Actually hope their own selves up to a transfusion gave the casualty, but I mean there's been a couple of the significant developments by Maddox. Right the. I. Forget one I'm going to murder the name, but it was a seal medic that created that. Wasn't like something for sucking chest wound. It was some type of vows, Ascherman or For that for a Nemeth or act so sad, congestion it just as a one way valve when you breathe, and the air doesn't scoop back out again, and so it allows the luxury inflate when otherwise it would have collapsed nothing you can do about it.

Sixty helicopter. Before when you put a casualty on the floor, now birds fall. He said wait a minute. We gotta be able to handle more than one casually at a time, so medics are always coming up with a better way when you give them permission to be. To be good. They get right I. Mean you should a couple of great stories with his last time, but you have any any other stories that Kinda standout at the time in the unit. And how long have you? How long have you serve it in the vote? For for just under four years, and during that time, my services were called for many many times, and it always started with A. ill down was the code. We are one of those down and we were talking about. People that are close to you. That had yet problems. Allow Al, tell you that. Woman I more interesting stories was a forty three year old freefall parachutist, doing routine parachuting in in in our local area. And when as you know when you're parachute?

Anybody at opening shock, but he flew is shoot in which should have been a nice soft landing right there on the xrays supposed to the medic was standing by, and he kind of collapsed instead of doing a soft stand up medic over and said what's up and he'll. Walk you know opening shocker feel pain in my hip and they just landed and I feel it again. He goes well. Let's get you get any able to run you off to the clinic. DHAKAL SIA any goes down on allowed. How come on I'm fine I'm look I'm standing up a walk in them. Fine so against the medics better judgment he's. He's I promise I'll go to shoot. Shake out and. Go to the clinic, so he lets him go back with the regular with jobbers. Does this you check out comes over to my clinic at five. o'clock bad stuff always happens in a doctor's ops at five o'clock. Ellipse Santa, I do as exam laying down and it feels like he's got a broken hip because the bones crunch when push on. What I made the mistake of standing up to do as x Ray, and because we have nasal, stand up, actually right there take the picture I look at it. There's no sign of a fracture on his up. So I go well I. don't Care I. don't see the fracture I'm gonNA. Send you emerge from anyway. He talks me out of it. He goes no, no, no I promised a back in the morning. Look, it's after hours. I gotta go. You GotTa go, and I want all right. Here's what happened. I'll let my medic drive you home and my medical pick you up in the morning and bring it back, but you're going to go with. Morning goes fine so about fifteen minutes later as a budget. The myself UNREIN's medicos. He's debt doc. He's all around here. He's dead. Crap I know exactly what happened.

And as we're talking I, hear the ambulance irons in the background like all right, so so just stay with him steady. Let them know we're pretty sure. Broke his hip. He's bleeding internally. They got him hospital insurance exactly what had happened when they were hip comes together as a to the pubic bone touches. When you break your hip, you can't break one place you. You have to break into because it's a circle so Bam. It pulled the pubic apart when it fractured the right side of his pelvis, and that tears the artery that lives behind that, and it was pumping you full of blood this whole time, and by the time they got hospital, he had a basketball sized blood clot, Alvis they gave him blood. They resuscitated him. He lived God. Bless him, and actually did not need surgery. The surgeon said. That the pelvic area is self contained. So when it filled up the basketball size of blood it tampere nodded, itself often clotted off. Okay long story short. Six weeks later the guys all better feeling great back at work, same medic season in the field, doing a a demolition work and he's really Pale looking the you okay. Okay just little week.

It's a recent phenomenon. It's made from the hemp plant, not the marijuana plant. And Some of the products that are out there have a zero point zero five percent THC in it over people that have to do drug tests. Don't buy that particular one because it actually can shop on a drug test, even though it's physically inactive, but a I'm a big fan of that works very very well for the right conditions that come from force over usage, traumatic events such as. Skiing and of jumping out of airplanes. Reminds me of two other quick orthopedic stories were run that fame. One ill down call was when one of the operators during training was doing close quarters, combat training, and he grabbed a flashbang off the back of of the guy in front of them. They're going in shoulder. Hand on shoulders goes Flashbang to throw at.

"Military mirrors straight. Talk with the guys in the community. Welcome back to Stanford Radio we have her to Bob Atoms Colonel Bob Adams MD MBA eighteen years in the navy twelve as a seal eighteen years in the army. Author of multiple books six days of impossible. is websites seal L. Week, dot com, and what's the second book Bob swords and Saint Doctor's journey and that's at swords and saints, Dot Com. That's the book that looks back at Thirty five years of Medicine Army and civilian peace an war, so if you haven't had a chance to catch the first interview, we got into in the background at some connectivity issues on my art I wanted to Bob back to have a deeper conversation. Get into some of the. Some of the stories. It's always. Interesting in the seal community just to see. Were guys go in the past they take. You know for instance. We know this. My platoon commander in Afghanistan is Chris Cassidy. Who is orbiting Earth right now on the on the International Space Station and was the second seal, astronaut and then Johnny. Kim Was a sniper student of mine. Johnny went on to Harvard. Medical School and then became the third navy seal astronaut, so how pretty wild. Some of US are some underachievers. Newark with the admiral, mcraven and Hargrave and some really good leaders in your young years. It became great leaders in their older years. Yeah, I mean I. I was fortunate. Enough to come into that that kind of same environment. You did post Vietnam guys. We still had a couple of those guys around half ass. McCarthy was in our seal team three training training sell. Just some characters, so it was a good times for sure. I WANNA get into stopping error. The par were you're in the army? As a doctor got approach by the force, guys I want to practice medicine and come back in two years which they did. And then you did a tour and for forest, but I love to kind of recap down, and may beginning to some some stories, you can share sure absolutely man. It was somewhat unique to show at at. An army post in an army uniform, wearing a navy seal patch on my left breast, and so we're get out fast. There's a doctor rang Ronald the navy seal batch on him and I hadn't been there long when they knocked on the door and said come play with us and I, had no idea who they were aware they were very very. Appropriately classified unit but I honestly told him I said you know guys I think I know who you're talking about. I, think I. Know who you are, but not now on the night when I said come back in two years, and they did you know now does point my career of delivered a lot. More babies seen a lot more patients as a family. And so I. Had the babies take care of the kids. Watch him grow up. Learn how the army works. which was a big deal for me because you know. Eighteen years in the navy announced on in the army. There's a translation period that has to happen. So I learned that the army had trains, not heads and walls, not bulkheads, and now's getting a little bit better at so I assure now it'd be a good time and. They are brought me in and made me that command surgeon for the army's Delta. Force, which is not a surgical position as you know in the military, a military doctors are their positions are called command surgeon that goes away back to the civil war days as command surgeon. A PA the work for me in another doctor that works for me and a bunch of eighteen, the medics which are the top of the cream of the crop, the best trained maddox in the military either navy seal guy has sent him to eighteen Delta Medical Corps six months of real hard training so I just I just had a superstar staff working with me and for me the story I like to tell that coming in to the unit was deputy commander, who later went on to be a wonderful major general. Close friend of mine pulled me into his office. They said pay attention. Chief Staff here and the only job I had done on my staff is yours and can do. It can't can't learn how to do it, so here's how things were. In Vienna, we have unlimited resources. You may spend whatever you want to accomplish the mission I'm about to give you and if you ask for, it will give it to you because I. can't argue with you I went. Okay, this girl, what do you want me to do is I want to take care of my soldiers? Don't take care of their families and I want to do it better than anybody in the United States army. Guys are I can do that and he stayed. For two years, I spent more money than any doctor I've ever heard of in building up a much better clinics system remote system deployment system for the medics training system for both the the unit members and my medics. Is what would worked out really really well. A number of interesting things happen. We can touch on those if you're on. Your Club, too. I mean it's it's great to hear and cheer. Point on just the training. Not Army has with the eighteen delta course I had lost. My best friend had been Ghazi Glen Doherty Glenn was amazing. Just one of those guys that everyone loved he was a Cormon. It's funny in the seal team. You have the Cormon that you just don't WanNa see. Is there like there's no bedside manner in the ones that you're like oh? This guy is gonNA. Really Take Me Glen. was that kind of guy and In just an incredible loved what he did passionate about it, but just I. Remember Going on a surfing trip with some friends and this Guy Sohaib crashy. Who is one of the top neurosurgeons in southern? California went on this trip with us and wanted guys. We're surfing at my dad's house and Kabo. One of the guys went. Over the falls in, gotten paled on this rock. He was kind of a novice surfer in punched a hole in his back in literally checked his spine. Thank God. He didn't have any issues, but I mean. You're you're worth a navy seal combat medic. Eighteen Delta long were train in a neurosurgeon on surf trips, so it's like if you're ever going to do that, you're pretty good hands, but they literally operated on. This guy got the ship out. In everything I remember by so hey, my friend was like he was like damn like you are really good like. He wanted to hire him as a PA and then ended up by Glen. Unfortunately, he was one of the the two seals died in Benghazi incident. But I guess my point is even the mat like the eighteen delta train. Medics are I feel like I'm in better hands with them than most kind of civilian train doctors that I've been to now that I've been out out of the military for some time now. I absolutely agree with you. When one of the comments that I make in my in my swords Saints Book is when I deployed to the Iraq second airborne division we arrive in Kuwait, and we had to take this long road journey from quite into bad guy country. Country in Iraq and I only had me into other doctors and I looked at the commander, and I said look. I'm flying myself from the two doctors ahead Iraq. You Guys GonNA drive through bad guy, country and bath. Things are gonNA could happen. They didn't luckily anywhere. Willy. Why are you taking the box and I said because the medics know that their job better than my doctors, though it better than I know it, their airway breathing circulation, and I need to be set up and ready to receive you. Should something bad happening? Really I said really trust me on this. When the medics do their job better than your doctors do their jobs. And he, he stayed with me on that and and good things came out because we. Sent people out on missions that were did happen in the medics performed tomorrow Leslie. And a related story, one of the interesting achievements that we as as as expanded and more capable medical system did for Delta was one of my senior Maddox came to me. Is that you know? I got a concern we've got. Three operational units here in Delta, and we only have a couple. Medics assigned each one. We don't both go on every mission. What if one of US gets hurt? Will Be. Bravados these I propose that we train the operators in airway breathing circulation. We get him ready to handle me if I'm a casualty and we immediately implement a brilliant idea, commander approved put money behind it. We trained everybody. IV's turn cats advanced medical care and at two years after left the unit, a six hundred pound bomb dropped in Afghanistan on friendly forces, and unfortunately some of our guys were there, and the most serious cavs to medics were there and The Entertainer Need to tell you that you got to medics alive today because of the program these started when you were. There are operator saved their life. And if you're following the news, the Rangers Army Rangers right now when they deploy, every single ranger deploys with trans auto transfusion kit in his in his leg, they now and have actually done in field under fire transfusions..

"Two years I got. A, how about now? Our. And I ended up being the surgeon verse. Force for four years during their rapid deployment. You're one activity. And I've mentioned Eric, Olson. Early our first four standing navy seal I was a lieutenant colonel then and Eric was a captain as sex. We both walked into the Delta Force. A briefing room bumped into each other in our classmates. We we chased women together drank beer together. Bob We here we are. Going to breed health equity doing here, he goes. What are you doing here? I so I I work on the new command surgeon, and he goes on the new commanding officers seal team six. I still all be damned. And we we a lot of fun over those few Years Watch. Each Other's teams worked together in our in the joint world. We live in Yeah I'm on a grid grit story. Why Medicine? Now I missed that part. What was the the kind of got you interested in medicine? Good pickups. I didn't explain that and it's worth revisiting because when the Navy would not take me back and I discovered myself not enjoying the job I was doing his MBA in Washington DC. Naval Sea Systems Command stuff. And I said I've been really thinking hard about what I want what I want to be as commander in the seal team's again, but they won't let me play that game, so I've got to find something that I can enjoy as much as I enjoyed that job which to this stay his best job I've ever had, but when I look back at my college years, there was one course the only course that I got an a plus on, and that was biology. So then I started thinking well, who does biology things and I go might doctors to biology things and then? Then I started looking in to the doctor world. I didn't have any role models to fall back on, and just thought about thought about one day came to my wife and I said I think I wanna go to medical school, and I get to things from going to medical school. One is I get to be a doctor. Which I think I'm really going to enjoy and the second I'm going to get my green ID card back because I wanted to be back on active duty from day one. My plan was not just to be a doctor, but a military doctor. To be able to do the things that I love and AIDS. It's turned out to by the way to be brilliant choice. My, second book, which was just published. If you forgive this obvious plug. And Saints, a doctor just came out this month, and it's looking back on thirty five years of medicine and peacetime and wartime Iraq the second airborne. which we have time we can talk about, and it's again making the point that you can do anything for thirty five years. And still be excited. If you love what you do, and then I think you said that one of your interviews also you need to love what you do. The norm out of money in the world is worth doing a job. You Hey. I agree with that on a percent, but I found myself wasn't early part of the war. Two thousand three doctors were doing six months rotations in Iraq and coming back, and that was ugly time for the war, lots of casualties, then military medical course you know we're going to change these doctoral -tations to one year and I just made full bird colonel and left Delta Force by now and I was back in command of the eighty second airborne division clinic, and I saw the handwriting on the wall, called up the bosses, and said I think I would like to go to Iraq now because it'll be the last of the six month deployments basically. We don't have a place for a colonel but. We got a job for Dr and I said we'll do it. Give the doctors job because that's what I like best anyway. And I found myself deployed to have any Iraq. Middle Bad guy country in two thousand and three with the Second Charlie Medical Company of the eighty second airborne division and we we took over a bombed-out airfield and turned it into an emergency room. A full says clinic, five bed hospital, and all we had to work with was bombed out stone buildings without doors, windows, or like Trysofi, so that was a challenge in one hundred thirty degree heat and I learned a lot about desert medicine and the challenge come with it. And I look back on and I. WHO was without question? Most amazing experience I've ever had as a doctor and one. That I'd really rather never do again. In things that you see with explosives, injuries and gunshot wounds. They're not things that you get to train for very much in residency. Yeah, so. Thank you very much for your time. Servicemen in. Don't call me again. Is there any. From being an Afghanstan and Iraq out on seeing some of those field hospitals, it's it's obviously challenging environment was there any particular incident that stands out in your mind is like. Wow, this is like this is pretty heavy stuff. Yeah, yeah, there is there is there to actually. Give you the really short one I. We had an Iraqi working on building our clinic when A. Stone Wall fell on him, busted his leg and he shows up in my brand new barely have gauze pad clinic with bone, sticking out of his leg and. Morphine given and through the translator, I tell them under occuren- rolls. We can't treat Iraqis are surgical, so we're just GONNA. Package in, send you to your doctors..

"Com, and six days of a possible it's it's on Amazon, please go pick up a property and yeah. Welcome to the show Bob Thank you very much Sir To kick it off with. Just kind of have a you. Give us a background on kind of. Story! Where'd you go up? Why'd you go in? Militarily? Wanted to seals the catch us up to date. Director now as I thank God for we started this. You're in my background are very similar in that. I grew up in an alcoholic dysfunctional father. Family left at seventeen to join the navy. I chose the Naval Academy because three of four. My previous generations of males have been academy grads, and I wanted to be a sale as well I might as well be an officer I'm going be a seal off I went, but it was as much to get away. was anything else and interestingly this? This was nineteen seventy three that I would graduate at the Naval Academy. When seals were really a brand new entity, and the Academy viewed dude, my career choices quite negatively dude. There's no Ega make admiral, and they were right when I kept quiet. Guy Commission went underwater swimmers school in Florida as a vacation thing on route two destroyer, because only three men from our class got seal slots one of whom was Admiral Eric Olson are I started first four star Navy seal as you know. They went off. I went down in seal school similar to what happened to you on your dive boat. Navy sealer was my instructor and said Hey. You're having a lot of fun down here. We're trying to hurt you. Don't you think you'd like to be a seal? And that's. What sort of triggered my direction and I ended up a year on that destroyer out of San Francisco and the Tenant Scotty Lions and a my future instructor steamed Frisk game through San Francisco. Recruiting I got off the ship went to the tryouts and six months later found myself in bud strain, so it was just a combination of hopes, and dreams come in reality in the navy that happened from six months later I, found myself and by the training, and now this hopes and dreams. Led to where I was. Lost Eighty one. Class of eighty one and matter of fact, we started Myanmar. Statistics are just like your classes statistics. We started with seventy graduated eleven. We had eight officers in our class. Only three of US graduated from the Naval Academy and anything you do in life. That is a little harder as as you pointed out before if you have a better chance of of. Moving on and the reason I wrote the book six days of impossible about navy seal hell week I did it as a doctor looking back because as A physician now, and it's been eighteen years in special operations and combat operations, and I've always looked back with my eleven classmates to try to figure out why we made it when everybody else didn't an ill. Appreciate this the one common theme that I write about in the autobiography of those eleven men in this book is that we had all been. To the curb by life multiple times, and then we went to seal training. So that helped a lot. All right so high attrition rate just like my class. You're you had shared something interesting which I kind of arrived in my own conclusion. That Basically most the people that graduate buds have already been kind of kicked in the teeth lie. They learn how to deal with adversity all those fancy questionnaires they ask us you know when you finish. What sports did you play? Who Do you hang out with I? Think if they just asked us, have you had your ass kicked before in life are shopping here. That would be a pretty good indicator gonNA. Make Absolutely and I went back as a physician interviewed all my other classmates and. was what I discovered is the one thing we all knew had happened to us that life had. Tested US and it wasn't discus. We wrestled her played Lacrosse. Or One New York state golden golden gloves boxer, but you know we'd had real life crises that the messed with US animated a whole lot easier to deal with the hardest. People can even imagine you and I had go through when it gets that hard and you've got options. Because life has been really good to you. It's just too easy to walk away, yeah. Okay after after buds, so that was kind of fun I like telling this story because. My instructors were right out of Vietnam. The Vietnam War had just ended Mike Thornton, medal of honor winner has a whole chapter in my book. When he tried to run me out of training, and almost succeeded just really great men, you and I in the company of Heroes But the war was winding down, and the money was going away in the military was drawing down so five years later. I said you know I've I've got to go an NBA and teach my fortune on the outside transferred to the reserve he'll teams came out to the east coast seal team for went back to school to get. My Mba got a job as an MBA hated it immediately. Called, the Navy up, take me back. I made. A terrible mistake turns out. They don't give you thirty days of paid vacations. Threat Whale agenda. Thanks for your time, but you know we're still draw down. We don't need more frogman, you know. Call me so you know we'll. We'll call you if there's another war that war didn't happen. Till Nineteen, eighty-seven may soon got activated about two months after I got sworn into the army as a second lieutenant medical school student, so I just skipped over a series of years to get to. To that exciting ending, but a after being told by the navy that they couldn't bring me back on active duty and went home to my wife, and said you know. I don't like this MBA thing. It's not as much fun as I thought. I think I, WanNa go go to medical school. Be a doctor and I was thirty at the time and she's well. Go ahead and try to take anyway. And we had one kid one on the way and I. I been more time and I said you know sweetheart. If we do this, I'm looking at seven years of abject poverty for us. You know and we're making a good living now you're you're really let me do this, you know. Stay the love of my life, and she just very simple inner answer she goes. We were poor and happy when. When we got married, we can be poor happy again and for seven years we.

"Military post military career. Yeah of course I can do that and I can be brief. I came in the regular army as a indirect fire Infantryman S. That's a mortar true. My first assignment was a mechanized infantry in Colorado with fourth mic. Id and I was really unhappy there. But I didn't. I didn't see a great eric way out the one. The one way out that I readily recognized is that if I could go to special operations units where I'm sure I was sure. The level level of motivation was much higher than it was where I was at the one of one hurdle. That was In my way was was airborne school ahead to have airborne school to get any of these places you know Rangers or Green Berets and I still have a real terrible clinical fear of heights so at after a couple of years years in that mechanized unit I was ready to jump without parachute. Frankly I just had needs to get out of there so I did go to airborne not assignments with with Some special forces a teams was there for a few years. And then at a lot of people's recommendation Dacian management level and peer level. We recommended that I should try out for Delta Orse and I it I did trial for it reluctantly and I actually. He made it through the first time through selection. So that's where I spend my last two years. And if I recall correctly I was reading your selection assessment. RTP to the other day you over prepared before your first attract Rx. Yeah I did and that was my fault. Well I was nervous at no time. Did I ever honestly feel that I was able to make it through selection so that left me with my best effort. Four regard is going to do the best I can and I remember a somewheres encouragement from the key person and that made me decide to go to selection James Nelson He said you know Georgia's scenario body experience. Just gotta go go there so I. I did my train up and I overdid it. I injured my feet. My feet were blistered. The morning that I packed up my stuff off to go catch an airplane to fly west. Virginia I was carrying my bags and I was literally limping to my car. And I stopped at the trunk of the car and I said what am I doing. You cannot limb you know to to Delta selection you cannot be limping your way there is just it can't happen you're I am not going to recover so I pulled my bags and made the phone call to West. Virginia said I was unable to make it so they said US too bad. We'll see the best hope. We hope you can try out in the future. And at that point you know. Discouragement was their intention of retraining at all. That did the best. Could I couldn't even make it to selection and one of the one of my students assigned to Key West. At the time I was a cadre member the Special Forces Combat Dive Operations School and what if students had just is names. Victory Bear is his name and he had just come from selection in came from the same class I was supposed to make and he said. Hey Sir hey were you supposed to make it to uh selection course here recently and I said yeah as a matter of fact I was you know and he said well I had a bunch. I was assigned to bunk and EH was a top bunk bunk below me. Had Your name on it. Damn that's is a spooky very good choice. A word that is. That's that's really really how I felt gave me Gooseflesh the Anna it was spooky. It may be really think that's a sign that's an omen. That's whatever it is and incidentally that same stood Vickrey bear. He went back and tried later and he did make it and him and I were there together in different squadrons but that changed my mind I mean that same day I just was putting together a plan. You know getting a mission focus and I started training that that same. I'm day and I. I kept my program. I was never able to meet the recommended guidelines that the unit published for four selection. You know like they recommend recommend ten miles this day at the speed twenty miles and so on I was never able to keep up the speed that they recommended with the weights. They recommended and to me. That said you can't make it then if you can't do this you can't follow this curriculum at the standards that you don't have a chance of making it but the James Sudduth in my head saying George can't explain it but you just have to go. You need to go and so I it did go. And honestly after Arthur macnamara has the phrase he likes to say in regards to it boils down to go after this thing that you can release euro the intense drive that you have. You can release the obsession you they have with getting this thing if you can release that that the chances of you actually getting it are going to increase and that seems like contrary to do a lot of what I've heard grown up but I I've embraced that saying and when I got to West Virginia on it didn't really matter Attar to me if I made it if I made it that was going to be great. It was GONNA be gravy but I didn't expect to make it and it wasn't going to kill me if I if I- tails washed out because I was still going back to a really prestigious position with the combat combat divers academy it just kind of gave me a calm and it should be out and that calm just kind of stayed with me as the days when I was regulate myself seems anyway it. It just kept me consisted day after day and I made it through. How did you end up as an instructor at the rbis this combat diver cody kind of a selfish reason? Really when I was stationed with I Green Berets in in Washington State I had the number of years I had in the service at the time with With Special Forces it was mandatory that I had to go a poll a few years duty with the Special Warfare Center in other words I had to come off the action the action a teams and I had to go on it administrative a tour for three to four years on the platform teaching other green berets various subjects and they call that a swift Levy S. W. C. Levy. And so I was worn. Yeah you're coming up on a sweep Levy said Wail. I've gotTA. I've gotTA BE PROACTIVE. And I'm going to be selfish. I want to go out. I WANNA I WANNA get the platform position that I want. I don't want to just show up and have them say. Oh you're going to be teaching math folding. I can't recall a Mike so I had my sights set on Key West Florida because the cadre there at Combat Dive Academy. I mean that that Academy at the time it may be still is is by far the most difficult special forces course out there therefore for the cadre there are just a real elite select bunch of guys from from different teams and. That's just absolutely what I wanted. You Know I. I didn't want to be the best guy ever it someplace. If I was the best guy I felt. Then we're hurt because you know I'm not all that and two so when I went to key west. Yeah I definitely was not the best guy. There I was fastest. Runner was smartest guy I go so this is what I want surrounded by all these guys that are you know. They're just a inviting beat. Approved by myself is what it is so I felt I really got spectacular influence fluids from those those guys and ended at as a matter of fact those guys were one by one try for Delta Force and they were making it six guys from the Key West Cadre when I was involved to their six of US tried out for Delta and every one of us made it. That's remarkable markle. It is remarkable. It just really is. I can trish partner though when you say if you're surrounded by great guts it great guy also I totally believe that especially when I got to Delta you know like I disappeared in Delta. I I was just a you know middle of the road person. Listen all surrounded by and younger guys to surrounded by younger guys just absolutely you know choked me with their dust. They were there spectacular. You know in that. That was definitely a place to be so every day was was just a challenge to try to get better and better you know the fear of not being not being able to make the grade. was there overtime. It wasn't just a front in the beginning. You know like well stand on your head ahead and pass this course. You'll you know it's all gravy from here. It's all downhill gravy train. That's not the way it was mad at like. I got out of the the training group and got a team I was. You'd think the person's fresh out of training are going to be all shaped you know and have all their all the essential the skills they've been learning practising through fast past six months they know they're gonNA could ever want to shame just was not like that. I got on a team and I was just. The I was the pumping in the was. The worst shot was the slowest runner. You know and I just by four or five guys on there. They're to To try to be as good as one day just constantly try to catch up. Think it's the motivation but it's also like It's an onus too you know or maybe it's a sort of Damocles but it's something they're the telling you that if you don't you know if you don't try hard every single day it'd be honest with yourself that you could find your you could find yourself Bree assigned somewhere else for attitude for performance than I sell is is fall by the wayside and lose their position in Belgium for both of those things fiscal performance for attitude and also and it's this is a big deal in the community in this day and age but for moral failure to Backed on on a in keeping with the morals that our heart culture in Delta Force. I mean there's no lying there's no cheating there's womanizing there's no war crimes. You know those things I feel strongly would never happen. They would never get a chance to happen because the guys on the teams when they see that sort of thing coming up up in a person they're gonNA pull that guy they're gonna take care of them or he's going to be on his way somewhere else reassigned. And why do you think is is that. Why do you think that Saturday's wouldn't happen in Delta otherwise may use or special operations units? I thought about that a lot. Not Not not a lot of thought about that. A tremendous amount of and that question is almost as hard as George..

"Sport in there are two ages rangers.

We asked about enemy force and enemy said. Oh it's minimum guys bast okay. Ron that the rangers took a far pen for with rockets and gas and bullets so cool needed close and it was. It was relatively close. Human Turnaround God never wolf ghetto. Amo- was the far sport. NCO birthday we got ready to take off their their on the dam and in light resistance and then all of a sudden everytime Mo- key the Mike. I could hear gunfire. Every time he was still. It would get more intense. It's an incoming gunfire outgoing go firemen. We could hear. RPG's we could hear heavy machine guns and at this point Mos- screaming over the radio trying to get in touch with his fire support. The ages will crap man. I couldn't talk to them and finally I finally just I went up on the sat in. I cleared all the nets because I you know we work with each other for years years and years and years you know God buys voice and kind of knows knows Temperament and May and Moses. I mean the hair stood up for both barred. NEX were like Gosh. We've got to get there so I can remember we turn. We went north of lake to come from an north to south because MOS- bt there blocking position was on the west end the Dan they had another BPL east side of the dam. There are about one hundred and eight hundred hundred ten rangers their minimal the Delta guys I finally got hold of Mo and I'll look Mike like this. I was just very angry at the time. And I says you know I said a man on the moon can talk to fuck in Houston Texas. It and I can't talk. You know four miles from my fire support Guy Anyway. We knew where they were. We came anymore this leg. I mean we were hauling the male we were we pulled the GUT sallow helicopters. Get there because our buddies we're about to get overrun. We come folks. Dan and bumped taste so am I never seen anything like this before my life and I hope I never do. It was literally tracer spilled the skies on the South Side Damn looked at my heike neglecting me. We're like away. I worked for many laughs I saw most strobes. You know all there's like I think seven or eight of them in that BP and everyone. I'm we're fire just as fast as they could and look just beyond him and there was probably a company size element maneuvering on their block position and they're dudes run everywhere everywhere and we find out later it was it was Iraqi regimental of Republican Guards. FETTUCCINE wow man water pump gun guns. They said there were between three. And four thousand in May forces there but command been told that the Americans Americans were coming to blow the damn so they were you know. They didn't want to lose her. Had A big base their data so they didn't WANNA lose town they they didn't know we were there. Save Damn so they were. They were attack in to save the Damn Cesar people downstream since saint. Let's irony so would bumped up. I saw and we shot Mo told us we shop twelve meters in front of those guys. That's how close the enemy was presented. This we mowed down like bowling pins man broke right. Came back around L. and young ranger on the East beeping. He was he was making a call for fire. He was in distress night. All regular I said I got gotcha location. Man Just just mark the target. This marked the target because under stress. You know we're all taught standard called for fire and he was like they you this me fire mission by this market target. Bless his heart you know. I know praying and again you you know engaged at least a company size element probably twenty thirty meters in front of his position and then a fight was on man. We we a A. We shot eleven loads that night both. Ah Older We got four thousand mm rows of many and then fourteen rockets do math on me and it was a it was a plus whoever's not flying in the a h you've got your home for up and engaging targets of opportunity with the rim four and I swear George the both Tim bubbles. Bob Wells were full of five five six brass and and we would drop tagger names on guys. We started doing that. That's another story but by in a long run hanger dates off a little bird net. We start doing that now. Ghanistan Yeah we burned up. The we've burned up our little far that the Rangers had set out it was I think three or four loads we had a gal also but we used it up. I I don't know how fast man but it was just gun run after gunrunning. Plus or wires Just pull at dam up on Google or disturbing picture of it I got it. Yeah got it up and also chief for you on. That's the phrase river there and forty eight thousand rounds. Yeah Yeah The plus all the plus all the five five six an anger needs it. We threw out shot him bubble when we landed that not Matimba was full of five five six. That's cheap. What's a tin bubble? The bubble it's worth the is down low so inside the aircraft where the puddles are in last Chin bubble GOTCHA. Yeah yeah so brass just you know just deflects inside inside the aircraft and actually shot. I was in the Leslie are shot one one time and I couldn't have done this about a try to a million billion times but the piece of these brass hit the center console and it ricocheted hit Mike in the throat so it went down as inside his body armor and there's no he starts curry and I'm like Oh my God are you hit or heels now now he says a piece of brass. Okay I can see that. My Mind's eye man. Oh Lord it was it. Learn to tie but way I know. Burn the heck out of him and I'm going to interrupt. I'M GONNA make sure I get this visual correct because I know what I know about. Ah Pilots so you guys are flying gun runs and one of one or the other of you. I don't know maybe both let me know are hanging outside of Hilo. Oh shooting in Fort Carbonate Toads run around on the ground. Is that correct. That's correct does matter intro. That's been as you got your own four up engaged. Plus you're you're doing your cockpit duties you know. Help them. The gas line wires or finding the target. Yeah we found it very very effective Afghanistan Afghanistan to use a user rifles engage targets are offset with guy line. He's focused on no shooting target that he's supposed to end. Yeah it's just very effective. Am I personally have known that you guys are not just a pencil weapon carrying a weapon inside your cockpit weapon. Check you know helmet rush. I've been on the pods. It was again. It was in Africa in Nineteen ninety-three gun off the pods and run dry on my primary pilot. PACI Stilo Hand Your magazine. That's what he did he he. He stuck in a magazine out the out the door and I looked up on this guy's got a he's got an informant doesn't have an. MP Five is he's got a bad sem foresaw. So I took his magazine and that guy could proceeded to handy seven more magazines. I said about an arsenal upfront. You know he means business so again. Yeah we I would always carry. Ten magazines has probably. We're GONNA basically eight Oman Yemen. Baseba one gun and one in a pocket. Somewhere that was deep. Biggest Battle of Iraqi. War was the deep day and it lasted being there for seven days. Yeah we're like where's where's that armored unit here three days ago classic did they occurring of magazines became an appeal. Repeat after the band. Black Hawk down incident so pilots covering them high amount of personnel. No doubt yeah that that's a real good point dragos it. It was back in ninety three. They Los Accrues Kate. MP Fives after the battle Mogadishu in the AAAR's and the debriefs. They went back lack to carry an M. fours one the MP five offer the range that no we needed to have down and it was just the is better weapon system for our for our operations that that's a submachine gun. It's not an assault rifle. No well thanking was the aircraft went down it would be an urban area in close quarter so I think they thought the MP five would be a better weapon system but after Mogadishu they found different. Yeah and those pilots. I mean they did their share of hanging out the doors and shoot their MP fives man absolutely they sure did delayed it down broke. Yeah it's a meanest Lottie Dottie. Everybody man we gotta go and fight to Yob pilots are guilty of no pretense awesome combat. The night starner's no numb their their fighters. Man on well most of us in B-company Kinda interesting. We all came from from combat arms as enlisted. I mean we have rangers we had dealt guys. SF guys and if you guys and so yeah it was it was just kind of a natural drawl for those for us knuckle dragging killers to co fly h. a. and you also done in Iraq correct. Yes Sir yeah. Nineteen March two thousand four. When you mind telling us about l'instant yes a lower debt was again? This is another day at the office but yeah we had. We've been extremely busy. Oh three Oh four. Four and there was collusion Ramadi in Amarillo which is south of pollution. It was we we call it. Kinda Kinda the Devil's triangle. Simply because they're been. I believe it'd been seven helicopter. Shot down in that trying. So I mean Sh- nooks awesome fifty-eight blackhawks and it was just bad bad place. We've been hitting targets. In of course we got Intel L. off of one led to another led to another in them on the nine a team with be squatter got Intel that a a high value target. We're looking forward to going to be there ten o'clock next morning we're just well just kind of sunk we're like. Oh God daytime. No you know things happen tonight. Stocker Schnur today. Quite frankly up to this point I mean the whole taskforce. We've been extremely successful from a warm up until now you know I think some I'll I bought you know we're we're the morals though after the dam and some other large battles that we've been in crap weight come out unscathed. Hey than most of the guys we'd lost few guys but not many so we came back came off that target SAR major says. Hey we had a little what are east of collusion. Is's hey you guys go hang out there. Crank up get a phone radio we need you. Where like who? Okay yeah because March. Oh four man floozy was wild. Wild West was Larry so we sat there. Those guys hit the target. I got the guy off brought him back. Well there's another high target. We're looking forward down by Maria so I said all right. We're just going to drive down there. Go Kill like like God. Then we're going to go back Baghdad's says I want you guys to go back to Baghdad there by off get some rest Ricardo lockette roger left so they headed south. They drove down five vehicles.

"delta force" Discussed on Mentors for Military Podcast

"Course and went to tenth groups so I I just did this the process through that how you had had a buck Carson at Carson and ended up going to Carson. Yeah that's that's too and my Man I met a lifetime friend whose name was building Arly Dean I met him at Fort Lewis just I mean where he's in a pod Alaska boy We race together train together. Unfortunately Lee Billy just got. He got killed this past spring after he retired in a freak accident on On Mount Rainier that so this this kid I mean talk about a great American hero again. These these unsung heroes. But we met at Fort Lewis and we did everything together we did. We did assessment assessment selection. We went to tenth group together. We were in the same battalion and company we fought adjacent to each other in Iraq for for many many years and then we went to Delta selection from Colorado. You know it was just it was it was just a magical time. Everything just seemed to to just fall my way man. Yeah now I mean a lot out of that has to do with you though You talk about falling away. You made a conscious effort in everyone of these decisions. As I was listening to it you had a goal and there was nothing that was going to stop you so You know you you could share that. It was people that helped you along the way and everything else but driven I love that you know I mean there. There should be more people out there that set that kind of goal that expectation and go all in until somebody tells you know and then you just keep driving until you hear it over and over. What did they say? in the sales world Seven knows well. That's what you should do all the time for your own career as well you know. Just gotTa keep having people tell you because eventually usually they're gonNA see too and how much passion you have so when you end up going through selection not everybody passes the first time it gets in as well. I mean you've got to be a special kind of individual so it sounds like you got in first time I I did you know. And and it's it's funny for one thing. Bob Is why we need to encourage our young people just like you you you have to not be afraid to fail. You'll failing forward is. Is that idea now. I was always that was the only thing Delta selection that I did not enjoy I mean I loved again I I I. I am not as great athlete but I was A. I was very athletic. I I have certain endurance gifts adventure racing facing in mountain running. That was my thing. So Delta selection physically was not difficult but it was the fear of failing and the fear that this that my dreams would come mm crumbling down and I referenced Billy Dean earlier and I remember also when we're out for Carson. He was single. You know and he'd he'd come over were and eats you know he'd have some Grand Day. Whatever forty miles in the mountains? Let's do this and do this and do that. And I'm married with two kids. I'd like billy how about how about just ten miler. You know. I'll be back for lunch. You know what I mean that kind of thing and we would train together and and I I I'll I remember talking to him and insane bill the to Me Delta sex built Delta selection is like an ultra marathon. It's not who's in front in the beginning is not who's in front at the middle. It'll it's who who is getting to the finish line you know. And that's that's how I played it out But again to Billy's crocodile also never forget him saying he's like look you also so have a history that that he didn't have I had five years is that NCO I lead. He led men into battle at at tenth group but I lead men into battle in in Panama Ma and Desert Storm and how NCO background and a bunch of other things. He said I he. He felt like he needed to really shine at selection. No that he needed to be first in everything And he recognized that that was a risk but he felt that it was necessary for him to be noticed and selected. And I'll tell you what that's going to was first on everything. Wow I've got to ask you because we've had guys on here that we're where former Delta that we're enlisted side of it so I'm curious and we may have some listeners who are paying attention to this who are from the officer's side and going okay. What's the difference because there are typical roles roles typical? NCO officer you know you had it in range your bat and you haven't irregular infantry and the regular military but do things change I know no. They changed slightly within the special forces. To some regard I mean but what is it like in the Delta side of things so the selection is identical for one. I don't I don't think that's what you're asking. We know the Matt. Yeah yeah that's one of the things that is special about the unit is the the. NCO's can look at the officers know they did the exact same thing that that the NCO's had to do to get there We actually have a little added bonus couple a couple of days of fun that I won't talk about because it'll spoil the fun for those listeners. I had no idea like you know you get done with the forty and all the NCO's are done and then all of a sudden done. It's it's officer Games for a couple of days. I told me about this. So that's all I'm going to say Officers keep your shit together. Because there's there's more once you're done you're done helping but then when you get to the get to the unit so again I would say when I got to Delta. They were already on a war. Footing got author in two thousand and five. They've been they've been fighting since two thousand one you know two thousand and three they had they had a rock so I think the officer Sir that was needed in Delta. When I got there was was the type of officer I was a tactician? A strategist somebody who who just knew how to how to fight how to integrate great share of battle operating systems. They're old words. We used to use integrate battle operating systems so there was a lot to. Do you know that officer back in the nineties. When there wasn't war you know? He represented the unit in a different way and he might not have been as integrated into into the NCO's that that have been there for ten fifteen twenty years. But when I got there we were sorely needed. You know we were. We need to know how to fight our troops together. We need to know how to fighter squadrons together. We needed needed to know how to integrate with all of the other Systems on the battlefield. From like we talked about armor mechanized Ada to these foreign units. So so that was that was my role and one of the ways that we talk about it in the in the unit is the when you're on target the NCO is down in in. He's controlling rolling the fight. He's controlling. What's happening right here in the here and now and the officers looking he's controlling whatever is flying in the sky like what's happening next and that was kind of how are we divided the the Labor on on the battlefield so I loved it Yeah again until you until you get higher up once you leave a troop and you start moving into staff positions and now you're kind of planning campaigns and things like that writing desk lot more working on staffs that was when I stopped opt feeling like NCO disguised as an officer. And you know somebody that was actually officer. Yeah and lost some of its allure bluer. Yeah so I mean a lot of people. Listen to this who aren't already aware. I mean some of the probably the biggest recruiting areas that Delta defines the unit finds its force from our the rangers. I mean a lot of them. Come from where they come from all walks of life my but Ranger Regiment is certainly certainly one of those areas where a lot of guys ended up transferring over. So I always tell guys if you're even thinking about going to something like the unit that's something you really the desire to do or for that matter even special forces you get a good baseline there and regiment and then then it's a different world. Mind you when you leave there and you go to the other especially if you go to just special forces very different than Ranger Regiment. The mindset the daily regime you know very different and it's fascinating too because as we all we kind of get set on that one track you know to be the operator officer And that's what I've always told people also in special forces and especially in Delta Delta in in Special Operations Command J sock man. There's a lot of different aspects of warfare that they need officers and they need singleton's in there's an entire careers. There's that we don't even that we don't even talk about you know and that's one of the things that I find ironic One of my good friends. He's still in the unit. Okay it's two thousand twenty. Now he's been in the unit for fifteen years but he failed selection okay so he didn't get on that track that we did he. He felt selection but he was picked up to come the unit as a as a support officer. Because you know if you if you don't pass the lecture if you don't pass OTC If you're if you're equality dude oftentimes they'll ask you newcomb and work as an assistant operations officer or some kind of specialty thing and this dude is so talented. He hasn't left So his at that you know there's so so many different career paths in all of these different styles of warfare that kind of blur that line between conventional warfare conventional warfare kind of agency agency three letter three letter agency type style of Warfare Intelligence collection operations. There's just there's no reason to leave. It's it's an amazing opportunity to to defend and support your country in in some really interesting jobs for for what I picked up too though Jeff is something we were very young. You mentioned that when things didn't quite go your way you decided to go ahead and bail and you're like okay man. I'm Outta here. I'm out of the military area and then like me. You know you come back in When you become a little bit more seasoned and an older within the military whether that's even ten years eight years somewhere along long timeframe you should be making different career changes in different career choices? But I think your point that I take away is keep your head you know. Keep your head up as you're going through some of these different types of schools and training and everything else because somebody's going to be observing you as you're going through it if you get down on yourself if you cut yourself soft short if you don't show that you're doing you know you're really there for what you you were trying to portray that you were there for then you know. Maybe they won't look at you but if you're like really heads up man we'll just come back type of attitude or may maybe I'll look for something else so I'll try to provide a way to support them much like you did when you went went to college and you said Hey y'all come back in a different avenue look what this guy that you're talking about. They saw that they recognize that. Hey come back. Here's a different role we'll have for it. Works in the private sector as well by the way the same same type of setting your value. And I think that's that's the true magic of of Delta is is is that people come from all over male female any any place in the service and if you're a quality individual that that has the personality and the and the aptitude that they'll take you on Yeah and I agree with you. I thought you were going to go that I also agree with is. There's also a point where you have to realize who you are and what you what you want to do. You know where the military has has its fasttrack like this is what it's take it. Take an infantry. You're going to be a platoon leader. And then you're GonNa Work Staff Commander. Going to work staff are going to be taken talion ticket brigade they define what successes S.'s. And I think too often our soldiers get get stuck in what that narrow definition of successes is like I said I love leading small troops. I have no interest in leading a hundred men. A thousand five thousand is just not. It's just not who I am and I think that's part of it too in your we're starting to make some connections here out in the business world man. Don't let the way things are defined you or what a success path looks like routinely define you if you know who you are and you know what you want..

"delta force" Discussed on Mentors for Military Podcast

"Long story short. The unit says Nice. Try Bud. Oh so they figured it out. They catch the discrepancy before. I get to go the shroud. I'm begging I'm just let me try Roy out of mine just like you said a few minutes ago on the smartest on the smartest thing I was if I become an e. six or something and I I became that anger ranger okay. I can't it I can't be or do what I what I want to do. Then the hell with all of it and I'm I'm going to leave And that that's what kind of push I pushing me out the door. Plus I just wasn't sure if I wanted remember. We call them wipers. I didn't know if I wanted to be a lifer you know who they did. Five years But I tell you it didn't take me long to realize I just loved what I did. So you're five years in your twenty two twenty the three ish years old and you're tsn same thing happened to me by the way. I'm twenty one after four. I thought okay. That's it I didn't I didn't want to stay in army more. I wanted to go. Actually I was thinking like in Patry I wanted to go to. SF there were so many different things that I was kind of looking at. But I also got married so I wasn't sure which route I I wanted to go. And that was the dumbest decision ever made man. I came back almost begging to come back in the door. So I don't know if your situation was any better in nineteen ninety-one anyone when you walked are ninety two when you walked out the door but like you I was married. I had heard these horror stories of these that got out and went to these big universities like went to whatever Ohio state or something and just got swallowed up so I was afraid to go to a big school so Actually one of my school buddies from Key West. He had lived in Wilmington North Carolina. Where a University of North Carolina Wilmington was and he showed us the town it was very similar to Savannah? It was just up the road My Wife's family was was living in North Carolina so it seemed like okay. This is a no brainer. Let's I'll I'll start at University of North Carolina Wilmington Wilmington seem like a like a logical place to go at the time I was I was I was doing a lot of training. It made sense. I remember going to the track cross country coach and saying hey. I'm I'm an athlete eight. I'm coming out of the military. I'm trying to make a round. triathlons would you mind defy Trained a little bit with your team. And he said Hey lo and behold old we have a trial in a couple of weeks. Why don't you come to the trial? See where you stack up so I show up. I go to trial and I. I think I took second in this college tryout for the track the cross country team again not knowing that there's a lot of different levels of collegiate running here so I i. I was good enough for him to offer me a scholarship Give up my aspirations of being attra- fleet and running for UNC Wilmington. And that. And I really found a home. They're I don't know what I would have done without a team. That definitely kept me sane and then again just to not make a story too long I ended up going out to Montana with a friend to train and climb and bumped into the coach's role Montana state and saw that program. It was a top fifteen in the in the nation program. There was a a place for me. they. They made it possible for a scholarship to to transfer out there Got Arranged with you and see women so I ended up transferring from UNC. Wilmington out to Montana state. Wow and and started running out there and while I was there I also was beginning to feel like man I. I have a lot of skills from the military that I just kind of haven't been using her employing and they had an ROTC program. And I talked to some folks there and said mad. I'd love to help a all-terrain your ranger challenge team. I'll teach you guys how to do tactical stocks. I was like okay that I love doing this so I wanted to help these Rossi kids you know and again the the primary meals instructor he was pretty clever. I tell you what he just. He reeled me in man so I started helping now had a beard. I was running. He's like yeah. Why don't you come help us out? And then slowly but surely surely he says what are we. What are your goals what you WanNa do? I wanted to be a psychologist and what I ended up walking back into was I was looking at one of these selection and assessments election cycles lose there were just coming online now. This is the mid nineties about ninety five ninety six and the Rangers and Special Forces and Delta. They were building these assessment professionals with with psychologists to help build these teams. I thought well that would be pretty cool so I can't go I can't go to Delta as an operator but I could I could go to Delta as a psychologist and help them build their team and their professions and all of that. I thought that'd be neat so so I started moving down that track. I had a scholarship for running. I got a scholarship for. ROTC everything was golden. You get five years to do four when you're when you're competing in college and then Bob. I went to Fort Louis for the little summer camp that they do. And I just realized how much I missed maneuver and troops in the woods. Yeah and I came back I said I think I just WANNA go back. Infantry and then around that same time I had heard that Delta was taken is with the correct division. So now my dreams from nineteen ninety-two were back online. Where okay I could potentially go back to Delta an officer With corrected with the corrected is so that was it. I threw all my education down and said I'm going to go back infantry and then Went up to Fort Louis a second ranger down which is where I'm at up here at Fort Lewis Right now. I'm on my way up to Seattle. What was it the change then about the eyesight was that that the military just recognize nuys? Put too much. I of standard was it a need. That was actually out there. For operators what what was the cause that change you think I think it a the PR or case surgery that there was enough there was enough data that showed it was safe. Are they started testing out. They thought when you would halo or school whether it'd be some issues So so they found out that that data would be fine. I had some friends that were in the unit that I kept in touch with. They told me. Oh Yeah. Everyone's getting it you know it's it's it's just one one of those things now so as an officer though it's you know you've got about eight to ten years of work you have to do to kind of prove yourself and check all those officer blocks before before you can come back so I was lucky enough to go to the Second Ranger Battalion How is that going back in as an officer? You know Bob I never felt much different. You know until until it got close to retirement. Yeah you know. Maybe it's just because I was raised an NCO. You know. And and and I saw we had to kind of Complimentary jobs you know and it was a very different climate. When I was in first battalion it was really an unhealthy climate between the NCO officers? I mean we. We did not regard our officers highly at all. I mean to to our to our detriment. It was not like like that by this time. So when I got back when I went back into the second Battalion General Colonel McChrystal was the regimental commander Certain major hall. He was my first sergeant back when I it was a a enlisted guy so they be you know but they had begun to kind of remodel is The Ranger Battalions off. We've kind of what else what else had occurred. And of course molly had occurred so it was. It was a very different feel and I was welcomed with open arms. It was never I've I've just I've just always felt like my NCO counterpart and I. We were a leadership team. There were certain things he had to do. There were certain things I had to do. And you know we just we just worked together. I I didn't start feeling like an officer until I made lieutenant colonel and then and then life started to get a little bit weird him so I I just remember back in the day and again this is you know early to Mid Ninety S. I didn't think regiment took a second lieutenants. You it had to be at least a first lieutenant. And the only second lieutenants I think that they would allow individuals who came from Korea. All right so I was going to skip over this part of the story. You busted me all right so this is the way the way that it worked was if you were a successful. NCO In regiment. You could come back as a as a bar but that was the way that was the way it always was well when McChrystal took over he said I'm Jay. I'm changing that rule and I was down at for bending getting becoming a becoming officer at that time and I remember seeing him around the around the day of the change of command and I went to him. I don't I doubt he remembers this but I was like Sir again. You're realize you just shifted by my whole destiny like I'm here. I'm ready to go to Fort Louis. My family's ready. That's what I was counting on on and you just changed this rule you know and and he said Jeff I got it. I just changed the rule. I can't the first thing I can't do is make an exception. So he said I'll tell you what and he they friends made friends made calls and they ended up getting me two one five infantry which is literally across the street from Second Battalion they go up there do a half a year or nine months as they had a scope platoon that was open That is where I got my experience working. MTC in the fort. Knox stuff. Is that go up there. And do that. And then we'll slide you over into second battalion so I I did do a I think a year ish in one five infantry absolutely absolutely loved it the the Scout Platoon I had was all of the ranger kick outs. Oh that works when you when you do something. They're not bad either. I I mean these are good dudes is just it was more of they got a dui or they got in a fight it was the the Scout Platoon I had was basically arranged a platoon. It was absolutely it was magical and making the slide over Two two two seven five and it was. It was old friends. Actually Captain Odem. Who is a general now? I believe he. He was one of my lieutenants when I was in. You know I mean it was one of those things where it was. It wasn't like going home because I battalion the second segments name but But I I loved every minute of it but was deathly afraid of going mechanized and at that time now is he a light eight lieutenant they wanted you to be a heavy captain and I also began to realize I just really loved the small unit stuff. Yeah do you remember that Book Book Mask of command. Oh Yeah John Keegan you know and the and that always stuck with me where as you get higher in rank and your the the group that you command the size of it you get to pretend you're somebody you're not you know like that. Think of that Ranger Company commander. He gets a walk out in front of his hundred fifty. Not Guys and you know bark a few orders and go back in the office you know whereas that platoon leader. That's that that that's that operation attachment commander the troop commander in Delta. Look man you live with those guys so you. You have no masks to hide behind. You better. Be who you are and I realized early on that. That's really really what I enjoy doing I already had respect for special forces because of my experience in Desert Storm and then my experience going through scuba school and things who's so made made the jump from the black beret to the The Greenbriar and it it's funny. I was there when that it's When they were talking about that change and I was I was the wise L- wise captain at the time Because I had gone through the change in First Battalion. I'm from the O G one zero seven uniform to the BBC's yeah and the US were known as the battalion departure uniform. That's what we call them. No clue so late in the late eighties we're all wearing. Og One seven and the guys wearing the battalion departure uniform. I mean you might as well have the scarlet letter around those are the guys that were getting boots so my only association with the BU was failure you know so the fact that we switched from the seven so the BDU's media use. And I we. We weathered that one the switch from a black to Tan. I was the wise cabinet who is like Look Corp.. It's going to be okay. It's going to be. It's just a fucking hat exactly so what about The selection did you end up going through just basic Delta selection selection or. Did you end up going through the the SAS in Q. of Green Beret and then having do selection so what was your process. There forgot about that too even before Rangers. you rope or I think they call it Rasmus Ranger assessment selection program so even to go to that That was that was a small selection. Just to make sure you're physically fit and tactically sound. Loved it then. Special Forces Assessment Selection Q.. Course and went to tenth groups so I I just did this the process through that how you had had a buck Carson at Carson and ended up going to Carson. Yeah that's that's.

A Review of the U.S. Defense Department in 2019

"Let's take a closer look at the defense department in twenty nineteen correspondent David Martin joins us from the Pentagon David there were some tense moments when the U. S. said Iran attacked the world's largest oil processing plant in Saudi Arabia what happened well Iran court the US intelligence and the Saudis completely by surprise with that attack it was launch from an air base at the top of the Persian Gulf from Iranian territory it consisted of basically a swarm of drones and cruise missiles neither the US nor a Saudi Arabia saw it coming the US basically decided that it was going to let Saudi Arabia decide what should be done in response so there was no real military response from the United States and the Saudis who above all else do not want a war with Iran have not force the issue also in the Mideast that U. S. special forces attack on ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi in northern Syria that led to his death he was hit hard the way he should have been and I just want to say for all of our military were very proud of you I was something very special remind us how that played out well that was in the immediate aftermath of the decision to start pulling US troops out of surgery and it had been in the works for some time the US apparently had a spy inside Baghdad he's compound of who could tell them not only that he was there but tell them the lay out of the compound and so the raid was conducted using the delta force out of a a base in Iraq the mission was to cap sure or kill Baghdadi just as it was to capture or kill Osama bin laden back in two thousand eleven in this case Baghdad he tried to escape from the compound by going down the tunnel but he went down a dead end tunnel apparently with two or three of his children and when one of the war dogs that the delta force had brought with them started pursuing him down that tunnel he detonated a suicide vest he was wearing a killed himself and the two or three children the question remains now what what impact did his death have on ISIS and the opinion of most experts in the US government is that it will not mean the end of vices that at ISIS will recover find a new leader and continue to try to survive by creating sleeper cells that can outlast the presence of American troops in Syria finally David we also saw some changes at the leadership level of the Pentagon including a short lived acting secretary of defense well we're now in our third year of the the trump administration and we are on our third secretary of defense if you count Patrick Shanahan who never became officially the US secretary defense producer for about six months as the acting secretary of defense he was his name was never a sign up to be confirmed by the full Senate and it is a pattern that you see throughout the the trump administration of the original holder of the office of leaving either because he's of fire or be killed comes under criticism from Congress and then acting secretary is appointed and then that situation last for some indefinite amount of time and president trump is even said he prefers to have acting secretaries because they're easier to control and there was one secretary of the navy Richard Spencer who clashed with the president and he was forced out over the case of a navy seal who was tried for war crimes and it was missed by all the people who who have to pay attention to this on a daily basis at the Pentagon Richard Spencer was for a brief period the acting secretary of defense during the the shuffle between Patrick Shanahan and the current secretary of defense mark asper he ran into a buzz saw over the case of the navy seal Eddie Gallagher who was convicted of posing for a photo with the body of the dead isis fighter the president initially overturned the sentence that had been levied on Gallagher and then after that when the navy tried to take away his tried and pan which is the symbol of a navy seal the president intervened once again and ordered that Gallagher be allowed to keep his triton pain with Eddie Gallagher you know that story very well they wanted to take its been away and I said no you're not going to take it away he was a great fighter Izzy yeah one of the ultimate fighters tough guy he's a lot with people these are tough people and we're going to protect our war fighters in the middle that Spencer was negotiating with the White House over a way to satisfy the president without having him intervene secretary defense mark asper thought of Spencer Reid men going behind his back to try to cut this deal with the White House German Millie and I were completely caught off guard by this information and realized that it undermined everything we've been discussing with the president and so markets for fired Spencer although Spencer clearly had already written his resignation letter basically saying he could not in good conscience go along with the president's efforts to intervene in the Gallagher case CBS news national security correspondent David Martin at the Pentagon on a busy twenty

Booing The President, What Goes Around Comes Around Politics And al-Baghdadi's death

"Trump was at the game last night where he was greeted with boos when his attendance was announced during the game accord the Washington Post the crowds sustained booing hit almost one hundred decibels and was followed by chance of lock him up impeach trump when he was introduced after the third inning he good morning and welcome to morning Joe it is Monday October twenty eight and with us we have MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle White House reporter for the Associated Press Jonathan Lemere president of the Council on Foreign Relations and author of the bulk a world in disarray Richard Haass columnist and Associate the Washington Post David Ignatius and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Retired Four-star Navy Admiral James to Rita's he's chief international security and diplomacy analyst for NBC News and Msnbc it was sort of startling and sad to hear those chance of lock him up Saturday from the crowd I do no pleasure in that it really was there have been many traditions that have been brought about Donald trump and his supporters and people around that are UNAMERICAN of even fascist like a chance of lock her up the sent her back but the lock lock her up about Hillary Clinton repeatedly has become a centerpiece and that's what that's what dictators they take over and then they start talking about imprisoning others and it's un-american it's it's here here playing chant here aw that's that's unfortunately it's been fad to America's political system through Donald Trump and last night it was turned against him it but again it's it's it's un-american and the people in the stands that were doing it last night shouldn't have done it in fact they learned they have learned from Donald Trump that's what you do to political opponents I hope that Donald Trump after saying that he could be facing this entire campaign will cut it out we'll cut it up because this is I remember when Barack Obama was leaving office a lot of liberals wanted George W Bush tried by some international tribunal. I remember saying don't do it because it will be you on the other side of the presence he didn't have to worry about retribution from person that you follow yeah of course you don't you never think Mike Barnicle nobody everything's said anybody's ever going to follow them as president the United States when they first get in just like Donald Trump it's never he's never imagined it but live by the sword die by the sword and sure enough now you have donald trump having bar conduct an outrageous an outrageous investigation against Barack Obama and Donald Trump even calling the forty fourth president United States treasonous it's like this guy is just not smart enough to figure out that it goes around comes around and what he dishes out to others will be dished out to him that's why everybody has to tone it down stop chance stop with fat stop with fascists like tactics and the rhetoric it's just on I'm American and it's just not right yeah Joe and you know if you know this I mean most people know this what of people in this country just want the entire situation calmed down they want the country to come down they want candidates to come down be tough to have the crowd last night come down because really into it unfortunately but I think it's important going forward especially today as we talk about the events that occurred over the weekend that we take the time and the fought to separate it donald trump and whatever you feel about Donald trump to separate him and how he behaves in how he speaks from the actions of the Delta Force team the special operation now flew in and conducted that mission is to separate things and the best of the best of who we are and what we do around world's in why so much of the world still relies on this was in operation over the weekend Jonathan Lemaire you can speak to that but also last night yeah I mean it is certainly an American tradition to boo politicians who go to baseball games there's there's a rich history of the American president seeing the American pastime William Howard Taft was the first president throwing the first pitch I remember the Barco was there and every president since has at some point this accident has not yet not since taking office but he went last night I think the people around him we're hoping it could be part of the victory lap after announcing the death of album Dotty earlier in the day that of course was not the case but let's remember he's deeply deeply unpopular in the district of Columbia itself received about four percent of the vote there in two thousand sixteen obviously it's a little bit of a different crowd last night the world series it's more out-of-towners more corporate types still he was going to get booed and he was but certainly it comes at the end of what his administration feels like a a a significant watershed day for him to be able to make this announcement of the death as Mar Mike said you could separate the president and feelings towards him with what happened the day before in Syria this leader of Isis killed this is just gives president an image he thinks to put alongside President Obama's announcement of the death of Sama Bin Laden and it certainly comes at exactly the right time his people feel for it's an undeniable triumph to happen during the midst of the impeachment inquiry and it allows him to defend his Bryant C. and Syria just somebody Republican senators critical we know we're here we can we get we're GonNa get to that right now get Sewri obviously just follow pro Jonathan said there is a very long enrich fish presence it sporting events most of them do all different but now but again I speak to the lock him up chance again I it's just un-american it started with Donald trump in fact he's made it the centerpiece of his campaign rallies we find it sickening when it happened rallies Kinda sickening it's we we are Americans and we do not do that we do not want the world hearing has chant lock him up to that he created this president or any president that's all I'm saying let's hope is move forward maybe this one US fascist tactic he and his supporters us during chance that you were going to actually imprison your political opponents so let's evatt behind and just I don't we'll see we'll see if the astros possible going to finish it off in Houston I don't know if Max can pitch game seventy it's possible that's what she will tell me before we came but I said President Trump yesterday confirmed the death of Isis later Abu Baqer al-Baghdadi following a raid this weekend in northwestern Syria by US special operations forces president trump tease the announcement in the tweet on Saturday night writing quote something very big has happened God I know by the way they had not confirmed it happened at the time as the Washington clown show post points out the White House script on the death of brutal terrorist Abu Bakar Al Baghdadi was short but president trump turned a somber announcement into a vivid forty minute news conference that included bravado detailed descriptions of military option rations questionable statements and self promotion from the first day I came to office and now we're getting close to three years I would say doc where's al-Baghdadi I want al-Baghdadi and we would kill terrorist leaders but they were names I never heard of they would names it weren't recognizable and they weren't the big names some good won some important ones but they weren't the big name I kept saying where's Al Baghdadi and a couple of weeks ago they were able to scope amount you know these people are very smart than not into the use of cell phones more than not they're very technically brilliant you know they use the Internet better than almost anybody in the world perhaps other than Donald Trump but they use the Internet incredibly well and what they've done with the Internet through recruiting and everything and that's why he died like a dog he died like a coward he who is screaming and crying and frankly I think it's something that should be brought out so that his followers and all of these young kids WANNA leave various countries including the United States they should see how he died now Admiral S- Ravidas ah yeah we'll we'll see we'll get to the the strategic importance of what we get to but again just underlining un-american language and and the sound of tyrants again he died like a dog died like a coward upbringing screaming it's just can you please explain to maybe three of Donald Trump supporters who fist when they hear that the downside of that ny the forty four American presidents who preceded him did not talk about casualties on the ward even if they were the most heinous casualties like Osama bin Laden are are are you name it or Japanese opponents at war are not cease why we we didn't talk that way or Qaddafi in Libya for example In every case Joe the problem here is there's is that internal desire to kind of take victory lap but it's counterproductive it comes across as unprofessional it's spiking the ball in the end zone and here's the real problem it's motivational for the other side make an argument that it's a deterrent I don't think so I think that that tape will be played particularly that image of the dog in the Arab world is well known as as an extremely negative and that'll become a recruiting tool that the Islamic state uses on the Internet and for the record I'd say they're better than Donald Trump there managing apparently to conduct a global operations without owning a shred of territory in Easter after we took away the caliphate from them which was another good accomplishment they still conducted a massive attack in Sri Lanka using the Internet to recruit proselytizing conduct the operation they will use this footage to motivate their followers to recruit more. It's really not how we WANNA play the Yes it is it is actually a much smaller level it's what you call basically press clippings from from locker from for locker uh-huh where somebody on the other side said something you cut out the press clippings you put it up and you used to inspire other people in something we don't want here let's let's let's let's go Richard Haass go to and talk about the impact of the death and we'll we'll get into some of the other things I obviously I remember us being celebrating at least most Americans Saar cow was killed I believe it was in two thousand six two thousand seven thinking that the guy that really was the inspiration for Isis and of course that just lead to more silence splinter groups we of course all celebrated we had our on the deck of the Missouri moment a little bit when Osama bin Laden was killed and two thousand eleven we're all cheering but of course out of that came the rise of Isis and so I'm wondering it's we see very important death but do we make the same one man is going to end the movement that he was so successful in spreading the short answer is yes there's no such thing as decapitation when comes to dealing with terrorists because whether you call them networks of movements they're not narrow organizations that are highly structured we're getting rid of the leadership essentially Abel's all the fighters they'll they'll reform they may splinter and so forth decentralisation there in formality in some ways is is a degree of strain so I think we've got to keep the accomplishment as meaningful as it is in perspective and more important justice important you've got to take steps back and say are we putting ourselves in a position where we can do this sort of thing again and again as we will need to do and there I think the jury's out or you've got to say it's going to become much more difficult we're not gonNA have the forces on the ground collecting the intelligence we're not gonNA have partners like the Syrian Kurds and other Kurds doing so much there's still questions about the willingness of this administration to work closely with its own intelligence community so again yesterday was an important day but we shouldn't exaggerate it and I'm really worried about going forward whether we're going to be able to repeat this because we're going

"Work at a beverage company you ask? No, our management was so excited about these terms. We had a meeting about it with three hundred plus people in attendance. It is now the butt of a lot of jokes, rightly. So what is bubbling up? What is the is the idea that we're like? We're saying things. I think what we're doing is we're we're saying, here's what I think. And that's bubbling things up. Okay. It's not bringing it to upper management or something might be. It's just bringing it to the surface using language, which is what we do all the time at work. Here's what I would suggest Mary. Maybe you could confound people by using. Slightly skewed versions of these words. Like gurgling it up tinkling doubt. Start seeing that anyone notices right? Just is logical as the words you're using. Sure. I wanna see a communist using that instead of trickle down economics. That's what it feels like. Sometimes it does to those of us on the bottom. All right. Here's one from our listener. Carl. He says, I find that most corporate jargon are just opportunities for people to complement themselves. For example, bleeding edge, which basically refers to something so cutting edge. So revolutionary anew term needed to be going. But did it really or my least favorite term he says is when a group of people are symbol to fix a problem and either call themselves a swat team or at tiger team come on going back to my military's delta force, people like it. I, I understand it, but you're right. That is a little ridiculous to call your little group that's planning the company. Picnic swat. It's kind of like when whoever's in charge of the corn hall. Anyway, that's important. The tiger team cornhole. You're right. Although I will also say the car, aren't you in a way by denting this and sending it into a podcast to be read over the, aren't you sort of seeking compliment for yourself? So maybe we could all just maybe not cast aspersions now, I think it's because podcasting is so bleeding edge we. That's right. We are often say on the bleeding edge of podcast, technology got one more here from Becky. You wanna read this. Sure. I just came across the most intensely lingo filled sentence that I think I have ever seen, and I thought you might enjoy it as well. Thanks, Becky. That strategic planning team grows the organization's portfolio via visiting strategic themes, roadmaps and enterprise consolidation. Any idea what they actually do? She s not me, yes. No, I don't get it either. Maybe they do nothing that that is true. That's a fancy way of saying, I don't do anything things like we say things and we think things and we can do that for you. We realize, ladies and gentlemen, but. We're going to go doesn't always come from the corporate world. If you work in an industry that has ridiculous jargon. We want.
