On with me for this week’s podcast is recently retired Chief Warrant Officer 4 Mike Rutledge. Rutledge has had a unique career path having served for 30 years in the United States military. He entered the Navy as a Search and Rescue crewmen deploying around the world in that capacity. He later became a Navy SEAL where he served for 8 years.

He’s always had a passion for flying. After serving in the SEAL Teams Mike went on to serve as an Aviator in the Army’s 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR). The “Night Stalkers” are the best helicopter pilots in the world. They were born out of the failure of Operation Eagle Claw in which Army Special Missions operators attempted to rescue American hostages in Iran. Mike is an extremely humble warrior who deployed into combat 15 times. We discussed history, the warrior mindset, women in combat arms and many other topics. This is a gem.

GRP 128-The 20 Year Journey of a Navy SEAL Sniper: Jack Carr

 

On for this week’s podcast is former Navy SEAL Officer turned author Jack Carr. He led special operations teams as a Team Leader, Platoon Commander, Troop Commander and Task Unit Commander. Over his 20 years in Naval Special Warfare he transitioned from an enlisted SEAL sniper specializing in communications and intelligence, to a junior officer leading assault and sniper teams in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was on a pre 9/11 training deployment on Guam when the Twin Towers were hit. His team immediately deployed to the middle east to take over ship take down operations against Saddam Hussein from SEAL Team 3 who rotated into Afghanistan.

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.
