"It's because they're driven by service and the concept of y you know is very much a service it's it's very much a service orientation. You know you are never the center of your Y. It's always it's always someone else. It's always for the benefit of others, and so they absolutely resonated with it. I sort of fell in love with them I sort of. I think they're one of the most misunderstood cultures out there you know people think the military is what they see in the movies that sort of like people, screaming and yelling and sort of command and control, and you know, and there are elements of that when necessary and it's usually under extremely stressful situations like in combat, but there's so much empathy and so much love you know you talk to marines and say what makes the Marine Corps so great? They tell you love. Remember you and I have colleagues and Co workers. They have brothers and sisters share. I've hugged more people in uniform than I've ever had. I've cried with more people in uniform that have ever cried within suits and I've sat in a briefing listening to a general give. Give briefing and sat there and cried I've never cried. When a CEO gave a speech, ever sure, and so there's much more humanity because their job is existential. Their job is about life and death, and so you find these remarkable relationships, and this remarkably empathetic form of leadership that is much rarer to find in the business world. In fact, you only find it at the best led companies, the best led companies and the best lead. Military units.

An Ex-Marine's Journey Of Healing And Unraveling The Mysteries Of The Mind With David Richards

"Richards David Richards, is a business professional life coach Yoga instructor and. and Speaker on self development. He spent his early childhood living in various parts of the United States and three years living on the island of Okinawa Okinawa Japan after graduating university with a degree in English he was commissioned and officer in the Marines. He served fifteen years active duty before deciding to break out from the bought that his father and brother at followed in making the military. Career and left the Marines to pursue a life as a civilian, he joined Cisco Systems in two thousand six and shortly thereafter discovered yoga. Don't do it insightful and sometimes silly. It blends elements of Yoga with quantum physics to bring the esoteric together with the practical for eight, truly unique perspective of how the mind works in greeting easily understood self development plans that create lasting change for a more fulfilling life so. These are some clues or hints into our. We might be speaking about today. David really great to have you on our show, and are you ready to inspire? So, glad to be here. Thank you for the introduction. Absolutely a registered with your audience stories and things that have worked things that haven't worked, but the the growth that the journey of life is so absolutely wonderful, so I start. Let's talk about your child to begin with. What was it like growing up in your house or in your home? Yeah, it's. We had a loving very loving nurturing environment. And everybody grows up with their sense of normal, and so for me. My sense of normal was we moved every two to three years. And? What I didn't realize was a lot of that created. Beliefs in me. Just, really long relationships you a one day. You might best friends and the next day I'm moving because. I'd I'd got orders to a new duty station. And so this is certainly before the age of the Internet. And on facebook and chatting and texting, and so our French just stopped But it was great to you know on the on the flip side. It was great to see different parts of the country and early age great certainly live in Japan for for three years now got to South Korea got the Philippines there, and and just being exposed to different parts of the world at that age had tremendous impact that still with me. Today got it. So that moving know that having a friend and losing the friend because you're moving to another city are part of the country. What sort of impacted that have on you in retrospect because I remember. When I was a kid, it happened the other way for me. 'cause I used to have a friend, and then he would move to a different city. Burns would get relocated and deep down. I felt that I could. Could never have a longtime friend. I always wanted to have that best friend as kids. We WanNa feel accepted. We want to have that friendship. You want to feel that you love as a property, but the fact that every time I made a friend, either he would move to a different city or I would move schools and I. Don't know I'm still discovering how that has me long, but how did that? You, don't affect you. Know for sure it really did. It created to beliefs that I took with me into my adult life, and so one of those. Relationships end and so. I just didn't fully appreciate the currency of a rich relationship in rich friendship, and what that meant and certainly had some. as I went you know as I grew up in I still remember this guy comes to mind Jason. Who is my best friend? When we lived through Japan, we stayed touch for years afterwards when his family moved to Virginia, moved North Carolina. But I just didn't appreciate that keeping someone in having a lifelong friend. was really something that I could have and. So that was one belief that just friendships and relationships ended I started carried. You know I've got great friends from high school still. is a long time, but the other believe really that it created was. When it came to romantic relationships, and so, if you have this dynamic that in some cases, relationships end well when it comes to romance, and you almost of have to go all in because you're trying to shore up this relationship before you get to the point where it's GonNa end. And so I became super romantic. I became a really romantic person. I wrote poems. I think when. Other people? In certainly later part of high school into college, discovering physical intimacy I was still kind of looking at romantic. But that you know those those two beliefs I really took with me through big part, my dot life, too I think was only through. Kenner the last you know five or six years that I really awoke to them and realized the power they'd have of me and was able to let them go. Thanks Norfolk shedding. It's interesting how one incident or two incidents. Are you know these things that happen to ourselves? Student Avenue Affect Different aspects of our life, even as we're adults, and only when we sort of. DIG The dive to shine the light on those parts of is which are now in the dock realize. Wow, that that did affect me right, so thanks a lot for sharing now your father and your brother will vote Marines right so what ruled deeply as you're growing up in your decisions, especially as far as the Yeah, you know it's it's funny. It was very creative growing up and I think that was part of the. Reality of not having consistent friend that I went from Grade School. All the way up to high school with I got really creative, so I wrote. I I drew I was very artistic. And in high school actually got something published You know a piece of A. Short story published honorable mention in a magazine nationally. I just thought that everybody can do that I just I didn't realize that it was. The writing was something that I just excel that a little bit so? When it came time to look at life after high school I remember my my dad's down. He said listen. You will pay for part of you're going to pay for the other half and. Get naked scholarship that's great. If not you might look at ROTC and join the military and. I guess one of the beliefs that I I grew up with it mentioned. Was I learned to hate the marine? Corps Because I blame them for always moving around and so. I thought. Okay, if I have to do military scholarship. I'm going to do that, but I'm not going to join the marines because no and. And so and there wasn't any you know. My Dad didn't push me. My brother was kind of going down that path as well. And I got into college and I was going to go into the. and. So every semester when you do ROTC program. You have to do a class for ROTC. And, so the class is like naval weapons system, so it's Kinda like missiles and stuff. It's really cool and second semester. Its naval like engineering like the actual ships engineering, and my mind is a liberal arts mind, and so I started him mechanical engineering just GonNa blacked out. Going to be good. I get to the grains. And so, that's kind of the pathway that took me down. That was you know I know the Maria familiar with them I grew up in the Marine Corps and so that was the path I decided to say.

"She'd get rex back. In the meantime she'd visit frequently. But six year old rex had another frequent visitor Mike dowling his first handler after his honorable discharge Mike also vowed to adopt rex. For Years Mike and Meghan didn't cross paths. They'd served in the same role in the same area with the same dog, but timing kept them apart. Each made separate visits to Camp Pendleton but drew the same conclusion. None of the new handlers with bonding with REX. Rex was assigned to a different corporal after Megan. Then another and another. But with each handler, he was a tool for practice a dog they trained with, but not the dog they went to war with. Its in the military. It didn't matter if rex was completely happy or loved, he was a military working dog emphasis on working. Over five years, rex shuffled through twelve different handlers. None of them were with him as long as Michael Meghan. Rex To nine ten eleven. Mike began working in the film industry. Meghan adopted a cat. Then in two thousand and eleven. REX had a seizure. He survived, but it left him with facial palsy. He'd no longer be able to smell explosives. A soon. As Meghan heard, she was terrified. REX would likely be euthanized and she might even get to say goodbye. Crying, she reached out to Jerry Vanillin director of the local Veterans Service Agency. All Megan wanted was for her friend to have the happiness and love, he deserved. Rex. Couldn't put down. Jerry comforted Megan and then hatched a plan. He had a contact in New York Senator Chuck Schumer's Office. Jerry and Meghan put together a packet for the senator. Urging him to help reunites the military heroes. The also started a local petition. Cross the country in southern California Mike dowling also heard of REX's injury albeit in a very different way. As REX's first handler Mike was offered the chance to care for him in his old age. Not that it would be that easy. REX deemed not adoptable, and Mike would have to take necessary measures both to protect wrecks and protect civilians from rex. It might take a year or more to complete the paperwork and logistics. Even then they might be rejected. Meaning Rex could still be put down. But to start the process, the Marine Corps simply needed a yes. US earlier, it would have been a no brainer of course Mike wanted to adopt her ex. He loved the dog he still did. It was worth any amount of effort to give rex retirement. He deserved. Still. Mike had recently heard about Meghan Levi's petition to adopt rex. It had almost twenty two thousand signatures. Though Mike had come out of Iraq unscathed. He'd worked with wounded warriors. He'd found his passion in helping. Veterans create meaningful lives after their service ended. Mike realized the potential adoption was an opportunity to help rex and make good on his promise. But it was also an opportunity to help another vet Meghan. So, he said No. Mike said the Marine Corps should let Megan. Levy adopt racks. And they should do it soon. Sometimes, the dogs we love only hours for short time. That doesn't make them any less special. Mike dowling likely realize that and certainly realized that Meghan needed rex more than he did. And now Mike had a new caused to dedicate himself to. Reuniting BREX and Meghan. Mike wrote to Chuck Schumer, imploring the senator to speed up the process, and while letters and petitions cruel through the government, they ran through the media. Meghan and REX became a popular human interest story. Why would anyone keep a wounded veteran from wounded military dog? Soon even the New York. Yankees were involved Meghan was a lifelong fan and now worked security for the organization. The president of the Yankees Randy Levine pledged pay for rex to fly first class from Camp Pendleton to Megan's home in New York. In? DC Senator Schumer was moved by the letters, the petition and the press coverage. He used his power to try to facilitate a speedier of unusual adoption. On April six two thousand twelve eleven year old wrecks officially retired from the Marine Corps. Mike and Meghan both attended the ceremony at Camp Pendleton. REX's final on a citation, not ten years of service, including eleven thousand, five hundred and seventy five hours in the US and three tours of duty in Iraq. While, they're rex was constantly put in harm's way during multiple firefights, motorist hacks and improvised explosive devices. The citation and did. Rex's enthusiasm initiative and loyal devotion to duty reflected great credit upon himself, and were in keeping with the finest traditions of the Marine Corps. Best of all as he retired, REX's status was reversed. He was approved for an adoption. The next day, rex and Meghan flew first class to Megan's home in valley. Cottage New York. It was five thousand miles from. Volusia but REX still had his share of exciting adventures. Rex loved balking at the local deer and got to play in snow for the first time he spent time in Megan's kitchen and became extremely. In cooking. He even met his first cat another one of Megan's pets. I rex try to chase the cat. But, when it batted him on the face, rex realized it was better off leaving that particular animal alone. As, it turned out. Some things were more dangerous than sniffing out I e DS. And every night at the end of a long day of running and playing rex cuddled up to sleep and Megan's bed. Six weeks after their reunion on May. Thirteenth Two Thousand Twelve Meghan put wrecks on his six foot, leash, and watched as he sniff through a new and different kind of dust the infield TIFF Yankee Stadium. The stadium erupted with noise, but it was just the raucous cheers of Game Day, crowd followed by an aftershock of life type music. Star third baseman. Alex Rodriguez joined Megan and wrecks on the field. The Yankees wanted to honor the pair for their service. Rex was muzzled as he had to be when they left the house, but it didn't prevent him from unleashing a few excited Fox at a Rod. Apparently, some fans thought he was proposing to a girlfriend.

"Get started go. Daddy is offering websites, marketing tools and guidance offer free learn more at go daddy dot com now back to the story. From March to September of two thousand four Corporal Mike, dowling and Sajjan rex served in explosives detection operations in Iraq's triangle of death. Upon their. Return Home Mike was honorably discharged from the marines. He was proud of his work. He done his duty and didn't fancy risking his life again especially after his lucky escape from an Iep de on his final day in Iraq. However his partner sergeant. Rex didn't have any choice. Military working dogs typically serve for about eight years, and after his time with Mike, rex had around six years left. Mike could always known this, but it didn't stop him from planning to adopt rex when his military career ended. He bonded with this special dog more than he thought possible and couldn't wait to spend every day with him again. Mike said he knew rex in a way. He might never know fellow human being. Rex's started his life with Mike and Mike wanted them to finish together to. In the meantime Mike joined the reserves making a point to visit wrecks and Pendleton Canine kennels whenever he got the chance. He was confident he'd get rex back someday. But before that could happen, rex was assigned a new handler. Corporal Meghan Levy. Meghan had always had a dog. She was an only child, so they were the closest thing she had. Two Siblings Megan also loved being part of a team evidenced by years of playing competitive softball. One month into Megan's college career, nine eleven shattered the nation. Around this time Megan realized she wasn't cut out for college life and needed something she. Couldn't quit. Soon after she turned eighteen, Meghan walked into a military recruiting office where the recruiters fawned over her. Main didn't think she was anything special, but she was a woman and they had a quotes it to meet. Once Meghan confirm that she wouldn't have to cut her long hair. She enlisted. Megan Levy was Orlan. She traveled to Paris. Island South Carolina the sole training grounds for female marines. They're Megan. Learn that in the military? You always need a partner. Recruits couldn't do anything without the buddy. Even go to the bathroom. Megan's soon realized exactly what kind of partners she wanted a canine. There was just one catch. Megan had to wait for an available dog. Will Train. Dogs were few and hard to come by. It costs about fifty thousand dollars to train 'em, wd or military working dog, and even then adult had to maintain a ninety five percents such accuracy to remain certified and cleared missions. So Meghan waited. And waited. Seven months later, she was finally dispatched to Camp Pendleton and introduced to rex. Megan had waited through REX's entire first tour of duty for him, and she couldn't be happier to finally meet her dog. Of course, Sergeant Rex was still rex. He was a weapon stubborn. The kind of talk bites any stranger. Who tried to pet him. Megan likely to do a couple alpha roles to gain REX's respect, and she certainly received a few nips before he bonded with her. But oft four months rex. Meghan, we're a functional team. They shipped off to future in early two thousand five. Meghan wasn't sure what to expect. It had barely been six months since rex finished his first tour, and the Marines was still gathering preliminary Intel. But Meghan did know they'd be targets. The Iraqi insurgents had realized military dogs for a major threat and now aims their guns accordingly. But. Meghan was again all in. Before long she helped rex find I bomb. From, their homework went much like Mike's. Meghan would take rex ahead if the unit on his six foot leash while fellow marines watched her back. She'd keep her eyes focused on the dog primed for the tiniest change or motion. REX would give a flip of his tail. A big sniff a look back. The explosive. Ordinance Disposal Team called the E. OD would pull out the or explosives cash. Then rex got to play with his ball. Walk Signal. E. O. D. I. E. D. Full. Sniff tense up. He owed E. R. E. D.. Full step point. D. I. E. D. Bull over and over each time a success. Megan and rex were so good. They went on a second deployment this time to Ramadi another city in Iraq. Megan grew to love rex, not just as her partner in the field, but as her partner socially. Meghan said REX was a great icebreaker for her especially as they worked with different units. She later said she never personally experienced the sexism that so prevalent in the military. Perhaps that was because if anything, a person with the dog is treated better than a person alone and if anyone tried to mess with Meghan they'd risk a bite from rex. And Bite he did. Unlike Mike Megan let people pet rex. She figured they learned their lesson quickly. Rex hadn't changed, but the Marines apparently found his mean streak in deering. And as the woman, the mean dog loved Meghan quickly gained the respect of her tough guy, peers. She also earned their respect by saving lives. Together Megan and rex completed over a hundred successful missions. They planned another on September fourth two thousand six during this second in Ramadi. A new army units had just arrived in. Iraq and we're eager to have a canine units. Join them for an upcoming patrol. They requested to dog teams, but unfortunately that just wants enough available. The military would only allocate one team for the mission. Given that it was a green team of recruits, and the Meghan was the most senior of the two handlers she volunteered. She knew her experience could help everyone. Alongside the squadron, Meghan and REX set out into the heat in early September. The temperature in Iraq could hit over a hundred degrees Fahrenheit. It was an unexplored area, but rex searched with relish. Found one boom another two more each buried deep in desert sand, ready to destroy a passing vehicle at the first ring of an insurgents phone. Five hours passed and they were on a.

"And REX led the charge. Entering would appear to be a bedroom. REX paused tales stiffening. He lifted his head to snort. Then resume sniffing, taking faster bigger breaths pulling in more sense. Mike, new this so-called change in behavior signal. That rex had found something. Rex wriggled under the bed. Mike's Pulse race does he observed his dog? The other Marines of the room halted fixed on. Rexes let tail. Rex, slipped out clutching something, lodge and round in his teeth. Wrecks and Mike both grew excited. They done it. They found a bomb. They'd saved lives. Rex Turn to Mike and displayed his find. It was a soccer ball. The Marines had misjudged. This home was just a home. Rex's excitement was just that of finding a toy, proving even the best trained military working dogs. It's still fun loving animals that heart. A few days later Mike and rex return to I e E. D, Alley! Everyone was still convinced. That was a hidden stash of explosives in the area. If they could uncover the cash of Aidi components, they stop the insurgents for at least a few weeks, possibly saving thousands of lives. This time they headed away from civilization. Rex Sniff through open desert past baking sanding crackling brush. The afternoon heats was rising close to one hundred thirty degrees Fahrenheit. As they search the area Mike began to worry for REX's safety. Dogs can only sweat through their tongues than the pads on their feet. If X didn't enough to release the sweat from his mouth. His tongue would swell up. He choke before he died of heatstroke. So Mike. To give rex frequent water breaks. When rex finished lapping up water, Mike called out the command. Seek seek seek. On Q.

"And two Corporal Mike. dowling prepared to tackle his superior officer. Mike had been well trained boot camp, military police crosses and military working dog school all led to this moment. He was meeting his dog. Sancho rex for the first time. Out of respect, full military working talks are awarded a rank up the handlers, but rex didn't look like a high pay great sergeant. He looked like a German shepherd taking a nap. A very dangerous gem shepherd, taking a nap. Mike entered REX's gated. Kennel and the dogs is flicked open. His hackles raised a sign of fear or hostility. Mike may have been on a military base in southern California, but he knew that wouldn't protect him from an attack. His training run through his head. It's not a matter of if you'll get bitten by a dog, but when? Mike knew what he had to do. A military maneuver called the Alpha Roll. Like a cowboy, taming a Bronco Mike carried a leather collar and leash toward the loose star clasped the caller around REX's neck. Rex growled biting tone domes and Desert Camo Mike narrowly evaded REX's jaws as he firmed his grip on the color and flipped seventy pounds of German shepherd right over. Rex minds have been a military asset worth thousands of dollars, but at that moment Mike had no fear of breaking in. Mike pinned rex down trying to keep his face and neck away from the dog snapping jaws. He got one hand on Rex's face, forcing his head down while he welcomed the leash around Rex's Maul. The dog couldn't fight. He couldn't bog. He scratched and wind. Still top REX. Mike shoved his own face in the dogs and screened a command. He'd learned in training out out out. Mike rose watching the dog carefully. How would he react now? Rex Lunged for another bite Mike pinned him again, executing another Alpha role to establish. Out Out out. Mike stood again panting alongside the dog. Rex went for another nip and Mike had him on the ground once more, they locked eyes each determined to be the Alpha Dog. Finally. Rex added. He wouldn't fight. From then on? They be best friends. That same November week wrecks and Mike began drills as a team preparing side-by-side military career, while the dogs were trained to protect and attack them. Main role was to sniff out danger in the form of explosives. Rex and his fellow canine sergeants nicknamed weapons of mass detection. Thanks to the central regions in the dog sprains, which have forty times larger than humans. As they trained Mike, expected he and rex would stay in the US performing counter terrorism operations. He figured his most exciting assignment would be working alongside the secret service and seeing President George. W Bush from a distance. Canine units that's letter K. number nine hadn't been sent to the frontline since Vietnam nearly thirty years prior. But one year into their training, it became apparent Operation Iraqi. Freedom was mainly the over sure in a lengthy war. And Rex and Mike had a pivotal role to play. In November, two thousand, three, Mike and REX Scott word from their superiors, they'd be among the first twelve dog teams deployed to Iraq. Iraqi insurgents were killing Americans Iraqis alike with IEP. Ds or Improvised Explosive Devices. Usually. E consisted of a burner phone wire to a combat. Tree Wyatt. Four a plastic explosive similar to see four. These weapons could be hidden anywhere buried underground inside buildings or hooked up to cars. Insurgents could set them off at any time from any distance by simply cooling the burner phone. An IEP D. combined the sneaky -ness of a sniper rifle with the mass devastation of a bomb. If Marine fell prey to an IEP de they'd be thrown into the air shaking so hard. They die of a brain injury before the fire could burn them. I E with the biggest danger in the field and the Marine Corps needed to learn how to find and defuse them. Their best bet was the precise and specialized tool poll from the annals of history. A well trained dog. Specifically wrecks. That said Mike, new they'd be Guinea Pigs, doing recon on an uncharted conflict, neither had ever been in a war zone, neither had even been on active duty. But in March, two, thousand and four. They flew straight into Iraq's triangle of death. That's what the Marines nicknamed. The most dangerous combat zone an area south of Baghdad. Scary as it was once, they touch down in Iraq. Mike was Eager to get working. No sooner with a on the ground, then explosions rang out in the distance, hearing the BANGS and booms. Rex spooked and barked back. But Mike had emission to find the source and stuff it. He felt imbued with a sense of purpose and didn't want to waste any time on their short six month deployments. One day early on the Marines patrol the memo dea along route soldiers dubbed I e, Alley. It was right in the middle of the triangle of death. It was also seemingly a normal Iraqi neighborhood. The Marines investigated an apartment convinced. The site was a cover for bomb building operations. Mike.

"Other and learn to overcome or mitigate factors that negatively impact preparedness reasonable rehashing. That one is because sometimes people utilize the candid feedback thing but they forget about ego and Hubris of the other person. So when they going to give you some feedback. There'a Echo Charles. What I forget about is that you have an ego and so by giving you this candid feedback that you're not really prepared to receive. You're going to get defensive. The whole nine yards and I can make any changes whereas if I can find a way to use maneuver warfare around that ego and provide you with feedback that somehow comes from your own brain because seeds planted by me. It's going to be better off. Throw a little bone to the Marine Corps on that one to take your thought process a little bit further on that one. Yes Dave little bit more. Just can we go a little bit? Can we apply what we're talking about just a little bit more and be a little bit a little? Bit Better candid. Feedback is awesome when there is this level of relationships enemy. Ego Egos have been putting check. It works and we strive for that. It's hard to achieve hard to achieve unemotional unemotional candid feedback. 'cause how many people do you know really are geared to absorb candid feedback in an unemotional manner especially after something like preparation for what. I wrote about that in leadership strategy and tactics like I tried to try to help the person on the receiving end right. I'm like listen when when somebody gives you criticism even if it's coming from someone that you think has no business giving you any feedback whatsoever. Listen to them. Yeah and absorbed what they say and see if you can apply it to make yourself better and that right there that little learning to do that as a human being if you could learn to do that as a human being your life is going to be thousand a thousand times better than it would if you never get over that hope of. Hey I don't like this guy so I'm not gonNA listen to what he has to say. Where someone that? Just open this. Is You know what? And this is your point Dave. How many people have I met in my entire life? That were just hit me with some more candid feedback so I can just get. Do they exist. Sure do we get to appoint do do sometimes people you know. I have a relationship with someone or someone else putting someone through training. I could just tell it like I'm I'm saying Nope we're like hey I got it. You know that's a great point. Thank you sure if that happens for sure doesn't happen. All the time doesn't happen most of the time. Does it say unemotional candid feedback? It says marine strive to view situations and information objectively and unemotionally provide candid feedback to each other and learn to overcome or mitigate factors that negatively impact preparedness a overall provide an except most so even the unemotional backed up that So you know how in a typical situation typical. I don't even know what you mean. But a situation where you're like. Hey candid feedback in the guy kind of takes it as as the the Golden Pass to just just basically hit them as hard as he can like yeah. This method was dog shit. That's not unemotional. That's emotional feedback right. There seems saying it's on the other side. It's on the negative emotion rather than you could've done better you know. I mean maybe that's candid euro. Someone take this one more one more step for for the next release of this when we're GonNa talk about this when they revise this when we talk about candid feedback. We also need to talk about human nature bite because human nature is. I bristle at candid feedback and like I said. Are there people that don't and the goal here? The goal is like Marine your marine. I'm GonNa give you some candid feedback. You'RE GONNA take it on board. We're GONNA move forward. I get it man. I love that I wish that the way the world works we have to remember human nature. We have to remember that human nature. It provides a level of resistance against candid feedback. I'm I'm sorry. And they and they they touch on it. They kind of talk about it a little bit. But they don't really get to the core of. Here's the real barrier. You're going to get when you're dealing with this now. The good news is that anybody. Listen to this. Podcast is already listened to the previous podcast. And if you're going to be an eminently qualified human the way you're gonNA deal with this when they're talking about viewing feedback objectively unemotionally. The real scenario as I'm in charge of his mission I build. The plan is all this stuff. And I'm the leader that I come back. And then Giacomo instructor comes back and destroys in what gives me feedback. Now what he should be able to do is tell me all these things. Let me go dude. Those are all really good points. I'M GONNA incorporate all those next mission brave to build this into my planning time. We're GONNA go get better but what I do is show up ready for that feedback to defend what I did because that was my plan. I was the mission commander and I can't be unemotional detached but I should be so if you're listening to this. Your job is to take all the feedback you get from the people that you cannot stand in unemotional and objective. Fashion we've got a question does last week. What do I do the perennial complainer on my team? That has constantly complaining about everything you know what the answer is listen to him. Hats actually have some feedback through. The problem. Isn't the Soprano complainer. The problems that you don't want to hear him but the almost exact opposite is true. When you were providing feedback if you go in with the assumption that that person will be Q. And UNEMOTIONAL and prepared. You're also going to be ineffective that you have to make the exact opposite approach. Which is you're going to be dealing with nothing. But their ego and you know if it turns out that I'm debriefing Jaakko. And he's totally in the game. Then then then that's then we're great. We represent I duNno five percent or ten percent of the interactions. If you're lucky that you're going to get but overtime if you actually take if people see you as a leader taking other people's feedback when they appear to be not credible and not good people take feedback from and you're willing to listen to them. You actually can influence other people. Doing them takes time. What they don't talk about in here is when you decide to go to. Here's all the barriers are going to be in place with this plan of. Hey Man I'm just gonNA come through the front door Jaakko some Kennedy vacuums. It's going to take it. It's GONNA go skin. Look Look Marine Corps. We get the ideal I would love. I would love if that was the way the world works. Unfortunately we have to deal with human nature. That's we have to deal with. Just have to deal with in combat. You have to deal deal with it in a debrief so be ready for it control. You can control learn from it all right. Violence and danger will always be parts of war learning to fight in dangerous conditions despite fear uncertainties Kita Warfighting Marines of all ranks must understand how the bind body and mind respond to fear and stress. So that they better control the responses in any situation including combat marines learn how to effectively control stress reactions and fight dangerous conditions to realistic training increasing self awareness understanding the attributes or and increasing mental and physical resilience for example. Marines learned breathing techniques during marksmanship training to better control. How the body's nervous system response to stress in order to shoot more accurately the breathing techniques help marines to control their heart rate respiration attention and muscular stress and muscles under stress which then increases the accuracy of fire combat can challenge unit cohesion in present. Marines with a variety of moral and ethical dilemmas marines developed strong mental moral spiritual and ethical understanding because they are as important as physical skills when operating in the violence.

"This 'cause training learning by doing okay. I get your hands on your making stuff. Happen and education is not right. Education is is study and Intellectual Development. That's that's what they're saying. Okay okay I think I'm starting to grasp it a little bit better because here's how I just draft it in my mind. The mission of both these things is to learn And both of them result in learning and so in my mind I was thinking well was one you learn in one. You don't learn but the actual fact is both these things you're GONNA learn. Just a method of learning one of them is one of them is study and one of them is doing. Yeah it almost seems like small things but but I don't think it's not I mean it's a big thing to understand the difference between those two. Is that if you were just training all the time and never really getting an education and what you're doing or studying or or or learning the bigger picture that that training wouldn't be nearly as useful. You would learn as much if you weren't educating yourself. While you're doing I know they talk more about it. But there's this idea like if I'm GonNa go to the rifle range and really good at shooting the rifle like train on the rifle over and over and over again. I could sit do the same thing that I can. Train Orono over again. Education comes from other components. Like what the aircraft? I'm fighting against could do what my enemies capable of with the Three D. Environment might be and that training evolves because of the Education. And if all ever did was sort of think about what that looked like in three dimensional battlespace and never trained for it that education by itself. I wouldn't learn as much about doing the training with it. Yeah yeah no I I. I'm seeing I'm seeing it. Continuing on Marines must always seek better ways to learn throughout the entire continuum of the training of training and education throughout this publication. The term learning is emphasized training education. Are you specifically referring to one or the other learning? Is the overall intended outcome of both training and education. So there you go interesting. We must have that must have been clogged thing in my brain from when I read this marines continuously learned to be ready for the constantly changing increasing demands of warfare and the range of missions as Marine Corps doctrinal publication. Six Command and control explains we earned the trust of others by demonstrating competence a sense of responsibility loyalty and self discipline. We just talked about that on. Wasp podcast right. The number one way to to earn. Trust is competence. Be Doing your job fig about that. We earned the trust of others by our own self discipline..

"Many of the concepts in this publication have been passed on by marine leaders throughout our history this publication seeks to formalize them and provide aspirational goals. That's a familiar. Subject learning is an institutional priority and a professional expectation for all marines. This mentality is key to the Marine Corps becoming a more effective learning organization. Now you're gonNA find as we run through this and the way they define learning and the way they talk about learning. Obviously this doesn't only apply to the profession of arms obviously doesn't apply only to the Marine Corps in applies to everybody in the world every human being continuing on the most important factor in this philosophy is the importance of continuous learning throughout our careers for warfighting. Continuous learning is essential to maneuver warfare because it enables marines to quickly recognize changing conditions in the battlespace adapt and make timely decisions against a thinking. Enemy these skills required in war must be learned developed and honed over time. If neglected they quickly atrophy. This is one of the first things I noticed. They break down this thing of when you're on the battlefield and this is so clear but when you're on the battlefield the enemies doing something. They're they're changing their tactics. And we've talked about that for years what you're actually doing your learning what they're doing and you're learning how you need to respond to it so the mindset of learning is that we. We talk about adaptation a lot. Well if you can't learn you're not going to be able to adapt anything. Marines leverage the art.

"Was a twenty year gerald u._s. Marine assigned to guard the embassy in tehran iran in november of that year he became the youngest of the american hostages as the islamic revolution took hold old in iran four hundred forty four days until kevin and the other hostages were freed and kevin. Thanks very much for your time. Today we greatly appreciate it. Well the real pleasure sure to join you and your listeners and <hes> look forward to a good conversation while it's it's one. I've been looking forward to <hes> for quite a while now. Let's begin with just the beginning of your story in real quickly. Where were you born and raised <hes>. I'm a native of the milwaukee wisconsin area born there grew up in the suburb at the age of eighteen <hes> as the eldest of a five kids <hes> decided to leave after high school and joined the marine corps <hes> to travel and see the world and eventually <hes> the plan was to be able to take advantage of the g._i. Bill which ultimately and eventually i did why the marines well honestly <hes> i i do have a grandfather on my mom's mom side who was a <hes> who is while he's deceased now but a world war veteran and <hes> but other than that really did not have a military presence in in my life <hes> background if you will in our family too much and i had a buddy in highschool who had been recruited to join the marine corps and and he came up to me one day and said hey listen i'm going to be joining the marine corps and they've got this thing called the buddy program and i started thinking about it and looking being added and <hes> <hes> saw it as a way to get some help for college which i wanted to pursue. A ultimately was the first one in my family who ever went to college judge and nonetheless <hes> it was <hes> it was a big change from what people might have been expecting. I i didn't have a plan for post high school and so it seemed as good of choices any <hes> it was supposed to be at phnom which was not really <hes> something i thought much about though as a young paper boy oy of ages twelve to sixteen i would read about it every day on the front pages of the newspaper. I did have a cousin who joined the marine corps <hes> which <hes> played the only a small role in my decision but it was really as part of the buddy program those recruiters to a good job you know so when you enlist that means you go the basic training and basic training for the marines is a little different than it is <hes> any other service branches so how was paris island for you. Well actually <hes> greg. I ended up in <hes> san diego. <hes> those individuals who grow up in the states that <hes> through which the mississippi river either goes or <hes> borders <hes> get a choice to go either to paris island or to san diego and that's where my buddy was going so that's where i am i went and and what's interesting. Is that <hes> my cousin had up in paris island. <hes> i did eventually end up in north carolina for some training but <hes> san diego you know they call it hollywood and <hes> we just sat around in our hawaiian shirts and sunglasses every day as you can imagine so once you completed that <hes> how soon after that was it that you were sent to iran well i signed up for the marines guaranteed contracts go into accounting and indeed <hes>. I went onto some accounting school. <hes> working in the supply field went down to north carolina for my training. I was really fortunate graduated top in my class <hes> for that brief stint and chose to go to japan where i did serve for fifteen months <hes> <hes> i was so very fortunate to get promoted twice in fifteen month period so it was while i was okinawa that i learned about <hes> the marine security already guard program and apply went to a meeting it was in the base theater and as you can imagine they've got big posters of marines and dress blues uniform arms big glossy full-size almost a banners <hes> photos of marines in front of the taj mahal and the eiffel tower and the great wall of china. I and i thought wow this is kind of interesting. I went to the meeting went to work the next morning and asked him a gunnery sergeant. If he had any familiarity at all with the program he did not and nonetheless s. agreed to write a letter of recommendation for me came back to quantico virginia in <hes> mayor june of nineteen seventy-nine for our training as a marine security guard. We started our class with one hundred and seventy nine <hes> students it was the first class that had both male and female marines scenes in it for the m._s._g. Program nine weeks eleven weeks later. Whatever it was <hes> graduated only one hundred and twenty one of us out of the one hundred seventy nine completed the training <hes> successfully and i got my assignment to go to germany and i thought this is terrific. I'm going to be assigned in the middle of europe. We're up <hes> at the u._s. Embassy in germany and certainly i'm going to learn the language. I'm going to be driving one hundred fifty miles an hour on the autobahn and i'm going. It'd be able to go skiing in the alps every other weekend well. That was my vision. That was the plan. After i got my orders and i came back on leave just just before it was to head out. I got back to quantico to gather my belongings and hit overseas and the sergeant major called me into his office and informed me that there had been a mistake and and <hes> they had accidentally assigned to jewish marines <hes> to go to tehran iran and i was going to be taking his place now in the context of mid nineteen seventy-nine. It's really not that far that much of a stretch <hes> for me to say that the first words out of my mouth to the sergeant major were sir. Excuse me but where's tehran so in today's environment we all know where is on the world map in nineteen seventy nine early nineteen nineteen seventy-nine anyway not so much and so <hes> when i think back on it today the very idea that they might have assigned a jewish marine accidentally to go to the u._s. Embassy in <hes> in in tehran would have been just horrible for him. <hes> i'm not saying i'm glad that i was a stand in for for him but <hes> it would have been worse for him from a treatment perspective because there was one jewish hostage <hes> berry rosen who had just horrendous treatment eight -ment he wasn't the marine but one of the state department folks and he had just horrendous treatment including because of his faith now. I don't know if you were briefed or later but obviously the revolution was already ongoing by the summer of seventy nine in fact there had been a very brief hostage incident in february of that year. So what were you told to expect and what were your first impressions once you got there. Will you know as a young marine sergeant. I was very fortunate to have been promoted to the rank of e. Five sergeant fifteen months after after i left for boot camp <hes> i had all the responsibility of a sergeant e five in the marine corps but at age twenty having just turned age aged twenty i had very little capability or skills of being a leader and <hes> so <hes> i was excited about the opportunity attorney to go back overseas <hes> we didn't really we were not briefed on the environment in the countries in which we were going to be based <hes> that took place place on site once we got there <hes> and so when the other three guys and i got off the plane in the middle of the night in tehran mehrabad international airport and we were greeted by armed guards and a bunch of mola's running around <hes> as well as all the revolutionaries it was quite <hes> quite quite disconcerting to be sure the next day found myself of course <hes> going through briefings and training and i thought to things while what did i get myself itself into <hes> but secondarily i thought to myself wow i'm in the middle of something. I'm in the middle of country which is consequential sequential in that era in time and little. Did i know just how consequential events would become over the course of the next three months so in the three months leading up to november four th which will obviously get to in just a moment <hes>. How tense was it right outside the u._s. Embassy or or wherever you were posted they're on a regular basis or early on. I would not describe them as tense or intense. Even <hes> things were pretty relaxed. When we first arrived arrived during the day we would quite often <hes> be able to go out to the local <hes> shopping district the marines <hes> once a week we would get in our big van and and <hes> other than the guys on duty the rest of us would head up into the mountains north of the city and do our p._t._o. Physical training do are running and such <hes> we we had visitors over from the british embassy in the canadian embassy and the australian embassy. <hes> you know we would we would play cards. We drink beer. We'd we'd have have a good time. We'd play softball out on the big twenty twenty three acre sprawling compound comprised of the u._s. embassy in nineteen seventy nine. We would play football with one one another. <hes> i enjoyed the first two and a half three months. We were there <hes> two and a half months anyway and then that's when the shah of iran was given the go-ahead to come into the united states for his medical treatment of course the shah the former leader before the ayatollah khomeini took over <hes> the shah was in very real <hes> suffering from cancer and so the u._s. government president carter made the decision to admit him into the philadelphia cancer center and <hes> he he was there for cancer treatment for a few weeks until the u._s. Government ultimately decided that he should leave the country of the united states because within that added intervening time the u._s. Embassy was overrun. We were taken captive in the beginning of the hostage. Ordeal began so kevin. We've built right up to the day <hes>. Let's talk about november fourth nineteen seventy-nine what happened we've <hes> at the time become familiar with the protests in the streets the burning of the american flags chanting of the people <hes> tens of thousands literally tens of thousands of people on a daily basis <hes> surrounding this twenty three acre compound <hes> many buildings on it <hes> the big motor pool even the chancery building and the consulate were on the compound itself the ambassador's residence we marines actually we lived outside the back gate in an apartment building <hes> not on the compound so it was not not secure it was not <hes> protected in any way whatsoever <hes> the protests in the demonstration the death to america chanting the yankee he go home all of that <hes> the signs that said send the shah back to iran for <hes> for war crimes trials that they wanted to put him on <hes> they disdained president carter's support for the shaw and that became the ultimate motivation to come onto the compound and to capture the americans and hold us captive for four hundred forty four days though i think everybody involved would admit that neither we nor they expected that it would drag gone for fourteen and a half months marine security guards at that time in tehran we were only carrying twelve gauge shotguns and thirty eight caliber revolvers and a huge satchel of tear gas..

"Drones ceremonies. Take precedence. I know that. No, I did not know that if it's a joint services thing in the Marine Corps ones. Take precedence. Why is that because ours are the cleanest in the best? Let's. Because the air force guys whenever I was on Lackland would get pissed because if any of the marine showed up, it'd be technically became a joint service thing, and then there I sergeant would have to come get me because I was a senior enlisted leader at the dog school. So I would have to go and help them in like teach them which way to do it because the Marine Corps Jones ceremonies manual takes precedence. I did not know that that's interesting to to hear can Kate. You'll be glad to hear that one of the things are getting rid of is the I think the most pointless thing in the history of the drawn ceremonies, which was the stack arms command. Do you? Remember that one? Nope. You won't be amazed at the shit that I just completely assume as I got home like that ten hours of standing on that pavement in the hot sun. Whatever memory that was gone, but I will say Marine Corps him totally fucks. And I am glad great song. So here's the words from the comma on himself. He said it is now directed that marines president who have served honorably who are not in formation or part of an actual ceremony or marching in parade or review who when they hear the playing of the marines him will stand at the chicken face, the music and sing the worst of the him. That's what they updated. I says I gotta say I like that. I. I. I always put you, you know, what it always puts you in a weird position. I was when I I went up to Boston. I went to Boston for an army National Guard's where I was I gave a little speech their end because I was a marine. They gave me the courtesy at the end of their mess night of playing the Marine Corps him while there's always some motivator who's there who wants to sing along or sing it out. But deep inside my brain now that that's not what you're supposed to do. You're supposed to stand there at attention. So really showed odds not after April fifteenth. But before then if you're the one thing announced, although you're Moto, you were wrong interest in a couple of situations where it's broken out. And it gives me like the chills like I went to a Marine Corps birthday ball with like all old dudes in Pennsylvania after I got out. And they couldn't help it. They all started singing by the end. They were like the seeing it. And I was like all fuck. Yep. Yeah. I mean, if you guys can you guys both thing it right now or who's here we have someone like playing. Yeah. How many people are tapping on the fast forward? Fifteen second thing, right? From the halls of mine five stand. Stores. We. Trees. Busy on land in the ocean. I two five four three two. Par on please fresh. We una crowd to play. It's. In the words of longtime still events tape able bring hand slaps for sure. Totally sucks. It slaps. If those different sounds. All right. All right. All right in every club place where we could take the gun pool that trigger now. Okay. Anyway, honestly, the next line if the army and the navy ever looked on you know, it's it's in the snow of far off northern lands. Wow. Say like in the normal.

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.
