"You're trying to, you're trying your best to be a leader and get people to do things. When they're hungry and they're tired and they don't want to do anything. So it's a great leadership school. It's probably one of the best leadership schools that we have in the military and I was happy that I went, even though my journey was a little off, you know, from being a little bit older. Now, when you say you got a little bit of extra attention, is that a good thing or a bad thing? You know, I think it kind of went both ways. There were some ranger instructors that had a lot of respect for special forces, guys. So like, you know, for like land navigation, that's something that special forces guys really excel at. We do a lot of land navigation in the course. So the ranger instructors is like, make sure that I was point man or I was doing a lot of land navigation for the students going through my fellow students, and then there were some other cases where maybe the ranger instructor is graded a little bit harder because I was a staff sergeant. So I was 30 years old. I've been through the special forces qualification course. So the expectations were a little bit higher, like we're not going to grade you the same as a PFC from ranger regiment. So I kind of got it both ways. Let's back up a little bit too special forces training and qualifying. Why did you pursue that? And what was that qualification like? Yeah, so I spent probably I think I was in the military, 6 or 7 years, wasn't exposed to, you know, it was a light infantry guy was 11 bravo, started out at four door, California. Went to fort Lewis, Washington, and that's the home of second ranger battalion and first special forces group. Didn't really see the special forces guys during my time at fort Lewis, but I did get exposed a little bit to ranger regiment. And notice that, hey, these guys are on a whole different level than regular army infantry guys. So they had my respect. And then I moved to fort Campbell PCS to fort Campbell, Kentucky. And I started seeing a lot of fist special forces group out on the ranges, training, and I noticed that they weren't training quite like we were.

"Getting the care they should. I think that if you were to go to one of the centers that they were referring to, you would get a different evaluation than you might get with us or with other academic medical centers. So clearly, the DoD center is treating these patients to your point we're not going far enough as you said also in their diagnoses. Is that a fair assessment? We became involved when the DoD asked us to start seeing fort Campbell patients. Once we presented our data, the DoD says, we'll take it from here and they started evaluating the patients themselves. The difference is that they didn't take this patient's as far as we did and they didn't do lung biopsies. So we would frequently do a lung biopsy and demonstrate that these patients had toxic lung injury. The DoD facilities would typically see them evaluate them and say, well, all your studies are normal. Yeah. Be on your way. So now that we've established this, how would this legislation fix that problem? The legislation would help with the patients that we've taken care of in two ways One is that the patients that we have diagnosed would now have a service connected disability. When we identify a patient with constrictive bronchiolitis, the VA does not grant disability benefits because their x-rays and pulmonary function tests are normal and that's the criteria that they use for disability benefits. The second thing is is that it would allow patients that we evaluate clinically and feel as if they have constricted bronchiolitis the same opportunity for benefits. Okay. Because we would consider it a presumptive diagnosis. Can Jon Stewart help you sell it? I think he has helped us sell it because what he has pushed very hard is the idea that it is incorrect to require the veteran to prove the disability that their disability is due to deployment. That's been the problem since I've been involved in much much before I've been involved is that the veteran has had to prove their link to service. Well, we'll see what we get next week. It's an important conversation doctor. I want to thank you for joining us with your insights, doctor Robert Miller, thanks for being with us

"And use all of the resources that they have to help you transition. And then reaching out to all these non for profit organizations that are there to help soldiers, transition, you'll be in a much better place, so for me, personally, I got out. Didn't have a lot of idea of what I wanted to do. I can honestly tell you, I thought it was going to come natural to me. It's going to click and I'm going to know what I want to do. But it didn't. And after 30 years, it just seemed like something would turn on that didn't. So I had to really try to start figuring out who I was apart from being a soldier. You know, and when you spend so much time, even unless you're it's kind of hard to, it's hard to figure out that people realize it's going to be, so when I got out, I was looking at different jobs and just nothing was really appealing to me because I loved the army environment so much. And a buddy man shot me notes, hey, did you see this job for army emergency relief? And I thought, man, it's like almost like fate. Because it keeps me connected to the army, which I just think is just the greatest organization. And AER when I was at fort Campbell, it really I saw how much AER did for all of our soldiers in times of desperate need. And I thought, this is an organization I want to be part of, keeps me connected to the army. I'll be working with many fellow retirees. And I just thought it was the right fit. You know, it's funny when I look back. My wife kept saying, you better keep applying. Don't throw all your eggs in one basket and my joke was every egg I have is in that basket. So I hope that it works out for me. Unfortunately, it did. And I retired November 2019. And I started working for army emergency relief in January, January 6th. 2000 20. So, and then just to clarify, what's that? Great transition. Lucky transition to you. And not everybody gets that lucky. And that's kind of the scary part.

"Welcome to what's new in national defense magazine. A podcast on military Homeland Security and technology trends available on Apple news. In this episode, national defense discusses the future of the little bird helicopter. The navy's new torpedo program, and the delivery date of the coast guard's new and improved icebreakers. This month's episode is brought to you by BAE systems. First, special operations commands AMH 6 little bird also known as the killer egg, has been a mainstay in its inventory for decades, offering commandos a niche capability not found in other air platforms. The helicopter is compact size, agility, and speed, make it an ideal rotorcraft for getting in and out of hairy situations, experts say. The exclusive user of the aircraft is the 160th special operations aviation regiment out of fort Campbell, Kentucky. Made by Boeing, the aircraft provides a unique and capable platform for employing lethal and accurate fires, according to an army official. The little bird gives special operations forces two hours of flight time, as a maximum cruise speed of 126 knots, a range of 179 nautical miles, and a maximum service ceiling of 20,000 feet, according to Boeing. But despite the platform's success, the little bird, which was introduced in the 1960s, continues to age. So what is in store for the future of the helicopter? For one, the platform isn't going anywhere, according to socom, with continued maintenance and upgrades, there is currently no service life end in sight. There has been some discussion in the helicopter community that the aircraft could one day be replaced by a platform developed by the army's future vertical lift family of systems, particularly the future attack reconnaissance aircraft. But the main challenge for a replacement is finding a platform that is small, maneuverable, transportable, and simple enough to conduct the light assault attack role of the AMH 6, said one army official. However, with The Pentagon shifting its attention to competition with Russia and China, one expert said that the little birds rule will be limited in future operations because it is not as relevant in terms of range, employability and battlefield survivability. Regardless, the aircraft will likely continue to be a mainstay in so calm's inventory for years to come due to their active production line and relatively low cost. Next, the navy is poised to award the contract for its new torpedo and more than two decades. In October the sea surface released a request for proposals for the compact rapid attack weapon program. The navy is seeking bids to manufacture the prototype for the very lightweight torpedo developed by Pennsylvania state university's applied research laboratory. Once fielded, it will be the navy's newest torpedo since the 1990s. Northrop Grumman would transition the technology from Penn State to manufacturing. The company's focus is to modify the design to make it lower cost in production the official said. At 9 feet long and round 200 pounds, Northrop Grumman's prototype is a fraction of the size and weight of the 600 pound Mark 54 lightweight torpedoes currently in use by the navy. The size would allow the service to carry more torpedoes on a submarine and create the option for either manned or unmanned aircraft to carry them. In addition, the torpedo will be able to perform both defensive and offensive missions depending upon how its software is configured. Defensively, the torpedo is being designed to engage an incoming torpedo, while offensively it's been designed to engage a submarine. The first iteration of the lightweight torpedo designed by Penn State was fielded as a defensive weapon, but the program has since been canceled. However, the navy realized the benefits of having a multi mission weapon and pushed the university to design a more flexible torpedo. Because the very lightweight torpedo was originally designed for a defensive capabilities, it will be less costly, and have the ability to be launched quicker and be more maneuverable, the company official said. Last, the pandemic and design related work will push the coast guard's new icebreakers to an expected 2025 delivery date, according to service leaders. The commandant of the coast guard announced last fall that the delivery date of the first polar security cutters would be delayed one year due in part to COVID-19 as well as a complex design of the new cutters. The fiscal year 2022 budget requested $80 million for the procurement of three ships, icebreakers are difficult to build, but are an important national asset according to a coast guard official. The coast guard is collaborating with the navy to collaborate on the icebreaker's design. The polar security cutters will sail through extreme temperatures and conditions around the world. They will also need to break through ISIS thick as 6 feet. Currently, the coast guard has one aging heavy duty icebreaker and a medium duty icebreaker, which is primarily used for research purposes. The coast guard is working on a more effective versatile design than that of previous icebreakers, a coast guard officer said, the new cutters will need to adhere to crew members needs, and have the ability to provide services like boat launching and helicopter recovery.

"You know, it's just amazing. Well, if anybody, you know, look at photographs. See, that's it. I'm standing there. And I'm looking at my wife and my kids. Wow, that's a beautiful story. I mean that you got to get home safely and the world's a better place that you did. And I could only imagine how you feel with all the people that you lost. I mean, all the friends that you lost. Yeah. And you know, and you must feel very well, let me ask you, you must be feeling incredibly lucky that you survived, do you ever feel guilty that you survived? Like, you know, do you ever feel like I got out, you know? Well, yeah. I mean, you know, I was very fortunate I had two mortars land within 5 feet of me and both of them were duds, both of them should have killed me, but they were both done. I got a picture of me holding one of them. I was an IED blast. I was in a VIE blast. The vbi blast is a vehicle that is loaded with it's a suicide bomber. And I survived that. And then I was also actually caught right then. My vehicle was the center vehicle in what we call the kill zone, where we got ambushed and my vehicle was the main vehicle that the enemy were firing up. You know, yeah, you just, it's one of those things where, you know, you just, I don't know, if you're religious, you tell yourself, you know, it was God, because God brought me home. You know, I was almost I was 5 minutes away from being killed or kidnapped by 60 Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. I don't know. I was always fortunate. But that's one of the things. You know, I survived combat to come home to Logan county West Virginia and almost be murdered on a creek bank with some asshole to hit me in the back of the head with a bike and then broke 8 bones in my face with brass knuckles. You know, I mean, it's like, you know, I'm a hard son of a bitch to kill, I guess. Well, thank God you are Robert Barry. Thanks for the 5 bucks and says, as a field officer, it's his honor and duty to know who he is. So who he is to his troops and his enlisted, how he's wired. Guys like him is the reason. Everyone appreciate that. But just one question and what do you mean, when you came over the wire, you know, what was the wire that you were talking about? What we call it the wire in the military is you have a base. You're either on a combat outpost, a four patrol base or a big old forward operating base. And when you're on those, we're considered to be inside the wire. We're going to go. But going outside the wire means you're leaving that area and you're out there driving through Baghdad or wherever you're basically in the enemy's backyard. All day long. And that's what it is. And you know, and sometimes, it's kind of like, you can be out there and you can go months. And it feels like, damn, it's just boring as hell. Nothing. We go out, nothing happens. We come back. We go out and nothing happens. We come back. But then it's kind of like it's kind of like law enforcement. You know, police officers should tell you. Firefighters tell you. You know, the job is kind of, but there's 10% of the time where it's freaking holy shit, hair is on fire and it's just crazy. And that's how combat is. Well, I mean, that's just yeah. And that is crazy because that makes you even the tension every time that you go out is like, you know, your nervous could just be good day. Yeah, and you have there's groups. When I was in Afghanistan, you have these rap clearance tapes. And all of a sudden, you got this rat clear, same that comes out to where we're at all the time where I was at a comps and comp Sanchez and they come out there all the time. Almost every day they do a raptor that's out there. And then, you know, one of the guys, his name is mccloskey, great guy. You know, he and I we would do pull up competitions together and stuff. And then next thing, they come out there one day, and he's not with them. And I said, what's up? You got killed. You got kidding, you know? Literally like two days before. He got shot in the face and killed. You know, it's tough. When you said, when you say that you did four tours, is that 16 years? No, no, no. A combat tour is anywhere from 6 months to a year is what we considered. My mom were a year towards I did 2004, 2005, Iraq. Now, I got three operation Iraqi freedom deployments. Two of them were combat deployments. One of them, I don't count as a combat deployment, because I was in Jordan. So it was a deform, but I don't count as a comic form. So I got two 1004, 2005, 2007, 2008, Iraq. And then I was 2010, 2011 in Afghanistan. So those were those are my time. So what was the total amount of years? In combat, three in the military. 24. 24 years? Yeah. Holy shit, Richard. I did 20 years active duty when I was in college, I went ahead and did the National Guard thing while I was in college. I was enlisted for a few years and then I got this thing called agree to go to scholarship, which meant that they let me get out of the military and go to college. Well, when I was in college, I joined the National Guard just to get a little extra money on the side because like I said, the GI Bill wasn't exactly paying me a lot of money. So that's what I did. And then I went back active duty in 1997 and then I stayed in until 2014. Please tell me that now your pension or whatever is good. I mean, you know, it's okay. I mean, I'm good to go. I'm going to be fine. My retirement, you know, sometimes I kick myself in the butt that I really don't. You know, I was selected for lieutenant colonel, but I chose to retire as a major. I was done, you know, a lot of people understand is before I even went to pro left my wife and my kids the first time to go to Iraq, I had to leave them and go to Korea for a year. You know, I mean, and as a combat soldier, there's a lot of training involved. So before I went to Iraq for a year, I spent literally the majority of my time in the Woods with my troops going through training to prepare us for Iraq. So it never stops. The optimal, the optimal of a combat troop is nonstop. Your training constantly. You're living out in the Woods constantly. So I mean, you're lucky if you get some decent family time. But combat units do try when they can to give you good feminine time. They'll give you maybe a two, four day passes. You'll get at least one four day pass every month. Well, I'm gonna cheer you up now, army major. And let's all laugh at last week in the Republican Party brought to us by The Lincoln Project. Let's see what idiocy from these Jack loons.

"Spouse and author claire. Cain clair's career is an example of the classic military spouse efforts to find a path that works within the frame of the army's demands the challenge of pivoting careers every few years length claire to her dream job and now she's not looking back through this journey. She's learned the value of having room of her own in pairing passion with flexibility in this crazy military life. Claire lives to eat and drink her way around the globe with her traveling soldier and three kids but is perhaps even happier hunker down at home in a pair of sweat pants and slippers using any free moment. She has to read and cook or talk. She really likes to talk. Which is why. I think we're gonna get along so great today. She has an become an expert at packing too many dishes in too few cabinets and making houses into homes from utah to germany and so many places in between. She's a proud army wife. Is frankly just really happy to be here claire. Welcome to army wife talk. Radio loved your book and can't wait to talk more about it. Thanks so much for having me. I'm glad to be here before we start talking about your books. Just have to say sweatpants reading writing and food jammed to we're gonna get along wonderfully especially with the talking which you've probably figured out and our listeners. Already know that about me so excited for that. Also you've had a crazy journey as a mill spouse and had to work pretty hard to find a career that would work for you in the military life. And i'm sure a lot of our listeners are going through those pivots and career. Change is also as we speak. So let's just pop back rewind justice gauche and see how you got there. How long have you been a mill spouse and how has this influence your career We just hit the fourteen year. Mark of mill. Staus life for me. Basically my husband commissioned the same week we got married so been there since the beginning and i also was right out of college of low baby and i really had no idea what to expect with military life what to expect with my career because i was still just trying to find myself and all of that basically. I definitely wouldn't be where i am. I wouldn't be writing fulltime. I don't think If we hadn't taken this journey. Because i don't think i would have sort been forced to make those pivots people so often do and ultimately find out where i am now in that. It's where i meant to be. I had different plans and changed and changed again and changed again. You know unser. Many of us can relate to that in fact if you haven't had that happen i think your true minority but You know it's easy to see from this vantage point. Fourteen years in how beautifully some of the things that i encountered like not being able to get a phd. Which was really my plan. I uni station at twenty two which was adorable but I i ended up getting a master's degree at austin state university. Right outside of fort campbell and it was amazing. It was such a great experience at it. Started out as. I like to read and write. I guess all happened program while he's in iraq and you know bide my time. We didn't have kids and it turned into a teaching career. I taught for them for deci of ten years through three different duty station. How you know a lot of things. I couldn't have predicted so i i'm thankful for it now doesn't mean it's not still without some angst but i. I have less angst now i used to do. I used to say. I'd have us a biannual career breakdown where i just had to have a little bit of a meltdown about what i thought was going to happen and what was actually happening and i don't think there's anything wrong with that. I think some of it is letting ourselves sort of come to terms with how things look and what we thought might happen. But i think that's also just real life and we. I think i kind of wandered around there. I don't know if i actually answered question. No you totally did. And i feel like so many male spouses myself included. Kind of get the. I'm not entirely sure what i was getting into some days. We're still not sure what we're in the middle of and we're just kind of winging it kind of as we go but released still feeling that experience in that fruit from wow. This worked out way differently than i thought or planned. But here it is. It's working out. and yes. we are all entitled to our by annual. What the heck am i doing career mental emotional breakdowns of. I don't know what to do with my hands. What's happened. Especially i think is probably even after last year and a half i would say that's gonna we used to quarterly quarterly break outs. And that's okay agree hypothetically not expecting experience well thing i'm curious about claire is with your pits moving around teaching education experience. How'd you end up writing military romance. Can you tell us specifically about some of the books you've written if you had asked me a decade ago. If i would be writing romance. I would've turned by knows that you i'm ashamed to say but i definitely had a pretty big bias. Against what romance is the kind of people who read it and write it. I was not a romance career. I think i read some chick lit in high school and stuff but i got a degree in literary criticism and.

Amy saw a complete change in me when someone comes home after seven months absence and they've experienced so much trauma and you've experienced your own trauma you start to wonder if the thing that you thought you had before was in your imagination and yeah. There's just no time to rest no time to say. Hey what did this deployment mean or do to me. No i had never even heard of traumatic brain injury. No one had mentioned that it might be a possibility and we just didn't think about it. And so we just powered on through Powered through family life started to try to have another baby powered through every life event. I didn't feel the change. I didn't see the change. It was a couple years down the road. That like things really started to manifest themselves in ways that i couldn't necessarily pinpoint it started with lapses in memory and ability to deal with short term retention of basic stuff like. Don't leave your gym bag sitting on the back of the car and drive away every day. Because then it's going to be in the ditch somewhere and you're going to have to get another uniform and boots and whatever but it also manifest itself and addiction. It manifested itself and an inability to cope with human relationships and inability to connect with other human beings. Especially my wife. You look at yourself in the mirror every day. And you're like well. I have all my parts. So whatever's wrong with me. I just need to stuff down inside and do my job. I got a focus on the mission. That i have which is to trained soldiers and get ready to go back and fight more and it tears away at you and eventually tears away the people in your life because they're the collateral damage. So what did that look like for your marriage what it looked like for me was my safe-space was at work. Because at work was an environment. I could control. I didn't feel that at home. Because amy is her own person. And i don't get to control that My sons are their own. People their autonomous on like soldiers that are gonna follow orders and twenty thirteen three years. After luke had returned home he and amy were living in tennessee near a base in fort campbell kentucky with their two young boys. Luke was eager for his next appointment to start so he could get back to combat an escape the shame and guilt the plague him. The chest pains sent him to the doctor and he found out that his arteries were ninety percent blocked. He needed to emergency stents. He was twenty nine years old. It was a devastating blow. At the time. I felt like my entire identity as a soldier had been stripped away from me. This whole thing that i'd been training in honing my skills and my mind and my body to for years was taken off the table. Luke was relegated to being an operations manager. Training others doing paperwork. He hated it from there. I just kind of started to spin out of control over the next ten months. If you saw me monday through friday working you would say yeah that is crushing it and at the same time like mentally inside my head inside my soul. I was just at war every single day with myself. He tried to numb himself with alcohol and sex not always with his wife. It was that special kind of hell that exists. When you're betrayed by your spouse. He sat on the floor of our bedroom and cried and told me that he didn't know why he had come home. He didn't want to be here anymore. It was really. It was like an out of body experience for me that i can see myself standing in this room. Being a part of this conversation watching this person who i love so much struggle so hard and not clearly not understand why he still having such a hard time. I was thinking about death as a outlet was just an everyday occurrence. I was at a point where was broken now. Just not so much broken broken fine. We're all broken but doing yeah like the stat. Continuous status of. I'm being broken and being okay with that never seeking to. He'll never seeking to get better. Not just being broken but willingly willfully continuing to be broken. They tried couples counseling. But it didn't help. So friends and family intervened hoping to stop luke from continuing on his path of destruction when i was confronted with that. Like you have a problem in you have to stop or you're going to lose your family. It was okay. Well if i do this and just lie about it. I can stick a fist in the dyke and will be okay and it took a year of being like no i am really broken and i am really a liar and i am really full of trauma and i'm not dealing with it before i was at a point where the broken ness was enough to be like. Okay i have to. I have to deal with this. Amy and luke separated. He moved out of their house and into a friend's basement and that was his rock. Bottom point ultimately. It's what got him to take. The kinds of action needed to rebuild his life. I think that was key in pivotal in me being able to take very deliberate steps to start the healing process and the reconciliation process and the process of taking back the mantle of being a husband and father and our relationship. And you knew you didn't want to give it up. Yes i knew. I did not want to give it up. How did you move toward reconciliation.

One nine is going to be the movie and it's our story of those of us who flew in it who supported it. We need to have this on the big screen and external jackson's czar. As well as as mind that this not become hollywood flash pan. Maybe this is gonna be an action film. Move because lam son seven one nine was action and he wants the movie to depict what actually happened and if anyone reads the book they will know that at the movie depicts a quarter of. What's that book. It is going to be on the edge of your seat. Kind of a movie. So the vents and everything he's put into their saying or not. Hollywood made up events. these are true events. he's changed some names but these are true events. He does have several actors who have indicated that they would like to play major roles in the movie There's our producer on board and the screenwriters Are busy writing this. But it takes money to do this and the go fund me. Undaunted valour is the place where people who hear this and filled that they want. This story told whether it's them themselves or their relatives who are involved in this or they are just Very supportive of what our military has done in the past especially what we did in vietnam which a lot of those stores were not very favorable stories This is a very favorable story of what we did Than i encourage them to do the go. Fund me undaunted valour all this money. is going to being accepted by five. Oh one c. Three group at fort campbell kentucky and so matt gets none of this money. Matt jackson gets none of this money. It's all going towards this movie Every last cent office going towards us moving so the quicker we can get this an the more we can faster. We can proceed with developing this movie and I would certainly encourage people to take in consideration five. Oh one say three. So he's rotations tax-deductible outstanding. And i look forward to I look forward to seeing this thing for sheriff when it comes out reading these books sitting here. We're talking with you guys. Just an unbelievable part of history a true look at at the heroism that you all and american soldiers displayed vietnam echo. Charles do you have any questions. I do not know questions from equa charles if he doesn't ask any questions and that means he's going to talk a lot later so i have to put up with that. That's just the way it is. That's part of the punishment i guess for me. None as it just shows the depth that we went into how filled i at the end. Okay to down to the detail. Thank you for asking beta. Be here. And i wanna thank matt jackson putting it all together and I'm finally glad to meet the man. I saw on The dan bongino show right on anything else. J. no sir. Well again like you said. Thanks to colonel. Matt jackson for introducing us in and for his efforts and writing these books and preserving these these heroic deeds of our combat aviators and soldiers in vietnam war. And of course. Thank you for joining us and sharing your experiences. Your lessons learned and most important. Thank you thank you for your service and sacrifice to our great nation. The bravery of you of your fellow pilots pilots of the of the aircrews. The bravery that you all showed can never be questioned and we are grateful for your heroism and the example that you set for all of us today thank you thanks for coming on and with that major j tate has left the building not even much to say to follow that up. This just mayhem. I have a lot to say. Actually but i won't go into as deep as maybe i could but i will say that so talking to nick outside and whatever we were talking about it reminded me of this. Where like nowadays it. Okay not nowadays but in the vietnam war there so many people who did so many crazy things but they don't have necessarily a big spotlight on them. They're just like just kind of cruising now. Where you don't you know they don't. They're not in the spotlight in any way they're just like essentially now they're just sort of just living normal people will. It's always interesting to me. That like a major j tate retired in nineteen hundred eight. I came in in nineteen ninety right so there's almost overlap there and there's been plenty of old vietnam guys in the seal team's some but you know it'd be meeting some random army dude you know and he could have easily been this guy you know. There are people in vietnam that did the craziest stuff and no one knows about it. Literally things that are going to be in a movie literally did those things that are going to be in a movie and people be like. Oh i wonder why they wrote. It made it so crazy crazy. Yeah yeah where. They got a suspend their disbelief. Or what does that suspension. Yeah they kind of got to do that about something. That really happened in real life. Yeah that kind. Meanwhile he's just cruising. I mean even. I was talking to till yesterday. Actually saturday talking tilt on saturday in and he was. You know the amount of times that those guys did crazy things. It's unbelievable it's unbelievable and no one really knew too much about sog. Look if you're if you're deeply into the military history and all that but a normal everyday person barely knows anything about sock. I didn't risher. There's one thing. He mentioned those pretty dark. And then you just move right on when he's like you just you don't wanna get burned up. Yeah as a pilot. The book that was in the book lamb song seven nineteen. Yeah he said like in world war two like some men were known before parachutes. Yeah you can catch fire. Just gonna kill yourself. That's bad it was. Yeah that was interesting and it was also interesting in in the first book by jackson. He's explaining basically that a helicopter doesn't want to fly this thing does. This is a bunch of metal gear gears in oil and gas. That doesn't wanna fly. If you just let it go which is going gonna crash an airplane. Even if you let go the controls it's kind of cruise. Feel like i am not a pilot. Don't know if you knew that but it feels like on an airplane. Something goes wrong or whatever as long as you got wings and got glide. That way in yeah. It feels like that. So i had a car so my first deployment to guam perkin the do when we get over there. All the all the seals we'd by guam bombs. We call them just like a piece of junk car. Whatever is going to drive around guam for a few for six months and then sell it to the next. So we bought our guam from some other team. Guys that were leaving we had this was was a. I think it was a nineteen. Seventy seven. vara was beige. But here's the thing cars are kinda you'd think cars it'd be like oh you don't really you know if you if you don't touch controls just kinda gonna go until it just going to go straight to it by stops right. Yeah this car. I don't know if you let your hands off the wheel it would go into a full hard right..

Ops guys or monitoring everything on our company frequency and they had heard all the chaos and the horror that was being dealt to us and So of the crew. Well came back on those four ships because levin ships count cruise ship. They were all outside waiting for us to come in waiting their hats and we all landed and all round up and everybody was getting a hug and everybody was cold. Beer was owned on the flat line and it was just a big celebration. And especially because we brought health morris and his crew in bergen his career jerry cruise. We got off of there and they were sitting on on the floor plug. Dan listen to something. That's the camaraderie. And as i told. Matt jackson said Aviation cruiser different Rank is superfluous Everybody is has a specific mission. Crew chief door. Gunner co-pilot aircraft commander. Everybody has a specific mission. But nobody can do that one mission by themselves. It takes all of us working together as a team. And i don't care if i'm a captain and your spec four crew chief. I'm no better than you are. And if it wasn't for you. I can be flying his airplane same with the door garner. That's a lesson you learn how you learn a lot about team. You learn about personal courage. You learn about personal responsibility. You'll learn A certain sense of tenacity. I can't be lazy. they're dedications gotta be there. And that's what experienced these guys in vietnam every one of them there was no lacquered. Everyone of them even the guys in the maintenance hangar that didn't fly those missions with us and many of them would jump into flaw mission. Just get out there and do it. But even to the clerk that wrote the awards there was such a sense of dedication and camaraderie that. I have never experienced on tar life since then never My twenty years in uniform and the thirteen years that i was fortunate to serve as a survey with the with the office of the secretary of defense. Nothing nothing will ever compare to what i experienced. Specially in lam son seven one nine even the command and control north missions though they were harry though. They had some twists and turns. I would've never expected. And we lost crew pro-north missions That's that's horrible. But nothing compares with lamb psalm. Seven one nine and I think that's that's where the what we now see is air salt. That's where it was born. It was born there. We had to thank on our feet. We did things that were down where to think on our feet and I mean like coming to the ten foot hover versus putting your skin. How do you learn that. You learned it from experience Just just things. I guess they're being learned today A more as they teach our salt at fort campbell today But my god that was a to fort campbell several years back and the ghazal flying blackhawks now then they looked at us like we were wore two pilots found between nine with the low tech all this and they were captivated by the stories that we could tell You know if it wasn't for gps. I couldn't drive a car from point. A point beep but up in the air could shoot a vector and i could say pop smoke and identify the smoke and you exac rows going just things you'll her probably one of the wards. I'm most proud of an army accommodation medal. And i got that from battalion commander. We inserted his soldiers into the ashok valley This was after After seven one nine and it'd been a long day for you and Son it was start son starting to sit and i get a call from an something six i and i.

They'll put you in the plane and then they'll like land and put it down and be driving and you drive off at the same time. And then they just that's why yeah. So they do some cool. You get to do that. I did not get to do that now. I wish so you arrive at for brag. I'm assuming you're one of the few females then yeah. I was the only female that was like in field artillery. there was What is it like. I forget what it's even called like the forty two alpha's and stuff like that. You know paperwork like there was females. Yeah of that. But yeah i was the first first one there and it was awesome. I loved it because there was no drama and then as the female started like rolling and more and more i was like okay now i understand why they don't want us in the combat arms because you guys ruin basically everything really yes. Why why did you feel that way. It's i feel like it's just a certain type of email that really is meant for that. Like obviously females can physically do it mentally do it. But a lot of females that come in they did it because it sounded cool and then they get there and they don't want to actually do the work so then they start being cute and getting out of stuff and you know the drama you know and it's just like okay. You're giving everybody a bad name by doing this. So it just would you pull them assign. Oh absolutely were you need five at this. yeah so that was frustrating. Because it's like you know you can be respected by just being one of the guys like they're going to respect you more if you do the right thing. You don't get out of doing hard work because you're a female you know like there's ways around it but a lot of females. Don't go about it the right way. So that was very frustrating. Did it make you. I'm just curious at that time frame because things were opening up. Did it make you think about maybe going into the soft community I wanted to. Maybe you would be again a trailblazer but in a very different way but maybe around males who it's just more about are you carrying your weight doing what you're supposed to be doing. And they really don't care for the most part you know they don't care. Yeah now. I always wanted to do all the the gung ho stuff like. I was drinking all the kool-aid when i was in like i was all about it so that was always a plan of mine. I didn't know what i wanted to do whether it be c. A. or sigh up stuff like that. And then when they started opening it up like sf for females but When i was at fort campbell is when they opened up ranger school two females. So i was in second brigade and i started doing like the ranger. Pt program and all that stuff and It was when i ran listed or something. My mom came down.
