GRP 111-I’m joined for this episode by two friends of mine. Two guys who are highly respected and experienced Green Berets from 3rd Special Forces Group. Bryan Myers from Raise The Black, and Kevin Tretter from Warrior Woven. We gathered today to discuss the helmet cam footage released by ISIS showing the final moments of three Special Forces Green Berets from 3rd Special Forces group and one support member. 

SOFREP, a company comprised of former Special Operations veterans put their logo on this enemy edited propaganda video and released it saying the American public needs to see the realities of war. This is done against the wishes of the Gold Star families of the men killed on that day. I’ve communicated with Debbie Gannon the mother of Jeremiah Johnson, who’s helmet cam footage of the incident is online. She’s watched the video and allowed me to state on behalf of the family they are disgusted by the release of this video by SOFREP and want it taken down. I also read a statement made by the sister of Jeremiah Johnson regarding the video. 

Here is the link to sign a petition to have SOFREP remove the video:

GRP 94 Echo in Ramadi: Marine Corps Major Scott Huesing

GRP 94-It’s a great honor to have the United States Marine Corps Major Scott Huesing on the podcast. Major Huesing served for 24 years with 10 deployments conducting operations in over 60 countries worldwide. He’s the author of the upcoming book “Echo in Ramadi”.

 

Now Major Scott A. Huesing, the commander who led Echo Company through Ramadi, takes readers back to the streets of Ramadi in a visceral, gripping portrayal of modern urban combat. Bound together by brotherhood, honor, and the horror they faced, Echo's Marines battled day-to-day on the frontline of a totally different kind of war, without rules, built on chaos. In Echo in Ramadi, Huesing brings these resilient, resolute young men to life and shows how the savagery of urban combat left indelible scars on their bodies, psyches, and souls.

 

We discussed Transnational terrorism, Ramadi, Leadership in combat and Gold Star families.

GRP 93- It’s with great reverence that I introduce our guest for this week’s podcast. Mark Donaldson is a retired Australian Special Air Service Regiment trooper and recipient of the Victoria Cross. The Victoria Cross is Australia’s highest award for most conspicuous bravery, or some daring or pre-eminent act of valor or self-sacrifice, or extreme devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy. It’s the Australian equivalent to our Medal of Honor. 

We discussed Mark’s early life and motivation for joining the Army as he experienced a traumatic event with the loss of his mother at the age of 19. We discussed how one can turn a tragic event into a motivating force. We discussed the mindset required to train for and get selected into a Special Operations unit like the SAS, and how that same mindset can help surmount obstacles in life. We discussed leadership, the bottom-up approach, and the changing strategy and role for western forces in Afghanistan. This is part one of the interview. The second part will be released within the coming days. 

Three U.S. Army Special Forces Green Berets have been killed in action this week while on patrol through western Mali, in Niger. We’d like to send our deepest condolences to the friends, teammates, and family of these fallen warriors.
