Rats in the Twentynine Palms Commissary, “Phase 4” of Recruit Training goes holistic and a Post-Colonoscopy live interview: Mike, Mac & Montana Man
A ton of news going on today, we’ll focus rats forcing the Commissary at MCB Twentynine Palms to shut down, the changes to “Phase 4” of USMC Recruit Training where Drill Instructors where do more talking to recruits and shed the “knife edge” aura of the previous 11 weeks.
Montana Man joins us to update us on the colonoscopy that he completed this morning — another case of a “post-colonoscopy” euphoric high!
The Boys (Mac & Montana Man) talk about the effect of good leadership on ALL LEADERS in a unit.
Jack is one of the developers of the the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program and has extensive experience in the area of ethical law enforcement training. His book “The Ethical Warrior” is widely used by law enforcement agencies around the world.
Listen as we discuss why leaders shrink at the point of conflict… the role of discipline in leadership… and how the Marine Corps Marital Arts Program is SUPPOSED to contribute to ethical leadership in the Marine Corps.
LtCol Austine Brown Rawllins, USMCR joins the program to discuss her involvement in a private Facebook Group called “Actionable Change” — formed in the wake of the “marines united” online behavior issue that has gained the nation’s attention — and what that group and a related group which is open for all to join (Actionable Change Allies) wants.
Like many, LtCol Rawllins was surprised to learn that the Marine Corps, prior to recently, had never targeted and recruited women. She discusses the need for change in recruiting and modifications to recruit training. Her strongest comments during the two part interview are reserved for leaders who fail to lead at the “point of confrontation” and for advocates who are “protecting women” from the disabling rigors of the combat arms MOS’s.
A GREAT interview!
