This week we cover John Woo's 'Windtalkers' the big budget MGM-backed blockbuster that famously flopped at the box office being panned by critics at the time of release in 2002. Starring Nic Cage and Christian Slater as USMC sergeants tasked with looking after Navajo Codetalkers played by Adam Beach and Roger Willie, during the battle of Saipan in 1944. Despite its huge scale and attention to detail, the film fails to successfully tell the story of the bravery and sacrifice of the Navajo Codetalkers. Join us as we attempt to unravel the missed opportunities of this failed epic. Follow us on Twitter @FightingOnFilm and on Facebook.

Today we hear the Combat Story of Joe McNamara, a former Marine Corps officer who experienced a unique kind of violence from his time on campus at Virginia Tech during the horrific 2007 shooting to leading Marines in combat in Afghanistan. After leaving the service, Joe founded a leadership development company called Impact USA that trained both elite athletes and private sector leaders. Impact was recently acquired by Mike Sarraille's Talent War Group, where Joe is now a partner and Chief Revenue Officer. Many will recall a fantastic interview with Mike (episode 70 https://youtu.be/v4TPJtkZrek), the former enlisted Marine who went on to Force Recon then served as an officer in SEALs and, eventually, Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU). The fact that someone like Mike who went through that crucible of leadership experiences went on to acquire Impact says a lot about what Joe does to develop leaders. This episode dives between combat experiences and the leadership lessons we can apply to our lives, from the foxhole to athletics to the office. In fact, Joe answers two questions I've always had: how do you create a sense of shared adversity in a corporate setting and how do you find time to train corporate leaders without taking them off operations for a full six to 12 months the way the military does it.I hope you enjoy this Combat Story with a battle hardened Marine Corps officer and some of the tangible leadership lessons we can all apply from his experiences as much as I did.Find Joe Online: - LinkedIN https://www.linkedin.com/in/mcnamara1/- Instagram @joe_mcnamara_ https://www.instagram.com/joe_mcnamara_- Impact Leadership https://www.impactthepace.com/ Find Ryan Online: - Ryan's Linktree https://linktr.ee/combatstory- Merch https://www.bonfire.com/store/combatstory/- Instagram @combatstory https://www.instagram.com/combatstory- Facebook @combatstoryofficial https://fb.me/combatstoryofficial- Send us messages at https://m.me/combatstoryofficial- Learn more about Ryan www.combatstory.com/aboutus- Intro Song: Sport Rock from Audio JungleShow Notes: 0:00 - Intro 0:35 - About our sponsor, Let's Get Checked 1:57 - Guest Introduction (Joe McNamara) 3:46 - Interview begins 5:13 - Childhood and path to the military 10:04 - Support for Combat Story brought to you by Manscaped 11:24 - Somber stories of courage and leadership from the school shooting at Virginia Tech 22:08 - When certain experiences harden you emotionally25:10 - The most impactful leadership advice from Marine Corps mentors 30:40 - Training and what it was like in Afghanistan with insane amount of IEDs 40:31 - Being in a leadership role at 20-21 years old and the most important attribute in leadership 44:12 - Combat Story - What it is like as infantry men when your vehicle gets hit by massive IED 53:47 - Combat Story - First time someone in his platoon was hit while on foot 1:00:24 - What an "XO" is in the military and what the role entails 1:04:24 - Combat Story - How leadership planning and drills show up after a mass casualty event1:14:29 - Formative Company Command time at Paris Island 1:24:55 - Where the idea for Impact Leadership came from 1:28:10 - Replicating shared adversity and military training in corporate sector1:36:03 - The biggest challenges seen in corporate leadership 1:39:55 - What did you carry into combat?1:40:39 - Would you do it again? 1:43:26 - Listener comments and shout outs

6ers, a https://www.callofdutyendowment.org/content/dam/atvi/callofduty/code/pdf/ZipCODE_Vet_Report_FINAL.pdf (recent study) showed that 59% of employers believe veterans perform "better than" or "much better than" their non-veteran peers. However, the connection gap in the hiring process of veterans remains high. Companies would tout they have ‘military-friendly' culture but how many of those companies are actually ‘military-effective'? This week, Tony Nash is joined by Rob Arndt, a former US Marine Corps, an investor, founder/CEO at https://www.buffersprings.com/ (BufferSprings), and a Veteran in Residence at https://bunkerlabs.org/ (Bunker Labs). He is passionate about building military veteran talent acquisition, engagement, and retention solutions that provide immediate and ongoing results for smart companies. Rob is self-educated and joined the USMC in logistics in 2002 until his retirement in 2014. You will learn about what companies to look for and what questions you can ask them in terms of being a “military-effective” organization that can empower you and give you confidence when applying for a job. You're a trained leader and team player, you're goal-oriented and can thrive under stressful environments and these are all skill advantages that employers look for. Knowing the advantages, benefits, and unique skills you can bring to an organization will help feel more empowered and confident, as a result, to find a job and a career path that can truly fulfill you. This valuable mindset calibration can bring help you find more career opportunities that will bring you closer to the true meaning of success. ----- 01:29 - BufferSpring's core mission as a vet-owned training and consulting firm 02:55 - Difference between military-friendly vs. military effective organization 05:17 - His transition journey from the military to exploring sales and marketing 09:07 - Career matching and not mere job placement for veterans 12:26 - BufferSpring's criteria for choosing employers 17:08 - Rob's struggles of feeling like a failure 19:10 - Being a student of the game you're chosen to play ----- Here is how to connect with Rob: https://www.linkedin.com/in/robarndt1/ (LinkedIn) https://twitter.com/Rob_Arndt (Twitter) https://www.buffersprings.com/home (BufferSprings) ----- Connect with Got Your Six podcast: https://www.thetonynash.com/podcast (Website) https://www.instagram.com/gotyour6pod/ (Instagram) https://discord.gg/KPPzmevp (Discord) https://www.linkedin.com/company/gotyour6pod/ (LinkedIn) https://twitter.com/gotyour6pod (Twitter) https://www.tiktok.com/@gotyour6pod?

One of the key moments that led him to the Marine Corps was the death of Pat Tillman, the legendary NFL Safety who walked away from the League and joined the Army after 9/11, eventually being killed while serving as a Ranger in Afghanistan. Jake found himself leading Marines at the very front end of the “Surge” in Iraq and the bloodiest year of the wars, stepping into a kinetic environment only weeks after arriving in the theater. He was then in Helmand Province in Afghanistan as a sniper.Only two months after leaving the Marine Corps, Jake went on to found the humanitarian support organization Team Rubicon after hastily organizing what he describes as a “Motley Crew” of veterans and doctors to help the people of Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake. He recently created another charitable giving business called Groundswell which seeks to democratize philanthropic giving.In 2018, Jake was awarded the Pat Tillman ESPY for service (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7Xef8StXi8), bringing his story full circle from Tillman's death that propelled Jake into this life of service.

Get 10% off your first month of therapy with my sponsor BetterHelp: http://BetterHelp.com/combatstoryToday we hear the Combat Story of Jason Lilley, a former Marine infantryman, Marine Recon, sniper, MARSOC, and then CIA Global Response Staff (or GRS) operator. As many are aware, Jason is the other half of the veteran media company Savage Actual (https://www.youtube.com/c/savageactual), with his co-host Patrick Moltrup having been a guest on our show on Episode 26 (https://youtu.be/YmOkCKtpvGk).Jason survived brutal fighting in the initial invasion of Iraq with the 1st Reconnaissance Battalion alongside journalist Evan Wright who would go on to write the book Generation Kill which was transformed into an HBO series by the same name, depicting some of the battles we talk about in this episode (watch more at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLlHcwJ5vS4).In another deployment, Jason earned a Silver Star during a battle on April 7th, 2004 in Iraq that was later depicted in the History Channel program “Ambush of April 7th” (https://www.history.com/shows/the-warfighters/season-1/episode-5#:~:text=On%20April%207%2C%202004%20a,in%20the%20War%20on%20Terror). It is believed to be the most decorations awarded for a single battle during the war, which included four Silver Stars, multiple Purple Hearts, and two Navy Crosses (one award posthumously). We didn't want to shortchange listeners on Jason's incredible stories so we'll schedule a round two to dive into his time with MARSOC and the CIA.

In this podcast, Rad features Master Sergeant John "Mad Dog" B. Melson, who served 3 years in the USMC and almost 17 years in the Army National Guard. After his service in the Marines and in the wake of 9/11, John tried to enlist again but found out that he had a tumor in his neck which was cutting off his blood flow. He was in extreme danger and was faced with a difficult decision: undergo surgery that could kill him or do nothing and have less than 5 years to live. He chose to have a fighting chance and went under the knife. Against the odds, he survived and was given the chance to serve again in the National Guard to fight in Afghanistan. He shares crazy stories of his 9 combat deployments, from popping smoke to signal the A-10 not to fire upon them in the middle of a firefight, to being left to fend for themselves during a Taliban assault. He is the recipient of 5 Bronze Star Medals, 2 Purple Hearts, and 4 Army Commendation Medals for Valor.
