The tougher the experience someone has in the military, the more they take away from it – and the more bonded they remain to the people who people who persevered beside them. Attending West Point and Army Ranger school provide plenty of opportunities to be tough and to learn to work as a team. Brendan Krasinski is a graduate of West Point and the Army Ranger school. During his six years in the Army, he served and trained in Egypt and Kuwait. Although he initially held a position in sales after leaving the military, he quickly realized it was not what he wanted to do with his life and pivoted to law school, eventually becoming a defense attorney. In this episode of Veteran Voices, produced in partnership with Vets2Industry, host Scott Luton speaks with Brendan about: • Why the correct answer to the question, “Why are you losing weight?” at West Point is always ‘exercise.' • Making life transitions more successful by looking at all of your options before making a choice • His top piece of advice for anyone planning to transition from the military to a civilian career with full recognition of their experience and skills Additional Links & Resources: Learn more about Veteran Voices here: https://supplychainnow.com/program/veteran-voices Subscribe to Veteran Voices and other Supply Chain Now programs here: https://supplychainnow.com/subscribe Learn more about Vets2Industry: https://vets2industry.org/ This episode was hosted by Scott Luton.

Ray McPadden is a former Army Ranger, serving with 2nd Battalion/75th Ranger Regiment. Inspired to serve after 9/11, he began his time in the Army as an Infantry Officer with the 10th Mountain Division. Between Iraq and Afghanistan, he served four combat deployments, spending nearly two years fighting along the Afghan-Pakistan border during one of those tours. In fact, his unit established the first American foothold in the notorious Korengal Valley. In his relatively short time in the Army, Ray experienced the essence of combat and survival in the Infantry and in Special Operations. He's even reflected on it in two books he's written - one a memoir and the other, a war novel.

Today we hear the Combat Story of Tony Brooks, a former Army Ranger with 2nd Ranger Battalion who fought in Afghanistan early in the war and in Ramadi, Iraq. Tony's first mission was significant, being tasked with the recovery of downed chinook helicopter, Turbine 33 and The Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell in the mountains of Afghanistan. His book, Leave No Man Behind, is all about this experience as the primary search and rescue element that catalogues the mission from hitting the ground, recovering bodies, and hunting for every last man to bring them home. In this episode, we also touch on the impact of a legendary man, soldier, Ranger, and American - Pat Tillman - who had a tremendous influence on Tony (and myself for that matter). After the military, Tony went on to become a licensed chiropractor. He married the woman he refers to in the book as ‘the Unicorn' who he met as a private while stationed at Fort Lewis. I hope you enjoy his Combat Story, and the mission to bring everyone home, as much as I did. #rangers #specialoperations #operationredwings #veteran #veterans #combatstory #tonybrooks #2ndrangerbattalion #rangerbatt #rltw Find Tony Online: Book Leave No Man Behind https://www.amazon.com/Leave-Man-Behind-Unrelenting-Afghanistan/dp/1635767350 Website https://www.drtonybrooksauthor.com/ Instagram @drtonybrooks https://www.instagram.com/drtonybrooks/ Facebook Dr Tony Brooks https://www.facebook.com/DrTonyBrooks/ Find Ryan Online: Follow on Instagram @combat_stories https://www.instagram.com/combatstory Follow on Facebook @combatstoryofficial https://fb.me/combatstoryofficial Send us messages at https://m.me/combatstoryofficial Email ryan@combatstory.com Learn more about Ryan www.combatstory.com/aboutus Intro Song: Sport Rock from Audio Jungle Show Notes 0:00 - Intro 0:53 - Guest bio 1:40 - Interview begins 2:06 - Pat Tillman - One of the greatest Americans of our generation 10:35 - Finding Purpose 13:19 - Why go to the Rangers? 17:00 - The Unicorn and the long play 20:00 - Parents played it neutral 23:50 - First time in Afghanistan 30:33 - Context for Operation Red Wings 37:15 - How did you feel going into your first mission? 40:07 - Fast roping onto target 49:25 - First objective - get to the crash site 58:20 - Recovering body parts 59:22 - Finding a wedding ring that meant so much more 1:06:27 - Next mission post-crash site recovery 1:13:50 - A screech you've never heard before 1:17:06 - Next mission is BDA 1:24:04 - My first experience of war was “sh*@” 1:26:28 - Finding Marcus Luttrell 1:32:13 - How close was the movie scenery (Lone Survivor) to reality 1:39:14 - Hilarious story of one of those “guys” in the unit 1:46:15 - What did you carry with you into combat? 1:47:31 - Would you go back and do it all again? 1:48:30 - How does Tony think about recent events in Afghanistan? 1:50:45 - Listener comments

.On this episode of the Jason Cavness Experience I talk to Colton Becker - Founder | Optimist | Veteran | Improver We talk about the following Hunting Becoming an U.S. Army Ranger and his Army career Meliorem Inc. His core values Making the world a better place Bunker Labs and Veterans in Residence Colton's Bio Colton E. Becker was born in Vail, Colorado in October 1991. The youngest of three children, he spent most of his time as a kid playing hockey, hunting, fly-fishing, skiing, camping, golfing, rock-climbing, and enjoying the Colorado outdoors. Colton went to college at Colorado School of Mines, where he studied environmental engineering, joined the Army ROTC program, and played club hockey. Following his graduation, in December 2014, Colton was commissioned into the active-duty Army Infantry. At the same time, Colton began his entrepreneurial career by forming Global Water Farms, Inc. with his parents and their mutual business associate. The company's product was based on Colton's eighth grade science project, which is a novel and environmentally sustainable approach to water desalination that Colton and his father invented together. While in the Army, Colton spent his down time seeking investment for GWF in Seattle for over two years, during which time he helped raise $4 million in capital. After graduation from college, Colton went to the US Army's Infantry Basic Officer Leadership School at Ft. Benning, GA where he graduated first in his class. After IBOLC, he attended US Army Ranger School, but was ultimately dropped from the course after failing the final phase twice. At this point Colton confronted the same question as countless others, “should I just quit, or should I learn from my past experience and keep on going until I accomplish my goal?” Colton ultimately decided to go back to Ranger School and ended up completing to course after going straight through all phases. This accomplishment showed him the importance and value of determination, grit, and a no quit mindset when seeking to achieve large goals. When Colton separated from service in May of 2020, he moved down to California with his girlfriend, Jess, and began to work at Global Water Farms, Inc. as a full-time employee. During that time, Colton designed a 1.5 mega watt renewable power generation facility for the company's demonstration pilot. While Colton was living his lifelong dream of making his childhood science project reality, he noticed that the working relationship with his parents was becoming increasingly strained, and trending toward intolerable. Let's just say he thought Ranger School would be the hardest thing he would ever do until he spent a year working with his parents. Ultimately, Colton separated from GWF to pursue his own company and brought forth the lessons he learned from his time working at GWF. Through that experience, he learned firsthand the importance of having those “hard founder conversations” early or before the company's formation. This experience solidified in Colton the importance of valuing and supporting your team, cultivating a positive and creative working environment, recognizing team members' contributions, and holding one another accountable for meeting goals and deadlines. It also affirmed one of Colton's core values: that candor and purpose are paramount, and you should always give more than you seek to get. Ultimately, Colton left GWF in hopes of preserving the personal relationship with his family, moved back up to Washington with Jess, and formed Meliorem, Inc. with the goal of creating a company focused on bettering the world by providing climate conscious solutions to humanity's basic needs of food, water, and energy. Colton's Social Media Colton's LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/colton-becker/ Colton's Email: colton.e.becker@gmail Colton's Advice Focus on giving more than you get. When I was facing my hard times at Ranger School. That was the one thing that I kept seeing that would actually bear some form of fruit. If you focus your energy and your efforts on the person to your left and your right and you help them out when and where you can, however you can. Then this weird thing happens where you might be thinking that you are devoting your resources to somebody else. But really, what you're doing is you're creating a positive community. A community that wants to support you, because you're willing to support them. If you focus on that, then, you know, crazy things happen.

If you know of Black Rifle Coffee Company or watch Mayans MC on FX, you may already know this week's Borne the Battle guest – Army Veteran, entrepreneur, actor and overall entertainer Vincent Vargas.It was a windy road that led him to this point in his life. Too many wild parties got him kicked out of college and ended his childhood dream of playing professional baseball. At 20, as a young father who was no longer playing ball or attending school, Vargas felt like a disappointment to his family.In 2003, during the invasion of Baghdad at the outbreak of the Iraq War, Vargas watched a televised newscast in which a Marine helped to topple a statue of dictator Saddam Hussein. News reporters interviewed the Marine's family, who emotionally expressed their pride in his service.The next day, Vargas went to a military recruiting office to enlist. He later served in both Iraq and Afghanistan as an Army Ranger, became a drill sergeant, and after serving, even joined the U.S. Border Patrol.In this week's episode of Borne the Battle, Vincent Vargas discusses his many transitions between sports, military and civilian lives, getting into acting, his time on the Drinkin' Bros podcast, and the founding of Beteran, his Veteran-focused clothing line that emphasizes empowerment and positivity rather than the prevailing Veteran narratives of depression, alcoholism, and suicide.Borne the Battle Veteran of the Week: Army Veteran Ricardo Barraza Also Mentioned in this Episode: https://vincentroccovargas.com/ VETSmile pilot program to improve affordable dental care access for Veterans Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers to provide an additional year for eligibility and reassessment of certain participants

Matt “Griff” Griffin was a 2001 West Point graduate. Like many, his life quickly transformed after September 11th of that year. Little did he know it was that day that would give him the opportunity to later co-found Combat Flip Flops. Griff became an Army Ranger and spent four deployments in the Middle East. His time in Afghanistan really shaped his world-view. Eventually he wanted to take his lessons of teamwork and leadership to the entrepreneurial world. Combat Flip Flops A trip to a combat boot factory in Kabul is what compelled Griff to start Combat Flip Flops. He saw the impact that employment had on a community and wanted to continue to positively impact the country of Afghanistan. Eventually the footwear production had to be moved to Colombia, another war-torn country that could benefit from a manufacturing plant. It is this calling that keeps Combat Flip Flops going.

COL Stefan Banach (USA-Ret.) is a Distinguished Member of the 75th Ranger Regiment and served in that organization for nine years, culminating with command of the 3rd Ranger Battalion from 2001-2003. He led U.S. Army Rangers during a historic night combat parachute assault into Afghanistan on October 19, 2001, as the “spearhead” for the Global War on Terror. Steve subsequently led U.S. Army Rangers in a second combat parachute assault into Al Anbar Province in western Iraq in 2003. He served with distinction in the United States Army from 1983 to 2010. Since then, he has provided executive consulting services to a diverse range of clients at a number of prestigious institutions. Steve Banach also serves as the Director, Army Management Staff College, an element of Army University responsible for “igniting the leadership potential for every Army civilian.” In our interview with Steve Banach, we discussed global entanglement, multi-reality warfare, and the urgent need for a new paradigm and cognitive approach to warfare for the U.S. Army and larger Joint Force. The following bullet points highlight key insights from our interview: The U.S. military needs to develop a ‘fourth Army,’ whose form and function are capable of gaining logic from disorder. This Army will be better prepared to operate in the multi-reality, technologically integrated battlespace that is already upon us. The next war will be characterized by operations within the virtual battlespace. To prepare for this phase of warfare, the U.S. Army needs to develop new mental models to understand the vulnerabilities that arise from an increasingly interconnected world. Such an effort should feature the development of a ‘virtual battlespace maneuver’ Our adversaries are working to integrate technologies from autonomous weapons systems to social media to dominate this new battlespace. Future adversaries will not always be on a physical battleground, but the impacts of their operations will be felt both by the U.S. military and civilian population as they seek to create systemic shock and paralysis. The Army should redevelop its total force design and increase its operational arc to prepare the United States for this new form of conflict. Weapons of ‘mass deception’ will be increasingly prevalent in conflict, as social media is manipulated to prevent population education and engagement with critical issues. The United States should increase awareness of this threat via programs in both civilian and military education. Asymmetric ethics in the virtual b

Army Ranger Tony Brooks talks about why he joined, Ranger training and the reality of a recovery operation and secondary rescue efforts for Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell. On June 28, 2005, a four-man Navy SEAL reconnaissance team under Operation Red Wings was ambushed in northeastern Afghanistan.. A quick reaction force was dispatched. Turbine 33, carrying eight Navy SEALs and eight members of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, was struck by a rocket-propelled grenade―careening the dual rotor Chinook toward the rugged peak of Sawtalo Sar.  The result was the single deadliest incident in Special Operations history at the time. Commanders called on the largest element of US Special Forces, the 75th Ranger Regiment. The rescue mission: Operation Red Wings II. Author Dr.Tony Brooks gives a first-hand account of the daring recovery of Turbine 33 and the subsequent search for the remaining compromised Navy SEAL recon team―one of whom was Marcus Luttrell, the lone survivor. The Rangers were up against lack of intel, treacherous terrain, violent weather, and an enemy that was raised to fight. Tony Brooks lived by the axiom, “Leave No Man Behind.” He is the first to tell the story other books and films have omitted, one of overcoming overwhelming odds to accomplish a mission: to bring every American soldier home.  Tony talks with host Jim Fausone and paints a vivid picture of Army Ranger training and the strain of the mission.
