Border Crisis Sparks Calls for Change in Immigration Policy
"June twenty first two thousand nineteen jv pritzker signs measure to help protect illegal immigrants in illinois governor jv pritzker in june of two dozen nineteen signed three bills designed to protect illegal immigrants in illinois that would prohibit law enforcement agencies from coordinating with federal immigration authorities. Pritzker sign the keeping illinois families together. Act which prohibits local law enforcement from coordinating with immigration customs enforcement. Now this was two years ago. Why am i mentioning this. Because you have blue states by the way this is one of thirty examples of blue states that have been signing laws that prohibit police officers and local sheriffs in da's from coordinating with federal officials. That's an act of secession. That's an act of nullification saying we don't want any part of this. Federal compact and we as republicans and conservatives sat idly by like. Oh yeah that's bad. Let's keep going to the courts they've been ignoring the courts and ignoring the laws for years. And so then when one point eight million illegals come into the country to change the country permanently by the way what do we do. We beg joe biden for help. So what are the democrats do when things start to trend in a direction. They don't like they take action. The democrats have the willingness to reshape. Destroy the country. Republicans are getting there now. Some people emailed us and they said well. Charlie couldn't joe biden nationalize the national guard. It is very rare to do so usually only done with the consent of the governor and prayer pet presidents have rarely federalized a state or territory guard without the consent of the governor in the wake of hurricane katrina president. George w bush declined to take control of the louisiana's national guard due to the objection of governor kathleen blanco. But this is such an easy thing. First of all joe biden can't nationalize state troopers. Secondly he can't nationalize texas rangers. Thirdly the governor of texas would say i'm sorry what did you design a piece of paper. There's still our national guard. They're not gonna listen to you federalized nationalize i mean federalize. And so what should have been done. And what's still can be done. Is every single. Texas ranger national guard member state trooper that can be allocated should be deployed to the southern border with handcuffs and arrest authority and charter flights.

Everyone loves louisiana especially new orleans for our culture food and spirit. People speak highly of our resilience and strength but as a native. Let me just say that.

I am feeling. Ptsd from my childhood. I will ache if another generation of children has to experience the trauma and neglect that my peers and i experienced in our childhood.

The Department of Health undercounted virus fatalities in nursing homes by 50% of reasons obvious. I had the hide Cuomo's nursing home covert scandal, his executive orders enforced nursing homes to accept covert patients, and many elderly residents subsequently died of the illness. Now he could have sent sick people to the nearly empty makeshift hospitals The Trump administration set up, but he didn't wanna. Cuomo's most vocal critics is Fox News meteorologist Gammas Dean, who lost both of her in laws that covered in New York nursing homes. Janice Dean recently reported she warned to watch her back after criticizing the governor. She says that she was smeared by the governor spokespeople and told that she was part of a death cult for hounding Cuomo.

"Right now, at 18 63 the ounce Little change their West Texas enemy the accrued back below $40 a barrel 39 59 down 21 cents a drop today of 5/10 of 1%. I'm Charlie Pellet. That's a Bloomberg business Flash. Yes, indeed, Charlie. Thank you so much. Jay Lippman is with US co founder and president of Ethic joining us on the phone from New York City. And of course they Our detector of an asset manager is all about creating sustainable investment portfolios. We've been talking a lot about the climate, and it's something certainly near and dear to us as well. Hear it. Bloomberg J. What about the other problems? Big issues that face us and it's something we've talked about with you before. But you know the racial inequalities that are out there in our society. How do you think about that? I'm curious What you're hearing from investors about How they are applying that to thinking about that when they make investments. Of course, and you know, it remains a huge priority for so many of our clients in one of the interesting things you know, in this conversation about climate as always seeing the interconnectivity between issues. Right and you're seeing on the West Coast. Now with these obviously these unprecedented fires, you know, one of the immediate side effects that everyone's talking about is the immediate planet migration that is going to be a fact as people lose their homes. That kind of unprecedented numbers, and one of the natural effect of that is, you know it is the most vulnerable in society that are going to be most disproportion affected by that, If they cannot afford to relocate their lives, they cannot afford to rebuild their lives. And if they are essentially forced into unprecedented turns for themselves on that does affect people of color As a result, So you know, as as our investors think Maura about racial justice investing, I think that the entire climate concession does factor into so many elements. All of it, as well as other factors like criminal justice reform and where the companies are profiting from a systemically unjust and racist criminal justice system on which companies are position to, you know, honestly benefit from that system, as well as Industries like predatory lending that disproportionately per day upon or affect people of color in the country right now. Yeah, And it's interesting. You know, on the climate point in the climate, it exacerbating inequality, point Jay you mentioned earlier in the conversation the hurricane season in the Gulf and you know it was 15 years ago, and I was involved in some of Bloomberg's coverage around it. When Hurricane Katrina obviously came onshore in Mississippi was a little less well covered. But certainly when we saw what Hurricane Katrina and the levees breaking, ultimately did to New Orleans A disproportionate effect it had on Poor black people in the lower ninth Ward and also the economic response to that, I think is so interesting to think about as well in terms of what get what gets rebuilt and what doesn't and who is able to Essentially show any measure of resilience and and I have to think that that's part of the equation, too. Of course, of course, and you know, a very sad part of one of the displacement that is created either from the flooding either from fires is that small business owners, people that are dependent on the community element off for their kind of economic support. Economic You know that's what out as the entire community is pushed out, and, you know, doesn't necessarily have the financial resilience to return to the area, and especially, as he said, not to do so quickly. So when you think about what we're increasingly calling, and we had the the creator of this concept on our show yesterday, Peter out Water, the economist this case shaped recovery. You know, I feel like investors or sort of of of of many minds here that it is maybe easy as it were to sort of investing in that upward part. Of the K in Tech and other companies on DH and maybe ignore some of the opportunity or maybe ignore some of the implications of the other part of the K with this widening gap. How do you continue to sort of make sure that you and on behalf of your client sort of making the right sort of investments when some cos they're doing quite well about all this? I think one of the considerations we have to make it. You know, there are obviously those larger companies that are going to benefit from the destruction of the market and from consolidation and will continue to grow and accelerated rate. For a coded and through the rebound, But you also gotta look att the companies that are kind of systemically position to benefit from, you know, honestly extracting from the communities in the country that is the most vulnerable. So as we look at industries like predatory lending that benefit most when people are financially destitute. And honestly in desperate need of financial support. That's when they are strongest right because they're able to position themselves as a provider off financial services that does exploit its clients. Right, And there's industries like that that are going to make the situation on the dramatic work for those people. That will not be part of the economic uplift, especially if they are not after owners if they know holders in some of those companies that are going to see the largest expansion in their share price. Because they're not, you know, honestly participating in the kind of economic up because they don't have invested for this. So you will see that disparity grow even further from that corporate activity of the fact that you know, a lot of people in the community don't actually have ownership of activities that will grow from the benefits of a quick question. Just got about a minute left here. How does you How do your you know Algorithms, you know? They see Big Wall Street banks. Middle of this It's a great question. I think that you know, it really depends on how you actually judged the various practices. And I think that you know, looking at things like carbon risk carbon.

"Robert Kennedy junior actually came out and said hurricane Katrina was caused by George W. bush he closed this door because he didn't do what Robert Kennedy junior thought he should have done we got a lot of hideous and they're going to do whatever they have to do to make whatever point they're gonna make it I've always told you this I don't care how dumb your opinion is I don't care how stupid the statement you just made it you will find an audience for it it's just a matter of how big the constituency will be to idiocy and there's plenty of it when it when it comes to this hurricanes happen welcome to reality Ted rights do you think we're in for a strong hurricane season this year yes I do but what makes sense considering how twenty twenty is gone so far I'm surprised you didn't put a global warming question in there no for held back and good for so all right just to give you some facts on this if anybody's worried about a crystal is currently a hundred five miles west of the Mexican city of we butcher in it but I might be nailing it at the same time can be checked plus I think that's right and will move north across the Gulf this week yeah that's what it Louisiana probably this weekend a tough sell yeah but is it gonna get stronger on the way probably I'll probably end up being us at least a minimal hurricane by the time I guess Louisiana yeah it's you know usually it's until later in the hurricane yeah that's right we we had a storming of bursa last week I know it did not sound like a big fat storm you bad yeah it spun up and moved on to the North Carolina coast all in one day okay yeah so that was a little unusual to have that happen and that was before the official beginning of hurricane season but you had hurricanes virtually year round same thing with tornadoes it's not global warming it's just the C. that's just kinda how it is I want to let you know that coming up in the next trending topics a little bit of a tease Joe Biden said police should train by.

"New Orleans after hurricane Katrina the comes just in extreme example of a larger reality you see and so here's something you wrote parts so beautifully stated in fact each one of us individually if we if we stopped to take it apart has a story of a million events or actions are people without which we would not be and you wrote trace it far enough and this very moment in your life becomes a rare species the result of a strange evolution of butterfly that should already be extinct and survived by the inexplicable eighties we call coincidence yeah and it's also about the unpredictability of our lives and that ground for hope I talk about that we don't know what forces are at work what who and what is going to appear what thing we may not have even noticed or may have discounted that will become a tremendous force in our lives you people in this culture love certainty so much and they seem to love certainty more than hope and so which is why they often sees on these really kind of bitter despondent narratives that are they know exactly what's going to happen and that certainties just seems so tragic to me I want people to tell more complex stories doll H. that Slims we win and that there are these openings but an opening is just an opening you have to go through it and make something happen and you don't always win but if you try you don't always lose yet you don't always win but I I think that your compact your idea that history is like and in fact our lives are like the weather or not like checkers so so your point which actually is I would say is the kind of complexity of I think the ology at its best imposes you know that you walk through the openings and perhaps you don't win that battle or you don't see the results you hoped for perhaps you outright lose but the complex where you're wanting to tell the stories of reality and realizes that whatever we do there there are always consequences that that we don't control and can't see and can't calculate but they matter the count I am involved with loves to say a and I'm getting that from from co and I'm getting it wrong that that we know what we do we know why we do it but we don't know what we do does and I love that sense that you know we don't we don't know consequences you know we concert we can learn and surmise and a lot of what matters is indirect and non linear and he's like even checker seems too sophisticated in complex for the metaphor used phone where people are like are they we knocked all the pins down with his bowling ball you know where we had a gutter ball and nothing happened and it's like you know my my wonderful environmentalist friend chipboard likes to talk about the tyranny of the quantifiable and I've been using that phrase of his for about fifteen years and it is a kind of tyranny I have that I think and it does get mystical were you have to look at what's not quantifiable Martin Luther king is assassinated in nineteen sixty eight a comic book about how civil disobedience works that was distributed during the civil rights movement gets translated into Arabic and distributed in Egypt and becomes one of the you know immeasurable forces that help feed the Arab spring which is five years old right now and most of it doesn't look that good but they did overthrow a bunch of regimes and the French Revolution didn't really look for a good five years out I was gay yeah and it's so important that you point that out did we and also our revolution these things are messy and they take generations and we forget that and we're already like calling it as a loss and it's absurd really absurd yeah and you know and I think that they're really good good points to be made that for example that that overthrowing a dictator is nice but you need democratic institutions in Egypt for example that the military was a power that didn't go away and you need to not just have that amazing moment in the streets and that rupture but you need to have an ongoing engagement with transforming the system and making it accountable but what happened matter never the less I think for people many people in the Middle East just a sense that it's not inevitable that we live in authoritarianism we are not powerless and I think of Alexander Dubcek you know the hero of the Prague Spring of nineteen sixty eight which was quashed playing a role in the nineteen eighty nine revolution over to that country's of true yeah yeah and to the you know I want better metaphors I want better stories I want more openness I want better questions all these things feel like they give us tools that are a little more commensurate with the amazing possibilities and the terrible realities that we face the what we get given so often or just these kind of clumsy inadequate tools they they don't help they don't open things up they don't shed light the dome leaders to interesting places they don't let us know how powerful we can be they don't help us asks the questions that really matter instead start with rejecting the narratives we're told and telling our own stories becoming the storyteller rather.

That others have walked down the same road and there is victory. Let's get into today's episode. Want to tell you a story. True story my wife and I were in our second year of marriage. No I guess it was year of marriage. Yeah I think that's right And we lived in Mississippi at the time and one day My wife was heading to work and I was off to work as well and then we heard there's a storm coming so I went to blockbuster video rented. Some movies came home earlier because my work has cancelled. I worked at a small little college there and my wife also got the news. It was Hurricane Katrina by the time she got home. Power was out so much reading the movies and we hunker down in our houses that storm hit. We were three hours north of the coast yet. I have some video of the trees. Bending in by it hit our house. It hit your fences. Torn up destroyed. We had no power I for a week or two no sewer and she's pregnant with our first Our Son Alex and I'm not okay either healthwise and it's an interesting time. It was a it was a challenge. It's funny we actually think back on that and a lot of great memories road trip. We ended up Storm was coming. We had two cars both had practically empty tanks. Had to go sit in the line where you start the car. Move up little kill it. Start the car move up a little bit. Kill it until he can finally get gas Because the the rationing and the limits there from from Hurricane Katrina So much devastation. So many people killed so many people displaced neighbors some of their family in nursing homes down towards the coast Killed in the process of trying to move so much Pain yet. Where would it lead to us for us was during that time baby on the way? Us kind of analyzing our life. We ended up making some pretty big decisions. That was I think. August ish think that's right and then we turn in my resignation at my job. put our house on the market by Christmas moved to Texas in with my mom and Dad That was a challenge I'm working on my last chapter. Dissertation was able to finish that. We had our SILEX. A healthy baby. Boy I was able to finish my degree and I sold our house and then got my first teaching position full-time on the amazing. And here's the key. I couldn't have orchestrated any of that. Every little decision was with the unknown about the next piece in the next. You know what's around the corner. It took faith. It took us a couple trusting each other and working together as a but it took faith faith in God that actually has our life in his hands and wants the best for us but it also doesn't mean he's going to protect from bad things necessarily would be careful how we unpack that And he allows those things and they challenges challenges and they grow US and I ended up having like we had so much broken stuff in and and Stuff to fix at the house What it led to find. I really enjoyed that. I so I did a lot of that so then we moved to Georgia. Bought a house winded up buying a house in eighteen hundreds because that was what was in our budget And we stayed within our budget and we bought a house that I fixed up a took a night and eighteen. Ninety three house looked abandoned and restored over seven years and it was an amazing labor of love but it was therapy as I was still navigating that some of those health issues this is marriage the unknowns risks of the leaps of faith. Because that's what it took when Kelly and I left Mississippi and moved to Texas. Neither of US had jobs. It was a completely faith house on the market. Load up a you all drive away hope. The House sells it was completely faith. Faith wet how we got to Texas put stuff in a storage unit. She had a job and then I had a job and then we worked for about six months while I finish dissertation and stuff. You don't know what's around the corner. Can you have faith and can you band together as a husband wife because that is one of the most critical things you have as a as a family? Is Use a couple? And then that builds a legacy for your children as you navigate those things together especially in those early years then you build that into your children and the risks. They'll take or won't take and how they actually view God and his faithfulness.

so true so I can say really fired up very passionate about this I am not going to let it lie DM I will contact Tomah meet with a and say what can we do can the city start reaching out and partnering and reaching out to box pops and doggy district all of these places that the huge the big facilities that all of specifically for animals what a man does not just talk hello so there you go and it's all a good will be enacted enacted but people do like to be provided no one wants to be caught in that situation I'm in I I looked at them what some of those new stories with the people in ridgecrest California after the earthquake I felt bad for them because it was at Wedowee gal you know what are we doing and how do we do this and and if you've got a little bit of a you know information it can help you tremendously anyway well going to finish the show on on a I'm pretty quick on the show this is a very short show if you wrap it up now I've gone the story that long though yeah it's not that long own hate by the way if your city has a good pet emergency plan let me know please let me know I would love to see what other cities are doing to avoid chaos and confusion I would be so mad if I went to a shelter I would lose by telling me my I would really be quite upset about that here we go here we go this is a great story I mean a really great story Holland officially becomes the first country with out stray dogs and how the heck did they do that I mean here's the thing I think sometimes it because we work so closely with the rescue I I'm not sure we look at big picture often I think we look at I'm saving this dog right now I'm saving this cat right now this Robert needs a home can somebody donate something I can foster at other data but we're not looking really at a level of how do we eradicate all of that how do we do that you know it's amazing because it's it's not the solution because it's not improving a continually keeps happening your people dumping I was all sad stories change minds yes changing the process a human level listen at a definitely as if you're not talking to people about said and different kinds of arenas then how can you impart to just make people think differently this morning Jim boulder city we just wrote that last night walking the dogs boulder city of dog was left abandoned tied to a pole someone had scratched in the pavement my dog's name is Luna please give my dog at home what I know luckily the dog is now the shelter is it one of the dogs we saw last night I didn't see any dogs the big ten no no no it was a dark colored dog his I am in I've never seen this so the dog to the shelter thankfully because he is just baking hot right now the dogs in the shelter and the shelter purposely out does anyone know who Luna's onerous because we want to meet with them and see if we can keep them together it could be a financial thank you just don't know why someone would do that I know it's dead easy to judge I do all the time not horrible person it's a hundred and fifty five thousand degrees outside you love your dog tied to a pole I mean come on the Robert to solutions like going to the shelter to surrender whatever anyway never seen that they've reached out now build cities not very big how many people live that you have a thirty three thousand eyes is not huge everybody knows everybody and I guarantee you people tend to reckon he's having holes dogs well they do people so that someone's going to probably come forward and say you know what I know what I don't live or did live it's at this house all I saw the present what that dog you know every day whatever it is or maybe they're just said we want to meet with him so we can go write a citation well I hope no they actually said we want to see if they we can keep them together they did say that I've never seen I've never seen that I mean people people often don't know what the solutions are they don't and they do things like that and so I'm gonna keep following up on the story and we'll update you on that and see exactly what happens if I want to go on that page right now sees any kind of update but it looks a little to talk to you comment so sad I hate to see anything like that anyway let's get back to the story of the strays in Holland and it is rather incredible have to say but they've been working very hard to fix the stray dog problem and the city's finally paid off now the Netherlands has officially become the first country with strict he talks I love that statement this I went to that ever happen hopefully of the country's assimilation will follow at what holidays does show the world it can be done yeah now here's the background about the whole stray dog problem in Holland I guess I guess it they've got a massive at dog population and at one point nearly every family in Holland had a dog as it was viewed as a symbol of social standing that was in the night's nineteenth century ducks did become very popular than they were they were assigned to states want a jam unfortunately there was an outbreak in rabies that spread quickly became one of the leading causes of death and due to the overwhelming fear the dog owners of Holland began to abandon that dogs this section was considered legal mystery soon became filled with stray homeless dogs it's very sad isn't it so this is how they did it yeah first step was to realize Asians Holland wanted to fix the problem they created and it began with mandatory sterilization castration all of which were completely free of charge and paid for by the government see that's that's the first thing yeah because of this Holland was able to two six seven two percent of female talks that's a high percentage and they said to each and every dog also got some free medical examinations and faxing vaccines if they would need it so that was the first thing that they did so the date the economic straying was not the Baria you could go get you don't fix are there was a new law then put into place and it was a law against abandonment so in order to gain more control of the situation a new law was passed to the protected these animals as well as the Daniels health and welfare and the new law encourage honest provide pets with adequate treatment and to eliminate the use and if the owners don't abide they could be punished up to three years in prison and a fine highland sixteen thousand dollars so basically the same with serious were not abusing animals when not abandoning animals and if you do this is these are the consequences now taxes taxes taxes they said in this article that that that the Dutch government also raise taxes on the purchase of Brett dogs and dog you can purchase in stores how encourage straight dog adoption okay so I see how they did that so they made it so expensive it would say the shelter you're not getting any less of a dog we all know that so yeah that seems to have worked and then awareness of course is a big massive campaign and that they run campaigns to raise awareness of the situation people have the opportunity to cap a homeless puppies and soon fell in love with them and as over a million stray dogs manage to find a forever family a million dogs now the campaign was so successful that led to ninety percent of the population adopt a stray dog as a pet nine to eight percent so impressive and they said this incredible government program what begins all of us it's a I can only imagine what that will hold would that be like here Jim all my gosh it would just be a find an update on Luna are you a con it's not on the page now there's a picture of the dog tied up and what did scratching the pavement dog's name I went on the website no no you have to go to the Facebook page do I have to do that so when they get everything for an update if there is one different technology I have to switch so this with this government program it worked and the I'm I'm I can imagine people against a lot of those things but they also created a group of policemen who are in charge of protecting the safety of dogs called animal cops and today puppies living in the Netherlands are not only living comfortable in homes there also accepted in most of the country stores restaurants and other establishments gosh that makes it numbers your life so much easier when you want to spend so much time with your pets and you know what there's nothing there's nothing better than in reaching your all your pets given them as much enrichment as possible and this is why I think when I go back home to England people think oh man I've seen this before it was set up I went to the state and where I'm from the state relenting then only goes to talk to so much better behaved I don't think it's so much that I think is more about the experience to get more experience to get to go to the pub with you yeah they get to go to the country fat with you so they get these experience to get to go on the train so I think that makes a world of difference in a dog that used to those kind of things how great would that be B. to be able to definitely go shopping without it tough to help this the whole the lady with the dog and any kind of difference establishment if they make it easy to have a pet in your life and I just tip my hat to them jam I'm very happy about that so what you'll find older city animal controller boulder city animal shelter I don't know which is to search it on this probably the shell I did those see and be advised boulder city posted assistant picture of a big snake O. said nothing but be careful when you're out with your pets this is hot weather in the southwest and those are out well did you check the shelter or did you check which one did you check on the boulder city animal control so you check the other one so I'm gonna check the animal shelter and where is it by the way well maybe it's this one I don't know a few pages you know some people put up their own personal pages to help get the most up to date as much as they can.

When woman named Diane French coal testified in two thousand five before congress that she actually heard the explosions of levees being blown up in the midst of Katrina poets eye witnesses that they bombed the walls of the living and the debris in front, my dole will testify to that. So what do we mean breach? It really speaks to something that a very beloved and central local community activists made this claim then this was something that she repeated in till her death in two thousand seventeen we can also point out that a lot of what people feared would happen after Hurricane Katrina did happen. Poor black neighborhoods were rebuilt at a slower rate than wealthier parts of town. People really were permanently displayed as a result of Hurricane Katrina just as people claimed was the plan all along, we've demonstrated I suppose now to a fairly. Well, that sometimes there are conspiracies and the government is misbehaving in ways large and small, but let's now return to bunkers. You've been at events where the speakers were talking about secret space armies and getting extravagant applause, the UFO.

"Rescue wise. Is I think we use it more often? But I'm not a rescue expert either in theory. It's good idea. But you know, how like especially commanders are when you're getting these big government bureaucracies lying in their hands for for like a civilian rescue relief. I just feel like yes, that's a tactically sound way to do it in a lot of cases. But I can just see someone behind a desk being like, yeah, we're not going to jump in special ops, the optics. You know, the media could spend some of those those optics, right? So for me. It's also like it's a it's a civil nonviolent. Maybe maybe they just need to carry side arms. Yeah. And then you're putting the teams at risk too. Because like, I mean, I've, you know, there's been situations where some of these places where they don't always cover it. But there there's stuff that goes on where your you need some kind of protection. Yeah. Yeah. For sure like Hurricane Katrina. Right. Yes. A little sketchy. Yeah. But I mean, I. In my mind. It can be used to you know, as a civil civil systens mission that also doubles as you know, some real life experience on the infiltration technique. Yeah. And and on the medic skills as well for sure I mean, and the key thing is early mobilization. So whatever you're going to do whether it's jumping in or getting teams in via helicopter there needs to be can plan. So that I think the issue with after Katrina was that there wasn't really a lot of impetus to get people there early. Now, I think almost overreact. Where at least when I was still in anytime other nature would even far cough. It was like we're going to mobilize you guys. And it's like a four inch snowstorm, and it's like we're gonna get like special ops rescue guys on call. But I don't know what the happy medium is there because. Yeah. I mean, you're probably better off over preparing under. But then you're twirling your thumbs and doing nothing could pay for it. Sit around do nothing allow politicians look so bad after Katrina, you know, and that's why George Bush sent eighty. Second airborne down there after it was already all over right? Yeah. Can you talk a little bit about some of your deployments as far as like where where you went? What you did what what it's like being a PJ deployed in support of a task force or whatever the cool thing about being a patriots. Like, you don't always do the same thing a deployment. So my first deployment. I was basically doing like combat search and rescue four like some of the assault forces that were down there. So you're you're more of a contingency. And that's where for the most part you're hoping that you don't get emission because you're their support some very specific missions and objectives. And if you're utilize that means that one of your fellow Americans out of casualty on target. So you don't want that. But it was a good first plummet just because you're in the aircraft a lot. I got the sit in a lot of the briefs with the assault units. And so he's gonna see how how they operate from like a situational awareness standpoint. It was very helpful just to be constantly listening and knowing what's going on the only actual missions. I got on that deployment was just some. Recovery's? Amend toy airplanes crash? Yeah. Exactly. From my first deployment. I actually went right to my second deployment without the option to go home for a month or to just stay in country. And then go from Iraq Afghanistan, and I was like I have to go home for three to four weeks..
