obese kids it and even in my graduating class of over four hundred people the room we just didn't happen and we also didn't eat a whole lot of fast food back in the day either we just kind of gather around the family dinner table every night and processed foods were not something that we really we really it took in our bodies but you know were also active back then we weren't sitting there being entertained constantly by the whether it's a pity your computer or some type of game were outside playing and being active all the time so I think you know you look at where we've gotten diss this is part of the problem who would you say would be more risk for diabetes now great question so the most obvious answer to that is if anybody has a family history of diabetes that automatically puts you at higher risk of developing diabetes as well and then when you break it down even into ethnicities African Americans Hispanic native Americans are all predisposed to have a greater risk of developing diabetes now is not just the diagnosis of diabetes meaning your A. one C. has risen to a certain level diabetes impacts every aspect pretty much of your physiology is that correct that's absolutely well stated scooter every cell in your body is affected negatively by diabetes your metabolism become slower your ability to fight infection is diminished and then when you start to develop other systemic problems you know obviously we hear about people talking about you know vision issues kidney problems let's talk about some of these things because this is really what leads to some of the obvious symptoms such as some you know diabetic foot ulcer but you know one of the things that we tend to see many diabetics is number one heart disease coronary artery disease got plaque build up through the arteries in your body which the unit arteries again just pump the blood to every area of your body but as you get into the lower extremities down into the legs on the feet the vessels become smaller so we've got another condition called peripheral arterial disease so that decreases blood flow down to the feet you've also got the facts on the nervous system so over time many people with diabetes develop a condition called peripheral neuropathy where they have a number of symptoms that can be in this basket but one of the most dangerous one is the loss of protective sensation or or the ability to feel so in other words if somebody with her from the rock the steps on a sharp object or hot surface they can actually do a lot of harm and damage to their to their skin and themselves without even realizing it so now if somebody develops even something as simple as a blister or callous it can lead to something that we call a diabetic foot ulcer and I want to talk more about that because that is one of the leading problems that diabetics phase abdic Lee is the age I know my mom suffers with diabetes she's type one has been since juvenile she was juveniles so she's been dealing with them for a long time and unfortunately I know when her case it is one of those things that she has to stay on top she needs to see a podiatrist every so often this does increase your regimen of doctors that you see correct yes that's true we in you know scooter it's interesting you know in your mom's case I I've seen this just as a kind of an opinion but over the years of dealing with patients who have been diabetic since they were younger I've seen those are the people that tend to take better care of themselves because they've been managing this condition successfully for many many years it's the people who are newly diagnosed or who don't want to admit that they have diabetes or the ones who really run into the most problems so it's it's really an issue that yet you've got to confront this and you're correct it does mean more visits to specialists but again if if you take better care of yourself there will be as many visits going to the emergency department or being in the hospital or you know having to be seen by all these other specials every diabetic should be followed by a cardiologists number one they should also be followed by a podiatrist out of sight out of mind you know we've we've known for just even a study was done at Duke University a couple years back just going to a podiatrist and having somebody look at your feet at least once or twice a year automatically decreases the risk of lower extremity amputation so just looking at the huge huge help doctor doesn't bell is the founder and president of the save a life saver wide foundation he's also our guest on Tennessee matters more talking about diabetes it and doctor bell I I know we got to go here in just a moment but insulin prices is that something what caused that to become so out of control in Europe well that that that's a whole nother topic for discussion I'm sure it has something to do with supply and demand but I I will tell you scooters I I will let your listeners do you.

"Colonel in late August two thousand seventeen when the category? Four hurricane Harvey slammed into the southeast coast of Texas it caused devastating damage and flooding in many in the Houston metropolitan area. We're struggling to find a way out of town. But with the airports close and flights grounded Cousquer, Lieutenant run aqua Russell enter counterparts out of coast guard air station, Corpus Christi were on the winning end at twenty eight years of age. Russell was one of eight Cousquer pilots to be awarded the prestigious Cousquer air medal for operations in the wake of the deadly hurricane and the award presented on February twenty first and Tuskegee Alabama made history. She is the first African American woman in the service to ever receive the coast guard air metal. Russel's H C one forty four ocean century aircraft pilot, and she'd already been at work in the days before the storm made landfall on August twenty fifth just hours after the storm hit the crew was back in the air, conducting damage assessments and transporting people in gear and conditions too. Rough for most people Russell said, quote, we were tasked with doing damage assessment from Brownsville Leary up to port O'Connor. But when we got the poorer Connor the hurricane was actually still there. It was so bad. We ended up needing to turn back. However missed the stormy conditions on a partially flooded runway. The weather would not stop them from making the very first landing in Houston after the hurricane Russell. So that the approaching landed into Houston was the worst weather she'd ever seen with extremely low visibility and very hard rain. And even though the circumstances were frightening. The pilots knew it was up to them to complete the logistics and transport mission. Nobody else was flying in and out of Houston. The coast guard was alone in the air. It would end up being a multi marathon for Russell. And the other pilots who weren't sure when backup and rest would arrive. They ended up playing for nearly five days before new pilots were recalled to assist with a hurricane. But for Russell the challenges that came with the hurricane did not just done there. She's shifted from replying role to position to Harvey incident. Command post as the air coordinator, her attention was pulled to another hurricane making landfall two thousand miles away in the Virgin Islands. It is here with the story really gets interesting. You see Russel grew up in the Virgin Islands in her, mom and grandmother still live there. Of course, our first instinct was to make your way to the Virgin Islands to find her family members. But her chain of command convince her that was not the wise move. Ultimately, she was able to negotiate travel for them from Saint Thomas to Puerto Rico via boat and ultimately to the United States. Well, her mom soon returned home, her grandmother decided to stay with brussel and even moved with her to her next duty station in Miami. Still on the job. Russell would ultimately be sent to support storm relief in the wake of yet another hurricane Maria, which devastated Puerto Rico in September two thousand seventeen although Russell said she was excited to learn should be honored with the coast guard medal. She didn't realize that the time she would be making history by earning it, in my opinion. Her best statement was that she's going to keep doing this until it's no longer fun. I salute this great coastguard pilot. And I look forward to the opportunity to meet her and shake her hand for fertilizer freedom. I'm Chief Warrant Officer, Roland Ashby. Thanks rolling. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you. Straight ahead on frontlines of freedom. We'll discuss national medal of honor day with general Carr horse, then musician and activist Ted Nugent. We'll discuss the challenges facing our nation security, foreign and domestic all this is coming up. I'm Colonel Denny Gillam. You are standing tall with the frontlines of freedom other.

"Why don't you tell us about it? Yeah. Well, one of them. I don't know. I don't know if it's fully retirement. So it's a client of mine who sold out from down. Here wanted to move up to the Reno area and kind of the fun part about Facebook. I guess my clients and they're posting when they're done trips or other stuff, and of course, for her new home there. She's experiencing her first taste of what a real winter is since in the bay area. We don't really have those tough tough winters and don't have snow on our front lawn or anything like that. Or why she posted something one day where she plowed everything out. And then by that evening. It was all back again, she just kinda wondering why should bother, but she's actually still working part-time. She's actually went enough their job because she kinda wanted to keep going. But now she's living the more the lifestyle she wants to do. So now, she's working because she wants to because she's got got to which I think's probably almost the number one definition for. I think for most people for retirement today is not having to work but wanting to. To work at something. You wanna be doing versus something you got to be doing? And so that's the nice age. She's in the spot. She wants to be she's now free from California taxes, which is helpful. She's definitely. Little Kohler right now than she was before. Probably be a lot hotter this summer. But yeah, she's in the spot. She wants to be doing the things she wants to do. And so. I think that's kind of more and more going to be the definition retirement. Where people don't. Yeah. They move to retirement location. But they may not stop working. They maybe he's still doing stuff maybe still working for a fun job and just still doing things so keeping active, but just not the traditional thing that we've always thought about is. I mean, I don't think anybody today once retired sit on the rocking chair on the front porch anymore. And yeah. People used to actually do that. I don't know if they really did. Or we just always said that pitcher in our heads whittled since hasn't boy scouts and takes a long time for me. I was probably girl scouts Eric. Plus, you ended up cutting your fingers that's not so good. But but yeah. So so I mean, it's more about having fun just enjoying things. And do what you wanna do. That's the nice is for her. We'd already had the plan. We had the plan for income. We're just not turning it all in. I mean, she's getting some income now, but we're not using it, and we can turn it on anytime. So it's kind of like a faucet, it's flowing. But right now, it's filling up the tub of money. And then whenever you want. We can start drains some out to us. So yeah, that's the nice part about having a plan because you know, you can do this. If you didn't know you could do this, then it's very scary. Right. So involves sending you move. And. Yeah, you're getting a job is maybe not as much income. And now how did that screw up for retirement? If you do it all that stuff without having that that plan in place, I it can be tough. And again, so so that's really why I spent the time to create this this blueprint worry less wealth because my mom used to always say now, how are we gonna retire? You know, well, how am I gonna live on this? Stuff and she was called her Chief Warrant Officer. And so that's that's really what I wanted to give people's ability not to have to worry so much and retirement. So that's why we create that income plan that vestment tax healthcare legacy plan.

"Let me share one mistake churches. Make when forming any type of safety team. They figure all we have to do is delegate a few members to carry a gun inside the church, and then while up like magic, we are now safe in the mass shooter problem is taken care of just like any form of combat. It doesn't work that way. Gunfighting is a skill set. Composed of drawing moving and shooting, and it takes a lot of training and practice to become proficient at these skills after all owning a gun doesn't make you a gunfighter anymore than owning your tar makes you a rockstar. You can never get enough training. But here's the one aspect that. Most people overlook and that is the question of courage. I'm reminded of a quote from the nineteen Ninety-one moving Robin Hood prince of thieves. There was an exchange between Robin Hood played by Kevin Costner and will scarlet played by Christian Slater. Where will ask Robin? What would you have us? Do fight armored men on horseback with rocks and bare hands if needs be but with the one true weapon that escapes, you will courage, and that is so true. Not just a church, but in all aspects of our lives wherever we go. Whether we're civilians are fighting for our country on the battlefields in a far off land, courage can always be with you. It's your birthright before God. But you must choose to accept it and exercise it. Do you recall the energy crisis way back in the seventies? Under president Jimmy Carter. There were long lines at the gas pump. And the president did a speech wearing a sweater and asked us all to dial down our thermostats to meet the emergency that crisis has come and gone. But there is a new crisis in America. It's called the hero crisis. It seems that we have an overabundance of snowflakes people who melt away at the first sign of trouble people will go out of their way to melt into the background, especially when someone needs help. This has never been more pronounced than it is today. Now when someone needs help people into the background then pull out their cell phones and start filming as our brothers and sisters are attacked beaten. And sometimes even killed. Like, I said we have a real shortage of heroes. These days in America to be fair. We still have heroes in law enforcement and the military and many of us veterans, but we are dying breed and that death saddens me. But it doesn't have to be this way. Parents raise your children to be brave and courageous to stand up for what is right to protect the weekend to defend the innocent teach them that being a protector is virtuous simply because it's the right thing to do to be sure sometimes heroes die in the line of duty. But cowards die to the only difference is how your killed would you have your children die on their knees with a bullet to the back of the head or in the chest as they attack evil. I know what you're thinking because I'm thinking too. I don't want my kids to die at all. I understand that. But here's the rub. We don't get to choose. What happens to us? We only get to choose how we respond to what happens to us. So starting out by raising the next generation of heroes for America because we. Desperately need strong virtuous men and women to protect our children and our way of life. Teach your children that they are children of God that they are nobility. There's another quote from Robin Hood prince of thieves where Robin Hood is talking to made Marian. I have seen the noblest night run at the site of battle. And I've seen the lowliest squire poulos fear from his own body to protect a dying horse. Nobility is not a birthright it is defined by one's actions. Greater love has no person and the lay down their life where friend when you're in the church pew and you hear gunshots. The serfs and peasants will cower beneath the bench, but the true nobility. The heroes, regardless of their station in life will rise up an attack. They're the true heroes among us, and we need more of them. And those are my comments for today. This is a marine vet skip coryell. You're listening to frontlines of freedom. And now we get to enjoy some warrant wisdom with Chief Warrant Officer, Roland Ashby. What do you have to share this week Rowland? Skip the military is some of the worst offenders when it comes to acronyms infected a so bad that when I've been working with civilians and military environment. I was told him to ask for an ACS. What's an ACS? Well, it's an acronym cheat sheet, so really unique form of acronym. Torture. The US army tank automotive research development and engineering center, which is known as USA tarmac has been renamed. The US army combat capability development center ground vehicle system center. Nothing about it for a second. That acronym is USA CCD GV SE the name change came about. Because the army research development engineering. Command is being renamed the army combat capabilities development. Command is making. Cardiac the CDC ground vehicle system center. Who that acronym? CDC GV SE even has a Twitter account. And if you don't want to mention each and every letter when referencing this new command, you can just call it. The sea said sig Vic, which means and soldiers speak. Holy crap. This acronym. It's insane. The best part is that this isn't even the military's a this acronym. The best my knowledge that honor belongs to add com up or com fibs pack or the navy's administrative command and fitness forces Pacific fleet sub ordinate command. Who thought DARPA acronyms are bad for the freedom. I'm Chief Warrant Officer Roland Ashby, you skip thanks rolling. As always that was great stuff. Straight ahead on frontlines of freedom. We'll discuss sheepdog seminars Jimmy mix then de-escalation of force with Krav Maga instructor Craig gray. All this is coming up. I'm reinvest skip coryell. You are standing tall with frontlines of freedom. I'll be right back troops. It's time to hop up onto the treadmill. Let's do a five mile forced March, and relax and stand at ease..
