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.

After his first contract was up he enlisted into the Navy and began the grueling process to become a Navy SEAL. Eddie served multiple tours of duty as a SEAL before joining Naval Special Warfare Development Group which is better known as SEAL Team 6.  

 

Penney shared his experiences in BUDs with us. We talked about deploying into combat and having the mindset required to serve as an operator over several years of warfighting.

None of us do. A warrior’s death, you can’t get any higher than that. It’s horrible for the family, they don’t want to hear that, but for us, the guys at our command, we’re okay with it. That is our duty, the highest calling

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 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.
