"Com first guest of the day. Wonderful time and given the big, big things happening across the country tomorrow, Pennsylvania elsewhere is an individual who kind of embodies the new breed of maga America first author entrepreneur JD Vance. Welcome back to America first. Thanks for having me, Seth, good to be with you. Now, you worked in public relations in the Marine Corps. You're an incredibly successful author. Now you're a citizen politician, got to get your take on the deplorable thing didn't work too well for Hillary. You know, Americans took it as a kind of badge of courage, this insult. Now, after 6 months, we find out 6 months of very expensive focus group analysis, they came up with the ultra maga insult that Biden used. Do you think this is going to fair as well as deplorables did? No, I don't said. I mean, look, the big problem here is the Democrats that got to stop insulting the people who they want to vote for them. So common sense, you know, we don't like a lot of Democrat politicians and I don't like a lot of Democrat leaders and the media industrial complex that supports them. But you don't insult people who are, you want their vote. This is something that Hillary Clinton never learned. It's not just the ultra maga thing. Do you remember the vaccine mandate speech that Biden gave probably, I don't know, 8 or 9 months ago so and the way that he talked about the unvaccinated were like basically like they were sewer rats that they were about to enter and experience a winter of death and discontent. It just don't talk about people like that in a constitutional republic, but of course these people don't see themselves as leaders in a constitutional republic. They see themselves as rulers of their subjects and that's the

I mean, Josh mandel JD Vance has been in the public eye for a long time. Is this because do you think that this is because people are looking for really just something fresh, something that breaks away from the politics as usual that has been going on? Well, you know, I don't know how they view me, but I've heard they think I'm I tell the truth and I'm authentic. I know that's how I succeeded in business. I thought it would carry over in politics, apparently it doesn't all the time.

"And it eventually led to the opportunity to go to Iraq when ISIS invaded and started attacking and killing and the lord told me to go through my wife. And I had just come back from Burma and she's like, I think the lord wants you to go to Iraq. And I'm like, no, he doesn't. And we got in a good discussion about it. And I'm like, hey, I still got the mosquito fever right now. I'm not ready to, and she goes, we ought to pray. Have you prayed yet? I'm like, what's that got to do with it? And she said, pray. And I did. I didn't even finish the prayer. The lord said, yeah, you're going to go. And then I put together a team, the mission was to help some girls who had been held captive by ISIS to help them recover from the trauma of it. And this was while ISIS is everywhere. I put together a great team, former SEAL Team guys, delta, some marines, did I say seal? Still team guys, because if there's a picture taken, you got to have a seal. I served in the Marine Corps, so some of you will get that. And put the team together. I said, okay, this is the mission.

"My dad joined the marines because he said he could go with the action is and he loved the uniform. Why did you join the marines? Well, I joined the Marine Corps because when my grandmother died I was 18 years old at the time I was supposed to go to college, the very next month I was all set, everything my courses, my books were bought. But when she died, I looked at her in the casket, and I thought, well, what's the purpose of life if you're just going to die, all the good that she did, all the love she's dead. You see, I knew the lord, but I, you know, I was 18 years old. What do I really know? And I just thought my life was over. And I saw a jet magazine. I flipped it open. There was a Marine Corps advertisement. This was in Jamaica. It was in Jamaica. And I said, that's it. I'm going back to America, and the marines will give me a reason to live because I need some discipline, and that so when I joined the Marine Corps I was still a Jamaican citizen. But

And I said to Brett pere last night, you know, those go off course by ten miles and you've got that every square inch of NATO involved. What does NATO do when a missile goes awry? Yeah, we ought to worry about that deeply. And I kind of picture some 24 year old Russian drinking whatever the Russian version of Red Bull is. And he's Tapping in coordinates and one of those missiles goes across that border and hits, let's say, a U.S. command post. We've got a significant number of deployed troops now in that region. And now Todd Walters, general Todd Walters, my relief supreme allied commander in NATO, he is going to respond. And very quickly, you're in a highly escalatory ladder.

Retired Marine Lt General Says Many Americans Have 'Warfare Dementia'

"Every now and then it's really refreshing to hear from a marine who is not in high heels. And I'm using that phrase metaphorically because we have here a retired marine three star general who in the face of all this kind of wokeness, this racial propaganda, this gender nonsense is climate, you know, climate change is the greatest threat facing the country and the military is now going to be prepared to deal with climate change. So here is lieutenant general Gregory newbold. And I think what he said to himself is I need to. I need to put down. I need to remind the civilian population of what the military is and what it does. And I think it's for me, it was kind of a sobering article to read. Gregory, by the way, retired Marine Corps lieutenant general, his commanded platoons divisions. He was directive operations for the joint chief of staff in The Pentagon. So this is basically a heavy hitter. And I want to read some of his statements because I think they kind of know them to be true, but you can see how alien woke culture is to what this guy is talking about. He goes many Americans, especially our most senior politicians and military leaders. He's including military leaders, seem to have developed a form of dementia when it comes to warfare. Think of how serious this is and how dangerous. He goes, the result is confusion or denial about the essential ingredients of a competent military force. And he says the danger, it's one thing if politicians go blah blah blah, but he goes to the condition is exacerbated and enabled when the most senior military leaders who want to know better. The far to the idealistic judgments of those whose credentials are either nonexistent, or formed entirely by ideology. Now, we get to the meat of his point. The U.S. Military has two main purposes, he says. To deter our enemies from engaging us in warfare, and if that fails to defeat them in combat, deterrence is only possible of the opposing force believes it will be defeated, respect is not good enough, fear and certainty are required. So that's the theory of deterrence in a nutshell. Now, the U.S. Military says general newbold can not be a mirror image of the society it serves. Values that are admirable in civilian society, sensitivity, individuality, compassion, tolerance for the less capable, are often antithetical to the traits that deter a potential enemy in wind wars that must be fought. General newborn goes on to say the values of the military cultivates conformity, discipline, duty.

What to Know About J.D. Vance's 'Hillbilly Elegy'

What to Know About J.D. Vance's 'Hillbilly Elegy'

"We have I think an exciting guest. His name is JD Vance, and he's sitting right here. JD, welcome. Thanks for having me. I never thought to ask you this. I didn't plan to ask you this, but my first question is, what is JD stand for? I could have looked it up, but I'd rather ask you, not Jack Daniels, James David. James David. The joke, because it was Jack Jack Daniels, but just James David. When did you, well, I want to introduce you semi properly. You're known mostly for having written what has nothing less than a spectacular book a memoir called hillbilly elegy, which was then turned into a movie. Yeah. So not many young people write books about their lives. And certainly not many young people have books that they've written about their lives turned into movies on Netflix. So it's kind of an interesting thing that your life is really public. Nonetheless, I'm sure tons of people in my audience aren't familiar with it. So there's a reason it was a bestseller. And it's not just because you're a good writer. It's because your story, which you did not plot or invent is an amazing story. So for my audience, which would you would you tell my audience, the guts of that story? Yeah, so I guess the summary is, I was raised by my grandparents, and they were working class people, my grandfather worked at a steel mill. And if you back up a little bit, my grandparents grew up in southeast you can talk to a cool country. So the deep poverty you think John F. Kennedy is showing up on the cabins of people who are extremely poor back in the 1960s. That's where they came from. And they moved to southwestern Ohio in the 1950s because that was sort of land of opportunity. And the story of my family sort of mirrors the story of the town that I grew up in, which is relative prosperity in the 50s and 60s and then something sort of started to decline. My mom got into drugs, was not able to take care of me for a long time in my childhood, which is why my grandparents figures so prominently in my life and we were hillbillies. We were hillbilly migrants to southwestern Ohio and my grandmother loved to cuss. She had a lot of guns, and she also had a lot of love and a lot of discipline. And those things were, I think, very important for me being able to live a good life. And so the story is sort of on the one hand, I went on to the Marine Corps. I went to Ohio State. I went to Yale law school. I sort of found myself in a rarefied world that nobody in my family had ever dreamed of. But then on the other hand, it's like, well, what happened to the town that I grew up in? And why is it that places like Middletown were places of opportunity in the 50s? And then by the time that I was a kid in the 1990s, it was like everybody was just saying, get out of this

Project Veritas Founder James O'Keefe on EcoHealth, DARPA and Fauci Lying Under Oath

"James, I want to ask you, you also exposed this story. I think last week, doctor Robert Malone and Naomi wolf say that this is bigger than The Pentagon papers. So it's potentially civilizational altering stuff. The story has multiple parts, one with darpa, and then one with potential suppression of early treatments. There's a mention of the trusted truth initiative. James, can you kind of update our audience on this story? So these were documents that, again, were transmitted to us from a source. I wonder if the FBI will raid me again that you're starting to certainly sense a pattern here. It's absurd. I won't tell you who the source is, but we received documents from inside the Department of Defense, specifically darpa, defense advanced research projects agency in Arlington, Virginia, which is a division of the Department of Defense, and these documents were authored by a major in the United States Marine Corps who was a fellow at darpa. So effectively they're sort of Pentagon papers that we've broken last week. And the documents state that eco health alliance, this group approached darpa in the Department of Defense for a gain of function research on COVID born coronaviruses in March of 2018. The Defense Department rejected this proposal on the grounds it was too risky. It was too dangerous. So our department defense thought, no, now that we can't proceed with this research for obvious reasons, it was lead to, I don't know, a pandemic or something. And then the Marine Corps major writes in this document, but Anthony Fauci, as head of naid, a proceeded with this research. So the Marine Corps statements, obviously a credible source here inside darpa, would seem to indicate that Doctor Fauci live under oath. Now Charlie, we break the documents and the very next morning Fauci is being questioned by senator Marshall and Fauci does address project veritas mentions us by name, authenticates the documents, but calls into question the credibility of this report and the Marine Corps guy who wrote it. And I believe Fauci is playing semantic games because obviously there were two separate proposals here. Fauci didn't see the precise identical proposal that eco health alliance approached darpa with, it was a different one, but fascinating stuff. And I think that there'll be more whistleblowers and documents coming out as a result of this exposure.

"marine corps" Discussed on Dose of Leadership

"I think you say telling that story I just think back to that time that kind of epiphany even with smaller one, but even the Marine Corps, I remember walking in, saying, asking for permission for something. And I had a kind of a mediocre CO and then we got a really good one. And that transition from the really good one was like, wow, this is such a great place to work. I mean, it just little things of like walking in from the old one because the old one was so kind of top down it had to run everything past him. And then you'd walk in and I'm like, sir, I was thinking about doing this and he would look up because what do you think you should do? You know, he would just ask the question, what do you think is the best thing to do? Well, I think the best thing to do this and just like, okay, then get out of my office. You know? And he said, just go do it. Yes. I remember I broke, go ahead. Well, I'm sorry to cut you off. We're obviously communicating here as if there's a fiber optic. People that are listening to this and watching it or saying, you know, I have a suspicion these guys are from similar backgrounds. Right. And you know, it goes to show people that are watching and listening in. You don't know me and I don't know you. Our careers did not overlap. We didn't even come remotely close to serving in the same locations and environments yet. We are talking the same sheet of music. And because we have the benefit, the unfair advantage of having been taught from a common book, a common SOP, common philosophies, concepts, tactics and techniques. So I love that. And I think I've learned my people have learned both in a Marine Corps and a corporate world that when you go to Mike 8 or you go in his office and you say, hey, there is a problem. The first thing Mike is going to say, well, what do you recommend? What do you propose? And so don't go to Mike with just a problem and not a solution. And if you go to Mike with a problem, and a solution, he's going to listen to it and he's going to say, that's a pretty good idea. Have the badded around with people in the chain of command. In other words, your staff NCOs, your managers, your supervisors, your peers, have you are you bringing me a proposed solution that harnesses the collective wisdom of the organization? Well, not true, the first few times like, well, no, I have, and I said, listen, it sounds good, but go see what the rest of the lieutenants say. Ask the staff and CEOs. In the business world, go ask the rest of the department heads. Ask the come to me and I guarantee you you'll come me with a better plan. Now what that meant is was in both environments after a while, they both knew. I got a problem. I'm going to propose solution. And let me tell you how many people looked at this and gave their input. And I'm like, sweet. And 99% of the time I would look at it and say, wow, I could have never could have never you given you guidance or direction of that level quality. What do you need? Can I get your coffee? What do you need? How can I help? I just need to step out of the way and I to remove obstacles and give you guys chow and water if you need it. I'm here to enable you. And that's again where the magic starts happening. The answers, as you know, Richard, the answers and solutions to almost every problem in an organization are always resident within the organization. It's already there. All you gotta do is ask and you have to have a culture where people are willing to speak truth to power because sometimes those answers and solutions are directly opposite to what Mike has said or what might prefer. And you have to be you have to have an environment to say, well, I'm Mike and I'm the sea level guy, but I can be wrong too. And I'll at least listen to you. And if your idea is as good as mine, that doesn't let me better if it's at least as good as mine, I'm going to go with your idea every time. And I think it's important to point out too that sometimes that transition particularly if you're new, you come in there. It's going to take some time to get particularly depending on what the culture was prior to yourself. It's going to take them a while to get to that goes back to that assumption that people will just be an open book and tell them when you ask them, oh, what do you need? Withhold, it takes a while to kind of build up to, oh, he takes a couple instances where you make a mistake or where you were wrong and how you respond to that. Hopefully you respond to it with confidence like, man, I really goon that up. Man, and you're just comfortable with it. It's like, hey, yeah, I made a mistake. It wasn't fatal. And then you start, that's when I noticed that where I you see that in the cockpit a lot flying and that's why I loved about flying in aviation. It was like there's like little microcosms of leadership experiments in a short frame of time. A guy does a bad landing or a guy misses a call. It does something, and how they respond to that mistake is telling, right? And I just kind of transpose that into the corporate world and longer arenas so it takes when you make that mistake. And how you respond to it, that can really accelerate. It's kind of like almost when that mistake happens where you are wrong boy that gives you a great opportunity to kind of accelerate this kind of open book or this trust based organization. You know, I've heard you. First of all, I agree Richard and I've heard you that just goes back years. I've heard you talk about this specific example of being in a cockpit and you being a captain and the pilot is a lieutenant colonel. And so there's rank involved and for those that aren't in the military. That's a big difference between a captain lieutenant colonel. He's your squadron commander potentially. And but you know he has done something wrong or is about to do something wrong. And you are compelled in that cockpit to tell him, sir, sir, we got to do that, sir. Sir, you know, you have to tell him otherwise aircraft is going to crash potentially and all of that. And so I just read a story last night about an aircraft pilot goes right to what your story got your analogy Richard and aircraft pilot was a foreign guy. I want to say he was perhaps a Middle Eastern airline. And he could be heard on the first leg of a flight, berating the co-pilot, as they were sending. It was like, it was quizzing a guy. What about this? What about that? You're an idiot..

He represents every single thing that award is supposed to represent as well. And then third, I told them, look, I think I was a very good captain. I think I maybe even better than average. I said, but I want you to listen to me lieutenants. Here's what I think I was really good at to your point earlier. I said, I was excellent, if not among the best at unleashing the power of corporals and sergeants. And so when I told them that I would throw up a graphic, this is the old days where we had slide for that right yet, but the overhead overhead. So I tell the Lamborghini overhead on with a thing and would be a rifle company TO. And I'd say and they have circles. There is the officers. And there's 5 of them. And here's the staff NCOs, and there's maybe 8 of those. I said, so you got 8 officers and a staff. I said, a lot of officers bet on the officers. A lot of officers bet on the officers and staff NCOs. Let me tell you what captain H were learned as a former Corporal sergeant staff sergeant. I bet on don't get me wrong. I wanted the officers and Stanford to pull their weight and they certainly did. But I think that in the PO at the time, it was like 65 or 72. Corporals and sergeants. I said now, these guys right here, if you can get half of those corporals and sergeants, doing what they need to do on their own initiative, bias for action, following your intent. That lieutenant is when the magic happens. And you'll be in a position where you have to hold them back, but you'll never have to kick them and they ask to get them going. And that's a lesson that I learned as a very young NCO, a very young staff sergeant, very young drill instructor. You know, I was a 20 year old drill instructor. And so that's very young. And I was the only non Vietnam vet in my class. And so think about the, there's a chapter in the book, the Marine Corps trusted me. It's about that story. And so think about the trust the Marine Corps had in a 20 year old non combat sergeant. Okay, go to the high school. Let's see what you got. And so they trusted me. They gave me a reputation to live up to. And I like to think I lived up to it. Well, I never forgot about that. I never forgot what it was like to be the Corporal sergeant staff sergeant that had people trust me. And I would have died rather than let them down. And business people, supervisors, managers, department heads, whatever the title is, whatever the rank structure is, they will die to. They'd rather die than embarrass their department. And so you can see, I am already spitting at my screen and all that I love that I'm so passionate about. Because you're hitting it right Richard, it's not the executives. You can have the best team of executives. But if there's an executive level that a VP level, then a director manager, supervisor, team lead, it's the director and below. If you have to get those ladies and gens on fire and point in their weapons in the same direction at the same target, oh, the magic happens. Oh, yeah, unstoppable. Yeah, I love that you're speaking. Music to my ears because I love finding those kind of particularly the corporate arena finding those real influencers. Number one, they don't know whether they're the influencer. And when you give them, I also learn too that not everybody wants that empowerment. I kind of assumed that the whole everybody wanted it. I learned the hard way that not everybody does. But at the same time, I don't have to get everybody to your point. If I can just get enough brand ambassadors and enough hard chargers enough type a's, I made the mistake my earlier on in the corporate arena, I tried to get all my C's and D's and the bees and a's, and that was wasted energy. So then I started focusing all my energy on the a's and B's. And what I found is that the season D is either move themselves out. You know, I just set a level of expectations up here, and if you didn't meet them, you either would force yourself out. They would force themselves out, or they would force themselves up into the bees and a's. I spent too much time trying to. I kind of went against my marine what I learned in the Marine Corps. You know what I mean? And I learned. I saw that in the Marine Corps, right? There was this, you didn't spend a lot of time trying to bring right? I mean, am I saying that right? I mean, if I think back to my Marine Corps, you're so much longer and so much more marine esque being in the infantry side as me being an aviator. But even on the aviation side, it's like to be an aircraft commander so quickly. It's like the expectations they never dumbed it down for me, right? So if you weren't performing, that's what I loved about the Marine Corps, so I was trying to say, if you weren't, these were the expectations, and if you didn't live up to them, I'm sorry. And sometimes people don't like to hear that. I don't know. What are your thoughts on that? Oh, I agree. Now in the Marine Corps, the promotion process is a big filter. So if that's true, that's right. If you have a sergeant or a captain that really does an aspire to work hard and reach the next level, chances are he or she's not going to reach the next level. And so they a trip. If they do reach the next level, they're usually given a chance they don't do well, and then they.

I really, I'm excited to talk to you. But, you know, as much as I've admired you over the years, the idea that you're running to be governor of Texas is hugely exciting. So I really want to talk to you about that. I want to talk to you about yesterday and the January 6th, which my head's going to explode with anger at how the left has been portraying that in cooperation with the quote unquote mainstream media and the conservative media.

My older brother was a marine in Vietnam at the age of 15, my dad challenged me to be the first officer in the family because he and my older brother were both enlisted.

Who Is Marine and Journalist Julio Rosas?

"It's an individual who's been on the show before he is a dying breed. Not because he's a marine, but because he's a real journalist. Welcome to America first one on one hula rosas. Yeah, thank you for having me, doctor Burke. All right, so what we like to do at the beginning for those who may not be familiar with our new guests, although we've had the likes of president Trump at Al on the show, is there a little bit of an introduction? So for our millions of lists across the country, who is Julio, what's his background and how did he get to be a journalist and investigative reporter that town hall dot com? So I recently completed serving in the Marine Corps reserves. I got out in this man the active side of the reserves. But I dropped out of college actually after president Trump won in 2016 to become a journalist because I thought, well, the campaign was crazy. People's reaction to the campaign was crazy and now that he's won. It's even crazier. So this is kind of the moment to kind of get in while I can go without a degree. So what were you studying? What were you planning to study and what were your politics back then? So I knew I did want to go to D.C. and I did know that I wanted to get involved in politics. It's not exactly sure, but then I realized I really like writing. So I knew I wanted to get into media, but I was studying business administration just because I think it's a waste of time and money to get a degree in journalism. A young man. But no, but by then for sure I was definitely a conservative by then. And I was for a long time and actually I was the only political one active political one of my family. My family was never really involved in politics, although I can say that's changed. My mom she moved to California a couple years ago in Los Angeles County. And from where? I'm from Illinois. And what happened when she moved to California? So she was by no means a liberal, but she's let's just say she's against Newsom in the recall. Unfortunately, obviously it didn't work out so well. But she is actually moving away. That's what we're spending our last Christmas in Los Angeles because she's moving to Florida.

"And so what made me be a marriage coach now is because I would do these workshops to have people come back, you know, where are you now kind of thing and a lot of the couples would not be married still. And I'm like, what? What happened? Yeah, we're only married for like 6 months a year two years even. What happened in here? You know, and it was because they didn't really know each other or didn't really have any ongoing training after they got married. So for me, I was like, okay, I need to create something right here. Like a course or a workshop or something. So people know how to transition because it's also a transition from being single, being having this wedding and then actually being married. So I started that and then it would be more of that would be requested. And so I was like, well, I'm doing more over here. Coaching people, then I am doing weddings now. And so I ended up being at first I did the military Brad planner. And I was like, that sounds okay. But then I changed it, and, you know, I was like, so what do I actually do? I actually be strategy with these couple. So I was like, okay, I'm a strategist. So I changed it to the military Brad strategist. And the reason for that title is because I want the women because that's what I primarily deal with. Husbands will come eventually. But I deal with the women mostly. I want them to remember that they are the brat. Meaning I'll forget that room made a husband and now that. But it's a mindset thing with women because our brains operate different. So you're his forever bride. So that's basically what we're doing. So we're going to start there and we're going to work our way to wife. And that is the process I take them to, and I always try to help them envision what that looks like for them. So I'm the military bras strategist because of that. And I am branded because I'm Brandon in the way I am because I back it up with my expertise with my research and with my experience. And so I am the number one military marriage family and relationship coach because I do the marriage stuff, but I also teach you things you can do within your family dynamic because it does translate to all of these things. And every now and then we talk about other relationships in there. And every now and then I get people who are single who either desire to be married or desire to be in a relationship, a serious relationship of some kind. So I'm able to help them as well. So basically, all that to say, I train and equip these military couples families and singles and how to be mission ready and mission capable capable by creating resilience. And I teach them how to thrive at home and Internet in their career without sacrificing either or. Like, you can have this phenomenal career, but you can also have this phenomenal marriage and household dynamic. So that is what I did. I love that. It's so awesome. And I put all your links in the show notes so people can find you if they want to learn more information and your website's there. And so I'm really, I'm really glad that we got to have this conversation..

"I went to the doctors, they helped me explore all of that. And we talked about it. And they was like, yeah, I mean, you were pregnant. You had a baby. You are postpartum. You know, even though your baby's not here, you push them out. And I was, I was not early in my pregnancy. So I was at the halfway point. So for me, it was considered a delivery. So that was traumatic. And then being active duty was definitely hard because it's like they are mission driven. They're like, what's wrong with you? You ain't together. You still dwelling on this? Those were things people would say to me, and it's like, yes, yes, I'm still dwelling on this one because a whole two babies have died. In me, inside of me, and I still have to go into labor. So, like, that's not something that I can just kind of go back to after two weeks because that's all the time I got off, but that was the whole thing. And so I make it my business to make sure when I encounter someone who's still active duty or who's a veteran who's transitioning who's had that type of traumatic event happen. Make sure I allow them to space to talk about it. And if they want to cry, they can cry, you know? Because things like that, you really don't get enough time in the military to grieve. You really don't get enough time to process. Because you have to go back to work. You have to put on the strong face to make sure that the troops are taken care of. It's just life. I mean, it doesn't make it right. Don't mean it's great, but it's just what we have to do. Yeah, and the military is like mission focus. So once you get your two weeks and then it's like, all right, back to business and you're like, I'm not done processing this..

"Humvees, 7 tons or anything else. Let's talk about open contract because I think it's a really good point. And a lot of my listeners are women who are looking to join the military. So you join the Marine Corps and you said, at the end of boot camp, I'll do whatever you guys want me to do, essentially, right? Yes, but I didn't want to say that. Right, 'cause you didn't know. You didn't say that. That's just what not signing anything. That's what the brewing for her, you say, but you didn't know that you had the so crazy you didn't know that your recruiter didn't set you up for success. He didn't really set me up for failure either. He did help me because I was like, I gotta get out of here. So he gave me exactly what I wanted. But, you know, it's just like, okay, I'm learning, even in my young age at 18 to be very specific about what I want. Okay, I want to get out of here and then I want a job doing a swag and see. Didn't know what I wanted a job man because I'm pretty sure had I got the job and something close to what I'm doing now. I would have to be an officer and I would probably not be a marine because marines don't have like counselors as an MOS. I mean, if you were to tell me, I could have did legal, I would have been like, okay, I can go to school, you know, and I'll do legal or whatever. Apparently, even, which is really what legal clips are. And I did do that for a little while, so I was motivated, but I ended up in the admin shop, which I don't even know how I ended up there. I guess they just needed somebody to sell my name and was like, oh, let's pick her. So I was in there. I did that was a mailroom clerk. I was an admin clerk. I was a legal clerk. And I was like, this is too much. It's a lot. And as a legal clerk, you definitely see some crazy stuff that you would see in the legal field. And I was like, you know, I don't want to do that. What I want to be a lawyer? Absolutely. But some of those cases, some of those things is just like, I don't know how y'all make it without going to therapy. I don't have no idea. So, but I did a whole bunch of jobs. I was mams clerk, which is people who are ordering the parts for supply and motor tea, you know, and different different other MOS. And then I was supply admin for a while, which is the admin part of supply. So there's warehouse where you do an inventory second shells and all that then is the administrative people. And I did that. So my actual job was motor tea in my first four years, but I later lapped me. So after I was in motor T and I was like, so I'm either going to get out or I'm going to stay in. I thought I was going to get out. But my career planner definitely convinced me to stay in. And I was like, okay, so I laughed and I ended up being dispersing, which is finance, a finance technician in the Marine Corps. And because it's two sides of that, once a comptroller, where they deal with stuff for the Marine Corps, and then us people who deal with pay for troops. And it wasn't always marines. So if there was air force army, anybody attached to us, we dealt with their paycheck and dual military couples..

"Told her to break me down. So I can be built back up the right way. And I didn't know she did that. And I was like, how she find out what she listens? At the door. And so I was in the fleet by this time and the first church I went to the pasta happened to be a marine, and he was talking about boot camp and he was somebody his time as a drill instructor. Same scenario, but it was gas. He said this guy, tell him that because he was the senior at this time. Tell him that he couldn't do this. And he was ready to check this, basically. And he told his drill instructor, make sure you kill him out there. Make sure you break him down. And I was like, that's what y'all do? And he was like, yeah, I was like, I'm about to find my senior drilling ship and tell her about herself. You know, I knew she was. She was stationed where I was stationed. So I was like, this is messed up. Here I am thinking I could trust you when it's really a lie. I can not trust you. You stabbed me in the back. And I was like, I never felt so betrayed. And she didn't do it as a malicious thing. She did it to help me obviously. And it worked. I remember that like it was yesterday and I will always remember that it's something like, oh my goodness. One, be careful what you're telling these journalist strep is out here and boot camp and then two. Okay, it was something that benefited me in the long run. Yeah, it was really hard, but it benefited you. Right. When you finish basic, and then do you go to your first assignment or do you go to what we would call tech school or how does that all work? So it's boot camp, MCT, and then MOS school..

"And what we can get out of something. And it can it can come off a little selfish, but he's talked to me about what I can give it things. I can implement things I could change. And I was just like, wow, that sounds great. Now I didn't do any of it. Really. But I feel like I didn't do any of it. I know I was a part of the whole process of the hair changes for the Marine Corps. So I am proud of that. But I wasn't the lead on that. I just helped a friend who was the lead on that. So I'm very proud and very thankful of that. But that was literally right before I was getting out, which I tried to look back and see if I did anything. And then there was that. And I did do a lot of things that I was able to fulfill a lot of goals of living overseas, you know, and doing martial arts, which I probably want to do in martial arts just being a college student, probably wouldn't have even been interested. You know, I did CrossFit. I did a lot of stuff, so I had a lot of opportunities. Obviously, I made rank. So I wasn't like the same rank throughout the entire almost 8 years. I was in. And I was able to have several different jobs. Some of the jobs I didn't want because you know it's the meats and the military. I feel like I was able to give a lot but because he did talk to me about how I can help other troops, which I know I did. And that's kind of why I'm doing the job that I'm doing now is because it's like the mission continues. And I say he was able to help me take my self centeredness out of it and say, this is how you can help troops. This is how you can help the institution as a whole. So you really like the idea of being able to help other people. And that's what drew you to the military, and that's true to what you're doing today..

Wow, okay, so just growing up, I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. It wasn't the best of situations, so I was like, in the back of my mind thinking, I got to get out of here. I have to add, I don't know how I'm going to get out of here, but I have to get out of here. So I applied to, you know, several colleges and I got accepted. There was one in D.C. that I really wanted to go to. I really wanted to go to Howard and my family wanted me to be close, and I'm like, no. I have to get out of here. And it just so happened that there was a marine recruiter walking in the hallways one day, and he had on dress blues, and I was like, what kind of uniform is that? 'cause I was in army Gerald TC, so I knew what there uniforms looked like, had never really looked into any other branch thought I was going to go to the army.

"Eighth marines were served as a position commander and squad leader and i led thirteen marines in one korman of the seven month appointment and during that time on a foot patrol there was a rocket-propelled-grenade the wounded myself and another marine knocked me unconscious right. Right in the middle of a firefight want to have to be medically evacuated and ultimately led to my medical retirement. Eighteen months later Well but in a sense. I mean one of the insights that you your reporting has given people and again we've got links to all of it on point radio dot. Org is that robert hogue as a top level civil service civil servant in the marines actually had in a sense an impact on your career thomas in the marine corps even in Regarding things like body armor for for marines who were serving in afghanistan and iraq. Can you tell us a little bit about that shirt. So a lot of the efforts that he made for the improved vehicle armor and improved body armor i directly benefited from We were putting that stuff on vehicles before we went into flew back in two thousand and four traded in my training salaries for training plates of for actual armored plates. That that would work During my time in iraq so he he had a real tangible impact on my career both through the geared equipment as well as the the cultural changes that impacted the marines surplus which will talk about so robert hug. W- for for the many people who actually do not know with any depth sort of the structure of the civilian side of civilian service in the marine corps. What is the. What does the council to the commandant do council for the commandant in my tenure is is the senior civilian serving with reporting record obviously a hierarchically structured organization. It's it's about command and control for obvious reasons. It's a military organization rinker doesn't Doesn't have a huge number civilian something like twenty five thousand for force of roughly one hundred eighty five thousand now down almost two hundred and eighty thousand but the survey ins provide the corporate continuity the corporate knowledge and bring in a lot of the expertise that keeps things functioning that That typical marine unit can't so for example. You run a training range. Well you hire so many that because marines will come and go they they rotate out the typical torres for years units rotate out units rotate. In obviously leaving it to the unit to run a training range does not provide a sustainable. Solution of civilians are also deeply involved in acquisition and financing and essentially a personnel manager. Those sorts of things that look like corporate functions are largely laid off to civilian staff and browse about twenty three or four senior executives. They manage very large chunks of the corporation. If you will counsel for the commandant is the lead senior executive who helps manage that civilian executive cadre as well as the twenty five thousand civilians and helps run the corporate functions or the marine corps. So he's a member of the senior leadership teams right. So so you're you're at the common onside essentially completely when you were a kid. Is this the kind of thing. Is this the kind of thing that you said. Hey when i grow up. I wanna be the top level civilian in the marine corps. Nobody off the job growth. And then when i was a kid i was going to grow up to be a basketball star. Football starving turns out even in college. You know those organizations have ridiculously high requirements. Are things like talent you know so but when it was offered to me Actually turn it down so it's a hard job. It's a big job is just one of those things where you just have to know this about the marine corps. It's a twenty four. Seven is your marine this. You're a senior civilian. Serving with the marines is not a job. It's all the time thing. The phone goes off in the middle of the night. People call from iraq from korea they from wherever and wherever the commodores if he has questions or needs help. You're there for the commodore and many times out with a confidante so it's a big demand in it's tough on a family. I was not anxious to take this job. I i kind of. Hey before. I'm done with my career. I'd like a shot at that but it was offered to me. It was offered to be essentially two thousand four and i interviewed with the comment on. He asked me why one of the job. And i told him i. Didn't i think for the first time he looked up from his question she eaten and realized there was a human in front of him and really took me in that moment and when it was over i went back to my office. I was working for the control of the navy then at night. I thought you know kind of dust it that often. Well i that well and then little while eight of the phone rang and it was a comment. Operation center makes all of his calls more more or less than they said standby for the common. I stood up. What else do you do And general hagi. Pick up the phone and say bob yet. You said you're the guy hung up. I guess i can't really say no to that. Well look there's through thomas's reporting of your story it becomes. It's clear though that there's a long history in your family of actually seeking out ways to contribute and serve the nation out even well outside of a military service. So i wanna play a little bit more from the interviews that you did with thomas in key positions around washington. We heard a little bit of your conversation with him from the pentagon before But you also walked around the national museum of the marine corps near marine base quantico in virginia and while there you told him about your childhood in arlington virginia just a few miles from the pentagon. So my my family was very catholic. Family seven kids. You know all in catholic schools. My parents didn't have much money but what they had. They spent on those schools because they they were very good schools and they believe deeply in that catholic education and you were coming of age during the national push for civil rights and in elementary school. The district where your family live began the process of de segregation. Which of course involved bussing and what happened was most of.

"And that launched a very long meeting. But also what i would describe as at least from the department of the navy Beginning of the planning of the war. And it's there's a lot to that which i won't go into but essentially it's where are people who are casualties. Look like that's fine. We have to take a toll now. Where are people out in the field who we have is available that can steam to place. Go to that sort of thing. Yeah well let me just step in here. For a second. And turn back to thomas brennan because thomas in your reporting you also tell a story of another thing that happened on that september twelfth the day after nine eleven and it and it has to do with the marine corps flag. Who just got about a minute and a half before. I break here thomas but could you tell us that story briefly an end as a former marine yourself why. That moment is particularly important. In terms of what happened on september twelfth after the building collapsed where mr holmes office was. There was a marine corps flag. That was still standing and what. We're really speaks to me about that moment. Was that a civilian. Who volunteered of when he witnessed the klein strike and an army soldier were the ones who rescued a marine corps flag. It wasn't about service rivalry. They just recognize that it was military flag was about the fall into the fire and they saw the symbolism and that so those gentlemen and whoever else helped them rescued that flag and it began its own journey to outer space and ultimately the marine corps. Museum in quantico. Well mr we've got thirty seconds before the break before we move forward in terms of what you witnessed an an and how marine corps changed over the next twenty years. I just want you to you. Were injured on that day on nine eleven. So i mean can you describe a couple seconds of how you coped on nine. Twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen the next week or so the the summary is not. Well you know had had a brain injury and eardrums blown out. I was completely deafened on one side and that remains to this day and significant hair house on it. But but that's just one of those things you buckley chinstrap because it's common and that's what we did on september twelfth. Well today. we're talking with robert. Hogue and thomas brennan. Thomas is the founder of the nonprofit journalism organization. The warhorse and robert hoge.

"On point. I'm meghna chakrabarti dominating. The picture is there's this weird rolling cloud up the face of the stone and that is that's exactly what it is. It's it's the blast. It's the flame from the blast and it rolled up the front of at least for my vans rolled up the front of the building like like a dryer tumbling. You know and i was just a very peculiar thing. It's not yet in color for me. But as i'm looking at it. I start to become aware of colors. Black and orange again my systems coming back online a little bit. At a time. I start to pick myself up and then it's the office now starting to break apart cutting half on september eleventh two thousand one robert hogue was celebrating his first anniversary as a senior executive service employees for the united states military members of the work in key positions just below top presidential appointees hogue was in his office at the pentagon. That office was just above. Where american airlines flight. Seventy seven struck the massive building on nine eleven hogan three office mates were trapped in the partially collapsed building corp. tim garafolo managed to wrench open the door to the hallway and they all squeezed through hogue heard someone through the smoke. A voice saying there was a way out but also that there were at least six offices between their position and the way out with people possibly still inside. We can't just run every part of my body and mind screaming run. You know because if just fire it's a collapse it's a shooting gallery but somewhere inside you just know you if you don't look inside those offices and see if there's anybody survived in there it'd be very tough to live with yourself. Hugs officemate corp. Garafolo ran in and saved at least two lives people that were still trapped. Everyone piled into hugs car and he drove away. Smoke in the rear view mirror hogan eventually got home hugged his wife and daughter and saw his son just twelve years old at the time. His son was stunned. And that is when reality set in twenty years later. Robert hogue told that story that recorded interview. You just heard to thomas. Brennan a marine corps veteran himself and an award winning journalist. Thomas is the founder of the warhorse which covers the human impact of military service and he joins us now. Thomas welcome to on point. Thank you for having me. And we have Thomas is complete reporting on the story of robert hogue linked to it at our website on point radio dot org But right now. Robert hogue joins us as well because he continued serving at one of the highest civilian levels of the united states marine corps and he just wrapped up a seventeen year stint as counsel for the commandant of the us marines and during that time he seen the core through some of its most radical changes. Not just the post nine eleven period not just afghanistan and iraq but internal changes to the core itself regarding who gets to serve and fight on behalf of the nation and he's here to share that twenty year arc with us today and joins us from that very same office. He was in in the pentagon on nine eleven. Robert hogue welcome to you. Thank you for having me. I actually want to start with thomas. If i could for a moment. What is it about. Robert hogan his story that you felt was particularly important for the nation to hear right now twenty years after nine eleven. I think that his service His continue calling the serve after nine. Eleven on behalf of our country is is something that is just always stunning and far too often the civil servants that serve alongside servicemembers In the defense department. Go unrecognized And you know one thing that's just been incredible for me to be able to see both marine and as a journalist is is how the marine corps embraced a a civilian mike him was completely unexpected of based on my experiences of marine and he's emblematic of countless other civil servants that do incredible on behalf of our country every day and a story. Like you said. That's not told often enough so mr hug. Let me turn to you first of all. Thank you for being a in that same office today to talk with us. I know it can't be easy even two decades later. What's it like to to be in there Strange actually. I really can't describe in the one thing about it is it does kind of hold you or at least one part of you in that time period. So it's you're stuck in a moment in two thousand one regardless of what year day it is but also you have to recognize. It's a news legal office and there is this your everyday and they you know there's a good staff and a lot of work to do and whatever else holds me back to two thousand one. We have definitely forged ahead. Well obviously that day was absolutely horrific. We don't actually need to go over the details of more than we already have. So instead mr hogue. I'd like to ask you. You went back to work the next day on september twelfth. What happened that day. September twelfth is to me a much more interesting topic than september. eleventh september. eleventh is is really kind of a loss time experience a catastrophe and all the craziness that surrounds an event of that magnitude. And you really for a while. When you're in the middle of that you're just a consumer of information trying to react trying to save your life trying to save others and do the best you can. September twelfth is is more about about getting it together figuring out how to respond organizing the response and thinking through the problem of okay. Here we are. That happened here. We are how we start to step forward and for me. September twelfth starts out with a very early morning drive to the pentagon. I received night the call the night before. A call from the marine corps operations center essentially telling me to to come to the pentagon for six. Am meeting with common on. There was no place to go really mean my offices in the pit where the fire was an pointed still burning. The senior staff met outside that the the impact area and we made the decision. I say we I'm a senior civilian on the comment on staff. You don't where the common goes. That's where i go comment on me decision. We're going to go up the hill to the navy annex where the marine corps had offices and frankly were headquarters marine corps had for many years actually been It only move down of the pentagon i think in nineteen ninety six so are a lot of history up there from marine corps at a lot of things about the navy annex actually reflect the marine corps very well old crappy building leaky windows and bad plumbing. So that's the place we went and about want to say about seventy. Am when once we had moved their intended to the a six am meeting but it just because of the movement of people on such a gathering of staff. We all packed into a conference room. There in the annex very large conference room packed the doors with Senior military and civilians are waiting for the common app. Come in and we have been told that the cnn it'd be there as well so a lot of navy presence. There in the navy had been hit directly on september eleventh plane. The navy operation center was on the first floor and they take direct directed and we knew that they were going to be some bad numbers When reporting came in. I had not seen it. I don't think anybody had any idea with real numbers were but we knew it was bad so seven. Am that's hanging in the air The expectation of bad news and the bad news now. So now am the chief of naval operations. The cnn and accommodate come into the room and it has the sort of gathering storm called into it. I mean you can just feel it and the walks to the head of the table and you more or less hammers folio in into the table and says i wanna know. Who did this. Know what we're gonna do about it..

"At his the dark secret place. Brian suits in here until eleven o'clock and a local dark secret place note arly, Ernie the gunny as you may know from full metal jacket, his legendary role as gunnery certain Hartman, the drill instructor which launched his film career that he went on. He was the my favorite scene is in the movie seven where he's the chief detective did voice work than he did mail. Call of course on the military channel. I think it was the history channel, but he did mail call, and then some other things, and he was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery just yesterday and the attendant at his graveside was the Commodore Marine Corps, and the sergeant major of the Marine Corps as well. As the twelfth sergeant major of the Marine Corps, the Marine Corps taking it very seriously to honor Landcare Palmdale zone arly army, and I. Tweeted out the Marine Corps tribute, which is a minute long video, which was very very nice, very cool, the Marine Corps. And and you understand it takes a lot for me to say that. So so salute very cool to the marines. Very cool is what I said. And so if you follow me, a dart secret place, you can see that. But it was a a great ceremony. And he was he was part owner of bravery brewing in Lancaster. And so he was toasted at graveside the the the way that he he probably would have wanted. So very very solemn and lovely ceremony very very respectful ceremony by the Marine Corps for one of their own a drill team or rather a firing not firing squad. A graveside salute from the Marine Corps barracks. At eight tonight. The oldest bring corps facility. In the world was provided. So neat little video by the Marine Corps that they put out on that a lot of people signed up because of him. Yeah. Just just watching the go. That's what makes the deal was that a lot of young marines at twenty nine palms and things before they deployed if they could make a pilgrimage up to Lancaster this. This is a very very common anecdote up there. They would come to bravery brewing and say our deploying in a week, or we're deploying in two days, we just want to come to the gun. He's place and have a beer and his partner. The Kohner would call him at home and say, hey, there's some rains that are deploying deaf ghanistan in two days. They wanna have a beer with you. And he would drop whatever he was doing and Kemba brewery and sit down and have a beer with these guys his his the uniform that he used in full metal jacket is on display, oh physically in there and the actual one for the movie, and so guys would take pictures with him and all that. And he was he was very reverential towards. The young men, especially the infantry guys that were going there early army was not a ground combat, and he was he was a air when he was a Marine Corps air wing supply guy. But he did work. He did a tour drill instructors. So when you're seeing him in that movie that ain't acting right? But he was he was hired as a technical adviser. He did so much better than the actor that they hired Kubrick said, right? You're in a different part. You ernie. You're gonna be gunnery sergeant Hartman. So so that that icon ick role that was his first screen role. Yeah. Well, he had he was in a brief part in the pockets now and some other things, but just sort of brief brief parts, but this this he had he had gone back to Washington was working in a logging mill. A mill paper mill when when someone called him and said, hey, this movies being made you need to come down and teach the guy had to be a drill instructor. So that's that's how he did that well a young man from Canada a couple of years ago decided that a really excellent life choice would be to drop everything that he hadn't Canada as a refugee from Somalia and go ahead and join ISIS in Syria somehow he survived until about a week ago while he's still surviving. Apparently he was captured. He's one of the final guys that we're we're holding out for mice and the defence forces with American leadership advisors sat him down and began quizzing him about who he is and his experience with ISIS. Here's here's a little bit of a play the some of the key parts next hour restock it about the end of the campaign. But this is this guy talking about how he. Got to ISIS from from Canada. Came from Canada. To syria. Twenty was.
