Pennsylvania Senate Candidate Kathy Barnette Sets the Record Straight

"But Kathy, I like you. I've known you for, I don't know, 6, 7 years ever since you came on Fox with a national security moms. And so I've spoken about the latest attacks against you with somebody who served in the military in the reserves and knows these records. So I want to give you an opportunity in front of millions of people to answer these questions, put them to bed and then we'll see who wins this race. So in the records that you've released from your campaign yesterday in a book about you, there are questions as to officer candidacy school. What your MOS was two months of additional federal service that we don't know what it was for, whether you actually worked for the CID or were of VO a wheeled vehicle mechanics. I want to just give you the opportunity. Talk about your military record and clarify anything that you think needs clarification. Yeah, listen, my military records are right there in front of people now. Yesterday, let me just say, I've been running for 13 months. And only yesterday did mainstream media want to even talk to me. And I've been in a statistical tie for first place for at least four weeks, right? So for at least four weeks, I should have been on their radar, except they just wanted to talk about the two rich men and pretend there was no one else in this race. So the only people who have been derelict in their duty here has been mainstream media because I've been here for 13 months and at least in a statistical tie for first place for the last four weeks. But in regards to my military records, I served three years in the army reserves and I was assigned to the CID, the criminal investigation detachment. My MOS was 71 Lima when I came out as a administrative specialist three years there moved back to Alabama and third with the National

How the Addition of Finland and Sweden Would Change NATO

"NATO is about to expand to Finland and Sweden. You were the allied supreme commander of NATO. Are you going like this? Hooray, we got the fans in or are you saying, oh my God, the finished border with Russia expands my theater of operations by 50%. It is two thumbs up. And if I had other thumbs to offer, I would make them. We have got to get the fins in the Swedes in to NATO. That big border is a tactical and strategic advantage for NATO. It allows us to move our bases our troops are jets up into that northern Flank. It gives us real purchase into the Arctic. It is a very significant chunk of real estate. We want it. So geography matters. Number two, these are warfighting nations combined their defense budget is around 15 billion. That's about a fourth of the Russian defense budget. So we're adding real money and resources and then finally hue, the Finns have a big army. They have the largest number of artillery pieces in Europe.

Ukraine Has Repelled Russia's Attempt to Cross Donbas River

"There is a story in the telegraph of Great Britain today. An entire battalion and again, I am not, I'm a civilian civilian, meaning I don't even know how to spell civilian, much less anything going on in the army. And the Russian army. But I know that when a battalion gets wiped out, trying to cross a river, that's not good for morale. So they tried to cross the river. It's in the telegraph, I tweeted it out. You should be following me on Twitter. And they got pushed back 20 clicks from 30 clicks, which in my mind I quickly estimate to be about 18 miles because the ten K is 6.2 miles and so 30 clicks must be about 18.6 miles. So Ukraine's are pushing back the Russians all over the place. They're in a static front in the Donbass, which is, you know, I couldn't draw the Donbass on a map. I know where Ukraine and Russia is, but it's part of Ukraine. And I couldn't get it right now where it is roughly. It doesn't get to Odessa. And only a part not a God, this is from the financial time. Military briefing can Ukraine push the Russian army from the country. Even that being written is something that's extraordinary.

The Rise of Leon Trotsky & Communism

"Trotsky was perhaps the most intellectual of the bunch Of the communist revolutionaries that overthrew and took over Russia The truth is they never had even close to majority of the population behind them About 20% They didn't even have a majority of the quote unquote workers behind them And even though a number of them would serve time in Siberia the fact is that their efforts were not taken seriously enough until it was too late Trotsky was among the most vicious of them but they were all quite vicious When Lennon took over as I said he would soon get 6 relatively shortly thereafter Stalin would eventually replace Lenin through a number of connivance and assassinations and Trotsky would originally become the head of the military The Red Army but he fell out of favor Because he had a different ideological view of Marxism than did Stalin Stalin's view was more akin to a strong man and a single political party the Communist Party which would be the state the party is the state And that party would be a permanent fixture That would in essence ensure that the Marxist economic system and all the rest of it would be enshrined and be complied with

K. T. McFarland: How Does Putin Read the Current Conflict?

"KT and I talk every Friday we talk national security. We talk Trump. We talk scotch. One thing we haven't talked about. I'm looking at a post of yours online. It's as Biden once regime change. U.S. Intel brags about targeting Russian generals for Ukraine kills. Lindsey Graham and sis on Putin's unconditional surrender. They may be right, but they are unintentionally goading Putin into expanding the war, question mark. Let's talk about that for a second. Putin doesn't look stable. These things may be the kind of finger in the chest things that set them off. What do you think, KT? Yeah. It's not what's right or what's just. It's what's likely to happen. Should Ukraine win? Yes. Should Russia lose shift? Should Putin be kicked out of absolutely. But what's likely to happen? Lindsey Graham says, well, there's no negotiated solution that we want. It's either unconditional surrender. But how does Putin read this? He reads it a couple of ways. One, he's been in power so long that he identifies himself as Russia. So when somebody says regime change and when it looks like they're helping target Russian generals, he looks at that as an assault against the Russian homeland. And for that, the Russian vaccine says you can use whatever weapons you want. Weapons of asset strikes and nuclear weapons is if somebody is coming after the Russian homeland. And number two, who knows how stable he is. He's been, he's made miscalculations throughout. This is a different Vladimir Putin. So 20 years, he's really had a very bad hand at poker, but he's played it really well. This is the first time that he's miscalculated on his army on Ukrainian resistance. What would happen with NATO? And so he's now facing a very sort of back up against the wall position.

"Is the director of research and investigations for that superlative organization judicial watch. Chris Farrell, welcome in studio. Great to be with you, Seth. Thank you. You've been on the show multiple times. You've been on my newsmax show for those who are just accidentally tuning in now or have found us on Salem TV. Would you just for a couple of seconds talk about your national security credentials, what you did in uniform before you joined your judicial watch. I was commissioned as a military intelligence officer in the U.S. Army, specifically as a counterintelligence officer. And I served in that role doing mostly counter espionage work, investigations, running double agent operations and also commanding the army's surveillance team. We did physical technical and aerial surveillance of counterintelligence suspects, but also in support of clandestine human intelligence operations. I then went on to actually cross strain and besides being a can respond to case officer. I became a clandestine human intelligence case officer. And so I have a foot in each world in the world of human intelligence, both countering bad guys who are trying to spy against us, but then also in their field of human intelligence, which is us trying to have persons from foreign countries provide intelligence to U.S. to U.S.

Radical Left Organizations Encourage the Targeting of SCOTUS Homes

"Yesterday we talked about the group rise up for abortion, which is really just a front for a shadowy revolutionary Communist Party group. A Maoist organization founded in the 60s by bob, avakian. Now, interestingly enough, some on the left don't like that group because they call it a cult. Which seems very apropos. Now, another group that's actually getting probably more attention because they were the ones that actually doxxed the 5 out of the 6 conservative justices, Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, is a group called Ruth sent us. Ruth sent us is asking activists to target Supreme Court Justices who may overturn roe V roe V wade with demonstrations at their private homes. Now, can we just state it? As a simple, clean fact here that you should not protest at private homes. You should not confront or get in their faces as Maxine water says, when people are out in public with their families, this is not appropriate. If you don't like somebody, you vote them out of office. If you don't like somebody, you can go on Twitter and say something mean and nasty to them. That's fine. And there might actually be free speech on Twitter moving forward with Elon Musk taking down. You do not, and I repeat, again, do not protest at private homes. I think it's just important to say that it's idiotic. It's stupid. If you're a conservative and you're considering protesting in front of, I don't know, justice Kagan's house because you think it's respect that she or one of her clerks were the leaker. Don't do it. Stop. It looks bad.

The Supreme Court is coming for us next this moment has to be a call to arms. She followed that up with. We will not surrender our rights without a fight, a fight to victory. Now, what makes this particularly appalling is if you contrast mayor lightfoot's tweets with that of her tweets around January 6th, 2021. During which she tweeted, I am in disbelief with what is unfolding in D.C. right now. President Trump and his enablers incited this violence, shame on every elected official in Congress and elsewhere who fomented this anti democratic insurrection by extremists. This is not democracy. This is a disgrace. So what's good for the goose should be good for the Gander here, miss

"That. family. We're talking to the author of 12 seconds in the dark, a police officer's firsthand account of Brianna Taylor raid from sergeant Mattingly you mentioned just now that you're just trying to do your job sergeant Mattingly. I just want to ask you one more question before I encourage everybody to read your book. I presume you retired or you've left the force right now. Tell me how did your colleagues who are still in the force, Friends you have in other jurisdictions. I mean, 'cause I'm a civilian, but I served in the British Army, but I've trained thousands, thousands and thousands of law enforcement officers across the country, local state, federal. And I just don't know how you guys go to work anymore. How you put on the badge, strap on the gun, and go to work when the mayor, the local commissioner, doesn't have your back and when you are prayed to political enemies that can ruin the life of your whole family, what is your message to those officers who are still in the bag? Well, it's tough because people say, man, would you do it again? And I say, yes, I would do my career again because I enjoyed it. I loved it. Would I start over now as a new guy doing it? Probably not for the simple fact that, like you said, there's just no support from upper command, especially if you're in a liberal city like lovo is and like all the main cities, you're already behind the 8 ball, just trying to do the right thing and to pull the laws that are on the book. So I would tell them we need you, we have to have you. You're the one holding the line. We appreciate you and I hope you continue to do it because we do need you as America. And that's the whole point in the book. It isn't about John. It isn't about just my situation. This is hopefully a wake-up call to America to say, hey, if we continue to travel down this path, if we keep going the direction we're going and chasing off all the good cops and prosecute in the ones who are just doing their jobs, you're going to get the bottom of the barrel. We're going to be what we were in Detroit in New Orleans in the 80s. And you're going to have corruption to the level you've never seen, and that's not what you want, and that's not what America

"Chronicles, I'm Greg corumba. Our guest in this edition is PJ doll. A U.S. Army air corps veteran of the Pacific theater in World War II. Mister Dahl served in the 475th fighter group, and later served many years in the U.S. Air Force, earning the rank of colonel. Born in Saskatchewan, Canada, Dahl moved to Seattle with his family before his second birthday, and was raised in that area. From a young age, Dahl recalls having an interest in flying. Here he remembers reading about the great red baron and other heroes of the air. My father was a diesel engineer for a tugboat company in Seattle and every summer he was executive there, but every summer he would take we would haul oil to Alaska in those days they didn't have any oil up there and now of course they're probably not like crazy, but we would haul two bars up there and I would go along with humans as Euler had to oil the engines and these lenses. And then I had a I had a magazine and I was always reading about the red bear and all those that Pope magazines and stuff. That's my only interest in aviation I wouldn't fly before that. After Dahl enlisted in the army National Guard, his unit was recalled in response to the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor. Dahl was then moved to a base in Tacoma, where he was able to earn his high school diploma. When I was in high school as a junior, a lot of us joined the National Guard there was a 41st infantry division. They got recalled to hostilities starting to get going, they called that unit into active duty. Into, I was in Seattle to go into high school there. And they went, we recalled active duty, and we were stationed at fort Lewis Washington, which is adjacent to the town of Tacoma, which is just south of Seattle. And I was able to go to night school in Tacoma to get my finish my high school education and I was able to go and graduate with my high school class in Seattle in 1939. While at the base, Dahl was informed of an opportunity to apply for aviator cadet training. He was instantly intrigued and began working toward the qualifications needed for that assignment. The reason I got into aviation cadet training was that being a member of the 41st infantry division we were at on maneuvers in fort Lewis Washington write adjacent to that is mccord Air Force Base where they had the airplanes flying of course. And we came in from a maneuver one day after being out in the field for about four or 5 days and rigging wet from The Rain and one thing and other digging foxholes and.

So I've just never <Speech_Female> been back. And <Speech_Female> that's one <Speech_Female> thing I really urge people <Speech_Female> to <Speech_Female> fight. <Speech_Female> You know, if you bought toothpaste <Speech_Female> and you hated the flavor, you <Speech_Female> wouldn't quit brushing your <Speech_Female> teeth forever. You <Speech_Female> would just try a new flavor. <Speech_Female> So if you went to <Speech_Female> a psychiatrist and you <Speech_Female> didn't like medication <Speech_Female> go see a psychologist, <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> go seek out equine <Speech_Female> therapy, whatever it <Speech_Female> is, try yoga. <Speech_Female> There is something <Speech_Female> that <Speech_Female> will <Speech_Female> work for the vast <Speech_Female> majority of people. <Speech_Female> So don't give up until <Speech_Female> you find it <SpeakerChange> if you are struggling <Speech_Male> with mental <Speech_Male> illness.

"I will be able to go with him to his medical appointments. I will be able to have my household goods shipped there and keep my health insurance when I leave active duty. But of course, love is a big part of it. And sometimes the heart, the heart wants what it wants. And isn't always terribly rational. But there was also a part of me that felt an obligation to Brian as a fellow soldier. The ethos of leaving no fallen comrade behind. Entangled up in this you hear sometimes about politicians, there have been a couple of well-known politicians who have divorced their wives while their wives were getting treatment for breast cancer and it leaves such a nasty taste in your mouth. You think, who does that? How could you abandon somebody when they're going through a medical issue like that? And so Brian, it wasn't like he was just born a jerk. He had been severely wounded in service of our country and needed help to recover to heal from that wound that unfortunately in that those early days of the war, he just wasn't getting from the military. And so part of me did stay with him out of that sense of obligation to try to help him recover. We'll talk more about the story and how it developed in a very positive way eventually when we come back with Caleb Williams on veterans chronicles. I'm Greg joined today in studio by Kayla Williams, veteran of the Iraq War, 101st airborne division in the U.S..

"I guess this week on veterans chronicles is Kayla Williams, she is a veteran of the U.S. Army, an Iraq War veteran served in the 101st airborne division. She's the author of two different books. One is, love my rifle more than you, young and female in the U.S. Army. The other is plenty of time when we get home. Love and recovery in the aftermath of war. Kayla, thank you very much for your time today. Thanks for having me. Let's start with your decision to join the army. It wasn't your original plan. I do everything backwards. So I actually went to college got my undergraduate degree, worked for a couple of years, did all the things you're supposed to do in your early 20s, had a steady boyfriend, bought a car, even bought a house. And then I lost my job and was kind of flailing around trying to figure out what to do next. I wanted money for graduate school. I wanted to challenge myself. I got my undergraduate in English literature, reading books is what I do for fun. It's my favorite thing, so it kind of felt like I cheated. They gave me a college degree for doing my hobby. And I wanted to do something outside of my comfort zone. I felt like I was digging myself a rut, just doing what I was supposed to do and not choosing any of it, just kind of rolling along. And so the military was away for me to get money for college, genuinely challenge myself and also give back to the larger community. My mom was a single mom when I was a kid and we were on food stamps a few times. So we're paying that debt to society. It was really important to me. And learning any language was important to you as well. Yeah, when I started looking at potential jobs, I found that the army would pay me to learn a foreign language instead of me having to pay somebody else to teach me one. So I thought that was a really great opportunity. And I got you some expertise in the Middle East as well. Correct. Yeah, it was just computer generated number, random chance needs the army that I ended up in Arabic as opposed to Korean or Chinese, the other two big languages when I started my training. And it was while I was learning Arabic at the defense language institute that 9 11 happened. And it became immediately clear that my military career was going to be very different than it might have been otherwise. It was no longer a question of whether or not I would ever go to war just when and where. And when were you sent to Iraq? I was part of the initial invasion of Iraq in March of 2003 as part of the 101st airborne division air assault. And a couple months later, when you met your eventual husband, correct? Yes..

"Welcome veterans chronicles. I'm greg columbus our guest this week. Is clint rochet. He's a veteran of the us army. Who served in both afghanistan and iraq. He is also the recipient of the medal of honor for his heroism in the battle of cam dash in afghanistan in two thousand nine as he refused to leave the battlefield without recovering multiple soldiers who gave their lives that day. That harrowing story is still ahead but we began our conversation by discussing the impressive legacy of military service in rome As family you know. I you know we had almost three generations of of men in my family that serves starting with my grandfather in world. War two then move into my dad done two tours in vietnam and then both my oldest brothers oldest went into the army and my second oldest one in the marines so growing up. You know we're always kind of surrounded by military service even though not a whole lot talked about a especially between my father and my grandfather but what did it talked about and what really stuck was at that commitment to service to Serves one nation. You know do it more than just for yourself. This is the greatest country in the world. So that's what they were doing it for and listen to their stories of you know it wasn't these gory bloodbath of a battle but it was the friendships. They made the lifelong commitments to two other. Men that they'd serve with in their tunes and unit my grandfather. Actually he joined when he was seventeen due to the fact that his oldest brother actually got drafted originally for world war but his brother was the only one that was old enough to do anything legal on the ranch so granddad kind of swapped identities back then and took his place and originally came in as a cavalryman to train horses. Grandad used to up ride rodeo back in northern california but unfortunately as world war two kicked off the army made that transition from horses and calvary to armor So granddad ended up being a combat engineer. Going into the end of the war Landed on just two days after the invasion and followed pat and all the way through and dad like i said done two tours in nam and you know. Listen to the stories of my oldest brother in fact I flew out to New york when he got out of the army out of fort drum. And i got to see like right as he was transitioning out of the army and the camaraderie with him and his buddies now is just on that friendship that teamwork and that commitment to something more than yourself You know sold..

Greatest satisfaction over those four years were was the culture change that we created and it was really The mindset both of our army and of army medicine of the focus on improving once health of taking healthcare outside of the bricks and mortar hospital and into the life space where you live labor and love and so i always said you have five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes in a year and we realized that if we only focused on when a patient came to us. That's about one hundred minutes that we could impact their health and all of those other minutes are outside of the bricks and mortar of our healthcare facility and so we took our behavioral health. We took our physical therapists dieticians and we embedded them into the units. We did habitual relationships so we could really focus on prevention and keeping people well and then Having a entire care system with the continuum of care that was focused on health and wellness. Of course general. Horo is also a trailblazer as the first female nominated to be army surgeon. General jojo says she recognizes how her position impacted not just the country. But the entire world you know. Being the first of anything. I think comes with tremendous responsibility because i always felt like. It's not so much being the first. I just didn't want to be the last. Because i really believe that anybody is the first whether it's a male or female you are setting the pathway for others to follow and so served as the first female in walter reed In ninety eight years it dated back to the civil war and so was the first female. I non physician serving a certain general when i got selected. I got a call. I'll never forget because deployed in afghanistan and it was from the united kingdom one of my colleagues and he said i want to congratulate you on being selected. How does it feel to know the entire world is going to watch to see you succeed or fail. And i remember holding the phone thinking a cab not sure. This is a congratulatory. Call that what it did for me. Is it opened my lens and it made me realize that what the united states does is very important on the global platform. And when i was meeting with the leaders from and then some france especially the israeli surgeon. General general greis at that time he said. Patty wanna know what the conversation was when you got selected sir. General said. I'd love to know and he said it was the shot that was fired around the world. He said the entire you know.

"They were back in the united states receiving Level for care at our premier medical centers. I think what it says is that we have highly trained highly educated highly motivated healthcare workers that are willing to on the cloth of our nation. Place themselves in harm's way and take care of our warfighters and what our warfighters are able to place themselves in harm's way because they know that they have the best military medical care that will be there. If they're injured. I think what weighed on me. The most during the years of serving as certain general was this need to have the transformation across all of our medicine as we moved away from a disease model of care to assist them for health and we changed every aspect of the way that we delivered. And i knew that if we did not improve the health of our service members and the health of our families then we would not be honoring the commitment to those that were racing. The right the right hand there was also the strategic bone ability that only twenty five percent of our youth seventeen to twenty three were eligible to serve armed forces and so we had to really ensure that we were helping to improve the health of our nation and so our vision with actually to improve the health of our nation by improving the health of our army and it was this transformation that i think drove all of the actions that we took during those four years horror hosts or four years as surgeon general of the us army and she is very proud of a culture shift that she was able to oversee in army medicine.

"Hero what she marvels that most however is how all americans banded together in the immediate aftermath of the attacks and in preparing for the war that followed. I think what sticks with me the most from that day it was this one moment and you know in movies when everything slows down like really slow action and you watched it. There was a moment where that's what it was and i was looking and i thought this is what war feels like. Our nation has been attacked. Our powerhouse of our country has been attacked. And i had this piece in me of knowing we're going to be okay that the reason why we're called the united states of america is that we will unite together and fight this enemy. It was An incredible feeling that is still with me today and then later that night Seeing the firefighter standing on top of the pentagon roof in watching the flag unfurl. It was the most emotional feeling but it made me realize that enemies may think that we were vulnerable but what they miss is regardless of her political differences or ethnicity in our religion. We all come together because of our beliefs as americans and it. It just has stuck with me since that day. We'll have much more of general horror. Hose story in just a moment here on veterans chronicles. This is veterans chronicles. I'm greg columbus our guest. This week is retired. Us army lieutenant general patricia horror aho. She became the first woman ever to serve as surgeon general of the us army. We've discussed are excellent preparation for the green ramp disaster and her rapid response to the nine eleven terrorist attack at the pentagon in the months and years that followed horror hosts steadily earned greater and greater leadership roles including the commanded. Fort belvoir walter reed and other very prominent military medical facilities but regardless of the assignment horror. Who says her mission and goals remained very clear who later went on to command at fort. Belvoir walter reed and other very prominent military medical facilities but regardless of the assignment horror says her mission and goals were very clear so my very first assignment. Commanding was for belvoir virginia. And then after that i had the honour of commanding while to reed army medical center and then at madigan army medical center and then standing up a twenty two state health system in the western region and then eventually commanding the medical command. And i would say what was important to maybe some commonality with leadership throughout all of that was one creating a vision. That inspired that Showed a pathway of how you improved quality of care how you improved outcomes how you improved readiness. It was also Focusing on people and leader developing and ensuring that you manage talent appropriately. I think the third would be Really understanding that. It was organizational readiness. And that you had to inspire people to want to come together in a way that allowed the mission to not only be accomplished but to be extremely successful so we would come up with tag lines. Because i think that rallies people together so it's a certain general. It was serving to heal honored to serve. And when i was commanding in the west it was the best was in the west because we were going from a six state region to twenty two and we wanted to have everybody cutting unify around a particular Kind of rally cry. But i think the most important is vision and then Holding people accountable and having clarity of what that mission is for horror. Aho her time at the walter reed army. Medical center will always hold a special place. She says the strong morale and determination the soldiers returning from the war..

"The us army. Who's joining us today. To talk about some awesome like me but it's also i'm sure getting folks the chance to find out how they can serve their country. I'll well first and foremost zach. I really appreciate you have a meter this morning this afternoon. It's definitely a pleasure. So yeah the the responsibilities that was going on with the army with me initially had started off in of as a pharmacy technician and In september i'll be in for eighteen years of so they basically asking like. Hey what do you want to do for you likely in the last three years of your army career and i was like i wanna be a recruiter. I wanna be able to give back to the community and so here. I am now today and it would market the army. Yeah and. i'm glad that you're with us today. And there are plenty of things going on right now. That people can be a part of to help not only of course in the pandemic. But there's a great deal of other opportunities that you can pretty much probably sit down and explain to people for several hours on end but you know you know normally you would be out there talking to people in person. None of us have really been doing that. In our the pandemic. So how are you reaching out in speaking with folks who are interested in possibly joining the army is definitely been as has been so hard to be able to you. We literally have to think out the box with the whole the different Protocols due to the pandemic one of the biggest things. Is you know like the colleges the high schools. They're not allowing us on campus. And it's understandable. You know we all. Have you know people who you know parents who have children. You're like hey you know got to ensure that they're safe thing being able to keep that distance so the way that we do go about it. Is we reach out to the students applicants whoever it is whoever that should be through social media like facebook instagram whatever platforms that are available. And can you tell us a bit about you. Know if i was in front of you physically right now which what opportunities i might be able to be part of in the army..

"us army" Discussed on Finding Mastery: Conversations with Michael Gervais

"Now, this week's conversation is with retired US army major Matt Brady in Matt is a graduate of the United States military academy at West Point world class where he was ranked number one of nine hundred forty cadets in leadership for seven consecutive semesters. And then he went onto graduate in the top five percent of. Class. So that that speak something to the way that he organizes his craft in the preparation for his craft. Matt deployed twelve times to both Iraq and Afghanistan in commanded forces during multiple high stakes and pressure conflicts, including the third infantry division charge into Baghdad back in two thousand three and then operation redwing, and you might remember that name. And that was the really intense seal mission depicted in the movie lone survivor and his awards include the air medal for combat valor. In both Iraq and Afghanistan in the bronze star medal and Matt retired from the army in late two thousand sixteen after two decades of service to the United States, and there's so much to impact in this conversation. It is textured it is rich, and I'm sure many of you are familiar with the lone survivor story. But if you're not just a quick moment. And look into that. I mean, it's unbelievable. And so this conversation really has much to do with his decisions there. And while he was fortunate to survive that mission the decisions that he made and he was faced within the experience that he had the combination of that has lived with him forever. And that is the focal point of this conversation. What is it like how do we prepare? And how do we adjust to situations that are incredibly challenging, and I don't know this is near impossible to prepare for what he experienced like all of us. We have events in our lives that are near impossible to prepare for. So the preparation only gets a certain way, and then that leap of faith to adjust to the unpredictable unfolding unknown for some of us. It's like this crazy leap and for others. It's like, okay, I'm gonna take that next step because I prepared and I've trained. Myself to deal with the unpredictable unfolding unknown. And so this conversation really points back to philosophy it points back to values points back to really clear understanding of who one is and who wants to become in this case. It's him. Now as you're going through this conversation. You might just wanna take a moment and put it into some context in your own life. What is a or what are the difficult decisions that you've had to make in your own life. And then, you know, use that to bounce off this conversation. So while his story is rich the whole point is to really re anchor into your own life. So that you can use this to pivot to adjust to grow and one last note here is the first half of this conversation was in person, and I was enjoying it so much it was so rich. I was so enthralled in it both of us completely lost track of time. And so we had a finish the conversation on the phone. So you'll notice the change in audio quality about halfway through. So with that. Let's jump right into this week's conversation with Matt Brady, Matt how're you doing good? Thank you for being here. It's my pleasure. Well, that's really good. Okay. How'd you know? How'd you know, that you wanted to be in the military to serve maybe the white race say for you? But how did you know? Yeah. I guess I took my my grandfather. My father's example. Both of them had really unique military stories. My. My grandfather was the from England, and and he served during the battle of Britain. So if you recall from history, the Germans have his era -fensive, they're bombing London in my grandfather. And my grandmother my mom's a little girl that time during the during this this blitzkrieg on the city, and he served in a unit called the home guard in London, which was a rag tag militia, no weapons ammunition, but my grandfather's job in this militia was to put on a pair roller skates and take a hockey stick and two or three buddies skate around.
