By Davy Crockett In 1963, President John F. Kennedy unintentionally played a role that provided the spark to ignite interest for ultrarunning in America and elsewhere. The door was flung open for all who wanted to challenge themselves.  An unexpected 50-mile frenzy swept across America like a raging fire that dominated the newspapers for weeks. Tens of thousands of people attempted to hike 50 miles, both the old and the very young. Virtually unnoticed was a small club 50-mile event hiked by high school boys in Maryland, that eventually became America's oldest ultra: The JFK 50, founded by Buzz Sawyer.

Visit https://ultrarunninghistory.com/member Kennedy's Push for Physical Fitness While running for president, Kennedy had campaigned with a goal to improve the nation's physical health, and once in office he made that a priority. He feared that the future generations would be spectators of sport rather than participants on the field of play because of their lack of physical fitness. In 1961 a “Fit as a Fiddle” newsreel was produced by Kennedy's Physical Fitness Program targeting youth to understand the importance of physical fitness. Also, that year, 200,000 copies of a song called “Chicken Fat” was distributed to all schools with the lyrics, “Nuts to the flabby guys! Go, you chicken fat, go away!” Fitness Test for Marines General David M. Shoup Back in 1908, President Theodore Roosevelt issued an executive order that every Marine captain and lieutenant should be able to hike 50 miles in 20 hours. In 1962 Kennedy discovered this order and asked his Marine Commandant, David M. Shoup (1904-1983), to find out how well his present-day officers could do with the 50-mile test. Shoup made it an order to his Marines. Twenty Marine officers were selected to take the test in mid-February 1963, at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. News Article Starts the Frenzy An Associated Press article published nationwide on February 5, 1963, shared the story of the 50-mile test. It received intense national attention. President Kennedy never directly challenged the American public to take the 50-mile challenge, but the article inspired many across the country, who were eager to test themselves too. The Public Starts Hiking 50 Miles Naïve, untrained, civilians, immediately decided to hit the road without much planning to undertake the challenge in the middle of the cold winter. On the very evening after the article was published, Lt. Colonel James W. Tuma, age 48 (1914-1990) from Michigan, stationed at Fort Huachuca, near Tucson, Arizona, immediately decided to start a 50-mile hike through the Sonoran desert. You would think, Tuma, who held a Ph.D. in physical education, would have more sense, but away he went. He hiked through the night, not sleeping. He said, "Everybody was nice along the way, wanting to give me a ride." The next morning, he finished his 50 miles with a sprint for a time of 13.5 hours and was credited as the very first one to finish 50-miles that the start of the nation-wide craze. Robert F. Kennedy's 50-mile Hike After his 50-mile hike, Ethel Kennedy helps RFK recover. On February 9th, four days after the story went public, Attorney General Robert F Kennedy decided to take the challenge himself and hike 50 miles. Without any specific training, Kennedy hiked away on the Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal towpath (the future home of the JFK 50) with his dog Brumis and some aids. After 25 miles, the group was ready to give up. But the press had caught wind of what Kennedy was doing, and a helicopter arrived soon after with photographers and journalists. So, Kennedy set off again. His last aide dropped out by 35 miles,

For more than half of its existence, members of the Marine Corps largely self-identified as soldiers. It did not yet mean something distinct to be a Marine, either to themselves or to the public at large. As neither a land-based organization like the Army nor an entirely sea-based one like the Navy, the Corps' missions overlapped with both institutions. Heather P.

The process by which a maligned group of nineteenth-century naval policemen began to consider themselves to be elite warriors benefited from the active engagement of Marine officers with the Corps' historical record as justification for its very being. Rather than look forward and actively seek out a mission that could secure their existence, late nineteenth-century Marines looked backward and embraced the past. They began to justify their existence by invoking their institutional traditions, their many martial engagements, and their claim to be the nation's oldest and proudest military institution. This led them to celebrate themselves as superior to soldiers and sailors. Although there are countless works on this hallowed fighting force, How the Few Became the Proud is the first to explore how the Marine Corps crafted such powerful myths. Alex J.

Healing Through ServiceAaron Quinonez pt 3I grew up in the Vietnam Era. I joined the military straight out of high school just a few years after Vietnam ended. I have seen the effects of what we now call PTSD on friends and fellow soldiers that served prior to my enlistment. I know many of our war veterans back then did not know, nor did anyone else for that matter, what PTSD was or how it affected our veterans. Fast forward 25 years and we understand a lot more about PTSD and its effects. But yet, many of our war veterans still struggle with these battle scars. Some have such a hard time readjusting to civilian life, they decide to take their own life. My guest today has experienced just this sort of turmoil. Aaron Quinonez is a Marine combat veteran who joined the service straight out of high school. Serving 8 years in the Marines and a combat tour in Iraq as part of the Marine 1stANGLICO unit. In case you were wondering about the military acronym for ANGLICO it stands for “Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company” which is the only US Dept. of Defense unit capable of bringing in direct fire support for ground forces from air, sea or land and they are regularly part of special operations forces in combat. Sgt. Quinonez returned to civilian life, only to find that the real battle had just begun. Suffering from depression, anger and panic attacks, he was diagnosed with PTSD. But just being diagnosed with a problem and receiving the needed help are two entirely different things. This affected Sgt. Quinonez (or “Sgt. Q” as he is called now) decided it would be better to just take his own life that continuing in the agony he was facing on a daily basis. Today is the conclusion of a great three part interview with "Sgt Q." He has been sharing how Jesus delivered him, gave him a new life, a new calling and he is now in charge of what is called, https://www.qmissions.org/ (“Q Missions.”) This is a pathway for veterans and fellow warfighters to help them replace the battle scars of their minds with the joy of serving others through building churches, homes, feeding children and suppling precious hope to struggling communities worldwide. Sgt. Q has also authored a new book titled, https://amzn.to/3EShdnN (“Healing Thru Service: The Warriors Guide to Overcoming Trauma.”) Tell us about https://operationpopsmoke.com/ (“Operation Pop Smoke.” ) I know the phraseology for “pop smoke” but how have you used this term to communicate with veterans that need assistance? And your book, https://amzn.to/3EShdnN (“Healing Thru Service: The Warriors Guide to Overcoming Trauma.” ) Why did you decide to publish this book at this time? Who was this book written for? Sgt. Q, this is all so fascinating. And the services you are providing to help struggling veterans has also been recognized by the Veterans Administration, correct? Your book, https://amzn.to/3EShdnN (“Healing Thru Service: The Warriors Guide to Overcoming Trauma”) is a must have for every veteran and families of veterans. Where can someone order your book? Is it on Amazon? If someone has a question about your book or your organization, https://www.qmissions.org/ (“Q Missions”) or https://operationpopsmoke.com/ (“Operation Pop Smoke”) – how can they get in touch with you? Folks, veteran PTSD and veteran suicides are a very real and very serious reality in this country. Just as this condition is very individual in nature, where every person suffers in their own way, the help needs to be individualized as well. Organizations such as those founded by Sgt. Q are not only needful, but directly impacting those who need help and need help now. Your donations are needed – right now. Someone, somewhere is suffering – right now.

Sgt. Quinonez returned to civilian life, only to find that the real battle had just begun. Suffering from depression, anger and panic attacks, he was diagnosed with PTSD. But just being diagnosed with a problem and receiving the needed help are two entirely different things. This affected Sgt. Quinonez (or “Sgt. Q” as he is called now) decided it would be better to just take his own life that continuing in the agony he was facing on a daily basis. Today is part two of a three part interview with "Sgt Q." He has been sharing how Jesus delivered him, gave him a new life, a new calling and he is now in charge of what is called, https://www.qmissions.org/ (“Q Missions.”) This is a pathway for veterans and fellow warfighters to help them replace the battle scars of their minds with the joy of serving others through building churches, homes, feeding children and suppling precious hope to struggling communities worldwide. Sgt. Q has also authored a new book titled, https://amzn.to/3EShdnN (“Healing Thru Service: The Warriors Guide to Overcoming Trauma.”) Take us through some of the turmoil PTSD has on a war veteran. I know not everyone suffers the same things or to the same degree. But in general, what are some of the things going on the mind of someone suffering from PTSD? Then came the day you decided to take your life. Can you give us what was going through your mind on that day and what happened to make you change your decision? 25 min zoom edit How did you decide to start https://www.qmissions.org/ (“Q Missions?”) Tell us about https://operationpopsmoke.com/ (“Operation Pop Smoke.” ) I know the phraseology for “pop smoke” but how have you used this term to communicate with veterans that need assistance? Folks, veteran PTSD and veteran suicides are a very real and very serious reality in this country. Just as this condition is very individual in nature, where every person suffers in their own way, the help needs to be individualized as well. Organizations such as those founded by Sgt. Q are not only needful, but directly impacting those who need help and need help now. Your donations are needed – right now. Someone, somewhere is suffering – right now.

RAND researchers Cynthia Cook and William Shelton joined me on the Acquisition Talk podcast to discuss their new paper which takes a fresh look at the space acquisition enterprise. Not only is the US Space Force much smaller than its sister services (just 16,000 compared more than 10x that number in the Marines), it is also much more reliant on technology. They argue that the nation's newest military service has a huge opportunity to shape a more agile process and flatter organization. This includes: - Creating a culture of "warrior engineers" - Embracing funding flexibility and portfolio management - Empowering a single space acquisition decisionmaker - Coordinating enterprise architectures and capability roadmaps - Increasing cross-pollination between government and industry In the episode, Cynthia and Bill emphasize the need for the Space Force to think differently about program management. Often, managers are incentivized to deliver on their baseline program instead of taking responsibility for broader integration issues. For example, the GPS capability set was broken out into separate programs for space vehicle, ground, user equipment, and launch, causing synchronization issues. Bill explained how "As a program manager, I had the iron triangle. Don't mess with my cost-schedule-performance. Anybody comes with a new idea, if it's going to make me slip or cost money, thanks for your interest in national defense but I'm going to do what I got to do to meet my APB." Changing this system of incentives requires a different personnel structure, system of promotion, dedicated contracting officers, and methods of accountability. This is particularly true as space systems rely more on commercial, proliferation, and "good enough" solutions rather than exquisite systems that take more than a decade to field.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 11th, 2021. You might want to send Italy a congratulations. That country announced it's reached its goal of 80% of the population over 12 being fully vaccinated. That amounts to 43 million people out of 60 million. However, a lot of people hit the streets not to celebrate, but to protest vaccine passports. Many of these gatherings turned into violent riots. A comprehensive CBS News poll shows that most Americans are still worried about the pandemic with winter on the way, and a bit pessimistic in saying things are going to get worse in the coming months, not better. As for parents of young children, it's split down the middle in terms of will they get their children vaccinated. Masking for kids in school does seem to have majority support. About half feel the information they hear from America's health leaders has been confusing. The deadline is right around the corner and at the moment, hundreds of thousands of U.S. service members are still unvaccinated. Most of those deadlines are in November and December. Different branches are delivering different levels of compliance. For instance 90% of the active-duty Navy is fully immunized while only 72% of active-duty Marines are. The news is usually bad enough without getting it completely wrong. The New York Times issued a correction after their health and science reporter said 900,000 children have been hospitalized in the US with Covid-19. Not even a little bit close. The actual figure is a 63,000. The piece also got actions taken by regulators in Sweden and Denmark wrong. Wait, we're not done. She also got the timing of an FDA meeting on authorizing the Pfizer vaccine for kids wrong. Typically cautious and often a full-on buzzkill about holidays, Dr. Anthony Fauci says don't worry about trick or treating outdoors this Halloween. While he says we shouldn't declare premature victory and he still wants more people vaccinated who are eligible, Fauci did note that cases are dropping. Right now, there are about 95,000 new cases a day. Fauci said when it drops to less than 10,000 a day, we can start dropping restrictions like masking indoors...which will make it much easier to bob for apples. In the United States cases were down 20%, deaths are down 14%, and hospitalizations are down 21% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,820,727 active cases in the United States. With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Michigan 20%, North Dakota 18%, Pennsylvania 15%. Minnesota 13%. And Montana 8%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Bethel Census Area, AK. Stark, ND. Lewis, KY. Kodiak Island Borough, AK. Whitley, KY. Knox, IN. Clay, TX. Custer, MT. McCreary, MT. And Big Horn, WY. There have been at least 712,993 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont unchanged at 69.8%, Connecticut unchanged at 69.2%, and Rhode Island unchanged at 69%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are West Virginia unchanged at 40.6%, and Wyoming and Idaho at 42.2%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is 56.2%. The five countries with biggest 24-hour increases in the number of fully vaccinated people: St. Lucia and Kosovo up 2%. And Australia, Sri Lanka, and Finland 1%.

Healing Through Service Aaron Quinonez pt 1I grew up in the Vietnam Era. I joined the military straight out of high school just a few years after Vietnam ended. I have seen the effects of what we now call PTSD on friends and fellow soldiers that served prior to my enlistment. I know many of our war veterans back then did not know, nor did anyone else for that matter, what PTSD was or how it affected our veterans. Fast forward 25 years and we understand a lot more about PTSD and its effects. But yet, many of our war veterans still struggle with these battle scars. Some have such a hard time readjusting to civilian life, they decide to take their own life. My guest today has experienced just this sort of turmoil. Aaron Quinonez is a Marine combat veteran who joined the service straight out of high school. Serving 8 years in the Marines and a combat tour in Iraq as part of the Marine 1stANGLICO unit. In case you were wondering about the military acronym for ANGLICO it stands for “Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company” which is the only US Dept. of Defense unit capable of bringing in direct fire support for ground forces from air, sea or land and they are regularly part of special operations forces in combat. Sgt. Quinonez returned to civilian life, only to find that the real battle had just begun. Suffering from depression, anger and panic attacks, he was diagnosed with PTSD. But just being diagnosed with a problem and receiving the needed help are two entirely different things. This affected Sgt. Quinonez (or “Sgt.

But, since he is a guest today, I guess you could say, that was not the end of the story! Jesus delivered him, giving him a new life, a new calling and he is now in charge of what is called, https://www.qmissions.org/ (“Q Missions.”) This is a pathway for veterans and fellow warfighters to help them replace the battle scars of their minds with the joy of serving others through building churches, homes, feeding children and suppling precious hope to struggling communities worldwide.  Sgt. Q has also authored a new book titled, https://amzn.to/3EShdnN (“Healing Thru Service: The Warriors Guide to Overcoming Trauma.”) First, I want to personally thank you and every other service man and woman out there for the sacrifices that you have made on behalf of this nation. I served 12 years in the Army before leaving service in 1989 and entering law enforcement from which I retired in 2011. But I understand, what we call, the “mindset of the warrior” all too well and consider it an honor to have you on the program today. First question, other than that brief information I just shared, tell us in your words, “Who is Sgt. Q – Aaron Quinonez?” Tell us about your preparation for and the transition from combat military life to civilian life and what was provided to you and what was lacking to help you with the transition… And you returned home and entered janitorial services. Did that help or hinder your transition process? Were you married when you were in service? Take us through some of the turmoil PTSD has on a war veteran. I know not everyone suffers the same things or to the same degree. But in general, what are some of the things going on the mind of someone suffering from PTSD? Then came the day you decided to take your life. Can you give us what was going through your mind on that day and what happened to make you change your decision?  Folks, veteran PTSD and veteran suicides are a very real and very serious reality in this country.

It's important that we're changing the paradigm of what leadership looked like back in the day to where we need to go with leadership today, based on the problems we're trying to solve and the talent we're trying to attract as well as our bottom and top-line growth. Today, David Robinson shares some great insights into leadership as well as some actionable steps we can do to improve as leaders. David selected the military route as his career choice, which led him to the U.S. Naval Academy but ended up spending 25 years as a fighter pilot in the U.S. Marines. For him, it was the best thing that ever happened because it helped shape and develop him as a leader, something he's really passionate about. Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation: Why David chose the military route and the life lessons he got 3 common denominator traits in leaders today The marathon mentality vs. the sprint mentality Responding in adversity 3 questions when debriefing with your team Retention strategies and ideas The 3 P's of developing a high-performing mission The power of emotional connection to influence others Episode Highlights: Things David Learned in the Military Self-leadership comes first. You have to be able to discipline and lead yourself before you can effectively lead others. With that comes emotional awareness, pressure, and how you respond emotionally to that pressure. 3 Common Denominator Traits in Leaders Today 1. Persistence The burden of leadership is real. Perseverance and persistence are important components of being able to lead an organization because things don't always go well every day. There are fires to put out and challenges to overcome. People can be complicated at times, and getting people to work together toward a common goal is quite a challenge. And that takes a level of marathon mentality. Many leaders take a sprint mentality, which can be harmful not only to themselves but also to the people that report to them. 2. Commitment to Self-Improvement Exceptional leaders have an element of humility where they are committed to self-improvement. They know they have blind spots, and they are looking for other people to help them fill in those blind spots. Acknowledge that we all have growth areas. And the first step is to get into a mentality that there is room for growth. Ask feedback from others and 3. Ability to listen As a leader, you have to listen first and then speak last. Say, "What do you think we should do?" as opposed to saying, "This is what I want you to do." Because when you listen to your people, they have great ideas most of the time, much better than your ideas. And if you stifle that conversation, expressing your opinion early on can inhibit innovation and finding the best solutions. Allow your team or two or three sub-teams to go come back to you with some answers on how they would go about accomplishing the task. This opens the aperture and allows them to think innovatively and creatively. It allows them to bring their own experience and expertise as well as ownership to their solutions. 3 questions when debriefing with your team What happened relative to our goals? Why did we either achieve or not achieve our goals? What can we do as a team to improve so the next time we do this right?

Akshay Nanavati has overcome drug addiction, PTSD from fighting the war in Iraq with the Marines (where one of his jobs was to walk in front of vehicles to find bombs), depression and alcoholism that pushed him to the brink of suicide. Since then he has built a global business, run ultramarathons like a 24 hour run and a 50 miler around a cul-de-sac, conducted humanitarian work in post-conflict zones, spent 7 days in darkness, silence and isolation, and explored the most hostile environments on the planet, from mountains to caves to polar icecaps. Combining his life experience with years of research in science and spirituality, Akshay wrote the book “Fearvana: The Revolutionary Science of How to Turn Fear Into Health, Wealth and Happiness." About the book, the Dalai Lama said “Fearvana inspires us to look beyond our own agonizing experiences and find the positive side of our lives.”  Akshay is now on a mission to help our human family build a positive relationship to suffering in order to create a life of greater meaning, purpose and fulfillment.

On Wednesday's Mark Levin Show, Democrats are pushing massive American Marxist plans to push social programs and spend trillions - even if they lower it by a trillion dollars - that will enshrine lasting changes to our lives by simply letting the debt grow. Frauds, fools, and phonies are saying that we're paying for programs that President Trump enacted, which is a lie. Even in a government shutdown, the government will continue collecting taxes. Another line that Democrats are telling is that the government will default on the debt service, this is also false because the federal government will have enough money to cover it from tax revenue. Now, raising the debt ceiling is about future spending, not about paying debt service, and this must be stopped. The Constitution is clear on this, the President cannot usurp the authority of Congress to commandeer their power of the purse. Then, the "Build Back Better" initiative uses taxes to fund leftwing armies during election day. They have fused the powers of government with the needs of the Democrat Party. Just like Gen. Mark Milley used the power of the military to his benefit. Later, Stuart and Kathy Scheller, call in, they are the parents of Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller who is currently in prison for publicly criticizing his chain of command over the Afghanistan withdrawal. The Scheller's said he fell on his own sword because he felt the need to stand up for the 13 slaughtered Marines and all the Marines that have served under him. The Scheller's coveted the prayers of all Americans for their son's situation. Afterward, the CDC is looking to fund a study to promote the left's position that guns are violent and are a public health crisis. This is another way to steal people's liberty.
