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.
MAJGEN PAUL KENNEDY, Commanding General of Marine Corps Recruiting Command joined us to discuss his career, changes in how the Marine Corps recruits women, gender and recruit training as well has online behavior.
A great, candid interview where the terms “leadership” and “discipline” surface in every aspect of the interview.
Brigadier General Dave Furness, USMC, joined ALL MARINE RADIO for a blunt one-hour and forty-five minute interview. Here’s what was covered:
(1) Online behavior for Marines, the UCMJ and 1st and 4th Amendment rights
(2) The marines united investigation
(3) Can the Marine Corps monitor the internet for such behavior or is it an “unreasonable search”?
(4) Recruit Training: where is the Marine Corps relative to gender integration at MCRD?
(5) Recruiting females “more suited” for the Marine Corps and “poolee standards” for females
(6) Can the “OCS” model (female platoons in male companies) work for all recruits at Parris Island?
(7) DISCIPLINE. Privacy in the BEQ is an issue the Marine Corps struggles with; does living like civilians in a dormitory contribute to the feeling that Marines are still mostly civilians and therefore civilian behavioral standards apply?
A candid interview with the second Marine General Officer to speak at length on the issue.
