The Boys discuss how much Gunner HATED recruiting duty in Sacramento, CA (Mac’s hometown) and that all other virtues pale in significance to discipline for a Marine.
Daryl Hill, former Major USMC, joins us to talk about his career as an infantry including his tour with 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment — serving in the “March Up” — and the business of mentoring.
Daryl’s mentoring focuses on HOW TO FACE YOUR FEARS AND BREAK THROUGH YOUR BULLSHIT. Listen to his story and how he achieve results.
He helped me.
The Boys talk about reigning in the killing instincts of Marines in combat and how discipline defines success in units that deploy for war.
DON’T MISS THIS!!!!!!!!!!
MajGen Paul Kennedy joins the program to talk combat leadership. MajGen Kennedy was the 1st Marine Division Plans Officer for “The March Up,” commanded 2d Battalion, 4th Marines in Ramadi in 2004 and the 2d Marine Regiment in Helmand Province in 2010-2011. In 2013 he was assigned as Commanding General, 3d Marine Expeditionary Brigade, where he led the initial response to Operation DAMAYAN (Philippine typhoon, 2013) and Operation SAHAYOGI HAAT (Nepal earthquake, 2015).
He is currently the Commanding General of the Marine Corps Recruiting Command..
SECDEF James N. Mattis and the Commanding General of CENTCOM, General Joseph Votel, briefed reporters today on details of the Syrian airstrike, more refined bomb damage assessments, the intelligence that led to the airstrike and the message that was intended.
THE BEST OF ALL MARINE RADIO: Tony Zinni spends almost two hours discussing leadership and world events with Mike McNamara.
The interview covers General Zinni’s career and lessons learned from Vietnam, Somalia, Desert Storm, Iraq and his experiences at CENTCOM. Of particular interest are his thoughts on the moral obligations of leaders, he reflects on the moral dilemmas of Secretary of State Colin Powell and JCS-J3 LtGen Greg Newbold — incredible candid stuff.
One of the greatest Marines of our generation, this interview puts his great gifts on display.
CROSSROADS WITH NED SEATH & BEN BUSH… two combat vets, a microphone and some war stories.
Our two Marine combat veterans sit down and discuss Ned’s career which began when he enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1962 and culminated in his time as a machine gunner in Vietnam in 1965 and 1966. Ned was awarded the Bronze Star with “V” device and the Navy Cross in 2011 for his actions against the North Vietnamese Army as a member of K/3/4 in 1966.
Ned left the Marine Corps in 1982 and retired after a career with the railroad. GREAT STUFF!!!!!!
Produced by @Matt Morgan, LtCol USMC (ret) who’ll join us before and after the segment.
Tom Draude, BGen USMC (ret), joined ALL MARINE RADIO to talk:
(1) The Pentagon’s policy of not discussing troop movements
(2) Why are we in Syria? To remove Assad? To defeat ISIS? Are we certain?
Tom also discuss “close combat” in Vietnam and recounts an battle during which he gave the command to “fix bayonets.”
The Boys discuss two stories they had seen separately but were written by the same author: Adam Makos.
Devotion tells the story of Naval Aviators Tom Hubner & Jesse Brown. Hubner crash lands his Corsair in the vicinity of the Chosin Reservoir to save Brown who was shot down and trapped inside his aircraft. Hubner was awarded the Medal of Honor and recently had a U.S. Navy destroyer named in his honor.
Gunner, upon hearing that, recounts another story (also written about by Makos) about a German M-109 that safely escorted a badly damaged U.S. B-17 bomber to the English Channel and safety instead of destroying it and the crew. The book is entitled A Higher Call. The pilots meet here in the United States in the 1980’s — incredible.
The Boys discuss the crazy crazy weather they’ve seen around the world… from the Northern Pacific to Iraq and Afghanistan… they’ve seen some crazy stuff.
Recent reports of heavy civilian casualties in Mosul, Iraq spawned a discussion about and who they believe is responsible for these casualties. Listen to an interesting discussion about how ISIS uses civilians as combat and public relations pawns in combat. AN EYE OPENING DISCUSSION.
