We’re back from a podcasting hiatus with a great episode. I spent my fourth of July morning talking with Army Colonel Scott Kelly. Colonel Kelly spent over 23 years in the military working in various roles as a commanding officer. We touched on several topics including special operations selection, leading men at the pinnacle of combat arms in special missions, family, and the large task of running an Army. Colonel Kelly is also the director of the Green Beret Project which does invaluable work with at risk youth. Please check them out. Enjoy.

GRP 111-SOFREP Posting Footage of Americans Killed in Combat

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 99-Our guest for this weeks episode is Jason Hall. Jason wrote the screen play for "American Sniper" and is the director for "Thank You For Your Service". His latest film is based on the book of the same title written by David Finkel. It's centered around Adam Schumann a U.S. Army Combat veteran and some of the final moments of this last deployment into Iraq with a focus on his return home. This movie highlights the struggle that some combat veterans face upon returning from war not only with the physical and mental damage , but in getting help from Veterans Affairs.

Jason shared a funny story about how he met Navy SEAL Sniper Chris Kyle. We talked about what it was like working behind the scenes for this film, and some of the issues that are faced by combat veterans. Enjoy.

GRP 96-Corporal Cameron Baird is one of Australia’s most highly decorated warriors. He was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions in leading a team of Australian Commando’s assaulting an enemy strong hold on June 22, 2013 in Afghanistan.  Author Ben Mckelvey just published the book “The Commando: The life and death of Cameron Baird”.

 

I have Ben on for this podcast alongside former Australian Special Forces operator Eddie Robinson. Cam and Eddie were best friends having grown up in Special Forces together. We talked about the process of writing the book, and Ben sitting down with Cameron’s wonderful parents Doug, and Kaye Baird. Ben and Eddie shared some details from the book and it really gives some insight into a man like Cam who not only was a remarkable warrior, but was also a deep thinker with interest in philosophy and history.

 

Eddie shares a story of a time when they were on patrol in Afghanistan and the children of this particular village were running alongside the vehicle’s probably hoping to get some candy or water. They had nothing left to give them so Eddie decided to hand them bottles of hot sauce. Cam proceeds to tell Eddie this will likely get them into a fight. A few minutes later they got ambushed. LOL
