"Was there any particular part of that that you found the most interesting or hoped you would be doing when you were. Deployed eye was really brainwashed during world war. Two by the movies The newspapers radio posters. And i really believed that. The japanese were super evil and we were super good. I was just. I don't wanna say snowed. But i was just psychologically affected Never dreaming Getting into it was the propaganda that got to me. And i would just looking forward to being a marine going into combat never dreaming that anything could happen so after training. How much of a time span was there between that and being deported. After training it was immediately went overseas. But even going overseas left Norfolk and the ship called the florence nightingale and we're going through the panama canal. But i i in cuba where we got. Liberty in cuba was quite a place for liberty and in the nineteen forties and then we stopped in panama which was got liberty in panama. And then i went to a replacement depot and hawaii. And i thought my god. This is just a marvelous. Exactly what i expect. That wasn't a celebrity cruise but it was the navy treated royally. You could sleep on deck and you could eat anytime you wanted or have cough anytime you want. All you had to do was stand in line so it was It was just up until that point. It was marvelous and got even better when they sent me to guam Which was being liberated by the third marine division. They sent me by With four other three other replacements and we went by aircraft carrier. and this. that's like a that's like a cruise. I mean even at an ice cream bar there Everything but a nightclub on and that was a short term crews and then the proverbial hit the fan. When i landed at guam then.

"A promise that hit the beaches of Normandy of Vow captured Iwo Jima, a contract that whether Ted a pledge that stormed the desert in Iraq and I owe you braved IED's in Canada are a promise was made to America's veterans D A. V fights to keep that promise. So all veterans and their families get the benefits and support they earned for help. Visit D a V dot or g'kar. Hey, folks, I'm gonna mention to you about America at a crossroads and man are we had a crossroads. I want to tell you about that It is a pastor's conference. We're doing the America at the crossroads again. This time in the state of Georgia, where desperately needs to be done as you can imagine, And that's why we chose that place, so it's going to be in at Callaway Resorts and Gardens. Pine Mountain, Georgia. That's how you if you are a pastor in Georgia, if you know a pastor in Georgia. We're going to get three nights, all their meals, all their notebooks, refreshments for them and their wife three night stay. At this resort, and all they have to do is register and pay $100. So that's it, $100 So, um I hope that you will. Be able to get there. It's so so critically important. You gonna hear some amazing speakers You are going to get so fired up. I would say to you Listen, Pastor. I would say to you that your pulp It's never going to be the same. I'm serious. Heard from so many pastors after the one we did in Dallas. I wasn't there. I didn't get to that. But I wasn't there. But the one that was done in Dallas. I heard from so many pastors thanking me. For letting them know about it. I said it is. Changed and you know and change their their preaching. And the commitment to God. And that's what we need. That's what America needs more than anything else, So I hope I know it's not a great time. It's December 13. It starts on a Sunday at six o'clock, it will be done by Wednesday. At noon. I know this isn't a great time, but I don't have to tell you about Georgia and how critical it is. So it is a great time from that perspective. But I know it's close to Christmas. They have very limited seats, 150 peoples all they can take and rooms. Obviously, this is incredibly expensive. It's costing tens and tens of thousands of dollars probably $100,000 when it's all said and done for those that are that are sponsoring this, but they.

"We're really start with putting people first and then we keep people at. The center of everything that we do. It's really means we walk alongside of our clients from the very first thoughts. They have about a building all the way through completion in maintenance into the future I love it. That's what I'm glad that you're sponsor of this show in. So Great. How can people learn more about your company? Yes. So to learn just a little bit more about us, you could go to, Hutton, builds dot com slash together we built grape in thanks for being sponsor. Exactly what Jim said and he and Jim Struggle. The same thing he struggled. For he said the for huge part of his life about reconciling. Why he lived in why? So many of the great men didn't you know he struggled with that he drank a lot too and you know he struggled with drinking all through the fifties and even in the sixties. And hard himself and his wife said, you know he's Always. Have Nightmares and nieces and. He's just like and they just they just kept trodden along and I think that it just for me when I hear stuff like that it just. It put things in perspective and it makes me kind of embarrassed a little bit of some of the things that I bitch and Moan about in. In in the grand pop culture scheme of things to it makes me a little depressed too that just how much. That they sacrifice you know and we're approaching Gosh, you know the guys are going to be gone here in the next five six years you know it's just. All of them. Amazing. So what it was the big takeaway for you so if you had time to digest. Marinate on this experience. Are there any kind of? Poignant lessons or lessons where you actually changed you think either either both mentally or even the how you look at life well. In a way I miss being immersed in it once the book was done because. It did make me feel. Really makes you appreciate your life and feel I. Guess it made me feel. Like I had served anything I know female absolutely. and. It has given me a really much deeper appreciation for people who serves there's no doubt about that. And it also makes me it makes me. Concerned about our culture. And about the future of the country in a way that I don't think I ever was before and that's just also because of things that have happened since then in all of these stories that cover every day and I feel that we. Owe. Them such a great debt and I want people to I. Want my children to understand it and I want their children to understand the and it's frustrating because it is hard to get people to care about it some time. So So those are just all the things that had a big impact on on me, and sometimes I'll just get these great letters from people who read the book and who have similar stories, and sometimes I'll just mark some of them and I read them to my family. Right so that they and they're always moved by them. That people don't want to go there so I that's just a small thing that I try to do to to keep their stories alive. Yeah I. Know exactly what you mean. I think it certainly same same thing and that's why I love hearing the stories busy 'cause it gives me personally that perspective that I think is important for me to you know again to make sure that what am I complaining about right it gives me that perspective but the frustration thing that resonates when you said that because. It's the same thing is like if I guess that's where I see the power in these stories because if if everybody knew these stories. You're right. Maybe we'd be looking at things with a little different colored Lens and we wouldn't be seen such the chaos that we see I don't know it is frustrating. I. Know I know exactly what you're saying? Speaking of that do you stay positive? I. Mean You know you're in this all the time and I got to be quite honest particularly, I've had to pull back from. From, this, this is your livelihood and in every single day in your constantly bombarded in trying to communicate these in soundbites. What's the latest greatest stories? How do you stay positive in this environment? I. Think. I'm optimistic by nature thankfully, which does help me. Although I do find myself in the past six months. Really grappling with. How hard it is you know how hard it is to be? Through this unusual environment at this time and I think that it's one of the most tragic battles to to battle this pandemic on a national scale. And the thing that's taken away from you from all of us as a nation is touch and. Intimacy, and you know with friends and family and being in those experiences that help people get through difficult times. So you know it's almost it's. You think about these young men and World War Two removed from their families far away and I think that was the hardest part for them but they did have each other and they had that incredible on that they created and I was worried enough about our country that social media and living with your smartphone and your ipod was isolating enough that it troubled me and now it's gone to a whole `nother level. And that that concerns me I think human interaction is the thing that is is i. think it's the most essential quality of life you think about a baby that's born and abandoned, and it needs to be help untouched right to thrive. So that's a neat. That's a human basic human need and I I very very much concerns me that we are all be deprived of that to some extent in this country right now and I think it breeds some scary things and I think we're seeing that play out in these protests than the rioting that's happening. There's a very deep. There's a deep unrest and it has a lot of different tentacles right now and so it's pretty is hard to stay. The optimist given what's going on in the country right now but I'm a big believer in in the country, a big labor and human nature. So those two things I know we will prevail but this is a very tough challenge tough time I think the same way. I look at it to I try to I. Think I'm a glass half full guy I mean I feel like I I know I am I'm with you on that and. I can't agree with you more that. Interaction piece the. The humanist the authenticity behind real human interactions and getting to know each other in your system. The the divisiveness was already there. It got accelerated with the lockdowns for sure. And then you know throw that on then throw the George Floyd on that and everything just releases. Everything is just so kind of scary. Really scary. It is I. Don't know what the break and I'm with you. This too shall pass and we will prevail. But the thing that keeps me awake is like at what at what cost you know at what cost? Where does it break? How long does it break and how long? I don't know those things kind of keep me awake at night. Sure. Yeah. Yeah. So you got the big debate coming up on Tuesday the first one and you're going to be in Cleveland and you're doing analysis is that what you're doing on that day well, I'll will be in Cleveland starting on Sunday. We'll do a special show on Sunday night at ten o'clock Barron I. As a preview, and then we'll do our regular shows from there on Monday night from the debate site, and then Tuesday is the big night and we will do a two hour preview show before the debate, Chris Wallace, of course who's hosting a moderating I should say and then we'll have now after afterwards with our panel so. It it's it's going to be very interesting. As, everybody knows and. There's so much to obviously there's so much for these candidates to talk about and I think that I hope people really tune and really listening closely because I do think it's a very consequential election. I think most people feel like they already know they're gonNa vote for we have a very slim margin of undecided voter but. We really be engaged all of us at this point and Important I. Agree with you. I think they're going to be audience members in this one or is it going to be just Chris with the very very scant I? Mean I think it's GonNa look a lot more like the old school first televised debates where there wasn't really Nixon is and it was the moderators, the candidates and cameras and a few media folks tech folks around I think is probably going to be the feel of it. Maybe that's a good thing because maybe then. Maybe, they've playing for the zingers in the crowd response maybe you know. That's true. I mean, it does change the dynamic and You. Know we always to..

As we're recording, this is the first presidential debate debate which Chris Wallace is moderating, but Martha along with Bret, Baier. are going to provide the pre imposed analysis which I enjoy watching I enjoy watching with analysis more than watch like Washington debate but that's what she's a part of in Irish my brought on the show. Is Because She had this book come out in February and I try to do this then when the book push was coming in Cova happening everything Kinda got sideways but finally things kind of settle down I. Finally got her back or finally got her on the show and she's got this book called Unknown Valor to story of family courage and sacrifice from Pearl Harbor to Jima, and it's about The behind the scenes struggle or the sacrifices of everything that happened in Iwojima, and of course, he would deem as important to me as a primary I've studied it. Read many books. So many books about it. I mean it is a place of. Reverence for any marine. That knows anything about the history of that battle is just was so many lives lost so many casualties on both sides on such a small strip of land, but it was a critical battle. And we've all seen the famous picture of the flag-raising Abuse Jima Right now connick. World War Two picture. But what I love about this in particular if you've never not a fan of history and maybe think we'll we'll how does pertain to to leadership and everything else There's a lot of takeaways there and I think for me when you listen this conversation with me and Martha, that's what Martha got from him because she's not a she wasn't a fan of of history she knew on the service levels about Iwojima World War Two. But she really don't into this because she had a relative she had some letters she found. Great Aunt of a family member who actually died over there in those letters sparked a kind of investigation in this book in her life was changed by it, and that's what I think is important when you study history and the reason why study history particularly the sacrifices that were made. As leader helps you to always put things in perspective to realize how good we have it now. To realize that there's been so many challenges that were standing on so many great shoulders and I think it's our obligation to give reverence to that, and that's why I think. This book is important I love this book it's when it is my favorite book about Iwo, Jima. it's written so well, and I highly encourage you to check this book out you Fanta history or not. It doesn't matter. this will impact your life deeply trust me trust me on this I want you to get this book. I want you to read it and I want you to reach out to let me know what you thought in Martha's just so fun to talk to. So Fun so great such an I wish it could on a longer I'd love to get her back to deep dive and some more particularly political stuff at a later date. But this is what we focus on. We did talk a little bit about the debate here, but you're going to have so much fun listening to this. All right.

And it was interesting because divorce who you met who is the executive producer is interviewing this guy about we did that favorite place in America segment. But also interviewing them about the book and saying what a hero that his dad was. And he was extremely antiwar. And he was just like, yeah. I don't see it as roic. I don't see it as something. I'm proud of. And it was actually like the complete opposite of what you thought. And he was very adamant about his antiwar stance. But came out I think a couple of years later was that apparently his father did raise a flag at Iwo Jima. But it was not the iconic photo of the flag raised Ideo Jimmy. He thought it was it's not like he was contrasting false information. But apparently there were several men who thought that they raised the flag and that I conduct photo. But that it turned out it wasn't them. And he actually made a statement. I remember in the article that he was like I had my suspicions that it might have been a different one. But it's it's not like, he was you know, you know, I think when we look back and we reflect back on war, particularly as veterans. We all have our own perspectives. And some of us come to this conclusion become very anti-war, and there's nothing necessarily wrong with that. It's okay to to have that stance or have that view. I just think there's something incredibly disingenuous about serving in combat so enthusiastically, and I wanted to be there. I was volunteer. But then coming home after the facts ban like in now. Now, I go to a liberal university or whatever. And now I wanna fit in with that crowd. So all of a sudden, I'm an antiwar activist or whatever I don't believe that shit for a second. You look at people like that. It's like. I'm not buying it. Although I mean, people do change. Absolutely. I just think it's important distinguish the difference between when you served enthusiastically involuntarily, but then the second you get out of the military, all of a sudden, the horrors of war and all this kind of stuff. It's like I can get it on some level in that. I think that's why I mean, it's known. That's why guys are recruited at like seventeen eighteen because they're not knowledgeable about this type of stuff. Yeah. I wanna see some action. They're not well read up on politics. And then they come back, home and their view of this thing is completely changed. I get absolutely. I mean war will change you for sure. And that's why I say I mean, I don't hold it against anyone for coming back from war and having antiwar sentiments, I mean, that's perfectly reasonable to feel that way. I just think that some people are disingenuous and how they express it. Or if nothing else, they're not honest about their own frame of mind, when they served they try to make themselves out to be like victims, you know, that their consent was manufactured by the machine and the institutions of government. It's like, no, you're kind of responsible for your own actions. I in you know, if you went over there, and you did some things you probably shouldn't have done you're responsible for that to which we talked about on the woke that spot. We've talked about a lot of this stuff in the past. I understand the people who do come back for sure. And I think even you would be in this category come back, and they're adamant about you know, that war is an absolute last last year. Yeah. Well, you have a little diplomacy. And if that doesn't work then this is our last-resort. I'm very much about pumping the brakes on on the wars. We're fighting right now, I think it's gotten completely out of control. And we now have a war as an institution in this country where we're permanently at war. And it seems like nothing can scale that back. Nothing can stop that. This comes at a time where we're confronting obviously, the global war on terror, but at the same time, we're trying to confront Russia, China, Iran and North Korea and simultaneously fight a war against terrorism worldwide. Okay. Something's gotta give. It's like look at that list of bad guys and pick one..
