Ep. 197 Congressional Candidate Joe Kent joins Dr. Rose on The Scalpel   In this episode of The Scalpel, we're proud to be joined by Joe Kent. Joe is running for congress in the state of Washington and at the Scalpel we felt it was very important to introduce you to him. If you don't know who he is.   https://joekentforcongress.com https://t.me/JoeKent4WA   We often wish we could find people to elect to represent us to the high levels of government, to protect the constitution and our rights, - to protect the idea of the United States of America. We're left wondering - where are these people?   Joe Kent is one of them - and we want you to meet him.   CONTACT THE SHOW Website: https://scalpeledge.com Email: KFR@scalpeledge.com Twitter: @TheScalpelEdge Instagram: @TheScalpelPodcast   #TheScalpel   About Joe Kent: (From https://joekentforcongress.com/about-joe/)   I was born in a cabin in Sweet Home, Oregon, and grew up in Portland, Oregon.  Growing up, I spent much of my formative years in the Cascades and Columbia River Gorge, thanks to Boy Scouts and Explorer Scouts. I have always considered the Pacific Northwest my home and wanted to fight for this nation.   When I was eighteen, I enlisted in the Army as an infantryman and earned my way into the Ranger Regiment and then Special Forces. After 9/11, I volunteered at every opportunity to serve in combat. I did this for over twenty years and eleven combat deployments. I intended to continue to serve our nation in hostile locations abroad until my world turned upside down on January 16th, 2019, when my wife, Shannon Kent, was killed fighting ISIS in Syria. At that moment, I knew I had to step away from putting myself in physical danger so I could be there for our two young sons. Shannon was killed approximately one month after President Trump attempted to pull our troops out of Syria because we had met our military objective. This attempt to end a war brought out the Establishment's true colors as they resisted him at every step.   Seeing the Establishment's hubris and contempt for a President that represented the country's will and the people's best interests, I knew I had to act. However, this time my fight was to defend America First policies.  No one asked me to do this. I sought out every opportunity and any media outlet that would give me a platform to use my twenty-year expertise physically fighting these wars to articulate how correct President Trump was.   Defending Trump's policies gave me a taste of the savage fight we face against a hostile mainstream media and deeply entrenched political class. I eagerly sought out the opportunity to defend President Trump when The Atlantic, a well-known publication, printed slanderous accusations about the President.   I moved back to the Pacific Northwest to get my sons closer to my parents and family. After living in Portland for a short time, I realized that the far left had ruined that city and relocated to Yacolt, Washington. I chose to live here because I knew that this district's people share my traditional conservative values, and it would be an ideal environment to raise my sons. I voted for Representative Beutler to stand firm for my family and our district. She betrayed that trust and made it clear that I needed to act decisively.   In over 20 years of fighting on the battlefields and through my wife's death, I know what it feels like to be on the receiving end of failed policy. The Establishment is too self-absorbed to represent the will of the people they are supposed to represent.  I have also seen firsthand that you cannot persuade someone to fight when the odds are against you. Only those with the courage of conviction will continue to fight when the odds are not in their favor.  No one has asked me to do this. I'm volunteering now, just like I did 22 years ago.  Suppose we rely on traditional candidates that have done nothing but run for office or have no experience in a hard fight and have never been in danger. In that case, our voices and our movement will succumb to the left's dark vision for this nation.  Portland and Olympia demonstrate this with their failed policies that surround this great district.   I want to go forward and fight because I want to fight, and I know how to fight.  This is for the future of our nation and the legacy that we will leave for our children. This is what is compelling me to run for office. It would be an honor to earn your vote and serve this great country once more.

Ted B. Braden was “the perfect combination of high intelligence and criminality.” - Jo Ann, Ted Braden's sister-in-lawNovember 24th, 2021 will mark the 50th Anniversary of the only unsolved skyjacking case in American history. The case, nicknamed “Norjack” by the FBI as it involved the hijacking of a Northwest Orient 727 Airliner, would create a folk hero, if not a legend, of a mysterious man who would be immortalized by the name D.B. Cooper.This fascinating case has garnered a myriad of colorful and interesting suspects. One of the “dark horse” suspects who emerged over the years was a member of the most elite Special Forces unit created by the United States Government to serve during the war in Vietnam: a secret and covert unit called the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam – Studies and Observations Group (MACV-SOG). This rather benign-sounding name served as a thin veil, masking what was known to a few as the “black ops” unit in Vietnam.Many of the soldiers who served in this elite unit consider one of their own to be the infamous D.B. Cooper who hijacked Northwest Orient Flight 305; demanded a ransom of $200,000 in cash; and jumped out of the lowered aft staircase of the plane into the stormy night, never to be seen again. It was even stated by some of the most highly-decorated members of MACV-SOG, legends such as Major John Plaster and Sergeant Billy Waugh, that one man in SOG had the parachuting expertise, the know-how, and, most of all, the “balls of steel” to pull off the D.B. Cooper skyjacking.This man was Ted B. Braden.Raised in the Mid-West during the Great Depression, young Ted could not have foreseen that the trajectory of his life would be set by events happening thousands of miles from his boyhood home. At age 16, Braden joined the army to fight in World War II, a decision that led to a twenty-year on-again/off-again military career marked by dangerous covert operations; C.I.A. intrigue; desertion, arrest, and incarceration (only for him to be freed without trial under mysterious circumstances); Cold War mercenarism; and ultimately, distrust in a government for whom he could have surrendered his life.The story of Ted B. Braden, master parachutist and soldier of fortune, trained by Uncle Sam in the art of war but not in the art of peace, is the quintessential American story, the story of the men of his generation and of a war that defined that generation.Ted Braden was an enigma as a person, driven by a brilliant, unorthodox mind that struggled to adapt to a society based on law and order and routine. He was a true super soldier who was suspected of having mental illness, most likely from post-traumatic stress disorder. He was a tortured soul with the burning frustration that he could never parlay his soldiering skills into big financial gains. He was fearless in his military endeavors to the point of risking lives but was endowed with natural instincts of survival that kept him and the men under his command alive.It is tragic that a man like this is no longer alive to share his story. It is tragic that a man like this never will be fully understood. He had an ability to be very kind and very cruel, an ability to be very forthright and very cunning, an ability to be very committed as a soldier and very adrift as a civilian.Was he the man who fearlessly leapt out of a Boeing 727 with $200,000 strapped around his body on a rainy Thanksgiving Eve in 1971? We may never know, but even if Ted Braden is not D.B. Cooper, he is one of the most fascinating people whose story you never knew - until now.

Ron Campbell is the creator of Mindshift, a 3 part system designed to help individuals discover their potential. Ron began his childhood in South Africa in an abusive home. As a result, he decided to enroll in the Navy as soon as he was eligible, carrying the dysfunction he learned at home with him. He served in the special forces for twelve years in active combat, then in Isreal for five years, became a pharmacist, and eventually moved to the US.In this episode, we kick it off by talking about his journey and the defining moment he realized what happened to him and how his PTSD was playing out in his life. He shares how the Mindshift system came about, what it consists of, and who it serves. He talks about the importance of what we learn in our early years and how it molds us. He also emphasizes that words are powerful and that we can learn to release the dysfunction we carry.Some of Ron's critical takeaways in his journey are that sometimes experience trumps education, and you can't begin something new unless you let something go. Additionally, he uses several powerful stories in this episode to convey his message, and we finish up a little more lighthearted with some rapid-fire questions.You can learn more about Ron by visiting www.mindshiftsystem.com.These are our friends.

Show Notes:I think it's almost a universally understood fact of life that the old kids in a family are the guinea pigs and life tends to be very different when you compare the oldest and youngest children in a family. Part of that is that life circumstances change and part of that is that parents get better with time. Generally though, this is because parents tend to use an equity based parenting system and not an equality based system. But what is the difference between equity and equality and how can we use it to more effectively parent? On the show today we talk about this ethical principle and so many others that we can apply in parenting, business, and in life as we strive to make better decisions and have better long-term outcomes.Brad Agle is the George W. Romney Endowed Professor, and Professor of Ethics and Leadership in the Marriott School of Business at Brigham Young University (BYU). He is founder, chairman, and chief scientist at Merit Leadership and served as a Fellow and chair of the BYU Wheatley Institution Ethics Initiative from 2008 - 2020. Previous to his appointment at BYU in 2009, he spent 17 years as a professor of Strategy, Organizations, and Environment in the Katz Graduate School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh, where he also served for eight years as the inaugural director of the David Berg Center for Ethics and Leadership. His teaching brought the University of Pittsburgh the distinction of being the #2 ranked executive MBA program in the world in business ethics by Business Week. Dr. Agle received a Ph.D. in Business Management from the University of Washington and a B.S. in Information Management from BYU. In 2014 he published the book “Research Companion to Behavioral Ethics in Organizations: Constructs and Measures.” In 2016 he published the book "The Business Ethics Field Guide." Brad and his wife Kristi are the parents of Erik, Lindsay, Christian, and Amanda. On the show today we discuss the following:Who is Prof. Agle and what does he do (4:18)The creation of the ethical field guide for the special forces (5:30)The 13 Ethical Dilemmas (19:53)The ethics of loyalty and it's application in Nazi Germany (22:22)How to apply these principles outside your professional life (31:30)Consequences for not following ethical principles (37:03)Equity versus equality in parenting (41:22)What does it mean to him to be a Contender (45:27)How to learn more about Professor Brad Agle:Prof. Agle's full BYU BioProf. Agle's Book: The Business Ethics Field GuideAdditional Books, Individuals, or Items Discuss in the show:Moral InjuryDalow Concentration CampLeading SaintsThe Man in the Arena SpeechMerit LeadershipContact the Host: rob@contenderswanted.comGiveaway: If you'd like to learn what you need to do to be successful in your own life, we're giving away our free e-workbook called “How to Find Your Path to Your Success”.

Rabbi Dave is Joined by the newly minted Jedi Knight Rod who recently joined the Church of the Jedi to ask a few questions, which is what goliards do. Were the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed by an air burst weapon, ala Tunguska? A recent scientific paper says that it happened just that way. But don't just follow that science quite so fast! No one ever expects the Ninjas. Especially in the middle of the night on on a Special Forces base in California. And in the great tradition of the "white Canvas" art movement, a Danish artist has decided that the best art is the art of theft. In 1944 a US Airborne trooper did his wounded buddy a solid. Years later he discovered that his actions that day had become legendary. And delicious. We have a bunch of new listeners thanks to the comic strip Day by Day, which will feature the show this week.

Sometimes, you have to fight for the things you care about.  On this episode of the Making Bank podcast, Tim Kennedy discusses his career in the military, the UFC, and Socratic education. Tim saw with his own kids how every child learns differently and set out to create an education that reflected that. His school, Apogee, seeks to help every child fulfill their potential.   Tim also chats about his time in the UFC fighting, as well as in Special Forces. He covers what inspired him to join the military and the lessons he now applies to his businesses. Listen to the episode to hear more about Apogee's education model, boxing victories, and war stories.   Listen to Josh and Tim discuss Socratic Education: New Adventures (1:33) Tim discusses the lessons he's learned on pivoting from the military, as well as this past year—and is applying them to his entrepreneurship. He is launching 12 new companies, including a school. Apogee: An Acton Academy (3:04) Tim's venture that he's most proud of is his school Apogee. Having been homeschooled himself, Tim understands and follows the model that parents should facilitate the education of their children.   A Socratic School (8:45) Tim explains how at Apogee, the students—otherwise known as “heroes”—are active participants in their own learning. They are the ones leading the classroom discussions and activities and with the guidance of the teachers, the students discover the answers themselves.  When accepting heroes into their studios, Apogee looks for parents and children who are both willing to try this new approach.   Different Learning Styles for Different Children (11:22) No two children learn the same way. Tim's seen it in his own children, and he's seen it in the heroes at Apogee. Traditional schooling follows certain agendas—whether that be the teacher's, the school's, or the governments. At Apogee, the focus is on the children.  How Tim Manages Multiple Companies (14:36) When it comes to managing multiple companies, Tim hires the right people and then allows them to do their jobs properly, without being micromanaged. Tim also follows a military approach that emphasizes training, as well as organization.  People, Purpose, and Plan (17:41) Tim first makes sure that the person he's looking to hire has the right attitude and culture to fit well into the organization. Next, he looks to see if his purpose aligns with their purpose. Finally, he looks to see what their plan is, how they will execute it, and if they even planned in the first place. Discipline (22:49) Without discipline, there is no success. For Tim, discipline is commitment to a plan that is executed in 30-minute blocks. If you have a plan, even when life gets in the way, you can go back to the plan.  Tim also touches on how discipline can not only help your business but also your family life.  Tim's Background (28:14) For those who don't know, Tim shares his background of homeschooling, sports, martial arts and more. After a career in UFC and watching 9/11 unfold, Tim joined the military and became a Green Beret.   The Camera's Focus (37:11) Zooming out, Tim and Josh discuss Special Forces and the state of the US right now. Lessons from the Special Forces (46:46) Tim explains the key lessons he's learned from the Special Forces that he now implements in his businesses. He values qualities like communication, and more. The UFC (49:37) Tim talks about his time at the UFC and what he would've done differently.  Stopping Poverty Stops Trafficking (55:04) Before the episode wraps up, Tim touches on SERE school, as well as ways you can help stop crimes such as drug and sex trafficking. He encourages those who can to open community centers, gyms, programs and more. If we can prevent poverty, then we can prevent other crimes as well.  Links mentioned: Making Bank - Website https://sheepdogresponse.com/  https://www.instagram.com/timkennedymma/

On this week's podcast episode SOFREP senior editor and SOFREP Radio host Steve Balestrieri along with SOFREP Editor-in-Chief Sean Spoonts talk with Jay Collins. Jay is a Special Forces combat medic veteran and Republican candidate for Congress with Florida's 14th Congressional District. Jay Collins spent two decades as a Green Beret and deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. In the fight, he lost his leg. Nevertheless, he recovered, returned to active duty, and tremendously served in the Green Berets for nearly six more years. Jay's Special Forces Selection was unique. He was part of the infamous Ice Storm Class of November 2002, one of the very rare occasions when SERE school had to be shut down. The experience of Selection imparted Jay with the valuable lesson of leaving things better than how you found them. In sharing tales of Special Forces classes with Jay, Steve recounts a hilarious story of Green Berets pretending to be NASA candidates. After all, everything can happen in Selection. Jay also shares the awesome story of how he performed surgery on his own arm during deployment. Since Jay is running for Congress, the conversation also turns to politics. Jay usefully reminds the audience that what unites us is less than what separates us. America will only be strong and healthy through unity. That is, after all, the American way. As Jay says, it's not about the red nor the blue; it's about the red, white, and blue.

Alas, now an ancient prophesy has been fulfilled… Telemus said all these things would come to pass someday. — Homer's Odyssey During this episode, the Honorable Dr. Mike Vickers provides his thoughts on a wide range of strategic issues--all of which have connections with the information environment. Mike makes the case that America is like the cyclops in Homer's epic poem, The Odyssey. Like the cyclops, the United States is being blinded and deceived by clever adversaries. Mike also discusses China, India, Estonian technology implementation, the authoritarian-democracy trade off, and international relations theory. He also gives a nuanced examination regarding "whole-of-nation" sloganeering. On one hand, Mike discourages simple phrases that might promote inadequate solutions; on the other, he does agree that we are at a point where we need to cohere around a national strategy and direct our instruments of power productively--including our citizenry.

Vickers is career as a special operator, CIA operations officer, national security policy maker and Intelligence Community leader spanned the last two decades of the Cold War through a decade and a half of our war with al-Qa'ida, its allies and its offshoots – service that saw unprecedented senior tenure across Republican and Democratic administrations. Most recently, from 2011 to 2015, Dr. Vickers served as the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, exercising authority, direction and control over the National Security Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, Defense Security Service, and the intelligence components of the Military Services and Combatant Commands. As the USD(I), he conceived and led a comprehensive transformation of defense intelligence capabilities, encompassing the signals intelligence system and overhead space architecture, penetrating and persistent remotely piloted aircraft, the Department's strategic human intelligence posture, its corps of all-source analysts, and its cyber operations forces. From 2007 to 2011, he served as the first and only Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations, Low-Intensity Conflict and Interdependent Capabilities. As the ASD SO/LIC&IC, Dr. Vickers was the “Service” Secretary for all Special Operations Forces, and had policy oversight of all of DoD's operational capabilities – strategic forces (nuclear forces, missile defense, space, cyber), conventional force transformation (air, ground and maritime), and Special Operations Forces. He conceived and led the largest expansion of Special Operations Forces in our nation's history, and oversaw several other major capability investments ranging from next generation long-range strike to undersea warfare to deter future great power war. Throughout his nearly decade-long service as a national security policy maker and Intelligence Community leader, Dr. Vickers was heavily involved in operations. He was a key operational strategist for the campaign to dismantle and defeat core al-Qa'ida, and played a major policy and planning role in the operation that killed Usama bin Ladin. He oversaw counterterrorism operations in multiple countries and a wide range of other operations, from the surge of forces in Afghanistan to sensitive intelligence collection operations, paramilitary support to opposition forces battling despotic regimes, operations against rogue state nuclear weapons and missile programs, and operations against drug cartels. During the nearly decade and a half that spanned the operational phase of his career, he served as a Special Forces weapons and engineer sergeant, as the commander of a classified counterterrorism unit, and as CIA operations officer.  As a Special Forces solider and officer, he was trained to parachute behind Soviet lines with a “backpack” nuclear weapon, and led hostage rescue operations and sensitive intelligence collection operations. As a CIA officer, he played key roles in the invasion of Grenada, the US government's operational response to the Beirut bombings, and the covert effort to drive the Red Army out of Afghanistan. As the principal strategist for the multi-billion dollar Afghanistan covert action program – the largest and most successful covert action program in CIA's history – Dr. Vickers developed the winning strategy when very few thought it was possible to win. His contributions to the first war the Red Army had ever lost and US victory in the Cold War were chronicled in the film and New York Times best seller, Charlie Wilson's War. Dr. Vickers has received the nation's highest awards in the fields of intelligence and defense, including the Presidential National Security Medal and the OSS Society's William J. Donovan Award.  He holds a Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and a B.A. from the University of Alabama.  He has written a memoir of his career, to be published by Knopf Penguin Random House in 2022.  He currently serves as an Executive Vice President at In-Q-Tel, a Principal with the Telemus Group, a senior advisor to the Boston Consulting Group, a senior fellow at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and on several corporate, non-profit and government boards.

A true stone artist, Paolo talks to us about his beginnings, his arrival to Canada, the country he loves because it has given him so much. Paolo was a peacekeeper, in the army, Special Forces as a teenager and into his 30's, working for the government studying civil engineering in college back in Italy, originally from Viciano, on the edge of Naples. Paolo's construction career began with him studying history, studying techniques from centuries back, studying what and how and why Michelangelo did what he did with the works of art that we all know so well. Paolo's education and scope of work involves going to and choosing blocks of stone direct from the quarries, understanding true book match cutting, slab match cutting or random. Planning the cuts, setting up the cuts, quarry manufacturing is a generational skillset, the father teaches the son and they look at the mountain, they assess the best place to begin, do they cut into or up the mountain? There is a real art to diamond rope cutting blocks of stone from a mountain.Everyone thinks that natural stone will never end but it's difficult to say, some say there is another 300 years' worth but if you consider technology and machinery being able to remove the stone faster it could be 100 years. There is a monopoly on the stone, the price of stone fluctuates with the supply and demand. Paolo is always nervous about his projects, he takes that nervousness and embraces it, it challenges him, he uses his experiences throughout the years to solve things, he's learned how to manipulate the physical properties of stone. Paolo wants to cross his limits, he wants to test, educate, experiment, challenge and take stone to new heights, he wants to put his hand in the fire, he wants to see how things are and will they last based on his calculations and experiences. Every tile trade must understand structure and where the structure and or point loads are and extra care should be placed at those points especially when installing large format tiling and stone. Paolo has never worked a day in his life, because he loves what he does, it's his passion. Paolo discusses installing marble slabs in garages, that's right, full slabs of marble on garage floors, he has clients that request, or desire, or expect to drive over marble, not concrete, we discuss. He shares his technique of installing dry pack “fresh” to achieve 1000 pounds per square inch. Paolo has a lot of respect for history and learning from the past teachers, some were engineers, most weren't but they understood how to separate the body by the spirit and become free to think of new ways, better ways to design and build. He has clients ask him,”make my wife cry tears of happiness”. Lastly, Paolo shares another great passion of his, food, and he's been working on a mobile pizza stone oven and great quality pizza, must listen to how he talks about pizza. One more last note, Paolo discusses his custom slab and mosaic work that he's developed and he shares how he does it.

Join us as we go back 40 years to a movie that looked ahead 18 years, to a time that is now 24 years ago, as we look at the John Carpenter cult classic - Escape from NY.    The year is 1997, and the president of a tyrannical United States has had his plane hijacked and crashed into the maximum security prison formerly known as New York City. The security of the world depends on saving the president and ensuring the new world order stays intact. The government known for good decision making, decides to extort a former Special Forces veteran and world renown criminal Snake Plissken to save the president. Snake has 24 hours to accomplish this feat or die. Snake manages to avoid sewer dwelling scavengers and barbarian clad crooks on his journey through NY. Finally with the help of some old frenemies, he battles it out against a pimped-out version of Chef from South Park to save the President of the United States. Will Snake make it out alive? Does he trust his government to keep their word? Who's the baddest man around? The names Plissken…   Hosts: Ryan Lootens, Erin McCabe, & Jay Hoffman Guest Hosts: J.D.

A brave and thought-provoking episode where Rob speaks to Ollie Ollerton at breakpoint HQ. They discuss what's changed since they first met, dealing with trauma, mindset and of course business. KEY TAKEAWAYS  You can never beat or replace a face to face interaction. But there are so many things that can be done online and you can reach so many people. Be prepared to be dynamic. This is how Ollie survived the many ups and downs of both business and life. You can't fool the universe, your wants and desires are there no matter what decisions you think you have made. Ollie felt this massively when he was axed from Who Dares Wins. He was unhappy doing that show, this was the universe giving him a way out. Humans are designed to thrive with struggles. You need to be honest with yourself, if you are where you want to be and if you are happy. You should be constantly evolving. An experience with halogenics and the psychedelic drug ayahuasca in Costa Rica allowed Ollie to accept his past, acknowledge his mistakes and move forward in his life, healing past trauma and giving him direction. Good things don't just come from good events. The most growth and development comes from hardship. BEST MOMENTS  “They're trying to be who they were before the event, you're not that person anymore” “We are going to downsize to capitalise” “I'll lead by example and do it” “You're not dealing with it just by being positive” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://robmoore.com/ bit.ly/Robsupporter https://robmoore.com/podbooks ABOUT THE HOST Rob Moore is an author of 9 business books, 5 UK bestsellers, holds 3 world records for public speaking, entrepreneur, property investor, and property educator.

Excerpt “By December 2001, ten CIA teams—including Team Alpha and totaling a few dozen CIA officers—had secured victory across Afghanistan. Fighting alongside them was Special Forces troops operating symbiotically with US airpower. Among those troops was a unit from Britain's Special Boat Service (SBS), operating in the tradition of their country's Special Operations Executive (SOE), which inspired the OSS. Jettisoning a directive that restricted their ability to fight, the SBS headed toward the sound of gunfire.The complexity of Afghanistan was apparent to Team Alpha. False surrenders, switching sides, warlord machinations, prisoner abuse, suicide attacks, and ethnic ferment were facts of life. This was a country—if it was a country at all—that could not be controlled. After the surviving members of Team Alpha left Afghanistan, the US military took over and American forces became occupiers rather than insurgents. Conventional troops poured into the country, and fortified bases were established.”Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/theprotectors)

Welcome back to the Talking Lead Show episode TLP 204 Replay!  This week Lefty delves into The XM17 Modular Handgun System (MHS) competition. The United States Army and United States Air Force competition for a new service pistol. With so many complaints with the Beretta 92FS aka: M-9, after 2o years it was time to replace it with a more modern, more lethal, more modular handgun.  For now, the M9's replacement appears to be the Sig Sauer P320.  Was the “best” handgun chosen?  Was the MHS competition ended prematurely?  Did the Government pick price over performance again?  We discuss these questions and more in this episode of Talking Lead! To help with the discussion we invited a qualified group of current and former Military servicemen to join in the discussion. John Peterson: A former Army Special Forces soldier with service before and after 9/11 overseas both as an SF troop and intelligence contractor. John has served as a full time firearms instructor at Smith & Wesson Academy and Sig Sauer Academy for 3 years each, then a tour in Afghanistan as a Special Forces soldier, then serving at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security before becoming a contractor supporting the war effort.  Earlier in his career, he served as an Infantryman in the U.S. Army during the Reagan era, before going in the Special Forces. As an instructor, he has taught in over 60 types of firearms, tactics, driving, and intelligence courses as well as at 55 conferences to date. He has taught to police officers from all 50 states, all of the federal law enforcement agencies, and numerous allied countries as well as corrections, executive protection, private security,  and several thousand private citizens.

Mass casualty events are rare and thus the mistakes made and lessons learned are often repeated, over and over. In this episode, emergency physician and former Special Forces medic Mike Shertz, MD walks us through the steps on how to be an effective first receiver of mass casualty victims and shares the lessons written in blood from previous events.  Listen on: iTunes Spotify Stitcher   Guest Bio: Mike Shertz MD is an emergency physician who spent 13 years as a Green Beret and a Special Forces medic. He is the founder and purveyor of Crisis Medicine which teaches and trains first responders in tactical casualty care. Check out this video that we did together in 2019 on how to place and remove a tourniquet and this one on how to pack a gunshot wound with combat gauze.    This episode is in support of the I AM ALS. I AM ALS was founded by Brian Wallach and his wife Sandra shortly after his diagnosis at the age of 37. He was given 6 months to live, and now 4 years later he is leading a revolution to find a cure. People often refer to ALS as rare, which is not really so. The lifetime risk is around 1 in 300. Since Lou Gehrig was diagnosed 80 years ago, available treatments have been shown to extend life a mere 3 months. I AM ALS supports research, legislation to fast track therapies, and provides critical resources to patients and caregivers. ALS is relentless, and so are they. The question is no longer if we'll find a cure for ALS, but when. This is an underfunded disease and every little bit makes a difference. We will match donations to I AM ALS up to $5000 -- get started here on our Stimulus Donation Page. And for your daily dose of positivity, follow Brian on Twitter.   We Discuss: The First Receiver who is in a singularly unique position as it applies to a mass casualty [03:55]; The difference between a hospital's surge capacity and mass casualty preparedness [05:30]; What you might expect from EMS during a mass casualty as compared with a normal day [08:20]; The mindset of the medical provider after receiving a patient from EMS [10:32]; The value of a field triage score which is a simple way to stratify casualties [12:50];  How the success of a mass casualty event for the first receiver has to do with organization, throughput, and saving lives [16:15]; Lessons learned from the Christchurch, New Zealand mass shooter incident [29:45]; How your response to a mass casualty differs if you're unsure about the safety of your facility (as was the case in the 2020 Beirut explosion) [41:15]; One of the sayings of the Special Forces:  ‘All lessons are written in blood' [43:27]; The question Shertz thinks people should ask of their hospital disaster planners [45:45]; And more.   For complete and detailed show notes, previous episodes, or to sign up for our newsletter: https://www.stimuluspodcast.com/ If you like what you hear on Stimulus and use Apple/iTunes as your podcatcher, please consider leaving a review of the show.
