Sebastian Welcomes Captain Henry Hendrix (Ret.) to the Show

"End studio captain Henry J Jerry Hendricks, U.S. Navy retired. Welcome in studio. It's a pleasure to be here. Thank you for having me, doctor gorka. So we had a super fun discussion. I think we bought everybody around us because we got into the nitty Gritty of national defense, the navy personnel, very, very rapidly at this little soiree. Tell our audience, who you are, what's your background and what you have done in and out of uniform to serve this nation? Well, I joined the navy in 1988 out of an ROTC scholarship at Purdue. I served in the P three community doing maritime patrol and reconnaissance. I flew in Saudi Arabia during desert storm. I flew over Yugoslavia during the 1990s doing maritime surveillance over land doing ISR. And then 9 11 occurred. I was actually here in Washington, D.C. serving with the chief of naval operations staff when 9 11 occurred. I knew a number of shipmates who were killed in The Pentagon. My career sort of changed to strategy after that. So I went back and got a master's in diplomatic history, became a strategist largely worked for Andy Marshall in the office of net assessment. Yoda. Yes, and it's a great pleasure and honor to work for that man. Ended up working for the secretary of the navy as the director of his advisory panel and then finally, because no good deed goes unpunished, I served out my last three years as director of naval history since they figured out I had a PhD. And then I retired and I worked in a think tank as ahead of a defense program and now I work as a consultant and also with the sagamore institute of think tank in Indianapolis, Indiana. All right,

"It's my privilege to have Pete hex who is a good friend of mine. I got to know him over the years, so when I was time in Congress, working with him at Fox. And watching him just grow to be a very strong forceful voice for just American values, our military. He and our most share that military just, I'm 20 years in the air force. He's been military in his and he's wrote about that a great deal. But today we're going to get into not only a sort of both our backgrounds a little bit coming up through classical education and what that actually means, but also the attacks that have been coming up. And he has a new number one bestseller out on The New York Times Best Seller list, the battle for the American mind uprooting a century of miseducation. Pete, welcome to the Doug Collins podcast. Hey, congressman. Thanks for having me. I really appreciate it. We're glad. Before we get started into your book, sort of talk about, you know, how this evolved and you were talking offline about raising our kids and my kids are older years with younger. But you know, we both grew up in education and probably at the time we were going through it, didn't realize a lot of what you wrote about, but tell us about your background for those who might not be familiar with it. A 100% right. I mean, first of all, I consider myself a child of privilege because I had a mom and a dad and love me and a great community took me to church and taught me the basics. You know, that is the older you get, the more foundational you realize that is and you try to instill it in your kids, but I went to public school, played basketball played football, loved it. That's all I really cared about as a kid. It pretty much an apolitical household. I mean, they were conservative, but it wasn't, it wasn't something we talked about all the time. Yeah, went to college did ROTC went into the military, did a bunch of did a bunch, but a couple of deployments and got into vets work vets advocacy after coming home. And ultimately, that's where I ended up interacting a lot. The folks on Capitol Hill and realizing the challenges up there. And then stumbled my way into TV where I get a chance now to talk about the issues of the day with great folks like

"rotc" Discussed on Not Your Average Gun Girls

"And I'm so thankful for what you do because you are such a voice of reason and I think so many young women look up to you and so, you know, I'm just really thankful for what you've been doing for such a long time. Thank you. You know, it's been an interesting journey within the Second Amendment conversation for me in particular. I occasionally will post about being really pro gun or really two a but that's not necessarily my brand as a creator and much more of a Gen Z cultural lifestyle influencer. And so I think it's interesting when I do post about that, the conversations that come out of that, mostly people are just curious because they themselves maybe weren't exposed to guns in their house. What are they asking you? They have no idea what that actually means. I like to respond me neither. Like I literally had no exposure to that. My dad had a few hunting rifles and shotguns in a safe in our storage room in the basement. And I was growing up, but I never went hunting with him, and I didn't know how to shoot a gun. And when I went to college, I had so many friends in ROTC, and they were just shocked that I didn't even know how to shoot a gun. I didn't know how to pick it up. And they said, fine, we'll teach you, so occasionally we would go out to the gun range, and we would shoot everything from handguns to their military grade weapons and everything in between. And it was so fun to learn that because the moment I pulled the trigger on my very first gun I ever shot, which was a 22, there's like no kickback ever. I'm like, oh, this really isn't that scary. It's actually kind of fun and I was so nervous as I was pulling back on the trigger the first time that I had no idea what to expect. And I think having that illusion shattered for me was really what got me excited about shooting for fun about potentially exercising my Second Amendment right to protect myself, eventually when I did decide to get my concealed carry permit. And so I always like to encourage young adults who are curious about this and their questioning it. Just go try it. Go figure it out. I mean, because you said predominantly your audience is Gen Z, right?.

"That. I don't give a damn about you. The younger Jason that definitely probably would have been. I could totally have seen that for sure. So you were trying to balance both of those. Did you end up spending all four years at duke and using all of your eligibility? How did that work out? Because that's a good question. I did spend all four years. In fact, 5 with the red shirt year. And going into my senior year, I actually had to start a graduate program to stay eligible for the NCAA makes sense. How did that fit in with the ROTC with your contract? Because they have to delay anything. I will say, when I was coming through, my understanding of the ROTC was after you contract, going into what they call it like your junior senior year, your MS three and MS four year after your contract, it gets much more rigid. You're in the military officially. The first two years some people do it and they say, hey, it's not for them. Anyways, for me, I had kind of a condensed first two years. I did lots of independent studies. I would have to I'd have to meet with the professors all the time to get caught up on things I might have missed because again, I read shirted that first year I broke my foot the next. I wasn't in a lot of shape to be a good ROTC cadet. So I was in school for 5 years. I did ROTC for I've got like three and a half years. And some of those ROTC credits that I still needed to get, I needed to finish up. They went over into that super senior year into that 5th year. Finished that. And then I'm getting ready for the military draft. And I'm.

Everything You Need to Know About Michael Waller

"War. He is Michael Waller. He is senior analyst for strategy at the center for security policy, author of secret empire, the KGB in Russia today. Mike, welcome to America first one on one. It's great to be with you, Seb. All right, let's start at the big picture stuff. We got to deal with the conspiracy theories, the tinfoil hattery, including on our side, sadly, for conservatives, but okay, let's start with you. You were doing some interesting things during the real Cold War in the 1980s. Tell our millions of listeners across the planet. Who Mike Waller is and what's he done? Oh, well, started out with president Reagan. I was a college kid in army ROTC and the army wasn't doing anything. So I quit and joined the contras in Nicaragua. Drive the country. How does a kid join the contras? Where'd you go to the contrary recruiting office? No, it didn't happen. It was actually president Reagan's staff and faith whittlesey. You remember that? Yes, of course. Yeah. So how did you know them? How did you know the administration? So Morton Blackwell leadership institute. So I was skinny intern with a lot of hair back then. And I sent it intern and Morton Blackwell worked in that office. And he said, hey, come to something called cpac. Cpac 81. Wow. And then he disappeared right after Reagan was elected, went on the transition team, and so I kept up with him as a youth activist. And this is a question where you have people go to high places like in The White House and they bring young people along with them to recruit cadre. And that's how I made the connections to go. So how old were you? 21. And why were you such a hardcore anti communist age 21, Mike Walla? Because I was an environmental activist in high school against the nuclear power plant, and then I was dressed down in a self criticism meeting where I was told this is not about the environment this is about overthrowing American capital. Oh, hang on. So there was like a Maoist self critique session with your bodies and then you saw the light that has nothing to do with Gaia and mother earth. No, it was. It was professionals. This is northern New England, and I was just a 15 years old, and these were professionals from California who came in. And we were just kids. We just cared about not dumping boiling water from a reactor core into the ocean where we'd go fishing with our grandpa. And that's what I was interested

"rotc" Discussed on The Dentalpreneur Podcast with Dr. Mark Costes

"That's exactly how I operate too, yeah. That's cool. That's cool. Well, I do have to say, you know, one of the things that I do, I don't live my life this way, but if I was to do things over, I don't have regrets or anything like that because anything that I would have done different would mean that I'm in a different slightly different spot than I am today and I've never I'm so blessed that I wouldn't change anything. But one of the things that I wish that I would have considered was going into the military either during the time when I was trying to get into dental school or maybe apply for a scholarship, I don't know if I would have gotten one. But or even ROTC or something because I had a four year period almost a four year period of time anyway while I was trying to get into dental school. But yeah, I super admire the fact that you are doing this. You're getting to serve the country. And you're coming in at a very high level. You're an officer already. You have a good salary. One of the things that I will say is that what I was getting at when I was asking if you amortize that math out was that if you look at say somebody $300,000, you divide that by four, that's what 73,075 $1000 a year that they have to make more than more than you in order to make it worth your scholarship. But the thing is that nobody pays their student loans off, especially $300,000 loan often four years. So after four years, man, you are home free, everything that you do is going to be in the green. Is it going to be in the green debt free? That is just a beautiful, beautiful thing. Yeah. Absolutely. I'm excited for it. And people may say it's a bit of a sacrifice for four years. And it is sort of you don't really necessarily have 100% certainty where you're going to be. Or what kind of dentistry.

"Lieutenant colonel Alan west is at you. This is me and it's good to be with you Eric and it's good to see you again and just want to wish you a happy new year. Happy new year to you. 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. But let's just talk about you. Some people know you, some people don't, where did you grow up? What you've got an amazing background obviously being a lieutenant colonel being a member of Congress. Tell us a little bit about yourself if you would. Well, I was born in 1961 and the inner city of Atlanta, Georgia and the blacks only hospital. I grew up in the same neighborhood that produced doctor marvelous the king junior is called the old fourth ward neighborhood in Atlanta. My elementary school was right across the street from ebenezer baptist church. I had two fantastic parents. My father was a World War II veteran, an army Corporal served in the European theater of operations and my mother did a little over 25 years of civilian service to a Marine Corps headquarters there in Atlanta. 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. So I started wearing a uniform back in 1976 in high school junior ROTC. And then I went out to the university of Tennessee and on 31, July 1982 I was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the army in the field artillery, and I served 22 years active duty in United States Army 13 different countries three different combat zones. I retired in August of 2004, been married for 32 years, my wife, her dad also was career army, 24 years. He's buried in all of the national cemetery. He served two tours of duty in Vietnam.

Now-Former DEA Agent Mark Ibrahim Has a Long History of Serving and Loving His Country

"I've got the honor of speaking with Mark Ibrahim, former agent at the DEA who was suspended from the agency for the huge crime of being outside the capitol on January 6th. It's madness, but we have to talk about it. He's facing 15 years in prison for doing Jack, I believe, is the legal term for doing nothing. But we're living in crazy times and it's important for us to talk about it to get the facts out. Mark Ibrahim, I want to say that, first of all, as an American. I apologize that we're living in a country right now where we've allowed things to get to this place where people like you are being persecuted. It's a monstrous thing. I believe God is with us in this battle. And with you, and I want to say thank you again for being willing to come on. This program to talk about this because Americans need to know this is happening to folks like you to get the details. Now you said to me that you didn't really get in trouble until you appeared on Tucker Carlson to talk about this. When were you on Tucker Carlson? A couple of months ago. I went on when I was in fire, you know, I was just banded three times for my 11 participation in the January 6th riot is what I was told. And then I wasn't fired for that. I was fired for performance issues. And so Tucker Carlson got wind of this and he asked me to come on and I said, you know, it's preposterous that if you're gonna fire me for my alleged at least fire me for my alleged participation in the riot, right? But they just pretext in case they didn't find anything. They said, oh, performance issues. And that's it. So I went on just letting them know that, hey, it's not right. I love my country. I have a history of sort of my country. I was ROTC, you know, I wanted to be a chaplain and then I ended up becoming an intelligence officer. My mother wasn't a Pentagon on 9 11. My brother was an army Intel officer, and I followed him to federal law enforcement. He went FBI. I went DEA. I thought the DEA was a little more on the ground, boots on the ground, and you know, I kind of feel like the FBI are analysts with guns. But there's still some good people in the FBI and I have a long history of wanting to serve and love

"Kind of tabled that idea. I was like, really? When I was copied, it was hard because that was a personal friend of mine, and it was a connection that I was just really sad. And so when that happened, after I moved around a little bit, I realized if somebody's copying me, it must mean that I'm doing something right. And that mind shift that mindset shift. Allowed me to confidently create templates that I use my business and to kind of create a consulting offering for other aspiring makeup artists. You want to use my website stuff, here you go. You can pay for it, and I will help you set it up and implement it into your business. So I kind of learned a lot about ecommerce. I set up that shop on that bad site. I think I had maybe one or two seals. One that news site was up. And so the website. I knew that when I was going to relaunch my site because I couldn't keep it how it was. I saved and I made sure that I did it right and I did a lot of research. I did a lot myself and I paid for some of the industry experts. On the platform that I'm hosting my satellite on my site on. And I'll say I made all of that money back within a few months that I spent on the news site. And I only can say that because I went through it. And I can only say that because I built my site and then I handed it off to someone else and realized they're not going to do it as good as me. So I knew I wanted to be able to be in control of my own website. So it's always a learning process. It's always very important. So now everybody else and then hashtag makeup artists live hashtag MUA hashtag makeup by me. They're still doing the exact same thing. And I don't care because I know that I am living my core values. I know him that I am serving my audience the way that they need to be served. And I know I'm speaking truth and I know I'm speaking love and I know that I don't need to worry about how many followers I have. So recap, how to stand out comparison is the thief of joy. If you always compare you're going to plateau, you're probably going to burn out works not going to be fun. I'm telling you, I was there. At the end of year three, I was done being a makeup artist. I you have to dig deep to figure out what makes you great. What is your secret sauce? For me, my secret sauce was education. Clients kept saying I teach them as I apply makeup. I always explain what I'm doing as I apply makeup. I don't make them look like a clown. Their words not mine. I listen. I respect their values. All of the things that I believe that are going into my core values, those were coming out in the testimonials, and I realized that's where I want to do. And lastly, learning from your failures, you have to fail in order to grow in order to get the next step. You know, I remember in ROTC, I had a handful of Friends, one of which I'm still close with. And she was the opposite immunology. She was kind of always the top cat. She was always getting all the awards and getting all the leadership positions and I was just kind of like barely scraping by. I didn't want to lose my scholarship..

"That core value in great enemies since junior ROTC. Because yes, I did junior ROTC to get my scholarship. So I've had those core values ingrained me. Those are just everyday life for me. But I knew in my business I wanted to be approachable, I wanted to be authentic and I wanted to be inclusive. I knew that I wanted people to come to me and feel comfortable and know that I'm not going to judge them or make them feel less or make them feel like they needed a lot of makeup. I wanted to show images real images that weren't super photoshopped that were before and after, and while a lot of people don't want the before and after pictures, a lot of people end up loving them because they see the beauty before and they see what the makeup does after. So I was starting to be more comfortable sharing those images that didn't look like perfectly photoshopped images. And also inclusivity was so important to me. It's been important to me since year one of my business. I will say that's probably been the one consistent thing. I always knew that makeup is for everyone I believe it. Regardless of gender regardless of age in regardless of race, makeup is for everyone. And I wanted to make sure that that was always clear in my messaging. I never wanted a marginal marginalize anyone. And that was really important so that I could also learn from my failures. When you have your values strong, you know your goal, you know, your passions, you know, your flexibility. You know everything. Then you have to go back and look at your failures. And figure out what maybe there's nothing you can salvage from it. Maybe it's just a lesson learned, or maybe you can find something in there. So let me tell you about some of my big failures in business. And these are failures that cost me a lot of money. I feel so many times. I already told you my very first client story. But the failures that have cost me the most money and the most heartache was my field workshop. I had I had gone through all my testimonials. You know, I had figured out that I am an educator and that people loved learning how to wear makeup from me. So I had said, well, everybody says this, I should start doing makeup workshops. So I planned my very first makeup workshop. It was the makeup reset workshop. And I mean, I was so excited about it. I paid for branding. I had a graphic designer and a marketing expert putting together this beautiful website for me on my page. I mean, it was just stunning and it was a lot of money. And I had worked really hard on having a workbook for that too and paid a lot of money for this workbook. And we had the first one. It was the beta and it was about $50 a person when we did our second workshop. I mean, crickets. I think we doubled the price and nobody was signing up. And nobody did. And I was losing a lot of enthusiasm, and so I did kind of just pretend it never existed. I never officially canceled it, 'cause nobody signed up. And I was just hoping nobody would notice. But no, that was a field workshop idea. I have since run workshops that have been successful, but I've had to completely approach it at a different way..

Professor Ruth Wisse Explains Why Liberals Are Less 'Pro-Israel' Than Conservatives

"I'm talking to ruth weiss ruth. I'm gonna play the role of eric. You play the role of ruth. You've written this book. Free as jew. You have a background teaching at harvard. you eventually became a conservative. You are pro israel. I think that needs to be said. Why is it. I get the impression that religious jews conservative. Jews are pro israel. Liberal jews tend almost to be pro palestinian or very worried about israel In the way that the harvard faculty was worried about the rotc. Well i mean well the connection you're making is exactly right. I think Why is that. well. I don't put it so much as pro israel that i cannot for the life of me understand how any decent human being could be anything but pro israel. The great question is why did the arab world Why did the arab league organiz in nineteen forty five against the state of israel. You tell me and why. I have my theories. Well i have many theories. I wrote a book about that too. Actually called jusin power Trying to explain anti semitism. And which i define as the organization of politics against the jews and my sense is that you always have to look at the function of anti semitism. Who does it serve. And what purposes does it serve and it seems very clear that the only glue of the arab league in nineteen forty five was common opposition to the state of israel and that's still in some profound terrifying way. The only actual unifying element on a political level within that terribly disparite and and and really frac fragmented and fractured world. So it plays a very important part among arab and muslim societies and unfortunately lately it has been imported into the united states of america quite successfully and driven home

Ruth Wisse and Eric Discuss Liberals' Perceived Victimhood and Apathy

"Strikes me that the left in america has fallen in love with with with victimhood. And that they they don't like celebrating sometimes because it almost implies within we haven't suffered enough we want you to focus on are suffering as though something's gained by that you're saying that's not how people learn. It's not a good thing but you see that narrative surely in in american life in the latter part of the the twentieth century just kind of took over and people they wanna wallow they wanna be victims. They wanna remind you of how much they've suffered because it gives them some kind of perverse status. Well that may be true of some people. But you know what i saw. When i was teaching at harvard actually was something quite different. knowle's troubling but very different people didn't wanna fight and what surprised me most about harvard and all the twenty one years that i taught there i became involved in faculty meetings as i had never been before when i was at mcgill and And i saw that there was. They refused to let. Rotc the reserve officer training corps. That had always been at the basis of higher education. There was always training of the best and the brightest young people during precisely the age when you have to go into the arm right. That's the hr so with their. The there was for for forty years forty years right. The faculty of harvard kept rossi off the campus. They did everything. They kept changing the rationale for keeping it on campus so as not to allowed on campus. What is that about what they were actually saying to. These kids is forgive me but this is the way i understood it. America is not worth defending. Of course that's exactly what they're saying. It's worse than that. They were saying that. America is bad. And they're saying that. Any kind of militarism or i should say any kind of self-defence is militarism is a step away from the quagmire of vietnam and chest thumping Jingoism i mean. That's where the left has been for a long time. It breaks my heart but this is all through the culture. Obviously just places like harvard.

"Congressman lee zeldin. Welcome back as ed great to be with you so much discuss great to have you open the second hour of the show. First things i. I don't know if this is tough for you to comment on with your reserve status and everything else. But i'm touched by. This is a member of presidential appointee to the pentagon's national security education board. My body sean. Spicer ghana latter yesterday trying to force him to resign from the board of visitors for the annapolis naval academy west point board members of being threatened by the biden. Administration your reaction to what should be totally apolitical. Bipartisan boards helping to run our military's academies. Well first off. It's important to point out that sean has served in our military has warned the uniform. He is a proud navy. Man with experience at tactical operational and strategic levels He brings all the right ingredients and perspectives. And what's ironic about the announcement. Is that jen. Psaki states that their decisions aren't going to be based off of party registration. Well then why are you getting rid of somebody with that kind of experience like sean has pours his heart into it dedicated. You know he's not doing that for prestige or money or title. He's just doing it to give back the other element of this. That i'm greatly concerned about is this Desire to Socially engineer the military. And i signed up for the army. Rotc when i was eighteen years old in nineteen ninety eight watts served on active duty from two thousand three two thousand seven. I've been in the reserve since two thousand seven. Seven is still today wearing my Hat as a member of congress putting aside my hat as a member of the military but wearing my how my has a member of congress. I am very active in ensuring that. Our military is focused on y on accomplishing one image. One mission above all else and that is protecting our nation our national defense protecting our safety our homeland And they just need to be given every last possible tool that they need to do that.

You have to be a corporal you have to be in for two years. Pull your officers from the enlisted ranks and then let them go so yes we don't have to college be a requirement or anything like do you perform. Do you have the ability to lead. I can go be enough sir. I don't hate that eliminating. Rotc because the other problem with rotc program is really is very varied school the school so if you get squared away rotc commander euro to see programs going to be really good versus. If you're at some other university and your commander kinda stinks so the the level of off you have to be in. Rtc to go be an officer somewhere else just kind of better though having some of them run through the old college mill and every officer just rolling up from depends what you're gonna do that. I think it should be. It should be attached to your job. Like what is having a degree in art history. Really do if you're in artillery. Not a home loan you can get through artillery officer school that that really is the stuff you need to know this. One super simple from from sucker for parlay so he must be on the barcelo sportsbook. He says paper just in general. Just get rid of paper actually. That's a great idea. The amount of money that we spend on paper has to be astronomical and with that printers ink for printers and antiquated. Let let official paper work. Go through the doesn't have to be absolutely perfect like you know. I can't tell you how many times where you would have letters tent or training manuals that you had to print over and over and over again because somebody wanted to correct it corrected on microsoft word.

Opposition to Israel Has Been Imported From the Arab League Into America

"Written this book. Free as a jew. You have a background teaching in harvard. You eventually became a conservative. You are pro israel. I think that needs to be said. Why is it. I get the impression that religious jews conservative. Jews are pro israel. Liberal jews tend almost to be pro palestinian or very worried about israel In the way the harvard faculty was worried about the rotc. I mean well the connection you're making is exactly right. I think Why is that. Well i don't put it so much. As pro israel i cannot for the life of me understand how any decent human being could anything but pro israel. The great question is why did the arab world Why did the arab league organiz in nineteen forty five against the state of israel. You tell me and why. I have my theories. Well i have many theories. I wrote a book about that to actually called jusin power Trying to explain antisemitism which i define as the organization of politics against jews and my sense is that you always have to look at the function of antisemitism who does it serve. and what purpose does it serve. And it seems very clear that the only glue of the arab league in nineteen forty five was common opposition to the state of israel. And that's still in some profound and terrifying way the only actual unifying element on a political level within that terribly disparite and and really fragmented and fractured world. So it plays a very important part. Among the arab and muslim societies and unfortunately lately it has been imported into the united states of america quite successfully and driven home

Afghanistan War: What Do Veterans Think About the Withdrawal?

"Americans served in the war. Nearly 2500 service members lost their lives. James Laporta is a former Marine infantry rifleman who first arrived in Afghanistan in 2000 and nine while on patrol. He would sometimes take videos of what was happening. This is a typical day in Afghanistan. It's about 110 degrees outside, but as soon as you walk into the fields, the fields are irrigated and So they're incredibly humid. It's almost like someone turns up the temperature, so when you start to walk to those fields, it's almost like someone's taking a breath away. Doing two tours of duty, James held many jobs, including infantry Squad leader and working in intelligence. Today. He is an investigative reporter for The Associated Press, James Thanks for joining me, Thanks for having me. So how long had you been in the Marine Corps before you got sent to Afghanistan? It was about three years. At that point. I come in in the summer of 2000 and six basically, 10 days after high school, I showed up to boot camp. Was being in the Marine Corps at that point, like what you thought it would be when you were in high school, dreaming about joining No. Hi. I was in jail ROTC in high school, which is junior reserve Officer Training Corps, which was a lot of fun. And you know when you wear uniforms and you march around, and I was sort of naive, you know, when I joined in 2000 and six, the focus was still on Iraq. Still looking for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, so Afghanistan was sort of an afterthought. When you first got deployed to Afghanistan, were you excited? Did did you want to go? I volunteered. Yeah, I was with the second Marine Regiment. And second Italian eighth Marines. The battalion that I became a part of they didn't have enough personnel to go to Afghanistan, so they came over to second Marine Regiment asking Marines. Does anybody want to jump on a deployment?

Being the best with Tony Herbert, "Soldier"

"Podcast to seventy three. We were with anthony. Herbert tony herbert. Also known ass and we started off his journey from a kid growing up in pennsylvania surf. You haven't listened to podcasts. To seventy three goal of that right now. He tried to join the marines at fourteen. Fourteen years old credit eventually joined the army at seventeen off. The korean war went from private to master sergeant. All kinds of heroic actions suffered all kinds of wounds shot hit with frag white phosphorus burns and also bayoneted multiple times including one bayonet stabbed that broke off in his chest. He in the korean war served as a platoon leader even though he was just a young enlisted guy and eventually at the end of that podcast and at the end of that part of his life. Us pulled off the battlefield. One of the most decorated soldiers of the war sent on a morale at it was basically morale tour and i were flown back to the to the white house. President truman and then basically went to london and antwerp in brussels and the hague and all the other european allies that were fighting alongside america in the korean war along the way he met. Mrs eleanor roosevelt. She encouraged him to go to college. He kind of agreed of the quotes. He says in the book is he. He agreed because he was already master sergeant in the army and he said what am i going to do. Sit around the enlisted man's club telling stories about korea so he was sort of not not over it but he realized that he'd kinda done what he was going to do. So he ends up getting assigned as an rotc instructor at a high school in denver because he liked to ski goes to the third ranger class. That ever happened. He was in. He ends up getting married to his hometown. Sweetheart mary grace starts going to college or he then he gets out of the army then starts going to college at the university of pittsburgh while he's there he writes a book called conquest. No war nowhere. Which was his first book about the korean war which he later rewrote which we covered. What when it was rewritten was called the making of a soldier. That was podcast to seventy three for the most part worked at a steel mill at night while he was going to college and then eventually commissioned as an officer in the pennsylvania national guard. Shout out to the To two eight iron soldiers all right so so then he goes to the. He's back kind of in the army and he gets them warnings at the army's different now you know the war is over. The good people got out. We just left with people. That shouldn't even be in the army that got those kind of warnings but he stayed in. He loves being a soldier he wants to be. A soldier. goes the basic army. Infantry course wins nine out of ten awards there including the leadership trophy which is the leadership. Trophy is awarded by the other students. Like the other students select. Who deserves this leadership trophy. Then he gets assigned as a ranger instructor and he starts. He starts in the mountain phase. And so today we're going to be reading so the first book that we covered we covered a little bit so he's written two books he's written. Three one was conquest to know where that one got rewritten. As the making of a soldier that was the bulk of what we read last time. This time we're gonna read from his second book primarily and it's just called soldier called soldier and lots of lessons learned but as i mentioned in the first podcast in two seventy three. There's some serious lessons learned about life and things get really crazy when he goes to vietnam as a battalion commander and we will get there all right so here we go go go to the book soldier written by anthony be herbert and he says this teaching young men the essentials of mountain climbing combat and survival was more of a learning experience for me than for them. I began discovering things about the resources in me as well as the way the army was moving. I was an

We could see quite often from where we live going up. Point the final approach for san francisco international airport. So i've really enjoyed watching the airplanes. Come in and that just kind of got me interested in aviation basically so i assume that with your dad as an ace after the war where people were there a lot of adulation or was it kind of a a normal thing to be ace. Well i don't think it was a normal thing. I think a lot of people were proud of it for that but but as time went on it became something more within the family that you know we we. We knew he was guy we thought of him as kind of a hero in his flying endeavors and listening to stories was a lot of fine. You know sure so. Wendy take your first flying lesson first. Flying lesson in nineteen sixty. Seven is my first year in college. I graduated from high school. And i was interested in the asian so i wasn't sure you know exactly what i was going to study. The only college in california that offered a four year degree in in Aviation was san jose state but that was in business administration the the college of san mateo community college. They had a two year. Course that specialized the end basic training to be a pilot studied aerodynamics amex navigation in urology and stuff in in in one of the three hundred courses was actually forty hours of flying a cessna down to san carlos airport so i thought this is the perfect way to get going and so i enrolled in that program guy solo to november of nineteen sixty seven eighteen. Okay now did you. Did you collect ratings right away. After that i got my private and the course led to a commercial a rating but after about the first three semesters i kinda realizing that. This is really what i want to do. My goal is to become an airline pilot. And i knew it'd be an airline pilot. That i was gonna actually need my adp. And soft. and i was going to need to accumulate.

Because it seems like it seems like if I was going to do that at the seals was my calling I'd probably do it the way you did it. Even if I knew I wanted to be an officer. Did you know you wanted be Nassir like in the mid nineties or does that something that kind of presented itself as you were in? It presented itself while I was in. It was a really my you know I wanted to straight in and the interesting thing is it's like you talk about I, encourage young men out there if they. If they WANNA, be a seal. Even if they WANNA, be a seal officer later unless their heart is just set on being a seal officer right up Thron, I highly recommended them get your degree and then enlists and you'll learn so much more. Don't give you a whole lot more options and opportunities, and you can always we'd like to we like to. From Within for Austin core, we like the fleet off our enlisted. So I think it would make you a better officer in that in that type of unit and that small unit leadership I would want that experience coming in as an enlisted seal if it was me. That's how I would approach it. Yeah I think it would make a better officer me maybe I'm just being biased that way but I just think no yeah, ninety percent of the time. Absolutely. Yeah. So when you went in, what was the desire? WAS IT Will you went to the Navy intelligence I write? You weren't you didn't go straight. Did you know you wanted to be a seal when you're in intelligence or is that just something that you jumped into it? True thousands late nineteen, ninety there wasn't. There wasn't a seal rate. Now we actually have she'll enlisted designator. So when young men go into the shield team jazz as listed seal, they're going straight into a pipeline they go to a bootcamp company for seals Prep Course for seals, and then they go to seal training. When I went in and all the way up until that changed in the late nineties early, two thousands you had to get a regular navy job. I saw they sent you to the regular navy school in a school. You know some people will recognize it as a navy. We call it in any see in army and the marine. Corps. It's Mo- ass. But you get that code go to that school, and then you apply to go to she'll train and so I went to the intelligence school in Virginia before I went, she'll try.

We're sitting at 2.5 and 3%. Un believable. You will never. I don't think we'll ever live to see that again. I don't think so. It's great opportunities to take advantage of it, and I really appreciate the opportunity to call in. Right. Thank you much, Mike. Hey, Fred, Freddy there. Fred. Good afternoon. You're on the air. Oh, the spread. Yeah. Where were you today? I'm good. I was just listening in and and, uh, First of all, I wanted to thank Jim for clarifying. You know, when you buy a home using a home loan You live there And so you know, While I appreciate realtors reaching out to veterans, they need to give the correct information. So, Jim, I appreciate you're correcting them and saying, you know, you gotta live in that thing. It's It's not like you just get to buy whatever property and he was talking about. Quad blacks or whatever. Yeah, you gotta live in one of those apartments. For condos or whatever you want column You can't just buy a building and start putting people in and start making money on that it is for the veteran toe live in a home. And the second caller that was talking about it talking about buying a second home. Yes, you Khun do that, as long as you have the previous one paid off or paid low enough. Where the next house is. Finance fully through the VA you can't go over. There are valid reasons or thereabout. There could be some reasons for that as well. Fred, if you needed special ramps or special things that the current house could not accommodate. Then you can you can show the reason. Four person sing another house. Yeah, No, that's that's correct. There's there's exceptions to every rule. But there's a lot of folks out there now just staring down their guns at the veterans, and I want to make sure that when they do that, I'm good with them trying to To recruit veterans is a client, but they need to I know all the rules and they need to make sure that they're they're not just after the money of the, but they're actually helping those veterans, So I really appreciate that. I also want to mention the combat Veterans Group. I I guess I should apply for that. I sold my motorcycle two years ago. And you know front. I have one for sale. Now my wife would kill me if I got another one. So we'll we'll tell her Christmas is coming. Yeah. I wanted to mention that group in particular because a couple of weeks ago On a Saturday, The Patriot Guard riders came out with a group of folks to the cemetery and I'm telling you, they brought rakes and shovels and pails for water and bleach and everything. And combat vets were one of the groups that came out with them. Had a junior ROTC group. Come out of there were 12 groups and all They came out and they started raking at the cemetery. They started washing down all the monuments with water and bleach and getting them all nice and clean. They went down to the crematorium walls and clean those. I mean, they just did a super job. 125 people I I was so impressed by the fact that they They didn't even argue about social distancing their war their face covering they were. You know, there were 6 ft apart when they do. I mean, it was Jim. It was just amazing, you know, and that's our community. Our community's dumps up for our veterans, and it's It's just been wonderful and then I was interviewed. I think it was Thursday by Channel eight. They're doing a story. Um, and talking about the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day. And I'll tell you a lot of the civilians out there don't understand the difference. And so I explained to her that Memorial Day because we have somebody that wants to put out all the flags on Veterans Day and Memorial Day is where we honor our fallen heroes. Veterans Day is when we are celebrating goes that are still with us. You'll never hear any veterans say Happy Memorial Day. It's not a happy occasion. It's very solemn one. But you'll hear him say Happy veteran's day all the time because we're recognizing those that are still with us. You don't find a couple of points I want to make once again the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association that mic and that group. They do wonderful things and the give away a motorcycle again. There are five of one C three like we are all of the money goes back to that. There's no green there. There's no salaries. That is a great great group and then Mike with benchmark mortgage. They they do a lot of veteran lending. They do a lot for the veterans, and I can't think of a better person to do business with them, then benchmark mortgage when it comes to doing your loans, and the last point Channel eight Has chosen us as their charity for 21 22. Good. So we will be on Channel eight. Quite a bit. We hope And I believe that can really help us. Spread the word for Veterans Transition Resource Center as well as the other groups like Combat Veterans mortgages. SOC their Motorcycle association. Great group of people. We worked with everybody. As you well know, we can't be all things to all people, but we need the resource is in order to try to help our veteran gender families and Again, Stevie M. A with Mike and that group Mike, with benchmark mortgage what a great team were starting to develop here. I agree. And you know, I've always said Nevada Department of Veteran Services. We've got limited staff. We couldn't do the things we do without. Non profit veteran service organizations..

The Loneliness Of The Climate Change Christian

"Years of age Richard. CIZEK always dreamed of being a diplomat brokering agreements and alliances abroad for the United States I have old passport did money for most of his life or Memento worked on Capitol Hill as what he calls a diplomat for God he represented the largest network of Evangelical Christians the National Association of Evangelical the Naet, and we should just add that while the naet represents a wide swath of Evangelical Christians when we use the term evangelical in this episode, we're GonNa mean white evangelicals whose politics dynamics are very different from the Black Evangelical Church spotted Senator Hillary. Clinton is describes his job as being a lobbyist for thirty million evangelicals. Thank you got floppy blonde hair blue eyes elastic sort of face. Growing up in the family farm his mom was a Kennedy Democrat and his dad was a Nixon Republican and so I was always the bridge builder the diplomat in college he protested against the Vietnam War but he also signed up for ROTC and when I marched on Saturdays, my anti-war friends through exodus. CIZEK enjoyed being the kind of person who could move between worlds listen to both sides. But he also felt confused about what he believed in, and so I came home from my third year college to work for college tuition and. I was invited by a friend to a Baptist Church. And I heard an alter call. It didn't know at the time even what an alter call was it actually what is integral where the preacher, the evangelist or the pastor says? Received Jesus Christ as your person saying if you don't. You're turning away. God. You're saying no. To the Creator. In one thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, two, when CISIC became an evangelical that did not mean subscribing to one political party voting Republican that would happen by the end of the decade. More than thirty million Evangelical Christians in America, we will come you governor Ronald Reagan. That's INCISA. Gets a job at the National Association of Evangelical 's It was clear that evangelicals were forced to be reckoned with you know opposing gay rights opposing abortion, but he wants to do more than the family values. Stuff imagines an even bigger role for Christians in politics I wrote a letter to the White House suggesting that the president newly elected. Ronald Reagan. That he ought to give a major speech on the morality of the Soviet Union and nuclear arms. And speechwriters at the White House they called me up and they said we like this come meet with US Ladies and gentlemen the President of the United States. This speech that Reagan gave to size in March of Nineteen ninety-three hue very become one of his most famous. Those of you win the National Association of Evangelical just going to talk about the issues that Christians are known to care about teenage sex pornography abortion and hard drugs. They talk about the Cold War Erica has kept alight the torture freedom to words made the speech. So famous when evil empire because the Soviets. Evil, empire the focus of evil in the modern. World Reagan. Took something that had not been Christian issue and made it. One Reagan was challenging the evangelicals not to sit on the sidelines or you pleased chorus I mean this was like a coup on my part. He was the guy who invited Reagan to speak my credit my street cred with this conservative group that I'd come to work for was established eventually sizing. Became Vice President for government affairs the and it's evangelical started getting more political power. This funny thing happened where non-christians would approach Cizek just to get his support on some piece of legislation and seismic was open will join with the youth the dreaded Aclu to pass the prison rape. Reform Act felt like speaking out on other issues that would actually give evangelical is more clout join with feminist pass. The trafficking victims. Protection Act. And then size, it gets an invitation did he s think hard about? The invitation is to Oxford England for a big conference on global warming. So your desk to get this invitation you automatically you're sure you WANNA take it. Is there any doubt? No no I I again have to calculate and I ask the chair of the board at the time and she says you shouldn't go. Because why? One. skepticism about mainstream science in you know there is this syllogism. Scientists believe. In climate change scientists believe in evolution. So. We don't believe

Richard McSpadden from AOPA on how he got into aviation

"Where did your first interest in aviation start off? Yeah. It came really from my dad when my dad turned it was roughly in in his forties early forties. My mom gave him a present of a flight lesson off and he took that I was about high school college at the time. And he immediately took to it. He just loved it as my mom knew he would and I watched him go through that and saw the planning at the kitchen table and all that and I thought man that that looks like a lot of fun and he encouraged me through the years kind of nudge me to look at flying you thought I would enjoy it thought I would you know be good at it and I'm really thankful that he did that's kind of where it came a little bit late for me in life. But that's kind of where it came from that is a little bit later than most people we talked about. I one of my good friends in college that he was the same way. He entered ROTC with me and his whole goal was I think he wanted to be a lawyer in the Air Force song You Had a scholarship in for like English or something cuz you did really well in school and he decided that he thought this flying thing would be super cool. So 18 plus years later. He still find fighters on active duty package. So I think maybe there's something to it for those of you who are trying to go that route maybe delay that passion. I gotta do this. I gotta do this you won't put as much pressure on yourself and wage. Actually grow into a little bit better and next thing, you know, you're the you're the lead of the of the Thunderbirds. So we've us through just how you're active duty career piece together to get you to kind of where you are, New Jersey. Yeah. So I was ROTC like you were and came out of University of Georgia and went to Advanced Air Force Base in Enid Oklahoma and back that time, you know, you everybody flew to 37th and then everybody Flutie 38 sand somewhere in there. They would decide they had to be far qualified and they would take like whatever persuasion they would make that far qualified and if you made that cut you were able to choose what you want to go fly next. I think they do a lot differently now, but and then it was it was a pretty brutal process everybody knew your rank order of the class and that was publicized well known and they would put the airplanes up that were available and you know pilot number one in the class. What do you want and need to look at the list of all the classes and birth Take whatever class he wanted and our our airplane and then you know on the number two number two, what do you want? Right so through that process. I got very fortunate and I flew the F-15. That's the place. I really wanted to fly. And from there. I flew and kadena and came back and did Holloman Air Force Base for a long time was the F-15 demo pilot for a while really enjoyed that bath and then moved to the ranks. Like a lot of people went back to the schoolhouse top there in the F fifteen for a while fluid Langley for a while and then moved onto the Thousand Birds, you know about about the time. I I think I was an Ops officer at Tyndall and release came out about okay. It's time to hire a new round of Thunderbird pilots. And one of them this year's team lead position. If you're an operations officer and you meet all these calls and you're interested, you know, put your package in and so that's kind of you know in short where my career went. I did have that middle stint. You know when you're on active duty job. Want you to do the career broadening thing. Oh, yeah, and so, you know rightfully so my boss was really trying to look out for my career and he was pushing me to go to the Pentagon and take a staff to her and just thought he didn't want to do that. So I went and found my my own little assignment flying King airs in the Philippines and just had a ball doing that my wife and I went we were I was an assistant at a shame that we had three King airs in the Philippines at the time. So my job was to sort of manage that Fleet and be the chief sort of instructor of you know, the 06 has and the other people that would apply to King air bag and that was just an absolute ball. I just I can't say enough about the king you are and what a fantastic airplane that is you say stuff like that and that makes me go. Yeah, I I've had friends who've done similar type jobs, right and I always say man. I just I learned about all these things the day after I make a decision and go for something else. It's like every significant wage Yeah,

Welcome jackets. Good to have you here. Thank you Robert. Appreciate that glad to be here. You've kind of an entire industry that's really come to be known as performance air conditioning. Vintage Air was founded longtime ago now in nineteen seventy six primarily to serve builders who wanted to bill. Really Cool. Hot Rods Right. Talk about how you got to where you are I. Understand you started rich and early age well, yes. I started reading a hot rod magazine and it was hot rod magazine, an Rod and custom which were once at the time that everybody was reading. It had got me interested in old cars and I was about probably thirteen isn't it? Funny? We're in it always starts Yeah. Well thirteen years old I think so long story short my mom my dad was an air force and he was at this particular time was overseas along so she would take me out looking for old cars driving around we drove by one old junkyard that had some pretty nice cars and for Junkyard, and there was a little Mali sedan sitting right there and so. With that one and that started it really which pay fifty bucks hundred bucks for no one hundred dollars ran and drove off. There's a lot of must have been a nice car. It was decent in Iran in my mom felt that was important. So she said that'd be good one it actually Lebron's than I thought well, mode will be in their law anyway but. What did you put in that thing? Jag. Let Me Guess Flathead v Eight maybe something like that. Yeah. The first walk was a mercury by then the mercury and the flatheads kind of really on their last legs so cheap and a guy out of Mercury, my dad and military, and so I could go out to the base hobby shop at work on it therapies they have the tools and equipment wilmer stuff anyway he was out there and he was pulling that thing out and he was gonna put an old set I'm looking at that thing going he san now I gotta get rid of this thing and I'm going hey, wait a second I ask him what he'd takes Twenty. Five Bucks for so. Two fifty, five key begins Mercury, flat. It sounds like deal and boy that was the bee's knees back. Then there really was water fun car that must have been what happened after those formative years he did some college worker well. And as going along I kept working on our of data as we went along than mercury got lost and I put a pontiac over at bow the eight. Okay. Okay. And I use that to go to school I drove that car was my only car and so yeah I, I went to school studied industrial design. Guy Down College it was Vietnam era so. I joined ROTC after I got out of college I went right into the air force that was pretty ambitious endeavor especially at the time you fly planes her through for a little bit and then I did other stuff when emir force well, it sounds like an interesting stint obviously got out your passion for hot rods did not diminish in the lease no it. Always Hot Rod Guy, was there an a Ha moment that you had that said, he wait a minute I'm going to get serious about this. Well, when I got out of the Air Force, I had to make a decision. I think a lot of people that go in the air force consider staining and making a career out of thought about that for just a second and pretty much decided that I wanted to do. It always wanted to do I told my mom when I was about thirteen or fourteen. I told her not WANNA build parts for Cars I decided. Well, if I wanted to do that, this long should stick with that I started looking around. What can I do at that point? Pete shakes had started a year before that. There was a couple of chassis guys out there now and I've thought well I don't want to go jump in the middle something someone is already doing so look can I do that's new made any backup just a second I had started an air conditioning repair installation sinner right after I got out of the Service in seventy three head that stuff laying around so I thought hey, street rod nationals coming up here in August August load up the van take a bunch of stuff up there and made three unique parts to have up there for that deal were no condensers at that time in the condenser is the part that goes in front of the radiate sure that support that takes up space and. A hot rod that could be a sore thumb and of course, in those days, it was all about thirty four. It's some people would say it's still. Also, we'll get to that I designed and had a company make me condenser company up in Minnesota. Make me a condenser that was vertical so it would fit that format because there was nothing like that available number one that's right that narrow narrow grill and the yeah it had to fit just right? Yeah. There were narrow ones but they laid down the width of the cars that were going on now. That's right. So we did that and then nine designed a compressor mounting bracket for a small black Chevy because there were more sponsorship, he's going in at that time anything else. So the hoods were narrow on hot rod so it couldn't hang out sides like they did in the newer cars. So that was the second thing we did that bracket and then the third thing we did is I made a mold. been working with my hands long enough that I just figured hands I can make them all and I can make my own plastic evaporator out in. That's right and put the coralline and I'll have a unique evaporator to fit of thirty, two

"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.

These issues got frustrated with those things that I wanted to be a part of the solution to solve a lot of these problems and I figured out with early that politics. Politics is a way to do it. That's the way that you are invited to the table and Your brother's decisions are being made, but we're definitely GONNA dive into all the amazing work that you have done, but you are a laser in so many ways. You became one of the first black woman to graduate from the historically. All Mel Virginia Military Institute, which just Kudos to you I did Air Force Junior ROTC in high school. That was enough for me, but what made you apply? And what were you thinking when you got accepted? So I applied to Virginia. Military Institute because I was watching the Virginia Military Institute. Supreme Court decision on TV. Them is one of the top military colleges in this country, and they spent millions of dollars to keep women out of doors. And when I was in that high school classroom I remember hearing men in the class. They think like women don't belong where fear your. We can't run as fast as hard and we're not as smart. And I remember hearing justice. GINSBURG say basically that women can do all things if given the opportunity and I agree. And Tokyo's men that I'm just smart and just as capable and powerful as any man in that class, and I mentioned. So is that that time that my best friend? He was going to go to west point, and he walked up to me, and he said I'm going to go with you when you go to them. I because I want to be there to watch you when you fail. Even dough right? We were friends. Don't forget them still female and therefore interior. So I looked at him, and said challenge accepted. And, so he went to BMI, so did I and other meal in our class. And when they got their head shaped ball, so did I and they gave me a management for 'cause. The might have changed any of his standards for women. And actor years of marching wedding and bleeding beside over a thousand male cadet. Out of the other two men who with me to be a month, I'm the only one who of us walk across that. Virginia military stage, and so that's what I would lie and that's why I'm happy that I graduated succeeded. Oh my goodness, so we know that was not the first time he had to deal with men. Telling you that you couldn't do something. It wasn't your turn. You also experienced this. When you ran for office when he ran for Virginia. Delegate, you were not the quote. Unquote preferred candidates by Iran. Anyway you did our emerge boot camp. You are my emerge sister and you also ran your campaign while pregnant with twins. So tell everyone just the whole story about when made you WANNA run running for office while pregnant and just the entire experience of knowing that you were the best candidate to represent your district. Yeah, absolutely, so I decided to run in two thousand seventeen, because you know I was just tired of the partisan politics and the divisive rhetoric that was happening, and I always thought. How could we lack someone so bigoted and racist and xenophobic and homophobic to the leader of the free world and I knew then that we needed a response to talk. We needed a response design of politics that were happening in Richmond where they were trying to pass. A transactional ultra sank town bill and they put politically. Politically motivated and medically unnecessary restrictions on women's reproductive health care, or they weren't fully funding education in a way that makes sense, and so I decided to do something about it, and being one of the first public defenders ever like Virginia. General, assembly when I was practicing as a public defender I just saw so many of the inequities in our system, and how we have a two tier criminal justice here, Virginia one for the wealthy, and by themselves out of prison in one for everyone else. And, so I knew I could continue to be you know a community organizer in foster mom, and do all these things to help the community and fight against that laws, or I could become a delegate impact. Good one. So those are the things that really put the fire and leave me in order to for office while pregnant was not just one with two baby. And you know run against what was pretty much. Thought is as the establishment candidate who had all the endorsements? He outraced me four to one, and it didn't matter because I knew that I was the better candidate, and even though I could. I would be outraged. I knew that I would never outworked.
