"Of Dick winters and celebrating D. day and just a few facts again just so you understand just the sheer mass of nature of this enterprise five thousand ships and landing craft fifty thousand vehicles eleven thousand planes a literal air and sea armada with laying vehicles ready to go unimaginable this has so much to do the city of America our industry and our innovation and our spirit no other nation in the world could have managed something like this England was holding out waiting for us to come and save not only them but the western world and we're focusing now on this one story because in the end it's one great series and I would recommend that everybody buy on Amazon one great series spawned from one great book by Stephen Ambrose in that series his band of brothers chronicling the man of G. company second battalion five hundred and sixty parachute infantry regiment one hundred first airborne division the unit was known as easy company there was nothing easy about their mission that brave band of warriors jumped out of planes and parachuted right into some of the fiercest combat of World War two they started behind enemy lines near the beaches of France fought their way through operation market garden in the Netherlands the battle of the bulge and all the way to eagle's nest it was posh retreat tucked in the Alps about Burke to stop the tour of duty was so tough that as one easy company soldier would later write about his fellow soldiers in his unit quote the Purple Heart was not a decoration but a badge of office born in a freighter Pennsylvania winters moved to Lancaster when he was eight years old like so many small town American boys he was raised on small town values one of which was service to country indeed as family connection to the military went all the way back to Timothy winters a British immigrant who served in the revolutionary war and saw action at the battle of Yorktown we just graduated from Lancaster boys high in nineteen thirty seven and attended nearby Franklin Marshall when he was a member of a fraternity and played football and basketball the winters had to give up one of his passions wrestling because he was too busy working a part time jobs to help pay his tuition bill he managed to graduate though with the highest academic standing in nineteen forty one when the war broke out in Europe winters did what young men across this country did at the time he enlisted in the army he was selected to attend officer candidate school earned his commission in the summer of nineteen forty two and then volunteer to join a newly formed paratrooper unit why such hazardous duty when he was asked when he told a reporter for American history magazine I applied for the airborne because it was a new thing that looked like a challenge I always enjoyed sports and physical activity he said and there was a certain appeal to being with the best nearly five hundred officers volunteered to join that elite group of warriors only a hundred forty eight made the cut and for the hour we're gonna talk to to people who know a lot about major Dick winters and one of them were pulling audio from the past major Dick winters himself a little bit later colonel called king C. and he was a former west point military historian he just happened to co author Dick winters memoir beyond the band of brothers I want to start with the clip from some of the post production in that H. B. O. did with both Dick winters and some of his men the first voice you're gonna hear is Dick winters the other is some of his colleagues and this cuts to what in the end we're gonna be talking all about for the next hour and is the leadership characteristics character Dick winters and why men followed him and why we loved him if you're a leader you lead the way not just the only easy when you take the tough ones for leader has to understand the people of the lower standard of their needs or their desires how these things a little bit it seems like he always made the right decisions along the way he was a real soldier like some of the some of the officers I don't think I would follow them in the water but he was he was one of the best you will run into he didn't know do you have a photo not reinforced Shannon to modernise plate I don't knows about but it is but he did and by the way winters said you gotta take the tough ones and boy did he take the tough ones none tougher than his first assignment on D. day according to call king seed quote when he landed which is assembled this command it was a widespread drop the winters was able by D. day morning together twelve men he was ordered to destroy a German artillery battery it was firing on Utah beach one of the two American beaches king C. told the BBC days after winter's death it was a fifty man German battery he said the winters had twelve men and by firing maneuver by leading his men from the front he was able to knock out each of those guns on Utah beach and what a difference that made king seed explained by silencing those guns the American army suffered one hundred ninety two dead on Utah beach in sharp contrast to Omaha beach we're Americans suffered over twenty five hundred casualties in their assault on that position major winters noticed a wounded German soldiers crawling toward.

describes the difficulty in talking to civilians about what goes on in war to talk to a civilian or somebody who's never been overseas again you have to withdraw yourself because he won't know what you're talking about and you do not want to come across and through the relieve the impression that you were bragging about Friday sure sure remember and that's hard to do sure it is very very difficult and as you can see is even difficult right here today and this is major Dick winters in his early nineties and still you can hear almost tearing up winters then gave this advice for young people the important thing to keep in mind for any young and I enjoyed talking to her high school group children and we get a lot of letters as I shared with you from the students of all ages

your teeth honestly to yourself today I didn't do my best if you do that you're being honest and everything's gonna be okay winters wasn't always sure he lived through the war he told writer Stephen Ambrose that he knelt down and prayed after D. day quote somehow I managed to get home again I promised god and myself that I would find a quiet piece of land some place and spend the rest of my life in peace winters are cold after the war he found that quiet piece of land he bought a farm outside Hershey Pennsylvania where he spent the rest of his life with his bride Ethel but peace that eluded him and then he decided late in his life to tell his own story and when he submitted the final revisions of his memoir to his co author Cole king seed he had good news to report and we talked to call king seed about that he finally get Indian you're absolutely right about the peace and quiet it's very easy to a quiet achieve quiet but peace has to come from within big winters last sixty years of

"Celebrations and no better way to celebrate that meant to celebrate the life of major Dick winters by the way president John F. Kennedy once said a nation reveals itself not only by the minute produces but also by the minute honors the minute remembers here in this clip major Dick winters talks about the mentality he needed to survive and ultimately succeed in this war then you have to make up your mind that you're going to be adjusted their went through wars for harbor you make up your mind here and now for the duration baby here not just in for a year for an obligation so you're here to get a job done then you have to adjust yourself mentally and I'd like to stress that point whether you're a parachute prior to a procedure or what job you are if you join the paratroopers you have to just mentally affected you're gonna jump out of an airplane behind the enemy lines and to do that you must be in shape physically and here's winters on why being in good physical shape is a necessity for a leader unless you're in good physical shape forget being a leader it's not gonna move her got out you have to be a good physical shape to be a leader and that's so true opinion was only after he had interviewed I guess you could say thousands of servicemen because you have a he had dedicated his life interview and get numbers up all the veterans nearly five hundred officers as we had told you before tried to join that unit and again only a hundred forty eight made the cut that paratrooper unit he was a part of winter's recalled the start condition at camp tombs Georgia where he did some of his training quote there were no windows in any of the buildings in the only place with electricity was love train he recalled it was rough but you were expecting it to be rough if you're going to be in the parachute troops and what were they looking for it can't tombs he was asked we look for the ones who look like they could take it pointers explained quote when the going got tough could they stick with it we also look for the man who accepted discipline they were also looking for something else explain winters another thing we look for winters said is if the individuals was accepted by the other man demanded a lot of work to the officers by simply sizing one another up if someone couldn't be accepted by his fellow soldiers he was gone right away the men were told to leave didn't get to vote or make an appeal on this matter this was not a popularity contest here's winters on the bond of fellow soldiers in war your work in this man and this unit and you're sharing you're sure they're not hardship sure enough I thought of the job that you have to do the this bonded through growers with the people that you're working with is a closeness is somebody that isn't a part of it curtain I know I would be the folks back home can understand or appreciate to this order sure the folks back home they don't understand it because they haven't been through St that point that I can pass along with what it was obvious as the war was over and we had a lot of men aren't English girls French girls and so forth and I couldn't understand what was happening the soldiers realize that when they came back home the girls if they would make back home I would not appreciate would not understand what he'd been through and there was a bond just the fact that the girls were from England and through the bombings in the area and the hardships of rationing and so forth the folks Michael might not understand what had never never been subjected to rationing and not hardships and that's why many marriage girls from contraceptives had conquered and that's what band of brothers is really all about me in getting us to understand what that conflict was like is it didn't touch us here at home and it was all about the camaraderie these men had I don't think any movie ever got it like band of brothers did they have the time to do it by the way the movie and his life in Europe had great ups and breakdowns here's winters talking about one of the great high moments and it was as they walked through the towns of Europe experiencing liberation from German occupation as a party like you've never seen before in their lives you never see people that are happy in your life you have the feeling that they again had freedom which illustrates another hope I can never forget it I don't think we can appreciate it in this country we take great pride in the fact we have freedom of speech freedom of religion freedom from freer hearing freedom from what our freedoms these people have that denied murderer occupation German and not knowing there would ever be free again freedom is so important that we take it for granted and shouldn't be taken for granted and winters had his hand on his heart and you could tell with this he took the greatest pride he and his men free to people now to some of the low points in the lowest of the low was winters and his men were trapped in those trenches in the dead of winter surrounded by German troops they couldn't raise their heads up out of those trenches because they would have been in the sight lines the German guns so many of them froze to death but never was the thought of surrendering an option to these men the subject never came up we never talked about it we never thought about how can you you're going to be used for around putting yourself I'm talking about it and thinking about.

R. related to his doctor would be the man the true measure of a man or a woman who is the chief fame based on the sacrifice of their fellow men and women in one of winter's very last interviews public interviews and you can find it up on YouTube he was asked about what it was like adjusting to civilian life and well this holds true to soldiers today just as it did back then I look this straightened out do you think this guy you're looking up to the adjusted to this day it's a slow process I'm not very sure earlier you relive those from flashbacks so this is part of the adjusters you're still making the day a new issue they're very tough thank you recall a time when coming home and I just want to go to work for myself to get away from the family to get away by yourself basically and I'm walking down the street in Lancaster and I'm going by of whom looked to have a offense pale fronts thorough and does a kid come on the other way and this kid have a stick with him it just took Mr trump the along the fence I picked up while the gutter I thought it's just a natural reaction from what you've been going through all these years you have a machine gun fire you hit the ditch you don't care who you are you don't think you're reacting pretty recover from have slowly and it's up to you Malay sure again not only get ready to go in combat now you have to just your your still mentally to get back into civilian life there were not just a survey analyzer it's not easy knowing that was chronicled in American sniper and so that never changes coming back from seeing the things men in battle C. and having to deal with civilian life here winters describes the difficulty in talking to civilians about what goes on in war to talk to a civilian or somebody who's never been overseas again you have to withdraw yourself because he won't know what you're talking about and you do not want to come across the leave the impression that you were bragging to her not Friday sure sure remember and that's hard to do sure it's very very difficult and as you can see is even difficult right here today yeah this is major Dick winters in his early nineties and still you can hear almost tearing up winters then gave this advice for young people the important thing to keep in mind for only yelling and I enjoyed talking to her high school group children and we get a lot of letters as I shared with you from the students of all ages basically and basically I have one message to all not all the same hang tough I'm interested in hanging tough do your best every day religion scorer Jr job or wherever you are do your best everyday and you can escort you don't have to know all the answers no way to respect out of yourself just do your best to satisfy yourself some of the end of the day you can look in the mirror if you brush your teeth honestly to yourself the day I do my best if you do that you're being honest and everything is gonna be okay winters wasn't always sure he lived through the war he told writer Stephen Ambrose that he knelt down and prayed after D. day quote somehow I managed to get home again I promised god and myself that I would find a quiet piece of land someplace and spend the rest of my life in peace winters are cold after the war he found that quiet piece of land he bought a farm outside Hershey Pennsylvania where he spent the rest of his life with his bride Ethel but peace that eluded him and then he decided late in his life to tell his own story and when he submitted the final revisions of his memoir to his co author Cole king seed he had good news to report and we talked to call king seed about that it finally did Indian you're absolutely right about the peace and quiet it's very easy to a quiet achieve quiet but he'd have to come from within Vicky winters last sixty years of his life was a search for that intern he finally found finally found it in two thousand five when we submitted the manuscript of his war memoirs to the publisher we can't do it submitted on April first two thousand five I'd like to go back to Hershey Pennsylvania and I said Dick the manuscript has sent to the publication because do you need anything else from me I said absolutely not Lee what he ended up doing he was sitting in a chair he took his glasses off he put his head back in the chair close to five and he said it's over it's over and that the last time he ever spoke about World War two he wanted that story out so he could end that chapter of his life that began on D. day winters is buried next to his parents in the family plot in the town where he was born his grave is marked only Richard D. winters W. W. to one hundred and first airborne that's it he did not include the many awards he won during World War two among them the nation's second highest decoration for valor the Distinguished Service Cross for heroism on D. day but that was just like Dick winters humble in birth humble in death in the final scene of band of brothers and I defy anyone to not cry through it the real life Dick winters recalls a story that a friend of his told him about a conversation he had had with his grandson and we're gonna play that clip from band of brothers right now here's Dick winters do you remember.

"And if you haven't seen it, my goodness, you must buy it on Amazon, sit the family down and watch it. It's quite a long spell. But in the age of binge-watching there's nothing better to binge-watch then band of brothers now. We want to turn to Colonel Cole king Zied, who served in the US army for thirty years and was chief of military history at the US military academy was point. Kinks is the author of six books, including the New York Times bestseller, beyond the band of brothers. The war memoirs of major dick winters. And we spoke to him just the other day in preparation for this hour long celebration and to start things off talking about winters. You had to ask, what was d day like it was a remarkable day. Sometimes I would say Lee single, combat reveals more about the character of a nation and a generation of peace. Dick winters mission. He was second in command of easy company wants to destroy that four gun German artillery battery that was firing on Utah beach. And that was probably the most successful in dibiase landing on d day. Dick winters, a member of easy company had only twelve members of easy company when he was given mission. Normally that would be a company size mission of four about one hundred fifty era troopers so did can't scrape about, and hawk force, the not at German artillery, battery out of action, by the way, again that, that battery had around fifty men, according to dick, winters, memory, and some of the other men that survived, we talked a lot about many of the aspects of leadership with Colonel Cole king seed. And one of the dimensions was the idea of loneliness because when you watch band of brothers winters was always off by himself. He was close to the men, but he couldn't get to close before we throw to that Cole king seed clip. Here's what winter's himself had to say to American history. You said quote you maintain close relationships with your men, but not friendship, you have mutual respect for one, another yet, you have to hold yourself aloof to a degree. Because if you are too friendly it can work in a negative way. When you need to discipline, your men in leading groups, affectively you have to rise above camaraderie. So let's talk to king seat about that question was he lonely man would say, I count my close friends on one hand, I don't want anyone to know me and he talked about the command in war. He said it is a very lonely job. And it was really because of that, because the leader has to make the very get the cult decisions on which soldiers lives depend, and it's hard to make those decisions. If you get too close to the soldiers themselves. And by the way, actor, Damian Lewis did such a beautiful job capturing that loneliness. He didn't wear it on his sleeve, you never wintered or wind about it. It's just there he was you knew it, you could feel it and heard them we asked Colonel king seed. What made winter's success? What do you attribute your success? He goes, well, I don't like to talk about myself. But I think the bubbly the reason that I was so successful was I never forgot the place. I came from which was not always an officer he enlisted in the army. And so in one of his letters home to put tonic friend, he said, you know, I'm he called himself, half three and officer. Yes. But and enlisted soldier at heart. That was the essence of dick winners, as a leader in DD started as a private. How did winners balance being a leader and being one of the guys, I call it being able the ability to fly at different altitudes, you can be very tactical level with soldiers at one time, but then you have to be more a strategic level, you have be able in the willingness to make the hard decisions on which organization pens, and that's what that we end up saying with day, so he could kind of let the soldiers state let off steam, but he always had to make quick decisions to ensure that they live. What was winter style of leadership style later, ship was leadership by example, I often at. About leadership because she is office. Lii was an acknowledged that from the soldiers of AT Trump, any it was dick winters company. This is what Dixit he said leadership is very difficult to define. He went he echoed, Dwight David Eisenhower, when he said, the one quality that can be developed by studious reflection and practice is the leadership of men, and that's really the essence of dick winters. It's, it's a lonely job as we talked about in the earlier segment. But. You know, how do you know if you survive how do you, how are you? You know, if you've been a successful leader and said, all you have to do is to take a look at the eyes of the soldiers then that will next your satisfaction. It has nothing to do with the metals into chest or anything else. Make sure that, that you have done your job, and you Raval to get your soldiers back home, the most soldiers possible and again, we're talking to Colonel king seed, who is the military historian, it was point, and co-author of beyond the band of brothers. The memoir he co wrote with major dick winters. And we asked him why winters was so willing to fight down in the trenches with his men, a level that he operated in kind of technical level thing that about did he was able to associate himself with in this case, easy company. Get going said this easy company made me it brought out the very best of me is I reflect on my life after the War, I can honestly say that it has been a lifetime. Search for the men like those, I knew in easy company in World War. And then we asked him about mistakes, and how you lead without being willing to admit them winters said, listen to every time with them. Stephen Ambrose, who wrote band of brothers and Tom Hanks Spielberg with the with many chairs you certainly made a number of mistakes. He said, yes, I did. And he's and I said, give me give me an example. He said, normally when we when you attack you have like to tune would be roughly about thirty soldiers to tunes forward in one thing, and I fell into a habit. He said that I always can't I tune on the left and the second tune on the white and the third, the tune was always in the rear as a result of that fifty years after the war, there were far more survivors of the tune third Joan than the were on those who were forward. He said, I should have rotated those Jones, it wasn't a conscious thought, but I failed to rotate the units as a result of that he was very. Willing to admit that, that had a lot to do about humility. You bet humility was the watchword, the keyword understanding, the character, Richard winters. And when we come back more from Colonel king seed,.

"Celebration and no better way to celebrate that. Then to celebrate the life of major dick winters. And by the way, president John F Kennedy one said a nation reveals itself, not only by the men it produces, but also by the honors the minute remembers here in this clip major dick winters talks about the mentality. He needed to survive an ultimately succeed in this war. Have to make up your mind that you're gonna be adjusted here. The worst Pearl Harbor. You pick up your mind you're now for the duration baby here, not just in for a year for obligation. So you're here to get a job done. Then you have to just yourself, mentally and. I like to stress the point. Whether you're a parachute paratroopers are what job you are. If you joined the paratroopers, you have to just mentally to the fact that you're going to jump out of an airplane behind enemy lines. And to do that, you must be shape physically, and here's winters on why being in good physical shape isn't assess ity for a leader unless you're a good physical faith. Forget the leader, it's not gonna out you have to be good physical shape to be a leader. And that's so true. Opinion was after he had interviewed, I guess you could save thousands of servicemen because they had dedicated his life. Interview in and getting members of all the veterans nearly five hundred officers as we had told you before tried to join that unit and again, only one hundred forty eight made the cut that paratrooper unity was a part of winters recall, the star condition at camp tombs Georgia, where he did some of his training, quote, there were no windows in any of the buildings in the only place with electronics ity was latrine. He recalled. It was rough, but you are expecting it to be rough. If you're going to be in the parachute troops, and what were they looking for it camp tombs? He was asked, we look for the ones who looked like they could take winters explained quote when the going tough could they stick with it. We also look for the men who accepted discipline. They were also looking for something else explained winters. Another thing we looked for winter said is if the individuals was accepted, by the other men, the men did a lot of work for the officers by simply sizing, one another up if someone couldn't be accepted by his fellow soldiers he was gone right away. The men who were told to leave didn't get to vote or make an appeal on this matter. This was not a popularity contest. Here's winters on the bond of fellow soldiers in war here, working the men in this unit and. You're sharing sharing a hardship. And you're sure the fact that a job that you have to do. The this on you. Grows with the people that you're working with is a closeness. Somebody that isn't a part of it. Couldn't would be the folks back home understand our pre she sheet to sort of share that with the folks back home. They don't understand it because they haven't been through it. Straight that point, I can pass along this thought. It was obvious as the war was over. And we had a lot of men married, an English girls, French girls, and so forth, and I can understand that. What was happy, the soldiers realized that when they came back home? The girls that they would meet back home. Would not appreciate not understand would he'd been through and bombed just the fact that the girls were from England and through the bombings, and the and the hardships of rationing and so forth. The folks nut under had never never been subjected to rushing and not hardships. And that's why many married girl from countries that had conquered. And that's what band of brothers was really all about in the end, getting us to understand what that conflict was like, because it didn't touch us here at home. And it was all about the Camry. These men had I don't think any movie ever got it like band of brothers. Did they have the time to do it? By the way, the movie and his life in your head great ups, and great downs. Here's winters talking about one of the great high moments and it was as they walked through the towns of Europe experiencing liberation from German occupation. Party like never seen before in your life. You'd never seen people were happy and your life. The have the feeling that they again freedom, which illustrates hope can never, forget it. I don't think we can appreciate it. In this cut route, we take great pride in a frac v of freedom of speech, freedom of religion freedom from freer here freedom from what the four freedoms. These people had that t nine two. Under occupation. Of urine, and not knowing that it would ever be free again. Assume that we take it for granted and shouldn't be tipping for credit and winters had his hand on his heart, and you could tell. With this took the greatest pride. He and his men free to people. Now to some of the low points, and the lowest of the low winters and his men were trapped in those trenches in the dead of winter surrounded by German troops. They couldn't raise their heads out of those trenches, because they would have been in sight lines of German guns, so many of them froze to death. But never was the thought of surrendering option to these men. That's a subject never came up. We never talked about it. We never thought about it. How can you? If you're gonna be sit around putting yourself and talking about thinking about the first thing you're.

"So now World War. Two Korea is a very short period of time. What was the big strategic tactical or technological change? Even though it was a bit of a reversion to this horrible, sort of trench warfare. It was there wasn't that much time between these two wars, actually and a lot of they called up veterans from World War, Two and said, okay reload, we're going again, and one really interesting story is, you know, dick winters, who's the guy that's the commander of the second of the five oh, six in the band of brothers series. You've seen that, right? I have. But I don't recall his name. Okay. So he's just incredible leader of covered books about him and his book on my podcasts, and I talk about Bannon proposals because band of others is really incredible leadership story and dick winners got recalled go to. Decree. And they got to San Francisco and they said, hey, don't know what the criteria was? But it was something like, if you've done two years World War, Two step over here. And they went over there, and they said, does anyone not wanna go because you don't have to go and dictators like, I'm not going. So this is what I was thinking about when you were asking. Yeah, yeah, yeah. There's an example of a guy who's commitment in whose leadership is impeccable impeccable, and he'd come home. And I mean, he saw infinitely more infinite, we can make that work big enough more combat than I ever even came close to sing. He came home started a farm in Pennsylvania. Whatever. And started doing his thing. Karen on with his life and got recalled. And they said, hey, if you wanna go, you don't have to go home, then he did went home. So that's the way some people in. No one knows gonna say anything to dick winters ever. He died, but no one would ever question his patriotism, his willingness. Sacrifice his leadership has commitment owned everquest that anything away. And when they said, hey, you wanna go, he's not going to go home. Don't need you. So what was definitely a lot of similar things from World War, Two, and then it kinda stagnated into World, War One and now Vietnam is twenty not even twenty years later. It's basically ten fifteen years later, the and is that the introduction for Americans to guerrilla warfare. Definitely is the introduction on a large scale to guerrilla warfare. And that's what made it so challenging, we're fighting against Ason metrical situation where we're bigger, stronger more well-equipped technologically, more advanced against a photo that is inferior in all those ways technology industry capability, and we came up against someone that you how to fight against us, and figured it out, just like they'd figured out against the French. Vietnam never been taken. That's a proud history been around for thousands of years, and you've never been taken. Why is that because you know how to fight? In retrospect, aside, from not going into Vietnam at all knowing, everything. We know today and perhaps what we've learned through the next huge a symmetric war, which is the one you were a part of what is the lesson. You take back to that war if Jacko's in a time capsule and he goes back to nineteen sixty four. Yeah. These are the common lessons that everyone talks about the big thing in counter-insurgency is you have to win over the populace. And we didn't do that. We didn't do that in Vietnam. Who did that the vehicle did that the communist at that they won over the populace? And that's because they are the ones who protect you who allow you to be camouflaged who you mingle aside from winning hearts in the rebuilding. Right. Which clearly that makes sense. It seems like that's also important in combat. Yeah. A minimum they're going to passively support the insurgents which is basically what happened in Vietnam. There's passive support. The villager doesn't care villages wants to grow rice, villagers wants to raise their kids. Whatever that's village wants to do. Well, the Americans are just dropped the bomb the Americans shot. One of. Kids, the Americans this and the vehicle or coming in San. Hey, why they do this to, you will protect, you will help you in plant, these booby-traps Ross..

"Exactly. Exactly. So that's, that's the image that a lot of folks have from from pop culture who who would be your your leaders that you look to? And you say, these are the ones who, why sort of the roic leaders? I mean, dick winters. That's a fantastic example. I've covered a his books on my podcast because he's a leader that that does every one of these little nuance thing. As you can see him do it, and band of brothers is is an amazing series that really shows the nuances of his leadership. So I think that's fantastic. One of the leaders that that I always tried to emulate as a guy by the name of Colonel David Hackworth who was one of the most decorated soldiers. He served in in Korea and in Vietnam, and he wrote a book called about face which is about an eight hundred page book, and it's it's really not about leadership at all overtly, but it's one hundred percent about leadership as you read it and if you're looking for those lessons, but he was a guy that again, he bounced all these dichotomies very effectively. He was completely revered by the people that worked for him. Most of the people that he worked for loved him and love having having him on their team. However, and this is, you know, a part of the dichotomy. He's the guy that he's one of the first senior leaders in Vietnam that said, look, if we don't change the way we're fighting this war, we are not going to win and they drummed him out of the army. A in a matter of months after that, because and to me, it was him speaking the truth as he saw, which I have great respect for. So when you look at today's politics, obvious, why do for for living? And it feels extraordinarily chaotic, could feel like it's war of all against all sort of this Hobson Hobson state of nature. Do you see that as as a lack of leadership, or is it that there are too many people who think their leaders fighting with one another? I think it's a little bit of both. I think we're getting accustomed to this new world where you can get reactions on a minute by minute basis. And one of the best ways to get reactions from people is to make statements that are extreme. And so again, you know this, this new book dichotomy leadership. It's about balance. And right now I would say in politics, we don't find very much balance. We find people on both sides that are that are leaning towards the extremes all the time, and then that gets greatly amplified by the media, hell much of leadership. Involves actually having a group of people who have the same common goal because when one of the big problems that I'm seeing in our politics generally, and I think this is true, just fragmenting citing that focuses very much on the individual. I'm an individualist. I really believe that people should have the right to do essentially what they want songs. They're not harming anyone else, but it seems like the success of a team, whether it's navy, seal team or any other team relies on having the same common goal..

"And that's sort of one of the leaders job is that sort of pay attention to that? This is the idea of like I'm gonna run my car in the red until my car explodes, and then I'm going to be mad at the car. I'm gonna blame the car and the the disconnect of the and we'd like you said that this kind of the impact of the human being that that that's what leaders are supposed to do, that's their job is to, and dick winters had that. He talked about the idea of like, hey, when when somebody puts their head in their hands, that's they live physical literally showing you, hey, man, I'm I'm breaking right now and the willingness. To just say, go do it again and then get to the point. Like I can't go. We're done with you. We don't have any more use for you anymore. That's hard to comprehend. It's hard to comprehend. I I'm like I said prep, and these books is awful to read them. It's off the reading. Some of them are the quotes from the soldiers that were chosen to be the executioner site. I mean, we'll what's that? What's that? I remember I started one podcast off for that with like these soldiers were picked to go this. This kid had been in the army for a couple of weeks and he had to go shoot a deserter. That was one of his first assignments. What the hell? Yeah. So there's some kind of a some some kind of f- I, you know, do evalu- human life more now that's the question. I think the answer if you compare today compared to World War One, the answer is one hundred percent. Yes, without a doubt, one hundred percent, yes, we do. We do in the military would do in. We do everywhere. I think we absolutely do. You got a nice, long history of podcasts that are just sort of soul crushing. You know. You know you, you've, you've hit some real home, runs there with some podcasts. You're like, wow, that is that is hard. But you know what the reason that we hold human life in greater value now is because of that is because of those stories. Because this letter, I mean, there's that that that small piece of having to understand that we are here because of where we came from. We are here because of what we did and what we endured. And that's not to say we won't go back to do that again. That doesn't mean that we can't end up back in that place. But those those stories that that legacy of that just. Crazy impossible to understand how you can do that to that many people and just say, that's just how we do business. That's just what we do. We have come a long way, and I think we've moved in the right direction now. There is a piece that. When people go to war people die. Oh, yeah, you know, that's and we, we can't get to a place or to a point or to a belief in our society where that is not acceptable, that it's that is not something we're willing to have happened in order for us to be successful that that is not okay to get to point that any loss of life or any injury or any sacrifice is not okay, you we can't get to that point. So overshooting that is not good either. I wouldn't use World War One as a benchmark. You know, that's just it's not even close. But the reality is is that that's not just how war is, but that's actually necessary. And that's a as a leader. That's a huge burden. That's a huge burden. And the burden is to balance the the responsibility that you have to do everything to ensure that doesn't happen to your people knowing full well, knowing full. Well, that it will. And I'll be really dude. I'll be really honest with you. I did not. When I went to Iraq, I did not really grasp that it might happen to my guys. I just didn't, and I'm. I just didn't give it a Nuff thought that the risk was actually going to end up with me and my guys and that Chris was going to get killed. And I look back on that as a leader and I, I should have thought about that more..
