Could Biden's Vaccine Mandate Help Larry Elder's Chances in California's Gubernatorial Recall Election?

"I remember fondly how unified we felt after the terror. Attacks of nine eleven. May we feel that spirit of unification again. Today after king george stood before his throne and decreed that everybody must be vaccinated or else he'll get them out of the way It is beyond unconstitutional. It's agreed gis shocking is dreadful to watch this president. And i'm gonna say this. I know the odds are against larry elder just like the odds were against donald trump. Sometimes the odds makers have a way of being wrong and the fact that this over this unconstitutional overreaches happening on the eve of the california recall election. I'm not so sure. This doesn't greatly assist in removing gavin newsom. And electing larry elder governor of california. You know the guy that got eggs thrown at him by a woman wearing a gorilla mask you know the black conservative. Who happens to be a friend and a colleague of mine. Who's the leader in the republican. Pack of gubernatorial candidates in california. Who was on the campaign trail this week and was assaulted by a woman wearing a monkey mask. You might not have heard of the story because the mainstream media was terrified to cover it and they didn't because that's how they roll.

Paying for College and Curbing Student Debt

"I heard about sharing kelly in her massive college debt through josh mitchell. I'm an economics reporter at the wall street journal in washington. Dc josh covered student debt at the journal for nearly a decade. And he's just written a book out this month about the federal student loan program and its history called the debt trap. How student loans became a national catastrophe. The idea of the federal government lending students money for college originated after world war two with a gi bill. There was a provision that offered qualified servicemembers five hundred dollars a year for college of continuing education gi bill. It wasn't until the late nineteen fifties under president. Whitey eisenhower that other groups became eligible for college aid. Josh says the idea took off shortly after another launch when russia sent its sputnik satellite into space. A new moon in the sky at twenty three inch metal sphere placed in orbit by a russian is super excited to read in your book that it was scientists who implored lawmakers and even the president at the time to come up with a way to get more. American students enrolled in science and engineering president. Eisenhower who was a small government type of republican really did not want the government to get involved in higher education. He felt like that was a state issue but there was this pivotal meeting that he had with scientists less than two weeks after sputnik launched. These were like top scientists in the united states including ceo's of big companies and they basically said You have to act now. You know if we don't act now if we don't get more people into science education. We're going to fall behind

Food Allergies in Children with Dr. Kenneth Bock

"Talk more about food allergies. This is an interesting thing to delve into talk. Abo- how often you'd see people with these back in the day. He talked about this this patient back when you gave that lecture that you already working with with autism and then how commoner they these days how is that changed over the years. Well i think they're more common There's there's actually food allergies which is a classical food allergy reaction Kind of more like the immediate strawberries. Get hide so to speak And then there's more delayed reactions food sensitivities which are different than denies to. They're usually they can be very very disguised because it can happen later. It doesn't happen right away. but and so i think the incidence of allergies has increased because the immune systems. Our kids have gotten skewed. And i'm happy to talk a little bit that sufficient second because i think it's contributed but So there's more and more issue's gi issues especially in the partition population. But certainly all these kids with mood. Disorders anybody with a chronic illness whether it be physical or neuropsychiatric. But what have you. You have to look at the gut and that when there are problems in the gut that can contribute in the microbiome The good the good bacteria in the gut that could contribute to immune imbalances skewed immune systems and more food allergies and also food sensitivities. Where you know where if you have a permeable gut lining you. Don't you lose the integrity of the gut. Lining keep certain things out especially large molecules. They get in tight. Junctions get opened up. These large molecules getting the immune system. Seventy to seventy five percent which lies right under the this one layered epithelium in the gut allows these molecules to getting immune system sees them and they reacting appropriately with an immune reaction to something that they should be reacting to food. And so whether you get a food allergy reaction Action and. I do believe that this is. There's no question has been happening. More and more. We see it more. And more i think disruption to the microbiome the microbiome is that correction of the microorganisms got trillions of bacteria other organisms that hopefully are in a healthy diversity a healthy balance but frequently unfortunately not and that also contributes to increasing food allergies.

"Welcome back everybody to another episode of caravan garbage where we are wrapping up the gi. Joe douala aji pork chop sandwiches folks. You know remember that now. Let's videos. I don't remember anything but they got the redubbed. Gi joe videos. I haven't saying pork chop sandwiches. He's running running house or whatever. I know you'll two thousand and seven means mason. Show you later. You're gonna love it. But there's one in the video but ben put avail. Yeah yeah if you if you know this main that masons talking about let us know below rosa auto in the animated movie might come back to it. If snake gets another prequel. We'll come back and you is leaving like if you want. Because this time around. Steven summers is out. Jon m chu directories in terrific. I feel like this one. Were hoping for a fast. Five ray boot. By adding the rock by the way. Another the mummy franchise alumni. Yeah that's right. Mommy sang scorpion. King himself exactly. What's interesting about this movies that the lost one had a cost of colorful characters and in this one. They're like what we're gonna do is we're gonna. We're gonna kill some of the joe's off-camera munich. We kill some of them on camera talking about mahlon wines. Off-camera definitely off camera channing. Tatum on camera. And so they're gonna they're gonna replace all of them with the new cold group. Which is obviously dwayne. The rock johnson. Adrian pilecki throw a very common alumni in this particular series of videos. Someone who i think does a great job with some very bad material and the third member which is cobbled. cut out of a target model different soggy catalog. Maybe is that the god. Yeah that guy you know the guy. He was nearly superman. He was in george miller's justice like he was superman he's also ensures zam. Yeah he's in the superstar. He's been another things because in this. What the fascinating thing to me is not only did. They replace channing. Tatum very charismatic channing. Tatum yes with whoever. This guy's name is. I'm not gonna look it up and i will never learn. I think it's jj called trona The actor yeah right. Yeah not only. Did they replace jennings Mister tatum's they decided to put a sane at the start of the movie to show how charismatic he is and how well he integrates with the rest house and then knock him off and then just replace him with this silhouette over man. I have a theory go on. I think the studio thought that channing. Tatum was running out of juice. Lease channing tatum's jennings items right and so they thought titans has three and they thought we'll slip him a couple mill will get him in for a day. You'll be the bridge between this movie and the last but here's the thing physically the bridge. They wanted to have wanted him to have to hold two pieces of suspension while the rock collide on runs over the just big heavy birds sticking seems to be little to no information on. This didn't initially even want to do the first one. So theory is that they needed something from the previous movie and they thought why not in shape. But here's the thing in two thousand twelve or year before. This movie came out and i tied him a million dollars and then they're like oh white we had this gun. Is inanimate gun. We could've used the bridge. The two million dollars for this man go on so in two thousand twelve. The before this movie came out. He was the second highest. Paid actor behind robert downey junior. He made sixty million with movies like the val the the rom com or whatever it is. It's a loses his memory and then channing. Tatum has to be like. You're married to me. Nice chatting site. Is that what you want. Yeah is that he did magic. Mike and twenty one jump street and then they went shit. We've only had him in for a die at. He was quite charismatic. And it works really well with the rock. But i guess we have to kill him off. Speaking of we've talked privately mason about how we don't often talk about what the story is never talked privately giants all on air content. So i figure for these videos. We should talk a little bit about the story. And i'm gonna give you a prompt okay. So at the start of this movie they give you a bit of a kind of a catch up from the previous movie. It's been four years and apparently four years of stuff has stuff has been happening. I said at the end of the nanno might war. Yeah right it wasn't really a wall. It's like hoffa die. that's what i'm thinking. Somebody rent through a shopping complex with a big green glowing bazooka. Whatever how they share the rocket should have called it the the one grain basuki incident offspring album or something so other things. They're doing what happen is because the thing about the lost one is the last one ended up with as you mentioned previously rex says. Hey i'm the cobra commander. Now and then he immediately gets arrested yamin destroy. They get thrown into prison yet. But at the start of this one the thing you said about the nanno might walls and clearly. There were some casualties including and wyans yes but when storm shadow and firefly in this movie Break copa kamanda out of prison. Yep it's a different prison. Yes and then cobra command off. Firefly my old body. We've been wall bodies for asia's but he was like cobra. Commander was just a scientist in the lhasa. So what i'm thinking is that was that was. I think you've hit on something because unlike why does everybody know this guy. Also when and then cobra commander's like well off to my after my secret headquarters and he goes there and it's got all the cobra logo. Yes of stuff which one in the last one and like all new tech and stuff. So what. I think happened is cobra commander. In stroh got broken out of the prison at the end of the first one they got new outfits and like new logos and they participated in the n-num did a rebrand. Yeah they did a little like the movie jiji retaliation i got a new typeface for they logo and then the then cover commanded investment got thrown back into a different prison. This one warned by wally. Dogs walton put him in my my signal. The from like some things i want. I didn't talk about this as won't coggins in this then okay so then so then cobra. Command is broken out of prison by storm shadow and fly fly. And then they're like what we're gonna do is we're going to. The plot is what they going to do is they're gonna frame. Gi joe for blowing up a bunch of stuff that that we're probably going to blow up anyway and then they're going to install cobra as the united states government's premier security forces because the president is is. The is the guy from the mummy mummy museum bridge. They should've just said that at the start view as the guy from the mummies the president now but he's also the guy from that giants won't move a great. He's something like about this movie. I think the snake is cost you as much better on it so much. All the costumes. Lips free carbon combined is a great cost you. They've gone with it. There's a few cover command a looks. Obviously there's the gone with the silver mask womp but there's also like the the sort of the jar of jam you put a jar of jam and you like a cloth covering over the top like i know the cobra lug on it instead of being dated us that it looks like a keg and then there's like the robot battle suit which i mean maybe we would have gotten three. But here's the thing. Select from those distinct cactus. This feels like two movies because everybody else's a boring generic army person. It's just cameras in a weird tank and just kind of rolling the his tank. Shut up just rolling over. The last battle is just like we're in this field. Like the last one i think went to fox was like it's an underwater submarine and everybody's gonna ship in a laser and might and this one's just like just on a long somebody's lawn. Just just semis. You've as in a law and really a couple of humvees on a loan see..

Gigo's box box and in a piece of pipe. it says. use your imagination. And i do. And that's the best collection there is. Then you come to a podcast and you lie about already old brackets online so the movie as well was supposed to kill duke and a bunch of transformers movie. They killed a bunch of transvaal's including optimus prime. Yeah and there was a huge amount of backlash. Obviously they had to resurrect optimus prin but oddly not all the other ones that will kill. Yeah but people kids really connected with optimus prime He was a new dad. Isn't it interesting that they connected with optimus prime the most popular character in the series and they were upset when they killed that character. it's all and replaced him with a camp of an whatever. The fuck did yes students. A camper van with flights dams locks absolute something better. I think if they haven't gone. Ultra magnus even ultra magnus ultra. Magnus settled ultra magnus. He's optimus prime ask is whatever but they were going to kill juke. Yeah he gets stabbed through the chest with a snake but it's a snake spear. I said that recently the remembering yeah.

"Yes even though we think of like action figures as like the four inch versions or whatever. Because obviously you couldn't you could avoid could not be playing with a doll. How how dare. I hope you went implying. That they could then by the way. They simply physically. I will buy coughed. I won't okay so but dipped away for a bit. Didn't it in the sixties. I honestly think it was probably vietnam. Yeah down in carr's people like show you about war. Actually i think from what we've seen from doing the big sandwich Where we look at ds. I the time show. There's like a blackhall between like what's most. It's pretty much up to the light seventies early eighties where toys alike. This is a fight fun. This is an oven. This is a shoe with a mouth on it. You know what i mean like it wasn't toys was in the eighties and then on just math shoes. And all the footage the mouth couldn't chase people are gonna each each night and then there was this explosion after stibal always going to say about the twelve inch. Figures will licensed in the uk as action man They will always action man. Yes as in action man. The greatest of the mole action man. That's a different. That's a different action. Man that's american action man. Run you think gets screwball action. Man action man's got a gun. Yes that's pretty action man now gone. That's right one gum. And so so. Basically what happened is they was that i think. Gi joe became adventure. Team in the seventy s so was less like we're doing more and more. We're doing adventures. We don't rock rock climbing rock climbing exactly But then in the eighties. A few things happened reagan. Reagan have well. That's basically what happened. Was reagan there. Were a whole bunch of like laws being like you cannot advertise directly to children. You cannot go. Hey kids coming by this thing like advertising had to be pitched at adults like maybe one of bio kids this but then in the eighties. Reagan was like now you can just you can just be like hey kids you can spend twenty two solid minutes. Yes two kids. Hey kids you wanna buy this thing. Yeah this time of the universe because that was what mass of the universe essentially was. Yeah but i think. I think how they circumvented that before and i might have seen this again on toy galaxy was released a series or comic. Then you technically selling the comic not the damn well. That's the thing with gi. Joe the comics. I right so they win because Marvel had they briefly micro noughts y- like the incredible shrinking man. They were part of the universe. Stobbe will save them as well. Yeah i did the star wars shogun warriors. Momma said this history of like weird stuff that he's briefly in continuity In the marvel universe and then they just can't reprint any of that stuff thereon. God zillah was briefly in the mall. Godzilla series which was shield will constantly on the hunt for godzilla. But obviously that's they don't have the loss anymore c. You could basically find scans of a piquant. I would love it if they could do that. Series but could never find him search for bigfoot. Show the just like we just didn't find in this way into a parallel dimension. How many might have or they just like they they get there and he's just missive. Yeah yeah so. So so The toy company went to marvel malaika. Okay us a comic book series. Give his origins for all the characters and nen thank they got millions of dollars to produce animated ads on television. Like thirty seconds. Four the comic book because technically it was against the rules yet. They're pretty pretty well animated. Yeah maybe the cartoon less so. I think i would say oh my survey but then eventually the rules relax with just like let's just do anything. Yeah and then. So i think go to five episode like twenty two minutes. Yeah miniseries or like you know we built. We build the teams. We build the family. Just just this one slight. Yeah and and that was this again. This pre transformers. Yes this was pre. So this would have pre i three a. Yeah and it was pre- pretended the djeddai. Yes they sort of had a clear pathway into like like dominating the market for these figures kind of freeman was started one. It was definitely pre like american. Yeah transformers so they had lawyers had like a free run. And i had fifty million dollars in the first couple of years and it was that reinvention of like everybody had like a costume in backstory. Yeah they went standing. Army men with beards and brush -able hair now of style was open the door to like just whack. Yes a certain point like mabul just started releasing like it was. It was called like gi joe in secret intelligence or whatever and it was just like a compilation of all of gi. Joe file qazi would get on the back of the box. I would just like footprint money. We could just people will read people. The kids will read a compilation of the stuff they already have. Because they've collected all the set. I would have gone on those. Yeah right yeah did imagine. I got i cut them out. And you made your own little bob. I wonder if i've got him in a box somewhere. Seem to have a lot of things in boxes. I don't think these boxes exist. He's saying you've got by always saying the things in boxes. But also. I think maybe every time i've moved up just chucked out a bunch of stuff. So who knows at this point. Yeah boy this is a really light anyway to move the gi joe think went for twelve years. The popularity of the the toys themselves wind. Yes same with transformers translate original american transformers comic but went for eighty issues like it adds losted the the toys by five years probably did the toys ever like completely stop. Though we talk and transplant was joe joe. Obviously they did because they're not on the shelves like nah you did..

Maybe they changed the rules. The cool deal rules kill room. And this is the last kind of like honorable jewish or something like that. Yeah you might be right. Let me find out whether you this blah blah fourteenth century. So that's great. John's really isn't it. I mean in europe. At least i think. I don't know anything else. I people to bear that in mind jackass forever also got a trial. Did i've only seen the third jackass movie and it's fun because i think i've seen the first one. Yeah go back. And actually i read an article with johnny knoxville where he talks about how it started even do many season before they stopped and then started making. Yeah he's in the stuff in between them. Whatever but it is something like this was huge in the early two thousands young men. I've watched the the first thirty seconds to this trial. And i'm like all this sort of this sort of it. Seems like there's sort of leaning away from like the real dangerous stuff. It looks like it's all everybody's having a great time during like parasailing every all smalls or whatever and then all of a sudden it's just like just somebody's being attacked by a ban this the all of a sudden going exactly as hot as before. Incredible are we also know that nobody was seriously injured. Because it's bain film anything he's bam is is act up a bit about because he was supposed to be in it and got let go and johnny. Knoxville is kind of loosely. Kind of talked about it but basically said the implication was that he has had substance abuse program or maybe that was eye condition of him coming back and those particular again. He didn't really. You didn't really get going to a. That's kind of the implication. So this like this like Some people they have to keep like cycling the edge of a pool otherwise they'll get slapped into a bit of fun and then just demand getting gold viable. That's cool just somebody with a helmet on my head. They're about to be attacked by a spider Some a lot of people getting hit in the knots that's classic. Somebody just looks a stun gun. Is the guy who just rides into the canvas. Oh yeah that was great. That was really impressive. What i thought was interesting about that is like that's not like he would have known that 'cause perspective on the works for the camera right i mean maybe but it looks because he coming straight off you pull back far enough you'd be like i say the edges. Yeah that's what i mean. Yeah and and like depending on what angle you anyway. It's still funny. I mean maybe that will like okay. This is this is a canvas but if you hit it hard enough you'll be able to go straight through and he's like all right. Yeah i should go back and watch the first Not sane deadline reporting that leslie. Greis is going to be playing bat girl slash barbara gordon which is also a would be in relation. I think it might be in relation to the batman. Maybe oh i don't know that for a fact leslie grace was in in the heights. One of the second movie apparent. So yeah they got. It also might not be connected to the batman. Because i'm not. But i did mention of somewhat that the jim gordon in that. Who is jeffrey ross. That might be a connection. Is jeffrey what's going on a bit of news. Kaleida are reporting. That michael bay jordan is producing his own superman series behind. This is separate from the tana. Abc coats slash j.j. Abrams movie going to be as you mentioned that one listener. Who figured it out. It's going to be about vows odd. And it's being written as a limited series runs. Yes so we're getting a black superman story for the movies and this is a different one. So i guess one of the movie one might be clark. Kent i guess or some other variation or whatever. Yeah pretty cool. Did you see also that geoff. Johns the men's grandfather com copy black or whatever because it doesn't make any sense. jeff johnson. Yeah but like very clearly. That would doesn't matter according to crypt tony boyle she this is actually possible is exactly like it is. It is physically possible. And also it's fictional anecdotes about did automate like betty levels of k. That krypton show like it was. It was the first season it was all right. It's just kind of stay. Who was the actor who was like go turned down for that. It might have been the guy played king amount of imagin- or different actor. Yeah will likely. But i remember acta somewhere said that they went up for and it was kind of demoralizing and it could have been him or a different person anyways. The important thing is that people hate the movie snake eyes so we haven't seen the movie snake likes to be like it was fine. Yeah like we didn't love it. But we took the day and we went and sore at separate cinemas and there was nobody in it and look. I'm not really a fan of property mason's more of a fan you know. They've made some changes to the law. But it felt it'd be the light on in terms of jiji kind of substance where where snake eyes is moscow. Lips exactly useful mosque lips. I people are enjoying caravan of garbage snake. Wave we're doing taliation. Wakes up for those people who give a shit about that pretty fucking average movie. Nice yes people care enough about to sit through this segment where you explain way. Gi joe came from and what it's delays or do they want to use the time tomko to skip ahead to where we briefly talked about mazda one we can you tell i wonder can you tell there's metrics i'm gonna so they'll just be a big black baugh paper like what am i. Thank you yeah. I think this could be interesting. Yeah but may. I mean we're gonna specifically going to be talking about john's gi. Joe a real american hero. Wow wow wow which is different from gi. Joe america's movable fighting man which was the original version from the sixties because which. Which is bobby saw. I have like a gi joe. Toy line officially ended for the first time in ninety four and when they did that they released like these anniversary figures that were like twelve inch version really the original original no like twelve inch versions of the modern version. I have a twelve inch. Snake figure i was going to bring over but then headache and also i don't know what box put it but it's not it doesn't it doesn't really twelve inch snake over here this black. It's thanks anyway. It's the nineties version. Yes so it's not like the version in like the snake is movie. It's it's like he's got like a like a like a blue sweater on and like yeah. That's a little tonner and a cetera. Because my understanding was. And i think i saw this on toy galaxy. Yeah is that the reason they made them small out with the same reason they might the star wars toys. Mola is because there was a plastics short yet it was against the seventies and eighties and they started at a twelve inch. Because i would like. Bobby's yeah and you could brush their hair. They had a little little pink shoes. Though that at all the second the second round of the twelve inch one you could brush brush nba. It's like hasselhoff like fuzzy regulation news. The extinct you absolutely. Couldn't i guess. Because i think this would have been pre viet nam people. Spend it speed in the army now. Probably a close cropped and depending where you are in the in but the sixties version was like that invented the term action figure. Yes even though we think of like action figures as like the four inch versions or whatever. Because obviously you couldn't you could avoid could not be playing with a doll. How how dare. I.

Using the 2-3-5-8 Framework to Get Your Wellness on Track

"There are a few things i wanted. I wanted to ask you about specifically you laid out in terms of what you call a two five. Three eight framework. Can you explain what those numbers actually stanford. Yeah so it's it's actually a two three five eight. So what's a fibber naci standing. I'm sorry that's okay. Means so fancy new using all them letters and numbers but the two three five eight is a real simple understanding stands for the two questions the three phases the five causes in the eight systems. The bounce protocol prime goes through all that in your tremendously but just for the record. Two questions being jealous have to be asking. What do i need to add. What and what do. I need to remove not like oh i need to take this. Take this and take that. Or i can't have this. I can't have that in fixes. It's always add an remote. Three is the three phases so we always gotta do things in the right order. Order of operations is critical in anything you know you. Just don't start with like say. Well you're ill you got a problem. That's detox because that sounds real sexy right and then like well you. You're assuming that your body has the ability to handle an induction or forced adaptation of removing stuff. That's been sequestered in tissue for a long time. You can't you can't just start pulling anything out of the body and expect the liver and the kidneys and the bowels and your lymphatic to be able to do it. So it's sets the order of operations the phases. We talk about nourish balance purifies. So you wanna a nurse. The body build it up then begin to balance out systems and then you can purify. So that's what that is. The five is the five causes of diseases is. There's five and only five. There is no other cause of disease other than the five which are nutritional deficiencies stressors microbes allergens and toxins. That's at every single thing can fit into one of those five categories. And most of the time it's it's not just one of those. It's multiple those but when you look at them in that way and you framework you go. We'll man okay. We'll those would be my targets of assessment and then of course eight stands for the eight systems of the body. Everything fits into those. The first one being environmental inputs number two is gi number. Three is mindset in cognition and number four is immune system basically when it comes to inflammatory cascades There's lots of them. There's not just inflammation and then move onto structural and that's both on the cellular level in the physical level Then we move onto oxidative stress in the energy production systems on number. Seven is neuro transmitters hormones in number eight the last one is bio transformation and detoxification

Giant Statues of US Presidents' Heads Are Crumbling in Virginia

"If you're wondering who has both the patience and the skills to sculpt giant busts of every president. I'd like you to meet david aspects. Okay i was in world war two. Remember that one so all the papers. David's originally from texas but he served in the army air corps during world war two and that brought them to france he always been artistic kid who doodling in the margins of notebooks. But it'd be embarrassed in seeing it all as a young man said man. This is where. I want to be. So i finish service and then took my gi bill to do two years embarrassed. David addicts was primarily a painter. But over time he started to work in sculpture as well and in nineteen ninety-four four. He got his biggest commission to sculpt a sixty seven foot. Tall statue. Of sam houston. The city's namesake and former governor and president of texas in one of the things that david loved about sculpting sam houston was working on the head and specifically the is head is about twelve feet tall and i get looking in his eyes and i love the way it's gone looks right at you. It was a big job so in the middle of it. David decided to take a little break. Go on a road trip. Take a quick vacation to visit friends in canada and driving. Back home decided mount rushmore. Everybody knows what it is. But i've never seen it but man i was well by that in the sixty feet tall but disappointed that you couldn't get closer to them. Look in their eyes. The is to david. The is were what helped him make the sculpture more than just a piece of stone. And so as you looked up at the president's carved into mount rushmore. He got an idea. Wouldn't it be great to do the president. Not just the four of those but all of them were forty three hundred that and not that big sixty feet but the about twenty. So that's what they the idea of building a whole set of the president's heads

Who Invented the High Five?

Who Invented the High Five?

"The origin of the high five is kind of disputed slash not really exactly known a forerunner to the high five was the low five part of black american culture since at least the nineteen twenties. But when did it turn up. High and spread further afoot. Was it from the women's volleyball circuit in the nineteen sixties american. Gi's in tokyo during world. War two apparently magic johnson even once implied that he invented it while it michigan state's which blows my mind because my dad was in the same dorm building as magic johnson. Who like was my dad present for the invention of the high five. Probably not. But i suppose i should ask him just in case. Even if magic johnson himself didn't create it he was most likely there when it first started taking off of the top contenders for its origin. They all take place in the late. Nineteen seventies in the world of sports. One story goes that it was created by wiley brown and derek smith from the university of louisville cardinals during the nineteen. Seventy eight seventy nine basketball season. Since their team was nicknamed the doctors of dunk. Doing the standard low five didn't make sense. Their team was all about that vertical movement so they started slapping their hands together when held high above their heads. Brown and smith who passed away in nineteen ninety-six. Get a big chunk of the credit for creating the high five in the press and one reason is because so much footage of the cardinals. High fiving tests highlight reels. A level of evidence not shared by many of the other origin stories but another origin story. A lot of people are familiar with. Is that lamont. Fleets a basketball player from murray state. University also playing around nineteen seventy nine. The story goes that lamont's dead lamont's leads senior had served in the first battalion. Fifth infantry in the vietnam war the infantry was nicknamed the five and after the war when lamont junior was just a little kid. The guys would often stop by his house to visit with his dad. They'd created their own greeting a arm. Straight up with five fingers spread as they said five

S6 E7 - How YOU can build resilience in the face of chronic conditions

"This is the we served now. What podcast and if you're anything like me you've had a ton of questions after leaving the military and the lack of answers looking frustrated and probably a little confused. This show is here to help you make sense of what can sometimes be well just some craziness that is post military life so you can do more than survive. You can thrive my name. Is aaron perkins. I'm us army. Combat veteran husband. Who beautiful wife daddy to two amazing kiddos and the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the process of rediscovering purpose in your post military life sue. You can thrive so the questions we talk about on the show you know. A lot of them are direct questions. You know how to use eleven gi bill. What's new for veterans. twenty one. Those are just a couple of things we talked about in the season. This is a season six episode. Seven and we're tackling a tough question today and there's no single answer to that's the toughest part about this question so before we dive into the question. I want you to think of math equations for minute. Just really simple ones. Two plus two. What's two plus two. It's four right so very simple. Very easy math equation vice. What's tuplice to. You're always going to say you're always going to know. Won't let's four but if i say what math equations when you finish them we'll have four as that end number and be like man. I don't know that's almost an unlimited number of answers. What's the same thing today. Because today's question is surrounding how you build resilience when a family member has a chronic condition and there was a virtually unlimited number of answers to this question. But i'm going to do my best to unpack those and there's a lot to unpack here so let's get started so my son. Christopher was born in two thousand eight and he had a kidney disease and still. Has this kidney disease to this day and We knew that he had some problems with his kidneys. Because they found the these problems on an ultrasound. When i was in iraq and my wife was still in germany and The the did the ultrasounds that hey you know what we recommend you go ahead and head back to the states because you know you can get you can get better medical care there in the states and so my wife moved back what she thought was temporarily and ended up being a permanent move I- redeployed early on and a compassionate reassignment and Got to fort knox kentucky which was the closest. Us army post Where to where. My son was getting his medical care and for the first couple years of his life he went through. Thing was eleven or twelve operations and Numerous other procedures to get these kidneys fixed. Now today. it's amazing it. You would never know. A single thing was wrong within the last couple of times. He's gone to the kidney. Specialists are like look his kidney. Function is great. He's doing very very well. And so that was a trial by fire so to speak. That was kind of like. Hey this this is A method i guess. A real world Test to see if you. Aaron are resilient and so. I learned a lot about resilience just in that experience. You know because again this is not just a flash in the pan you know Something one thing happened and then we had to deal with that. You know a broken limb or you know an accident or something like that. It was a chronic condition and again still is to this day but i learned a lot about resilience through dealing with my son's challenges with that disease and if you think back to military life right and this is army specifically i have to expect that all the services are like this but they build resilience in to the training plan. You know and as important as that is personal resilience all together now the past two months. I'll be honest with you. Guys have been absolutely brutal. They've been crazy because not only does my son have a kidney disease but my wife has chronic conditions as well so the past couple of months. My wife and i got her permission to tell some of her story. Her story is man. If if you ever meet my wife asked her to tell you her story because it is absolutely jaw dropping. How she is where she is today. You know based on where she came from and an all the the difficulties she came through to become the woman she is today but just in these past couple of months We experienced quite the scare and that scare It it seemed like it was cancer. Just be honest so for A while we were getting tests and then waiting for more tests and we got those tests and We said okay well. We're just going to get through this. You know no matter what happens. We're we're in this together and we're gonna stick together through this well. My wife goes to get a biopsy and she gets this biopsy. She's in recovery. The biopsy went fine. It was painful but it went fine. nothing was unexpected But it went fine while she was in recovery and this recovery was just a quick recovery. Just a few hours. She had what is called a ti or a mini stroke. And so we're like. oh my goodness how. In the world number-one how in the world is this happened number. Two how do we deal with this now. You know this is. This seems so much more serious than what it The what started out to be. We thought it was going into get a biopsy and and now here you've got to stay in the hospital. You've gotta be admitted well actually admitted to one hospital then transferred to another because at first hospital was too small and they didn't have the right doctors. There had to be transferred to another hospital and then finally a few days later she gets out. She's getting slowly better. But we still don't have those answers right. Don't have the answers in the biopsy because it takes a week or more to come back and you know she finally gets these answers and they're like yeah. Well we really don't know what it is. We really don't know what it is. It's not cancer. But we're not sure. And so they said. Well we want to send you to an autoimmune specialist and and those Those doctors are are booked up forever and well we can get you. Maybe like june july and so here we are still waiting on those answers and obviously all of this is stressing her out now. Little bit about that mini stroke just answered stress for her brings about these These symptoms where It stress basically over stresses her brain and she ended up needing to quit her job. And you talk about frustrating. And i don't mean frustrating like all you can't work anymore but she was super frustrated at like me. Why in the world is this happening. And and you know. What can i do to help and to build that resilience right but this is. This is not a story about my son. This is not a story about my wife specifically. Today's show is all about building that resilience when your family member has a chronic condition. And so i'll just tell you over. This was going with my wife. I stopped everything i could. You know some of you may have seen an email from said. Hey sorry. Our live mental health event An open dialogue mental health is going to be cancelled if your sponsor for the event. You've already paid. You know we're going to refund your money Which which already did. But there were so many things that i was doing that having a hand in that i said you know what i've just gonna stop doing those things and focus on what matters most right now focus and for me. That's my family. And and i think that is a key element to resilience is focusing on what you need to focus on and again. I know that sounds vague. Right but what is it that you personally need to focus on. Because i can't tell you what you should focus on. I can't tell you that. I wish i could but unfortunately i can't at so. I resigned my position from a nonprofit board Alabama veteran here in here in obviously alabama But also got some help from facebook in preparation In preparation for this episode and Some of you responded and told me how you build resilience in your own personal life. And i want to go through some of those responses real quick and then i'll dive into the five science backed strategies to build resilience but on facebook right. You know one of my friends. He said it. Because i asked i said look. I'm news and helping an oak upcoming podcasts. What are your go-to strategies for building resilience in your personal life and one of my friends. He's kind of a kind of a jokester but he says he says avoiding people and puts us little laughing face or winking face at the end of the comment but the the fact is sometimes that is the to do to help you build resilience and focus on what matters most to you another person. I and i love this. She said it's all about the thought life. It's about your mindset and and she also she said. I'm practicing telling myself no just to exercise that muscle while you know what that's not a bad idea and so there was a number of really good comments here but a couple of them Not a couple of them. I should say a couple of themes came out number. One was faith how my friends saying you know what. I'm learning to do what i've needed to do for years. And that's focus on my faith. You know my faith pushes me past that present crisis or would i'm perceiving as a crisis right you know made. My faith is reading and prayer. And you guys know if if you've listened to this podcast before that you know. This isn't absolutely faith-based podcasts. You know and and my my faith is that of christianity of following jesus But faith has been incredibly important for those seeking to build resilience in a personal lives and Additionally is time for self reflection so one thing is faith is the one theme that came out in the second was self reflection scheduled time for relaxation. And so using those hobbies or those Chill lacks kinda relaxing moments and building those in to your everyday life so that you can handle those stressors right And i wanna mention one of the thing this was. This was a a another theme. That that i know i said only two. There's actually three themes that came out and that's relationships. Relationships are so critically important and one guy actually When my friends here in the area said whoa to him and this is a scripture verse. Actually he's fourteen. He says woe to him who was alone when he falls and doesn't have another lift him up because look lifestyle right. It's really really tough. And the truth is we can't do it by ourselves. We weren't meant to we weren't designed to So it's really really important to have those people in our lives to help us when we can't help ourselves so having those strong relationships around us In a one one other one other comment. I wanna to point out before you get to the five science back strategies for building resilience practice resilience by practicing being resilient each time. Something happens to us. We need to put that in her memory so next time that happens to us even if even if it never happens again we we have that memory of what we did as we figured out you know kind of how to go through that process the first time now. What does that have to do. With a chronic condition you a family member having a chronic condition. All those things apply. They apply directly. Okay so five. Science back strategies to build resilience and this will take just a few minutes number one change the narrative. So look when something bad happens whether it's a single event or a long term Kind of episode right. We often relive the event over and over in our heads and it's called ruminating rehashing the pain and and it it's like we're spinning our wheels. Basically you know There's a study. Said you know what maybe try expressive writing. You know to try gaining some new insights into the challenges in your lives. You know there are a few different ways. You can manage that but that you can change the narrative But one of the one of the ways is to reframe it in another Another perspective or another light. How do you that a one of the things you can do is talk to those in your life that you have those strong relationships with another reason why relationships are so incredibly important. That's the first one number to face your fears. Sure like man. I don't know what's going to happen. In my spouse's life from my child's life because of this chronic condition face it running away is not going to help and when i say face it i i don't mean just dive headlong into a by yourself and tackle it all alone. Another reason why those relationships are so important. So even if you know it's your spouse that's going through something being able to talk to someone else about it about what's going on in your life and how you were feeling is so incredibly valuable. You can't even put a number on it so number one going to change the narrative number to face your fears and face those fears with someone else number three and i'm gonna put this link. This is a great article will put this link in the show notes. You can check out this entire article yourself but practice self compassion. Think of it. Think of what. You're going through right now and think of that in someone else's perspective like if someone else had the same challenges you were having right. Now maybe your child is a chronic condition or your parent or your spouse and they came to you and said hey i. I'm having this problem you know. My wife had a cancer scare. She had many stroke and then We sort of know what's going on. Oh gosh i i don't know what to do. What would you do. Chances are you would be compassionate with them and we know fear versity they can make us feel really alone and we wonder why were the only ones feeling this way and what exactly is wrong with us and check chances are. There's nothing wrong with us at all. You know the there's this real problem with And with i within the veteran community that we all seem to think we're alone and the truth is were not and another reason why you need those strong relationships so you can remember. Hey i'm not alone this but practice self compassion be compassionate to yourself number four meditate and. I know that meditation sometimes gets a bad rap. But i will say. I've tried it myself meditation. Mindfulness and it is a wonderful stress. Reliever i will let you do your own research on that. But there is such value in meditation number. Five and this one is critically important. Cultivate forgiveness. And here's the thing. When it comes to a chronic condition of family member whether that's your spouse or child or your parent or or sibling you can sometimes get this. You can get mad right. And what is there to be mad at. Who is there to be mad at. Well you know you can be that nature you can be mad at god. You can be frustrated but holding a grudge is only going to hold you back. And and that expands far beyond just the Know caught debating forgiveness for forgiveness. Sake right extends will beyond that in well beyond the chronicle condition idea and goes further into your entire life because my pastor says it like this he says holding a grudge against someone is like setting yourself on fire and hoping. The other person dies from smoke inhalation. I know sometimes we feel like man. I've got to hold on to this grudge. I'm not going to forgive but cultivate forgiveness. And there's an entire chapter dedicated to forgiveness in the resolve book. And so i love you to check that out Head over to kurds fight again. Dot com click on. Get the book and you can find out more about forgiveness what that looks like. In the veteran's life look stress and struggles come in many forms in life adversity trauma. Fear shame betrayal of trust. Look there's a lot of things you can do though that can help you learn to cultivate forgiveness so those five science backs strategies to build resilience number one change the narrative face your fears in practice. Self compassion go easier self number four meditate again. You do your own homework. Do your own research there. Maybe it works for you. Maybe it doesn't. But i know in my own life it has helped kaminsky and number five avait forgiveness l look. I know we have a lot of questions. We all have a lot of questions in our lives but the most important question we can ask ourselves is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith. In jesus christ while i hope this episode has helped. I'd definitely hope that you've gotten something out of it. If you have would you go to. I tunes and leave us a five star review. That would be amazing. And if you if you didn't like the episode and you're like hey. I learned something. Would you please go leave five star review. Those reviews actually helped so much. If you're like you know what. I'll leave review but maybe not five stars both. We'd like to hear those two so again. If you have any questions for us at all that you would like us to address here own the show. Send us a message podcasts. At courage to fight again dot com. And like i said at the beginning of the show. If it's on your mind it's worth exploring. Well thank you so much for listening. I'll see you next time We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.

A Medical Mystery And Patient Advocacy With Mackenzie Kimes

"Why don't we give people a little bit of back story. You are a nurse correct. Yes how long have you been. How have you been practicing. So i will have been a nurse for seven years on this july. So seven years. My background is mainly in pediatrics. Am a certified pediatric nurse So my story really comes from and my passion for nursing really comes from my own personal experiences I decided that. I wanted to go into nursing like in high school. And things like that Is really have a clue as to what i wanted to do. I actually was a national level. Figure skater up through college and so yes as ing. Thank you so. I was training like six hours a day six days. A week Traveling nationally internationally competitions. So that was like my huge focus in life at that point was to train and to compete and kind of work my way up the rankings and figure skating the and so that's kind of where my mind was and then That's kind of when all my health. Struggles started to begin was when i was in high school I had been having some pains. Gi issues I was getting abdominal pain. Every time i was eating. And i kept going back to the pediatrician like oh intestinal virus like it sometimes takes awhile to pass like i think everything is ok but just keep going. You'll be okay and it just kept nagging nagging. It wasn't getting any better. And as an athlete i mean i was training six hours bags so when i wasn't able to eat it was really my training. When you have to eat to keep up the calories alone that you were oh yes exactly and so. It was just affecting so many areas of my life and ironically. I was in florida on vacation with my family. When my pain just got like unbearable i could barely stand up straight and my parents were like we've had enough of this. We're going to go to the closest er and so they took me there and it actually was kind of laying a small community hospital and so they're like okay. We'll do some imaging things like that and they ended up doing a t. scan and they came back and you could tell that something was not right and they were like. We need to do some further testing. We saw something concerning on your skin but we don't want to jump to conclusions so we just have more testing that we need to do and so they ended up doing and ultrasound. And i just remember looking at ultrasound techs faced during this and she just kept getting closer and closer to the screen. Now i there's something there's something not right and i felt so scared and so afraid at the time because they weren't really being very vocal about what was going on so i was just kind of sitting waiting and after they kind of got all the testing done they came in and kind of sat me my parents down and they were like so we are just like a small community hospital and based off of what we see on the scans on. You have a two liter mass of blood in your abdomen and we don't really know we don't really know where it's like. What caused it or why. It's there but we are not equipped to treat you here so we need to transfer you and at the time. They knew that the mass was related to my female track system. But they just didn't really know what was causing it and so it took a long time for a hospital to accept me because on one hand i was only fifteen at the time so i was technically a pediatric patient but was having a very non pediatric problem. But then the adult hospitals wouldn't accept me. Because i was only fifteen and so it a long time to kind of even just get hostile to accept me and so they ended up taking two on the closest teaching hospital. Bear was pediatric floors located within an adult hospital. Also it was like the perfect fit. Because i was able to kind of see all sides of things and so on when i went there more. Scans things like bad and we're seeing all sorts of specialists and they came to the conclusion that i had what is called uterus elvis and so essentially i've honestly never heard of that. Yes it's pretty rare and uterine. Anomalies are not super rare in women but my form of the anomaly is very rare and so essentially how they explained it to me was when you are fetus developing female. Start with two separate female tracks. And then they're supposed to fuse together so mine never actually used. It stayed in two separate tracks and on my one side. Do you mean like your uterus. Never fully fused together or yes. Okay so i had to uterit- technically and two services and two internal baginda canals.

"gi" Discussed on Functional Medicine Research with Dr. Nikolas Hedberg

"Oh sis are one of the sets of of kind of consequences from these long term infections and the other sort of wrinkles at the whole picture is Patients can also continue to have symptoms even after infections have been resolved and that's kind of a growing recognition based on the fact that there are persistent changes in the immune system and also with the microbiome after a number of different types of gi infections and in those changes can go on potentially and contribute to things like inflammatory bowel disease ibs even conditions Right yells i'll see your siniya draw politica sometimes lasting for a while especially in thyroiditis patients hashimoto's and then also see gre a- and cryptosporidium sometimes hanging out for a while sometimes if they have a dog They can be and they let the dog lick their lips. You know the face allot. I'll see girardi a- issues with that sometimes so yeah that's a good point. Some of these can last for a while and you kind of have to hunt down the source of reinfection. Are you seeing anything similar like that in any of these markers are we do and i would say the most likely One that we see that that kinda applies to that scenario would be h pylori So that is one of the markers at often times when clinicians treat they decide that it's likely to be causing symptoms. They treat even with cases where they see symptom improvement. They may do a retest and see that. It's still there now. Of course it's important to pay attention to the level so oftentimes they'll start off saying well. It looks like this protocol was not effective. But when you compare the before and after the numbers show that it reduced in many of those cases you know by a factor of ten or more so it is significantly reduced in. That could be why the symptoms are better. But it's still there now. Not big question of is that okay at a low level is h. pylori really causing problems and it's not necessary to eliminate it.

Interpreting a GI-MAP Stool Test

"So we're gonna be talking about the diagnostic solutions lab g. I. map tests and we're gonna cover interpretation. You know what these markers mean and so for all the practitioners listening. They'll have a a strong idea of how to approach this test and And how to use these things clinically. So what are we. Start with Take it from the top in the pathogen section. And i wanted to ask you specifically about c diff there's toxin a and toxin b cost radium difficile Markers on this test. And what is your interpretation of this if it's positive and the patient is symptomatic and then you treat them and they're no longer symptomatic but the talks in still shows up on the stool tests. Can you elaborate a little bit on that type of presentation. sure now. i haven't personally seen that particular scenario but in it's important to keep in mind the lot of people can can be carriers of c diff so the majority of time that we see it. detected positive whether it's low levels or high levels. Typically patients don't have the classic symptoms so that suggests that they're probably just a carrier And there's sort of a kind of a gray area. In between were there is still maybe some effects of c diff on of course that's one of the purposes of looking at the markers on map like cow protecting zondi lynn etcetera to see if there's to be any evidence that may be having impact even if there aren't a symptom so We're also learning a lot more from research about factors that control or influence the ability of various pathogens to thrive and also whether or not they can cause infection or if they have their typical pathogenic effects so That's essentially factors that influence bureau. So one of the first things. I want to mention is All the the microbial markers on gi map are assess based on detection of dna on so when you're looking at dna you're looking at detection of the organisms or the genes but not necessarily whether the genes are being expressed on. That's definitely true for toxins so lots of research has been coming out in recent years in terms of again as i mentioned things regulate toxins and it's very specific so pathogens tend to only express those toxins under very specific conditions when conditions are favorable for them. So for example if you've detected a c diff and it releasing up with what's going on with the patients Symptomatically and you decide to treat and then on a re-test symptoms are better but the cdc is still detected. That's telling you that it's still there but you may have improved the gut environment to the point where they're not expressing their toxins at that point so they may just at that point. Become carriers

I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show.

Maybe greg we can start with you. Tell me a bit more about your own transition story what you did right what you wish. You would have known things like that sure. Well you know when. I got out of those one clive in the military. I went through paramedic school in my last year in the military. So i was busy guy for you know. Fourteen sixteen months in the last days in the military. I was also going to civilian paramedic school. So i didn't sleep in as i got out. I worked as a paramedic and did fine. And then i realized that really didn't make a whole heck of a lot of money for all of the responsibilities that i had and that i wanted to do more but i wasn't quite sure how to do. And if i if. I known then what i know now. I would have in fact on to law school however i was a single parent of a two year old and a five year old and i did that for more than fifteen years and i can assure you that. There's nothing fun about going full time college and also trying to get You know to be a good parent and to provide the income necessary and i had that entrepreneurial spirit and i wanted to grow in in and have a big business that that was bringing the wealth i wanted and building it from my retirement and it just There wasn't a lot of of a maps out there. Do this do this do this do this. And through twenty five years of experience. I figured it out and and we've done well and i'm in. I'm thrilled with my past. The navy taught me so much about responsibility and accountability and and those are certainly tenants to be an entrepreneur. No question about it but there was no road map. There was no getting out of the military. Didn't here's your step plans being successful on your own It was it was really hard. So i'm glad to be your health. Talk about that in the journey Will tell us about you and your journey. It was definitely a different Yeah absolutely so i was. How do i even begin this When i joined the military. I joined in forty days. Forty five days before nine. Eleven and I was an architecture student at the time. Indiana national guard kind of do a my weekend. Warriors thing and In after nine. Eleven i i just couldn't physically sit there and design buildings that we're gonna be used to blow people and caused devastation. I wanted to change that. And so i went active duty and went to school and in sadly my entire time in the military was was spent in school one school to the next and in one of those schools. I got banged up. Injured prior to going getting acceptance to west point from enlisted to the academy so i went to west point for two years while i was there. Got my injury that i sustained during active duty. The kid exacerbated to the point that i could no longer sir and unceremoniously. I went home with a ten percent disability. Seven seven hundred eighty bucks or something like that. Night came from west point to sit on my parents. Couch i legitimately want to move. I didn't even know your podcast existed until last week but eyesight. Now what what the heck am i gonna do the rest of my life. I had zero idea. I went from the premier leadership institute in the world to not knowing. I didn't know what the heck did so I decided that applied at schools Just just keep the ball moving and Quickly went to indiana university. Got into the business. School in really just fell in love with entrepreneurship and i let that passion takeover You know my healing process from you. Know both physical and emotional fiercely all of it. I needed to mend myself after coming out of the military. And it's a hell of a won't talk to make that work but Anyway yeah i mean. The transition was man. I don i even describe the transition with it was so unbelievably difficult. It shouldn't need to in needed to be a conversation with a counselor commonality military that said you know. What do you want. do the rest of your life. This is the direction you go and go. Do it can i. It was a lot of soul searching to find. It ought to be honest. But now i've been imagined doing anything else. Couldn't imagine sitting my day any other way when i do and holy shit i get paid for it. I mean oh my god. That's the best. The best thing in the world i completely agree with you will on on that. Come out and you're just in this hot this this song in this hayes in your you have so little direction and even if you had a career counselor to try to talk to you. I don't know if it's just you don't know what you're doing in life because you're so mean you don't stand different concepts yet but man you're just lost wandering out there in and Yeah i grabbed me by accident eck and smack me up a little bit. I do right by sagar i absolutely. I think if there's one thing that i absolutely did right was i I jumped head head on into school and education and building might tool set. Because i wasn't relying solely on the things that i learned in the military to to be jumping off point. I realized i had a heck of a lot of catching up to do. And and that's where the education started for me And obviously i didn't quit. And in fact i found a way to make sure that i didn't have to pay for which was really you know that was. The true transition story was okay. Hang on a second Your bettering yourself. And you're getting somebody else. Pay the bill. This this is something should write a book about Because a lot of that cedeno that hidden. I mean that was one of my biggest struggles was coming out and being twenty five seven a two year old and a five year old that i was literally racing by myself and i was taking eighteen credit hours Getting my degree in biochemistry with minor in english lit. And i you know eighteen credit hours trying to take care to five hundred worked at the same time you know you can get loans and all the rest of it but if you don't have a good nation in what's possible. I had no idea. I was eligible for vote. Rehab you know. When i went i had gi bill and believe it or not. The college never applied the gi bill. I paid for everything out of my own. And even though i was eligible for the gi. Bill is all the time it's really sad is what it comes down to that. We have the capability had had. I recognized what was was there army. And i recognize these benefits. Were there than i could have slowed down and cast in my kids. Now's a roof over their head and not had trying to kill myself to get through it in a short period of time And it would have changed the trajectory of my life. I you know. I watched medical school. Go out the door. Because i couldn't do an internship and be a single parent and i couldn't do medical school and be a single parent. Too young kids had. I had those benefits and recognized that they were available to me. I could have done more. I could've figure things out that's not bad. I mean i. I love where i'm at today but it could have been so much easier. Had i known about all the benefits that are out there. Not just disability. But is as you're talking about. Well the both rehab and the gi bill and things don't get taken advantage of profitable now. I was just gonna say we. We actually just talked about that. I think it was in the last episode about gi bill and how you can leverage it with the Volk rehab well. Vr program now but Leverage that you know those two you know really great benefits to you get further education. Everything i know when i got out You know. I'm sitting in the end of the transition not unit but are transitioning out processing briefings. Right and they're telling us about the va. I knew zero about the. Va except that veterans. Go to the. Va that's really all. I knew about it and they and they told us like. Hey go to the hospital like on post go hospital get your medical records and take him upstairs. Because i had a v. Va office fort hood. They had a. Va office up. Like start for a said okay. Cool and so. I took them and they said okay. Cool we got your medical records like okay to me. It was just another task. I had. I literally had no idea that i was submitting my va. Disability claim audios. Like somebody told me to give you these. I guess this is how i get officially into the va and become a veteran so to speak at someone like your most crucial claim and there you are getting pushed by the system through their said that you're not on purpose fan. That was done on purpose for years and years. And call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever but the truth of the matter is this is mon mon Insurance company pan out benefits and they've got an minimize this as much as far as sharing and you know the the the the hard part was to that by the time i did my first what do you call that first. Compensation exam with the with the doctor or the nurse practitioner. Whatever she was I'm still in tough guy mode. I'm still like yeah. Her s- i'm good. I can you know. I'm sure i can just suck it up for a little while. I didn't realize it's supposed to go there and just be blatantly. Honest like holy crap. This hurts this hurts. This hurts and i can't do this anymore. And i just went. I was like no. This is fine. Do you have anything no. i'm fine. no i'm good. I had no. I d like there was no. There's no plan there's no. There's no one at that point in the transition to to really tell me. Hey this is what you should be doing. This is the level of scrutiny. That they're going to look at your. Va claim with and this is the level of of intensity you need to put to it when you submit it so we can talk about that a little bit like what. What was your guys. Experience with The va disability claims program. I i know with mine drag. Mom i was cormon and i and i was I was one of the supervisors of the ambulance service in and they will. Hospital orlando in the training center training center there and when i sat down out processing with personnel. I still to this day. Remember sitting down at that gray metal desk. And here's somebody that's not much older than me on the other side of the desk in. They're typing out my dvd fourteen. And they're asking me different questions on a checklist and you know how many problems not have any problems you know. Got both of my legs. I got both my arms You know i can hear you talking fine which goes exactly to the point. You're making aaron. And i don't think it was bravado on my side is much as not understanding to transition process and the purpose of the questions being asked as they apply to me in my future not to mention. Let's let's young. Were coming from the military where it's shut the hell up in suck it up. Well it's not only that pervasiveness in the military will absolutely but there's a pervasiveness in the medical side on top of that of we don't go to call unless we are on death's doorstep i had owns and you know i'm i'm urinating blood. I went to the er. I was terrified. I didn't know anything about kidney. Stones about point. I tell you when you look down. Ten o'clock at night and the toilet bowl is you're ready to go to bed. You see bright red blood. You're going to the er right now when they didn't ask me about that as i al processed. I didn't recognize that. The jimmy stones that my kidneys continued to put out than started in the military. Were something that should have been taking care of for in evaluating before on the disability side. And so you know as as a cormon. My knees hurt my back. Hurt dr a are you know my gird. hey dot. Can you write me. Something for this. Ensures tagamet for this there was never any documentation. It was me and my buddy. The doctor who wrote something if i wanted it or b who went to the cabinet and opened up and took out the a hundred older motrin. It took it myself just like i told my fellow shipmates to do or the. You know the marine corps guys that i worked with to do so i mean there was a pervasiveness medicine on top of. What will we say about. The pervasiveness of we have a missions. Do the military. Our mission is to get the dadgum job done. Every single time is not to be standing in sakala. Whine about how this hurts. Don't it well. i'm sorry. I didn't mean now. You know. i think it's for me. I was you know i dealt with something that i deal with. Almost every with almost every veteran client that deal with. It's it's it's a pervasive problem. That every better needs to know you're going to be under compensated for some of your disabilities and you're gonna be overcompensated for some disabilities and when you're coming out of service and you get med boarded for something you know for me. I was hellbent on getting my chest fix chest and backs back rated properly in even though chefs in particular the maximum benefit. I could ever get no matter how hard i tried and no matter what i did was ten percent no matter what so yourself the net absolutely ruined my military career. That is only gonna ever pay me ten percent. I'm sitting. you're banging my head against the wall for at least five years fighting that fight when there was literally nothing i could do. I had to learn the system the right way you gotta do end arounds and connect everything possible to this in order to make sure that your stated appropriately for the actual shit that you're dealing against off that took years to figure out when you don't have somebody holding your hand through the through the that's really true. I mean in my case. I knew the was there that can provides healthcare benefits. But i had a job. I had healthcare benefits. I didn't mean to be a and i correctly and incorrectly depending on how you look at it. I wanted that benefit to be more available my fellow brethren who actually needed it and couldn't make it private healthcare good private healthcare because the. Va does a as much as they get. Beaten up in the news over. they do. Try very hard. You've healthcare Chewed the veterans other. They can't do better but it's not because they're trying to do that. And so i wanted that that benefit of healthcare to be availed more available. My brother and i never looked into. It wasn't until we want to buy a house and property. You're in texas the realtor said. So what's your your disability rating. And which i giggled including talking about and she goes well with your own. You won't have a fun in fee in taxes. You will either of your property taxes reduced or abated completely if you have disability and i said i don't have any disability. I have both my legs and lower. Did she said idiot. I've known you long time. And i know your kidney stone started in service. I know you're back. Problems started from when you were. Emc girl medic in the military in the military. How can you not have this ability rating. And i wasn't out looking for the money. I was making okay money so i never went searching for those benefits and you know that makes that much more difficult woken. Tell you when you're now twenty. Five years ho service. And the g jared processes are really starting to kick in that began in the military to then through this this connection. It would be much easier on him and i if we get the veteran. Who's diagnosed in service with my backers a bit. You know. I have a strain. I have whatever that turns into severe Disabling degenerative disk disease or herniation in those sorts of things. It'd be so much easier if those that are ins new on the way out. I need a copy of my medical records. I need diagnosis in the military. I need imaging. Studies are is cat. Scans whatever to show this. Something started in the military. Because we can tie that together much more easily absolutely and i think with the be. Dd program the benefits Direct delivery program that the provides This new system. I'm helping quite a bit of Servicemembers transition out of the military the contact meteorology and they want help going through their initial claim. You know it's something that You know you can't charge for it's a you know it's a. It's a pro bono thing but the end of the day were taken bets. Soldiers vets who are transitioning out on their first you know their initial claim walking out of the room with a ninety percent. Walk on service. Now we're sitting here fighting on. You know that most important ten percent on the backside to get you to the hundred percent but we're a heck of a lot closer than that thirty percent of the twenty percent that you're getting when you're walking out of there like a hero like you and i are all of us did back at our generation you know there's various services connection is an art. It is not a science. It is an art all day long you. There are ways to stack disabilities on top of each other to maximize your coins. And if you do not know what you are doing you are doing it wrong here. What it takes strength or something. We said to will as a process that that is like everything else that all veterans doing the military. There's a procedure. Here's your procedure. One five and the average veteran doesn't understand it is a legal process. There are statutes. The congress is there are regulations that implement those statues that the va is put out is a legal process and it involves medicine so it's a combination of the legal side in the medical side and the average joe out there doesn't understand the law at that level and doesn't understand medicine at that level to connect all of this stuff together both legally and medically right and so let's dive into the details a little bit of that initial. Va disparity claim you know. Will you talk about it. Being an art and greg you talked about it being a legal proceeding. Is there even a three step. Five step nine step seventeen step process. That veterans can look at and say. Okay here's what i need to do. And here's how. I need to submit that claim. I don't know if there's a five step process but there's definite general over overarching rules that you must consider and And i think most important if i could say This is your kids Number one takeaway take notes Holy shit do. Not shotgun approach your. Va clays do not claim. Every single fingernail do not claim every single to- fungus. It's not gonna get you paid number one and number two. It's going to paint you in a corner so bad no attorney can get you out of just because you have dirty your file. You're talking about non attorneys who are adjudicating legal cases. These people do not practice law. They are practicing what they feel in. Our job is to show what disability looks like as plainly as possible so that we can either capitalize on that person's Motive to assist the veteran or To somehow paint over bad in a file because you absolutely are are leaving a trail of tears when you are claiming a shotgun approach to your to your veterans claims Number step is only claimed things that you are legally entitled to claim so it's going to require a little bit of research on your part to know what you're entitled to but that's that's my claim to everybody number one only clean things that you're entitled Because once you start claiming things that you're not entitled to the most important thing that you can not lose that you just gave away is your a benefit of the doubt that fifty percent and when it's as least as likely as not it's you're full of shit and you're claiming everything under the sun You just lost your fifty percent when it comes to the thing that's going to get you hundred percent. Yeah i think all take off on that in a little bit of of education. The vast majority of raiders as will can tell you are veterans. They want to help their fellow veterans. That's why they get that job. However the vast majority are not attorneys and just like we were talking about procedures few minutes ago. That's what they do. They have a manual called the young twenty one one and it is a procedure manual. They claim they step through the procedures. Won- jews hyperlink year like there for five six hyperlink there is. I wish it was. It's not to say there isn't some feeling in it. I mean there there is they are the trier of fact they get to be the arbitrator in adjudicate the claim but they do get that interpretation on their side in trying to decide. What's right and what's wrong is disconnected is not but it is very procedural. It's they're not looking at line compeer in the law analyzing walleye analyzing the case law even the references to it. They're not opening. No they are now providing a claim. You know it's transitioning to the other point. He made a providing claims that are not shotgun that you're entitled to. What does that mean rethinks. You have a current diagnosis. You have continuity of your condition meaning you. didn't you know. Get a bruise in boot camp. In your thirty years later. Trying to to say i have a problem. You have to be able to document the progression so he is a little bit different than degenerative disk disease that you may have had back pain and service but it didn't really degenerate until a certain point but then it kept getting worse and worse document how it kept getting worse and worse documented in a law whether it's a blood pressure log a headache log of that in law document the continuity of that condition and the third component of that is the next service. How did that. How did service relate to your claim. It didn't have to 'cause it. You could had a car accident while you were stationed florida. That caused an injury service. Puts you in florida. Therefore that disability the you weren't combat got shot and you got that disability but it's still considered service connected because the military had you stationed there so it's not causation. Its relation to. But if you don't have continuity veterans lose every time is you know. Oh i had this. Bigger hangnail. And i had this. This shotgun approach. Yes but that's not a chronic condition. It's a one time edition. Thank you so much will and greg and has been so great heavy on the show. This has been absolutely amazing. we will share some next steps with our audience in the show notes as we don't have time to cover today but this has been so so great guys.

Make yourselves better absolutely. I wish i wish. I got a website to promote them in the middle of fixing it right now so Sadly i've got a lotta latin or the we're working on that Were growing like crazy. This last year and a half. It's been unbelievable in worth To do a little self promotion where we're entirely. We're all veteran. were were all disabled vets. For all young where he's All worked on the inside. Su know how all the systems work so there we'd and accurately communicate with the that's how we run a different off practice than everybody else who's We what these guys who they're fighting against and there's a alive easier way that i hope you've enjoyed this segment of the interview.

How Real Estate Sells Cars with Gina McCartney

"Gina, welcome to . the It show is great to have you speaking to us today. Maybe just to kick things off can you maybe just tell us a bit about Gina McCartney - who you are and some background. . to thank Yes, I'm yourself sure, you so Gi for na McCartney having me here today. Super excited to see both. So my background if i go back to perhaps my brief - youth and into professional career. I really my whole life was distant creative: sculpting, painting, designing and off the back of that passion went to uni studied creative advertising and was destined. ..my path was to become a art director . My very early career was in advertising agencies and spent ten years ing servic some like pretty big clients ilo, . kohl's meyer group. Cbi off foundation and then some order client bmw and many were because of mine and it was during that time that i realized how much i loved as and surprised no surprise. I joined renault. Stralia and joining renault at the time was at a really pivotal point for the business. And that was all about preaching and finding every possible opportunity we could in the market and myra was to introduce the sierra digital program. Really lift the capability of the dealer network from a lead management perspective. Sur getting out outta rot on building confidence back in the network that we were providing leads to them in generating value from office and then from neymar roll moved into a brand and events role and so the full marketing swayed had an awesome time with the business and great team. And then my time was up. When i was tapped on the shoulder for all at anchor pinellas area group been realized real estate dot com to you joined the business not really knowing much about the role. I was joining. He'd go to market manager role and of bain there now close to seven years and moved my way through various segments. So we're two now. Residential business at develop a business emotional property meteorologisy and clients and also to stint in malaysia. And i leave the win. We acquired a southeast asia and helped with the integration of that business side at an awesome korea here. Rei and now run. I tame called the customer. Excellence team and so my team move. Twenty incredibly talented people help support our two hundred thirty sales teams across australia. And that includes the learning development perching old training ogata market siles support collateral and operations analytic. Kpi's commissions incentive sprints and really big a big team mission and vision is to pave the new way of selling and selling clock when you work for rei. Let's bit about my story. Love love gardening love dancing and eighteen. And that's how i spend most of my time let's it's an impressive story. How you you've migrated from during the karate stuff through to or i will now into real estate now. We can't get a bit of understanding as to real estate dot com o. Rei group and what's the back story of real estate. Dot com abc business was born in the garage. Dome koster and for those familiar with john. It's in the eastern suburbs of melbourne and in nineteen ninety five and they came up with a crazy idea of water. We put the photos of property onto online so people can see them on the internet and so literally scanning photo by photo by photo built this web sought. That looks very different today than what did obviously up. Twenty plus years ago and over the years to really brilliant simple idea to gos- and today with the leading australian property portal and we have hundred million plus is it as a month coming to thought trillions of photos from a perspective and yeah we service most property clients around australia and that includes real estate agents property manages developers homebuilders land developers media clients of less amount of probably. But almost all and anyone that wants to reach property. Sega's we do business. You know you've got a really interesting background. Having spent tom and credit in automotive value in real estate can you. Maybe just discuss some of the similarities. Between automotive and real estate i remember when i joined. Ra and it was probably a month thing. I thought wow. I didn't realize there was so many similarities between the two industries. And if i stop from a business structure perspective the similarities of utah franchise groups independence at relationship between head office and you know the small small businesses that are running in local and regional areas. I think that that pressure that applies with a small business to find the raw talent retain talent when there is no professional requirement This note there's no huddle to get into other industry. And i think that is a challenge that are still share today and another real estate industry in particular institute really trying to introduce their professional courses create more opportunities for the right people to enter the industry. So they've got really quality staff sieving consumers invincibles. And i think our remember. That was a challenge in the automotive industry finding the right talent and apprenticeship styles perspective perhaps a bit of bid process. But that was probably one thing that i saw straightaway is a big lesson. In automotive that i think real estate can learn with the handshake. Between sales and after-sales and if you think of the real estate version of that is the sales and rental market now rent rolls the most profitable part of a real estate agency and if you think about the handover in the importance of one to the other the ongoing retention of the customer. I think that's a really important similarity between the two some. I think some best practice sharing could happen more. And then the probably the other big similarity i would say is the is much smarter and much savia and this is probably not exclusive to automotive in real estate but their expectations have increased tenfold. And no longer. Can you get back to a later inquiry within a couple of days. We're now seeing consumer expectations at a couple of minutes. And i think that's something that dealerships deal with daily and you know the the now now now economy that exists within cosima world.

"gi" Discussed on Courage to Fight Again

"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are all ready asking. Don't today show. I want to share three things with you. Just three and here they are. I won't answer the question. Hopefully definitively how do you use post nine eleven. Gi bill number two. I will share with you how to maximize post nine. Eleven bill benefits and finally. I will tell you how you can buy side eleven. Gi bill benefits with another amazing benefits. That you've earned the most notable programs if you're interested in hearing more about that which i have to assume you are stay tuned and you are going to hear every single bit. Stay with us. Who am i. Why am i still here. How can i uncover you. I was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to play. I walked through the pain of job loss of ptsd diagnosis often crippling anxiety by finally discovered the reason. I'm here to earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself. So i wrote a book simply titled resolve resolve is a book that is apologetically faith-based a step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans resolve provides veterans everywhere with the tool to help you step into your new life a life full hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com so today's question surrounds the post nine eleven. Gi bill as no doubt. You've figured out by now and specifically how you use it but the truth is if that was the only question i answered on today's show who would be a very short episode now using the post nine eleven. Gi bill is really really easy now. Of course. I want you to listen to this entire episode and if you do i have a special gift just for you toward the end of the episode. But i'll tell you right upfront. Using the post nine eleven she i bill is probably the easiest thing you will ever do when it comes to taking advantage of the benefits you've earned through your military service now before we dive in. I want to share some of my method with you kind of how we came to put this episode together posted a question on the courage to fight again facebook page. I shared that question on several veteran focused facebook groups and we got more engagement with this single question than with anything we've ever posted and the question was just this is what has been your experience with a post. Nine eleven jabil. We got over eleven hundred comments and i've read almost every single one of them and around ninety nine percent of those responses. Give or take. They were very positive in nature. Talking about how easy it was to us how it was the best benefit you can take advantage of and how to get the most out of the post nine eleven gi bill and not only did those who responded answer that question but they answered so many more as well man here. I am rolling right into the episode. And i haven't even introduced myself yet so if you were here for the first time you may be like. Who is this guy. Talking about. The post nine eleven. Gi bill well. My name is aaron perkins. I'm us army. Combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and as you've probably already guessed on the host of this podcast so let's dive right in at the top of the show. I promise you three things. Let's tackle the first one. How do i use my post nine. Eleven gi bill. Now i'm going to assume you're already eligible for the gi bill. So i'm not going to dive into that part. But i will post a link in the show notes about your eligibility and how you can determine your eligibility in case you need to dig into that a bit more but step one is apply for the benefits on the va website. And guess what. I'll post that link in the show notes as well. You need a few things when you apply. Here's what you need your social security number your military history and that just basic military history. You don't need your full your your details of where you're stationed in when you were stationed there and all of that. He just need basically the years you serve and the date service egypt education history of the schools. You've attended other degrees. You hold things like that and finally basic information about the school or trading facility that you want to attend because you don't have to attend just a traditional community college or university or state scored like that. You can attend a variety of training facilities. Let's say you wanted to become an h vac technician. There are schools or training facilities that you can learn how to do that if you want to become a cybersecurity expert while their schools training facilities we can do that so again just some basic information about the school or the training facility that you want to attend now. You can do this by mail. Apply by mail using the va form or obviously the most preferred way is to apply online. That's going to be the fastest takes about thirty days or so for the va to verify eligibility. And that's it for step one. Step two you're just going to reach out to the school. the understanding. here's that you've already been accepted or you're well on your way to being accepted to the school. So you contact the school and request to speak to the va rep and these are your best friends in the post nine eleven gi bill business. Now i know i've heard some mixed reviews about. Va reps But they do know the school and they know the va. So they're going to be able to share some things with you. Some indepth information that you're not gonna be able to find him the va website. You're not gonna find on the school's website you're going to have to talk to them directly and step three. Follow the directions of your. Va school rep number. Four step four. Get your education. It's really that easy now. Look with nearly all things. Va there are multiple paths to get to the same destination but those steps has share with you apply online. Contact the school link with your. Va rep. That really is the simplest and most direct route to taking. Hold of your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits. So if i would have had just a single question for this episode. We'd already be done. But i promise you i would share with you and the next is really important and that is how to maximize your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits now. There are a bunch of ways to do this. And i'll mention those in passing and you can do your own homework and figure out if those are something you want or need to explore. But i want to focus on just two ways to maximize your benefit so your options. As far as maximizing your benefit goes find a yellow ribbon. School is one option tuition assistance. Top up that's another program that the va has. You may be eligible for you may need to look into There's also the option of a stem scholarship science technology engineering or math. If you're majoring in any of those categories you may be eligible for scholarship. Veteran education courses aka vet tech also tutorial assistance if you're struggling with biology or chemistry or calculus or whatever may be and you need a tutor to get tutorial assistance with the. Va actually pay you to go to a tutor. She can pass that course now here the two i want to talk about all the ones i just mentioned are in this section of the website that talks about the posting. I love jabil bill. But all the ones i mentioned in this section are in a section called additional information very simple and one of those is finding yo a yellow ribbon school. Excuse me and the second is not mentioned in that additional information but it is getting that monthly housing allowance and again. I'm going to dive into that but let's talk about the yellow ribbons school here for just a minute. So the yellow ribbon program can help you pay for hire out of state private school or graduate school tuition. That the post nine eleven. Gi bill does not cover so tuition might be higher than what the gi bill will cover or you want to attend a school as a nonresident student. Non resident of that state in other words. Another thing this is more of a side note. Not yellow ribbon schools specific. Your state may also provide additional benefits for you as a veteran. And that is something you should look into with your state. Truth be told your. Va rep at your chosen. School should be able to answer that question for you or at the very least be able to point you in the right direction. All right so that is the yellow ribbon school piece. I wanted to talk about and the other piece. That's not listed in additional information. section is section one. Oh seven sounds very boring but it's very very important. And that is the location based housing allowance the location based housing allowance. Now you will get a housing allowance for using the post nine eleven gi bill and if you attend all online classes this rate that it is set at is half the national average of an e five with dependence for their basic allowance for housing. So that doesn't change unless the national average changes. I know when i was taking a few online courses. It was eight hundred dollars a month. I don't remember the exact number but we're the location based housing allowance. Really comes into play is when you were attending in person classes. Now i want to set the record straight here then. There's this common misconception that your housing allowance rate is based on where you live. This is not the case. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you're attending classes. I'm going to say that again. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you are attending classes. Let me just share a little story from my own experience. I decided to take some undergraduate courses my undergraduate degree before went into the army. But i wanted to just take advantage of the post nine. Eleven she i built a little bit wasn't ready to work on my master's degree or anything so i was like you know what. Maybe i'll just take some courses. I know i have to take at least one of those in person. So i can get that in person Housing allowance right that location based housing loans. Well right up. The road from probably ten minutes or less away was a campus of the school. I was wanting to attend. They had multiple campuses all over the city and the housing allowance. Right there was. I don't know eight nine hundred dollars. Something like that. But if i would drive an extra seven or eight minutes i could get the location. Based housing allowance ended up being like eleven. Eleven sixty seven. Ninety i don't remember now. It's been a few years but i was like. Hey i will totally drive a few extra minutes to get the extra couple hundred dollars or so a month because to three hundred dollars a month because that just makes more sense because i want to get the same education and going to get the same course the same credit for the course. Why not just drive a few extra minutes so again. The housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you were attending classes. And i just mentioned this but keep in mind. You only need to attend a single class in person. that's it you can take the rest of your classes online and still collect the housing allowance based on the zip code of where you attending that one class. Now let's talk about kovic for a minute though we're we're still in the midst of this pandemic. I don't wanna say the middle. Hopefully we're nearing the end of it. But cova has missed a lot of things up our way of life our jobs our relationships a lot of things and it has changed the way a lot of schools do business and that is i'll say inadvertently affecting those of us trying to use the post nine eleven. Gi bill and some schools. They're not even holding in person. Classes yet and and veterans are facing this never before seen challenge and in fact. This was one of the concerns. someone maybe more than one person brought up when i ask about experiences with the post nine eleven. Gi bill. so. I just mentioned that you get paid at half the national average of an e five with dependence if you attend school all align. Let's say that's eight hundred dollars but if you attend at least one class in person you'll receive your housing allowance based on zip code of the school year attending so again when i attended in person. Who's eleven dollars a month so it made sense to at least attend one school. Excuse me or one class in person and this is where co vid really comes into play some schools. Excuse me some schools or universities that were previously holding in person. Classes do not even have the option to register for in person classes. Now which means that. If he veteran was attending in person in receiving that in-person housing allowance rate that housing allowance rate has suddenly changed to the online rate. And i've done a good bit of research into this. I have not found anything in my research for my conversations with veterans or anything social media no way to really get around this so to speak. So if you found a way to continue receiving the in-person housing allowance rate while attending only online due to covid. I would love if you would share that with us by reaching out to me at podcast at courage to fight again dot com. So i can send it out to the rest of our listeners. Finally and i'm really running low on time here but i promise three things at the top of the show how to use your gi bill. We cover that outta to maximize your gi bill. We cover that and now how to combine your gi bill benefits with another benefit. You may or may not have heard of and that benefit is vocational rehabilitation or volk rehab as it's often called now technically its known as veteran readiness and employment or vr and e but no one actually calls it that or at least not yet. It just hasn't a katelyn voc rehab. Though in fact is probably a better benefit than the post nine eleven. Gi bill pays for literally everything. You need special equipment for your degree. Plan pays for that. You have to pay for parking at your school. Pays for that. You'd pay for books pays for that pays for pretty much everything and just about anything you do that has to do with getting your education and i'm saying this because i want to reiterate it vo korea will pay for that and so it does seem at least initially to be a better benefit than the post nine eleven gi bill. But here's where you can. Combine them nate. Because you can't use them both at once you can use either one or the other because if you use vocal rehab or any it will cut into the total time you can use your gi bill. So here's the hack if you will if you use all thirty days of your post nine eleven gi bill and then apply for your vote rehab benefit. Frankly i'd opt for a bit more. Forty five sixty days. Something like that just to be on the safe side. But thirty days minimum is what i found volk rehab or vr knee or whatever. You want to call. It goes through a different process than the post nine eleven. Gi bill but leveraging these two benefits together is really the best of both worlds. And here's why. I say that because let's say you use just about all of your post nine eleven gi bill to get your bachelor's degree in psychology. But you wanna be a licensed professional counselor. Will you need at least a master's degree for that and you've used almost all of your jive. Ill what are you gonna do. Well then you go to your local. Vr knee or volk rehab counselor and say. Hey here's what i need to do. And then you move into the vote rehab program now again. Your mileage may vary. Because i've heard again a lot of mixed stories mixed reviews of working with folk rehab counselor but that is your process and again i will post a link to these processes or actually there's a few links but all these processes and all these resources in the show with that we have reached the end of season six episode. So what are your questions voice memo on your phone and send it to podcast kurds. Fight again dot com. So what's on your mind. What questions are you asking. What are your family members asking or join the post. Nine eleven veterans families facebook group and post your question. There have block of questions but the most important question we can ask ourselves. Is this have. I accept the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ well. I'll see you right back here. Two weeks from the day and the next veteran questions we'll be asking is this. How do i increase my va. Disability rating ohio and for the special gift. I promised every thursday evening is hosting a sous vide for justice guys who are veterans. Sorry ladies you're coming soon. The training for that. We will be walking through the resolved journey. Together get your copy of resolve for thirty percent off using the code asked and just head over to courage fight again dot com and click on. Get the book and if you like to join the group on the lincoln the show notes to let me know. And i'll be in touch tone next time. Thanks for We served now.

S6 E4 - How do I use my Post-9/11 GI Bill? - FULL

"Welcome to we served now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are all ready asking. Don't today show. I want to share three things with you. Just three and here they are. I won't answer the question. Hopefully definitively how do you use post nine eleven. Gi bill number two. I will share with you how to maximize post nine. Eleven bill benefits and finally. I will tell you how you can buy side eleven. Gi bill benefits with another amazing benefits. That you've earned the most notable programs if you're interested in hearing more about that which i have to assume you are stay tuned and you are going to hear every single bit. Stay with us. Who am i. Why am i still here. How can i uncover you. I was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to play. I walked through the pain of job loss of ptsd diagnosis often crippling anxiety by finally discovered the reason. I'm here to earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself. So i wrote a book simply titled resolve resolve is a book that is apologetically faith-based a step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans resolve provides veterans everywhere with the tool to help you step into your new life a life full hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com so today's question surrounds the post nine eleven. Gi bill as no doubt. You've figured out by now and specifically how you use it but the truth is if that was the only question i answered on today's show who would be a very short episode now using the post nine eleven. Gi bill is really really easy now. Of course. I want you to listen to this entire episode and if you do i have a special gift just for you toward the end of the episode. But i'll tell you right upfront. Using the post nine eleven she i bill is probably the easiest thing you will ever do when it comes to taking advantage of the benefits you've earned through your military service now before we dive in. I want to share some of my method with you kind of how we came to put this episode together posted a question on the courage to fight again facebook page. I shared that question on several veteran focused facebook groups and we got more engagement with this single question than with anything we've ever posted and the question was just this is what has been your experience with a post. Nine eleven jabil. We got over eleven hundred comments and i've read almost every single one of them and around ninety nine percent of those responses. Give or take. They were very positive in nature. Talking about how easy it was to us how it was the best benefit you can take advantage of and how to get the most out of the post nine eleven gi bill and not only did those who responded answer that question but they answered so many more as well man here. I am rolling right into the episode. And i haven't even introduced myself yet so if you were here for the first time you may be like. Who is this guy. Talking about. The post nine eleven. Gi bill well. My name is aaron perkins. I'm us army. Combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos. I'm the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and as you've probably already guessed on the host of this podcast so let's dive right in at the top of the show. I promise you three things. Let's tackle the first one. How do i use my post nine. Eleven gi bill. Now i'm going to assume you're already eligible for the gi bill. So i'm not going to dive into that part. But i will post a link in the show notes about your eligibility and how you can determine your eligibility in case you need to dig into that a bit more but step one is apply for the benefits on the va website. And guess what. I'll post that link in the show notes as well. You need a few things when you apply. Here's what you need your social security number your military history and that just basic military history. You don't need your full your your details of where you're stationed in when you were stationed there and all of that. He just need basically the years you serve and the date service egypt education history of the schools. You've attended other degrees. You hold things like that and finally basic information about the school or trading facility that you want to attend because you don't have to attend just a traditional community college or university or state scored like that. You can attend a variety of training facilities. Let's say you wanted to become an h vac technician. There are schools or training facilities that you can learn how to do that if you want to become a cybersecurity expert while their schools training facilities we can do that so again just some basic information about the school or the training facility that you want to attend now. You can do this by mail. Apply by mail using the va form or obviously the most preferred way is to apply online. That's going to be the fastest takes about thirty days or so for the va to verify eligibility. And that's it for step one. Step two you're just going to reach out to the school. the understanding. here's that you've already been accepted or you're well on your way to being accepted to the school. So you contact the school and request to speak to the va rep and these are your best friends in the post nine eleven gi bill business. Now i know i've heard some mixed reviews about. Va reps But they do know the school and they know the va. So they're going to be able to share some things with you. Some indepth information that you're not gonna be able to find him the va website. You're not gonna find on the school's website you're going to have to talk to them directly and step three. Follow the directions of your. Va school rep number. Four step four. Get your education. It's really that easy now. Look with nearly all things. Va there are multiple paths to get to the same destination but those steps has share with you apply online. Contact the school link with your. Va rep. That really is the simplest and most direct route to taking. Hold of your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits. So if i would have had just a single question for this episode. We'd already be done. But i promise you i would share with you and the next is really important and that is how to maximize your post nine eleven. Gi bill benefits now. There are a bunch of ways to do this. And i'll mention those in passing and you can do your own homework and figure out if those are something you want or need to explore. But i want to focus on just two ways to maximize your benefit so your options. As far as maximizing your benefit goes find a yellow ribbon. School is one option tuition assistance. Top up that's another program that the va has. You may be eligible for you may need to look into There's also the option of a stem scholarship science technology engineering or math. If you're majoring in any of those categories you may be eligible for scholarship. Veteran education courses aka vet tech also tutorial assistance if you're struggling with biology or chemistry or calculus or whatever may be and you need a tutor to get tutorial assistance with the. Va actually pay you to go to a tutor. She can pass that course now here the two i want to talk about all the ones i just mentioned are in this section of the website that talks about the posting. I love jabil bill. But all the ones i mentioned in this section are in a section called additional information very simple and one of those is finding yo a yellow ribbon school. Excuse me and the second is not mentioned in that additional information but it is getting that monthly housing allowance and again. I'm going to dive into that but let's talk about the yellow ribbons school here for just a minute. So the yellow ribbon program can help you pay for hire out of state private school or graduate school tuition. That the post nine eleven. Gi bill does not cover so tuition might be higher than what the gi bill will cover or you want to attend a school as a nonresident student. Non resident of that state in other words. Another thing this is more of a side note. Not yellow ribbon schools specific. Your state may also provide additional benefits for you as a veteran. And that is something you should look into with your state. Truth be told your. Va rep at your chosen. School should be able to answer that question for you or at the very least be able to point you in the right direction. All right so that is the yellow ribbon school piece. I wanted to talk about and the other piece. That's not listed in additional information. section is section one. Oh seven sounds very boring but it's very very important. And that is the location based housing allowance the location based housing allowance. Now you will get a housing allowance for using the post nine eleven gi bill and if you attend all online classes this rate that it is set at is half the national average of an e five with dependence for their basic allowance for housing. So that doesn't change unless the national average changes. I know when i was taking a few online courses. It was eight hundred dollars a month. I don't remember the exact number but we're the location based housing allowance. Really comes into play is when you were attending in person classes. Now i want to set the record straight here then. There's this common misconception that your housing allowance rate is based on where you live. This is not the case. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you're attending classes. I'm going to say that again. Your housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you are attending classes. Let me just share a little story from my own experience. I decided to take some undergraduate courses my undergraduate degree before went into the army. But i wanted to just take advantage of the post nine. Eleven she i built a little bit wasn't ready to work on my master's degree or anything so i was like you know what. Maybe i'll just take some courses. I know i have to take at least one of those in person. So i can get that in person Housing allowance right that location based housing loans. Well right up. The road from probably ten minutes or less away was a campus of the school. I was wanting to attend. They had multiple campuses all over the city and the housing allowance. Right there was. I don't know eight nine hundred dollars. Something like that. But if i would drive an extra seven or eight minutes i could get the location. Based housing allowance ended up being like eleven. Eleven sixty seven. Ninety i don't remember now. It's been a few years but i was like. Hey i will totally drive a few extra minutes to get the extra couple hundred dollars or so a month because to three hundred dollars a month because that just makes more sense because i want to get the same education and going to get the same course the same credit for the course. Why not just drive a few extra minutes so again. The housing allowance is based on the zip code of where you were attending classes. And i just mentioned this but keep in mind. You only need to attend a single class in person. that's it you can take the rest of your classes online and still collect the housing allowance based on the zip code of where you attending that one class. Now let's talk about kovic for a minute though we're we're still in the midst of this pandemic. I don't wanna say the middle. Hopefully we're nearing the end of it. But cova has missed a lot of things up our way of life our jobs our relationships a lot of things and it has changed the way a lot of schools do business and that is i'll say inadvertently affecting those of us trying to use the post nine eleven. Gi bill and some schools. They're not even holding in person. Classes yet and and veterans are facing this never before seen challenge and in fact. This was one of the concerns. someone maybe more than one person brought up when i ask about experiences with the post nine eleven. Gi bill. so. I just mentioned that you get paid at half the national average of an e five with dependence if you attend school all align. Let's say that's eight hundred dollars but if you attend at least one class in person you'll receive your housing allowance based on zip code of the school year attending so again when i attended in person. Who's eleven dollars a month so it made sense to at least attend one school. Excuse me or one class in person and this is where co vid really comes into play some schools. Excuse me some schools or universities that were previously holding in person. Classes do not even have the option to register for in person classes. Now which means that. If he veteran was attending in person in receiving that in-person housing allowance rate that housing allowance rate has suddenly changed to the online rate. And i've done a good bit of research into this. I have not found anything in my research for my conversations with veterans or anything social media no way to really get around this so to speak. So if you found a way to continue receiving the in-person housing allowance rate while attending only online due to covid. I would love if you would share that with us by reaching out to me at podcast at courage to fight again dot com. So i can send it out to the rest of our listeners. Finally and i'm really running low on time here but i promise three things at the top of the show how to use your gi bill. We cover that outta to maximize your gi bill. We cover that and now how to combine your gi bill benefits with another benefit. You may or may not have heard of and that benefit is vocational rehabilitation or volk rehab as it's often called now technically its known as veteran readiness and employment or vr and e but no one actually calls it that or at least not yet.

A highlight from S6 E3 - What is VA Solid Start?

"Welcome to we serve now. What were we seek to answer. The questions. veterans and their families are already asking that stays question is about a relatively new. Va program called va solid. Start and on today's show. We'll be answering all your questions about this program. What is it. who's it four. What's the goal of the program who's eligible and perhaps most importantly the actions that you need to take to not only take advantage of this program but also to take advantage of ball. The va benefits that you've earned through your military service. And i thought who better to answer this question than the person who came up with the program. So some of you may have heard of dr paul lawrence who is the head of the veterans benefits administration. Well his second. Command is a lady by the name of margarita devlin and she is an absolute well of knowledge. Not just from the. Va solid start program. But about so much more as well hello. My name is aaron perkins. I'm a. Us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Father to two amazing kiddos on the author of resolve a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through the journey of rediscovering purpose. Meaning and passion in your life after you've left the military and if you hadn't guessed on the host of this podcast and when we come back my special guest will be here so sit back. Relax and enjoy my conversation with margarita. Devlin who am i. Why am i still here. How can i uncover who. I was meant to be during my own transition from the. Us army the wounds of war especially those not visible continued to plague my through the pain of job loss of ptsd diagnosis at crippling anxiety by finally discovered the reason. I'm here on the earth. And i knew i couldn't keep it to myself so i wrote a book. Simply titled result. Resolved is a book that has one apologetically faith-based a step by step guide designed for maximum effectiveness in the context of a small group of other veterans resolve provides veterans everywhere with the tool to help you step into your new life a life full hope purpose and vision for the future to pick up your copy of resolve head over to courage to fight again dot com. That's courage to fight again dot com. Well i am here with margarita. Devlin and i just want to take a minute to thank you margarita for being here on the show. This is going to be so so great. I'm super excited about it. But i want to take a minute just to kind of introduce you. And i don't want to steal your thunder because i'm going to give you a chance to introduce yourself as well but margarita devlin. She is the principal secretary for benefits in the department of veterans affairs. She's held that position since may of two thousand eighteen. Now that title in itself obviously a mouthful right. But i will let you. Margarita explained what your role is and all of that and kind of dive into a little bit more for listeners. Basically she second in command at veterans benefits administration so veterans benefits administration. Va that's your va. Va home loan disability compensation of oak rehab life insurance transition assistance and speaking of transition assistance marguerita has a lot of different advancements in military to civilian transition and also suicide prevention to include. What we're talking about today and that is the. Va solid start program so margarita. It is so good to have you. I just want you to want you to take a few minutes and introduce yourself but is so great to have you here. Welcome to we served now. What inky so much. It's really my pleasure to be here. Thank you for inviting me to be on this podcast And i guess what. I areas like to tell people as i've been in the va for twenty five years It's my passion to serve veterans in in various different roles throughout my career. i'm also mom of inactivity serving marine And also the mom of a college student Dad was a navy veteran brother served in the army so Military family close very close to my heart this mission so really happy to be here and talk about the solid start program haas of also weived definitely excited to have you and again on this show. We do our best to answer the questions that veterans and their family members are already asking and one of those questions is what is the. Va solid start programming. And that's question. Maybe we can just lead off with that. What is the. Va solid start program. Absolutely i'm happy to just dive right into that. so solid. The solid start program is really part of the military to civilian transition journey. That really looks at the fact. That transition does not end when you get the d. to fourteen at the end of your military service in fact those of you who have served you know this right. That's really when everything starts to actually happen and no amount of preparation With the military can really prepare you for what what your situation is gonna be like after we heard this from veterans so this program really seeks to connect with veterans in that first year after separation starting at about three months and then we follow up beginning six months in a year and it really is an opportunity for us to start out with. How is it going for you. How's your transition going. How're you doing what's going on in your life. What are you worrying about. And really letting the veteran drive the conversation about what he or she needs the moment how it's going and then our agents are very well trained to pick up on those cues from that conversation and provide that veteran with specific resources in guidance on how to continue their transition in the most successful manner. Possible that is that is huge. I remember. I remember when i got out at the end of two thousand fourteen. It was a kind of a drinking from the fire hose. Except i didn't even know what i was supposed to be drinking. You know it's like hey here's a bunch of benefits you might be eligible for good luck and so it's funny so we started this podcast in the summer of two thousand eighteen and it wasn't until i started this podcast and started doing some research that i learned about more benefits. I could've taken advantage of when i first got out. You know four years prior and so the fact that this this solid start program is tackling that specific issue. I think is great. So what what. Problems specifically is the program trying to solve will it is really a suicide prevention initiative and it came from the fact that we heard from veterans. That sort of felt like all the services and support sorta stopped When they separated from the military and because it was like drinking from a fire hose. They really didn't know where to go to do And who to connect to and it was really difficult for. Va to connect with veterans who were not engaging with our with our systems already so we entered into this agreement with department of defense and homeland. Security is coastguard is under homeland security to get data feet of all the military members when they were separating so that we can start those phone calls so that we can call everybody and by the way we do call everybody that we have information for that includes regardless of character discharge We will call these veterans and we will make sure that they get connected to services and resources that are that are specific to their needs so again suicide prevention. We recognize that. There is a a real. There's a reality about transition stress Which is very different than what you might think about with clinical rate with post traumatic stress disorder. Which is a clinical diagnoses Comes with its own required treatment in the mental health arena. But this is just It's stress around. All the life changes that happened with transition. And what you said you know sometimes they. You're hearing so much about so many benefits while you're in the process of separating that when you get out you might not realize that you didn't take advantage of all of them right right. That is so true. That is so true. So so the the tap program transition assistance program or the army's version i think is a cap or something. It is this part of that is essential that the tap program still exist. How does it factor into all that. They're they're connected. They're two separate things but connectors so the transition. Assistance program does still exist Dod really owns and operates. Don on any of the military services of course puts their own branding on their part of the program via has an entire day where we come in and we teach about. Va benefits was really great. We were able to get it to a full day. Always didn't always look like that but even in that full day where we teach it's really It's a classroom experience right so you're Before covid you were in a room with twenty twenty five other service members and as much as we try to make it engaging and make sure that the servicemember can tie all the benefits to their own personal situation using interactive workbook. All of those things. It still was a classroom experience. A not individual not one on one We do still have benefit visor. Available for one on one support with and they. They advertise that during the class. Now when we went into the code environment we go to virtual So we we are still pretty much in the virtual environment. We've we've started working on getting a little bit more in person presence with tap classes but of course as you can imagine Safety is the number one concern And so we think about this way. Transition assistance program is about teaching. You what you might need to know and getting you prepared in the right mindset for transition. Solid start is like okay. Now we're gonna talk to you after this happened after you got out of the military to see. How are you doing ended. All that stuff makes sense. What questions do you still have. And it's one on one so rather than having to listen to what everybody has to listen to if you already have a job and that's not your concern or you're already in college and using your education benefits that's not your concern but maybe you need to get into a medical appointment. You don't know how to navigate. That will work with you on justice. If that's what you need is maybe you have issues with your children. You need some some other resources. We have access to information about state department of veterans affairs benefits that can sometimes filling gaps were. Va can't Provide a service to really is personalized the comments we hear from veterans. I know you've been seeking feedback from veterans. As well is that they're surprised that va's calling and they're so thankful for it because they were maybe not sure who to call her how to ask about a particular benefit so it's been really interesting seeing the positive reaction from our veteran community. Absolutely and you know. I think that you know this is my opinion. You based on my own experience and the experience of know friends and other veterans who gone through the transition systems program. There are getting ready to get that to you to fourteen right. So all of those briefings. I shouldn't say all but a lot of those briefings are at least in the transitioning servicemembers. Mind it's it's a check the block it's like all right. Let me just get through this thing. So i can go home. Take off this uniform for the final time and get on with my life so the fact that you're contacting them throughout that first year i think they're going to be a whole lot more receptive to hearing. What the benefits are. Because it's not like you're not keeping them from you know from going home you know. You're not you're not saying. Hey you have to be here. This is your place of duty right now. So you mentioned covid nineteen and a lot of things have gone. virtual has there been any other impacts to the program. I know the program still pretty new but have there been any other impacts of the program as a result of the pandemic like are you behind or ahead or anything like that. A solid start actually was in a great position to react effectively to the covid nineteen situation. All of our agents were telework ready and all of our equipment works from telework standpoint. So they haven't skipped a beat they are not behind. They are on target When we first created the program we weren't sure what kind of response we were gonna get so when we created the program We we have to have a performance measure right so we said well. How many people do we really going to answer. The phone won't va calls. You know think about yourself right if your cell phone rings and you don't recognize the number what's the chance you're gonna answer it. Probably not your let it. Go to voicemail right. And if that person's important deli new message so we kinda thought we might get that sort of a reaction so we kinda started. Set the bar low. We said fifteen percent our goal was fifteen one. Five fifteen percent of veterans we reached out to we would be able to actually engage with. They would answer the phone and engage with our with our representatives. It's been just phenomenal. The actual result actually have your with me the december twenty twenty report since we began the program. We have reached over. Eighty seven thousand veterans and the fiscal year. Twenty twenty today fifty seven point. Five percent have responded and engaged. Yeah i know it's it's been just an incredible Response and we also prioritize veterans. Who we know from the information from dod if a veteran had mental health appointment In that last year of service before they left the military prioritize them and we also know that for that population. We need to make sure we get them connected into. Va healthcare and with that sub population. The percents even higher seventy three point. Six percent have responded to our agents and our end have engaged with them on the phone. Wow that is really really great. How surprised were you at the at the numbers when he finally saw them. In the beginning. I was very surprised. And then you know we had a town hall with are Representatives the ones who are actually making the call and it was really interesting. Many of them are veterans themselves. Some of them are you were military spouses. And some of them even used to work in the tap program and and they're so passionate about their work and they're always submitting new ideas about how to improve the program here in the anecdotes That they shared with me about what some of these veterans were telling them and how grateful they were for this phone call. One thing we do is we did put it on the caller. Id so in most with most cellular services You you'll it'll save veterans affairs on your phone so you kind of notes the. Va calling so kind of helps to increase the the response rate but yeah. It's it's been an amazing response for veteran for so happy that this program is reaching them in making impact. Yeah definitely that's great. That's great so. Va solid start. It's for those who are basically brand new to the civilian world right so for those of us like myself and a lot of our listeners who are not newly separated what resources are available for us for helping us understand available that that we can take advantage of so a couple things you're right. Solid start is for those that are recently separated so for veterans of any era. Were here for you as well. And you know i always. I'm always very sensitive to that that you know if you Or vietnam era veteran. We care about you. We want you to call us if you if you never got connected to your benefits. Please call us and we will walk you through. There's a main toll free number which is one eight hundred eight two seven one thousand and that is our main call centre. Those agents are trained across the entire portfolio benefits as well and they will help you identify. What eligibilities you might have In the benefit side and they can even connect you to healthcare If you if you haven't signed up for your healthcare so they can. They can kind of connect you regardless of when you got out of the military And if you are a veteran that just got out in the last year and you haven't gotten your solid start call. I say the information we get from dod his last information we had about the servicemember. Sometimes people change their phone number They changed their email address. We do try and reach out by email First before we make that first phone call so call us. And if you're in that last in the first year after separation just asked to be transferred to the solid start program very cool very cool and you just taught me something with this eight hundred numbers at eight hundred eighty two seven one thousand right cracked. Okay so i could you know after we finish this conversation i could off here. I could call that number and find out the benefits that i'm eligible for. Maybe i'm not taking advantage of. Yes and really. What what they're gonna do is they're going to ask you some questions. What type of benefit are you thinking about. you know. and because we haven't education call center so if you said hey. I'm really wondering if i'm if i'm eligible for the gi bill. They'll transferred to gi bill experts. Right if you say well. i'm really kind of thinking. What kind of employment types of benefits or what about disability benefits So you know they'll help you with those benefits. It's a little bit different than solid. Start in that There are more got react to what you're needing in the moment whereas are solid start agents are trained to sort of prompt And get information out of the veteran to help navigate the whole suite of benefits they might be entitled to and i also wanna say your state department of veterans affairs. They have offices in in different states. We have regional offices. One day hopefully will be able to meet in person again. But in addition there's the veterans service organizations in. They're out there to help. There's a lot of resources but yes feel free to call us. Anybody listening to podcasts. Give us a call one. Eight hundred eighty two seven one thousand and we'll try and get you connected to your benefits above love it and so speaking of benefits and this is it's kind of a curiosity question. I guess what is the most overlooked benefit that veterans typically. Don't take advantage. There's a couple and we actually make it a point to focus on these in the beginning They're time sensitive so one thing for example is life insurance benefits. There is a time limit on when you can convert your service group. Life insurance to veteran group life insurance. And if you don't do in that timeline you kind of miss the opportunity It's about a year and a half out from from when you leave the military so We tell them always about life insurance and that's always kind of a tricky thing right. Nobody ever wants to think about end of life. Especially you know you. A young twenty five year old veteran and twenty six year old. And they're thinking while life insurance okay. You know if they're single and they don't have a a spouse children they might not be thinking about it so we want to make sure they understand the value of having that life insurance policy and so that they make an informed decision potentially to take advantage of it another one is dental care the eligibility for dental care which is time limited in a lot of veterans miss out on that because they don't fully understand it so there's a couple of the ones that we know are are critical sensitive And honestly we've heard some some of our veterans who say they didn't file for disability benefits. Because they didn't feel like they should take that benefit away from another veteran so we do spend some time explaining that they don't take benefit from another veteran. It's a it's a mandatory benefit. Were any veteran. Who's eligible for the benefit and it also opens up the door for healthcare. And you know if you're young and strong now but but you know that you had injuries orthopedic injuries for example. But you're okay and you can kind of deal with the pain right now. Well one day you're going to need healthcare it might worsen You know this is. This is not a handout. It is an investment in that veteran. Making sure that they can stay strong and half the care that they need to to For the rest of their life if needed sure sure so that is some really really great information. But it's not every day that i get to to the principal. Deputy undersecretary for benefits at the veterans benefits administration or being translated. Second command right. So i have a couple of questions that they're they're along the lines of transition but not solid start specific right sure all right so one thing that i'm incredibly passionate about is helping veterans rediscovery since of purpose and meaning after the military and so finding that sense of purpose in that sense of meaning after military service is. It's really the single most challenging part of a chat challenging part of the transition and so one question. I wanted to ask you is how does the. Va help with this aspect of post military life. It's interesting that you bring that up because our research also validates that is one of the biggest challenges. In fact we did. We just started last year. A post-separation study of veterans. Who went through the top programme while they were in uniform to kind of see the retrospective look right. Because it's one thing we can really high marks in the classroom right there. The ninety six percent are highly satisfied with our tap class. But what we wanna do is wait to your veteran in the naski. Look back on and say okay now. How well prepared did you feel you were and we also bounce that against data to see are they employed you know are they using our benefits and we ask them for information about how they're doing so in that study we found the open comments that we got from veterans were very much around that loss of sense of camaraderie. That loss of sort of feeling that you're part of a community unit cohesion that you had the military you don't have that in communities today And just that that loss of sense of purpose and mission so we're just now starting to lean in to explore how the can help with that. We can't solve the problem ourselves right because we're not going to be that sense of community for them but we can connect them and we've been engaging with a lot of organizations nonprofits and via so organizations that provide that connectivity that sense of community in that sense of mission And we're starting those conversations to say. How do we infuse that into the solid. Start program so that we can start connecting veterans in a different way to give them that sense of community. they're looking for. It's really going to involve have to involve a partnership model via. Can't do this alone. Sure sure on love the fact that that the va is realizing this and is like you said leaning into that so now this is a this next question for you is potentially a touchy question. But i don't need to tell you that. A lot of veterans are like. I don't like the va about experience for those veterans who have had that experience or they're just like man. I've heard so many bad things. I don't even wanna try it you know. It's probably not worth the hassle. What what would you say to them if they were if they were asking like. Okay what should i do. Should i do anything. What would you say to them right now. A couple of things first of all. I wanna say avenues. Cells and good news typically unfortunately does not get the same kind of traction. There are so many good news stories out there. And if you look for them you'll see them. I would say comback triumphs again. It's not the same. va that. It was a few years ago. We have come such a long way in the healthcare system with the hospitals in the end the outpatient clinics in our regional offices are outreach is is so much different and we understand better how to improve the experience for our veterans. So i would say it's been a couple of years maybe had a bad experience comeback to us get another chance and if your experience is not absolutely stellar fabulous edit. It doesn't make you turn around your opinion of va. Reach out to us. And i would say in the healthcare system. We have Advocates in every medical center. Go talk to the patient advocate. Tell them about your experience. Let us change something. If there's something specific that's not quite right. Sitting in our via regional office asked to speak to the leadership team. We have lead dan so hard on getting feedback from veterans and making changes across the entire enterprise. It's it's just not the same. Please try again in comeback. That's what i would say. Sure sure so of just just anecdotally right so my family. And i we live in alabama and so my closest a regional center is in birmingham. And so you know i. I've been there a lot over the past few years. And when i compare the service and the facilities and everything like that to a to a more local hospital more local medical facility. It is night and day difference. I mean bring. Va clinic is just top of the line. So it it is really an and again. I know everyone is different but it even from. When i used to go to the va we lived in texas to go into the va. Here it is. There's so many positive changes that have been made in at so honestly i'm really really happy with with the facilities and the care receive and everything like that so glad to hear that. Yeah absolutely absolutely so what's a big takeaway here right. So what does something. All veterans and newly separated veterans or. Otherwise what should they really remember from our conversation. Today i would say remember that. Va is here for you We probably have a benefit or a service that you might not have been aware of And we wanna be there. We want to be partners in your military civilian transition. We want to be partners in your life and help you with any issues that you might have. We're not the answer for everything But we also have connections with community resources and just reach out to us if if you need anything don't try and go it alone and again if if you had a bad experience in the past comeback to us i promise you it should be a much better experience now and like i said if there's anything you encounter that that you have an issue with let us know we're here to be part of it. I mean my personal story. My brother who is an army veteran wouldn't go to the. Va for the longest time. I finally got him to go and he's been so thrilled he was. He calls me up and he's like says they're offering me services that i didn't even ask for. They're they're doing this. They're doing that. And i said yes. That's what we call wraparound services when you come into a va. We are not just looking at the problem that you presented with. We're gonna ask you how else we can help you. And he's been so impressed with that. He wishes he would start in the. Va system a long time ago. It really is We've really made some great advances. So please come see as awesome awesome so here on the show. We like to give our listeners. Some practical next step. So when this podcast finishes playing what should they. Do you know the context of our conversation today. What should they do because today's question is. Hey what's the. Va solid start program. And obviously you've answered that more than we could ever imagine and in so having you on the show has been just absolutely outstanding but what should their next steps be right after listening to this podcast. I would say if you're curious about the benefits and services we offer You might try to going to our website. Www dot va dot gov easy to remember And when you go to. Va dot gov. You'll see sort of things grouped into logical sort of life domain issue. So you'll be able to kind of navigating see. Wow you know what is what does the. Va half for me. And then you can actually apply for many of our programs online. Some of them Were still working on getting online. But you get the application online so that would be one thing and then if you just don't wanna talk to somebody some full more comfortable calling on the phone and talking to somebody call that number i gave earlier one eight hundred eight two seven. One thousand You know we're here for you. Take that step. Check us out If you're already enrolled in one of our programs you know good on you but there might be something else that he don't know about so check us out. Sure well margarita.

"A check out the toy line pick up the comics watch the show, and again they got clip nail pitchers here from. The commercials or the. First couple cartoons I got the picture here of. Africa giant guy that Duke had to fight. This is little rice if you haven't read this I. Command arena just racial background on Gi Joe and our cartoon. Of Toys and all that good stuff and that brings us to the last page at least what I'm looking at here is the memo from hawked all units. It's you read the good stuff on the page pre idea what bit up to the last couple of years so true then they lost journal flag. They lost Quinn. Joe's there expect forum. There are good times at last a good feeling you get when you know the people around you're the best. Now moved into the new pit retire than ever, and this is just the beginning. I tell you got coming they got more veterans coming more members New Year. I'd say troops the same in the world. There's all law that says we can't have fun doing it signed by our in looks like green lantern each gs join us over the chat He says late, the ad excuse apparently the long box Adam trapped reminded next time we're doing this on video because I might have picked my nose earlier did something weird so That'd be great. About that. Either box on Gi Joe Yearbook Number One. Yeah. The the section with the television there's an image and I don't remember what episode it was from says Kennedy Joe's snatched the dock back. One of the JOE's gives it a wack with the aid of Jet Pack and a Cobra is writing a Wurley Nice. Looking kind of sports car with fins on it and a Cobra symbol is that from an episode I don't remember I, think it's from the animated cartoon for the First Issue Of Gi Joe. Release that vehicle for Cobra that thing is awesome that is awesome and the jet pack looks different to it almost looks like a flash Gordon kind of yeah. Couple of tanks, gasoline strapped some guys back made his launched them. The air identified looks like most of the screengrabs are from commercials than I really from it's only towards the last little bit that you get some ones that are drawn from the the first mini series. But actually overall I, think I think the the little talking about the animation, the cartoon how it all came about his actually probably the most interesting part of this whole yearbook because I think it's easy to lose sight of nowadays with the Internet and find out anything about how any thinking together a. Movie or TV wise. But back, then you didn't really know any of the behind the scenes stuff. So it it of makes this yearbook more of a Curio than just a straight up annual because it kind of. Peels back the curtain a little bit of the of the of the of the TV series and the mechanics of making it and You know I think that's something that makes this sort of very much of its time. You know I couldn't see them doing anything like this for contemporary comic or cartoon now, and I don't even know I'm so I even know if there was anything like the yearbook prior to this with any of the other. Uh, any of the other comics marvel DC whether they are based on marvel DC properties or if it was based on some licensing, think as far as a toy line being licensed. Out to a comic book, I think Geagea was the first case where they had really taken off and really taken off. Well, I know marvel to the microdots back in the seventies, but it didn't have the huge impact. The JOE did. So again, that's another question will have to ask Larry next time other than the like she's a star wars at the moon and that the Tony's yeah. Off. Movie See I think not mistake everything I've heard Gi joe was the first toy line that produce the TV show in the comic and everything became so immensely popular. Was Hbo. I was looking through scans of trying to find more pit scans and pictures. Of other headquarters and stuff, and there's one other Cobra island layout and they talk about all the different Main Cobra villains in what they do and what I found. Funny. Was Czar Tan and family and the CROCK master they were head of security for Cobra Island. came out around the time of the Cobra Island war. Yeah. Seven. Never that. Do Remember that so You. Get caught came out yet he was of the security team and the drops. The hatred for them that some people do. I don't know if I would damage security. She had own and Elizabeth will as we've seen. What do you guys, GonNa thoughts on on this issue. You know I when I first got this I didn't know really what to expect, and so I was expecting or excited to see the next one and I think as we went on the yearbook Skyla with better because we got some original stories, which I thought were great and some more kind of file card type stuff. But overall I thought this was a good start to it. I. See why they kind of went the way they did with it I just wish to cut the cover was it was a little more vibrant. And A little more love to the back cover's well. But overall a definitely worthy addition to every Gi Joe Comic Collection Brad, do you have any other thoughts? Yeah. I think overall and I touched on this a little bit earlier but overall reading the yearbook reading through it. was a real trip because I think more. So than the reread of the individual issues this when really feels like an artifact of its time, it feels very specific to nine, hundred, eighty, four, nine, hundred, ninety five, and it's almost like this perfect little document of how much a cultural force Joe had become by that point. Crossover from just being a toy and comic and cartoon into this real cultural kind of phenomenon and I think it all. Boils down to it's a great sales tool for the comic and getting those kids who may have been fans of the cartoon, the Toy Line into reading the comic for the first time, and I think it's certainly succeeded because after this point Gi Joe really kind of exploded both the both toy in the comic line, and then with the with the back the cartoon going week. Going daily actually in the following fall it. Don't think, gi. Joe Ever was as popular as was over the next couple of years a green lantern head comment I saw the comment saying, oh so that's how the Joe's got onto the island so easy. Green Lantern Hd said that. So yeah, that explains it. You know they're maybe they able to somehow get past CROC master in those jed nuts. By the way I just WanNa make an announcement here Aaron and Brad. While we were doing this podcast here, I actually went onto vistaprint and I printed up some extra copies clothing one for myself of the pit. Gi. Joe Command Center poster and because you guys were honest podcast I'm going to send one to each of both of you..

"To protect the rest of Fort. Wadsworth. They were spotted by core spy satellites not impossible Quinn escaped the armor only shot in the back by Venom. Joe's one. We pay a high-pressure victory run in the Barents escaped. The pay was partially destroyed in general flag was killed in action that you kind of funeral. He deserved when's Casque was quoted in the Arctic And flag was going military burial in Arlington National Cemetery Meanwhile. Cobra busy recruiting new allies Brad's favourite the dread Knox Marauders from Australia with an insane hunger for destruction ends arts ham, the deadliest nationals guys who ever lived. So the struggle, between Gi, Joe and Cobra goes on earth itself as the prize. So this the synopsis they, have here ends Brownish thirty. Four, it actually came out. So get some thoughts on there for our with the Cincinnati with Brad favorite jerk. Read here. On the recap. I thought I and. I think looking at it now and even back then I think as a recap goes, it's a pretty solid one and give it gets you up to speed where you could pretty much pick up a GI. Joe Number thirty three at the same time you picked this thing up in and can be able to join the story midstream and Beulah keep up with what's going on what you tried to track down the other issues, which is what I was doing at that time. Particularly into nine, hundred, eighty, five, I was buying the new wishes that came out and any opportunity I had to try and track down some of the back issues to fill in the story I knew what what was going on interesting thing about this you'd look at even the first page of the recap it's got panel from issue number six and another one from issue number eleven, and you kind of realize looking at the they started jumped over the first ten issues they pop back a bit to talk a little bit about the issue ten nice little town like ours Springfield one but there's a lot of stuff that happened. In this first ten issues but you kind of realize you know as as far as the story of they're pushing in its recap, which is the Cobra versus Gi Joe Aspect that you know it's it's really about building that relationship in that conflict. So there's no real talking about the stuff that happened in issues two three or four Cobra made a brief appearance in five, an initial beginning six and seven with the October guard who don't get any mention here but that's that's another. That's another story for another another yearbook the interesting thing was I think it does a very good job of hitting the main beats. It hits the big moments that has everything from. Quinn in Doctor Venom and. The baroness and general flag and characters you know in in the case of the the. The baroness notwithstanding the character killed. In the story but before we get to the present day or the then present day as we know who these people were and what role they played. So I think it keeps a gives you enough information to know what the back story was away it happened before. But at least if blanks wanted to go back and track down these issues and and start reading through everything spoiled for you that there's enough mystery of what happened in those proceedings. Thirty odd issues that you can buy those still get a good entertaining story without having too much given away and Kevin Rights or your thoughts on on this recapping done. This is what's known as. The Comic Book version of TV shows clip show. As Brad. Said earlier though this is great for people that are getting into because you'd say, just go get a yearbook number one L. catch up with most of the important stories. Yes they skip over stuff. Obviously. But what I like about the the it's Kinda, the middle middle of this here where like wait a minute you kinda know who the Joe Czar but let's let's remind you who the cobras are and there's the scene where in if I remember correctly, this was I don't think this was an actual comic book, but there was maybe a table or conference room that. Had all the main cobres in it, and then it says it says the Cobra Commander and then you show him thinking thank you major blood I'm touched. He's a despicable bootlegger everything that district isn't and that's why he must destroy destroy for me and it goes detro- and Dextra says something that goes major blood says destroy his rival than major blood, the commanders henchmen. Then, it goes over to star face the mysterious courier and he says some stuff and then the baroness and then venom new the score Benham saying too many contradictory plots in. How can I use them to add my vantage? Thought that was kind of cool to kind of remind you who the bad guys were so. So much attention mostly Joe's here because it is called Gi Joe by you know overall I. Think it was a great way to get people into the comic caught up with the story this this far in the cover some really cool famous scenes in here and I love the fact that Quinn is in there and they show Quinn's death is well, and that run from issue eleven or twelve through nineteen with Sierra Gordo and all that stuff you know and I. Think when they were deciding how to do this yearbook I think they went about it right? Obviously we didn't get an original story that's my only major complaint about this but still I think it was great to Catch people up was going on because they might have realized that either it was print run or whatever that it was kind of tough to get some of these other issues and especially issue number two. So yeah, overall I thought it was good. Seeing with the cobras, roundtable having their their victory either planning and all that. But meanwhile, yeah, they're all printing on how to backstab each other and how to take. Out Basically as a great scene. I. I read I read this issue I think really read these issues in the digest form, but it was good seeing this that's. A good way to catch people out. There were just joining the the comic on what's happened previously without having to track down thirty issues omic this got it. Wrapped it all up for you. I'm a little surprised. They didn't give a little more service two billion here seen alley at released. We I showed up seeing how this is right in the midst of the whole billing she her. Out Related and all that. But but yeah, this is a great way I think to to capture a teach of comic and. Dark the dread knocks outside the gate. Fort Wadsworth. Trade but y airforce base about ready to break in mess things up. The next segment in the. We. EAT KITS GI Joe Command Center, and this is a breakdown of the pair which I believe was in the first issue say shows y'all all the layers of one. Of the picks and they break down the on each level of the emergency exit they show. Their bottom they have a boring machine. It looks like coming to generate generator down there So Kevin, what are your thoughts on the classified file of up? Pardon me I'm actually opening up my. Box, gi. Joe Comics and looking at the original first issue again signed by. Larry. And? I wanted to look at this version of the pit that's in the. Yearbook as opposed to the one in the issue number one because I was doing a little Google Google food and trying to find some hi Rez Scans of the pit and I'm wondering like why why haven't we gotten like a poster released of the pit of of this picture because it's so iconic people love this thing and I found some scans and I found one that has a page number twenty, nine on it and I'm. Trying to figure out if that's from something else because early says twenty nine at the bottom. So I, don't know if that twenty nine was put on the scan itself and someone was like kind of keeping track because I had to. You know really define my search to find this and I found this page had all of these maps and cut away. He's like the fantastic four building all these other ones and that's where I found. This the original issue number one, and of course, the yearbook and does not have the page number on it and the yearbook doesn't have any page numbers on it. So I was kind of curious to find out if that was something that came from another printing maybe with that said, it would be nice if this originally was in the middle of the comic book where the Staples Go so if you wanted to destroy your original. Issue.

"So again for a ten year old or an eleven year old in Nineteen eighty-four, this would have been like you know the Holy Grail of of Gi Joe Comic related stuff. That that's a very nice back covered fact, he would agree with you that it does. Then the front cover Kevin what are your thoughts on the back cover of? Yes. I think that we should also great this separately because I agree that this is actually better than the front cover it still guy kind of that washed out look to it. So I guess that's maybe a design that they were one four here but you know, I think overall the reason why we're such fans Cobra is because honestly most of them looked better than the JOE's, let's put it that way they have the better uniforms. They do. They do the meaner stop you know and I mean these these characters just looked fantastic especially. The Front Five Guy here was Storm Shadow Cobra commander Baroness detro- in. Major blood with firefly and What's his name? What's his name versus name? Came Garden. And we get the tease of the Ford vehicles as well which is great. So yeah I really like this and it's You. Know If. I almost forgotten about if we weren't talking about it without turning it over because normally we don't get a back cover we get a big ad, right so let's go get some numbers on this one. Let's go heads or with Jerry two point. Oh, on a statement one to five I'd give it a four before. I think it stronger the than the front cover may not be classic but I feel I feel like with the yearbook you kind of have to grade them a little bit differently particularly the first one because it. Is a comic, but it's not really in a completely original one but there's enough interesting stuff in it that I think makes it very much of its time. But I think if you're a fan of GI JOE in that era that eighty, three, eighty, four period that you know I think it's sort of represents the line certainly of the toys but the character isn't just a comic sort of added Zenith like it seemed like a nine, hundred, eighty four was the year that Joe Really. Kinda. Came together and kind of clicked. In a way that it hadn't previously it was gaining fans and it was gaining interest but I don't think we saw. Really becoming more of a cultural phenomenon that's stood the test of time for the last thirty, five years until eighty four until this issue, which comes out at the tail end of the year. So it's almost like a culmination of everything the GI Joe has been after this point and Kevin. How many? Grape sodas would you give this one? I give it a four and I'M GONNA have to agree with both you guys I think this is a four four point five. Gets credit for me because it has the hooded Cobra commander on it as always. That's my favorite not so. If. It wasn't a GI. Joe Comic. Cover. But see now it's Gigo. We had the jobs in the front but yeah, this this was a much better of the two. Well, let's go inside this. You itself says, we bought the first in. This is a reprint of operation lady do me. From the first issue I in my thoughts about that a couple of years ago we first the first episode, but you German were with us. So briefly, Joe's are fighting to save this woman Dr Burkhardt and the jobs had to rescue from the Baroness and Cobra one thing I will point out here. We talk about way back. Then when they're looking to the GI joes, this isn't really numbered so you would atomic the GI. joes. Yes and out there's one on there called a called shooter. That we never see. Than Pitcher here but does go off and they say lady, Burkhart, who will spoilers show backup later on in the series some thoughts on this let's go in start with the raiders hurt himself Kevin I'm actually excited about this because I don't think I was a guest on I think my first time I was a guest was number five one with the tank I think that was it and that was a while ago. So I I'm actually excited about talking about this. So I always thought this would have made a great gi Joe movie with the cartoons. I would have been great tie-in to even because there's a lot of people that were watching the cartoon not reading the comic and vice versa. Then there was a bunch of us that were doing both but I thought it would have been a great time because this would have been a great series and I would love it. If they did reference shooter like it would have been great if he was like one of the the green shirts on Cobra island but then he actually got killed or something happened that just I wish they would have made reference to shoot or somehow that way. or at least in this comic. But shooter was the editor if I remember correctly and that's why there's reference to when when they refer to like you know, hey, Jim, this was an episode Asterix. This isn't last issue and they put these little notes to the editor there which I always thought was kind of funny because I never never seen that before obviously. I always thought it would be really cool If we actually did get a L L C, t landing craft type of vehicle, it probably would have been quite large, but I would like I would like to see that more action that would have been really cool and I love how we get both the tank in the Ram. Really cool like a like shots of them assaulting. Cobra island especially with the the Mo- bat like going over the barricade and then you got I love the fact you got rock and roll just like you know going over a A ditch with his ram I always thought that was just really really cool and also I wanted to see more of this later on in comics. But I think we only got it in this one but correct me if I'm wrong that. starlet utilizing those throwing stars on her gloves or four arms you know and she throws one hits Cobra commander. The gun out of his hand I always thought that was cool and I was fascinated by the cameras that got smuggled in by the Baroness and the Cobra troopers and that they were actually guns in our thought they looked really cool. I just thought it was a great story. It was a great way to showcase the JOE's. and. See them in action. It was a great first issue showing that there this elite you know unit. And you know how they work together and but I just I wish we would have gotten a little bit more of some of the other things like shooter and stuff like that later on but overhaul great issue I really enjoyed it and it still a good good standalone story I think and I would love for it to be revisited sometime..

Come up you never know. Also, joining us is Brad Abraham. Jerry two point Oh mommy and daddy are. Better. On. Thanks again for having me. Thanks again. Thanks again for having me. Feel the guest who never laughed. I. Joe With you and you know when I can't really on the real. Yeah the real jared drops the ball they bring me in. Our cleanup shared if you will. The cleanup. Actually got their livestream today. I forgot about that. So that's why pat and jared's not with us. That plus restrain yards yards. Entirely. As I mentioned, we're here to talk about the work number one before getting actual comic. Let's go talk about the history of whatever Brad. We're talking before the show this comic here the yearbook. Did you I? This is fresh off the? Stan. I did I don't know if it was exactly fresh off the stand I remember a guy in my class bringing it to school. This is around November into December of one thousand, nine, hundred four. Why. So vividly remember it and but I I do remember. December. Nineteen eighty four very very clearly because it was probably one of the greatest months ever for gi Joe Because you had the yearbook which Kinda snuck up out of nowhere you had GI JOE number thirty three, and the third thing is you had Christmas that month and this is Christmas nineteen eighty-four. So. If, YOU'RE A boy of a age. You probably got a bunch of Gi Joe's stuff under the Tree I. Know I got the Hovercraft, which as we all know, is the greatest, the single greatest vehicle ever created for the Joe Line grand and some of the greatest action figures were released in that year as well. You ripcord is one of my favorites I've mentioned several times but you also had a condo you also had blowtorch. Vehicles goal toys, and on a personal note December. Nineteen ninety four was my first ever trip to a real complex star. All The Times I bought Cox beforehand had just been at the newsstand or the ESPN Iraq of our local convenience store. But this necessitated of a trip to a store where I picked up the yearbook at picked up GI JOE number thirty three and I picked up transformers number four the forth issue of the four issue. Then four issue limited mini series where it ended with shockwave showing blowing everybody away. So I do remember I do remember when I actually bought this. You know like specifically about that month is being probably the peak of my gi Joe Phantom as well. So yeah, it's a, there's a I have a story to history with. This yearbook. In, Kevin, did you buy this wealth of stand or did you read this later? I ain't going to say I got it off the stand at this time I. Think. Okay so Little backstory. Gi Joe was the first comic book that I actually started buying month to month. I knew comic books were I may have gotten a random star wars comic before that but I wasn't really collecting comics into comics I wasn't into superheroes is much more other things. But. Gi. Joe Was the first one that I collected month to month. So with that said, I didn't know what annuals for had. No idea. I'm going to trust that what jared two point Oh said. That this came out around December, because I'm looking at I remember going into the Bookstore Saas comic books. So I think was in drama to here in Santa. Barbara. And I always would go in. This is before comic polls and stuff like that, and I just wanted to see if the next issue is out and I remember seeing the yearbook and I was like Holy, what is this yearbook wh? Why is it? Why is it cost money and? The Guy Behind the counter was kind of laughing. He's like, yeah, that's the annual and I'm like white. What's an annual? He's explains it's kind of a comic book thing where every year they released a double sized issue. With some extra stories and mostly just to put more ads in it he said. And I remember picking it up up and going through and I'm like well, okay. I remember this story how it has the first issue reprinted on there I'm like okay and then there's some other stuff in here and so that's when I realized that. Okay. This is the Joe. Yearbook is their version of the annual and then I understood it later on but it was really cool to have a thicker comic book in your hand of Gi Joe with a really cool cover on it And then it says everything you need to know about America's favorite hero I thought I was getting really good at get some really good stuff out of this and I thought it was pretty yes. Yeah. That was my first impression of remembering it and learning about annuals for the first time. Was I. talked about I didn't get into comics until eighty-seven. So this was back has yet picked up for me. I've founded eventually is back issue and picked it up. Again yeah, it was great reading it but let's go get into that. I don't really have any memories of picking up Sam because I wasn't buying comics this time. So gives him a free Sean. This this is as we talked about Gi Joe, yearbook, number one the cover date was march of nineteen, eighty five but the on sale.

It could be w series action. There's there's a lot of story. Talent is a lot of stuff that you can pull from the comic book and kind of go through. That story would be interesting to see as far as movies go. You know if you're GonNa do a movie that's what I would do. I like the Lego idea.

There's either a couple of character or vehicles on one page or there may be spread out over a couple pages. All its nose comes along the first page here against a forty five.
