Fresh update on "corps " discussed on Jim Bohannon

"Maybe they'll do some routine patrols. We may have to still have their logistics mainly being driven in, so but they were minimizing the combat effectiveness in trying to actually fight a war. It became more obviously. I mean, I'm a Vietnam veteran, okay. And I was enlisted so I didn't have the big picture, but good grief, war is a messy business. And this notion of you get penalized if there is collateral damage, who the hell are these people, have they done anything between their time at the service academy and their current cushy position in The Pentagon? When you actually closely examine, let's just give a few examples. One of the bad men who's on the cover of the book a few bad men. Look at the duty stations that assignments that these people seek. You don't have to land these types of jobs by accident where you carry the football, the briefcase of codes, nuclear codes for the president. And then he had also two prior back to back assignments and coronado, California, one of the most beautiful places you could be assigned as a marine officer. And then you has tours in the marines oldest posted Washington D.C. this red carpet post. Then it enable academy to finish this up at the Pacific command. You see the kernel that threw us under the bus, our own batang commander that said Fred. No one is going to find fall. For anything you tactically, they're going to find fault because you weren't political and as a field grade officer, you must be political. He's the same guy that said Fred is it true that you guys were drunk? He believed the words that Afghan trial elders in this Taliban controlled village over his own marines, the first chance in assigned back to North Carolina when all this went on. He was not Ford. But the immediately disbelieve your own troops in immediately believe what the Taliban's propaganda is, is disgusting in the same thing happens army battle space commander, the area that we are operating in, making those public statements to the press during an ongoing criminal investigation. Completely shattering our presumption of innocence in the net started a wave of these general officers. This is Hayes, chairman. Go ahead, go ahead. I was just going to mention that when nobody stood up to defend us in our rights were being destroyed, due process. You had general Peter pace, publicly saying to the press that he spoke to a comment on win court, then general Conway, who stated to him that he was very disappointed in the conduct of these marines. Making us publicly stated to The Pentagon press corps in the same way the sergeant major Marine Corps who is supposed to have a pulse on the in looking out for the welfare of the young marines. He stated that day he retired from the Marine Corps, when you say, why would he do something like that? Because there's incentives for very senior military enlisted and officers, they're all going to go to these boards. So you just cooperate graduate and you're going to get one of these great great jobs that you couldn't even imagine. One example, general Mattis, who's the convenient authority in our case, we look at what he did by sending 45 kernel investigators and four prosecuting attorneys to dog pile in the 7 of us. And what I mean dogpile, some of that figuratively. But what I'm also referring to is where they came after a young sergeant who legally immigrated legally naturalized legally joined the Marine Corps in a forced him into this crucible where he had to make a decision between his brother's arms and his blood family is a fabricated statement. They've been the United States government prosecuting attorneys. These are Marine Corps officers. That him down sweat an M for over 21 hours in coercive into signing a document, basically nailing the coffin shut in our case. And that came out in the courtroom under sworn testimony that guess why you've never heard that before in the newspapers, Jim. Well, I pray tell. Why? Briefly. They moved the media continually out of the courtroom during all witnesses that had exculpatory evidence. That is censored that is immoral. That's something you hear about going on Tehran, but not in the United States. Everyone would certainly think so. We must pause and we'll be back in the moment. President Trump hinted that it's not a matter of if, but when. But can he really win? And what about desantis? Then can he defeat Biden?

Pelosi Trip to Taiwan Tests China’s Appetite for Confrontation

"By far the most powerful country in the world in military terms. Without any doubt. But with a home court advantage off China's coast, China has put massive resources into anti fit missiles interceptors and submarines precisely in order to be able to kill an American fleet in proximity to their coast. Their land army is terrible, peel of people's liberation armies, maybe the worst land army in the world. But their missile corps is excellent. And the studies from the air force and the Rand corporation and the office of net assessment, which I used to do some work for a Pentagon. Say that those missiles are extremely good. Now, you can argue about whether you contract moving the ship 800 miles off the coast if it's maneuvering. Can you really hit it well? The Ukrainians managed to sink the Russian flagship, the Moscow, hundred kilometers off their coast and at the Ukrainians can do it the Chinese who, after all, did put a space landing craft on The Dark Side of the Moon, probably could be able to do it. So the risk of a kinetic engagement against Chinese missiles and the possible loss of a carrier with 8000 American sailors and all of our prestige, as you say, is not a risk that we want to take.

The famous east coast base for the Marine Corps. And then I was selected for a officer commissioning program and then I spent the next three years down in Charleston at the Citadel attending college and getting a degree in becoming a commissioned officer. Then spent 18 months in the Quantico area going through the proper schooling to be an intelligence officer, and then I spent the last three years out in Hawaii at a place called Connie white bay and then finished up at camp Smith, but all of that being in

How Boris Johnson Lost the Trust of the UK

"Now you are a Marine Corps officer. You served in Fallujah, I believe. You understand the importance of saying the example. And one of the things that really started the downward spiral for Boris Johnson is during COVID, he was very much a lockdown kind of guy. And then he goes like Gavin Newsom. Yeah, but Gavin Newsom managed to skate. Boris Johnson's having these parties during lockdown at number 10 Downing Street and then it came out and the people were mad. Why is setting an example? That is as a leader sharing the burdens of your troops or as a leader or a country of your citizens, so important because I think a lot of politicians like Boris Johnson who never served in his country's military. I think to his detriment, why is it so important? Why is that such an essential part of the ethics of a Marine Corps and an army officer? Well, it goes back to being able to have the content and of the men and women that you lead over and serve with. Because as a leader, it's your job to serve with the people that are under you. And if you don't have their confidence, you can't do your job.

Former Georgia Governor Zell Miller Took Leadership to the Next Level

"As we've talked about leadership on this podcast before and it's being who you are and it's taking that ownership. Zell Miller took that to a different extreme. He took ownership of what he did. He was forceful and had a work ethic that was unmatched many times in politics to get things done. And zell Miller at the end of the day will be remembered here in Georgia for the hope scholarship, which is gave well over a $1 billion to allow students to go to college. He's will be remembered for the pre-K program at universal pre-K program. There was one of the first of its kind back in the 1990s. Again, this money from the lottery. He was a man who brought the lottery to Georgia, which most people never thought would happen, said it would go for education, made it true, and it is still working today. So why would zell Miller a Democrat who had success as a Democrat, governor, two term governor in Georgia, had a success as a United States senator appointed by the next governor Roy Barnes to fill the seat of Paul coverdale. Why would he stand at this 2004 convention and go against his own party? Go against some of the things. And it's comes down to basically his upbringing for lack of a better term. And also his experience in the United States Marine Corps. Zell Miller was a marine till he died. And Marine Corps made the lasting impression upon him that he wrote down in a little book called core values. Corbett is everything you need to know. I learned in the marines. And I was going back through my bookshelf the other day and I was reading through this and I was looking at political courage and I was seeing Joe Biden and the Biden administration seemingly blaming everybody else in the world for all of their problems and everything going on.

Biden Administration Cancels $5.8 Billion in Student Loan Debt

"Ladies and gentlemen, you're listening to my guests, Adam kissel, visitor, visiting fellow on higher education reform at the heritage foundation. We're here to discuss the debt forgiveness that Joe Biden has done for the Corinthian colleges. And I was reading in an article with the Corinthian college became one of the most prominent examples of bad behavior. One of the things that they said allegedly are allegations of illegal recruiting tactics, shady education programs and false promises to students about their career prospects and their potential future earnings. Is this a conflict of interest specifically that Joe Biden is forgiving the debt and loans from a university that appears to have been participating in alleged fraudulent behavior and really they've done these kids wrong in many cases. It's Joe Biden putting himself in danger of a conflict of interest here. Well, the Biden administration, just like the Obama administration, has a problem with profit. So they've been going after for profit universities. And not holding nonprofits to the same standards. And in many cases, if you look at the outcomes for nonprofit college student graduates, they're just as bad or worse than as the for profit colleges. Colleague of mine at the Texas public policy foundation has proved that in a number of studies. So the conflict for Biden and earlier for Obama was discriminating against profit and the challenge for Corinthian colleges, which no longer exists, is that they did double cross many of their students and give bad information. So those students should be made whole. And the hard question is, should they be made whole by having their whole student debt forgiven for just the part that really was related to fraudulent? Or other bad actor kinds of activities.

Why Student Loan Forgiveness Is a Big Mistake

"So Adam, Joe Biden, I think this is a pledge. I don't know if it's official, but it's a place that he's going to forgive $5.8 billion in student loan debt, owed by about 560,000 borrowers who attend Corinthian colleges, one of the nation's biggest for profit college chain before collapsed in 2015. Can you give the audience a perspective here? Because when I see these numbers, I say, well hey, what's wrong with inherently wrong with forgiving student loans for people who have worked hard, but can you explain, is this an issue or is this a positive thing coming from the Biden administration? Well, the Biden administration knows that it can't forgive student loans, except in some really narrow areas. So it's been looking for some ways to forgive student loans in those narrow areas and still say that they're doing something. So if you worked hard and you paid off your student loan, then you look at the people who are getting loan forgiveness and you're saying, well, I guess I'm a sucker because I paid my loan off and here's somebody else who didn't work. And they haven't paid and they're going to get $10,000 off or maybe they're hold on forgiven. So it's a real problem for people who are the majority who have been working hard and paying off their loans.

However, according to the documents, it took them four minutes from the time of the shooting for them to arrive and pursue him into the classroom where he barricaded himself. Now, if you look at the times, it took a police 9 minutes and it took the police and you already about four minutes to respond after the shooting had started. Now, the reason there's no comparison because you've Aldi is a city of 16,000 people and they probably roughly only had about 7 officers at a time on duty per shift. And that's not a lot of police officers. You compared the Tulsa Oklahoma police officers. They're managing 400,000 people and they have over 700 plus officers who are on their police department. So you're talking about a department. If you look at the Yuval, the unified school district, they have 6 police officers. And you go look at the Tulsa police department.

Was Striker in 'Sands of Iwo Jima' Based on War Hero John Basilone?

"A lot of the discussion about this film, although it doesn't quite add up, is that is the striker in some ways was based on John basilone, but although John basilone was a part of the first marines in Guadalcanal, was awarded the Medal of Honor for his action in defending Anderson field. And then he went back to the states and was put onto basically USO tours. And more bond tours. He was sitting around the country, raised to raise war bonds. And he re upped his enlistment because he had been in the army before and in the Marine Corps. He re upped his enlistment and requested a combat unit and went to Iwo Jima and was killed in battle. So I'm assuming that this is similar, obviously striker doesn't have the Medal of Honor or is noticeable that he's like the super war hero and also they go to they fight in Tarawa and then he would Jima in this film. But I'm assuming it's something like that where they took a veteran NCO squad leader or platoon leader and put them with a new group of men to raise their level up and train them to get them ready for

They're looking at me as if, oh my God, this guy, you know, first of all, I'm a captain into a second lieutenant a captain is God. Well, now I get this award. So they're thinking for sushi or something. All right. And so I was compelled to talk them about it all through my three years and say, listen first, I'm so happy that I'm gratified to get the award. Second, I knew 30 or 40 marine captains off the top of my head that if their name came out on that message traffic saying they had received that award, I would have said, good for him. He represents every single thing that award is supposed to represent as well. And then third, I told them, look, I think I was a very good captain. I think I maybe even better than average. I said, but I want you to listen to me lieutenants. Here's what I think I was really good at to your point earlier. I said, I was excellent, if not among the best at unleashing the power of corporals and sergeants. And so when I told them that I would throw up a graphic, this is the old days where we had slide for that right yet, but the overhead overhead. So I tell the Lamborghini overhead on with a thing and would be a rifle company TO. And I'd say and they have circles. There is the officers. And there's 5 of them. And here's the staff NCOs, and there's maybe 8 of those. I said, so you got 8 officers and a staff. I said, a lot of officers bet on the officers. A lot of officers bet on the officers and staff NCOs. Let me tell you what captain H were learned as a former Corporal sergeant staff sergeant. I bet on don't get me wrong. I wanted the officers and Stanford to pull their weight and they certainly did. But I think that in the PO at the time, it was like 65 or 72. Corporals and sergeants. I said now, these guys right here, if you can get half of those corporals and sergeants, doing what they need to do on their own initiative, bias for action, following your intent. That lieutenant is when the magic happens. And you'll be in a position where you have to hold them back, but you'll never have to kick them and they ask to get them going. And that's a lesson that I learned as a very young NCO, a very young staff sergeant, very young drill instructor. You know, I was a 20 year old drill instructor. And so that's very young. And I was the only non Vietnam vet in my class. And so think about the, there's a chapter in the book, the Marine Corps trusted me. It's about that story. And so think about the trust the Marine Corps had in a 20 year old non combat sergeant. Okay, go to the high school. Let's see what you got. And so they trusted me. They gave me a reputation to live up to. And I like to think I lived up to it. Well, I never forgot about that. I never forgot what it was like to be the Corporal sergeant staff sergeant that had people trust me. And I would have died rather than let them down. And business people, supervisors, managers, department heads, whatever the title is, whatever the rank structure is, they will die to. They'd rather die than embarrass their department. And so you can see, I am already spitting at my screen and all that I love that I'm so passionate about. Because you're hitting it right Richard, it's not the executives. You can have the best team of executives. But if there's an executive level that a VP level, then a director manager, supervisor, team lead, it's the director and below. If you have to get those ladies and gens on fire and point in their weapons in the same direction at the same target, oh, the magic happens. Oh, yeah, unstoppable. Yeah, I love that you're speaking. Music to my ears because I love finding those kind of particularly the corporate arena finding those real influencers. Number one, they don't know whether they're the influencer. And when you give them, I also learn too that not everybody wants that empowerment. I kind of assumed that the whole everybody wanted it. I learned the hard way that not everybody does. But at the same time, I don't have to get everybody to your point. If I can just get enough brand ambassadors and enough hard chargers enough type a's, I made the mistake my earlier on in the corporate arena, I tried to get all my C's and D's and the bees and a's, and that was wasted energy. So then I started focusing all my energy on the a's and B's. And what I found is that the season D is either move themselves out. You know, I just set a level of expectations up here, and if you didn't meet them, you either would force yourself out. They would force themselves out, or they would force themselves up into the bees and a's. I spent too much time trying to. I kind of went against my marine what I learned in the Marine Corps. You know what I mean? And I learned. I saw that in the Marine Corps, right? There was this, you didn't spend a lot of time trying to bring right? I mean, am I saying that right? I mean, if I think back to my Marine Corps, you're so much longer and so much more marine esque being in the infantry side as me being an aviator. But even on the aviation side, it's like to be an aircraft commander so quickly. It's like the expectations they never dumbed it down for me, right? So if you weren't performing, that's what I loved about the Marine Corps, so I was trying to say, if you weren't, these were the expectations, and if you didn't live up to them, I'm sorry. And sometimes people don't like to hear that. I don't know. What are your thoughts on that? Oh, I agree. Now in the Marine Corps, the promotion process is a big filter. So if that's true, that's right. If you have a sergeant or a captain that really does an aspire to work hard and reach the next level, chances are he or she's not going to reach the next level. And so they a trip. If they do reach the next level, they're usually given a chance they don't do well, and then they.

"I went to the doctors, they helped me explore all of that. And we talked about it. And they was like, yeah, I mean, you were pregnant. You had a baby. You are postpartum. You know, even though your baby's not here, you push them out. And I was, I was not early in my pregnancy. So I was at the halfway point. So for me, it was considered a delivery. So that was traumatic. And then being active duty was definitely hard because it's like they are mission driven. They're like, what's wrong with you? You ain't together. You still dwelling on this? Those were things people would say to me, and it's like, yes, yes, I'm still dwelling on this one because a whole two babies have died. In me, inside of me, and I still have to go into labor. So, like, that's not something that I can just kind of go back to after two weeks because that's all the time I got off, but that was the whole thing. And so I make it my business to make sure when I encounter someone who's still active duty or who's a veteran who's transitioning who's had that type of traumatic event happen. Make sure I allow them to space to talk about it. And if they want to cry, they can cry, you know? Because things like that, you really don't get enough time in the military to grieve. You really don't get enough time to process. Because you have to go back to work. You have to put on the strong face to make sure that the troops are taken care of. It's just life. I mean, it doesn't make it right. Don't mean it's great, but it's just what we have to do. Yeah, and the military is like mission focus. So once you get your two weeks and then it's like, all right, back to business and you're like, I'm not done processing this..

"Humvees, 7 tons or anything else. Let's talk about open contract because I think it's a really good point. And a lot of my listeners are women who are looking to join the military. So you join the Marine Corps and you said, at the end of boot camp, I'll do whatever you guys want me to do, essentially, right? Yes, but I didn't want to say that. Right, 'cause you didn't know. You didn't say that. That's just what not signing anything. That's what the brewing for her, you say, but you didn't know that you had the so crazy you didn't know that your recruiter didn't set you up for success. He didn't really set me up for failure either. He did help me because I was like, I gotta get out of here. So he gave me exactly what I wanted. But, you know, it's just like, okay, I'm learning, even in my young age at 18 to be very specific about what I want. Okay, I want to get out of here and then I want a job doing a swag and see. Didn't know what I wanted a job man because I'm pretty sure had I got the job and something close to what I'm doing now. I would have to be an officer and I would probably not be a marine because marines don't have like counselors as an MOS. I mean, if you were to tell me, I could have did legal, I would have been like, okay, I can go to school, you know, and I'll do legal or whatever. Apparently, even, which is really what legal clips are. And I did do that for a little while, so I was motivated, but I ended up in the admin shop, which I don't even know how I ended up there. I guess they just needed somebody to sell my name and was like, oh, let's pick her. So I was in there. I did that was a mailroom clerk. I was an admin clerk. I was a legal clerk. And I was like, this is too much. It's a lot. And as a legal clerk, you definitely see some crazy stuff that you would see in the legal field. And I was like, you know, I don't want to do that. What I want to be a lawyer? Absolutely. But some of those cases, some of those things is just like, I don't know how y'all make it without going to therapy. I don't have no idea. So, but I did a whole bunch of jobs. I was mams clerk, which is people who are ordering the parts for supply and motor tea, you know, and different different other MOS. And then I was supply admin for a while, which is the admin part of supply. So there's warehouse where you do an inventory second shells and all that then is the administrative people. And I did that. So my actual job was motor tea in my first four years, but I later lapped me. So after I was in motor T and I was like, so I'm either going to get out or I'm going to stay in. I thought I was going to get out. But my career planner definitely convinced me to stay in. And I was like, okay, so I laughed and I ended up being dispersing, which is finance, a finance technician in the Marine Corps. And because it's two sides of that, once a comptroller, where they deal with stuff for the Marine Corps, and then us people who deal with pay for troops. And it wasn't always marines. So if there was air force army, anybody attached to us, we dealt with their paycheck and dual military couples..

"And what we can get out of something. And it can it can come off a little selfish, but he's talked to me about what I can give it things. I can implement things I could change. And I was just like, wow, that sounds great. Now I didn't do any of it. Really. But I feel like I didn't do any of it. I know I was a part of the whole process of the hair changes for the Marine Corps. So I am proud of that. But I wasn't the lead on that. I just helped a friend who was the lead on that. So I'm very proud and very thankful of that. But that was literally right before I was getting out, which I tried to look back and see if I did anything. And then there was that. And I did do a lot of things that I was able to fulfill a lot of goals of living overseas, you know, and doing martial arts, which I probably want to do in martial arts just being a college student, probably wouldn't have even been interested. You know, I did CrossFit. I did a lot of stuff, so I had a lot of opportunities. Obviously, I made rank. So I wasn't like the same rank throughout the entire almost 8 years. I was in. And I was able to have several different jobs. Some of the jobs I didn't want because you know it's the meats and the military. I feel like I was able to give a lot but because he did talk to me about how I can help other troops, which I know I did. And that's kind of why I'm doing the job that I'm doing now is because it's like the mission continues. And I say he was able to help me take my self centeredness out of it and say, this is how you can help troops. This is how you can help the institution as a whole. So you really like the idea of being able to help other people. And that's what drew you to the military, and that's true to what you're doing today..

"Show Teresa. I'm so excited to have you here. Thank you. Thank you for having me. So let's start with why did you decide to join the military? Wow, okay, so just growing up, I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. It wasn't the best of situations, so I was like, in the back of my mind thinking, I got to get out of here. I have to add, I don't know how I'm going to get out of here, but I have to get out of here. So I applied to, you know, several colleges and I got accepted. There was one in D.C. that I really wanted to go to. I really wanted to go to Howard and my family wanted me to be close, and I'm like, no. I have to get out of here. And it just so happened that there was a marine recruiter walking in the hallways one day, and he had on dress blues, and I was like, what kind of uniform is that? 'cause I was in army Gerald TC, so I knew what there uniforms looked like, had never really looked into any other branch thought I was going to go to the army. And I knew I was going to go somewhere to get up out of Birmingham, Alabama, but that uniform took me by surprise..

"And that launched a very long meeting. But also what i would describe as at least from the department of the navy Beginning of the planning of the war. And it's there's a lot to that which i won't go into but essentially it's where are people who are casualties. Look like that's fine. We have to take a toll now. Where are people out in the field who we have is available that can steam to place. Go to that sort of thing. Yeah well let me just step in here. For a second. And turn back to thomas brennan because thomas in your reporting you also tell a story of another thing that happened on that september twelfth the day after nine eleven and it and it has to do with the marine corps flag. Who just got about a minute and a half before. I break here thomas but could you tell us that story briefly an end as a former marine yourself why. That moment is particularly important. In terms of what happened on september twelfth after the building collapsed where mr holmes office was. There was a marine corps flag. That was still standing and what. We're really speaks to me about that moment. Was that a civilian. Who volunteered of when he witnessed the klein strike and an army soldier were the ones who rescued a marine corps flag. It wasn't about service rivalry. They just recognize that it was military flag was about the fall into the fire and they saw the symbolism and that so those gentlemen and whoever else helped them rescued that flag and it began its own journey to outer space and ultimately the marine corps. Museum in quantico. Well mr we've got thirty seconds before the break before we move forward in terms of what you witnessed an an and how marine corps changed over the next twenty years. I just want you to you. Were injured on that day on nine eleven. So i mean can you describe a couple seconds of how you coped on nine. Twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen the next week or so the the summary is not. Well you know had had a brain injury and eardrums blown out. I was completely deafened on one side and that remains to this day and significant hair house on it. But but that's just one of those things you buckley chinstrap because it's common and that's what we did on september twelfth. Well today. we're talking with robert. Hogue and thomas brennan.

"On point. I'm meghna chakrabarti dominating. The picture is there's this weird rolling cloud up the face of the stone and that is that's exactly what it is. It's it's the blast. It's the flame from the blast and it rolled up the front of at least for my vans rolled up the front of the building like like a dryer tumbling. You know and i was just a very peculiar thing. It's not yet in color for me. But as i'm looking at it. I start to become aware of colors. Black and orange again my systems coming back online a little bit. At a time. I start to pick myself up and then it's the office now starting to break apart cutting half on september eleventh two thousand one robert hogue was celebrating his first anniversary as a senior executive service employees for the united states military members of the work in key positions just below top presidential appointees hogue was in his office at the pentagon. That office was just above. Where american airlines flight. Seventy seven struck the massive building on nine eleven hogan three office mates were trapped in the partially collapsed building corp. tim garafolo managed to wrench open the door to the hallway and they all squeezed through hogue heard someone through the smoke. A voice saying there was a way out but also that there were at least six offices between their position and the way out with people possibly still inside. We can't just run every part of my body and mind screaming run. You know because if just fire it's a collapse it's a shooting gallery but somewhere inside you just know you if you don't look inside those offices and see if there's anybody survived in there it'd be very tough to live with yourself. Hugs officemate corp. Garafolo ran in and saved at least two lives people that were still trapped. Everyone piled into hugs car and he drove away. Smoke in the rear view mirror hogan eventually got home hugged his wife and daughter and saw his son just twelve years old at the time. His son was stunned. And that is when reality set in twenty years later. Robert hogue told that story that recorded interview. You just heard to thomas. Brennan a marine corps veteran himself and an award winning journalist. Thomas is the founder of the warhorse which covers the human impact of military service and he joins us now. Thomas welcome to on point. Thank you for having me. And we have Thomas is complete reporting on the story of robert hogue linked to it at our website on point radio dot org But right now. Robert hogue joins us as well because he continued serving at one of the highest civilian levels of the united states marine corps and he just wrapped up a seventeen year stint as counsel for the commandant of the us marines and during that time he seen the core through some of its most radical changes. Not just the post nine eleven period not just afghanistan and iraq but internal changes to the core itself regarding who gets to serve and fight on behalf of the nation and he's here to share that twenty year arc with us today and joins us from that very same office. He was in in the pentagon on nine eleven. Robert hogue welcome to you. Thank you for having me. I actually want to start with thomas. If i could for a moment. What is it about. Robert hogan his story that you felt was particularly important for the nation to hear right now twenty years after nine eleven. I think that his service His continue calling the serve after nine. Eleven on behalf of our country is is something that is just always stunning and far too often the civil servants that serve alongside servicemembers In the defense department. Go unrecognized And you know one thing that's just been incredible for me to be able to see both marine and as a journalist is is how the marine corps embraced a a civilian mike him was completely unexpected of based on my experiences of marine and he's emblematic of countless other civil servants that do incredible on behalf of our country every day and a story. Like you said. That's not told often enough so mr hug. Let me turn to you first of all. Thank you for being a in that same office today to talk with us. I know it can't be easy even two decades later. What's it like to to be in there Strange actually. I really can't describe in the one thing about it is it does kind of hold you or at least one part of you in that time period. So it's you're stuck in a moment in two thousand one regardless of what year day it is but also you have to recognize. It's a news legal office and there is this your everyday and they you know there's a good staff and a lot of work to do and whatever else holds me back to two thousand one. We have definitely forged ahead. Well obviously that day was absolutely horrific. We don't actually need to go over the details of more than we already have. So instead mr hogue. I'd like to ask you. You went back to work the next day on september twelfth. What happened that day. September twelfth is to me a much more interesting topic than september. eleventh september. eleventh is is really kind of a loss time experience a catastrophe and all the craziness that surrounds an event of that magnitude. And you really for a while. When you're in the middle of that you're just a consumer of information trying to react trying to save your life trying to save others and do the best you can. September twelfth is is more about about getting it together figuring out how to respond organizing the response and thinking through the problem of okay. Here we are. That happened here. We are how we start to step forward and for me. September twelfth starts out with a very early morning drive to the pentagon. I received night the call the night before. A call from the marine corps operations center essentially telling me to to come to the pentagon for six. Am meeting with common on. There was no place to go really mean my offices in the pit where the fire was an pointed still burning. The senior staff met outside that the the impact area and we made the decision. I say we I'm a senior civilian on the comment on staff. You don't where the common goes. That's where i go comment on me decision. We're going to go up the hill to the navy annex where the marine corps had offices and frankly were headquarters marine corps had for many years actually been It only move down of the pentagon i think in nineteen ninety six so are a lot of history up there from marine corps at a lot of things about the navy annex actually reflect the marine corps very well old crappy building leaky windows and bad plumbing. So that's the place we went and about want to say about seventy. Am when once we had moved their intended to the a six am meeting but it just because of the movement of people on such a gathering of staff. We all packed into a conference room. There in the annex very large conference room packed the doors with Senior military and civilians are waiting for the common app. Come in and we have been told that the cnn it'd be there as well so a lot of navy presence. There in the navy had been hit directly on september eleventh plane. The navy operation center was on the first floor and they take direct directed and we knew that they were going to be some bad numbers When reporting came in. I had not seen it. I don't think anybody had any idea with real numbers were but we knew it was bad so seven. Am that's hanging in the air The expectation of bad news and the bad news now. So now am the chief of naval operations. The cnn and accommodate come into the room and it has the sort of gathering storm called into it. I mean you can just feel it and the walks to the head of the table and you more or less hammers folio in into the table and says i wanna know. Who did this. Know what we're gonna do about it..

"A local authorities that they were already in contact with because they were doing work here and said okay. Where do we go. Who can wayne. Who can we reach out to do. You know who's been hardest hit and it's the have been able to have those immediate conversations is what is going to put you on the right path to getting help to people maybe specialized expertise is needed. Certainly specialized equipment specialized search and rescue teams in those first early days and then in this stage of the response organizations like mercy corps having Having a way to procured bring in large amounts of supplies or being able to bring in additional experts but it all starts and needs to be continued to be led by the knowledge of the community. That's been affected. I think it's really encouraging to hear that there has been that volition. It's heartbreaking the that wasn't addressed back in twenty ten but the progress actually leaves me feeling a little bit more encouraged and and you spoke to this idea of of the beauty of of neighbors helping neighbors and people showing up and leading these locally led efforts and i'm curious where are you seeing signs of hope on the ground like what are the moments that are leaving. You feeling hopeful. In spite of the absolutely heartbreaking situation so i would say that the first the first nineteen sources of hope for me our team members. My colleagues are here. Seven in the until you know wheat way into the night People are working incredibly long hours and with the just tremendous levels of energy tremendous levels dedication. People are so solution oriented. So kind of thinking about Are this is the problem. Here's like three different ways. We could approach this problem. In addition the this neighbor-to-neighbor outreach. It is across the country of haiti. Of course the earthquake was felt importer. Prints that this earthquake did not affect order prints. It affected this rural area in the south and so we have people port-au-prince who are sending donations sending supplies family members are are reaching out to help family members and i think it's really important for people to know even down one. St not every houses affected equally. Earthquake is so random. It's so callous. In that way know one house night just crash another house may be levelled and so having having not community come together and having people support each other it is a huge sign of hope because those those helpers those like mr rogers helpers that you wanna look to. They're right next to you there beside you there. You and so. That's really inspiring. That's really inspiring. I love this and then tell me about like what bercy cores role is right. Now i know that you are focused in on the particular things that mercy chorus skilled at. What is that look like right now in. How might that change in the coming days and weeks and emergency response and i've been doing this for seven and a half year so some knowledge on not the most knowledgeable. But i've been doing it for a while and it. It really resembles like a very elaborate Dance or lake chessboard. Everybody has different roles that they can play So for example. We don't do medical doctors without borders says medical and like we work right alongside them when we share information. That may say like okay. What are you seeing here. What is we do sometimes water sanitation hygiene and they say look people are going to be healthier and we can control disease with better water sanitation gene. So it's this. It's this continuous partnership even before right so even before we had kind of people extra people coming in on the ground even before the earthquake after the two thousand ten earthquake we set up mercy corps. Set up an sms early warning system so anytime there's a hurricane on its way we are able to text message people and say we have a for people who don't have cell phones. There's a person in the community has a phone was assigned to spread the word. So we'll be texting out that network. They can go sailing. Repeat a very serious storm is on the way. Usually you need to do so immediately. Following the earthquake we activated that system.

They had us in the first half not going to lie. But this is big. In fact the word mafikeng becomes a verb meaning to have a wild half wild parties. Oh because the british public says oh.

Survival guide called aids to scouting and of course scouting still does not mean a global youth movement scouting still means performing reconnaissance on possibly dangerous terrain in wartime so. There's no youth component at this point. He's not borrowing from c. Soul and his co. and his core he's just he's just write a book for non fellow on commission for like nco's guide to being a bad boy. This is how you're cool like me. And now that he's now it's cool like me. Hero of the boer war hero of the siege of heroic siege of mafikeng. Which again he brought about with his own other lack of military strategy. Did he think that this would be a military handbook. That was taught at sandhurst. Exact is that's the idea like officers are going to need to know all my all my lifetime of of living off the land you know. He's not wrong back then. If you were in that job you would have to know all these what we think of as camping lighting fire. And some foraging and first aid and how to cook a donkey right cooking your cooking. The townspeople donkeys. Even though they're kind of mad and hungry at you be hungry hungry lamb so hungry you but in one thousand nine hundred as you have predicted this is about to become a children's book Kids love this. That turns out to be the because he's a hero. It becomes basically celebrity culture. It's like oprah's book club right in in the early twentieth century. like boy. If bayden powell thinks you know these are the skills a man should have. We're going to check this out and presumably. He didn't use any swears. Our there wasn't any like how to pick up chicks. No i mean the the kind of the you know all of the Doing my doing my best to do my duty to god and my country to help other people in to obey the scout law that all comes straight from the The upright nineteenth century military origins of scouting gap. I'm sure he would have hated to hear swearing in the ranks or anybody saying anything on toward about jones's mother who's ready to march up and down the square in thousand eight when he realizes who's actually reading this book. He puts out a second edition which he calls scouting for boys. Because because i don't know if any military people read the book the it it became a huge success just on the basis of boys loping as wilderness reconnaissance expert which is really how scouting started. That's how scouting tau recon work. It should be called boy harping of america not boy scout all those snipers or whatever all they all. They are slightly older boys. Like pretend sniping like how do you get into sniping. Oh you start something. Gonyea start with the stick and move to be begun when the book becomes a children's book. He has an intro. That's more child friendly. And that means dredging. His memory interactions with the mafeking cadet corps and so the book includes because he's he's got to leverage his his greatest hits basically member member eight years ago when i was the hero of mafikeng so he tells a story about seeing a messenger. Boy come up on his bike and sing young lad. Look the look the dutch artillery. Don't you and he says they won't hit me. I'll pedal too fast in and so it's a little. It's a little fun story about the the the can do spirit of the blitz in mafikeng. And did he tip to see sel at this point to see ever get written into the record or is this happening now. I think only to the only in the historical record because mafikeng at this point becomes in one thousand nine hundred eight. This book comes out becomes a huge seller bayden. Pulse publisher sends him on a book tour and everywhere he goes. He speaks too eager audiences voice. You the second he leaves town start up their own Bayden powell troop right. They want to be a cadet given the three fingered salute and then he's like the pied piper of scouting and so it's not top down. He never says. I'm going to charter an organization. Like just boys clubs out at the quarry or the ponder river. They hang out naked using the book. Guy they've got a guide now and they start their own patrols adults. Maybe are annoyed to have the boys. Think they're patrolling like the wolverines in red dawn but maybe just keeps them out of trouble in the summer absolutely and the cadet corps cadet corps wore the khaki uniforms and the either the broadbrimmed hat or the glengarry It's a uniform fit for africa. Which is why it's so funny. When you see people wearing an norman rockwell paintings in maine. Yeah it's a knee high sock nice. It's just such a crazy uniform but it dates back to mafikeng because they impels now appropriating his own passed to try to sell this thing and in fact the year before the book comes out. He's tested all these these principles and in one thousand nine seven. He's hand. penn picked twenty two boys that he thinks represent the future of the empire and again. so again. if you're fifty year old man you should really shouldn't be handpicking. Twenty two year old boys and we see this come up in scouting time and again and presumably. It's an incredibly diverse group of boys from all around the empire. No like he wouldn't even get a kid from yorkshire because harris dark. I'll steal. He takes them all to an island again. If you're a middle aged man taking twenty two boys do not take them to an island. Lead them to brown sea island off of dorset. Why think we're he used to vacation as a kid and he spends a couple weeks teaching the the six six following things camping observation woodcraft chivalry lifesaving and patriotism. Only my dream.

"So my cohort was made up of a bow thirty volunteers, and then we also had the cohort that was there before me which was again about thirty or so volunteers, and then additionally There is opportunity to stay on for a third year of volunteer service or to stay on for a third year as volunteer leader So I I believe that the total amount of volunteers Jamaica when I was there was about like seventy five. Okay and. and. Talk to me a little bit about what you know. A about sort of the rest of the Caribbean in the case of Germany Jamaica is in the Caribbean it makes me wonder. You know our our folks in Saint Kitts and in Granada, Grenada and. Other. Other part other countries there as well or is Jamaica kind of a regional hub they send folks out from there. How's that work? Yeah. So the Caribbean region. So there's legions where Peace Corps Service and in the Caribbean there is on the Dominican Republic Than Jamaica and then the eastern Caribbean. Includes on Saint, Lucia. J let me ask you if I could. Maybe, I'll put this question to to Travis in the WHO's with the FI score prep program vm. If somebody is a high school senior right now and saying, okay, I'm planning to go into the year you remind. Next year and I would like to. Would like to Jointly. Joined the Peace Corps before I'm. Much older, whatever may come out of my undergraduate work and get ready for. Some kind of a Inter Inter period between the between the workaday life. My college studies or whatever. What's they be thinking about her? How were they were? They plan their vm academic career in order the best prepare themselves for peace. Corps Service get absolutely thanks for asking the.

"Someone without a whole lot of monetary resources could access a really supportive infrastructure and get that international development work experience and then be kind of on a path towards working for the UN or working for the World Bank or something like. that. and. The Peace Corps definitely provides that supportive infrastructure like like Mary. Mentioned it's it's no small thing to be able to evacuate thousands of young people. And make that happen and happen quickly and safely, and there were countries in the early two thousand and that were evacuated as well for a variety of reasons. But It also was very much an experience that. Made. Clear to me how much. small-scale farmers. Everywhere have in common. In terms of working with very limited resources often working with not supportive. Policy Environments often working with these huge economic forces. That are not in their favor and it was really that kind of experience that put me on the. Track of getting graduate degrees in community development and applied economics or and then a PhD in public policy management and and really focusing on the role of. Government and the rules and policies that we make in helping or hindering the ability of small-scale farmer speeding in Fremont or in sub Saharan Africa to do. And I'm curious to know did you speak fluent French before you went went over there? Was a French major as an Undergrad and in my in my community, there were probably. Four people who spoke French. French. Is the national language but. The language of businesses wall and the language. Of. My community was was poular. And what about? Do you have any training and fool arbuckle you've got to wear. The community. Yeah. So like Mary mentioned, it's a, it's a twenty seven months service appointment because there's a a three month training and a two year service commitment and that three months of training actually is mostly in country, and so you're taking a language courses and you're taking. A cultural awareness and interaction courses. You're taking safety courses and health courses really on a very full-time basis for that three month period. I had a crash course in polar, and then a lot of learn as you go experience. Yeah what what are some of the? Marielle put this question to you what are some of the health and physical requirements for peace, Corps volunteers I know that There are some limitations that way right. Yeah, you know part of the application processes going through a pretty lengthy, an intense medical background checks mom. I don't know if I can necessarily speak to the requirements because it's pretty personal and a lot of volunteers with pre existing conditions are able to serve There's no checklist of physical attributes you have to have in order to be a volunteer but they do want to ensure you know that volunteers are. Healthy and are aware of the resources they need in order to remain healthy and services, and ensure that the Peace Corps headquarters of that country is prepared to offer the necessary. For volunteers. And Mary how many? How many peace? Corps volunteers were there in Jamaica when you were there. That's a great question..

"Voices to have a more impactful. Programming within communities. And when when you went to Jamaica, did you Sort of move into an office or something that had been vacated by previous Peace Corps. Volunteer. Well. That's a good question. So I was actually the first volunteer to serve in the community where I served in the Blue Mountains. The community has cascade So I was the first volunteer of Peace Corps that they'd had and over twenty five years and. I didn't have an office I lived with the host family and my main goal was again integrating in the into the community building relationships, building offensive trust and the foundation that volunteers after me could be able to build upon and have a more impactful service by that. Feature Trust and relationships. Drove talk a little bit about Your Peace Corps experience and and. Especially, now, where where did where did you go into? and. What kind work were you doing when you got there? Yeah no I really appreciate the opportunity to think back on this. So like Mary I was the. First onto year in my. Community it was in eastern Senegal sounded alright. Okay. Bench Africa French speaking. It was a cooler community for any pool, our speakers speakers out there. Him And? The. Focus of my work was on agroforestry. So integrating trees into. Agricultural Production. Mentioned that and. And you. You come out of the Peace Corps and now you find yourself in academia. was that a straight path or whether some intervening intervening years in intervening work there. Not. A straight path. And not. Really the original goal. So I'm from the Northeast Kingdom of per month and had some extended family involved in. Work in sub Saharan Africa that no previous peace. Corps volunteers. And was really interested in international development as an undergraduate student as a young person and sort of saw the peace corps as a way that..

"Wgn. We are back and got three guests online this morning talking about the. Peace Corps in the role of Vermont Hers and Particularly People who've affiliated with the University of Vermont. With that or that federally backed organization that sends people all over the world to help provide. Assistance in. Training and guide. Other forms against do Folks in developing countries and We have lackey WHO's UVM graduate student and. Is A peacecorps returning. You didn't mean to be back so soon but. Got Pulled out of Jamaica back last March at the start of the coronavirus crisis in unfortunately looks like all seven thousand Peace Corps volunteers around the world war brought home. After, the after the band damage sort of settled in a settled down or whatever did descended on maybe that's the best way to describe it the the world and. We also have with US Travis Reynolds, who's an assistant professor in the Department of community. Development of blind economics and. He's Peace Corps program coordinator meaning they're getting young folks ready to go in volunteer with the Peace Corps and when he's working with those young folks, he knows what he's talking about his he is a return to Peace Corps volunteer as well and Jane Kalinski professor and chair of the Department the Department won't give. The word he title and three times earlier. and. She joins us as well to talk about the overall approach and Jane actually. Curious how did your department? Sort, of stepped to the fore here in Vermont and become sort of a hub of Peace Corps connectedness. I love that question. So these are peace corps recruiter I have to do some real sleuthing what goes back all the way to nineteen eighty six. That's when we had the first contract and that was in a department of Agricultural Economics and there was an international development major, and here we are all these years later and we still have a community in international development major in our department and that was the start of the Peace Corps recruiter. The Coverdale Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Graduate Program is is New and our newest program is the Peace Corps program it. All just seems to fit with on mission vision and the way that we look at community development not only locally but globally. And The coverdell program when when people come back from from from Peace Corps, service and they are. These are folks who come back to back to you and for Graduate School Right. That's correct. They there could become a coverdell program when cup when we applied for coverdell specifically wanted programs in in leadership and an agriculture, and so ours was a really good fit with that program and then the students do get six credits that they they can take for at no cost in that program and they actually. Right up or of. Membranes or an analysis of their time in the peace, corps? And how it fits into their degree, and that degree is either an MS in community development or a master of public administration. Six graduate of the University of Vermont. That's a nice. A nice thing to get for free. What do you actually need to get the masters in Masters degree programs you were just describing? How many credits? Air Both Yep. Headed our program. Okay. So you're six the way. Here's your six of the way and you know what? You also have a code word and of of professionals and peers that have this the same mission vision that you do and impact our peace corps. Volunteers come back. Our recruiters come back into. So many different things..

"You know it was pretty dramatic but I think it's a great testament to peace corps ability to mobilize and. protect volunteers in communities abroad. And That is obviously something that you want to. have in mind case in case things get difficult while you're out on on Simon in far flung places around the world is the Peace Corps has that ability to bring you back home if need be and obviously that's not the ideal but occasionally I gather over the years has had to had to happen. Is that right? Yeah. Well, it's actually the first time that all volunteers have been evacuated at one time. Yeah while. The first time I've heard about this that just you know once again, this is another. Another giant. Blow essentially delivered by this pandemic that That you know the world is has gotten weird for so many people. Is there though normally the Peace Corps assignment is a years alright Mary. Actually, a twenty seven month commitment. So okay, three months are training and then the following twenty four months you're sworn in as a volunteer, you are assigned to the community that will welcome you and then you spend those two years at that can put that community. I see. Okay and. So you're. You're how? How far into the program or how many months did you have left of those I gather twenty four of the actual foreign assignment. A full year left so. I think the. It was traumatic for me. Yes to leave but I think it's also very traumatic for the communities. That Peace Corps was involved with to have those volunteers and support systems. leaving, but they are hopeful and having returned. volunteers back to the field hopefully by next summer. So mid twenty, twenty, one but nothing is certain yet just because of the covid crisis. Now here's another. wrinkle to this thing, which is that. Obviously. You know a year ago if I talked to, you would have maybe told me about this..
