GRP 105- Very special guest on with me for this week’s podcast. Retired Special Operations Sergeant Major Chris Dutch Moyer came on. SGM Moyer served in the U.S. Army for 31 years. He first served as a Tanker, an Infantrymen, and an Army Ranger, before going deeper into the Joint Special Operations Command. We talked about the mindset required to remain at the top of your game for so long. We talked about coming back from injuries as he’s gotten badly injured while training for combat. 
    
The special operations forces are constantly training, deploying, and fighting. We talked about how the forces to some degree have burned out and how the military is getting better at mitigating the burnout. We talked about the “golden age of special operations” which refers to the last 16 plus years of war where the operators have lead the fight against America’s enemies. We discussed Africa, transnational terrorism, and the geopolitical threat posed by China. SGM Moyer shared some of the school’s and specialties he’s had while in such as being a dog handler. We were able to discuss some of the benefits of having dogs running with operators in combat. Lastly, we discussed his consulting company called DCM Consulting USA. They are working on getting
a website back up but for now, you can contact him via his Instagram page which is listed below. Enjoy.

GRP 104- This episode is co-hosted by the creator of The Veterans Project U.S. Army Veteran Tim Kolczak. Our guest for today is British Army combat veteran Geraint Jones. Gez served multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq. We took a dive into what it was like serving during the height of the Iraq war in Basra where the British military was primarily operating. Basra at the time was like the wild west and Gez shares stories of his time patrolling into some of these areas as well as the complexity of dealing with very tight rules of engagement as a British warfighter.

 

He shares some hilarious and tragic stories of life in Basra. We touched on several topics to include tourniquet use, politics in war, dealing with extreme heat while conducting operations, and searching for roadside bombs. This is a good one.

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.
