GRP 120-Warriors Heart: Two Brothers Serving in Special Missions in The War on Terror

For this week's podcast, I have on Tom and Scot Spooner. Both served in the infantry than became Special Forces Engineers. After 9/11 Tom who joined the Army before Scot went to selection and made it into the Army’s Special Missions Unit as an operator. For the next decade, he deployed without a break into combat as an operator and a sniper.

Scot was on an instructor tour at the Special Forces schoolhouse where he taught everything explosives for young men becoming Green Berets. Once Scot’s instructor time was up he went into the Special Missions Unit as apart of the heavy breacher’s program. They’ve been deployed to Iraq at the same time and discuss what that was like. We talked about their new podcast Original Freedom, Post Traumatic Stress, and several other topics. Enjoy.

GRP 114- Force has no place where there is need of Skill-Herodotus: A Special Missions Command Sergeant Major 

We have a very special guest on for this week’s podcast. Command Sergeant Major Thomas Satterly joins us. CSM Satterly served as a Special Missions operator in the U.S. Army for 20 years serving in various leadership roles. His first experience in combat was during the various operations working as apart of Task Force Ranger in Mogadishu in 1993. We talked about his role in capturing Osman Atto which was portrayed in the movie “Black Hawk Down”. CSM Satterly was on the ground for October 3rd when two Blackhawk helicopters were shot down. At the time it became the longest sustained firefight since the Vietnam war. 

Two snipers from Tom’s unit were awarded the congressional Medal of Honor sacrificing themselves to save one of the pilots of the downed helicopter. We talked about what it was like serving before and during the Global war on terror. Tom told stories from his time in selection and talked about some of the different leadership roles he worked in at the unit.  Enjoy.

GRP 100- For the 100th episode of the Global Recon Podcast we have an extremely special episode. On with us is retired Special Missions Operator Dave Nielsen. Dave served first with the 75th Ranger Regiment and then went into a Special Missions unit as an assaulter, dog handler, and sniper. His story was featured in the HBO documentary released on the 13th of this month called "War Dogs" executive produced by actor Channing Tatum.

This documentary shows the story of three dog handlers and their canine counterparts from the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). It's a raw, realistic view of what it's like going into combat with these warrior dogs and what its like post-military. Dave talked about his combat jump into Panama in 1989 as a young Ranger. He shared stories of his dog "Pepper" who was killed while rooting out an enemy from a sewer hole in Iraq on the banks of the Tigris River. They searched for her all night but had to leave once the sun was coming up as they were in enemy-held territory. We talked about the mindset required to pass selection for special operations, and the mindset required to surmount any obstacle in life. Enjoy. RIP Pepper.
