The Boyz discuss: (1) what it is to be “happy” and the Gunner gives his recipe for happiness; and (2) being inducted into the Royal Order of the Shellback… kissing the Royal Baby, meeting Aphrodite and finally kissing Neptune’s feet while crossing the equator on a U.S. Navy warship.
The boys discuss how junior Marines Transition from Active Duty (not well) and Kate Germano’s positions on standards for female Marines and the Marine Corps moving to the “OCS Model” of greater gender integration in Recruit Training for female recruits.
The Boys discuss:
1. The Fallout from the Jeff Sessions revelation that he met with the Russian Ambassador twice last year… is it legit concern or is it political nonsense.
2. The Dance of Death and Casualty Notification… a serious discussion about death, watching it happen and how crushing it is.
The boys discuss how people on both sides of a debate believe in extremes, the need for civil discourse and listening in our partisan culture and the fact that perception is NOT reality.
Mac also shared LIVE audio from the landing on Iwo Jima. Absolutely riveting audio of Marines going ashore on D-Day, February 19, 1945 on the black coral sand of Iwo Jima. MUST LISTEN.
