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.

The Choke Point Podcast, Cro Medical Gear, Army Rangers, SARC’s

 

GRP 34-On this episode I conducted two interviews. The first is with T a Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsman (SARC) in the Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC). T spent a number of years in the US Navy attached to MARSOC, and we were able to discuss some aspects of trauma medicine. T is apart of a company called Cro Medical Gear which is owned and operated by SARC’s. They are working on developing a product line of medical gear for the advanced care provider initially, and then will release products for civilians as well.

 

The Second interview was with 3 former Army Rangers from the 3rd Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment who run a podcast called The Choke Point. Chance Davis SSG Former Ranger Medic, James Webb SGT Ranger Retired, and Paul Martinez SSG Ranger Retired. These guys are awesome indivus who’ve overcome many obstacles, and who stay busying farming, and working with other veterans. They’ve got books in the works, and are forming an organization to help veterans in need. Below is an excerpt from the podcast.

 

Paul Martinez: I remember that. We’re having like a Turkey dinner in the middle of Afghanistan in this giant castle compound. It was weird man. I felt like Genghis Khan. You’re looking at these giant Himalayan mountains covered in snow, but its hot where you are. Doc’s got a turkey on the stick. Your extremely well fed. Its one of those things where your sitting in this house, your eating turkey dinner with your best buddies, you’re in arguably one of the worst places on the planet. I couldn’t have been happier. As soon as the sun goes down were back out fighting through ambushes. It was some pretty gnarly fighting.

GRP 29- This nation has lost a piece of history in the quiet of the night. Master Chief (ret.) Tom Eagles was one of the most highly decorated Corpsman of the Vietnam War with service spanning three decades. Doc Eagles is responsible for a lot of changes in combat medicine over the past 50 years. He spent a number of years working with North American Rescue helping develop life saving equipment, and then having it integrated into the US Military. We have a former Special Forces Medic Chris on discussing some of his experiences in combat, and a brother who was killed overseas. Below is an excerpt from Chris. 

 

 

 Chris: My ODA was constantly called down to an area near the Pakistan boarder that the Taliban were giving trouble to a very isolated infantry unit Fobbed down there. We went down there with information that they’d been stashing explosive material in this old abandoned village. Stepped out of our vehicle’s, and immediately took small arms fire. Returned fire and they ran away. We advanced up the hill, and once we reached the top they trigged an IED. They buried it too deep, but it still injured some of my teammates.

 

One in particular got shrapnel all the way up his back. When I was treating him we called in the MEDEVAC we attempted to put him on a stretcher, and he said “Don’t you dare! I’m not letting these cowards see me on a stretcher on the way to the MEDEVAC”. So we walked him to the helicopter and he got on standing. We went right back out the next morning, got into another firefight ended up engaging, and killing the majority of the guys responsible for the IED attack.
