That the perpetrators are under so oftentimes. We see that they are very good friends with the person who is conducting the investigation and there's a conflict of interest there. How does that play out like. Do you have examples of how that goes south. I mean take take a look at vanessa. We begin with breaking news. And the vanessa gan case vanessa. Gin was a twenty year. Old army specialist stationed at fort hood in texas. Gin went michigan april and a fellow soldier who took his own life is believed to have killed her. She came forward to her family and said that she was being sexually harassed They believe potentially sexually assaulted. Were not sure that but she was afraid to go to her commanding officers because they were friends with her harasser and her harasser ended up murdering her murdering her dismembering her and discarding her and army see.

There is no justice in this system right now that is why pretty much any organization at works in sexual assault and sexual harassment advocacy is asking congress and asking secretary austin that the chain of command should be removed from the reporting the the investigation and the prosecutorial process of these cases. It needs to be handled by an independent body that is trained educated and has the resources to do this. Couldn't the secretary of defense change a lot of this himself correct. I mean because we've been waiting on congress to change it but it sounds like he could not quite wave a wand but pretty close pretty close. Yes when you ask him to please do that. What does he say. He's basically said Prior that he'll take under advisement. Thank you for your input. Doesn't that make you mad mad. No i wouldn't say mad. It can be frustrating but course just the fact that they're considering Listening to organizations like mine who are kind of in the trenches with active duty members is important for so many years.

They heard me and that the message was religion the rest of the marines that were in the building to and the major that was next door. That was like my office suite mate. He came out and when he would come out. The marines knew they were fucked when major almost said his name when he would come out and he would shut my door like if i was yelling at marine it was almost like the green light for me to go further and he knew it and i knew it and so when that door got shut like the look of fear and other marines faces was just it was just so perfect. But i think that there is. If you look back at my career there certainly would be things. That would be hazing. That i still think have a big place in a branch like the marine corps. It might not translate to the air force. It really might not. It might not translate to the coast guard. But there's elements about the marine corps. The army to and i think the army the reason why the army doesn't have any is because you guys did it right and having empowerment for the nco's were the nco's have the ability straight from the jump to tell somebody to drop and give me push ups if you do that. The marine corps is considered hazing. Like you can't do it anymore. Yeah that's a little silly to me. Because i grew up physical correction like that alternately. You're helping them. Because you're doing physical activity that is going to make them stronger and it's not meant to be malicious. It's not meant to torture or to to hurt them in any way. So in the military there is some value to corporate shaming to really is. Yeah yeah no. I agree i agree. And by the sheer definition of the word. Like we said you guys as me on this show on this very show you guys hayes me so it's just part of it. I don't know. Kyle shuts the door and let's go go off on. The data provides could be a troubling snapshot taken. Shortly after the marines face national scrutiny over hazing episodes at parris island other marines who trained recruits were found to have inflicted chemical burns requiring skin grafts. The result of forced physical training on a bleach covered floor and other naked trainings to run back and forth and then jam together against the walls of a shower. The problem with our we used to have to do shit like that. Yeah pretty not fun. I all eight journal. Structure is faced. Especially when you all have enormous bushes by month. Two and a half. You're going to be talking about dick's something we all got our razors taken away mmediately. First week in all eight drill instructors faced some level of punishment over the silent hazing scandal because of national attention and investigations resulted in a slew of recommendations for change that same year. Crackdown on hazing. Within first marine division california resulted in at least eighteen marines getting kicked out of the core thirty spending time in the brig and i remember from my time out there things at escalate to where somebody gets promoted and okay they put the new rank on and we all walk up and we shove before they put the backers on you shove. The pins of the new rank into their skin into their collar bones. Like we haven't done to us and we all did that to everybody else but then some other people would take it to the next level. Well now everybody gets to kick in and now everybody gets to do this. And we had marines rains. Like i heard stories like it did permanent damage and actually ruined people's like like the got out of control the hazing that would result from that out of control like fucked up people's careers kind of thing and that's the reason why you can't allow some of that stuff and it's bullshit because if you if you appreciate the traditions and values and having that i mean when i got promoted anytime i got promoted after the rank of corporal and people would do that and they would shove into your collarbone or whatever it never bothered me because it was nobody ever did it like maliciously like were there intentionally. I usually just go up and you just give it little thought. And they're like congratulations. You give them a little thought but you would have those fucking idiots who are like trying to dram it down into it because those are the people that ruin it forever. Yes the biggest piece of shit to like the on site with. Yeah yeah stuff like that that would just totally escalate this. I also have say. I feel like i got almost as bad if not worse. Hazing rugby team back in the day. We had to do pretty awful shit so one point. That's kind of stuck out to me. Here where i was just talking about force physical training force physical training. I'm okay with that force. Physical training on a bleach covered floor. That doesn't add anything and that's just harmful so that's stoop. That's stupid right. That's just mean for the sake of being mean so don't things like that but that was common like breast like scotch breslin bowl and then you just do it over and over again. And then one of the that i was really good friends with. He probably never saw sergeant major because of some incidents like this he was at. Oc s in through Laundry detergent and one of the candidates faces and it gave them like a burning in his eye and he got in trouble for that like got an average fitness report and so he was never ever gonna get promoted from things like that. But i think that there is a big difference like when the article goes on and says that the marine corps sixty percent of hastened hazing incidents where physical and thirty two were verbal like to me the verbal hazing is probably where i draw like a big distinction to like. You can have things that you say to somebody that the normal public would be considered mean where. I don't think it's hazing. I think it's appropriate and that you are direct and straightforward but there is a point where like you have as a leader. Your mission is not to tear somebody down. Your mission is to build them up and make them better marine soldiers. Or whatever like that's your job if the verbal correction that you're giving gets in the way of their troop development that's when it becomes a problem and the way that you approach the individual marine or whoever and your care and how you train that individual person differs from person to person if you have to rely on hazing and like psychological stuff to control your marines you suck leadership you just shitty leader and you don't know how to lead you just suck it's just have. Ptsd you need to go to therapy.

"I try not to be surprised by things that happen. Because at the end of the day the military is sort of a cross section of society itself but the Marines especially because it's so disproportionately male AOL disproportionately young compared to the other branches now and then you have a higher concentration of people who are at the time in their lives. Were you know bad. Decisions are pretty common. You know this comes not long after a seal team was recalled from Iraq because of <hes> some inappropriate behavior. Do you think there's something larger going on here. I don't know if there's really any connection culturally there between the the two types of units but we've even at war for almost twenty years continuously and now this is speculation on my part but it takes a toll on your on your military the the deployments and everything now the the people arrested at Pendleton Ten thirty two to enforce these are very young Marines <hes>. It's unlikely they've had much deployment history but I don't think I'm going out on a limb to seeing that we're seeing some of the strains of perpetual warfare that has entered dyer who covers the military military for the San Diego Union Tribune Andrew. Thank you thank you Greta Thumb book off. Sweden is only sixteen and is already one of the most vocal climate change activists in the world a year ago. She helped bring more attention to the school strikes. Thanks for the climate movement that since taken off in many other countries she's also become no for her address to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Poland last year. Many people say that Sweden is just a small country and it does matter what we do but I've learned that you're never too small to make a difference and if a few children can get headlines all over the world just by not going to school then imagine what we could do together if we really wanted to.

"And I was lucky enough to become a board member. So really for me my personal experience. The morale, you know, I wanted to know what it was about because I've been involved smother organizations and some of them are incredible. And some of them are more involved in just kinda getting the boys together kind of drink beer, you know, hanging out. And and for me, my aspiration was always, hey, you know, our younger teammates. That are serving today because I'm retired. What can we do to help them? What can do to help their families, you know, marines, or you know, we have traumatically injured we have marines with your PTSD. We add marines have not mercy financial needs. You know? Of course, like every other community. We have debts. You know, if you parachute deaths in the last few years as an example, you know, those families, although there's a support structure within the department of fence, and within the Marine Corps, you know, those their needs or not always dressed or sometimes it's a recent separated veteran that no longer has those support elements 'cause he's no longer attached to the the Greek, you know, and and as transitioning from military coup civilian, so when I started to understand what the foundation has done. You know, I was like, wow, I wanna be a part of that. Now, I'll be honest with you, this just peps opinion again going back to the tenant of Saudi professional. I felt like wait. Why don't I know about all this great stuff that the are doing? I should know it misses by community. I should know. That you know, Breen that was, you know, killed a parachute accident we help family by doing this. You know, traumatically what it really helped him with ex marines house got flooded on his severely damaged you worked with organizations to get people out. There is gut the house. Why did I know about? So for me, one of the tenets that I put forth the board was saying we need to tell the store because young recon marines need to know that there is an organization like the marine reconnaissance foundation. That's there to support them their families. So you know, that's kind of a nutshell what you're going to does. It's all volunteers. It's a it's a few active duty marines. It's mostly retired senior enlisted. Although we do have a few commission officers some of them that are still do. Eighty against silent professionals. You know, this is this is uncompensated job. I will tell you for me personally. I mean, I'm I'm at work twelve hours a day, I'm suppose seven days a week depends on what's going on in the world for my civilian job. So being on the board is really a second job. I mean, I could easily say any day I put in between two and five hours, you know, work in sport foundation. But, you know, the key point here's all of us volunteers, all of us is board members believe in the mission, we believe in in the reconnaissance community, and I'll tell you I get to interact some of the young Rekondo's today, and they're awesome. You know, they are I'm really impressive. What our marines and special fish recons corner during the day. And so that reenergize me like ain't that I need to stay in the fight..

"Do you share with the public which parts or just for you guys, which is understandable? But at the same time, I really believe that some of these stories need to be shared, and we do need to pass them these things on. I'm working here. Another book that just landed in our office a life of blood and danger by Daniel hill. And this guy had way back. It looks like in the fifties and sixties he had quite a career. And this book is like probably five hundred pages. So I do thank you for coming on here and educating us a little bit. And I guess that would be my next question. Then is could you tell us a little bit about what our recon marine does and getting also to the differences between recon enforce recon. Because I think some of our listeners will be really interested in that. Okay. Well, I if I could go back to the the on the radio station. So I wanna be clear, you know, the purpose today for for been coming on. And guy is really in the end of this is to talk about the brain reconnaissance foundation, and what we're doing for our community. Whether it's traumatically injured, whether it is gold star families or whether it's the active duty riccar breed or Sark special tips causes Cormon and their family today. So, you know, we have to make a decision of foundation that if if we're going to garner any support we have to tell some the story we have it. Right. There's there's no way without exposure. Are we going to be able to do things, and I know gets us a little later. But as example, you know, I think as are aware that were we are flying six gold star families out to Hawaii for an all expense p trip in you know, in less than a month. I mean, you know to make that all inclusive all expense paid, you know, on a thirty million dollar state with their own private chef and own private helicopters. And all the great things you wanna do that does not have unless we're talking about it. Right. And we're we're seeking support. So I'll stop there. I know I gotta get so back to your question about reconnaissance marine. So so I it's important understand that core. The United States Marine corps is the Marinko and the marine air ground task force that built or rammed, you know, that detain landing team and on up is really support, you know, whether we're talking about f three five fifth generation aircraft. Whether we're talking about attack, Cobra attack helicopters conscience. You know, we at the fundamental core of our doctrine the marina on task support. So that's that's an important note. So reconnaissance marines in the what was formed for to his division recon their role largely with the key support, the marine division against bring division infantry and their former individuals and their job with basic conduct ground finish reconnaissance in support that marine division. You know, isn't a landing is in an air assault is around clearing, etc. Back in the older days. The force reconnaissance company were kind of be mea the the more senior, folks. I mean back in the nineties if you were recon battalion marine and you wanted to go to say first force recon company, yaldo, your basically train riccar Spreen, you could be jumping dive ranger sear this the other. You would still have to take the the force reconnaissance in dock. So you'd take another selection move up to force your congress. The the great shaping at that time was more senior. So you would look at the vision recon, and Lance corporal, corporal sergeant and maybe a platoon sergeant staff sergeant April commander, probably as the first ten where force recon company, you know, took the more mature, experienced brains who had the excellent baseline, by the way. I gotta add that that came from recon battalion or some of the best, you know, special operators that have gone to national mission force at on all over the place. But in the ricotta me, that's kind of the way things or you know, you'd in'dock you've got company and at at in my time platoons were pre senior. When we were in Iraq. We add platoons that had, you know, a senior cabinet or junior major as a platoon commander..

"I Magnin bardy. We're talking this hour with miles Lagos -i, he's cinematographer director and producer of the new documentary combat obscure, he's a former Lance corporal in the Marine Corps. He spent eight months in Afghanistan's Helmand province as a Marine Corps combat photographer. He was assigned to the first battalion six marines that was in two thousand eleven and the footage that he brought back from Afghanistan is what makes up this new documentary, combat obscure miles. I wanna play another seen here from the movie. This one is just so revealing about the the truth and honesty that some of the marines look upon themselves, and you know, and their callings in the in the unit that you were filming. So in the scene, it's after dark and several marines are holed up in their blast shelter. And they're smoking local haschisch, which I imagine they could get in trouble for if found out, but one of the marine says, luckily, Afghanistan is a hash farm, and then looking pretty relaxed. He tells your fellow cameramen just in Loya what he's learned about the marines. Once he became one. You know? Inquiry ring was like which perfect people. Will do anything bad don't hers squirt away killers and recourse or the individual them ever met? Just me. A scene from combat obscure miles ki help us understand why this particular marine was was saying what he said. Well, I mean, I think. A lot of Americans have this perception of the military's like these these kids that just wanna go serve their country, and you know, fight for freedom and all that. But a lot of a lot of the time. It's kids we're looking to to kind of find themselves into they're looking for something that they haven't been able to find say like going to college or getting a job. And you know, there's a lot of kind of crazy kids in the Marine Corps. There's a lot of really rough guys that you know, some of them have criminal record. When we when we enlisted in two thousand eight most of the guys that are in the film that was Obama's troop surge. So they were they were pretty much taking anyone who is willing to go because they needed. They just needed bodies in Afghanistan. So you were getting a lot of a lot of wild guys that. You know, maybe wouldn't have found something else in another direction of life. But, but yeah, I think that that moment kind of pretty accurately sums up how a lot of actual marines feel about you know, the Marine Corps. There's quite a few scenes in the movie where they're they're smoking. That local has Sheesh. I mean, do you do you did you worry about when putting that out all out there that you know, people might be pretty critical of that? I mean, I kind of I think it's okay to be to be critical of it. I think surprisingly. You know, people put put war, and like the experience of war on Japan, a soul that you kind of get away with anything because you can say, well, they're they're in war and wars hell, and it makes you do crazy things. But you know, we want to kind of challenge that in show. You know, these these kids made the choice to enlist I made the choice to enlist, and it's okay to be critical of of some of the things that we were doing out there. But I think being honest is is the most important aspect. Now. This next question might sound like such a question from a civilian. But when I saw this I thought I I mean getting high in a in a war zone. We're clearly there so much danger. And you're in the right in the middle of it just didn't seem like very suspect. Ovais wise thing to do. But but I understand that at least one of your fellow marines said that that they decided to get high on purpose. There was actually an advantage to being somewhat paranoid after smoking..

"We were not an aggressive generation a fact which may explain my failure to understand some presentday attitudes in the armed services particularly in the royal marines and the parachute regiment possibly a degree of personal aggression is appropriate in troops are who are committed to battle for comparatively short periods like the marines and the paris when the success of an operation depends on oltra rapid action however in my experience troops lose personal aggression after about two months in doubt after three months they acquire a mature compassion which in no way detracts from their offensive capability they simply know a lot more about war i would suggest that personal aggression should not be confused with ofensive spirit based on professional competence and experience interesting take that aggression that you can maintain if you it's not going to last forever and and then you're going to have to fall back on duty and in that mature compassion which isn't taken away from their offensive capability interesting.
