Rick Scott: A Lot of People Don't Want to Talk About the Tough Issues

"Feel that most Republicans on Capitol Hill are comfortable talking about this? Because it seems as if some members are just always playing into the left's narrative when it comes to these issues. I think in politics, I think a lot of people don't want to talk about the tough issues. But that's what we get elected to do, right? And we've got to talk about the tough issues. We've got to lead, and not everybody's going to agree with this. And you know what? They could be right. So let's go talk about it and talk me out. I mean, for example, we have CRT classes at West Point. We have 6 million man hours in the military that have been dedicated to this stuff. And so now it's at the top levels of our military. Right. No, it's pervasive. This woke mentality is pervasive. It's in our companies. It's in our military. So our military has one job. People will be the most lethal force in the world to be able to defend our freedoms. That's their job. Our federal government really has two roles in my opinion. Make sure you have a military, the confederates, and do a good job on commerce, and get to leave them daylights out of our lives. Especially when the federal level, yes. But government should be as local as you can. Yes. People come to me all the time say, well, the federal government ought to do this. How did that become a federal issue? I might care about the issue, but that should be done at the city, the county or the state, it shouldn't be a federal issue.

Jim Hanson and Sebastian Discuss Army Gen. Mark Milley's Stupidity

"Listen to that obese individual, lecturing us on the latest talking points of critical race theory. Play cut. On the issue of critical race theory, et cetera, I'll obviously have to get much smarter on whatever the theory is. But I do think it's important, actually. For those of us in uniform, to be open minded and be widely read, and the United States military academy is a university. And it is important that we train and we understand, and I want to understand white rage. And I'm white. And I want to understand it. I just have to ask you just the obvious question. This is the most senior military official in America, still is the most inefficient in America despite the surrender of Afghanistan and the $80 billion worth of equipment and training left there. How stupid is this man? He just literally said at the Senate hearing. I don't know what CRT is. But it's good and it needs to be taught at West Point. I mean, that is like imbecile. That's a double digit IQ. Am I missing something, Jim? No, I think he must have had a parachute not open at some point and bounced on his head. And the worst thing is, I agree, we should study our enemies. The problem is he's not talking about studying CRT, which is racist and studying these other things as if they were something to be avoided. He's talking about teaching them as doctrine and now what we've done is we've created a military where everybody no longer thinks they're on one team. He's broken them in down by identity politics. So you got your gay wing, you're trans wing and you're black wing and all of this. And everybody now thinks the other person is cheating them. So instead of one teen pulling together where the only color anybody bleeds is green, you've got identity politics, woke garbage and nobody's now scared of the same lunch meat guy there. Also said that China seems to be getting more aggressive. I wonder why.

It's Election Day in Pennsylvania; Who Holds the Edge?

"Morning, glory, America, don't go high candidate who you at live inside the beltway on this election day in Pennsylvania, Tuesday, may 17th, polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. today in Pennsylvania. I've heard all over the state from Scranton and all the way up in the northern northeastern corner down to Philadelphia. All the way over to Pittsburgh and up to Erie, and I encourage everyone to go and vote for David McCormick for the United States Senate. I also think Lou Bart, let barletta is a much easier to elect candidate. I don't think mister mastriano can win. I know David McCormick can win. I don't think any of the other people can win if you're going to vote for Kathy. Barnett, or Doctor Oz, I think you were throwing your vote away because they can't beat John fetterman. And this election matters so much because if McCormick doesn't get the nomination, we're going to have a very hard time getting the Senate back. In Republican hands and then confirmation of Supreme Court Justices will remain in Chuck Schumer's hands. The opportunity to break the filibuster will remain in Chuck Schumer's hand. It's vitally important to elect David McCormick. The bronze star recipient graduate of West Point grew up outside of Pittsburgh. He built business in Pittsburgh, built jobs in Pittsburgh. He's a Pittsburgh. And so this goes against migraine to say nice things about a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. I mean, steelers forever with McCormick, but Dave McCormick's a great American and when you're a West Point graduate and you receive the bronze star for valor in the 82nd airborne in the first Gulf War, you can trust the character.

Who Is Charlie Kirk?

"Here, believe it or not, because not everybody has access to all the awesome videos and content that you're producing. But who is Charlie Kirk? Who are you? And how in the world did you get to the point where you're at at 28 years old? It depends who you ask, I guess. There's a couple of different answers to that. First of all, I gave my life to the lord in 5th grade, most important decision. I made in my life. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. So in the state of Illinois, now I'm going to have to now hear my Illinois deal. You guys all know this. You see in Illinois, we have term limits, a little different than most states, one term in office, one term in jail. See? You guys get it. They get it, Missouri. I'll tell you what. All right, how about see when we ask for our governor's cell number? So born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. Started this whole effort to try to save America and save western civilization. When I was 18 years old, I'm wanted to get into West Point, didn't get in. It was the best thing that never happened to me. God has a plan for all of us. And I thought I knew what I was doing, and I didn't. And so I started this effort with no money, no connections, no idea what I was doing. When I was 18 years old in the suburbs of Chicago, and I felt a need, a deep urge that the people of this nation needed to wake up, especially students in young people. I felt that we were given this incredible constitutional republic, and we were making decisions. Self inflicted decisions to turn this country away from righteousness and towards decay and despair. And again, it was a clumsy first couple of years starting at turning point USA at some amazing support along the way. The lord really had his hand on this organization and has had his hand on this organization all along and ten years later. We are now the nation's premier organization for young people, pursuing and defending American values on high school and college campuses across the country.

Trump Endorses Dr. Oz in Pennsylvania Senate Race

"There are three other candidates. Each one of whom has been on the radio show and each one of them impresses me in a different way. Most recently, Dave McCormick was, I mean, the bronze star recipient, and an 82nd airborne guy in West Point. He drips credentials out, do the other two. But Doctor Oz, what was president Trump thinking? I don't know. And if you look at the statement, it's really sort of telling. It says that he supported him because he was, you know, he told him that he looked like he was in good health. And that he was a celebrity on television. Then he lists his hard work degree in New York Times bestselling books. Those are not things that matter to conservatives in Pennsylvania. Look, these voters are jacked up to turn out to vote in May. And we even more so in November.

Former Green Beret Rep. Michael Waltz on the Ukraine Crisis

"Talk to us about the last 5 weeks because the Ukrainians, they stood up to the plate and their use of irregular tactics. With one anti tank missile on the back of every rifleman, talked us about the performance on both sides as well. One, the Ukrainians have been trained by green berets and that's what we specialize in around the world is embedding with militias, tribes, allied military, and making them better. I think you're seeing 8 years of that training payoff since 2014 when they were invaded the first time. And then secondly, thanks to president Trump who began sending in the lethal aid in the first place after Obama through literally through blankets and MREs at the process. Yes. That said, they should have had a lot more than they had. The other thing we had the commander of NATO and general milley admit during these hearings is Ukrainians would have been in a far better place if they had stingers before the invasion before. Not a week after the invasion. Right. And a sticking point that I pressed them on also is why aren't we training them? Why aren't we training battalions, companies, platoons, still. So we did that great training in the last 8 years, but we cut it off as soon as the invasion started. Why aren't we training them in Poland and Romania? In safe places on NATO terrace. That's right. Well, we can deploy with ease. That's right. Bring them over there and keep the training. So the NATO commander said, well, we're not doing that congressman as a matter of policy. So I went to the Secretary of Defense and said, why aren't we doing it? He said, oh yeah, we are, but we can't get any confirmation

Rep. Michael Waltz on This Week's Blistering Hearing on Capitol Hill

"Right, let's cut to the chase earlier this week. Congressman waltz, there was a blessing. I mean, just an embarrassing, truly embarrassing, a hearing on Capitol Hill. We had Matt Gaetz on the show yesterday. Talk to us about the state of the military, the state of the budget. And how a former four star general who's now the Secretary of Defense, I can't imagine I can't remember if this has ever happened before in the history of the Congress. Questions, the patriotism of one of your colleagues in Congress during a testimony? It's shocking. That's what Lloyd Austin did to Matt. Yeah. No, absolutely. I was there. And it's amazing to see some of these appointees. Lose sight of the fact that they're not elected. The American people are our bosses. And they don't put their names on the ballot. We do. And in the House of Representatives, we do it every other year, because that's how the founding fathers intended. We're the people's house. And so that was completely out of line. And the thing that Matt was questioning is you're so focused and I'll tell you about my follow one question in a minute. You're so focused on this woke ism and diversity and equity training and all of that social engineering garbage that you missed the capabilities of the Afghan army as it collapsed. You missed the capability of the Ukrainians when you predicted that Kyiv would fall in 72 hours. For those who misspoke, you said 36 days. What Millie, the chairman of the joint chiefs, the most senior military officer in the world. Said to president Biden, is that Kyiv is going to fall in 36 hours. And there was no apologies. There's no mayor culpa. He tried to actually argue that no, no, no, we got it right.

Who Is Rep. Michael Waltz, the First Green Beret in Congress?

"Things first, for those who aren't familiar with your story, still got a shock to me when I say this, the first green beret in Congress. How did that happen? Well, because they're different from seals. I didn't say that. Did I say that? Well, you know, there's no ego with Bragg. There's been 5 seals. I'm the first green beret. I just tell them it takes 5 of them to equal one of us. Nice. Talk to those millions of listeners across the country. Talk about your bona fides. What you did with the brotherhood talk a little bit about your military career. Well, I've served for 25 years. I'm actually still going in the National Guard as a colonel, but my career has been as a special operator served across Africa, multiple tours in Afghanistan. But importantly, a lot of folks don't realize both the seals and green berets have reserve units. So my day job, my civilian job was actually in The Pentagon under rumsfeld and Gates and then eventually in the Bush White House as a counter terrorism adviser to the vice president and so I had this fascinating Seb which you can appreciate having to be one of the only idiots in Washington that had to go actually do the strategy that I had written. Literally my first book warrior diplomat was there I was in The White House situation room, mister president. This is what we need to do to win the war on terror. Then I would get mobilized. There's a green beret and actually I have to go do it. Implement the thing that you recommend the amazing thing would be coming back from those tours going back into a coat and tie and into The White House and saying, hey boss, respectfully, The Pentagon's full of it. It's not going as well as you're being briefed. Here's what's going wrong and to try to get us in the direction of also built a company from scratch up to about 400 employees so I can read a balance sheet, unlike many of my colleagues on Capitol Hill, managing our federal budget. We created jobs from scratch, we did a lot of it in the national security space going after bad guy money all over the world for treasury and other threat finance, both for the commercial and private sector and walked away from that to run for Ron DeSantis's congressional seat when he ran for governor

Florida Rep. Michael Waltz Responds to the Past 5 Weeks of Geopolitics

"I considered him a patriot and a friend, congressman Mike waltz, Florida's 6th congressional district. Welcome in studio to one on one. There you go to be with you, sir. So much to discuss, you're now an established author will discuss that in a moment, but first we have to talk about geopolitics. We have to talk about what the man in The White House is doing. He said, I didn't say remove Putin, I didn't say to the 82nd airborne, you're gonna be in Ukraine. And I didn't say we should use chemical weapons against Putin. Well, we just showed the video. Give us your response to the last 5 weeks of geopolitics, please. Let me just talk to our commander in chief right there. And I struggle a little bit, sometimes with those words to come out of my mouth. But look, deterrence depends on two things. Credible military options, right? The Russians, the Chinese, the United States have to believe that the other side is capable of mutually assured destruction, but the key component there is the political will to use it. And when you have the commander in chief, the United States of America leader of the free world on the international stage, we've seen that in our history in a great way, Reagan tear down this wall and other great leaders in this country's history, but when you see on the international stage in a moment of crisis, the president flip flopping around, sending mixed signals, confusing our own troops. And importantly, I think handing Putin additional propaganda victories where he can go back to his people. I told you so. And actually using that to solidify his power

How Socialism Is Creeping Into Military Education With Robert Wilkie

"Lots of stuff to discuss. First things first, I need your response to the event I discussed in the monologue, a French professor Thomas piketty, who wrote the book time for socialism, okay? Is being invited to speak on our taxpayer dime at the Eisenhower school for national security and resource strategy at the national defense university where I served for 5 and a half years to do the following to discuss how a Western countries must stop their arrogance and must instead promote an emancipatory egalitarian global policy of democratic post colonial socialism. Now, I have no issues. If they want to do that in Harvard, if they want to do that in Yale, but this is the highest institution of JPM E military education in the Defense Department and it's paid for by you and me and all our listeners. And it's creeping into every level of military education. We already know what the chairman of the joint chiefs has said in testimony about courses at West Point and what he believes is happening to the military. We're not studying Patton or slim, great British marshal. We are studying this nonsense a socialist from a country that has produced one military disaster after another, the last battle they won was the battle of austerlitz in 1804.

"Welcome back to one on one with me Sebastian gorka and Jim Hansen. Let's talk about the state of the U.S. Military. You've served with Bragg. I spent 5 years as a DoD civilian still associated with a Q course of brag. Let's just remind the world who is the most senior military official in the most powerful nation in the world. Play cuts. First of all, on the issue of critical race theory, et cetera, I'll obviously have to get much smarter on whatever the theory is. But I do think it's important, actually, for those of us in uniform to be open minded and be widely read. And the United States military academy is a university, and it is important that we train and we understand and I want to understand white rage, and I'm white. And I want to understand it. Let's call him a fat moron, but we don't need to go quite there. But just that one sentence, this is Mark milley, the chairman of the joint chief the most senior military officer in America who actually said there, I don't know what critical race theory is, but it's important and I'm happy West Point teaches it. You know, if West Point was teaching it as kami propaganda, you need to understand. Good. Yeah. But he's too stupid to know that. And that's not how they're teaching it. No, they're teaching it as something that should be taken seriously because there is white supremacy and white privilege and all these other things that they now are agreeing in the military are reducing the ability of black and other troops of color, talk to them from achieving what they should. And that's garbage. There is no more meritocratic institution in our country. By definition always has been. And the idea that somehow we need to ruin it like we're trying to run the rest of the country is the most dangerous thing I see going on from a national security

And I got serious number one. This is number one by Playboy magazine. They rated UW max city number one. I took a bunch of classes. I took Hebrew because I was thinking about joining the IDF. I took astronomy to stop that. Okay, so can you just explain that? Why are we going to join these red defense forces? Because of entebbe. Is the greatest commando raid? Are you circumcised? Yeah. And I mean how to speak the alphabet? I had a body in my unit in the British intelligence reserves, went to serve with the what do they call them multinational for MFR? The MFA in the Sinai. And he fell in love with Israeli. I wanted to. 8 32, you had to get circumcised. Ouch. Don't know, please don't go there. Okay, so Hebrew I'm taking tags I'm doing that. I'm thinking about all those things. But top party school in the country. I got 5 incompletes. That's impressive. My dad was not impressed. Who is the Vietnam vet and West Point grad? No way. Yeah, to two tours of Vietnam. So he got the envelope and he opens it up and he looks at it and looks at me and looks at it again and looks at me. Crumples it up, throws it in the fireplace and says, you need to find a place to live and a job because I'm not paying for school anymore. So you out. I kicked me out and said, you might want to consider joining the army because they can't fire your raising butt. So are you a good joke? That kicks you out and joined the army. That is a good story.

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.

"west point" Discussed on Women of the Military

"Balanced kind of reminds me being stuck the lieutenant of the first six weeks on active duty i went to an air force training and like we had to be serious. I mean it was much more laid back than west point but we had like class all day long and then on the weekends in evenings like it was not the same story. We're not the same professional people that we were during the day. And so it just reminds me of like memories like that. The people that you meet in the military become like your family and it's like they're your friends but it's it's different because you have to bond together because you're away from your family and your especially like holidays in all the different things and then i'm sure your guys is class because of you having to go through all the stuff that's been happening with the pandemic makes the bond even more special because you're going through such a different experience. I would only say that last year of created the dynamic that was really special because we weren't allowed to leave posts really at all last year for the majority of the past year. A lot of people weren't happy about it. But i would say the the amount of time we spent with one another and interacting with one another because there was no other choice. It really kind of made us more into a family. Unit created those unique experiences that we are we wouldn't have had otherwise just because it was really easy to get people to do things in a really large group wanna do things in company because we weren't leaving over the weekends with gesture. Small lecture befriends. You didn't have a chance to go out every night. So you were hanging around the company area talking or people that you may be interact with the much since beasts event on. So i'd say it was. It was really unique bonding experience for our loss for sure. I have loved this interview. Even more than i expected. And i thought would like it a lot but i want to end the interview by. I always my podcast interview asking for advice for young woman. And so i would love to hear what advice you give to young women who are considering joining the military or considering going to west point. Let's focus more on like west point because at your guys experienced besides planning early and that was the advice you gave in the application process. What other advice would you give. I'll give two things for advice number one at the end of the day all you have to do is be. You dome tried for somebody else's leadership style on you. Don't try to conform to a- vision that somebody has b. You whatever you that needs to take. I mean it sounds cliche. It sounds cheesy but people gravitate towards the people who are centered in who they are and who care for others and if the military's for you the net awesome and we want you here. We want you to come here. That's the mindset. We want just be you. Don't delay anybody else tell you. What a good leader is you can take advice in. You can look at people being. Why really liked that version. Leadership you don't have to fully adopt it you can be like came in and take these bits and pieces in warmness as part of who i and you get to own where you are and as long as that is authentic and centered around who you want to be. You will do very well here because people will see that you are genuine and the second part of that is just come here with the mindset that you want to serve others in you want to be in the military. Haven't understanding that. You are going to be a good follower and you're Good sermon leader. I was telling people that like the last time you get to a higher level leadership position like at the end of the day. Just focus on caring for other people. You just focus on that care. The rest will fall into place. That is all unity to be able to do is tear for others and not care will vote abate than a guide them to work hard to be competent to have good character but all comes down to that willingness to be a good servant leader. So those are the two biggest things that i can give to women Beyond degree you and care for other people to the best of your ability. I interviewed retired general And she was one of the first air force generals and she said the same thing like take care of people. So it's awesome that you already know that so young so that's really cool. My first thing would be don't allow the naysayers to dictate how much effort you're willing to put it. So i know. When i was a senior in high school i went to i went to just an informational meeting and i was speaking to an old grad and one of the things that he told me was. Hey you're not gonna be able to get all as like your great like nobody's going to be able to get a four zero. You're not gonna be able to do it so it's not gonna even try to focus on things and i'd say had i listened to him and not put in the effort to even attempt to achieve that. I don't think i would have. I definitely would not have been able to do as much as a done here. And i don't think i would have enjoyed west point near this much on. I'd say putting in the effort is part of what makes this place enjoyable because it's about challenging yourself so kind of all the naysayers. They're telling you may be don't wanna west winner. I had people tell me. Hey don't go to west point you know you're a woman you're a black female. It's maybe that's not the right place for you. Go somewhere else like homicide if it's for you. We want you here so sick with your guy. Entrust your instinctive. This is where you're supposed to be do whatever it takes to get here because once you get here people who will gather around you and support you and appreciate you entry onto your us and is the second thing is home. Come ready to work. It's it's gonna push you sometimes more than you are expecting than you think. You can know that. There're people there to lift you up but be ready to do ninety seven thousand nine hundred ninety nine percents work and get that extra push along. Thank you so much for taking time. Out of your busy schedules. I know that it is really busy with your course load and then your leadership responsibilities so i really appreciate you guys taking the time. I've loved hearing your answers and just being inspired for the next generation of military woman. I feel like it's coming full circle to get to talk to you and all the work that i've been doing for the podcast. Thank you so much..

"Wesley and the reason why it's the number one leadership institution in the world is because you are actively engaged in leadership positions throughout your entire four years here. Not only are you in a classroom learning about leadership. Not only are you talking about it. But you're actively practicing it and that goes during the academic year and during summer trainings. You really get the opportunity to figure out what you leadership style is and home one. That is authentic to you. Not a big emphasis is you. Don't have to be the loudest leader. You don't have to be a quieter but you have to be a leader. Who is truly you and people can read that from a mile away and if they see that authenticity they're gonna trust you to lead them in the right direction and i think those two lessons that really stood out to me as far as what. I wanna get out of this upcoming lawyer. I'm just hoping to have the opportunity to serve my classmates best possibly can. This is our last year and this is really are defining year to leave. Our legacy are marked out westley in. I'm hoping that hanan. I can lead our team in. Make sure that legacies positive have been something that helps. The work connects really transition from a tough year. Living in a cogan environment in understand really connect with what it means to be a servant leader in what it means to focus on the legacy of west wing and what we are expected to do as future officers. I like to say The idea that you always put others before you and your leadership position is the opportunity a tool to serve others and help others and has never your state so. I'm hoping we can live that this year. I would say that the basis. I've learned since coming to west wing. One is just how how powerful having good people and good friends and mentors and support systems around. You is the big thing. Here is cooperate to graduate. I think it goes so far beyond when that simple phrase can even explain we talked about. We talked about beasts. In how a big part of it is being a part of a team but even gets the academic year on the other summer trainings. Just the day to day. Things that happen in life was when is so tough as is just between school and being on a team or doing. Some sort of scored the academics. And it's just with all the things that go on in life the stage in our lives with grandparents dying and Whatever home situations having a really great support system here and really tying into your friends and your tourists and leaning on them when you need to is something that's so beneficial but a lot of times for for a lot of people that come here. I found it's really. We find it really tough to ask for help or to reach out when we need help because most of us are so used to being able to get it done being able to do it on our own. Because we've been so self sufficient so successful being self sufficient so coming here just learning how to ask for help and learning how to reach out and be honest when you're not sure you can do something or when you need a little extra cash to get something done i'd say is one of the big things i learned. The second is probably just said so many things that we do here are mental a mental tests. And whether it's physical or academic it's really about how you go into it. So one of my being sean. His year was survival. I came in. I was like oh i'm not a bad swimmer. You know. I was a lifeguard high school and i got survival swim and it was just totally totally different arena. And no matter how more. I thought i was. I was not was not anywhere near the high level. Swim passer like that. So recognizing that some of the shawna's that. I was facing living's struggling with not us. It was more about me being willing to push myself and push myself pass. Where i was comfortable is really what helped me it. Succeed to appoint. I was comfortable with in that class. And then one of the things that i hope plan this year. There's there's so many things that have already been learning this year from my summer leadership detail and then just working on. I'd say one of my biggest things is learning how to be a better leader and follower at the same time when talks a lot about leadership about what it means to be a good leader and being the leaders that other people deserve. But i'm big partners began realizes you have to be a good follower as well in order to be a good leader so hondas the i can. I'm perhaps oh so. One of my big things is making sure that our staff brigade staff can work and can coordinate one another in a way that is serving in meeting the intent that she has for the core for this year so eager to serve willing to lead everything that we do and that i'm having the people that are working for me do is supposed to supposed to organize under that idea and can help. The course that asks what we want for the year. I really liked that. Both of you talked about how west point has pushed you to have to reach out or to admit that. You're not good at everything. I think the lesson that you guys learn so young that i feel like i didn't learn for a long time and so it's really interesting to you. Guys talk about it because you hear so much younger than me. The importance of getting help in like how hard it is to reach out for help but how important it is to help yourself. Thrive in whatever situation and also being challenged with something that you aren't the best that thing that was like one of my like hardest lessons that i learned because in high school and college things were pretty easy and i was usually one of the best in it wasn't an you guys are learning at so young and it wasn't until like basic training and being a lieutenant that i started to learn those. You guys have already learned those lessons. So that's really interesting to hear about. And i think it's really cool to hear about women in leadership in west point n. I've done some research like some of the changes that have been happening with their be more women and more women leadership. So what is it like to kind of be not breaking glass ceiling but kind of expanding on the glass ceilings. That have already been broken. So what is it. Like to lead as a woman at west point ma'am last semester. I did a women's history project on degration into west point. And i had the opportunity to interview a lot of the first classes of women in the experience they went through. I cannot even imagine going through. Today i they. They went through so many things. They truly broke glass ceiling for us to be able to be here today and always on the phone with one of them. I was in the car with a bunch of guys from my company. And i just looked around that far and i told her over the phone. Thank you because of you get in a car full of men who respect me in appreciate in value. My leadership in are willing to follow me. They're my best friends and they have shown nothing but support me over the years in especially now. I'm relying on them for their support more than ever in. I think that's really kind of has come down to here is just building. Relationships and demonstrating night is so possible for men and women to work together in a military environment in. Go through hard things together in. You're always gonna have strengths and weaknesses..

"west point" Discussed on Women of the Military

"Really good information. I love how you guys both had such different perspectives and great tips to help people. So let's talk about going to your first summer of what do they call it. Basic basic training that basic training. And so what was that experience like. Did you feel prepared. Or what did you do to get prepared. So we affectionately call it these spirits and a wakeup call for a lot of people especially neither handler. Or i can promote Yes so it's not. I say this called ra reception day and you show up and it's Check people yelling at you. You're not allowed to talk without permission from someone you are walking with your hands cuts in this. Uh your corners. It's pretty significant emotional event because you realize you have entered into a zone where you're follower like you. You are part of the team and you're relying on the team. It's not about you anymore in so for me. I think the biggest thing about recognizing how to get through basic training is being a good teammate. We like to be in a good battle buddy in everything. You do a basic trainees geared towards the team environment. How are you being a good follower and for a lot of people they realize. Will you do personally on something. It matters how well the squad does so you might have set up your helmet correctly. But if your roommate's helmet is set up correctly you're still both gonna face a punishment you did not me. And that's building good habits or school year and for the military in general about what does it mean to be a servant leader and really focus on taking care of other people and it'll be demanding to you'll do workouts every morning you'll learn what it is to do a rock march but luckily again you're doing all that as a teams. You're only a stronger weakest link so my another be recommendation for me would be going in shape. You're going to be expected to perform and a lot of the first judgements that people make about. You will be based on how you do physically important to be in shape to be able to run to be able to do pushups all although scene. Search really set you up for success in the environment but hannah has a bit of a difference. I know so for me going into the first year. It wasn't quite as emotional for me. Only because i went to ask so part of the summer leaders experience processes the day you get their debut a they rehearsal day and so you go in. And i of got to experience our day and i wasn't expecting it. And so the night off the western. They're yelling at us. They're pushing us along. We had to report the aetna red sash. Do all the things that you do on day and so for me. That's when my grit checking initially so. When i got to the actual day i felt a little bit more prepared a little bit more calm because i knew what to expect going into these holland was absolutely a going and physically fit is so important by the same with potentially more important. Is your attitude about everything. So i i'd say for meanwhile carried Finding the little positives in everything you do during the day. Because nothing's going to be fun all the time but finding those little thinking can really helps so for me. It was okay. It sucks that we have to be up here at five thirty in the morning. Doing pizza. And i don't love working out here it in the world so knowing that i got to see a really beautiful sunrise every morning with something that kind of pushed me at least i can be grateful for this thing today inside say attitude and being willing to be a part of that team. Icons heads just goes goes the distance. I like that you talked about how the summer program actually prepared you. Because it wasn't something you expected to be prepared for. So i think that's really good that you got to like experience that made you better prepared for when you went to boot camp and you both talked about how important teamwork is and i think any basic training that you go to teamwork is a huge part of it and so that i think that's really key and i love your perspective of looking for the small things to get you through because i remember i was just trying to get through each day of training and was like oh i serve i. I learned. I got to see the sunrise because you do have to get up early. That's a good way to change your perspective. So i love that. You guys are seniors at west point right now on us. We're both in leadership roles. What have you learned about yourself in the three years that you've been there and what do you hope to learn over this next year. Is you take on leadership roles. Ma'am i think one of the biggest things that west point does really well is teach you how to handle failure and how to fail forward as really good book. That i've read affectionately calls at west point does a really good job when you weaknesses in making you work at them and you really get comfortable with being uncomfortable. You're not going to be great at everything that was asked you to do but west requires you to put in the effort in attitudes. Be able to overcome those challenges. And i think for me. We year boxing class. For example i release away and adverse out. I'll get extremely upset. Why am i not good at this like do i do. I belong here. Is this for me. And then i really thought about and the conversations meant worse. I realize that. I'm not gonna be good at everything right away but could work at it and i could get better at it into now that attitude and mindset every time i face something that's challenging. I just keep that in the back of my head that you're not perfect at everything. You're gonna make mistakes of all. That matters is how you respond to those mistakes because we are human in can't predict everything that's going to happen to us especially in a leadership role. You're gonna face unexpected challenges that require you to critically. Think about them and understand that at the end of the day. Everything's gonna work out the way it should so long as you remain focused and are willing to work hard at it. I would say another thing that was really taught me is just how to be a part of a team and work with other people. The unique.

Www dot sabio dot l. a. to learn more analysts get started with this week's interview. Welcome to the show ladies until excited to heavy here than humam though. Let's start with. Why did you guys decide to apply to attend west point for me. Ma'am was related to my family history. My grandmother grew up in postwar to germany and she lived a very impoverished lifestyle and she always told me that whenever the american army came through their village everybody would always celebrate because they've found food chocolate blankets. And i knew that was mission stuff that i want to be apart of so when i went on a world war two her year at high school and i got seen normandy ambassador stone bellawood in a concentration camp. My own is. I knew that i can limit like in any other way but to join the army in west point seemed like the best opportunity to be able to do that. Vermeer man it was religious about seeing a different side of life and kind of embracing these new challenges and experiences. I i grew up in detroit so for me. The military wasn't really a big. It's not very big into trey and there aren't very many people who joined our talk about it. So when i learned about was played it was really just as like exciting adventure. That would push me a challenge. That i hadn't been before i'm sure that happened You or push challenge. They're both smiling and nodding. So i think i think that's for sure let's talk a little bit about what the application process was like. And if there were any challenges or tips that you have people who are considering applying to west point. Yes ma'am so the number one step that i would recommend everyone take is find out who their feel forced representatives. Every state in every district in each day has a representative. Who is there to help walking through the process and give you advice on it. Mine was mr bob. Grigson is a class of nineteen sixty four from west point and just phenomenal mentor in. He really helped me through the process. Making sure i was unscheduled. Giving me advice on interviews and what to talk about these phenomenal leader. And i was extremely lucky. I am grateful to this day. Still meet up with him. Talk to him about west point in what i go through here and i am extremely grateful to him for all his help. As far as what the process looks like a lot of it just starts with getting experience early on in high school with leadership position sports focusing on getting good grades. Those are all things that point looks at. They expect you to be well rounded. So you don't have to be her face but you should be able to do a little bit of everything in do it very well. There will be a portal that opens up on the west website. Your junior year high school that allows you to apply to the summer leader experience in the summer. Which is an opportunity breed. Come out to west wing per week in personal experience on what. It's like to be engaged with current cadets. The current connector the leaders for that opportunity. So it's a it's a good chance for you to learn what it means to be a cadet and then you'll have a physical application where you'll respond to essays about yourself turning your transcript. But the unique thing about applying to that there's a rational nomination process where you were district. Representatives were your state senator or even the vice president you apply to the office received a nomination to attend service academy or west point the naval academy the air force academy if you have any interest in any of those. He applied their servicemember in each district. Has its own way of doing it. But usually there's an interview where they will ask you questions about leadership why you wanna go to the academy. That is a pretty significant bed search for a lot of people in engaging such high level leadership and understand what it means to portray yourself with confidence in an interview like that. I'd say for a piece of the application process that six out the most is just the need to kind of get things done early to for me. I i also into the summer leaders experience. So it's on parameter after your junior year of high school. And what a lot of people don't realize that actually gets your application rolling higher to the former obligation coming out so while you're at the summer years experience you'll do an interview with your connect qadri towards the end of the week and that review is actually entity that supplements what you'd have to do with your field force representative and so from the time. That us donna. And you've gone through that program. It starts to application but it also was a chance to look at you prior to the beginning of your formal application to cadet and for me. That was really great experience. And then also just making sure that you're ahead of things so it will give out letters of encouragement and letters of assurance the letter of assurance is essentially snaring. Hey we really like you. You're a great candidate. As long as you get your physical pasta and your medically qualified and you get your congressional nomination. You're in and for me. That was a really big. He's been courage met. But you have to realize that the rule those out there isn't a hard stop deadline. And then they start passing out acceptances. It's on a rolling basis so getting information in early ending senior leaders really beneficial especially when it comes the medical side so for me. I had scoliosis. I have schools. So i gots rebuffed by the metal portion a couple of times so making sure that you're getting in early enough to get through those whenever the extra buildup sars for me. It was getting extra x. Rays done interesting. You have time to work through all of that before applications. Yeah i think you guys are covering like how important it is to start early and to stay on top of it. And i think maybe when you think about college application like oh i just sent my application in. That's it but for west point. That's that's that's just the beginning. Yeah i think that's.

But when you say secretary of state when you watch the decisions that are going to be made and being made, and you know what's going to be made because they played all their cards and look at the great job that Mike Pompeo did because he's tough. And he's smart number one of his class at West Point and a great student of the Harvard Law School. He was He did a great job, as secretary said, but he was tough and he knew what was happening with this, and he knew what was happening with China and Russia, and we would talk. Often. We had it all planned out, and then they decided to move the military out. And let's not follow the plan. It's like the only thing is, it's like the water wall. Nobody could handle it Worse were the greatest. We had the greatest protection that we've ever had on our southern border, and now we have the worst. And it was the worst nightmare to watch it that looks good by comparison to what's happening in Afghanistan. Okay? Something shocking happened. The Associated Press and our friend that right school, Brian Pointed it out. Biden has been saying all along that he was pinned into withdrawing from Afghanistan based on Trump's agreement with the Taliban. And he said more than that. Or we had to pour in, you know an enormous number of military resources. But stunningly, the AP points out how untrue

"After the armed services were integrated. It is still a fact of life in the U. S. Military that African Americans are more likely to be disciplined and less likely to be promoted than whites.

Large segments of the rank and file believe the system is stacked against them. The military has made attempts to deal with inequality before But this time it's happening under the eye of Lloyd Austin, this country's first African American secretary of defense of former soldier who experience discrimination firsthand.

"Is it not amazing? That there wasn't a single press event at the White House today, when we have 10,000 or so American citizens in Afghanistan. Because they don't know what to say. They don't know what to say. They hope it'll pass. They're counting on the Pretoria Guard Media. So Joe Biden goes to one of his favorite. Democrats. George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America.

Even given the fact that you are a pedestrian like me, even given the fact that you are purely a civilian like me. Would it occur to you to pull out most of the military before you have taken out most of your civilians, Mr Producer? Do you have to go to West Point to figure that out? You have to go to the Naval Academy and all the you need. I mean, do you really need To be experienced in military tactics and so forth to know. That you've got to get the citizens out before you start pulling out the military.

"Seventeen seventy seven general washington directed putnam to focus on building river. Obstructions along the hudson river. Although putnam spent part of the winter back home in connecticut. He did focus what he could with his army on building. The new hudson river defenses. The biggest obstacle for putnam. Was that just like the soldiers at valley forge. His men were starving and did not have sufficient clothing blankets and other supplies to work outdoors over the winter. Others however thought that putnam himself was simply not up to the job. New york governor. George clinton wrote to general gates that same month to say that while putnam was certainly brave soldier. He just wasn't up to the task of building river defenses. Remember that back in october. Seventeen seventy seven british general. Sir henry clinton had launched a raid from new york city capturing forts montgomery and clinton on the hudson river putnam had been in charge of the area including those forts at the time in november congress demanded an inquiry into the defense of those forts and wyatt had failed so badly. Washington put off the matter that winter as he was struggling with the difficulties at valley forge and dealing with the conway cabal that threaten his command. The army after about five months though in march seventeen seventy eight washington was able to turn his attention to putnam and begin the congressionally mandated inquiry. He relieved putnam of his command. While the inquiry against him proceeded washington's letter to putnam is almost apologetic. Saying that whether the charges are well. He'll grounded that they must be indulged. It seemed that new yorkers were refusing any support for the project as long as putnam remained in command so to resolve this washington. Put new york. General alexander mcdougall in command of the region. The court of inquiry would eventually absolve putting of any failures of command. It found that the loss of the fort's was the result of a lack of manpower. Mostly because almost all available soldiers had been sent to support general gates's army at saratoga. At the time of clinton's attack despite the acquittal putnam did not regain his commanded new york instead washington requested. That putnam go back to his home. State of connecticut to recruit more soldiers for the coming campaign before putnam left command. He had identified several occasions along the hudson river to build defences his successor. General mcdougal took up right. Where putnam left off. The americans looked at the four identified locations along the river where they should build obstructions and established offenses. This of course was not the first attempt to establish and build defenses as early as seventeen seventy five patriots planned for ways to prevent the british fleet from making. Its way up river to the hudson valley from new york city. That was why places like forts. Montgomery clinton and constitution existed along the river in the first place. Patriots had even constructed a chain across the river at fort montgomery and seventeen seventy six in order to block ships. That chain proved to be a disaster when they first deployed the six hundred yard chain across the river. It just broke from the strain of the river current after a repair and a second deployment. It broke again so they up for the winter figuring the ice would do a better job of preventing any boats from sailing up the river..

And are they getting the education they deserve, you know, uh, at home learning, and, uh, in the drop off we've seen we've had guests out of talked about the gaps growing for kids, you know, trying to learn to read and write and And everyone's you know, doing his best They can. But there's there's You know, there's problems that exist with trying to learn from home. And now this West Point story sort of brings up another issue, which I hadn't talked about yet before. But just the whole idea of The ability for kids to cheat while doing the work from home. Why are they even doing their own work? And this West Point story sort of. Crystallizes that they are not sure if this is exactly right. But I believe I read that 70 students work accused and 50 admitted to it. It was some sort of calculus test where kids had the same error on the same question. They all made the same mistake. Yeah, And I was thinking back to my own high school days and remember anything like that ever happened in college, But I remember e remember. In high school, there was a teacher who gave the Same test in the morning that they gave in the afternoon. And kids would try and remember questions that were on on the morning, you know, test and share them all for the kids with the canoe test have But I don't think it was a massive scandal. But I remember a couple kids getting caught in flunking the class. But this jumped out as a major headline and a major scandal was just curious about your thoughts on the West Point situation, just the whole the at home schooling and the concerns with trying to Educate your kids from home? Well, the whole thing with West Point. What's so shocking is that they have such a strict honor code there. I don't have the exact Burbage. But there is a code of ethics that they maintain their that their sworn to and you can't break this code of honor. And, you know, you know the word you will not lie or cheat or steal. I think that's what it is. And you won't tolerate anybody who does. And they're very I mean, they're very, very strict on that. Obviously, West Point you know is the pinnacle really of our military and So it's so important there, so it's just so shocking that 70 of them or involved in this, you know, Candace far as kids work, you know the schooling at home. I don't have kids at home. But I have so many nieces and nephews who have their kids at home, and they're just struggling to get through this pandemic by doing that. Have actually heard, some educators say and question whether or not this let this last year and maybe this year is well this this part of this year. Just call it a wash, You know, like, don't give grades out. Don't just don't count this year because of all the issues If you could just hold your child, you know, holding pattern for this year until things can get to back to in class learning. That's the best we can hope for. Because no progress can be made in so many people's view of working from home for the kids. They just they're just no progress is going to be made no learning Yeah. When it comes to the West point, I guess I guess I'm really glad there are places that take a code of honor. Very seriously. Yes, We definitely need more honorable people in this in this world than less. So I guess. From that perspective, I'm glad to see that that exists and that People will be held accountable. I guess in this case, probably it was a teacher computer who caught on that the cheating was going on there. We've been may be nice to see if students had heard about it and turned in other students because of the honor code or whatnot. But But that's interesting that that there is when it comes to the education at home. I try to think about like, you know, what year would be okay to, you know, Have your kid have a coded learned from home year? And I don't know. I don't know what time it is stuff. You know, if you're you could say all fifth grade. Well, fifth grade. You're learning things that just so important to You know to the next thing you learn. You know what I've one child left in school in their senior in college on it seems like a terrible year to be home. I mean, they're missing out on their ability to Talk to counselors about, you know, Finding finding a job about you know, graduating about the junior class is trying to, you know, needs to figure out what classes they need to graduate on time and toe. Get the right major and minor that they're trying to get to and it Other places are pretty much shut down. There's there's not like going on there and it Ziff ical. I don't know, you know. Unless you just have everyone have a do over and everyone goes to school in extra year, which is not going to do. They're gonna know somebody. They're gonna move everybody along, right? It's just a xylophone Scary. A lot of makeup work, I think and also, you know, don't forget. There are a lot of kids who you know either learn differently, or maybe have some sort of learning challenge. Okay, Those Children in these circumstances are really suffering mightily, and so are their parents trying to make sure that their kids Are keeping up the way they should be. There's kids who really get a lot of help while they're in the classroom, and rightfully so they should get it. Um, So what are they doing in the middle of all this? This has been a very e mean Put aside the students who, you know, learn well and do well and are going to be great when there's a lot of kids who just don't fall into that category, and they're really, really going to suffer during this. And technology is new for a lot of them. And for their parents for their countries for technology is hard for all of us, You know, I mean, you come home and you can say did you do your homework, You know, But if they say no. Can you help me with this? And you're like I told think I can I, You know, um and you know, then there's issues of People who don't even have access to computers, laptops,.

"After saying his goodbyes to Washington's aides. He retired to the upstairs bedroom to see how bad the news was. It was devastating not only had John Andrei been arrested on one of the very last legs of his journey to New York but the secret documents had been discovered. Those papers were on route to Washington once Washington received them him. Arnold's treason would be revealed. Arnold told Peggy what had happened. She crumbled into his arms weeping but she was crying not so much for her husband has for her beloved monarchy as for Arnold. He had to accept up several things in very short order. If he was to escape with his life I there would be no surrender at West Point. He would never verbier the hero of Britain who ended the American Revolutionary War second he needed to escape immediately if he wanted to avoid the gallows which would require piggies help and equally tragically for the greedy man there would be no twenty thousand pound. Reward Arnold Begged Peggy to act as if all was well until general Washington came to Robinson House with the news of Arnold's betrayal when that happened she should delay Washington as much as possible by fainting total shock and horror at her husband's behavior. Peggy agreed agreed without a moment to spare arnold leaped onto his horse in spurred at into a gallop ignoring his pain legs. He wrote down to his personal dock where he threw himself onto his private barge in ordered his boatmen to paddle South Arnold told them to row until they reached the H. M. S. vulture into display a flag of truce when they approached it is cover story was that he had an emergency message for Beverley Robinson to be delivered under a white flag the men road like never before making making a valiant effort to get Arnold to the vulture in time to deliver the message by now back at West Point Washington Shirley early new of arnold treachery would soon be pursued when presumes the irony wasn't lost on Arnold if he just counseled Andre to stay a couple of days rather than leaving from Manhattan on foot could have been rowing together on their way due to the vulture. Andre would still be a free man the invasion would still be on and Benedict Arnold would be about to get his blood money but that wasn't the case after what seemed like forever. Benedict Arnold's barge pulled up alongside ride the HMS Vulture after boarding he demanded that Robinson pull up the anchor and immediately sale for New York City as they sailed towards Manhattan Arnold had time to ponder the consequences of his failure. His handler was under arrest and likely to be executed. His family was in mortal. Danger is only hope remaining alive himself was because the British she had already accepted his defection. It was a matter of strict British policy never to turn over a deserter to his former army the deck of the HMS Filter Benedict Arnold began to formulate a public relations strategy. If he couldn't save his plan or his riches at least perhaps he could save his family and his reputation he could tell the world that he wasn't a simple turn coat that he had only wanted to end the war he wrote a letter to George Washington insisting that Peggy was innocent cintas any wrongdoing and should be conducted safely back to her family and Philadelphia. This was perhaps the only selfless act of Arnold's owns life after absolving peggy to Washington. He feared that he would never see her or their seven month old son Edward again they would grow up in the house. Peggy's father who hated Benedict Arnold at least they would be alive and safe as Arnold wrote those words Peggy was covering his escape with a prize winning fit of apparent psychosis at one point according to valiant ambition. She pretended to hallucinate that there was a hot iron on our head and only George Washington could remove it when Washington tried to do you just that she accused him of being an impostor bent on murdering Edward although it's impossible to know if peggy actually was hallucinating. It's most likely she was an exceptional actress doing just what she promised her husband distracting the general for as long as possible after the vulture arrived in New York City Benedict received an officer's commission in the British Army though the plan to turn turnover west point was ultimately unsuccessful. General Henry Clinton was convinced enough of Arnold's efforts to reward him with six thousand British pounds but he wouldn't be retiring rich as he had planned Clinton Expected Arnold a fight with all his might for the British army and truly earn his officer's commission meanwhile John Andrei spent the following weeks in prison and become a celebrity his own guards found him charming and his valet became so attached to him that he wept upon learning that Andrei would soon be hanged on October second seventeen eighty eighty Andrei was executed. He faced his death bravely. According to observers five days later on October seventh seventeen nineteen eighty benedict arnold published an open letter in the British loyalist paper the Royal Gazette titled Letter to the inhabitants of America the attempts to recast his treason as a patriotic selfless act on old wrote in part I affect no disguise and therefore frankly declare that I had determined to retain my arms and command for an opportunity to surrender them to Great Britain. I I was only solicitous to accomplish in event of decisive importance an to prevent as much as possible in the execution of it the fusion Uson of blood in December seventeen eighty benedict arnold led an invading force of sixteen hundred men into Virginia. His men not only killed and captured his former comrades. They made a point of destroying grain mills in supply houses leaving the local people to starve just a few months after formally changing sides arnold was reunited with Peggy rather rather than live out her life in Philadelphia continuing to Feign Innocence Peggy insisted on joining her husband in New York City soon after she became. I'm pregnant with their second child. In seventeen eighty one after the British army surrendered in Yorktown Virginia Benedict Arnold was not captured or punished for his treason instead his family sailed to England to start a new life he returned to the occupation of his youth becoming once again a seafaring merchant between seventeen eighty one and seventeen ninety four the arnold's welcomed five more children for a total of seven two died in infancy leaving the couple with four sons and one daughter eventually the Arnold's move to Canada. They are the aging Benedict Arnold focused on trading with the West indies. His business thrived but his many war injuries were worsening as aged by his late fifties. He was in very poor health and receiving frequent visits from the family doctor in June of eighteen o one the a sixty year old took a turn for the worse entering a state of delirium from which he never returned on June fourteen eighteen o one he died at home had benedict arnold been more successful spy he might well have succeeded in ending the revolutionary war with a victory for Britain. Feigning incompetence was his primary means of sabotaging west point in a fitting twist of fate eat. It was his actual incompetence that ruined his plans though he didn't manage to collect his twenty thousand pounds nor and the war Benedict Arnold's fate was better than he deserved. He died at an advanced age in his own bed surrounded by his family. Meanwhile meanwhile loyal Americans were killed by the thousands defending their fledgling country his treason and the obvious injustice of his safe escape made Arnold one of the most hated men in America even now more than two hundred years later. His name remains a synonym for trader today. Benedict Arnold Treasonous legacy is perhaps best summed up in the words of Benjamin Franklin who wrote Judas sold only one man but benedict arnold so three million..

"Young man at West Point that you still are still influencing you today? It's interesting. I joke with people that I still fault my underwear and keep them in my drawer. And of course, that gets a laugh, but it's also true. But most importantly, I I learned number of things I work at every day. And I do it people say it's tremendous discipline. I'd say it's a habit. It's a good habit. I got bad habits. But I get some good ones. And so there are things about what you expect about yourself. How you? Expect yourself to to stand. How you expect yourself to interact with people how you stay physically active because in a leadership role in the military. That's extraordinarily important. So there were things that they they do through forced behavior that become things that part of your character for the rest of your life. You say forced behavior. What does what does that look like that's funny? It's up, you know, they say that you convince somebody to do something. And then they do it. I think it's the opposite. I think you force somebody to do something. And then you convince them that it's what they want to do. And so when you get to West Point, the first thing, they do is cut your hair off take your clothes away make you wear. Uniforms. Give you a rank in name you start as a new cadet than your head. You have to interact with upperclassmen officers certain way, you have to walk a certain way when you're in the mess hall is a plea. You have to sit at attention. So they put you through a number of things that seem. Foreign in many cases, they seem silly. But over time you find yourself believing that you stand a certain way and act a certain way. So make sure I'm getting this writer, you said you force somebody to do something in. Then you convinced them that it's something that they should want to do is that correct? That I think that's absolutely true. It's called soldier as Asian in the army. You're really changing how they think about things to have it. Okay. Okay. So now, you spit your time at West Point.

Great leader, I think those who served with you and under you would say that what what at that experience with that TAC officer teach you that you carry it with you going forward because you must have seen a bunch of raw undisciplined people as you are moving up the chain of command who you saw. Y-, you know, talent and promise. Yeah. Exactly. I remember at the beginning of my West Point career. I got in trouble with this Colonel gave me a hard time for not having collar. Stay in my shirt, which kept your. Collar down, and he acquainted it to not bringing amunition to the battle. And I remember thinking at the time. It was just a plea by said that stupidest thing I ever heard I still was pretty stupid. This guy came in. I trust you kept that thought to tackle you. This guy came in, and he just exist it he understood what was important leadership trusting people building their confidence. And so later in my career, what I found is if you are genuine, and you are real in your view to be competent when you extend confidence down to somebody who's young when you show them trust. Even if they they're going to have some challenges they're gonna screw some stuff up when you throw that it has an amazingly powerful effect. He did that to me and it just for the rest of my career. That's one of those lessons. I never forgot. And so you try to do it with young people particularly made them whether going to really took time, maybe just screwed up. I just two years up. And yet he said does matter it's past let's move forward. Yeah. I think most people who are successful in life can. To that figure in their life often. It's a teacher who who who pick them up and gave them a sense of possibility really important. So you you enter the service at the end of the Vietnam war. I wanted to ask you about. I think about it often. You know, I go to these go to sporting events, and at every sporting event now of veteran is introduced an invariably people stand and cheer. But I remember the seventies. And how and how hard it was for Vietnam veterans coming home because the war was so reviled..
