The Military Assistance Command Vietnam - Studies and Observations Group, also known as SOG, and the heroics of these men during Vietnam are nothing short of incredible. A secret 8-year war in Vietnam was fought outside of the conventional war by SOG and their indigenous troops in Cambodia, Laos, and North Vietnam from 1964 to 1972. These missions would later be described as suicide missions. John Stryker Meyer entered the Army on 1 December 1966. He completed basic training at Ft. Dix, New Jersey, advanced infantry training at Ft. Gordon, Georgia, jump school at Ft. Benning, Georgia, and graduated from the Special Forces Qualification Course in December 1967. After a 12-week training session in Ft. Gordon, on radio teletype, Meyer landed in South Vietnam in April 1968, and arrived at FOB 1 in Phu Bai in May 1968, where he joined Spike Team Idaho.

“Your mind is exponentially stronger than your body and if there is something you want to do; your mind will enable your body to find a way” -- Patty Collins, Colonel, U.S. Army (Ret.) Many of us would probably never think of amputating a portion of our leg in order to remain on active duty and continue being an athlete, but that is exactly the decision Patty made when faced with a decision following a freak accident. A remarkable story of grit and determination that you won't want to miss. Patty Collins retired from the U.S. Army after 24 years of active duty, having spent over 7 years assigned to Special Mission units within JSOC. A pioneer in her field, she was one of a small number of women to serve in Special Operations and was the first woman in the Department of Defense to complete the Military Free Fall Jumpmaster Course. Robert is a retired US Army Armor and Recruiter/Retention MSG turned Fortune 50 executive; Tom Satterly is a highly decorated retired CSM with Delta Force/CAG; Mike Rutledge is a former US Navy SEAL and US Army 160th SOAR chinook pilot who is currently on active duty.

In the words of Freddie Mercury and Queen: "Pressure pushing down on me, Pressing down on you, no man ask for, Under pressure that burns a building down, Splits a family in two, Puts people on streets Chipping around, kick my brains around the floor, These are the days it never rains but it pours".

Before Brad was kicking in doors and hunting down bad guys with 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment and later as a Tier 1 operator in “The Unit” (aka CAG or Delta Force) over the span of his 20-year U.S. Army career, he was shredding the frets on his guitar. He deployed 8 total times in support of combat operations in Mogadishu Somalia, Bosnia, and Herzegovina, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Now he’s formed a band comprised of U.S. veterans known as Silence and Light and they are donating all of their proceeds to veteran supporting organizations. Fellow members of the band Silence and Light are Fred on vocals who served in the Air Force, Brandon on drums who served as a Marine crew chief on Marine One, the presidents helicopter, Tyson on bass, a former MARSOC raider, and Jason Everman on guitar, who many know from his time with Nirvana and Soundgarden who then joined the Army with 2nd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment and then 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) before leaving the military and becoming a Pat Tillman Scholar.

After serving in the military for any length of time, veterans suffer from multiple ailments due to prolonged stress on the body. Combine that with Post traumatic stress (PTS) and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) from those who have experienced combat and it’s easy to understand why veterans are seeking alternative approaches outside of pharmaceutical products to help them heal. Natural phytocannabinoid supplements, such as hemp-derived Isolate Cannabidiol (CBD) or Full Spectrum CBD products, contain either no detectable levels of THC or up to .3% THC and are often used to help veterans through some of their ailments. UnCanna is a Veteran owned and operated hemp phytocannabinoid (CBD) advocacy, education, and sales company operating out of Denver, Colorado. They are vertically integrated, from seed to sale, with true industry leaders, allowing them to provide the highest quality products on the market and remain a leading, trusted voice of advocacy in the Veteran community. Coby Cochran is a former US Army special operations veteran who founded UnCanna after experiencing the positive effects of CBD in regards to numerous conditions. He's made it his personal goal to educate the Veteran community on the benefits of hemp-derived CBD. Learn more about UnCanna at http://www.uncanna.com.

Perception is reality. In today's society and the jury of public opinion, once people create a perception about you, it becomes reality. It then becomes harder to sway their first impression or opinion.

Having a feeling of losing your 'tribe' and your sense of identity is difficult. Isolation, depression, and anger can easily creep in. In this episode, we are joined by Jonathan Lambert and we dive into the world under the sea and discuss the challenges of homecoming and belonging. It is a problem many veterans face post military. “Humans don’t mind hardship, in fact they thrive on it; what they mind is not feeling necessary. Modern society has perfected the art of making people not feel necessary. It's time for that to end.” ― Sebastian Junger, Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging Jonathan Lambert is a retired USN Submariner.

Selection and indoctrination. Underwater Egress Training. Combat Diver Course. Advanced Paramedic Training. Airborne Training. Military Free Fall. Survival and Rescue. Rope Climbing. Pararescuemen (also known as PJs) are United States Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) and Air Combat Command (ACC) operators tasked with recovery and medical treatment of personnel in humanitarian and combat environments. The pipeline to become a PJ is long and arduous. The maroon beret worn by Pararescuemen and Combat Rescue Officers was authorized by HQ USAF in 1966 and is the second beret to be authorized for universal wear, after the US Army Special Forces Beret. The beret symbolizes the blood sacrificed by fellow Pararescuemen and their devotion to duty by aiding others in distress. Brian Silva is a former PJ Team Leader and Indoc Instructor. He enlisted in the USAF to be a PJ in 2005 because he wanted more out of his life and felt like he was called to give more. He decided to join Pararescue because he loved the mission, no matter what... you are going to save lives. In this episode Brian shares what it takes to be a PJ and what he's seen from students arriving at Indoc unprepared.

“Greg, Greg, we are under attack,” were the last words from Ambassador John Christopher Stevens to his deputy Greg Hicks over the phone from Benghazi office shortly after the attack began around 9:30 p.m. “If you don’t get here we are going to die,” the radio operator at the tactical operations center in Benghazi pronounced on the radio from the improvised consulate. Glen ”Bub” Doherty was part of the quick reaction force consisting of eight U.S. military or former military that left Tripoli in the rush to help rescue the Stevens and his colleagues at the consulate. His task was the same as the task of the 21 CIA personnel at the CIA annex one mile from where Ambassador Chris Stevens’ and the others came under attack. Glen Doherty’s Libya assignment was supposed to be his last for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). He had been offered a more suitable job in the private sector that would have allowed him to get out of the line of fire. Written by Eric Sof. In this episode his best friend, Sean Lake, joined the crew to talk about he and BUBs childhood dreams growing up as snowboarders, to how BUB became a SEAL, served on a SEAL team, was tragically killed in Benghazi, and how Sean was supposed to use the money left to him by BUBS to throw a big party, but how his friends legacy lives on through The Glen Doherty Foundation and BUBS Naturals.

When an Airman needs saving, it’s the PJs duty to do everything they can to bring them home. As members of Air Force Special Operations, Pararescue (PJ) specialists rescue and recover downed aircrews from hostile or otherwise unreachable areas. These highly trained experts perform rescues in every type of terrain and partake in every part of the mission, from search and rescue, to combat support to providing emergency medical treatment, in order to ensure that every mission is a successful one. A lifelong student of living, Matt Schollard believes the purpose of existence is experience, exploration of Self, and evolution. Raised globally, his exposure to a multitude of cultures at an early age left a lasting impact on his quest to find 'meaning' in life. Inspired by Eastern philosophies, punk rock, yoga, windsurfing, and the overwhelming commonalities he identified in the people of Earth, Matt shaped his own unique guiding principles that have lit the way along a diverse and inspiring path. Upon reaching legal adulthood, after an unfortunate skateboarding misunderstanding forced him to leave Australia, Matt decided that he needed to seek out the 'hardest job in the world' to test his potential. Following his will & wind, he found himself in the years-long quest to become a US Air Force Pararescueman (PJ).

Excellence and success are dependent upon the individuals willingness to put in the hard work to achieve it. A person has to know their strengths and their weaknesses before they can move forward. Even when on the firing range, every person has different ability levels and it's important that the right level of guidance is given before a person can make an improvement. Drew Estell is the owner of BaerSolutionsllc.com, and is a former Green Beret and current weapons instructor. As Drew has often said: "the more experienced shooter they are, the less feedback they should be given. Too much info, and it will hurt their progress instead of help. Less experienced shooters can have a little more feedback because they are essentially a blank canvas without as many bad habits learned. [Training each is] a balancing act and their success is going to be based off of how well you read their performance and interpret their frustrations." In this episode, Drew joins Robert, Otis McGregor, and Scott Johnson to talk about achieving excellence on a weapons range and achieving excellence in the board room - there are several similarities with both.

In the early hours of Christmas Eve 2007, Royal Marines Commando Mark Ormrod was out on a routine foot patrol in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan when he stepped on and triggered an Improvised Explosive Device. Thanks to the swift action of the men around him and the intervention of the Medical Emergency Response Team he was airlifted via helicopter to an emergency field hospital in a desperate attempt to try and save his life. An innovative and dangerous procedure carried out onboard a Chinook helicopter en route to the hospital did save his life. He woke up three days later in the UK in Selly Oak Hospital, Birmingham: Both legs amputated above the knee and his right arm amputated above the elbow. He was the UK’s first triple amputee to survive the Afghanistan conflict. Mark joins Robert, Scott Kinder, and Scott Johnson to share his story of how he never lets his circumstances or past define who he is and his relentless effort to live life to the fullest. Mark is always free to share his story to inspire others and he finds ways to give back to those who can benefit from his amazing journey.
