In the 1980's Tacoma, Washington, faced a stark increase in gang activity. The hilltop neighborhood was a particularly active subset of the city and became a hub for the illegal drug trade in the town. However, when one Army Ranger bought a home in the neighborhood, he took matters into his own hands. Sergeant Bill Foulk installed security cameras and began confronting the gangsters during drug deals. After weeks of this behavior, the crips decided to retaliate. They had no clue that Foulk was an Army Ranger and called a dozen of his Ranger buddies to help defend his home. A 10-minute shootout involving over 300 rounds and about 30 individuals from the crips and the US Army Rangers ensued. Known now as the Ash Street Shootout, the event became a catalyst in the way officers handled local policing.

A very happy 4th of July to everyone, as we celebrate by going behind the headlines of two of the most famous rescue missions in United States military history. The operations to save both US Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell and US Army Private First Class Jessica Lynch, both of which involved the Army Rangers. HBH is honored to welcome author, and the Army Ranger who was a part of both missions, Nicholas Moore.Nicholas was in the middle of his training at Ranger school on 9/11. As a result his career spans the most transformational period in the history of the US Army's legendary 75th Ranger Regiment. At the front lines of the Global War on Terror, Nicholas has been a part of the Rangers evolution from a support element, to Tier One special operations units such as Delta Force and SEAL Team Six, into a fully functional special operations unit in its own right. We highly recommend Nicholas Moore's book ‘Run to the Sound of the Guns: The True Story of an American Ranger at War in Afghanistan and Iraq'.
This week in the studio, a man with 20 years of service in the US Army. He served in such units as the 75th Ranger regiment, the 3rd Infantry Division, the 82nd Airborne, and the famed 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (Delta Force). He has undergone 11 combat deployments in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Horn of Africa. He has hunted the likes of Hussein, Zarkawi, and other notable deck of cards players. This has not been an easy life as most would understand, but in this one we have to go deeper to the root causes of the problems suffered by far to many veterans. Numerous concussions, blasts, breaches, TBI, and don't forget a generous dose of PTS. My guest has overcome those demons of his past and is now a shining example to other veterans, he teaches that at any point you can reinvent yourself to be anything that you need or want to be, and that there are brighter days ahead when you look in the right places. He now enjoys the outdoors, volunteer work, and making sure that those that surround him live their absolute best life. He's a board member of the All Secure Foundation and the President of VanSant Consulting. He's here in the studio to talk about the highs and lows, chasing the unicorn of adrenaline, and ultimately how to be happy in your life. It is my honor to introduce you to Chris VanSant.
With the offseason heating up and trade rumors swirling, we're looking at Mark Scheifele and talking about why he could be the ideal trade target for the Rangers!! Which players would the Rangers have to surrender, and would it be worth it?? Kaapo Kakko? Filip Chytil? Braden Schneider? Prospects and/or draft picks? Why Scheifele is an infinitely better trade target than Pierre-Luc Dubois. Plus, turning our attention to the NHL Draft and spotlighting a player who could be a Ranger target with the No. 63 pick!

Today's Combat Story is near and dear to my heart for reasons I can't share because they're classified. We hear the firsthand account from one of the men involved in the brutal 13 hours of fighting in Benghazi in 2012, Kris “Tanto” Paronto, who would later co-author the book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” and advise Director Michael Bay and the cast who created the movie of the same name.This is one of my favorite episodes. Time flew by as we touched on so many topics from the learnings Kris shared in two other books (The Patriot's Creed: Inspiration and Advice for Living a Heroic Life and The Ranger Way: Living the Code On and Off the Battlefield) to insight into what it meant to be a part of the CIA's GRS or Global Response Staff (read this CIA Career page to hear how interesting this job is and trust me when I say these guys were great: https://www.cia.gov/careers/jobs/protective-agent/) to how it felt the moment he and a handful of selfless other men decided to defy direct orders from above and risk their lives for other Americans in Libya. There's ZERO politics in this episode. If you're looking for that, you won't find it here. This is all about what happened to the people on the ground at the time, which made me appreciate Kris and his perspective even more.Since leaving the military and Agency, Kris has become a serial entrepreneur with a clothing line, vodka brand, podcast, shooting and medical training courses, and is now making his tactical programs more of an experience with E3 Firearms which goes beyond just hitting the range and is something that I think many of our listeners will want to be a part of. I hope you appreciate this wide ranging, hilarious, and selfless Combat Story as much as I did.

Julien Gauthier is back with the Rangers after signing a one-year, $800K dollar deal! Gauthier has requested a trade from the New York Rangers. Could Gauthier still be with the Rangers next season, despite not living up to the hype that comes with being a first-round pick? What could the Rangers get for him if they trade him? Strome, Copp and Vatrano are all likely to hit the free agent market. Alex Georgiev has requested (or re-requested a trade from the New York Rangers). Filip Chytil the most likely Ranger to be traded??? Episode 630. Intro song is “Leave the Lights On” by Passafire. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

***Für die erste Geschichte gibt es eine Inhaltswarnung: Es geht um sexuelle Handlungen, die während eines Mordes durchgeführt werden.*** In der ersten Geschichte geht es um einen jungen Pfadfinder, der sich während einer heißen Sommernacht einer bestimmten Neigung hingibt. Um einen Mann, der an einem kühlen Herbsttag kurz vor Feierabend noch einen letzten Kundentermin hat. Um einen Ranger, der endlich das tun kann, was er schon immer tun wollte und um einen Hundefänger und Kirchenmann, der endlich persönlichen Kontakt zu seinem langjährigen Brieffreund bekommt. In der zweiten Geschichte geht es um den jungen Fotografen John, der genug von der Betonwüste der Stadt hat und für sein Hobby aufs Land fährt, um neue, farbenfrohere Motive auf Film zu bannen. Während er auf einer saftigen Wiese einen wunderschön verwunschenen Wald mit seinem Sucher ins Visier genommen hat, fällt ihm plötzlich eine seltsame Gestalt auf, die es eilig zu haben scheint und im Wald verschwindet. Als John ihrer Fährte bis zum Ende gefolgt ist, steht er schließlich vor einem kleinen steinernen Gebäude und entschließt sich, mit seiner Kamera einen Blick hinter die dunklen Mauern zu werfen.

LEMUEL What? You got air and water. Freedom. What else you need? FANSHAW [longing] Tea. LEMUEL There's tea all over. But you cain't even-- FANSHAW It's not the drink itself, it's the act - the ceremony, if you will, of taking tea. Tea and crumpets. LEMUEL What on god's green earth is a crumpet? FANSHAW It's a... a... rather like a muffin, but more... refined. LEMUEL So you want boiled leaves and a refined muffin? Next town we roll into, I'll make sure and rustle y'up some. FANSHAW You don't understand. Tea is a symbol. Sitting down to tea with someone - it represents refinement. Civilization. SOUND CREAK OF SIGN HUNG FROM TREE LEMUEL Speakin o' civilization-- FANSHAW [sarcastic] Ah. Yes. I'm certain any town out here will be chock-a-block with tea and crumpets. LEMUEL "Pickens Rock". Makes me think of... FANSHAW Slim pickings? LEMUEL [agreeing] I reckon. 2 TOWN MUSIC SOUND SLOW HOOFBEATS ON HARDPACK. SLIGHT ECHO, EMPTINESS FANSHAW Slim pickings, indeed. No one appears to be in residence. LEMUEL Don't look abandoned, though. Ev'thing's shut up tight. Mebbe there's a county fair or sumpin? FANSHAW Possible, yes. Oh, there's someone-- LEMUEL Sir? GABBY [drunk and confused] Whaa-a-at? LEMUEL I'm shore sorry to bother you, feller, but-- GABBY h-h-hh- who are you? LEMUEL --where is ev'body? GABBY They's a-a-a-all just gone off to the hangin. Who a-a-are y'all? LEMUEL Which way? [prompting] To the hangin'? GABBY Follow the rud, as you're goin. At the fork, take a-a-a-a left. You'll hear 'em by then. They's mighty worked up. FANSHAW Lemuel, what are you thinking? LEMUEL Tell me, old feller - who they fixing to set dancin? GABBY Nice boy, thaa-a-at Lute Fowler. Never woulda pegged him for a-a-a drygulcher. LEMUEL Figgers. We never end up nowhere, but they's an emergency awaitin us. Come on. [clicks to the horses] SOUND HOOVES TAKE OFF FANSHAW [calling back] Thank you very much!

CROWD QUIETS, THEN BUZZ STARTS FANSHAW I can't wait to hear this. LEMUEL [through gritted teeth] Shut up. [voice raised] I hear there's fixin to be a hangin?

CROWD BUZZ of MISGIVING LARKY Well, we don't-- SHERIFF Put a bit in it, Larky. We didn't need no judge, ranger. We got ourselves a confession. LUTE [yelling, very hoarse] I never did-- [gulp as noose is tightened] HARP and MADDY [scream and cry] LEMUEL Funny. That sounds like a denial t'me. You do realize that without a judgment from a legal court o' law, this ain't no execution, it's a murder. CROWD BUZZ, STARTING TO FALL APART. FANSHAW Is it? SHERIFF I'm the law in this here town, friend. I don't take kindly to you walkin in here and trying to cause a commotion. LEMUEL I ain't tryin to do nothin of the sort, Sheriff. I just don't want to see a lawman like yerself let hisself get swept up by a mob and, uh-- FANSHAW --be forced to condone an injustice? LEMUEL --be forced to condone an injustice. I know how tetchy a mob can be, and I cain't rightly blame you for not wantin a try and face 'em down - but with me at your side, I reckon we could stand. SHERIFF [furious, but trying to stay jovial] Well, now. I guess I'll thank you very kindly, and..... [long breath, calming self, then turns away to call out] Good people! As I have long maintained, we must wait for the proper authority to conduct this properly. We'll keep Lute Fowler locked up in jail until the circuit judge comes through next month - just as we shoulda done from the start. [back] Larky, go get that - gentlemen - down and back to the jail. LEMUEL That's right big of you, Sheriff. Now I'd be mighty honored to help you with any little thing you might need, seeing as I'm in town for a while. SHERIFF For a while? How long? LEMUEL Don' rightly know. Depends on how long it takes me to find what I'm looking for. SHERIFF What's that? LEMUEL 'fficial business. Caint go into it. SHERIFF Very well, then. I've got to get back to town, see this varmint locked up tight. [grits teeth] Again. SOUND FOOTSTEPS STOMP AWAY FANSHAW A Ranger? You've never--? LEMUEL Never said I was - just ast if they'd heered of 'em. FANSHAW What happens when they demand to see your credentials? I somehow think that things are not so different over here - impersonating an official is bound to get you into hot water. LEMUEL I'll cross that bridge when I get there-- HARP Mister? LEMUEL What? Oh, hello l'il pardner. Didn't I see you standin up front--? HARP You saved my pa, din't you? MADDY [yes] Uh-huh! LEMUEL Now, I just saw that justice is done proper-like.

We's just real upset, y'unnerstand? I'm Harp Fowler, and this is my little sister Maddy - Madrigal. LEMUEL Well, I tell you what, Harp. And Maddy. I promise I will look into the case. That's all. If your pa's innocent, then I'll find it out. All right? HARP I reckon. Well, if you need any help or anything, you can find me at the Lazy H ranch, up Blackbird Gulch. I can shoot a gun! LEMUEL I'll keep that in mind. Y'all get on now. FANSHAW [musing] Harp, Lute, and Madrigal? What would they have named the next child? MADDY Viola if twas a girl. Fortay for a boy. That's what mama always says. HARP [annoyed] Oh, c'mon. SOUND SMALL FEET WALK AWAY FANSHAW [shocked] I... say. LEMUEL What? FANSHAW That child - the little girl. She's... she spoke to me. She heard me. LEMUEL [sorry for the kid] Damn. 4 SCENE OF THE CRIME MUSIC SOUND FEET ON ROUGH GROUND LARKY Just about here, I spect. LEMUEL Thankee kindly. LARKY Whatchoo specting a find? Lute kilt the Jenkins boy nigh on a week ago, and it's rained since. RAFE Hello? You lookin fer me? LEMUEL Jest tryin to get a feel fer whut happened. [beat] I kin find my own way back to town. LARKY I'd be right pleased to get a chance to observe a real Ranger at work. I won't make no bother. LEMUEL [reluctant] Fine. RAFE Hey, I'm over here. FANSHAW [whisper] Keep him busy. I'll see what I can find out. LEMUEL [thinks, then] Where'd you say you thought the shooter was? RAFE Shooter? What shooter? LARKY Up thissaway. SOUND FOOTSTEPS OFF RAFE [calling] Hey! Fellers! FANSHAW Hold on there. RAFE What you want? FANSHAW My apologies sir, but I'm afraid I have some rather bad news for you. RAFE Why you talk like that? FANSHAW There's no kind way to say this. [sigh] I'm afraid you are dead. RAFE Dead? What're you, then, an ayngel? FANSHAW Oh! No. We - that gentleman over there and I - are trying to find out what happened to you. RAFE How come he ain't askin me hisself? FANSHAW Well, he would - but that fellow with the colorful name "Larky" would probably find it odd. RAFE I... guess I see. Tsch. Dunno what I can tell you - I guess I really didn't even ... yet... FANSHAW Realize that you're dead? It's not uncommon, I fear. 5 OUTHOUSE MUSIC SOUND WOODEN DOOR SWINGS SHUT LEMUEL [quiet] Where in hell are you, Fanshaw? FANSHAW [shocked, muffled] Lemuel! Don't you prefer some privacy? LEMUEL [quiet] Consarn it, ya ninny. That Larky is on me like a tick on a tinhorn. I figgured this is the only way to get out from under him. FANSHAW Well, I hope it's a two-seater. [coming on] Rafe didn't see anything - he was ambushed. Shot in the back. LEMUEL I got sumpin more important. This. SOUND SOMETHING PULLED OUT OF A POCKET FANSHAW A badge? LEMUEL A ranger's badge, and I surely didn't whittle it myself. Someone slipped it inta my pocket. I'm thinkin it musta been in that crowd at the hangin - only time anyone but Larky's been near enough. Don't reckon you saw nothin'? FANSHAW Terribly sorry, but no. No one that stood out. LEMUEL Seems the coach line here sees enough traffic that there's more'n a few strangers in town. I couldn't poke much more'n that. FANSHAW But who could have given that to you, and why? LEMUEL How's this fer a guess - there's a ranger, here in town, and he don't want no one to know who he is. FANSHAW But to give his badge away? LEMUEL I'm figgurin he 'preciated my stoppin the hangin and dint want them fellers to find out I weren't no ranger and start the whole thing up again. Jest acause he's hidin out don't mean he thinks we don't need no ranger in town. FANSHAW [slight exasperatd sigh] Perhaps if you could get away from this Larky fellow, the real ranger would make himself known to you.

The Blueshirt Underground Show with Jim and Eddie got its start in 2009, known then as Blueshirt Banter Radio. Our idea was simple: a weekly live broadcast, talking about all the latest Ranger news, taking calls, interacting with listeners, and doing our best to entertain. No topic has ever been off limits, rants about players, announcers, opponents, and sometimes even fans are commonplace. It's a show that bills itself as “Not so Serious Radio for the Serious New York Rangers fan”. You can watch us live on You Tube, be sure to subscribe to the Blueshirt Underground page on You Tube Join our Facebook Group: The Blueshirt Underground If you want to talk to Jim and Eddie during the show, you can join us live on video with your mobile device or on your home computer!

156 miles of Afghanistan stood between a convoy led by US Army Special Forces and the Forward Operating Base (FOB) they were to resupply. As their destination was in the very heart of Taliban territory, they knew they would be attacked. However, no one could have predicted the absolutely terrifying firefight would last for three days. HBH is honored to be joined by US Army Special Forces Green Beret, Sniper, Ranger, Professional MMA Fighter and NYT bestselling author Tim Kennedy.Afghanistan's Oruzgan province was so hostile in 2008, that resupplying FOB Anaconda via aircraft was deemed too dangerous. Thus, the only means of completing the mission was via an 80-vehicle convoy. The only road was very narrow, made of dirt and ran at the base of a deep valley in the province most loyal to the Taliban. The moment the Green Berets and their Czech and Afghan allies left Kandahar, they were squarely in harms way.Tim had seen plenty of action before this mission. However, he and the men he fought alongside faced a level of violence and peril that few soldiers ever encounter, and even fewer live to tell the story.We highly recommend Tim Kennedy's brand new and already New York Times bestselling book, ‘Scars and Stripes'.Don't forget to subscribe, download, rate and review Heroes Behind Headlines.
Happy last Monday of Pride Month, Goons, and welcome to a Call Your Ghoulfriends episode here on Slashers Podcast. Today, we are going all out and full on drag queen with our episode on Death Drop Gorgeous. You can view this one on Tubi or Shudder, and I'm sure Prime and other platforms, but Tubi is free, so if you don't want to cough up the cash, Tubi's your best bet! This film centers around a dejected bartender and an aging drag queen, who try to survive the eccentric and hostile nightlife of a corrupt city, as a masked maniac slaughters young gay men and drains them of blood. The film is written and directed by Brandon Perras, Michael J Ahern and Christopher Dalpe, which is essentially their debut but they have more in the works that we're super excited for. Both Mikey and Ade feel it's important for horror to showcase more queer writers and directors, as well as story lines. We're so excited for you to hear this one, because the Ghoulfriends discuss how horror does have tons of homo-erotic moments, and not just A Nightmare on Elm Street part 2, but even more recent films such as Wrong Turn (reboot) and The Ranger feature LGBTQIA+ themes. We feel that this genre is a great place to showcase those themes. So grab your pride flag and your best pair of heels and listen in! In addition to this fabulous episode, we also feature a HIDDEN TRACK today, with the song "Reflection" by Losing Lament. They are based out of Florida, so please check them out at losinglament.com where you can see their dark, bloody, bad ass music video, and also please find them on Instagram @losinglament , in addition to Facebook. Hope y'all enjoy this one, and if you want more hidden tracks in the future, please feel free to recommend up and coming artists and we will do our best to feature them! Finally, since this is still Pride Month, if you would like to give back to LGBTQIA+ community, please support the onepulsefoundation.org . We love and miss our 49 and we will not let hate win.
