Veteran Podcasts

I have to spend a lot of time in a car so I’ve just started using podcasts.

Hazard Ground is one that I listen to. No politics just stories of vets who now work with organizations that help other vets.
The vets come on and tell their story and then tell about the orgs they work with.

Any others that you guys listen to?

Where's the El-tee?

I’ve sent him a couple of DU Mails. Maybe he’s just reading the board and not signing in.

So if you are doing that, check in and let us know.

Otherwise we’ll start telling jokes.

RIP SSG Fronius 7th Special Forces 1987 E-Salv

I always knew that there was more to the story. It was on CNN the other night.

SSG Fronius was part of a Mobile Training Team that was betrayed by a Cuban spy working for the DIA. Anna Montes


She had strong objections to our presence in Central American and Cuba but she didn't use any of the avenues to address her concerns. She didn't notify her chain of command, didn't leak anything, didn't do any of the things.

She sat across from that team and betrayed them.

Kudos to the DIA counterintelligence agent who made her pay

Mosul - three weeks ago

Graphic Warning.
Here's an example of what's going on in the 2nd Battle of Mosul.

It's a CNN report of what ISIS is doing to civilians and the steps US and aid groups are trying to help. The light colored clothing along the base of the wall is a group of civilians killed while trying to escape.

Beirut Marine Barracks Bombing Fast Facts

CNN Library
(CNN) -- Here is a look at what you need to know about the 1983 bombing at a Marine compound in Beirut, Lebanon that killed 241 U.S. service personnel.

Facts:
October 23, 1983 - 241 U.S. service personnel -- including 220 Marines and 21 other service personnel -- are killed by a truck bomb at a Marine compound in Beirut, Lebanon. Three hundred service members had been living at the four-story building at the airport in Beirut. There were 1,800 Marines stationed in Beirut at the time.

A multi-national force with units from France, Italy and the United Kingdom was also on peacekeeping duty in Lebanon at the same time. At the same time the Marine barracks was hit, a suicide bomber drove a pickup truck full of explosives and crashed into a building housing French paratroopers. Approximately 58 French soldiers were killed in the attack.

Not forgotten

Lightning injures Army Ranger instructors, students

Dozens of Army Ranger students and instructors were injured after they were hit by lightning during training. The students were learning lightning protection protocols at the time of the incident.

All 40 of the Ranger students and four instructors had returned to duty by Thursday evening, officials said. The Army initially reported nine students and two instructors remained hospitalized Thursday afternoon for observation. Their injuries were not life-threatening.

The lightning hit at 4:55 p.m. CT Wednesday at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The students were two-thirds of the way through Ranger School’s Swamp Phase.
The course’s two female students, who are part of the Army’s gender-integrated assessment of the grueling two-month school, were not involved, officials said.

Good thing they were having a class. Glad they are all ok.
