Who Invented the High Five?
"The origin of the high five is kind of disputed slash not really exactly known a forerunner to the high five was the low five part of black american culture since at least the nineteen twenties. But when did it turn up. High and spread further afoot. Was it from the women's volleyball circuit in the nineteen sixties american. Gi's in tokyo during world. War two apparently magic johnson even once implied that he invented it while it michigan state's which blows my mind because my dad was in the same dorm building as magic johnson. Who like was my dad present for the invention of the high five. Probably not. But i suppose i should ask him just in case. Even if magic johnson himself didn't create it he was most likely there when it first started taking off of the top contenders for its origin. They all take place in the late. Nineteen seventies in the world of sports. One story goes that it was created by wiley brown and derek smith from the university of louisville cardinals during the nineteen. Seventy eight seventy nine basketball season. Since their team was nicknamed the doctors of dunk. Doing the standard low five didn't make sense. Their team was all about that vertical movement so they started slapping their hands together when held high above their heads. Brown and smith who passed away in nineteen ninety-six. Get a big chunk of the credit for creating the high five in the press and one reason is because so much footage of the cardinals. High fiving tests highlight reels. A level of evidence not shared by many of the other origin stories but another origin story. A lot of people are familiar with. Is that lamont. Fleets a basketball player from murray state. University also playing around nineteen seventy nine. The story goes that lamont's dead lamont's leads senior had served in the first battalion. Fifth infantry in the vietnam war the infantry was nicknamed the five and after the war when lamont junior was just a little kid. The guys would often stop by his house to visit with his dad. They'd created their own greeting a arm. Straight up with five fingers spread as they said five
Judy Batalion on her new book The Light of Days
"Judy battalion is a writer comedian. And the granddaughter of holocaust survivors her new book and soon to be screenplay is called the light of days. It's about women resistance.

They craved drink and they crave the light of day. The stories of the women.

When she was researching the world war two heroine and martyr khanna sanish buried deep in the stacks of the british library. She found an unusual book. It's an old book. It's you know in this blue fabric cover with gold lettering and the yellowing deck alleges a i opened the book and it is about two hundred pages of tiny script in yiddish. What even more unusual is i happen to speak yiddish. So i start flipping through this book. Looking for hana sanish. But she's only in the last ten pages and in front of her. There are one hundred eight hundred ninety pages of other women stories with pictures and snippets and bios of other female fighters and the chapter titles are like ammunition owed to weapons it. The fight in vilna and i should say the title of the book was flowing into ghettos women in the ghettos but this was a very different ghetto story than i had ever expected or anticipated

To seventy three goal of that right now. He tried to join the marines at fourteen. Fourteen years old credit eventually joined the army at seventeen off. The korean war went from private to master sergeant. All kinds of heroic actions suffered all kinds of wounds shot hit with frag white phosphorus burns and also bayoneted multiple times including one bayonet stabbed that broke off in his chest. He in the korean war served as a platoon leader even though he was just a young enlisted guy and eventually at the end of that podcast and at the end of that part of his life. Us pulled off the battlefield. One of the most decorated soldiers of the war sent on a morale at it was basically morale tour and i were flown back to the to the white house. President truman and then basically went to london and antwerp in brussels and the hague and all the other european allies that were fighting alongside america in the korean war along the way he met. Mrs eleanor roosevelt. She encouraged him to go to college. He kind of agreed of the quotes. He says in the book is he. He agreed because he was already master sergeant in the army and he said what am i going to do. Sit around the enlisted man's club telling stories about korea so he was sort of not not over it but he realized that he'd kinda done what he was going to do. So he ends up getting assigned as an rotc instructor at a high school in denver because he liked to ski goes to the third ranger class. That ever happened. He was in. He ends up getting married to his hometown. Sweetheart mary grace starts going to college or he then he gets out of the army then starts going to college at the university of pittsburgh while he's there he writes a book called conquest. No war nowhere. Which was his first book about the korean war which he later rewrote which we covered. What when it was rewritten was called the making of a soldier. That was podcast to seventy three for the most part worked at a steel mill at night while he was going to college and then eventually commissioned as an officer in the pennsylvania national guard. Shout out to the To two eight iron soldiers all right so so then he goes to the. He's back kind of in the army and he gets them warnings at the army's different now you know the war is over. The good people got out. We just left with people. That shouldn't even be in the army that got those kind of warnings but he stayed in. He loves being a soldier he wants to be.

Like the other students select. Who deserves this leadership trophy. Then he gets assigned as a ranger instructor and he starts. He starts in the mountain phase. And so today we're going to be reading so the first book that we covered we covered a little bit so he's written two books he's written. Three one was conquest to know where that one got rewritten. As the making of a soldier that was the bulk of what we read last time. This time we're gonna read from his second book primarily and it's just called soldier called soldier and lots of lessons learned but as i mentioned in the first podcast in two seventy three. There's some serious lessons learned about life and things get really crazy when he goes to vietnam as a battalion commander and we will get there all right so here we go go go to the book soldier written by anthony be herbert and he says this teaching young men the essentials of mountain climbing combat and survival was more of a learning experience for me than for them. I began discovering things about the resources in me as well as the way the army was moving. I was an

The inside story of the Iranian attack on Al Asad Airbase
"General Frank Mackenzie, commander of US forces in the Middle East, monitored the attack from his headquarters in Tampa, Florida. Walking into this small room off his main operation Center, where he could talk directly to the only two people above him in the chain of command. They bring in secretary defense and a little bit later they brought in the president to this conversation. We're listening to the reports of the missiles flying. You ever been on one like this? I've never been on one like this, where real missiles being fired at our forces and where I thought the risks were so high Iranian attack on al Assad was in retaliation for a stunning US operation. President Trump ordered six nights earlier, a drone strike, which killed Iran's most powerful general Qassim Suleimani. The blood of many Americans is on the hands of the same salamoni. He was this close to an indispensable man as you could find inside Iran, where he went violin. And death followed during the American occupation of Iraq. Sulamani had orchestrated attacks which killed more than 600. U. S troops and, according to Mackenzie, He was planning to do it again. We saw intelligence reports where the same cell Amani was moving various attacks, dreams forward against our forces in Iraq against our embassy and against other bases there. With the imminent perhaps an hour's, perhaps in days, probably not weeks. Until then, the USAID shied away from going after Sulamani for fear, killing such a high ranking government official. Would only provoke Mauritanian attacks. I never take killing anyone is a zone easy decision, but I think the risk of not acting in this case Outweigh the risks of acting So yes, I was good with the decision on January 3rd of last year on airport security camera recorded. Sulamani is arrival in Baghdad on a commercial flight from Damascus. Kensi was watching from a different angle. You have the drones overhead. Do you see him Healthy? Yes, yes. As soon Money's entourage pulled away from the plane. McKenzie gave the kill order to the commander controlling the drones. And then I said, Take your shot when you got it. Missile slammed into both vehicles simultaneously. There's no backslapping. There's no cheering because now I have to prepare to deal with the consequences. The action, General Mackenzie was sure Iran would retaliate, but he didn't know how and neither for awhile. Did the Iranians. I believe they went into a period of this organization because they had lost the officer. Who really spoke up and shaped everything up and told them what they were gonna do. So he's kind of ominous silence. It was a very ominous silence. And what was the first sign that Iran might really be thinking of her? Ballistic missile attack, they began to move their ballistic missiles. The attack was just hours away. When major Alan Johnson got the word. Iran's most powerful weapons were aiming for al Assad. My intelligence officer pulled me aside and Basically said, Sir, I've got some bad news for you. What's up? We have information that Iran is fueling 27 medium range ballistic missiles in their intention is the level this base And we may not survive. This was a completely different threat. Lieutenant Colonel Jim Garland commanded an army battalion at Al Asad. Sprawling air base about 120 miles west of Baghdad, where the U. S operated scores of helicopters, drones and other aircraft. Did the base have any defense against ballistic missiles now, sir? It was such a unprecedented threat. I don't think it was ever calculated. S o the capability to, uh, prevent a ballistic missile attack. It wasn't there. Did you have a plan for what to do? Way came up with the plan. The only real defense against ballistic missile attack is to get out of harm's way.

A junta shuts down a nations data networks
"On saturday. Myanmar's ministry of transport and communications directed that all mobile operators serving the country blocked the nation's data network voice and sms. services will remain available tech crunch reports. The general interdiction of data services follows earlier decisions by the country's new military government to block. I facebook and instagram and twitter. The ruling junta has sought to tamp down opportunities for mobilization of dissent and opposition since it took power in a coup last month the grey zone podcast yesterday featured an interview with g h q director jeremy fleming and general sir patrick sanders head of the. Uk's strategic command also responsible for military cyber operations in which they described britain cyber operations against isis british cyber forces disrupted the terrorist groups drone operations denied their operators mobile service and interfered with online propaganda. The campaign by britain's national cyber forces most active in two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen is sky. News says the. Uk's only publicly avowed offensive cyber operation to date the counter propaganda influence. Operation is in some ways the most interesting intrusive of the efforts fleming is quoted as saying we prevented their propaganda both through physical actions on the battlefield but also remotely getting to their servers getting to the places. They stored their material and quote the intrusion into isis networks extended to locking isis members. Out of accounts deleting or altering the group's information and taking down online posts and videos general sanders said quote. We wanted to ensure that when they tried to coordinate attacks on our forces their devices didn't work that they couldn't trust the orders that were coming to them their seniors and quote. He added that. Deception and misdirection were important ways of degrading isis combat power tactically british cyber operators said to have been working closely with allies including the us were able to block isis commanders orders from reaching subordinates. And we're also able to misdirect isis forces on the ground. In some cases sending their units into kill zones. It was general. Sanders explained a combined arms multi domain effort. The cyber operations didn't stand on their own. He said quote we wanted to deceive them and to misdirect them to make them less. Effective less cohesive and sap them morale. But you can't just do that in cyberspace. You have to coordinate and integrate that with activities that are going on on the ground whether it's from our own forces special forces and others and quote former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency. Chris crabs drew some press attention over the weekend with an interview. He gave the financial times the headline in the media outlet. Silicon is representative quote ex. Us cyber boss calls for military strikes on ransomware. Hackers it says which suggests a brace of thomas hawks prancing downtown to hit a gregor extortionists in their parents or maybe pre dawn vertical insertion of a ranger battalion to put paid to the ragnar locker gang in whatever tacky cybercafe. They're using but a close reading or actually a pretty casual reading of krebs remarks indicates that he's pretty much closer in his thinking to ghg cues fleming than he is to say. Curtis lemay or george patton. His point is that ransomware is sufficiently destructive and costly to make it worth governments wild to actively disrupt the gangs operations military cyber units like us cyber command. The uk's national cyber force have disruptive capabilities law enforcement organizations don't and it might be useful to think about how they might be used if at all there may be decisive legal objections to doing so on the other hand. There might be some legal models under which that kind of action might be legitimately organized. What if ransomware actors could be treated like pirates for example new post reports that kaspersky has discerned new activity by the crew using the silent fade. Malware silent fade is an online ad fraud operation that kaspersky has observed resurgent against victims in asia and europe. They'll be worth watching. The silent fade.

"Fire Department captain busted in an alleged scheme to steal Corona virus vaccine says we hear from Steve Rapoport Fire rescue captain Anthony Damiano surrendered to authorities in Polk County after they say he blackmailed a paramedic to steal Corona virus vaccines. Joshua Cologne was assigned to administer shots at a fire station on January 6th. Investigators say Damiano told Cologne he wanted doses of modernist vaccine to give to family members. Cologne told deputies he refused, and Damiano then threatened to tell people he was selling vaccines out. Out of work in arrest, affidavit says Cologne was scared because of dominoes rank in the agency, Cologne says later in the day, he let Tommy Jano swiped three doses from a refrigerator, then forged paperwork to cover up the theft. The plot came undone when a battalion chief noticed discrepancies in the paperwork, and the sheriff says Cologne confessed.

"Jack curtis here on dose of leadership. Welcome to the show my friend. Thank you very much for having me. It's pleasure this is going to be an interesting conversation. I mean it's obviously. I love having fellow prior military folks on here but now that i got a fellow gold winger on here so that's always fun but never had anybody that's been in command of a squadron on one of the things that i always regret. I gotta the ring court right at ten years. I got the airlines. But what are the an. I ten years reserves and the guard. But i always regretted not taking. I always want to know what it'd be like. Take command so this is going to be a fun conversation. I am interested from your aspect of it. I was joking when i got on the call with. You don't look old enough to take command. But i forget how my squadron commander was like in the late thirties. Fifty two now. And you're in your early forties right so you just don't look old enough to take command but i it's just me not dealing well with the age of getting older but but thanks for coming on the show man privilege beer. I've listened to your show for for a long time. Several years. And i gotta i gotta admit i'm pretty humbled to have looked at the lineup of people you've got on your show and the quality conversations you've had into now get to be a part of. Its thank you well new and i have a history to because i don't how many years ago wasn't you reached out to me. I mean in karachi. That's probably two thousand and fifteen. Or so i had just selected been selected for command was kinda starting to do a little bit of thinking about Some this bigger picture leadership stuff and i came across your podcast. And i said hey. I think i'd like to talk to this guy. And your gracious enough with your time and I remain grateful for that. Yeah and you reached out in an i. Don't remember what advice gave you. Hopefully it was. It was okay enough. Didn't get fired very go. And and then you reach that again graciously a blast from the past and you kinda update me where you're at and i appreciate you. I thought well this might be good to have you on the show because it gives an insight to leadership that i think a lot of people usually don't get the inside baseball on right and i'm curious to because it's something that i've never experienced. It's something that i always wish. I wonder how i would do. But you had a unique experience. Let just for the sake of our listeners. Your naval aviator right. You eventually started flu wing. How long have a perspective here. What year was that yes. We'll jump in the way back machine. A graduated from the university of florida in may of two thousand I immediately went up. To pensacola started flight. School you're familiar with this track You made my way through Through flight school and then ended up finishing in may of two thousand. Two's almost exactly two years of flight school which is relatively quick Yeah i had a lot of A lot of wait times like six Wait six months. then i'd start a phase. Wait six started phase so it took me a while. Yeah i was really grateful to be able to go through that quickly to i think And your instructor. If i recall correctly i mean one of the things. That's so important. When you're learning a new skill or a trade or a job or task is just repetition over and over and as you work towards those ten thousand hours right and You know being able to go through flight school. That quickly meant that. I was flying almost every day. I was in a simulator almost every day. Sometimes twice a day and You know being a middle of the bell curve kind of blue collar pilot. Like i'm in a career of repetition important so yeah long. Answer your question but i got winged in two thousand and two. Okay good yeah so that you're about eleven years ahead head me or eight years. I got winged and yeah ten years ahead of me winged in. I wanna keep doing this math. I'm like my head's about to explode anyway. I'm old you're not so that's the whole thing that it came up with so you get and you fly the ea six right. And so you're you're flying to that and eventually transition to the e. Eighteen growler super hornet and eventually took command right. And so. when did you so this is interesting. So when did is this your first command and when was this. When was your first command. Yeah so you know the navy. Does things a bit differently than Some of the other services particularly army and the marines where he will have a platoon commander for our company commander the navy Typically there are a few exceptions with some of the small ships but The navy typically reserves its first level of command at the level In the marine corps. In the army as lieutenant colonel battalion command in the navy at squadron command of a squadron commanded on the aircraft side or it could be on the ships a destroyer Nope yes this is. My perception commands I took command having been in the navy for. I think the eighteen year mark

True Christian Hospitality with Karen Ehman
"Me. I've always just a pastor's wife so you know you would think with the resume that hospitality should just come easy. And i had a mother who was amazing at hospitality even though she worked fulltime job My memories are so full of our house. You know not only having people over for dinner but literally. My parents opening their homes for people who needed a place to live for a while. We used to call it gustafsen home for wayward boys and girls. I love that and there was just this open armed like we knew if someone needed a place to say even today even though my parents are much older i know that if someone really needs somewhere to stay that my parents have an extra room and would be happy to have them and so that spin just a part of their life which i would just imagine. You should have become part of my dna. But it doesn't come as easy to think that this that hospitality in that open armed approach to life. Is that a a personality type or a spiritual gift or something that we all need to cultivate. Why definitely think certain personalities tend to have an easier. Go of it. I definitely think it is a spiritual gift however not off the hook if we don't have the personality or we don't have the spiritual gift of hospitality because you know in the bible. We are told to practice hospitality. And when you look into the greek rendering of the word it's written as a command. It's not a suggestion. It's not a a sentence that best translated now. If you decide to offer has to do it this way you know. We are all told the practice hospitality and so. I don't think that it's something that we're exempt from. However i think if we can learn to have the right perspective about it it can be something that all of us can do. Because what's happened. Joanna is that the world has tainted what we think of hospitality. We look at what. The world says entertaining. Is you know which is having people to impress them with your fancy stuff in your gourmet food big house and all of those things we see on. Hgtv and i'm not knocking hdtv right. I love watching it. I'll ride but we need to learn to use those decorating websites those fixer upper shows. And all that as a resource rather than try to mimic them the lifestyle. And think that if we don't have gourmet food and a lovely redecorated house than we can't practice hospitality entertaining. What the world entertaining puts the emphasis on you in impressing others. Hospitality puts the emphasis on your guests and seeks to refresh them. Not impress them when they are in your home. It's it's about them not about you. Say about your stuff about your your food about your home. It's about them and how they feel when when there with you and the person who i reached out to me with welcome with my pastor's wife and they lived in a very old church parsonage that hadn't been redecorated in years. She used to feed me. Warmed up creamed chipped beef over day old bread. That had been into toast because that's what her family was having their eating leftovers that night. But you know what it tasted like. A gourmet feast when i was with her. Because i really didn't care about the food. I really didn't care about the house. I cared about how i felt. And i wish i could quote properly who i. I heard say that you know people will never forget how you made them feel. And that's what has battalions. It's making them feel wanted and welcomed and really listening to them as they speak. It doesn't matter it doesn't it doesn't have anything to do with your home your
Oracle's Jason Witt on the Partnership Between Creative and Code
"Today I'm joined by another Jason Jason Wet I, who is the senior creative director for four x marketing and Ryder Oracle Jason was senior creative director epsilon. In, both rules, Jason leads teams, designers, and developers, writers, hats had strategists, all those people making him out to help clients, deliver more effective email campaigns to subscribers. So welcome to the PODCAST Jason. Thanks for having me excited about the conversation. Awesome. Yeah. So I always like to start things off by hearing about guests I. I guess your career in the marketing world and how you make your way to where you are right now. So can I tell me a little bit about how certain? Email? Marketing Archaic General. Bad I got to work all yet for sure. So it's kind of a long road but. I've been in marketing for almost twenty years now. So I. Started Out in traditional marketing doing you know not so much offline but mostly print direct mail I worked. I worked for an in house agency for quite a while over ten years and so it was interesting coming out of that in into more the agency world and when I started it up Salon I kind of walked into it into a position that would they scratch their head civil. Why do you want to come in and kind of get your hands in the work and it was because email really was a channel that I had it really dug into. I said to be you know really versed in anything I really wanted to get my hands in the work. So I spent about the first year. So really really fine tuning my skills around creatives and then also making those connections with the technology in the platforms that we use today order to send out email and over time I just developed a a larger team underneath me and it just kind of grew from there and and and had some really great successes were some awesome. had a chance to do everything from not only created strategy, but also developing design systems for our clients to use to create efficiencies within their their creative workflows, and so you know one of my I think one of the philosophies sort of carried me now into working at Oracle is that you know there's so many ways for our teams to help our clients. At. You know a large organization like Oracle in your sort of consulting role I think a lot of times and you're working with a client they might have like an. Agency of record or they'll have an internal creative team. And I think it's important for us to kind of walk in and really be able be able to be put our consultant on. Be. Able to just say, Hey, look, we're an extension of your team.

You know it's interesting at Oracle, because we have sort of this mixed, right we have to platform. So we've got responses and then have Alachua and eloquent tends to be more on that beat Abi side and You know it's a little bit more hands off of the L. A. Clients just because the fact that they're they typically, you know are smaller to mid sized companies. So they most likely won't engage in some of the more I would say costly services you know they're really kind of hitter budgets there can be to be, but we do have a fair amount of clients that we work with their You know to support to support their campaigns there, and then on the responses side where it's more beat see, we have everything from retail financial services, hospitality, which has been a tough year.

"Fuel your lifestyle in terms of all the nutrients that are in beef. It's nature's multivitamin terms of Great nutrients it. Hasn't it like from zinc iron protein? Your b-vitamins All of those things are really valuable in helping you. Fuel an active lifestyle so they incorporate that into it and they just they work really hard to show the appreciation and respect for our military service members Who Make sacrifices every day and their and their families as well so you know. I'm really proud to support that. I just think it's a great cause I appreciate you sharing that because I've been around the block a few times as a male spouse and I did not know about the American beef battalion until I was preparing for this conversation and then Google it and what you're sharing now so I appreciate that aspect because from my perspective. Beef is delicious. My favorite will yes absolutely is. Osama good that everybody it's delicious. I'm a little biased. But it is delicious may do it. I mean it's delicious but also I mean it's so nutritious like it really fills you up so I got your average like a a one serving of lean beef which is about the size of a deck of cards or unless you have like gigantic gorilla hands. It's like the size of the palm of your hand and it and some people have gigantic gorilla hands. I understand that but an in that through in that serving of beep deck of cards size I mean you get. I don't remember the exact numbers but you can get like a quarter of your days. Requirement protein of beef is a good or excellent source of ten vitamins and minerals are like vitamins and nutrients so I said zinc iron protein. I used to be able to name all ten but zinc iron protein B vitamins. I think Selenium Potassium like all these things that you need and you get them all in this smaller portion and then you finish it and you're like you're not hungry for more you know some. You're eating a bag of chips like you. You can go through a bag of chips and like thirty minutes and still feel hungry. Because they're not very filling but like beef is so nutrient wrench and so filling. You don't eat a ton of it. I mean I want you to but you don't have you don't have to get all these nutrients and it just. I used to run like used to run like you. Did you know I used to run half marathons and my body was like? I was literally crazy so I just have. You know I'd buy like a package of cars charcoal stakes little like four or five ounce steaks and grow them all on one day and then Mike for Lunch. I'd have a little charcoal stake in like fruit or something or cottage cheese and man. I was completely full even after running like four or five miles because like it's very filling and it just manages fuel your lifestyle and so good for you. There's a lot of studies that have shown that lane beef can actually help decrease the bad cholesterol in your diet so to me. It's Kinda like a no brainer like if you can eat something that's that delicious that fills you up and also helps you manage your heart. Health like why not absolutely. Maybe that explains why. My husband is such a healthy specimen. That's his words by but he I'm not going to tell him. Remind him that. The serving size of beef is three ounces. Cause the man will eat. I've seen to meet a pound easy at one setting and he will not share. I'm like hey can I'm a piece of that? He's like did you buy your own house like put a cut rebuy like rude. Whatever it's fine. He's red blooded barrel chested freedom fighter. It's cool. He can eat what he wants. He's probably I guarantee you. Barnes expending thousands of calories a day way more calories per day than I did when I was relieved by vile so go ahead barn have more than one one serving but oh yeah I mean. It's it's so nutritious and Oh and something I wanted to add about the beef battalion that I forgot is that they have served four Over four hundred thousand stakes in across the United States awesome. Yeah I mean like it's just a great cause and I'm really happy that does that and I meant to say that earlier and I forgot. Sorry yes okay. No worries glad. You threw that in there. 'cause that sounds still delicious and very Very empowering for people that enjoy a good steak especially after do an infantry stuff or whatever your mls might be brandy what do you want? People particularly us is military members to know about cattle ranchers and farmers I am we are just like you for. I mean for the most part like I might have kids and I have a kid in daycare and I struggle with remembering cookie day at daycare and I have to meal plan and I forget to buy birthday cards for my some of my best friends and I. We are just like everybody else. We just live in the country and have cows. You know. We're we're people to buy groceries. We shop at local businesses. I mean there's really not much difference between farmers and ranchers and non farmers and ranchers we. We live our lives and have struggles and challenges and triumphs just like everyone else. We just happened to have cows our backyard in the first segment of our show. You mentioned the importance of course of sustainability and AG production. Why should members of the military be concerned about these same topics since most of us in our current career aren't necessarily related directly to AG production? I mean I think we should all be concerned. I mean all citizens should be concerned about sustainability because we can all help make our planet better so whether that means walking instead of driving or riding your bike or taking public transport- or recycling things or using fewer single use plastics. I mean I think we should all be concerned about the sustainability of our food supply because a sustainable food supply is you know is safe and it's going to be around for a really long time and the more we can do as a society to help protect that you know the more well-off we're going to be so. I think everybody military members farmers ranchers bankers teachers so on nurses so on so forth should be concerned with us because we wanna make sure that we have a safe and secure food supply for the coming years. I mean I'm GONNA use like our current right now. We're recording this. When we're in the middle of the corona virus they shutdowns and things like that and Grocery stores while the shelves empty for like a day. You know on certain items like bread or hamburger eggs or something like that because we have a safe and secure and sustainable food supply. I can guarantee you more food is coming for that. Maybe isn't going to be there in an hour. You have to give you know. Truck drivers a day to get the food there but this country is not going to run out of food And that's because we have worked really hard to be sustainable and secure and you know the more efforts we put towards back the better off. We're going to be so that's a little plug for. Don't worry if there's no milk today there will be milk at the store tomorrow. The eggs and bread will be back on the shelves. You made us have the way today or two but there is more coming and that's because we have a sustainable insecure food supply in the United States preach it. That's right that well brainy our time together is almost done. Which is a bummer. 'cause you know. I would talk with you all day but I'm sure our listeners would be like yeah I gotta go to the store and get some bread milk and beef steak but before we wrap up..

"Cbs News came to the ranch in August but that was for unrelated issues. So I've really done the the media Gauntlet I guess. You might say in terms of channels and interviews and all things like that and I've been very fortunate for people to be supportive about it and I've appreciate it appreciate it all the attention and support and I hope that somehow it has helped someone feel more confident about food that they're eating the beef that were raising because that's my ultimate goal. I'm so glad I threw in that question because I feel like that's that's such a big part of your story and it's not you know. I want our listeners to understand the impact and the influence that you've had because you're passionate about a topic and you're professional about that topic and you WanNa share that and it's not just something like Hey I'm inviting my oldest friend on this podcast to fill a spot. It's like no I wanNA share your story because you're Sherry. Your your story is worth sharing. So I'm really glad that I pulled pulled rank which I have no real rank but pulled rank and through stress. Question there you're welcome but I think I think it's so cool. Just socor love watching. I love watching not the recognition necessarily because I mean the recognition scrape but I love what your platform and your passion is doing for an industry that you and I are both so passion about even though I'm not directly connected to it anymore. Living in the city in El Paso Texas. It's still something that is near and dear to my heart so I'm super glad that you're pursuing that in representing all of this small town Agriculture Kansas girls in that pursuit. Well I appreciate your your your all. We've always been very kind and I appreciate that. I'm just not regularly accepting compliments. I think you know that so I just say we'll say thank you and I'm doing the best I can and I will keep doing the best I can because I love this lifestyle and I love I want to be around for the next. You know seventy years. So that's why I do it awesome. Well obviously you're passionate about this but tell us what's your favorite thing about the farming ranching lifestyle Absolutely it is raising my raising our daughter in this lifestyle so as you know you grew up in a rural background out in the country like it's really hard to quantify that like she's learning and not the she's learning like responsibility and hard work and you learn those things in lots of other backgrounds as well. I understand that but she's learning like to have compassion for animals and she lert. She's learning science that she's out here looking for worms and she understands the difference. Between like a Heifer and the bowl like you know between what's a young female cow and what's a you know an adult an adult male bovine like she's learning meese things just because she's around them everyday dot because we're sitting down with flash cards and say those things but she just is in it every day with us and she learns science and Agriculture and she learns about food and we have a garden so she knows how to grow things and I mean it's just you know living in the country has so many educational opportunities just because you're living in. It's not a book notes on a book assignment and I just loved. She gets to be out here and do all these things with us and she gets to see our devotion to the land and our animals and then she also sees that you know your family and your your family comes first in your farm or ranch come second and everything else is below those things because those are the things that we have a priority on it for better or worse. I mean some people disagree with putting your family your farm and ranch so high up but for us. Taking care of our animals is really really important. So I'm just I just love. She's growing up with that. And it's really hard to articulate in an eloquent way but That's that's how we do it. Yeah I totally get it. I miss. That's one of my favorite things of getting to go home. I don't get to do it very often. But I love getting back with the cattle and the horses and the the wheat fields. And you know because I grew up with that and I have an inborn fondness for those associations which those of you who know that's from the fakery and I'm still huge nerd all these years later but I do have a fondness for the agricultural life and my kids aren't growing up in that but the cool part is they're growing up in a different experience that I didn't have the growing up as military children. And so it's ironic. There's a lot of similarities. Just maybe a little bit less working outside and a little bit less stake in our side of things and speaking of steak look at that segue speaking of steak. Where's your what's your favorite quick and easy beef meal? Well the easiest thing is to just put a steak on the grill easiest thing but if you don't have steak I really big fan of arrest of pot roast recipe that is used put a pot roast in And you do. A packet of dressing seasoning so like the dry season. A package of ranch dressing seasoning. These are all dry and then a packet of Brown gravy seasoning. You put that in with One Cup of water in there and cook it like I don't know four hours on high depending how much your pot roast how big your pot roses. And it is so flavorful. It's dried out. It's not like doesn't taste like it was steamed or anything like that like. It's got a lot of flavor from those three packets so that's the easiest thing to do that. I'm so happy that other than you know your your run-of-the-mill steak or Burger or something on the grill. So that's my my suggestion see. I'm GonNa totally do that roast recipe. 'cause A it's quick and easy and be like we love steak. We Love Burgers. But we don't have like a propane grill because my husband's all infantry cook over an open flame which is awesome but I am horrible cooking over an open flame. I think in thirty four years of my life I've managed to cook over an open flame guerrilla steak once without over cooking it so I'll take care of the roast and I'll leave him to the steak and the Burgers but my husband does all the grueling. Because I always overcook it and yeah we and I like I like charcoal. Like like barn does but it takes so long you got just takes longer. You got like thirty minutes. Preach charcoal to get ready. And I just don't have that much time because I generally don't decide what we're going to eat for supper until we want to eat so right. We seem practice hurry so I liked the charcoal and over an open fire but it takes too long so my husband doesn't even do the charcoal he uses like actual would like all firepit. Yeah he is hard core and I'm like it's either going to be completely wrong inside at Burton on the outside or it's GonNa take shoe so I'm GonNa let him do that and I can only. We only have steak and hamburgers when he's around in home in time to cook which doesn't happen very often so roasted is in our house. Gay for the red meat. It's good I'm excited to try that. I'm really hungry now. And it's not even lunchtime or yes so Anyways Bernie of sobek enjoying our conversation but we are going to take a quick break when we return was chat about the all American Beef Battalion.

"You're in then in just a bit. We'll hear from army wife network owner commander Sharia Knob lock as she chats with Brandy Buzzard Phobos about agricultural advocacy and the beef battalion before we hear from Brandy about all things agriculture sustainability and where our food comes from Ashley. Let's chat a little bit. What's new with you in Minnesota and in your meal spouse life. Well there's been a few new things going on My husband currently working remotely from home. I feel like that little character from wally that runs behind Wiley. And it's trying to clean up the messes behind him and my daughter. I find it Kinda funny. I told him that the other day. And he's like are you serious Mike. Yes which clever way to put it. Yeah like I wanNA find a mean for that because that'd be really but Now it's been nice. Having him home he does have to work on some things but for the most part he's getting to spend a lot more time with her daughter which is awesome. That's nice yeah and we are planning our garden that we had planned. I had already planned since we bought this house They have a garden this year. So we've been buying a few things to go into the garden. I did buy some rose bushes the other day that were on sale at all for five dollars zoo. Yeah just waiting for this weather to warm so we will see. How are things your way? We've been pretty good. Everything's been we've been home for the most part like a lot of people have been School has been canceled for the rest of the year. So everyone's been home now. I think for about two weeks straight husband has to do distance learning. He's in a school here at Fort Leavenworth so he does his distance learning for three days out of the week. So we're trying to keep the kids quiet. Then and incorporate my work time in sharing workspace is not so easy. But we're we're making do. It's it's it's been interesting. You know stuck inside alive. That's for sure we've been trying to take walks and stuff just like we walk down the middle of the road because nobody's driving anywhere really and so it gets the kids out to you because I have three. I have three little kids. So it's a lot to to try to balance their free time and being cooped up in learning time and especially when they're little because they have a lot of energy. I know my two year old. She's not able to go to her ballet gym classes anymore or little school that we went to once a week and you can really just tell. She misses it because she'll randomly burst into song or start. Doing one of the dances that she'd learned our weather has been really cold and rainy. So we haven't really been able to get outside right now but we're hoping the weather is going to warm up soon so we can actually go outside and run off some energy. That outside time is so important in especially now because with school ending. These are all military kids and now schools done for the year. So they're not going to get to see their friends really to say goodbye. Don't get to say goodbye to their teachers. And that's kind of. I don't think it's really hit my kids yet. But that's probably going to be a tough thing in trying to cheer them up. We've been trying to write letters and stuff to their friends that we like. I know where they live to help me get a little bit easier in. Keep that little bit of communication up for the kids. That's a really neat idea to have them do that. It's been really nice for those things and they get they other friends pictures and our neighborhood is doing this thing where they hang different themed things in windows or on their front doors. I've seen the last. Week was shamrocks in rainbows. This week is dinosaurs so we sat and drew dinosaurs with dry race markers on the front door and next week's flowers so we walk around the neighborhood and check out everybody else's drawings which is pretty cool. That is pretty cool. They've been doing something similar here where they're putting bears in the window. Okay Front Porches. Bear Scavenger Hunt and then yesterday local photographer found another photographer somewhere in the US. That was going around taking pictures of people on their porches. Are they distilling ones? I don't know if they're just silly. You're just random portrait's but she offered yesterday to do that here in our community as well and she's like if you want me to stop by pick a portrait of your family and I'll give you the pictures for free Oh that's nice and so it's pretty neat to see all the families because it's a it's a different time you know we're families are actually home with each other and not see that very often but I think those are neat little ideas for people who is also people doing the sidewalk thing we did. We didn't it but we experimented. We did the you know we ran through it. And it was hopping skipping and spinning. It was the kids thought it was. You know just a surprise on the walk pretty cool.

"The infant motion picture industry got involved to a certain extent as well radio. Hadn't quite come along yet. But suffice it to say to the extent that there was mass media. They got involved. It was a a nationwide subject, of course, of intense interest in his our guest Edward legal notes. It was far from unanimous that this country was going to be involved. There were a lot of German American immigrants who had recent memories of the fatherland, and we're not too happy about this. There was that to this day. I suppose that's one reason why there is a a certain isolationist streak in Iowa. Republicans for example, Ed. Many Americans were worried about whether German Americans even polish Americans and others from eastern and central Europe would be willing to fight for the United States. And in fact, right before the troops were sent overseas, and in nineteen eighteen thousands of soldiers of German ancestry, Austrian ancestry polish ancestry were kicked out of the army not because they've done anything wrong. But because there is this paranoia that they were not going to decide for the country. And ironically, what happened was that may be immigrants soldiers and sons of immigrant soldiers all the more determined when they got overseas to prove that they were Americans proved that they love their country, and they were willing to sacrifice for it. Now, this this particular battalion these six hundred soldiers soldiers, they were not known, of course, as the lost battalion initially. Really who were they? Whoa. Their division. The seventy seventh metropolitan division was made up of draftees largely taken from greater New York City. Many of these were guys from the Lower East Side of Manhattan from hell's kitchen and other neighborhoods like gas house, and from the Bronx and Brooklyn, and these these were Streep gangsters free cart vendors elevator operators in the Russ many of them were immigrants sense of immigrants. And so they were they were moved into division sent overseas. The three hundred Nathan regiments first and second battalions were commanded by Charles Whittlesey, George mcmurtry, and these guys were from the wealthy classes Whittlesey was in New York City lawyer mcmurtry was a millionaire stockbroker, and they were put in charge of commanding these soldiers from from the tough neighborhoods in Manhattan. And other parts of New York City. So they they ended up making up what was called the lost battalion. It was really an unlikely very diverse group of men, and it sounds like the makeup of the battalion leadership and and the enlisted ranks such a British unit of that era than than something today. When of course, you can have today. People of any number of social orders winding up going to officers training school, this sort of thing. And of course, your delay without a draft. Why people in the upper echelons of society, I say regrettably at don't do much serving at all. Yeah. The idea at the time was that America's best and brightest. Are most privileged are blue bloods. So to speak were the natural leaders today were the ones they had a civic, and they had a national duty to lead and to risk their lives in service of their country and men like Whittlesey and mcmurtry really took that to heart. These were men who didn't have to serve nobody forced them to certain mcmurtry was in his forties. He was already a veteran of the Spanish American war. And as I said a millionaire so nobody makes them go to the front, but they they feel that they must they they have a strong, powerful belief and duty to their country. One eight six six five O, JIMBO our number one eight six six five zero five four six two six briefly. I was there anything to indicate how outstanding they would be or were. They just another unit. Well, their first experiences at the front and remember this is an old drafty division. They moved to the front in August. And they're the first draft division to be put into combat and they fight very well. They're very aggressive. They're determined. The Germans put them in some bad situations. And they they fight to the finish. So they they had had some experience. There had been some indication that they were strong, but we're coming. There was some indication we're coming up on a break that doesn't move, and I would have picked up the threat of the.

Obviously, you know, operation healer heroes was born out of a veteran suicide, and the fact that we're able to help you guys and support you guys in your in your mission. One that I've actually taken advantage of myself, we think is just so important. So we really are appreciative of everything you're doing for the veteran community. Awesome. Thank you for saying that it's it's one of the things that are programs completely confidential. So I never have any idea who is in our program until somebody says that it's always sort of like I was love hearing it, and it's always means something when I go back to him like, hey, you'll never believe it like I met someday and near like, yeah, yeah, we, we know, because we're, we're creating. Going really great. Where where is that? What drives you to do all these things? Higher purpose, task and purpose? I had strong. I wanna like stay in never intended to be like a veteran guy, right? But you sort of, you know, talking to a friend of mine about this a couple of weeks ago, we had a bit of a convoluted story, one of a gold star mother, and our battalion we found out was homeless. And the battalion really rallied together in a friend of mine named Chad. He sort of put together everything to sort of take care of her and actually a. The sister. Of another marine who was killed named Michael hangs his sister Melissa, she volunteered to drive this mother to California's should be back with their family and the battalion. The entire battalion really rallied around this Goldstar mom and I was talking to to chat about it and it's sort of we sort of understood that even if this war ends tomorrow, even though they've been going on forever. But even if the warrants tomorrow we will be dealing with the effects of these wars for the rest of our lives, right? We'll be taking care of each other. We will be our kids will know each other. We will be taking care of the gold star families. They gold star families on it, so you're taking care of us more than we are taking care of them and and that that's just something that will be part of our lives for better for worse. You know, until until no longer on this planet. So. You know, as long as the need is there, you know, and it's it is a remarkable community, and I feel like to be be a part of it. Yeah. The community just rally around one another. I'm gonna throw Melissa in there for big dick energy to for doing that. So shout out to her schedule has huge. Entertain. Three so far.
