Creating a National Behavioral (Mental) Health Corps

Today's episode focuses on a very important topic, mental health. Tyler talks with Dr. Mark Russell, a Marine Corp and Navy veteran,  clinical psychologist, educator, and founder/director of the Institute of War Stress, Injury, Recovery, and Social Justice at Antioch University in Seattle, about the need for a Behavioral Health Corps within the military. "The military has an opportunity to become a leader in the field of mental health and really eliminate the stigma in the disparity between mental and physical health. And if the military chooses to do that, I think we could see some advances in mental health that we can't imagine. So I'm hopeful that as the military goes, so goes society. I hope that that ends up being the truth there." ~ Dr. Mark Russell The MissionThe mission of the Institute is two-fold: (1) investigate, identify, and eliminate root causes for repetitive crises in military mental healthcare, and (2) end the cycle of crises by transforming mental healthcare policy and practice. Although special emphasis is given to the estimated 24 million members of the warrior class including their family members, and healers-the activities of the Institute will equally benefit non-military populations through the advancement of knowledge and understanding of traumatic stress-related injuries.Stranger at Home Film STRANGER AT HOME reveals WHY a harmful, 100 year-old policy perpetuates catastrophic PTS and suicide rates amongst our country's military community. The film offers an in-depth look at eradicating stigma and creating a National Behavioral (Mental) Health Corps as achievable and critical steps to end an unnecessary mental health crisis.STRANGER AT HOME contrasts the intimate stories of three Veterans — Mark Russell, Charles Figley and Steven Elliott — with their unified message, which is: mental healthcare reform is the most essential human rights frontier ahead of us, and that it's time for the American Military to take the lead role in this profoundly important movement.Thank You For Your Service DocumentaryAn investigation into the failed mental health policies within the US military and the deadly consequences to America's troops. Thank You For Your Service takes aim at our understanding of war trauma through the interwoven stories of four struggling Iraq War veterans and candid interviews with top military and civilian leaders. The film posits that from the moment someone enters the armed services, their mental health is as important as their physical well-being and that by the creation of a Behavioral Health Corps (BHC), services and treatment can be effectively streamlined and create long term accountability.  Featuring interviews with General David Petraeus, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Admiral Mike Mullen, General Loree Sutton, Dexter Filkins, Senator Patty Murray, Gary Sinise, and Nicholas Kristof. Support the show

Intelligence, Terrorism and National Security - Lieutenant Colonel BILL COWAN is a retired Marine Corps officer and has been a public speaker and Fox News Channel contributor on matters of national security and terrorism for the past 12 years. During the height of the Iraq War he was designated by the New York Post as the best military analyst on television. A Naval Academy graduate, he served 3 1/2 years on combat assignments in Vietnam as a Marine Corps infantry officer. A platoon commander during the siege of Khe Sanh, he subsequently spent an additional 2 1/2 years as an infantry advisor in the Rung Sat Special Zone. Decorated many times for heroism, he was also awarded three purple hearts for wounds received. Following the taking of hostages in Iran in 1978 and the formation of special mission units (SMU's) to conduct operations of a sensitive, highly skilled nature, he turned down a plum White House assignment to instead become one of the early members of the Pentagon's super secret Intelligence Support Activity (ISA). While there he was a key member of the team that hunted down those responsible for the bombing of the U.S. Marine Compound in Beirut. Working directly with CIA Chief of Station William Buckley, Cowan and the team identified many of the targets and developed a plan for retaliation. Regrettably, the Pentagon refused to take action. Buckley, who was taken hostage by Hezbollah and brutally tortured, died in captivity. Bin-Laden himself termed the U.S. a 'paper tiger' for failing to respond to the bombing or to Buckley's murder. In addition to a 30 year career of special missions and activities in support of the Pentagon and the CIA, most of them into the tumultuous Middle East, Bill's experiences include service as a U.S. Senate staff assistant to Senator Warren Rudman, including working as the Senator's principal staffer during the Iran/Contra hearings and helping write the law which created the U.S. Special Operations Command in Tampa; a clandestine rescue operation conducted with former CIA Director William Colby which resulted in the repatriation of a number of Americans stranded in Iraqi-occupied Kuwait; and, successful negotiations with the Iranians at the behest of the White House to secure the release of Western hostages being held in Beirut. Well known to Hezbollah, the Syrians, and the Iranians for his work against them, he is one who can speak with authority on matters of interest to many Americans. In 1995, while being interviewed by 60 Minutes' Mike Wallace in front of the destroyed U.S. Embassy in Beirut Bill opined that it was just a matter of time before we saw a similar incident in the U.S. Ironically he was less than a half mile from the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, as he watched American Airlines Flight 77 cross in front of him and hit the Pentagon. He was subsequently one of Wallace's first guests on 60 Minutes following the tragic events of 9/11. Known for telling it like it is, he's angered Republican and Democratic administrations alike with his no-nonsense approach, always basing his analysis and opinions of years of 'hands on' experience, not on academic or policy minded jargon. - www.colonelcowan.com For Your Listening Pleasure for these Lockdown / Stay-At-Home COVID and Variants Times - For all the radio shows available on The 'X' Zone Broadcast Network visit - https://www.spreaker.com/user/xzoneradiotv.

Tony Drees is  a Purple Heart  Desert Storm Veteran; as well as an adaptive athlete who uses skiing as a vehicle to serve  the community. He survived the deadliest scud missile  attack of the Iraq war thirty year ago.  Twenty-eight  members of his unit lost their lives.  Tony survived but his right leg was severely  injured.  He endured over seventy surgeries to save his right leg. He actually was able to function and live for a while with his injured leg, a feat that he doctors called a miracle He was successful in a sales job. He got married and became a father. He unfortunately struggled with alcohol and opioid addiction, and then got sober. All the while, he was living with an open wound in his leg that just wouldn't heal. In 2017 severe blood and bone infections left him with a choice: amputate his leg or die. Just a couple days before the surgery, right around Tony's  50th birthday, he was talking with his son Quincy about skiing,  something he did in the past. After surgery  his rehab was to be a year long. It only took four months. It was because skiing was on his  mind.  The feelings of guilt for living always drove him to achieve high goals  So in 2018, he took up skiing on one leg and has achieved remarkable feats on the mountain. He uses his skiing to inspire, to serve, and to promote diversity.  Episode Highlights:   Serving  his country and almost losing his leg.  Struggling with survivor's guilt, depression and destructive behavior Breaking from his career, moving to focus on being  an athlete How Tony Drees  starting skiing again after his amputation  What's next for Tony Drees in the coming season Tony Drees sharing  some powerful life lessons Guest Bio: Thirty  years ago Tony's story became public when he survived the deadliest scud of the Iraq War.  Twenty-eight  soldiers perished, fifty-four of sixty-eight  of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania's 14TH Quartermaster Army Reserve Unit were lost or wounded. He felt guilty for living.  This always drove him to achieve incredibly high goals in anything that mattered to him. A lifetime of that and it seems he's amassed a tremendous amount of opportunities to succeed. He  lost his war-wounded leg after 74 Surgeries and a couple of bouts with cancer. In 2018, he took up skiing on one leg. He  turned out to be pretty good. He also transformed literally overnight from a 200lb pro baller looking-body to a 140 one-legged man.  Even with his  leg gone, he still had a duty to serve. He is progressing rapidly in skiing. He is an adaptive champion and motivational speaker. He is continually seeking to inspire across a diverse audience. After people see him people always internally (and often externally) compare themselves to the one-legged person- everyone. That's equity. Many of these folks are then moved to do something. That's his influence and he uses it inclusively for positive representation of many groups that may otherwise go underserved. That's his service. His next challenge is to do a backflip on one ski! He calls it BackFlips4Access!   Connect with Tony Catch Tony Drees on his  site Connect with Tony on  Instagram Connect with Tony on  Facebook Connect with Tony on Twitter Watch Tony on YouTube Did you enjoy today's episode?

On this edition of Parallax Views, Hannah R. Gurman, historian and Clinical Associate Professor at New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, joins us to discuss her Responsible Statecraft piece "‘Rambo' rides again? Switching roles and purifying souls in Ukraine". Said piece deals with the return of counterinsurgency in the post-War on Terror/post-Iraq War context of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the U.S. response to it. Hannah analyzes this using the popular action film Rambo III, which infamously saw Sylvester Stallone's iconic John Rambo joining Afghanistan freedom fighter (or... the mujahadeen?) fight the Soviet Union and save his friend Col.

Hannah argues that Rambo III is is a piece of pop culture that relevant in understanding how Americans processed the Vietnam War in the decades following its failure. She then uses this to examine how counterinsurgency has returned with none other than the neoconservative hawk Eliot Cohen, a co-founder of the Project for American Century, as a proponent thanks to the Ukraine crisis. All that and much more in this fascinating conversation! In the second segment of the show, Jacobin staff writer and Yesterday's Man: The Case Against Joe Biden author Branko Marcetic joins me to discuss his article "We Have New Evidence of Saudi Involvement in 9/11, and Barely Anyone Cares". Branko covers how newly released FBI documents point towards some level of Saudi complicity in the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks. The prime figure that come up in the latest documents? Omar al-Bayoumi, a man who provided assistance to 9/11 hijackers in California and that is believed to have been associated with Saudi intelligence, and Prince Bandar bin Sultan, whose close relationship with President George W. Bush led to him being nicknamed "Prince Bandar Bush". In this conversation we discuss the seemingly explosive revelations in these documents as well as the media blackout on coverage of the topic, crisis in Yemen, why despots can get away with violations of international law and the mocking of its allies in a world driven by oil and gas, and much, much more.

“The one sector of government that doesn't experience austerity is the military budget.” In this episode of Anti-Capitalist Chronicles, Prof. Harvey looks at the role of military expenditures in contemporary capitalism in the US and how it affects the rest of the world. From WWII to the Cold War, to the Iraq War, to the current Russian War on Ukraine, the US has consistently found ways to justify expanding the military budget, while shrinking almost every other government sector. But who benefits from this constant expansion? As Harvey reveals, it's the politicians who represent locales with military bases and the corporations like Lockheed Martin and Boeing, that provide the military supplies and equipment.

Saturday marked the nineteenth anniversary of the beginning of the second Iraq War—a war Congress never formally declared. Instead, just like with America's invasion of Afghanistan, Congress passed an Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF). Together, these AUMFs provide the legal basis for the ongoing war on terror and have been loosely interpreted by every president since 2001 to authorize military action anywhere with little to no Congressional oversight. Though these AUMFs remain on the books today, the past year has seen a push by lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to reclaim Congress's role in matters of war and peace—an issue that extends beyond America's post 9/11 wars. Questions of Congressional oversight remain pertinent as the United States debates how to respond to Russia's war in Ukraine.    This week, we're revisiting our season two conversation with ​​Heather Brandon Smith and Rita Siemion, both experts on AUMFs and advocates for their repeal. They discuss the history of these AUMFs, prospects for reform under the Biden administration, and why repealing them is necessary to end America's post-9/11 wars.

Why Listen: Today's conversation is the highlight of my time with Beyond the Uniform. More than anyone else I have witnessed, Jocko Willink and Leif Babin are doing the most to elevate the civilian world's understanding of military Veterans and what they bring to the table. In this conversation, we talk about what it is like for Jocko and Leif to work together now, out of uniform. We also talk about what it was like starting their company, Echelon Front… and it's not as easy as I had thought it would be. We talk about their newest initiatives - EF Overwatch and EF Legion, incredible recruiting resources for the military community. We talk about career transition advice and mindsets to keep and tweak and more.   About Jocko: Jocko Willink is a retired U.S. Navy SEAL officer, co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win, Dichotomy of Leadership, host of the top-rated Jocko Podcast, and co-founder of Echelon Front, where he serves as Chief Executive Officer, leadership instructor, speaker and strategic advisor. Jocko spent 20 years in the SEAL Teams, starting as an enlisted SEAL and rising through the ranks to become a SEAL officer. As commander of SEAL Team Three's Task Unit Bruiser during the battle of Ramadi, he orchestrated SEAL operations that helped the “Ready First” Brigade of the U.S. Army's First Armored Division bring stability to the violent, war-torn city. Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated Special Operations Unit of the Iraq War. Jocko returned from Iraq to serve as Officer-in-Charge of training for all West Coast SEAL Teams. There, he spearheaded the development of leadership training and personally instructed and mentored the next generation of SEAL leaders who have continued to perform with great success on the battlefield. Jocko is the recipient of the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, and numerous other personal and unit awards.   Upon retiring from the Navy, Jocko co-founded Echelon Front, a premier leadership consulting company, where he teaches the leadership principles he learned on the battlefield to help others lead and win. Jocko also authored the Discipline Equals Freedom Field Manual, a New York Times Bestseller, and the best selling Way of the Warrior Kid children's book series.   About Leif: Leif Babin is a former U.S. Navy SEAL officer, co-author of #1 New York Times bestseller Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win, and co-founder of Echelon Front, where he serves as President/Chief Operating Officer, leadership instructor, speaker, and strategic advisor. A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Leif served thirteen years in the Navy, including nine in the SEAL Teams. As a SEAL platoon commander in SEAL Team Three's Task Unit Bruiser, he planned and led major combat operations in the Battle of Ramadi that helped the “Ready First” Brigade of the US Army's 1st Armored Division achieve victory. Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War. Leif returned from combat and became the primary leadership instructor for all officers graduating from the SEAL training pipeline. There, he reshaped SEAL leadership training to better prepare the next generation of SEAL officers for the immense challenges of combat. During his last tour, Leif served as Operations Officer and Executive Officer at a SEAL Team where he again deployed to Iraq with a Special Operations Task Force. He is the recipient of the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, and a Purple Heart. Upon his departure from active duty, Leif co-founded Echelon Front, a premier leadership consulting company that helps others build their own high-performance winning teams.

Consequences by David Grantham provides a unique and fascinating window into the nuts and bolts of OSI counterintelligence operations. You won't be disappointed.”– Fred Burton, author of Beirut Rules: The Murder of a CIA Station Chief and Hezbollah's War Against America    In 2020, ISIS followers are being encouraged to use COVID-19 to sicken Westerners. An ISIS supporter attacked a Naval base in Corpus Christi, Texas. Iran and the United States exchanged blows in Iraq. We are still living in the long shadow of the Iraq War. In 2006, David Grantham was fresh out of college and serving as a counterintelligence officer with the elite and secretive Air Force Office of Special Investigations. Iraq was veering toward civil war. The U.S. military desperately needed better on-the-ground intelligence to turn the tide. Grantham found himself in Kuwait and Afghanistan, then at Iraq's infamous American prison, Camp Bucca. Not only was Bucca the breeding ground for the Islamic State, it was in southern Iraq, where America's deadly fight with Iran was an open secret. Consequences is both a riveting, behind-the-scenes look at intelligence operations at the height of the Iraq war, and a charming and sobering story of one man's journey through the pleasures and consequences that come with wartime intelligence. ..

We tackled the comparisons between Russia's invasion, the Iraq War, and other disastrous American foreign policy failures. Does America's good intent set it apart from countries like Russia, or are we more similar than we care to admit?   In Part 2 of our conversation, available here for subscribers, we ask Glenn whether the U.S. should continue arming the Ukrainian resistance, and what an endgame would even look like. Shadi argues that, for all its faults, American hegemony is better than any of the available alternatives while Damir wonders whether "better" is even a relevant category. Perhaps a multipolar world is inevitable.

“I think the digital world is going to continue to eat the analogue world and how dystopian or not that ends up being will be entirely a function of the individuals that are working towards one eventual outcome or the other, which is what makes doing this type of work to me so worth doing.”— Travis Kling- - - -Travis Kling is the Chief Investment Officer and Ikigai. In this interview, we discuss the need for decentralization, Bitcoin as pristine collateral and whether we're living in a simulation. - - - - Google, Facebook and Amazon are still relatively young companies, formed in the slipstream of the internet. They rose from a mass of competition to dominate not just the internet, but to become some of the most powerful organisations in the world. Such is their power that they are changing society in profound and concerning ways. At the same time, there has been significant erosion in trust. The Iraq War and the sub-prime mortgage crisis combined to generate widespread disillusionment with the status quo. This was funnelled into social media's new echo chambers with algorithms that stoked fear and anger. We are still struggling to deal with the results. A major issue of concern is that the next wave of technological innovation is expected to be overwhelmingly disruptive: AI and robotics in particular have potentially unlimited capacity to revolutionise society. If we don't resolve the issues caused by centralization now, the future for democratic governance looks bleak.This episode's sponsors:Gemini - Buy Bitcoin instantlyBlockFi - The future of Bitcoin financial servicesSportsbet.io - Online sportsbook & casino that accepts BitcoinCasa - The leading provider of Bitcoin multisig key security.Ledger - State of the art Bitcoin hardware walletCompass Mining - Bitcoin mining & hostingLVL - Bank on BitcoinBCB Group - Global digital financial Services-----WBD473 - Show Notes-----If you enjoy The What Bitcoin Did Podcast you can help support the show by doing the following:Become a Patron and get access to shows early or help contributeMake a tip:Bitcoin: 3FiC6w7eb3dkcaNHMAnj39ANTAkv8Ufi2SQR Codes: BitcoinIf you do send a tip then please email me so that I can say thank youSubscribe on iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | SoundCloud | YouTube | Deezer | TuneIn | RSS FeedLeave a review on iTunesShare the show and episodes with your friends and familySubscribe to the newsletter on my websiteFollow me on Twitter Personal | Twitter Podcast | Instagram | Medium | YouTubeIf you are interested in sponsoring the show, you can read more about that here or please feel free to drop me an email to discuss options.

Dustin Washington and Martin Friedman come together to talk about the war in Ukraine in our new podcast. Together they share their thoughts on the current leaders' egos, and how ego can effect their decision making. The current conflict in Ukraine presents the perfect opportunity for western countries to have an us against them mindset. Dustin stresses the importance of moving out of this mindset and moving towards seeing people for who they truly are. The war has caused many of us to have a disconnect from what is going on in Ukraine because we can't see ourselves in those people. Dustin shares some beautiful advice on how to see this war as an opportunity to grow. He believes that by witnessing this current war you can observe the lack of humanity by world leaders, and find the areas in your life that could use more love.Dustin and Martin move on to talk about the value of human life in wars. Dustin and Martin agree that the value of human life goes down when entering a war. Leaders send armed forces to other countries for economic benefit sometimes, and don't care how many lives are lost in the process. Over time both men have seen multiple wars covered on the news and they have observed the way human lives are discussed as expendable. Dustin remembers vividly that the coverage of the Iraq War on most news channels portrayed the war as violent and thrilling. He felt that the U.S. was almost celebrating that they were in another country killing other human beings. There will always be another war as long as we are all stuck in ego. We hope by listening to this podcast you can get a better understanding of why human solidarity is so important to The Soul Focused Group. Humanity needs change and we believe in each and every one of you. #StaySoulFocused

Warning: Explicit Conversations About Politics, Culture, & Sexuality Like anyone with a brain, we're going insane from Putin's Rape of Ukraine. Of course, our poetic angst is nothing compared to the Ukrainian people being attacked by this power-mad bully. Trumpty Dumpty calling Putin a “genius” is just one bully impressed by a bigger bully. As always, we're for peace, love and The Bonobo Way, though we admire the Ukrainians' passionate resistance to tyranny. Putin claims that Ukraine is run by “drug addicts and Nazis,” but their President is a Jewish Comedian. Putin's unprovoked attack has turned Volodymyr Zelensky, the “Little Yiddishe Comic Who Could,” into a remarkable real-world leader, and the joke is on Putin. Sort of. Who knows how the whole horrific situation will evolve or (more likely) devolve? By the time you listen to this podcast, all the news could change—hopefully to peace and diplomacy… with good sex for all—especially Putin, who seems to need some nookie… gagged and straitjacketed. Though it could all go the other (nuclear) way…yikes! To help us make “sense” of the crisis, joining Capt'n Max and me on the “Ukraine Love Train” is multiple SUZY award winner Luzer Twersky, recently in Ukraine making “Dovbush,” a film in which he plays the Baal Shem Tov, founder of the Hasidic movement, giving us a very intense, personal glimpse into what is happening in Ukraine right now, updating us with friends' messages & Telegram newsflashes. Sorry this show is more about war than love, though we do talk wartime sex, makeup sex and sex workers in Ukraine -  plus NATO's unsexy “Poking the Bear” provocations. Also, it opens quite lasciviously, with Max spilling his beer in a gush of foam.  And our anthem is still: “Make KINK Not War!”  Speaking of which, thank you Xbiz for a nice review of  KINK: Another Guide for the Perplexed (with apologies to Maimonides). And don't miss my State of the Sexual Union address 2022. Of course, that other State of the Union is important, but so is sex, love and the antiwar Bonobo Way of peace through pleasure.   Being antiwar is not an easy position right now, with almost everyone salivating to fight “the Russians.” It was not easy during Vietnam (ask Jane Fonda), nor the first Iraq War, nor right after 9/11, but we were antiwar then and we are antiwar now. We were proven right then, and we are right again: War is NOT the answer. Maybe kink will save the day. Putin once claimed (absurdly) that there are no gays in Russia, so perhaps the shock of seeing that the Ukranian military is tracking Russian troop movements by monitoring Grindr will awaken this foolish imperialist bully from his toxic war trance.

Recorded just before Russia's wanton and extremely illegal invasion of Ukraine, Fiona Edwards of Stop the War Coalition joins us to discuss the hubris and reckless expansionism of NATO after Fukayama's end of history which poked a rabid Russian bear, and the endless demonisation of the British anti-war movement which mobilised a million people in the streets against the Iraq War that is needed now more than ever. We recap the crimes and dirty history of NATO, an organisation that is in no way committed to peace or democracy, and depressingly look to a looming Cold War arising with China. Bad times. /// SHOW NOTES /// /// CREDITS /// Hosts: Aarjan /// Ruairi Guest: Fiona Edwards Production: Connor Music: Cardio /// Buffalo Springfield - For What It's Worth

‘The idea of state interests is a manufactured discourse where officials and diplomats make up what they think their countries' interests are usually without reference to the people concerned.' In this episode, Manas Chawla interviews Founder of Independent Diplomat, Carne Ross, about the losers of the state-based international system and the need for multiple diplomatic mechanisms, at both the international and domestic level, in times of a crisis, such as during the one currently playing out in Ukraine. Carne founded Independent Diplomat, a non-profit venture, which advises governments, political groups, international institutions, and NGOs about diplomatic conduct and strategy. Prior to this, he worked as a diplomat for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for fifteen years, before he resigned over the Iraq War. He is also the subject of the documentary Accidental Anarchist and author of the book The Leaderless Revolution: How Ordinary People Will Take Power and Change Politics in the 21st Century. Drawing upon his time on the front lines of diplomacy and his experience of giving diplomatic voices to state and non-state actors, Carne offers a unique insight into the workings of the international system and the decisions of those who define it.
