A junta shuts down a nations data networks

"On saturday. Myanmar's ministry of transport and communications directed that all mobile operators serving the country blocked the nation's data network voice and sms. services will remain available tech crunch reports. The general interdiction of data services follows earlier decisions by the country's new military government to block. I facebook and instagram and twitter. The ruling junta has sought to tamp down opportunities for mobilization of dissent and opposition since it took power in a coup last month the grey zone podcast yesterday featured an interview with g h q director jeremy fleming and general sir patrick sanders head of the. Uk's strategic command also responsible for military cyber operations in which they described britain cyber operations against isis british cyber forces disrupted the terrorist groups drone operations denied their operators mobile service and interfered with online propaganda. The campaign by britain's national cyber forces most active in two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen is sky. News says the. Uk's only publicly avowed offensive cyber operation to date the counter propaganda influence. Operation is in some ways the most interesting intrusive of the efforts fleming is quoted as saying we prevented their propaganda both through physical actions on the battlefield but also remotely getting to their servers getting to the places. They stored their material and quote the intrusion into isis networks extended to locking isis members. Out of accounts deleting or altering the group's information and taking down online posts and videos general sanders said quote. We wanted to ensure that when they tried to coordinate attacks on our forces their devices didn't work that they couldn't trust the orders that were coming to them their seniors and quote. He added that. Deception and misdirection were important ways of degrading isis combat power tactically british cyber operators said to have been working closely with allies including the us were able to block isis commanders orders from reaching subordinates. And we're also able to misdirect isis forces on the ground. In some cases sending their units into kill zones. It was general. Sanders explained a combined arms multi domain effort. The cyber operations didn't stand on their own. He said quote we wanted to deceive them and to misdirect them to make them less. Effective less cohesive and sap them morale. But you can't just do that in cyberspace. You have to coordinate and integrate that with activities that are going on on the ground whether it's from our own forces special forces and others and quote former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency. Chris crabs drew some press attention over the weekend with an interview. He gave the financial times the headline in the media outlet. Silicon is representative quote ex. Us cyber boss calls for military strikes on ransomware. Hackers it says which suggests a brace of thomas hawks prancing downtown to hit a gregor extortionists in their parents or maybe pre dawn vertical insertion of a ranger battalion to put paid to the ragnar locker gang in whatever tacky cybercafe. They're using but a close reading or actually a pretty casual reading of krebs remarks indicates that he's pretty much closer in his thinking to ghg cues fleming than he is to say. Curtis lemay or george patton. His point is that ransomware is sufficiently destructive and costly to make it worth governments wild to actively disrupt the gangs operations military cyber units like us cyber command. The uk's national cyber force have disruptive capabilities law enforcement organizations don't and it might be useful to think about how they might be used if at all there may be decisive legal objections to doing so on the other hand. There might be some legal models under which that kind of action might be legitimately organized. What if ransomware actors could be treated like pirates for example new post reports that kaspersky has discerned new activity by the crew using the silent fade. Malware silent fade is an online ad fraud operation that kaspersky has observed resurgent against victims in asia and europe. They'll be worth watching. The silent fade. Gang is thought to have been responsible for some four million dollars in fraud against facebook users. Twenty nineteen security firm checkpoints updates on iranian cyber threat actors domestic kitten and infield warns that both groups remain active mostly against dissident targets. Checkpoint calls them advanced and rights that they have a lot in common quote. Both groups have conducted long cyber attacks and intrusive surveillance campaigns which target both individuals mobile devices and personal computers. The operators of these campaigns are clearly active responsive and constantly seeking new attack vectors and techniques to ensure the longevity of their operations and quote

"I was flying. I didn't know any honestly. They make mistakes a young. Start your fault so early on. My grandmother used to record programs for us because she had television. We didn't have any on the hill on tv so she would record stuff on vhs tapes and give it to us when we come visit and so one of the things she recorded was a documentary from discovery channel on ranger school. So i got that. I watched it a thousand times and i decided probably twelve years old. Maybe that that was what i wanted to do. I wanted to go be an army ranger told my parents that and at the time i was the kid who wouldn't make his bed wrote in fall through on anything. My dad just kind of thought. Yeah i wanted right. So but i'd resolved that that's what i was gonna do so when i graduated high school i buy signed up and short set back. I met my wife my current wife there at him. We met really young at the us group. And we've been basically together ever since then were you Were you christian growing up. I mean i would imagine that influences there but as you have personal relationship with christ. Yeah i did but the older. I got the closer to the military. The less i get personally got for me. So i was saved at an early age. I believe i was seven years old. I think is if if that's the right number i'm pretty bad. Remember dates and times but definitely had a faith believed in god but wasn't always really living into that so had the moral standards and the values that i've always carried with me but having a personal relationship with christ was not always my focus so i went off into the army. When did basic training. I was in fort sill oklahoma. Because i was afford observer now to get the ranger contract. They told me. I could be a cooker for an observer. I didn't want either of those. I wanted to go infantryman. But they said we have too many of those zone. I chose forward observer. I didn't know what it was much better than choosing. It was cooks. Thank you for all you do our coaching of italian great. It's amazing that ranger battalion has their own cooks. I'm not sure if they still do back then. They did. Great guys but not for me so did basic training. I t reports still After that graduation asked my wife to marry me she said yes so we did that at downtown fort sill. Which if you've never visited fort sill. Oklahoma is great. I totally recommend find a piece of dirt. Walk out and stand on it. That's pretty much a live. Fire range basically asks you now.

"Brisket is the most delicious I have ever tasted, and I am very delighted to have Patrick Montgomery here on the show. As a former member of the first Ranger Battalion. Sergeant Patrick looks to bring the lessons learned from blood, sweat, tears and hardship, no doubt during his time in the military to his practices in agriculture. Specifically, he raises quality beef for the very same people and communities that he once served as a ranger. So with holiday meals and family dinners and gatherings up coming, I thought that you should get to know your brisket and learn about the good work going on in our country. Patrick Montgomery of Casey Cattle Company is here to dish and I'm very proud to have you. Hi, Patrick. And thank you so much for having first and foremost. Thank you for your glorious service. You're welcome. Yes. Please share your passion. Tell us your story. First. I assume you've always been a meat lover. But you Dedicated yourself to this country, and you have continued to give back through your passion for very delicious beef. You know when I was coming upon re Englishman First Ranger battalion, their decision of whether I wanted to stay in or get out. Girlfriend at the time was pretty persistent about me trying something in the civilian world. So I got out in order to pursue a career path of large animal veterinarian. I fell in love with business while going through my animal science program of the zoo. And I cannot break baby of those two passions. Was Casey Cattle Company. Um, you know, I kind of really saw deficiency in the market between and consumer and Agriculture and just kind of at that gap in knowledge between the two industries. And so, you know, I thought a cape to cattle company that was kind of the angle was due. And form and educate consumers about how their beef is actually raised. What makes it delicious? Yes. So school us, please. Let's talk cows and your ranch. The environment that the cattle are raised. It makes a very big difference Does you know there's a There's a lot of research coming out that talks about how if animals are stripped out? Or they're living food. You know that that results in a poor quality product because excess course of levels. So one of the big things we believe it trying to keep the animals a stress free as possible, so Away from cattle proud and, you know, ride hard on horseback thinks like that post the cattle prod your train the bucket, which makes moving them and sorting them an organ of a lot easier than doing other things that are a more stressful environment for the right. We'd like to say the cows are happy, right? Yeah. So interesting. Okay, let's discuss Wagyu, please, and how it relates to Kobe beef. From Japan. You're raising all Wagyu cattle. Correct? Yeah. So we do what we call one which is essentially 50% love you and 50% some kind of continental traditional breed cattle. Normally, Angus, and then we also do full blood cattle, which is 100%. Okay, so Wagyu is known for being what is considered like. American Kobe lots more marbling, much richer in flavor. Crazy great tenderness. It's the step up, no doubt, but it also gives you I think the most exceptional flavor because you get the balance of the Richness of the meat and the toothsome nous at the same time, it really can't be beat. It's pretty fantastic. You know, there's there's a lot of confusion, our marketplace different. Tamara is in fault of some of the breeders that haven't always been exactly honest about. You know what they're serving up and, you know, we've tried to be very transparent about what we're serving, You know, people get super confused about American Wild universes. Kobe Evers, Day five. The Japanese want you, You know it is the same breed that they raised in Japan. It's just a matter of how much percentage is while you tell the difference in and then obviously Kobe beef from the Kobe region of Japan, right, there's not a lot of wagyu brisket around. So we thank you. Can you talk brisket, please? The cut How best to cook it in your opinion, the many uses for dishes because you are becoming very well known and well loved for this brilliant brisket that you offer which, by the way, thank you. I had the glorious opportunity to cook and taste your brisket. And it was the best I've ever had. I appreciate that. Yes, The brisket is definitely one of our more popular cat's way. Hellhole. Brisket. No whole package has made your flat and you're pointing The way I do. It is not a smoker 12 to 14 hours because they are huge. And, uh, you know, I normally pulled apart Pull the flat point apart. I put my point that can make Burnett the way I don't prepare it. There is lots more on your website that you offer from the cow. You offer soup bones that has to make some seriously good bone broth. Patrick. It is We've tried to kill my wife and I mess around with doing Uh, beef broth in and also bone drops from, uh, you know, also the marrow bones, then the soup bones that we saw on your website and you've become rather popular. You're Wagyu Rib eye is entirely sold out. So are there more cows being raised for Ah, future Goodness, we're still we're still playing August 1st. There was like there was an article about her hot dogs Are all these cases. Dog? Yes, kind of blew up overnight. First class experience. The the brief insane that we had from the article a casualty because that was a revised so Got up on that this weekend. We should have well, well deserved attention. Really? You're giving back you work with other veterans? Correct. You're teaching them the trade and you give back in proceeds as well. You know, kind of one of the things I noticed when I got out was That transition to civilian life is pretty tough, so kind of surrounding yourself with people who have had similar Experience is when they're in the military. Just make that transition a little easier. So we help these guys up on business..

"So let me set that table for you today. Coming up. I am delighted that Micah Peters is here. You know her as a James Beard Award winning author. And if you've ever wondered, what's for dinner, we all have. The daily cannot drum. Well, we have an answer to that question. Micah has shared 365 recipes to inspire you to cook and bake taking you all throughout the year with her seasonal approach, and she's full of glorious knowledge. So stay tuned. Also, before the end of the hour. I am delighted to share this gentleman's story. It is not only a delicious one But a story of a gentleman dedicated to doing good. The Casey Cattle company is led by Patrick Montgomery, a former member of the first Ranger Battalion. And after his time in the military, he set out to better all of us by raising good cattle that make for a beautiful beef. And he will share his practices in agriculture and give you the low down on Wagyu. If you've ever wanted to know more about the Specialty beef. We are digging deep, so please do stay tuned. My goal is to satiate your appetite. So I kicked off this show with the lesson. A tutorial of sorts, and it's time to start thinking about mashed potatoes again. Oh, yes, it is. Fall braises and hearty Winter Fair Thanksgiving. Yes, they are all quickly approaching. But really, how good are your mashed potatoes while they look deceptively simple, I think Mashed potatoes are an art to master. So this is the low down on glorious spuds. And I'm going to share my best recipe with you. Compliments of my training with Wolfgang Puck. Oh, whole lot of years ago when I was 16 and stodgy sing or in turning in his restaurant called Eureka in Santa Monica, California and Oh, I miss that restaurant. It's really the recipe itself in homage to my training. Wolfgang taught me to make mashed potatoes in his exhibition kitchen at Eureka, and it was a great restaurant, but back to my mashed potato tutorial. So firstly when choosing the potato, the traditional baking potato definitely gives you the best fluffy texture. But my favorite is still the Yukon gold. I love that buttery, wonderful mouth feel. I love the yellow color, and I think they work. Equally well for mashing now. As for the cooking process, I like to start the potatoes in cold water so that they come up to temperature with the water and cook evenly. Great Chef's tip potatoes should always be started in cold water. If you are boiling, of course, and I cooked the potatoes, whole or in halves, but the largest pieces you feel comfortable with because I feel they don't absorb as much water and they retain their flavor better that way, and I like to season, the Water in quotes. I'll tell you about that in just a minute now. As for the dairy, it is most important that your dairy is warm before adding it to your mash. Did you hear that? That is probably my best chefs tip for mashed potatoes. If the dairy is warm, you resist gummy mashed potatoes and equally important, you add the butter to the potatoes. First, I'll tell you why the water content in the milk or half and half or heavy cream or A combination thereof that you choose to use combines with the starch molecules in the potato, which tends to make the potatoes gluey. But when you add the butter first, it coats the starch in the potatoes, and it results in silkier mashed potatoes and always use really good. Unsalted butter, please, for the best flavor when it comes to texture. I like mine to be rich and perfectly smooth and creamy, with plenty of butter and heavy cream. I believe in Everything in moderation, and you're not going to eat the whole pot, of course, but somewhere between a dish on its own in a sauce, I think mashed potatoes should have the consistency of pudding and a food mill or a Reiser is best for creating the ultimate texture. Now a potato masher in some serious elbow grease works too, as does a stand mixer on low speed, although some great chefs will disagree, But please and I beg of you. Please, Please, Please do not. I repeat, do Not use your food processor you are guaranteed to over mix and get gummy mashed potatoes. So some chefs and culinary aficionados will tell you that smooth mashed potatoes Khun B. A bit well, boring. You can leave the skins on. If you choose. You will get rustic potatoes that reflect with a little bit of texture. If you use red potatoes, they have great color. But I think pure goodness. Mashed potatoes are definitely Creaming color and smooth. Now you can make your mashed potatoes in advance of serving great restaurant trick. If it's just an hour or so you put the finished mashed potatoes in a large glass mixing bowl while they're still hot, and you cover them with plastic wrap, and I'll put a pad of butter right on the top just to keep a skin from forming because as it melts sort of coats once again. With a thin fat layer on the surface. Now you place that glass bowl over a pot of very gently simmering water. It's a water bath, and you keep the mashed potatoes warm and they'll stay an hour an hour and a half or so, and it's a great trick for Thanksgiving. Of course. Now, if you've made mashed potatoes and refrigerated them because you're cooking for a crowd and need to cook in advance The best way to reheat them is to place them in a lo of in in the pot that you stored them in the refrigerator in. I keep them covered with a lid and it takes about 20 to 30 minutes. You may need to add a little bit more warm milk or cream Remember, please make it warm to better the texture But really, Ah, Cool oven. Say 3 25 to reheat mashed potatoes from cold or refrigerated. That is is the best way. Now, If you're looking for a shortcut to mash potatoes, you can roast baby potatoes with their skins at 400 or even 425 degrees. I believe the higher the better so that you get the blister. Crispy, delicious skins, and then you can smash them and stir in a dollop of creme, fresh and a bit of cream or milk and a handful of chopped herbs and you get this really rustic side dish for dinner. Let's say Wednesday night without all the fuss of perfect mashed potatoes, of course, But there is always the ultimate recipe. So as promised, my incredibly smooth, flavorful mashed potatoes. They're still my favorite taught by Wolfgang Puck to throw peeled garlic cloves into the water when cooking the potatoes. So when I alluded to seasoning earlier, yes, season the water with salt because that makes the potatoes taste good, and we want a season every level or every step of the process. But throw in raw, peeled garlic clothes to the water, and you get this subtle garlic flavor that permeates beautifully..

"Army veteran Mitch Monan We've never met before, even though we live in the same community, But we're both airborne Rangers. So our brothers so welcome to front lines of freedom, bro. Come on, Dylan. Thank you very much Pleasure to be with you today, which tell us about your time in service. When And why did you join the Army? You had to volunteer for Airborne Ranger. How that go? Actually, my military service started in a different branch. I went to college on a Naval ROTC scholarship. I was absolutely child and wanted to fly at fourteen's off a carrier. Gave up my scholarship after my sophomore year to pursue a career in acting in New York City, and that was the one time I truly thought my dad was going to kill me when I shared that little bit of news with him. So I dropped my scholarship, moved to New York City and threw a whole bunch of really, really bad decisions ended up in Denver, Colorado, a alcoholic drug addict homeless. Nobody that I knew would stand still long enough to hear my need anymore. So Decided I needed to do something dramatic. Got myself checked into a rehab center got cleaned up, trained for six months. And I knew that I needed to find out exactly who I was. And I suspected that there were some men in Ranger battalion that would share that with me. So I joined the Army in May of 1990. Went through basic and a thief or bending school for wayward boys and write from there to airborne school right from there to a Ranger Indoctrination program and then to first Ranger battalion at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Georgia. That's not your typical story. But it certainly is a story that makes sense. If people find themselves down and out and want to do something you can either take charge of your life or you can sit around and whine and wait for somebody to help you, right. You're exactly right. And it was. I had a brother in law who was in third range bat, and I had always admired what that took. I really didn't really have a whole bunch of Ah, clear understanding of what that meant. A lot of research before I joined and went down to the recruiter and as recruiters are want to do, and I know no shame if you were a recruiter, but they've got a job to do. They've got slots to fill. So this guy did everything in his power to slot me into a bunch of different places. And I said, Look, I've got a really thick book. I'm just going to sit out here in your waiting room till you get me a Ranger contract because that's all I'm gonna do, and it took him a couple hours, but he shook one loose. And I truly enjoyed it. Just an incredible experience the professionalism. The dedication never ceases to amaze me. Some of the comments that I see in today's social media posts the incredible misunderstanding people have about the quality of the men and women that raised their hand in and don the uniform swear that oath. How long did you serve on active duty in the Army? A search for four years. Did you deploy it all? Did not. We just come from Grenada just came off Panama. So we knew that you know, with the exception of 30 divisions of T 80 two's coming through the Fulda gap, we weren't gonna be part of that fight. But we were certainly going to be the tip of the spear in any of the actions that we had seen recently. I knew that certainly, that possibility was their desert storm had just kicked off. We had jumped in to a training mission down it Taylor Drop zone in Fort Stewart. They rounded us backup, got us on a bus and said boys were going and we got back to the post and got everything loaded up and they stood us back down. And they did that. Probably five or six times, But we have never ended up going. One company from First Ranger Battalion ended up in the sand playing around a little bit, but I really didn't do much there anyway. So Truly just I stand in all those men and women that do it. Now that joined now knowing that they are going to deploy their going into harm's way, That is something that is just just amazes me and truly makes me proud to be a part of this country. Mitch. I could not agree with you more. This is Colonel Danny. Gillerman. Frontlines of freedom. We're talking with army that Mitch McCullen Mitch. Then you got out. What do you do? And what are you doing now? Ranger skill sets is relatively specialized. There aren't a whole bunch of civilian applications for that one offer for a for a mercenary. Ah, jaunt over in Chad. Gentlemen, making the offer. The money was great. I said you always will want to keep it least one round for yourself on the event. You're you're captured, so I passed on that one. By that point in time, I would admit of an incredible woman in Savannah, Georgia, and I had already made the decision that this was going to be the woman with whom I spent my life. So herring off to parts unknown and placing myself in that kind of danger wasn't really in the plans. I had sold cars for a brief period time before my Army service. I thought I could do that. So I began selling Toyota's. It's Amanda Toyota, Savannah, Georgia and spent the next 25 years in automotive retail enjoyed it very, very much. Some places a little better someplace is a little worse. But in generally AA group of AH, characters would be a good way to put that, but it was It was a good business and did that for 25 years until I just left. That industry back in January to join my brothers and my father in the family business, which is furniture, retail. Okay, that makes sense. And you when I say you, I think I'm in your business. You have decided to sponsor an event honoring veterans in our community. Listeners..

"I guess there is that right. Yeah so now. Well first of all tell people you were sniper army. I was I was in First Ranger Battalion. Yeah it was a great time wonderful experience. Lots of good training deployed a couple of times and came back thankfully with my life and all my limbs and decided it was time to leave. All the party was still fun and the rest of history. Yeah then of course. You've done an awful lot of long-range shooting. You've taught a lot of long range shooting. You're Kinda the timing was perfect with people. Citizens civilians being very interested these days in the minutia of hitting a target along rains these days. That's true very fortuitous timing. I mean I think you and I think I met maybe when I was at the. Nfl stayed in the firearms industry. Even though I became an attorney and realized that I still love teaching the sniper instructor and I saw as it was taking off that way too many people including today but especially five six seven years ago. We're making it sound harder than it was. I suspect to make themselves seem cooler. Where's your plan? Oh it's so complicated. And what I do is a spin his way. Virtually that way so therefore I gotta do this like guys yeah. The spin of the Earth technically does matter when you're shooting far enough for right now. How `Bout we just work on getting good at using a rifle and so I took approach on. It can't be complicated. Let's not worry about that yet. Anybody could do this. Let's go and I'm glad I did. Because that seemed to have worked out it was received well either videos or my book or things like that but you could charge more if you make. It really sound hard. That's true I mean it's the opposite what everyone accent. I let people down if I meet somebody in an event like. Oh Wow. You're this guy used to do this and I thought that hard I do this. What's the shot? I don't know just GonNa go the opposite direction. I really want more people in the sport so I love doing. I love what the and by the way. I'm so glad you're everywhere. I was listening to your list of everywhere I can find you and it's almost exhausting. Just hearing all the places. This is excellent. Take a lot to bring people to shooting and the Plus one initiative from the. Nsf is my favorite thing they're doing about going to the range and bringing someone new with me every time. I go just to get them to love it too. It's funny for twenty five years on the radio. I've been people say you're going to do with the second minister. Take somebody's shooting. Invite somebody to teach them how to shoot. Take them out the first time because if you make it easy and you mix you guarantee success. They will shoot and then they will turn around and look at. You had this big smile and they're going to say. Can I do it again? And at that point you got the right people to bring good ear protection. If you have a sound suppressor a twenty to bring one right bring a cooler listen cold drinks and shoot for about twenty or thirty minutes and then call it a day off a lot of fun and they wanna come back and do again. Don't bring out your biggest hand cannon. 'cause you think it's funny though? That's that's just mean and it's actually counterproductive. Hey Ryan I'm going to do something unusual. We're gonNA take a break. We'll come back because I wanNA talk about this new forty four seventy three form because I think there are things that people need to know about it.

"It's just a sock. That's all I'm thinking though. Eighty three to you had a bunch of Vietnam Guy. Never mind still had not only Grenada. Damn you guys had a lot of Phnom guys in when I got to the teams but you know it had been twenty years right so there's a lot of guys that retired at twenty guys that just got out after whatever. They did three tours in Vietnam but for you eighty three right. Yeah they were matter of fact Even when I went to the SF course they were thick oh how Vietnam that's going through the SF course. Oh going through it day. They were thick and then when I got to a team and I group You know my teams are was one seventy third guy would Vietnam and they were. They were a dime a dozen. I mean you had all of the command were Vietnam were. Nco's you know they were Vietnam. Sevens and above they were all Vietnam vets. So how long did it take you to recover from the toe? Jumper scenario happened in October and I finished jump school a couple of months later in February. So you recovered and then went back to Joe Joe School. N- no no that's when I ended jumps go yes. I recovered and finished. School ended. February ish yeah and you had to get surgery right and it was a mess because I slid by seven half. It wasn't like it separated from all the candidate and it's split by behalf so they had to salvage it so it was about as big as the way explained to me is a big as round as a pencil. So you could imagine the amount of strength that you lose you know and you don't know how much you rely on a bicep when it's when it has to work in compound with the most for instance doing pull ups because when I got to the Q. Course so now. You're starting all the freaking screaming and yelling and sleep deprivation food deprivation all over all over. You just finished it but now you're doing more of it. Now you back the street from Jump School Yoku Yep matter of fact but Yep right to and I started the course. My nineteenth birthday march yesterday was my birthday March. Fifth Nineteen eighty-four started the Q. Course and how? Much support and In chemical I face when they weren't screaming and yelling you doing classes patrolling in Land Navin survival and all this stuff And you're able to get hot a one hot meal a day if you can do ten pull ups with your kid on and climbed the rope your kid on and most everybody was doing that. I wasn't doing 'cause I had no BICEP now. This hurt my pride because I'm fit. You know I mean I was pull up master but I just finished all these months in hospital to hadn't done any PD. Nothing you know So I had to get. I had to get back into shape while I was getting back into shape your during the training process I had. I had to get into shape because I was getting those hot rations and I did. It took a while but I got those things. And how long is the course for me? It was a long time. It was some of it. Depends on what your MOS is like your second phase. And I don't know how they run it now as far as like phases go so there's a first phase which has all the basic skills your land nab your survival your Patrolling all your repelling. All all that stuff you know and And get yelled at you. Know the first phase. Just sucks just just a big suck fasteners classes in between sucking second-phase depends on what your specialty so And you are echo right. Why Started Weapons Guy Okay? So I went to the Q. Courses Weapons I had later. Reclassified Echoes And then the third phase. Which is you know. Big Field Exercise Doing like your fades in your uw and all that the the The traditional special forces tasks so but yeah I I I failed out of first phase and it was I failed. I I feel survival and I face now I was. Sf Baby keep and the senior guys did not dig that there were privates going through the Q. Course there was some animosity then wrote they. They were digging that Shit at all. They were keepers of the crypt. You know survivor was cool. And I don't think they run it the same way anymore. I'm not even sure they do it all but back then it was six days. You got no food. They send you they they drop you off an area of like your national forest and they give you one ration for those six days and it's either a live chicken or live rabbit now prior to getting you learn all craft stuff and everything you know how to make fire how to kill stuff all this stuff and then within six days you have you have a list of twenty two things you have to accomplish and a Lotta easy you know got to build this massive signal. You got to build a shelter. You've got to keep a fire going twenty four seven. You gotta find water filter water. You know just a lot of things But I'M GONNA try to cut this one just a little short but I was. I was thriving and survive. I was kicking ass because I did a lot of it as a kid running around the woods fishing and stuff like that so I was crushing. It and I found a pond that was within the confines of my blue. Because they they told you you know. Here's where you are. You could only move this amount this radius. You know you can't go. Forget what it was but within the confines of my boundary. I found a little pond was right on the edge of it. Well there's Pon people fish where people fish people throw trash insure shit up camping spot and I found trash Yodel rappers and stuff but a little remnants of chocolate and a thou- fishing line in the tree in the trees guys were cast in climbing trees and pull and meticulously pulled out all these these nice long strings of of good fishing line. Bobber hooks all this stuff and as I'm looking around this camp say I see a beer cans and up on a log and I go over. I feel it and I go home and there's a beard. There's something here smelling it so I cut the top open with my knife and sure enough. You know it's like two full beard and his bugs on Chug this thing. Then I go. Fishing and a stringer load of these. Massive Blue Gills stringer load. I mean like sustenance. Like I'm going to get full today now when you when I went back to my campsite priorities. Start over again. Get you fire. Go and make sure you know. Everything's squared away because the tax or the instructors combine every night to check on. You make sure you're alive and they read your lock. 'cause you log what you did during the day. And he's looking at my stringer fishing. I got some smoking you know. He's like what in the hell I got all these fish and Blah Blah Blah and and and I was found That worms are when you're hungry. They are good and if you cook them. There's just food just food. You Cook them in a little bit of water and you can't team cup. There's nothing freaking gross about him and they are good so I was down only warm but all this fish smoking it day. Three chicken just walk. I gotTa tied up with a little piece of a good at five fifty. Yeah he's like my buddy that was part the task. I had to kill them eventually because. That was one the checklist but I was saving for a rainy day. But the instructors reading my log and he goes what about a beer and like Oh. Yeah yes I founded BUBBA and this chicken Shit motherfucker pulls out his wall and pulls out a card and he goes. You HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT. Anything you say. Can he read me my rights bro? Because you know why because I was drinking beer duty to this survival bro. He was pissed that I was surviving private right and it was a private so that was the ten points so you have there. Was this point system a already lost a bunch of points just doing dumb shit but that was my last ten points. I had to go. They lobby to because I. This is the last thing you do and I I my socks man. It sucks it sucks. I remember patrolling being so cold and sleep-deprived deprived. I pissed myself like thirty three percent security. I mean and so now I have to do this all over again. I face but that that was a story of my life in the military. And that's the kind of thing though like you were saying earlier. That's the kind of thing that gets people's heads because they know what they say. The I'm not doing all this and I made it this far. Now you're gonNa tell you guys are stupid. I want to be a part of this camp of people that are assholes not happening. Yeah your head for shoes very easy when I left Camp Nicole and went back to Fort Bragg and got hot chow whole food and me and a shower to go. Yeah this is does is comfort here. This is where I wanNA stay. There's that point where you you except you know being mediocre where I could see it and I was like no no fucking way. I want that. So bad I want that green beret. So bad really. Want that and they're giving me the opportunity because they'd have to. They could have said. Fuck you give it to me hell. Yeah Man. I took dash it. Man Did the same thing with combat school. And when when did you go to combat school was already at a group? Yeah so I was in first coop before you there. What was the rest of you know the Q? Rescue courses did you. Did you have to language back then? Nope back then no language. We did that when we got to group got it Yep so the rest of it just kind of it sucked because you because you need some experience you needed to know how to write an operations order and you need to know what you know. Five point content plan wasn't pace report and Okocha and all those acronyms. You don't have any of that you guys who are coming. And they've had eighty second eighty second airborne background rangers. I mean they're actually squared away. Squad leaders yes minimum. They knew the ranger handbook. You know by heart inside out I do none of that shit none of none of it so thankfully there was a staff sergeant e seven who saw me and wet. There's something about you and they kind of took on the responsibilities mentor and I. I jumped on Hong out with those guys. You know these guys were like First Ranger Battalion. Eighty second Arab. They were hardened input reviews for like six years already. They knew all that shit all of it because with there's no way there's no way I would made no freaking way You just don't have you don't have frequent sense and you gotta know. There comes a time when you're going through training like that where you gotTa know what who am I going to align myself with? Who is it that I'm going to align myself with an and I can't look like Shit head? I gotTa make sure that I've never laid out a uniform because otherwise he squared away soldiers. They're not GonNa want me to hang out with them if I'm just some of Shit Who's literally strap hanging onto them? I want them to want me to hang out with them so I made that happen by being a work ethic you know volunteer for the duties out in the field. That kind of Fisher Because nobody wants to volunteer. You know when you're on patrol. Nobody wants volunteer. When you're patrolling and somebody says hey we need to build this or Go on this reconnaissance but I could stay here in a patrol base so volunteer for everyone of those things. But I learned a lot on those two because I'm with some infantry bad dude some grunt and You know he's teaching me along the way just own JT. So I made it by the skin of my teeth. I would say that training I did not graduate is honor graduate or anything like that down the road I did. I did very well at different schools but Well it's like that thing where the kids in school that got held back a year you know and they they do..

"This episode. We're GONNA do something a little unique. We are invited into Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment. And we've got some really cool guys sitting at the table and pause joining me on this episode and I guess and I think it'd be really nice for us to dive into some of the things that we get in terms of questions I know you guys do in terms of social media and Such where people have the opportunity to reach out to you about what is it like. How do I get in all those types of things so I want to start first? Maybe with you guys introducing yourself. Good Morning I'm captain young on the Regimental Recruiting Detachment. No I see and I manage a twelve man team that is stationed around the United States. I've got a few of those members here with me today. Basically I'm the manager of a twelve person unit within the Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment composed of active duty Rangers who recruit and serve as the conduit between volunteers off off. What we know. Is the street as well as inservice volunteers who all want to come to the Seventy Fifth Ranger Regiment? So I've got a couple of them here with me today and they're going to introduce themselves. Explain our mission and exactly what it is. We DO STAR. First Class Bishop on the recruiting NCO SC Work alongside with captain. Young is generally for us Work with my recruiting Illinois. Is We have them stationed at six locations throughout the world and what we do. Is We go all the it locations? We're talking to those individuals interested kind of letting them see the process in order to come to the same Fifth Ranger Regiment. And then we're also recruiting those inservice individuals. So that's going to be Steph. Aren't anything's GonNa talk a little bit later. And he's kind of helping with that process okay. I'm just curious for the both of you guys. If you guys can give it a little bit of your background as to how it is that you even arrived here. I know that there are many different avenues. that we're going to talk about for people getting into the regiment. What was the row Kinda? Give me an idea for the both of you guys. Okay yeah so I came in as a eleven bravo or eleven x Ray. I came with option forty contract and what I did was I went to. My recruiter told him wanting to be ranger? Show Me Love and Bravo's eleven next series. It was like that's what I WANNA do. Do you really have a good idea of what the Rangers were? But I knew they cool guys. I wanted to do that. So when had signed up for that? And then from that process I'm GonNA end to Osa. Went to the rip at that time so the ranger indoctrination program which is now the ranger. Assessment Selection Program Back then it was a four week process. Kind of went through that graduated went to My Ghanaian Battalion. Okay and you ended up at Third. Bat is over at third bed. I was there sobbing in eleven and a half years now spent majority of my time there before I came over to over to RSD as Aaron Co and then now working as a recurring attachment. What I find so fascinating about that. Is that lease back in the day. And I think it's still pretty true. That two years is about. The average are three years for guys being in regiment. And one of the battalions or and so when I meet people that have been ten. Eleven fifteen years blows my mind. Yes kinda Kinda the perk of being here in the regiment to where we get that stability and we kind of settle down in one location and you get grow with the same guys Just Work Year Round. So yeah yeah very cool and you you sort of have a similar story. Right Start Tagami. You're launching introduce yourself yummy. I am the four banning liaison for the recruiting attachment My principal duties as the banning liaison or to go to each infantry one station unit training company and conduct briefs and then cast screen All those soldiers in that company figure out who wants to go to the Ranger Regiment provide them a volunteer statement And give them the opportunity to volunteer to attend RASP. I also do the same process with every airborne. School Company So Infantry Oh sit and airborne school company every Class I conduct briefs take volunteers and get them assignments to its end. Ask them the opportunity to join the Ranger Regiment So like sorry Bishop I I joined the Ranger Regiment with an option forty contract The I kind of had the benefit of having a close childhood friend. He spent four or five years in First Ranger Battalion. So before I was even in the Army I had a pretty good idea of what the arrangement was about. And what made them different than the rest of the military so coming tonight? A good what I was getting into account the challenges is GONNA face Along with that relative who's also in the ranger admit So I went to basic airborne rasp with assigned a Third Ranger Battalion Kind of similar aren't Bishop. I haven't been in quite as long but in about nine years but I spent almost eight years in the same platoon This is the first job I've had in the army Outside of the scene that is assigned to and I I graduated from Rasp so it's pretty equal opportunity. Yeah that's again. That's pretty rare that you get to do that. It's funny because now you're doing you're the first ranger I met you know your counterpart again like fifteen sixteen years ago now and I was in school and I went with the ranger. Mine to a writ brief rasp breeding. I didn't want to go. I had orders to Italy and I thought that's going to be real cool but my buddy couldn't go without his battle buddy so I'm sailing chair and so he's just like you showed some Videos that people on dirt bikes and people jumping out of airplanes and stuff like that and I never made it to Italy. I just ran down the street to rip and DOC so change in lives man. Yeah I mean it's a it's a cool opportunity it's I think the real goal of of the job like from a broad spectrum standpoint is not trying to force kids. Devante here but you know somebody who's in airborne school and they're gonNa go to. What seems like a really cool installation which probably is going to Vicenza with the one. Seventy third super co opportunity but A lot of them. Just don't know that there's another opportunity right down the road or RASP that it'll be very different and probably a little bit more difficult but Equally cool probably cooler depending on who you ask so just trying to like. Get the word out that It's even available to them. Yeah no I think. That's absolutely crucial. Because I was looking back I remember. I didn't even know what a ranger was. I just knew they were cool guys and they have special hat and they kicked a bunch ass. And you know I didn't know how to get there. I didn't know if it was an option to me if I had to go to my gaining unit I or whatever so before we get to certain Anderson. I want to go back to captain. Young because captain is being an officer how was it that you came into the pipeline yourself so unlike these two fine regency owes it took me about seven and a half years to get to the Ranger Regiment? So back in two thousand eleven. I graduated in commission from Indiana University. I was in. Rotc Grad Reserve Officer Training Corps Grad I went to infantry basic officer leader course ranger school as a platoon leader in one hundred and I and a company commander in the eighty second and finally applied and very grateful to to gain acceptances organization. So I if you're an officer you can apply a number of different windows within your career from from zero years to twenty years in service and essentially get hired. Now you were a first lieutenant when you came in or were you already a captain. At that time I was a second lieutenant when I commend you. Okay yes and I reached the the regiment as a captain. Okay See that's new to me as well. I always thought that first lieutenants were typically the the way in not not beyond that correct so You can apply as a First Lieutenant. Typically after about a year with your first unit or duty station reason we do that as Allow some maturity experience on the job as a I attended as well as an officer evaluation report once we receive that there's a number of different documents and requirements That coalesce to form a full application and then we determine if that particular candidate is a good fit for the regiment will onboard them through Rask's to which stands for Ranger Assessment and selection program too. It's a three week program for e six to eight and Oh twos to threes and even fours. Which is I threw majors. I'm glad you mentioned that because those individuals who are on active duty right now that may be looking either officer and enlisted and they be thinking. Okay I'm too far removed to be able to get into regiment. You know that was something I wanted to do when I was a young guy. Now I'm an east six. I can't do that you know. Yeah the answer is yeah. You can't absolutely not and they should not De-select themselves allow us to do that and allow us to train you and determine if you're going to be a good fit. Yeah I knew I remember back in the day. The pipeline for a lot of first lieutenant even coming in was If you were a second lieutenant the best way to do it was to go over to Korea that timeframe and get your First Lieutenant in the regiment really at that time frame and Tracy may remember really liked I lieutenants coming in with Korean experience because you are on the DMZ. You know you you have the option to to really see more of what it would be like and you know so. It's really cool now. That here all of this because I think it's much different or I just wasn't you know aware of that information so I appreciate you sharing. That started Anderson. Not Forget you step arson. I've worked here at Fort Benning. I'm an in service recruiter. I basically answer most if not all emails that come into us. I've been in Ranger Regiment. My entire career which I went Option forty eleven axe back in two thousand eight and Went Oh set airborne than rip than Came to first battalion and I was there until two thousand seventeen and came up here to be recruited. So when you year recruiter you're not seventy nine. You'RE NOT A or you're not you didn't go to use direct and get the badge and all that then no. I'm still eleven bravo right now. Okay see people might hear that and they go. Gosh Sam Start Anderson. He's a recruiter. I just wanted to clarify one of the good guys. But let's rewind now that we're talking about that and go back to you know use a wreck so a lot of people are not again really sure if this is something that they want to do if they are they go down to the recruiter and they say hey. Listen I've heard about this thing called option forty or they may say it'd be a regiment Being Regiment and I was. I was on the recruiting side. I was on the bad guy side. So you know we knew that when you went down to maps that it was going to be the guidance counselor after you made it to the adds value made it to the physical. You're going to sit down with the guidance counselor and you're going to get the options laid out as what in. West is Uber Qualified. For you know based on your green color blindness and hearing and everything else that went into your physical And if the individual didn't know to ask for option forty there may not because they they may be looking at specific. Mos The needs of the army at that time for him. That's going to be the first pitch they're going to lay on them and then the second pitch is going to be. Maybe what you want So what I tell people is that. Listen if you don't see the option available and that's something you're dead set on then go back. You don't have to enlist that very first time and this is not something you guys got to answer just putting that out there for the people who are listening who may be interested. Go Back Down to the maps you know. Second time third time when the option forty may not be available. Or we're going to talk about other routes still may lead to that same path that they may not be familiar with. So let's say you get option. Forty any come in. What does that really guaranteeing individual coming in with an option forty contract so you option forty contracts guarantee you the chance to actually come to rest so anyone who doesn't have that they're Gonna. They're GONNA go through. They have an option for contract will go airborne school then go to their unit within the army That option forty. That's guaranteeing you the chance to come to the Ranger Assessment Selection.

"A greeting from the from us some of the home of the second biggest Saint Patrick's day parade in America as well as of the first ranger battalion Marco was yeah I have to keep both hands on the wheel when you're such a good hosting because these one liners spring forth of your like a fountain have a trouble keeping the car on the road okay well we don't want any of that on Christmas Eve that would be no that's sad what's so what's on your mind today bill well I was worried about the you know that when this impeachment thing where they're trying another impeachment process I think mark that they're terrified with the roots Darth Vader Ginsburg with one foot in the grave and another on a banana peel in the days probably going to have at least one or two more appointments to the Supreme Court I think they're horrified about that and they want to well make this illegitimate the president so they won't have to go through them the voting process what do you think well I would say well to some roof paid agains bag is indestructible I think she's well these to get a live to a hundred and twenty eight something people will tell you I mean you've got a bad look at it from our point of view she picks up reads the news by doesn't matter whether it's left or right liberals are saying UConn retire you got to hang in there forever is that everyone else is speculating on how sick she's getting she's a destructible but in the event that any opening did a car on the Supreme Court the thing about Mitch McConnell is he's a pro says guy and he's not gonna let even if there were a Senate trial and all the rest result gonna let anything delay in him getting the other business of the Senate done I I mean I do actually think that they they do the Democrats of trying to basically ton impeachment in the equivalent of into the equivalent of an unindicted co conspirator in in judicial times you know basically they're saying we we put it we we put a black mark on you but we're not gonna take it to court because for whatever reason we don't think it's my gonna get anywhere that and and I I think that hoping I mean something incredible is going to happen in November eight which is that for the first time Andrew Johnson was impeached and then didn't get the nomination Richard Nixon they started the business he resigned before he could be impeached Bill Clinton was already in his second term and a lame duck by the time the Senate refused to remove him from office the poems gonna do something that seven gonna be done he's gonna run as a supposedly impeach president and win reelection and then the Democrats again impeach him all over again I'm not sure just sat and that's the way it's gonna be and Mitch McConnell will say with you guys in the house of the kiddie table in the house can play along with that and have all the fun and games but we here in the Senate again do the grown up stuff and carrying on carry on confirming judges that's my that's my view of IT bell but we'll we'll see I mean everyone says Nancy is a genius so she wouldn't be doing something so obviously idiotic if there wasn't some move seven or eight pieces down the chutes and ladders board where something brilliant is going to happen I don't know I think she's a shooting without a script as said Georgia's councilman said after the Germans invaded the Soviet Union will say about that but Mary merry Christmas to you bill thank you for calling for beautiful Savannah when I was six I always like has a Savannah because it actually is like the song a lot of places the the issue of foreign and you learn about American sit is from the songs and always like the the songs when you get to them Hey let's make it two bills for one let's get a bill in buffalo New York City which we Ontarians well no because we look across the Niagara river added bill what's on your mind today mark thanks to you I am simply having a wonderful Christmas stance really very good I must mention that to pull but Conde that's that's excellent okay what else you got that so little for full act yeah I think the problem is the Democrats are scared that American voters are going to interfere in the twenty twenty election and so there needs to be yes there needs to be an investigation to find out if anyone in the Democratic Party has ties to America no you don't go any further bells you you would today I had was clothes when she said you could vote your way into socialism but you have to shoot your way out of it that was I thought I was the best line the today but the you'll lie Democrats are worried that Americans might interfere with the twenty twelve election that is brilliant that is absolutely terrific at Bellevue when the line of that I have to say it was guest hosting off the Boxing Day who's guess socio Christmas bag we gotta get bail and and that's why the line I don't I we might have shot is bowl there and that's it and he's got nothing to go the full three hour distance but that is a brilliant allied take a bow a bill from buffalo full of the line all of the day thank you very much bill merry Christmas to you Christmas I had another thing for you but I don't you can get

"And that's one of the things we definitely want to highlight today. Yeah. I'll Itam explain how I was the silver spoon. White-collar, dude. Who sat at a desk all day. Just like the civil war civil war. Yeah. Just said it's cut from the same claw just different jobs, different squadrons. Same mission. Same matatus same focus in guys night unit from top to bottom are all top notch. You know, there's always a bad, apple everywhere. But I mean, if you had a bad apple rather have one in that unit. You know, and guys are all working for the same in-state same goal with the same motivation all the time. And now you originally came into the army what underage your contractor was that something that you ended up doing later on. Because I understand you end up going to I read your bat. Yep. So back in eighty seven when I graduated from high school, I was graduating. I wasn't sure what it was that wanted to do. And I had heard about this crazy thing called ranger in. And I decided to give it a shot, and I loved what I was doing ended up extending there for a couple of different schools. You know, did did five years from eighty seven to ninety two all down at first battalion in savannah, I think are you in all al-matar from there, also, Tom. No, I get a lot of that. Hey, rains, your buddy. I'm like, no, no, no, no not gonna get dimed out for that. I did not see. But it it's interesting because I can you know, unlike most men, I can find you a very particular plot of land. There's a piece of red clay in Fort Benning, Georgia where the back then it was called rip ranger indoctrination program where we they smoked us. No. Yeah. And there and nothing will ever grow there because it's it's littered with broken dreams, like just broken young men who gave up on their dream, and I can walk to that piece plot of land and stand there and say this is at eighteen years old where at where I decided to become a man. I mean, there's no there's no question about it. And at the end of five years as Tom and I were kind of joking. It was what what to do next. This is something I wanna make a lifelong career. What is it? I want to do I went off to college and explored college for a few years, recognizing I truly missed the life. And then came back in this time as a commissioned officer working at second ranger battalion at fort Lewis, and and then. When special forces from there, and it truly became my profession more than just kind of an exciting journey as young man. So what did you think about the differences between the first and second then because you know, this totally different locations everybody. Yeah. Yeah. That's a good question. And and and so the difficulty in answering that question was there was also a time lag. So when I when I joined we were we were Vietnam era equipment Vietnam era tactics. All we did was humping the jungle. And and the the mission was getting to the objective. You know, like the action on the objective was nothing. It was getting there, you know. And the it was it was very modernized when mcchrystal and start major hall took over sergeant major major hall was the regimental commander, you know, in the late nineties. I think he took over ninety seven he was my first sergeant back in the eighties. So you can you can see that difference. So it was a whole different kind of mentality on modernizing the the the ranger. I think as Tom could talk about to the blending of those missions in Somalia where the Rangers recognized, you know, what tactics worked didn't work and how we needed to bring modern equipment in into the ranger. Agents. So there was that difference. But I also go back to I don't know if this is a urban legend or not, but I was told that when the two ranger battalions were created they took the old ranger companies. And those guys I had served in Vietnam. And they and they built the first ranger battalion. And they more of these ler skies in these SF oriented guys, and they made the second ranger battalion..

"And and here's the deal if if when you walked into get a tattoo from red if you brought into a little league, Luke cooler with a six pack. He give you discount. There you go because he drink a six pack while he was can you imagine a guy drinking beer while given tattooed today? You never see that. You can't you can't have when you're getting a tattoo this guy give it to you hammer. And this guy had. There were no gloves. Nobody was using gloves. Right. The it was it was a totally different animal. And that's it using that it's kind of an analogy for what we've seen jitsu again tattoos become mainstream. So more people are more people getting them more people are giving him because jitsu is become mainstream. More people are seeking it out. So in towns, and this is one thing that I set in the podcast last episode, and I found in researching the Email questions that I got you write the name of any town. You you type Meridian Mississippi you find it on Google maps. And then you click nearby jujitsu bup bup bup about populates everywhere. Right. Yeah. If you would have done that in nineteen eighty nine hundred ninety even two thousand nothing nothing. Nothing would've come up. We weren't using those searches in this early then, but even out the yellow pages. If I would have gone to the yellow pages in Savannah, Georgia in nineteen eighty five. When I was in first ranger battalion looked for ju jitsu play had I known to do. So I don't I probably wouldn't found anything. Yeah. But I understand what I understand both both sides being exactly, and you know, and Hicks it in a previous. I think this was from actually year or so ago, maybe even more he said that he was actually dropped in one place to give a seminar any overheard. The owner blackbelt talking to somebody else and the student was asking questions about self defense, and the black belt said that's not what that's not what we do here. Right. You you need to go. Find a Chroma God place or something like that. Yeah. And Hickson said just that drove him crazy because that takes away the whole basis of what it was. But it was founded what was founded four, you know, if you go back to the history of, you know, started in Japan that was there that was their samurais modern combat as program, which got switched to judo to politics and everything else. It just befuddles me. If you look at it from my standpoint when I got into everybody was fighting, but back, then it was wasn't called was called him Amelia, and it was called an HP holds barred Bali to-to anything. And basically what we knew or the basics. We knew how to punch we knew how to kick we knew how to shoot a blast double maybe single egg. You knew an arm bar. You knew the guillotine you knew the rear, naked choke, and maybe a triangle in a commercial. And that was it.
