GRP 108-"By Strength and Guile" A Conversation with American and British Operators 
We have some great guest on for this episode. Back on the podcast is retired Navy SEAL Boyd Renner. Boyd served for 28 years in the Navy all of that as a Navy SEAL. With 23 years spent at Naval Special Warfare Development Group. Bob joined us as well and Bob served for 16 years as a Royal Marine in the British military.

We talked about Boyd getting his first tattoo with his wife’s DNA encapsulated into it via his company Everence. We discussed approaching and dealing with difficult situations in life, the meaning of tattoo’s, and many other topics. Enjoy.

Scroll down to episode 64. This is an older episode.

This episode was co-hosted by @Mission_Critical. Back on for this episode is my friend Tu Lam from @RoninTactics.  Because of the experiences of Chantel, and Tu I thought it would be a good idea to discuss Africa. We discuss the difficulties of the natural terrain, of the animals that inhabit Africa. We talked transnational terrorism and groups that rotate between Africa, the Middle East, and South East Asia. Africa is a complex region. Tu spent several years in Africa fighting in Libya, and several other areas that are considered terror hotbeds. Both he and Chantel share several stories of their time in the service. Below is an excerpt. 
John: The Sudan was a safe haven for Osama Bin Laden prior to 2001. There's a whole bunch of training camps with different groups like Boko Haram. Look at the Philippine’s where the terrorist would filter into the country, get some training and filter back into the middle east and conduct operations there. Now with the rise of ISIS, a lot of these groups in Africa are pledging allegiance to them which can cause problems down the line. 
Tu Lam: What I see John is the majority of these future terrorists they don't have an out, man. You have to put yourself in their shoes. I could be the guy who goes in and hates the enemy and drops a 500 lb JDAM(bomb) or goes out and do direct action missions but I see the bigger picture. These are the guys that when they're 8 years old these rebel forces go into their villages hand you an AK, and say gun down your mom and dad then hack your sister up with a machete, or we'll hack you up with a machete. Just like the Philippine’s, Abu Sayyaf. They don't have an out, man. #GlobalReconPodcast #RoninTactics #SpecialForces #Africa #CIF #CounterTerrorism #Libya #Benghazi #Army #BritishArmy

GRP 135-Wherever you go, go with all your heart: A Special Missions Operator at war - We have a very special guest on for this week’s podcast. Joining me on today's episode is retired, Sergeant Major Jamey Caldwell. @1minuteout began his career as an Army Ranger before he went to selection to join the Army’s Special Missions Unit. On September 11th, 2001 he was forward deployed overseas. Within the coming weeks and months, his unit would be amongst the very first Americans to enter into Afghanistan. 
They were tasked with killing Osama Bin Laden. Bin Laden was tracked to the Tora Bora cave complex which is apart of the Spin Ghar mountain range in eastern Afghanistan. Caldwell would deploy into combat 14 times over the following 14 years in the war against terrorism. We discussed selection, leadership, mindset, and many other topics. Enjoy. You can learn about the battle of Tora Bora from the Special Missions commander on the ground "Dalton Fury" in his book "Kill Bin Laden".

    GRP 135-Wherever you go, go with all your heart: A Special Missions Operator at war - We have a very special guest on for this week’s podcast. Joining me on today's episode is retired, Sergeant Major Jamey Caldwell. @1minuteout began his career as an Army Ranger before he went to selection to join the Army’s Special Missions Unit. On September 11th, 2001 he was forward deployed overseas. Within the coming weeks and months, his unit would be amongst the very first Americans to enter into Afghanistan.
    They were tasked with killing Osama Bin Laden. Bin Laden was tracked to the Tora Bora cave complex which is apart of the Spin Ghar mountain range in eastern Afghanistan. Caldwell would deploy into combat 14 times over the following 14 years in the war against terrorism. We discussed selection, leadership, mindset, and many other topics. Enjoy. You can learn about the battle of Tora Bora from the Special Missions commander on the ground "Dalton Fury" in his book "Kill Bin Laden".

On with me for this week’s podcast is recently retired Chief Warrant Officer 4 Mike Rutledge. @michael_g_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.  #GlobalReconPodcast #NightStalkersDontQuit #NavySEAL #160thSOAR #Aviator #SpecialOperations #JSOC #Warrior

This week’s podcast was recorded in July 2017 with Kurdish fighter Joanna Palani. Joanna is currently in prison in Denmark due to their laws against Danish citizens traveling to Syria to fight. Joanna’s family is from the western region of Iran. She was born in a U.N refugee camp in the desert of Ramadi, Iraq.

Growing up there were sections of the road her brother and his peers traversed en route to school that were littered with IED’s. During a commute to school, he was killed by a roadside bomb. Eventually, her immediate family moved to Denmark where she spent several years living before dropping out of college to go join the uprising in Syria. If you want to hear from a woman on the ground this is a must listen.

0:00-News reports on the fighting in Syria

5:00-Introduction to Joanna Palani, a Kurdish female fighter with the YPJ

This is Tom Pecora describing his time in Mogadishu, Somalia in 1993 working for the Central Intelligence Agency

https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/grp-126-in-chaos-there-is-cosmos-in-all-disorder-secret/id1077045014?i=1000434100484&mt=2

I was there for about 50 days. We were running protection details for our case officers. Officers were out collecting data in a collaborative effort with the U.S. military. Mohammed Farah Aidid was former a friendly to U.N forces. His forces killed a bunch of Pakistani U.N. troops. From that moment on he became enemy number one. The U.S. decided to bring in some heavy hitters. They brought in the Rangers and hiding within the Rangers was Delta Force.

That was later on with the Black Hawk Down incident. Aidid knew who we were because he was a former friendly. At one point he had facial descriptions of 3 out of 4 of us. He had license plates on most of our cars. He put a $20,000 reward on our heads. This is where we really learned the craft of low profile protective operations. Since approximately 1990 until I left in 2013 we never lost a protectee. We only lost one Officer during that time. This is for our primary mission in mobile security, moving our people from A to B, and running clandestine operations. 
When we put in a position where we had to do static more defensive positions like protecting a site which is really not our primary we weren’t so effective. We weren’t in control in those situations. We were just added security. Examples would be Khost, and the situation in Benghazi. #GlobalReconPodcast #IgRecon #CIA #BlackHawkDown #Mogadishu #Khost #Benghazi #SecurityOfficer #CounterTerrorism picture credit to @redback2charlie

He had license plates on most of our cars. He put a $20,000 reward on our heads. This is where we really learned the craft of low profile protective operations. Since approximately 1990 until I left in 2013 we never lost a protectee. We only lost one Officer during that time. This is for our primary mission in mobile security, moving our people from A to B, and running clandestine operations.
    When we put in a position where we had to do static more defensive positions like protecting a site which is really not our primary we weren’t so effective. We weren’t in control in those situations. We were just added security. Examples would be Khost, and the situation in Benghazi. #GlobalReconPodcast #IgRecon #CIA #BlackHawkDown #Mogadishu #Khost #Benghazi #SecurityOfficer #CounterTerrorism picture credit to @redback2charlie

I was there for about 50 days. We were running protection details for our case officers. Officers were out collecting data in a collaborative effort with the U.S. military. Mohammed Farah Aidid was former a friendly to U.N forces. His forces killed a bunch of Pakistani U.N. troops. From that moment on he became enemy number one. The U.S. decided to bring in some heavy hitters. They brought in the Rangers and hiding within the Rangers was Delta Force.

Nothing fires the warrior's heart more with courage than to find himself and his comrades at the point of annihilation, at the brink of being routed and overrun, and then to dredge not merely from one's own bowels or guts but from one's own discipline and training the presence of mind not to panic, not to yield to the possession of despair, but instead to complete those homely acts of order which Dienekes had ever declared the supreme accomplishment of the warrior: to perform the commonplace under far-from-commonplace conditions.

This is Dave Nielsen’s response when i asked about the civil war that took place between Sunni and Shia Muslims in Iraq during the U.S invasion. Dave has multiple combat tours with the Ranger Regiment and the Special Missions Unit:

I can’t tell ya how many hits we did where we’re watching somebody. They stop. Car jack somebody. Kidnap somebody while we’re watching them. We go hit them. Release the dudes out of the trunks of their car. The confused looks on their faces. We caught somebody that captured somebody else released one of em and kept one of em. Weird stuff like that happened all of the time.

Story about Medal of Honor recipient Franklyn Miller a MACV-SOG Green Beret with multiple consecutive tours of duty in Vietnam. Fucking hero.

The moment I saw the mangled trees I concluded the pilot must have tried to put his aircraft down in the clearing and hit the trees on the approach. About halfway to the plane, the grass began to drop away, and we could clearly see the aircraft. We froze.

Thirty-five to forty enemy troops were sitting in the thigh-deep grass around the plane.

It took us another hour to backtrack and traverse the distance around the field to the other side. our world collapsed. We were moving in the following order: Hyuk on point, followed by me, Yube, Hobart, Prep, Green, and Gai.

The entire jungle erupted and shuddered. Strong shock waves assaulted my body and my vision blurred, like a camera being jarred. My initial reaction was to hit the ground, because the first thing you learn about combat is that anything standing gets hit.

Hyuk and I immediately dropped into crouches and quickly glanced at each other. I looked back down the hill toward the rest of the team. All I could see was a cloud of gray explosive powder. As I stared at the gray cloud, a man staggered out toward me. As he got closer, I realized it was Prep. He was fucked up. Bad. The explosion had knocked his lower jaw completely off. His weapon and ruck were gone, and his clothing was shredded.

I grabbed Hyuk and pushed him toward Prep, saying, “Take care of that motherfucker!” Those were my exact words, said out of unbelievable rage at what had happened. #GlobalReconPodcast #MACVSOG #FrankMiller #GreenBerets

  • Search Global Recon Podcast on ITunes, or click the link in my bio. Leave us a review, subscribe, and download the episodes on ITunes. This is an older episode number 41. 
On for this episode is former US Navy SEAL Corpsman, and Sniper Kevin Lacz. @realkevinlacz is the author of the New York Times best selling book The Last Punisher: A SEAL Team THREE Sniper's True Account of the Battle of Ramadi. Kevin was apart of a Sniper element with US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. We talked about what its like going through BUDS which is the selection course for Navy SEALs. We talk Ramadi, mindset, SOF Medics, and some history. Green Beret Staff Sgt. Matthew V. Thompson, 28, of Irvine, died Tuesday while advising Afghan forces on patrol in southern Afghanistan. RIP brother. Below is an excerpt from our conversation.

John Hendricks: The book is basically about your experience during a rotation to Ramadi. The insurgency moved from Fallujah to Ramadi. A very dangerous place. You were deployed with Chris Kyle, and he was a close friend of yours. 
Kevin Lacz: That 2006 deployment was the most pronounced out of my deployments. You’re right Ramadi at that point in time was kind of the epicenter of the insurgency in Iraq. It was also primed to be the template for the surge. We deployed in April 06 in support of the the 1st, the 502nd, the 36, 38 Marines in a new campaign to win hearts and minds. We supported them. We were mainly there to support them from a couple of different platforms. One was direct action missions. 
Presence patrols. Working with the Iraqi security forces patrolling daytime, and night time in these areas. The third was the Sniper element which proved to be the most effective. One of the gentlemen in our platoon was Chris Kyle. That deployment our platoon had over 230 confirmed kills, and Chris had 101 of those. Task unit together had 330 confirmed kills. That’s not airstrikes, rifle mainly sniper. #GlobalReconPodcast #NavySEALs #TheLastPunisher #RIPStaffSGTMatthewThompson #GWOT @navalbuds @onlyeasyday  #Podcast #ITunes #Soundcloud

    On for this episode is former US Navy SEAL Corpsman, and Sniper Kevin Lacz. @realkevinlacz is the author of the New York Times best selling book The Last Punisher: A SEAL Team THREE Sniper's True Account of the Battle of Ramadi. Kevin was apart of a Sniper element with US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. We talked about what its like going through BUDS which is the selection course for Navy SEALs. We talk Ramadi, mindset, SOF Medics, and some history. Green Beret Staff Sgt. Matthew V. Thompson, 28, of Irvine, died Tuesday while advising Afghan forces on patrol in southern Afghanistan. RIP brother. Below is an excerpt from our conversation.

    John Hendricks: The book is basically about your experience during a rotation to Ramadi. The insurgency moved from Fallujah to Ramadi. A very dangerous place. You were deployed with Chris Kyle, and he was a close friend of yours.
    Kevin Lacz: That 2006 deployment was the most pronounced out of my deployments. You’re right Ramadi at that point in time was kind of the epicenter of the insurgency in Iraq. It was also primed to be the template for the surge. We deployed in April 06 in support of the the 1st, the 502nd, the 36, 38 Marines in a new campaign to win hearts and minds. We supported them.

A thousand years from now, Leonidas declared, two thousand, three thousand years hence, men a hundred generations yet unborn may for their private purposes make journey to our country. They will come, scholars perhaps, or travelers from beyond the sea, prompted by curiosity regarding the past or appetite for knowledge of the ancients.

They will peer out across our plain and probe among the stone and rubble of our nation. What will they learn of us? Their shovels will unearth neither brilliant palaces nor temples; their picks will prise forth no everlasting architecture or art. What will remain of the Spartans? Not monuments of marble or bronze, but this, what we do here today.” Out beyond the Narrows the enemy trumpets sounded.

Clearly now could be seen the vanguard of the Persians and the chariots and armored convoys of their King. "Now eat a good breakfast, men.

In 2012 a good friend of mine had been at the Special Missions unit for over 20 years. He’d been at a similar point where his kids were getting older and moving out. Marriages are strained as they are during a time of war. This guy could of should of would of been the Command Sergeant Major at the Special Missions Unit. He was that talented. Right after he left the Unit he picked up a job contracting overseas. He got killed in Afghanistan. 
I’ll tell you what. That really made me angry. It made me feel responsible as a leader in the Special Missions Unit. What are we doing? How are we providing options? For our men and women after they leave service where they don’t have to fight?” -Special Missions Lieutenant Colonel and COO of the Guardian Group Jeff Tiegs @theguardiangroup picture credit to @petapocalypse #GlobalReconPodcast #K9 #DirectSupport #CAG #CombatApplicationsGroup #Operators #TheGuardianGroup #CounteringTerrorism #counterchildsextrafficking

Below is an excerpt from the episode.

Special Forces operator Chuck Ritter:

In the video you see me coming around the corner shot. So basically we under estimated the enemy force present in the area. Our partners were the Afghan Commando’s, and we had very few Americans on the ground.  We came in at night, and it was clear all night. Then in the morning right when the sun came up the enemy actually closed to within 5 to 10 meters of our battle positions, and started throwing hand grenade’s over the wall, and were really lighting us up. 
So we were going out trying to push these guys back off our perimeter. The fact that the terrain was very maze like allowed them the freedom of maneuverability to move on us. Aerial imagery, and everything else didn’t paint the right picture on the ground. An overhead drone spotted an ambush, and the operator was telling us that there was an enemy ambush set up a couple hundred meters away. We were trying to flank that ambush, but in reality the ambush was right there. We turned the corner, an Afghan Commando got shot took a round to the leg, and it blew off some fingers. A good majority of the rest of the Afghan Commando’s ran away. 
It was me, my medic, and EOD guy. All of the fast movers moved off station, so the only thing I had overhead was Apache’s. So I started working fire to provide cover for this casualty.” If you have any questions about anything you heard on the podcast send an email to Podcast@globalrecon.net #GlobalReconPodcast #ITunes #SpecialForces #Wounded #Valor #FreedomIsntFree #GreenBerets #Afghanistan #Combat #18Delta #Medics #NorthAmericanRescue #NAR #USASOC #DOL @northamericanrescue @mission_critical
