We’ll hear the Commandant of the Marine Corps message on the 242nd Birthday of the Marine Corps and then we’ll talk to Bob Nilsson, Curt Knowles, Rob Schwarz and Joey Porrazzo — all former Marines about how they’ll spend they Birthday and what they think about today.
Bob Nilsson is a Vietnam veteran. He joined us to give us his thoughts on the ten-part documentary “The Vietnam War” by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick.
Bob “Boomer” Milstead, LtGen USMC (ret) joins us to discuss helo dunker training, who needs it, how often should it happen and the incredible life saving power of HEED oxygen bottles.
Boomer also discusses with us the importance of Safety Stand-Downs and how safety is a function of doing things right and how leadership makes it all work.
An awesome interview with an interesting and accomplished Marine General Officer.
Bob Nilsson has career opportunities for veterans. He’s looking for 40-50 leaders, hopefully with combat theater experience, who are looking for careers in the field of construction management or management.
Bob has bee working with transitioning veterans since his days on active duty as a Captain during the Vietnam War.
LtGen Bob “Boomer” Milstead, USMC (ret) joined us to discuss his forty-year career as a leader of Marines which began as a Cobra pilot and culminated as the Deputy Commandant for Manpower and Reserve Affairs.
Boomer discusses leadership, leaders who left a deep impression on him as a leader, his deployments to Somalia, the “March Up,” back to Iraq in 2005 to Command 2nd MAW (Fwd) and his thoughts on current events effecting the Marine Corps.
One of most interesting parts of Boomer’s personality as a leader is his capacity to making serving both challenging and enjoyable, and you’ll get a sense of that in this interview. His comments relative to “marines united” are direct, and he doesn’t mince words. A GREAT INTERVIEW.
