Veterans day brought me back to this... this is such a raw insight.. i have no words.... not all veterans are WWll vets and old men. These men have also been through an unimaginable lifelike hell. I have the up most respect for you two and many others. I only wish that if my number is ever called for whatever the reason... I spring into action without hesitation and have half as much the bravery and clarity these men have. god fucking bless.

If somebody becomes a hero, it means that somebody (else) most likely has royally fucked up. If this was exactly as written in the book, then the guy really deserves the Medal of Honor, but the officer who denied fire support, deserves prison sentence (at least).

My father, the man to later on adopt me at the small age of 5 was in the Army and front and center in Vietnam. He told me this story a short time ago that validated to me that God does watch over our troops, a life event that brought me to tears. My Dads platoon had received orders that they would be joining their brothers on the front lines. That very day another platoon sent word that they were in need of a mechanic. My Dad having experience in that field was sent to that platoon that very day. The very next day his platoon, his brothers hit the front lines of Vietnam and every single one died. My heart poured tears the day my Dad told me this. As I watched him weep still for his fallen brothers I wept with him. God stepped in and saved my Dad that day but his guilt for being a survivor of war I assume haunts him. His brothers blood soaked the grounds in Vietnam and he was spared. I am truly blessed to have my Dad in my life. I have been given an amazing life because his life was spared. He has taught me from a young age the value of one soldiers life. May God continue to bless the loved ones of the fallen and the soldiers of war. May God recognize their sacrifice as I do this day and every day. My prayers are for them always.

We became the best country in the world by our leaders making decisions despite knowing it wasn't always the best or the right decision. This is disgusting to listen too and makes me have so much more respect for our soldiers. I already respect our soldiers like they are the reason I get to live this great life, but now it's more than that, and I can't explain it. Thank you guys. Your legends and heros no words can ever describe

It’s crazy because we’re once again in peace time and we don’t have a lot of combat Vets. None of my seniors were combat vets. Current LTs and and COs have no combat experience. And they seem oblivious to things like this caring more about things that are doctrine and playing a numbers game rather than focusing on tactics and real combat situations, and next time something pops off things like this will happen and many will die. It’s a shame it takes death to realize that this shit is real.

The segment @1:10:00 mark or so, is one that is insanely difficult to hear, as compared to just exceptionally difficult to hear everything else. While I certainly understand the problem with killing civilians, to let politics make decisions in spite of those far better equipped to do so, compounds the difficulty of our fighting forces. Not only can they not fight back, but the enemy is aware of this policy and use it against them :(

It hurts seeing problems with leadership being military wide and the things that are just annoying on the flightline end up getting people killed in combat.

If anything good happened that day, is that the Taliban and other insurgents learned, that the US military isn't reliant on its support and that their infantry should be respected. It also showed us the military the importance of decentralized command and the officer core and infantry that they can fight and hold there own against overwhelming odds without support. Unfortunately, that can't be done indefinitely with such a small amount of US forces on the ground.

That breath of silence I call “recount” you can look st a sunset a women anything but you will still project the nightmare like a movie screen eyes empty out breathing steadies hearing goes inside the brain drowns out the ambient noise around you and for however long it takes snap back your at its mercy. Ive been tapped n pushed so many times like hey man you here it’s like I went to sleep still awake I change my clothes frequently at night from sweat hate even sharing my bed I even warn of this or my night terrors not afraid to say I’ve called from my mother several times yelling for her in my sleep it’s natural we are all once children subconsciously she is your first person you yell for her in the dark like that and I’m 34yrsold..I’ve been embarrassed to women telling them ina, so sorry and they have all been solid as fuck and supportive and would hold me I’m not ashamed were human....Dakota I love U man I hope you sleep at night soundly when you get the gift to..jocko another seal badass lives w decisions every day as a commander sending some of his bros down range who stayed after closing...if you can’t comprehend this or haven’t been behind the sights of a smoking rifle in battle just please know your witnessing a cloth of man that is a breed countable by maybe fingers of a shrapnel shredded hand

Man........i was left speechless for quite a while after this podcast. However now that i have had some time to analyze and understand exactly what i just listened to i am heartbroken. Dakota is carrying soo much guilt and blames himself for his men not surviving. He often refers to how he failed his mission and that as soon as he hears someone say that he didnt or that it wasnt his fault he is done and doesnt listen to anything else that person has to say. This is something that he has to live with for the rest of his life and the truth is that he really did not fail. He was put in an unwinable situation and was essentially set up to be the fall guy for a massacre. He did not fail but HE WAS FAILED by every person above him that shut him down or did nothing when something needed to be done. He was failed by his command and anyone in the room when that guy pulled him from the mission and didnt speak up on his behalf. He was failed and let down by a slew of people above him and they sat back and let him blame himself and carry the burden that came with that. What a shame. He was put in a spot where he was either guaranteed to die or to fail miserably. There was soooo many things that took place that had even one of them been changed and been allowed to take place that could have possibly completely reversed the outcome. Instead many people died that day and they basically ensured that someone else would be at the bottom of the hill. God bless this man and those like him. And anyone who pays the ultimate sacrifice. And god help those in charge and those who have the ability to make decisions to be open minded and to see when they are wrong or when someone else has a better idea and give them the ability to admit when they have made a mistake and the humbleness to correct any mistake and to take the advice of someone below them.
