Jerry Durrant, Col USMC (ret) joined us to talk about his time as a LCpl in Vietnam in 1970 as well as his thoughts on Iraq today.

He is currently part of a private company that does military education for the Iraqi military.  He has interesting things to say about where Iraq is and what is next for the war-torn nation.

He raises concerns about Sunni’s being eliminated from the Iraqi military, the upcoming Kurdish referendum and genuine surprise at the visit Muqtada al Sadr made to Saudi Arabia recently.

Durrant is a great representative of the Marine Corps and a thoughtful guest.
