"Now, we get to discuss cops with a novel written by host skip coryell. Joe fair a Vietnam vet who going to be interviewed right now. But we had a scheduling disconnect. So we'll have Joe on an old later show this novel that skipped just finished is about policemen. And I really am interested in this. Because my whole family is basically cops I'm the oddball by being in the army, my dad's father was a police officer killed in the line of duty. My uncle was up full career and the FBI my sister just retired from police department in California my son's a cop. So I'm the oddball in my family. I'm the only one to serve the military. So when skip wrote a novel about police officers and. Skipped does tend to provide a little action in his novels. They wouldn't exact I guess who is supposed to be a romance novel rights, get well romance is a relative term right Colonel. I mean, what's romantic to marine or an army ranger may be romantic to a woman. Now, that's not politically, correct. Because we all know there is no difference between men and women. Well, yes. And all of us men are toxic. Sometimes I understand that too. Yes. This is something about toxic masculinity to. That's right originally. I had set out to write a romance primarily because number one I thought it would be easy quick and easy. Right. And I knew they sold. Well, and I thought well, I'll go ahead. I'll give it a shot. I went out. I did my research. That was the first two marriages was research Colonel. But then I went ahead, and I read to harlequin romance novels and what I discovered is. You know, they were pretty much identical. All they did was change the names, you know, maybe the way the characters looked a little bit, but it's a formula novel. And I thought you know, what this is going to be really really easy. And but then I started writing, and I seems to me your wonderful wife, Sarah. Convinced you that your maybe you're on the wrong path. Yeah. As wives tend to do from time to time, she guided me, and she said. Honey. I know you had your heart set on this. But I've got to tell you that this isn't very romantic at all. And I guess her values on whether it is or not are better than yours or judgments better. Oh, she's definitely much more romantic than I am. I asked her. Why said Honey why why isn't this romantic, and she says well because you keep killing off all the characters, you know? And it's like Colonel you've taught me what's the military's job kill people break things. That's right. And that's how I write apparently romance novels aren't like that. So you found at least one area that you are not particularly strong. That's exactly right. So what's the name of this this novel originally, it was going to be titled Jack pine romance? But I've altered that just a little bit. Now. It's call Jack pine strong. Okay. So, you know, it's set in the upper peninsula chicken, upper peninsula of Michigan on the key one oppinion Sula and for those of you in Florida. It's just really. Cold all the time in summer last like three days if you're lucky and if you go north you're in Canada. That's right. Yeah. You if you go north you're drowning in lake superior first. And then you're again, that's right. But it is set in a small fictional town called Jack pine, and it is just about a chief of police named Jack Ruger. I love that name, Jack, Ruger, it's very usual. Alaska. Yeah. Firearm like, I just love it. Okay. This is Colonel Denny Gilman frontlines of freedom and host skip coryell. And I are discussing his new non romance novel written about a police officer in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Yeah, colonels. This book is totally unlike anything I've ever done. In that. I wrote it in too much. It's like one hundred and eighty five pages, but I sat down and this one flow. I mean once I figured out. It wasn't a romance. It went really really fast, and boy was two months, and it was done. And boy it was like four months ago. I published the blind man's rage. I've never written a novel this quickly before that's uncommonly faster. Anybody regardless of their experience law specially among marine this unusual for us to even read. And write, you know, that's true. That's one of the things. Hold me back. I'm only model shoulder rated. That's right. That's right. Well. Police chief, right. Yes. Well, police chief of a small town. So basically, you know, he's the police chief, but he is the police force. He's the entire force. You know, there's like three hundred and seventy eight people in the whole town. So and there's a diner there. And everyone knows everybody. If you take that old sitcom, cheers and move it into the upper peninsula where people talk funny. That's what you have. Then you add an escaped convict and add the escaped convict who is angry with Jack Ruger for putting him away in prison. You know, five years before. And so he escapes from prison, and he's come back and he's gunning for Jack Ruger, chief, Ruger, and that's the plotline. And there's a lot of other twists and turns. You know, there's some surprises in there. And there is a love interest. Oh, and I won't tell you whether or not Jack gets the girl. But. You'll have to read that to find out, but he loves his pistol. Oh, definitely. Yes..

"Deputy convoluted rules engagement, which is something that we have rectify, but we also need to fix the situation with these guys. Officers believers they have so much power on the battlefield. Let our men and women deployed these combat. So I was to do what they need to do. And that is like I said gauge and kill the enemy if that's not what we want them to do. Then maybe we should just have the jazz officers right litigation against these people. But we can't treat it as a law enforcement issue where we have to go out and build a case or field and present evidence against people when you find the enemy, you're them, and you destroy that's what we're trying to do. And we wouldn't we shouldn't send our combat troops somewhere in combat to do anything but destroy the enemy. That's why we send up you want. Something else done send the UN or the peace corps or somebody else not our combat troops. Yes. Correct. Okay. Well, we've covered a very very important topic. But it has been quite a year. This is Colonel Denny Gilman frontlines of freedom Colonel west, and I are about to discuss some of the challenges facing our nation that we have faced this past year and going forward, I think I can say safely. This is probably the most dangerous time our nation has faced in my lifetime. I was alive the beginning of World War Two. It's really unstable out. There isn't it? Yes. It was incredibly stable, and you know, one of the things that Ronald Reagan cord was an incredible term called peace through strength and strength has be shown by a credible military deterrent force, which allows you to have your diplomatic actions or your economic sites. But if you don't have a credible military force that can back up, you know, what you're doing diplomatically and economically. Then you're not going to be successful. And sadly, we live in a world with all these strong banned Russia, China, Iran, North Korea Islamic Jihad is. That many times. The only thing they understand is strapped then is power and Mike and for those people that believe that we have to be more. I don't know comb by issue. That's not going to feel the deal. That's not going to get you where you need Coppee who persuade these folks not to take the type of you know, actors that they are taking I totally agree with you. And they say nature report. A vacuum sodas power power pulls out like us, some other power come in dictators. And I think that's one of the concerns that we have. I know that the president has made his decision about the troops in Syria. But when I sit in this, you know, sir, you, and I know the two thousand troops. That's not a big deal first foremost. And the thing is the folks that are really doing the fighting or the ground the Kurds, and as long as we have that support that is there to able them to age and destroy the enemy, which they had done. Helping us with ISIS. I think everything's going to be absolutely how shipping and if we decide to withdraw troops as we did with President Obama's administration. So what's gonna feel that boy to that back and they have done that before? And there's a potential that happening again. Yes, it is. And if there's one thing that press doesn't seem to cover, and that's that country of Turkey hates Kurds and watched to kill God. Yeah. Without a doubt. And you know, I understand you're a leader of the United States Barikot. But I would not take a call from president urged Turkey, especially president is making threat. I'd say, hey, dude, you know, Powell fan because here is Turkey president Erta one that has been supporting Islamic Jihadism. Yes. There's a reason why ISIS was able to establish itself. A Sierra the first place. He was allowing these four or five hours to transit through Turkey across the board or go into Syria. So for him now to start acting like a boy. Scout give me a break. And we know historically what the called out of an empire, but what Turkey has done with many of the religious minorities their their series, the caldeans. They are means, and we know the angst of the the hatred that they have the courage other than Israel, second only to Israel. Those are best allies at the Middle East in the last thing we need to do is for the third fourth time betray them. Yes. Yes, sir. Fortunately, in my opinion, we got enough American troops stationed around in the Mideast that if we have to go back in it won't be that big a deal. But yes, we do. Get tired of going back in. I mean, that's the thing. You know? I I gotta tell you going all the way back to George Bush and his mission accomplished banner a unilateral withdrawal, President Obama about this. If there's one thing that the military gets tired of is, you know, politicians Baker stupid decisions based upon, you know, campaign promises or whatever. And then we have to go back and clean up and try to you know, restore victory that we already had it had achieved at at were you all the way to maintaining that victory. You know, ISIS has not been defeated. Yes. They're territorial integrity has been severely reduced. But they are still they're ISIS is a mindset as well. You know, it is not about a geographic territory it's about eliminating as best as you possibly can Bridget hottest mentality. And they're still fifteen to you know, some reports after thirty thousand ISIS fighters that are still in and around that area. So. Alvis said you pull out they come back, they reemerge and even more. So the people that are the words of refugees try to come back to their home the nicest goes right back to doing what they did before. Well, unfortunately, I agree with you totally. There's more to discuss about what's happening in our nation right now and go to be.

"You have a great family Christmas. Lots of family and eating too much. Good food. Well, that means you got PT more. Yes, sir. It does. As a matter of fact, I'm not shape because rounders shape. Allen. It's been quite a year hasn't it? I know that you're involved a bit with. The Clinton Iran's case you want to add anything to so my comments. Well, you know, recently, we just heard about the US army major Matthew Yukos state, and the fact that the army is going to try to again for the second time where they charge him with. The enemy premeditated murder, which we're going to start charging are women in combat zones with premeditated murder with rice speeding tickets at the Daytona five hundred. But you think about the case where you know, magical, Saint had his special forces tab taken away from him his silver star revoked and is look at what happened with Clint lower ran, you know, first of all we gotta get these Jag officers under control that stop having them dictate. What our combat leaders are doing out there on the battlefield which is what we asked to do which is doing engage and kill the enemy, and when you have someone like a Clinton harass that is fending twenty years in prison for doing exactly that as opposed to a Bo bergdahl who is out walking treat. You know? What message does that send to the men and women that we have as soldiers sailors, airmen marines these combat zones? So when I look at where we are relatively at our legal system. You just kind of have to. Scratch your. Here's what Bradley Manning and all the free, but we're prosecuting people like major goals St. Matthew, girls, state and Clinton harasser sitting behind bars. I think that this is one of the key things we should be pressing the commander in chief President Trump about as well as whomever is sitting in the chair secretary of defense. Amen, my friend. I know that as a rifle platoon leader in Vietnam. I did most of the things Clinton Marantz. Did it wasn't something on a motorcycle that I had my guys? Engage, but I would have done it in a heartbeat if he'd been there. So we need to get this aspect under control. I think secretary Madison a good job in a lot of other areas. But that's one area that needs some work. Yeah. And when you think about the fact that in case the army prosecution the military officers the Jag officers what's called exculpatory evidence that would have exonerated him. So why would lawyers be so hell bent on convicting combat leader? Instead of presenting the truth and allowing the truth to speak for itself. So you're withholding actual Pretoria evidence. If anything those Jag officer ship either wants to reprimanded sitting behind bars. Not quite Laura. That's a good point. And you know in my two years in Vietnam. I never saw a Jag officer below division level. And I was a rifle platoon leader in a rifle company commander. What were they doing down talking to people in a platoon? I think there's just too many Jag officers. These days. Well, we have ceded too much power to thority who these Jag officers because we have these very deputy convoluted rules engagement, which is something that we have rectify, but we also need to fix the situation with these Dag officers believers, they have so much power on the battlefield let our men and women deployed these combat do what they need to do. And that is like I say gauge and kill the enemy if that's not what we want them to do. Then maybe we should just have the Jag officers. You know, right litigation against these people. But we can't treat it as a law enforcement issue where we have to go out and build a case or field and present evidence against people when you find the enemy, you engage them, and you destroy. That's what we're trying to do. And we wouldn't we shouldn't send our combat troops somewhere in combat to do anything but destroy the enemy.

"Now, it's time to meet a fellow West Point or a combat vet and a guy spent a lotta time working for our Veterans Administration, including a very senior level. Alan Clarke knows the VA. So welcome to frontlines of freedom. Alan I'm delighted to be with you today. Allen. Let's start by talking about your time in mother army. Why did you decide to go to West Point? What did you do when you graduate? Well, I was an army brat living in occupied Japan after World War Two and naturally collected army patches found one one day ask dad, what was he said. That's West Point is what do they do? He says they train officers the US army. I was on my way I was motivated. I'd noticed different ones around the base that he said were academy graduates man, I was ready to go. I what free hard the rest of my schooling to be prepared. And apparently it worked it did. Back in our day. We were all engineering major. So I don't have to ask you about that. What branches you go? What did you do when you got out? Well, I was originally a combat engineer Corbin years, you know, when we had this five combat arms. They were commissioning branches very quickly within a couple of years. My first wife decided that she didn't want to be an army wife. So I had to make different plans either plan on retiring period or trying to salvage my military career. And I tried to salvage it by French burnt, the military intelligence that didn't work either watch it happened. So I was on my way nation to become secure. But knowing I could not resign. We're like going on my volunteered for Vietnam. Chirps with out telling her, I take it that didn't go too. Well, but you're still alive. So something work, right? Well, it took twenty five years Verda. Forgive me. Well, the issue is she did she did. Well, it was a spiritual deal header forgive me back in the early nineties. Well. I believe real world is a spirit world get something accomplished there. It's done generally speaking. That's the real world. That's for sure. So you got out what you do. Then. Once you cheer for warzone, you're gonna go. Oh, yeah. I was transferred to Vietnam as a military intelligence officer. My original assignment was with a military intelligence catchment admit Trang, which is the gravy Arab South Vietnam on the coast and I was assigned as a prisoner interrogator. That's what I'd been trained as but there were no pressure to interrogates. I wrote even have that much to do. I met a special forces Lieutenant Colonel who was in charge of the central highlands area of about thirty special forces as we call eight camps back then and he said, well, if I transfer over he will make the two which is the intelligence officer of one of the what was then the BP which companies today, I believe in the green berets so I transferred over, but it didn't happen because they put me in a clandestine unit that I was not told about for about two weeks before somebody called me what my actual mission the loss. So you weren't. One of those things if I tell you I'll have to kill your kind of things. And then finally they did have to tell you because they wanted to do the work. Well, it the initiation of a clandestine unit to collect intelligence against Cambodia, which at the time was a privilege sanctuary was supposedly neutral, but prince Sihanouk the chief of state allowed the communists come down the whole team then trail and bases of operation. Just inside the Cambodian border to come across and attack us, and they go back to the privileged area which were safe because we would not follow them into Cambodia. So we wanted to collect intelligence on those areas until my unit was set up to do that. So to say that you have a slightly confidential type of job would be understood by all means. Yeah. It's what's called a unilateral operation. We did not collaborate with South Vietnamese army. He was confined to just US people in the green berets to do the operation. Okay. And presumably do that for a year. Were you personally involved in combat? No, I was not for a ten months. I had some very entry assignment post for one month. I was assigned to debrief by interviews. A Cambodian officer who had defected to the friendly live. So the allies in South Vietnam. So we got up what's called operational intelligence on a very interesting fellow. He spoke seven languages any been trained appreciable Mumbai university, which is school for revolutionaries in Moscow to send people all over the world. So I did that upper month. And then I live with Cambodian anti-communist. Young men for three months to attempt to infiltration missions my helicopter, quote, close to get them across the border to spy on the enemy of that didn't work in penetrable jungle. My assignment was at the. Tampa which I was wounded in June of nineteen sixty seven mile eleven months of Mike tour of duty. Okay. So you did that the you came back to the United States? Your wound was pretty severe wasn't it. Well, at that special forces eight can't my third assignment and attachment be five seven I wish they are recruiting agents to go into the enemy territory again for spying and regular North Vietnamese army combat titan attacked our camp Hume seventeenth nineteen sixty seven mortar and rocket barrage. I was out in the open numbers attempt to get counter battery fire on the enemy positions and also get Clair's Amir expected grounded back which had not happened over. The course of that action by me one of those rounds hit to my career and took my left leg off the knee completely totally an immediately. On my stomach, but white leg was broken in five places. But other than that. You're okay, right. So obviously at that point you going to be evacuated and come back to the states and out of rehab. I was predicting much RIA including fourteen weeks, and it closed psychiatric ward because I had had what would later have been termed Oester, Matic stress disorder, but in nineteen sixty seven that was not off the books for psychiatric diagnoses. But that's what ended up becoming where I had to get straightened out stabilized and went on psychiatric drugs medications psychiatrists for seven or eight years after that. How did that work? Well, I always was kind of scared because I had that break, and I really felt small not just physically but felt small psychologically, and I think that's what happened for those of us who get wounded severely were scared about what we're going to do with our life. How we're going to make a living how we're gonna take care of our family. So all took talented, all of those factors. Entered may we're part of the process that I had to undergo get stable again first job after graduate school where I wanted to ask for an MBA for the boss grow as a personal financial assistance to him reporting directly to him. He was a presidential candidate couple times later at that time. He was a very successful entrepreneur break down because I pushed myself too much Eddie hospitalized them. I believe the F employment. Well, wasp pros company. Okay. So like most people you just try your best to get on with life to to make success. And like a lot of people in that situation. You didn't realize how deep the wounds were is that a fair somewhat. Well, that's true. And you know, I had the demons that I dealt with were sadness and anger because of a loss of my legs. And what I was an app to do and what it took to then have no mobility than I'd had four play tennis and be halfway into run so forth as a young officer. But everyone that goes to war doesn't even if they get modestly wounded subjected to the improvised explosive. Devices today with the ambushes and so forth or being or of war or things. Some of it works in the line hospitals are back in the hospitals and puts up with the surgeries if they witness on the stamps and clinical people, we all have our demons to deal with them. We all suffer in some way. Modestly or majorly fanatic stress from combat we do and there's more to discuss about post medics dress and the VA analysis going to stay with us. This is Colonel Denny Gilman.

"I like that Jefferson, experienced economist, financial and technology journalist executive and author anyway welcomed frontlines of freedom jobs. Thank you for having me, a pleasure to be here. Jeff Starbucks giving our listeners a bit about your background. How do you find yourself from a guy who just started his career way back when to be an expert on China and tariffs growth or progression? Or maybe as regression. Well, I'll try and tell us the story I was an economist and a financial journalist, and then I went into the technology industry late nineteen nineties for about fifteen years. I worked in the computer networking industry. Much of that time. I was living in Silicon Valley, and we had a great little company. We did an IPO or three founders were brilliant guys. And we found ourselves losing business to a Chinese competitor. Which was backed by no less than I think the figure is thirty billion dollars a government subsidy, which is more money than my little Silicon Valley company had generated revenue it's whole sort of fifteen year life. And it was impossible to compete against them in this reawakened, my interest in the trading situation and the US economy, and I made contact with the coalition for prosperous America who two years ago were looking up their ability to doing original research. And so I joined the team, and I'm very happy. I did the coalition is a coalition of bipartisan, we have manufacturers labor union and agricultural groups on our board and among our members, and we're all United by the fact that we think international trade is made problem for the US economy rebuilding manufacturing needs to be a major objective and restoring economic growth. So that's what we're all about. Well, it certainly sounds like something every American would want to see you be successful. Okay. So I'm not too knowledgeable about China. But I know their economy is second only to ours, and that they are very focused on being number one power in that region in the world. I also know they're having a population problem not enough people in upcoming generations. Another economy is having a major slowdown at the moment. Is what I think I know crew by what you know. Yes. I think you're broadly. Right. I mean, I think the issue is we see it is that free trade is a great idea in theory. But if other countries don't practice it if they're taking advantage of free trade by subsidizing their products keeping out imports into their country and using other techniques to make sure they export far more than they import. That's a problem for you free trade country, which is what this country has been at least for the last twenty years and probably longer than that. And then as you say China has industrialized to a massive extent over the last thirty years and have become the second largest economy in the world more than three times the size of Germany's economy, for instance, and they have begun in the last several years, but a lot of money into their military budgets, and it's very clear. I mean, they said it they wanna be the regional number one power in Asia. And who knows where they want to go beyond that and many of their Asian neighbors are very worried, and so you put all that together. And you I haven't really talked much about the stagnation in US incomes and the decline in so many of our industries, but those are major factors in mind. And so what you need is an economic policy designed to stop the trade cheating to help the US improve its trading position and rebuild its economy. And so the tariffs that we've seen from President Trump are we believe the right thing to do. And I want to emphasize whereby partisan. There are Democrats like Senator Chuck Shinn move support these tariffs the point is you need to rebuild you industry. You can't do that in the world environment without Harris and the tower seemed to be working because they're actually at the mall in creating more jobs than they are eliminating. This is Danny Gillerman from is a freedom of we're discussing China and tariffs with the center for prosperous, America's Jeff Eric, Jeff that makes sense. Tariff-free open free trade situation works. Well, if everybody plays, and if everybody doesn't play and somebody gets stuck, and apparently that's been us. So put this in the context of China now house China can respond to this. I would guess that. They don't like it. But there's no replacing the American public for buying product. There isn't another equivalent group in the world is there. Well, let's absolutely right. I did a study called overexposed a few weeks ago, which showed that more than half of China's trade surplus is accounted for by the US. And in some years. I mean, the statistics are actually hard to confirm because we've got to rely on China for some of the statistics. In some of the early years in this century, we were one hundred percents of their trade surplus. In other words, they were running a deficit with the rest of the world. But basically building product assembling products, like toys and consumer goods and exporting at all to the US consumer because the US is like I said, I'm now you pre-trade or that's what we have been. And so we've allowed our industries to disintegrate and just bought cheap Chinese goods instead. And now that we're enacting Taras, as you know, there are tariffs on fifty billion dollars worth of Chinese imports. And the president is setting they close to putting the green light on another two hundred billion dollars worth of tariffs. That is already having a significant effect on the Chinese economy. One of the things I've noticed is that a number of manufacturing companies in China have said we're diversifying were opening plants in southeast Asia Vietnam, Thailand, wherever they're diversifying because they can see that this the US blockage on Chinese. Imports might last for many years, and they think they'll be in a better position if they're able to produce elsewhere in Asia. And of course, we want to see them produce morning nited states, and we're hoping that trade policy leaves companies in that direction. Well, that makes a great deal of sense. So China in one respect they're a big power. But in another respect they are somewhat tied to the market that they need, and that's us. So they're gonna talk big and bad. But there's not much. They can do is that a fair statement. Yeah. I think your general conclusion is correct. China's in a weak position because their economy dependence on exports exports and dependent upon the United States. You know now there are things they can do they're trying retaliation. And you know, let's be honest politics is a fragile game. It's very hard to predict. I mean, if they so far they retaliation hasn't hit the US economy, very hard. Now, they choose to retaliate, very hard and try to block and target. Certain. American exports agriculture Princeton's, you know, is that going to affect the political landscape here. I guess it's possible things they could do. But frankly, I think they don't want to get aggressively hostile towards their best customer the United States. 'cause even when all these tariffs come into play. We still buy more smartphones than anybody else in the world. And there are lots of goods where that's the case. So I don't think they wanna get really hostile. I think what they wanna do is engage in financial engineering within China to keep propping up their own. Economy, you know, build more trains build more skyscrapers build more cities in the middle of nowhere. That is a logical strategy because they're caught between two pressures. Now, the US were saying, hey, we don't want to be the dumping ground for all your goods on the other hand, they've got I think it's ten million people enter the workforce every single year in China, and they've got to find jobs for those people and they've raised expectations. People are no longer happy in China being peasant farmers burying potato bowl with their hands. Now, they want to get off the farm and get into the cities. So, you know, the Chinese communist leadership's got a challenge here. I also want to say, let's not underestimate them. This is not the Soviet Union, which frankly couldn't manage any business at all it was sort of sixty years of economic disaster. And then Gorbachev made one speech the whole thing just fell apart in nineteen eighty nine the communist party of China is -tarian, and I certainly wouldn't want to live there. But I give them credit for building. Decent an economy that is productive and growing very strongly over the last twenty years good point. And there's clearly more to talk about China and Jeff gonna stay with us. This is Colonel Denny Gilman is of freedom troops hit the deck right now and rest the starting position for the push up is called the front leaning rest get into the front when he rest position and patriotic thoughts. Stay there till we come back. I wanna lean in Maine. Spartan ashes a proud sponsor the frontlines of freedom, and we'd like to thank all listeners for the support of and service to our country. Spartan ashes the leading distributor of grocery products to US commissaries and exchanges around the world. Nash we see first hand the sacrifices made to protect our freedoms.

"To the show attorney author, and former army Jag David Bobo Geno we've discussed bows outstanding, book fighting today's wars many time. On the show if you haven't. Read it go to Amazon. Or somewhere and get, fighting. Today's wars today we're gonna take a different tack we're gonna talk about warriors to- welcome back to the. Show. Thank you so much daddy Bowe you're a former police officer. And combat that give any new listeners a quick review of your experience sure I started my career as a, police officer in Baltimore City I work the projects there and went to undergraduate and graduate school at night, and at iocpodcast into United States army. And serving eighty second airborne division in Desert Storm in third. Infantry division when it was in Germany After nine eleven kicked off with special operations forces for two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan And then, I headed up, my career it's an instructor at the US army war college in Carlisle Pennsylvania So both has. Some small idea of what combats like even as a police, officer Interesting my first, deadly force encounter was as a police officer and an awful lot of police officers and I know a. Lot of them. Don't ever have a deadly force encounter and that's not a complex it's not fun No it. Isn't. But Mercifully when I hit mine back in the eighties the homicide detectives brought me into the, detectives ran after the shooting and essentially told me to sit down and shut up and they will tell. Me what happened And it was a term that it was clearly a righteous, in the sense that I shot? Ann, Arbor headed. McDonald's restaurant at one o'clock in the morning so there, was no real dispute about the lawfulness out, it that I still have no position to give an articulate statement at those, two you know why are used force Unfortunately in some jurisdictions and I think with my old stomping grounds in Baltimore that is no longer. Happening near conducting the police and. A quarter public? Opinion and doing terrible thanksgiving officers that violates the warrior? Ethos can buy it absolutely does I'm fond of saying that, police officers are not, our brothers in arms there are first cousins and valor because they're putting their. Lives, on the line, every day under separate kinds of rules so our topic today is warriors what are they how do you get them on all that sorta stuff and while. We're talking primarily about army were not excluding specifically not excluding police officers who many times are the same games with even less rules on, their side anyway that's our direction So in my opinion Bo a warrior in. Our military and we're going to. Talk about how? Do you train them support 'em employ them identify them? And because you can use the word warrior all kinds of, different ways I'm defining, it as close combat people infantry armor special ops those kind of people that. Fit, your definition to It does, and, it it's, a historically cranial problems for human being so Iraq When he said that out of a. Hundred man ten will be warriors that can one will be a warrior leader so we're starting with a. Very small shock, group puts people and it lets. You or system nurtures spec Rupe protects them, allow them to flourish and grow you'll Stein either warrior spirit in the military. And my fear is that's exactly what's happened ever since our involvement, in Bosnia we've really down on people sticking. Their head above the surface risk-takers and we've developed a risk averse officer corps It may take, nature shooting war to turn around I agree. With you very much on that. And, again. Folks to narrow this down everybody a combat zone, can be shot at everybody in a combat zone is at risk. Whether it's from snipers or bombs or IEP DS or whatever the we're talking now why warriors about the. People who take, the fight to the enemy whose. Goal is to go face to face with, the enemy and do battle with them we're talking about those people specifically when. We talk about warriors this is Colonel Denny Gillerman frontlines of freedom, we're talking warriors with Bobo John oh okay One of? My concerns is the myth that our Pentagon subscribes to the, fact that women are the same as men. In close combat is this bother. You, Bo Yeah it does and I think more importantly it bothers people like Colonel John w Ripley. Marine Colonel Vietnam veteran maybe cost recipient Don how edge Brickley testified in nineteen Ninety-three. At the, presidential commission, on women engage in combat and his testimony is riveting it can be found in a wonderful book called in American night by Norman. Folders and Tom he? Said Here respective, of weather Individual person can shoulder the load necessary to survive in a combat setting Is it wise for us to subject Our women are ladies that type of violence And I, think the answer is no but of course I d burned. At stake at the altar of political correctness if I were to say that in a greater open and I think that's a shame. That's kind of my first. Overarching problem issue that, makes a lotta sense let's say for example hypothesized that there are. Some women who can, absolutely meet the standard I'll debate that issue but let's assume that there. Are, then women are the same as men okay but we're only dealing with volunteers now the next major war we're gonna have a, draft reffed ref women. As. Well as men and that means Suzie q. the, little girl from next door can be drafted? Where do we need most in the country And that's where. She's, going to end up and she is not one of those but you as a infantry squad leader or grunt you're going to, be half of your. Squad. Platoon company is going to be girls in the, infantry or the special forces hell that disaster It is, and the eviscerating Impact that has on good order and discipline young eighteen nineteen, and twenty one year old healthy males and females These things called hormones Greatly attracted to each other and the army tries to deal with it by creating elaborate a use of assault awareness training program, where they expect, far warriors, beat neutered you know. Act like perfect angel That's crazy warriors are young man with high testosterone levels, and God designed, them to, fight in twenty k. That's an mutable truth in universe and you. Can write all the regulations you want has all the policies you want that fact isn't going to change so you overlay that onto a battlefield situation and little. Johnny's worried about protecting, little Susie and not, worrying about fighting and saving his fellow men in his squad and as you know is, a infantry. Leader how. Disastrous that would be in a combat in, a foxhole one day for about forty eight hours Yup Oh by the, way Susie and, Susie we're in the. Wheelhouse I believe of the USS which Gerald it was either the FitzGerald McCain that was wreck in a collision in the Pacific last. Year they had a love respect and one of them in house wasn't talking to the other one in the combat information center and they crash into a. Crater That's never. Reported on that, me that's an advocate of the prices duties advocation of are maybe leadership duties point. Out this eight hundred pound gorilla and this is not putting down any women who are. In currently. In close. Combat you must who are meet. All the standards we're not putting them down we're just. Saying this. How bad idea as we go forward, and of course I have all the love and respect him. Out, in the field, with a tap, the eighty second airborne. Invasion squatted in the year trench and pants up and drove on that's fine encourage back but she was not a wilting Lowy was. Not one to pull the. Sexual harassment card every second if somebody something onto words to her she'd call them on it, and that's what winning right there It is what we need and I feel bad. For women. Like that that are caught up by, all these people that have learned how to play the game There's more to discuss about. Warriors and both going to stay with us this. Is Colonel Denny Gilman frontlines of. Freedom troops push up time, I watch do one hundred and three. Push ups I'm the leader, who how many idea every day so you should take a break we're seeing in the area but and I will be right back United American patriots defense US service members who are wrongfully accused of. A crime in. Combat this includes providing resources for legal representation during. Investigations court marshals the funding of experts post trial. Clemency and hearings appeals providing stipends.
