John talking using the guerilla tactics he used in Vietnam to shutdown the school for the strike was fucking awesome. This guy is a legend.

John Meyer & Lynne Black probably have wheelbarrows to carry their nutsacks around. When you leave a SEAL team member speechless telling war stories, you receive a diamond platinum man card.

Listen to the horseshit @ 42:27 " I drove all night and the next morning walked into the Pentagon with a bottle of wine and flowers and left with my orders " Comical. Follow the money rubes, this man sells books!

Tilt's laugh after JW recounts one of his harrowing missions is more a giggle reminiscent of some school kid remembering some prank on a teacher, speaks volumes of this man.

Been reading about John for 15 yrs now since I started gun fightin myself. He’s one of the men I aspired to fight like. And big respect to you jocko I’ve never heard anything but great honorable behavior from you in the field

Hard to believe 82 people gave a thumbs down to this podcast. It's their right to do so, however that right was provided by guys like "tilt". Remember freedom isn't free, its paid for in blood.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, get Billy Waugh on this podcast. The SOG guys talk about him with the utmost respect, and to think he made a whole life of doing this kind of stuff. And was in Afghanistan when that war kicked off is unreal….

Edit: to summarize

“Oh yeah”

I was a 20th SOS Green Hornet gunner 70'-72' and I want to thank Tilt for his lauding of our efforts. Always good to hear from a "Ground Studies" team member.

t sam , he said because he’s being sarcastic because they did not kill babies. That was all a lie from the mainstream establishment media and Hollyweird. My dad was there. They did not kill babies. They fought against the two largest communist global super powers in the world , China and Russia , oppressing, torturing, killing, trying to take over Korea Vietnam, and the world. American Vietnam vets are heroes. Welcome home, Heroes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.The Communists put children up to our guys and had the children say , do you want this lighter… Read more »

18:50 I think the word is agent or sleeper cell or you could call it green-on-blue. They lay dormant within the ranks until given the signal to attack or suddenly switch sides due to personal/cultural reasons.

Thank you sir, for giving us the opportunity to hear the stories of bravery and sacrifice that the men lived through during the Vietnam war. It strikes a special chord for me since my father Wilfredo Mercado Santos was K.I.A. On 04/11/1967 in the province of BING DINH. it helps me to understand what he lived through and fully appreciate the men who fought by his side. Too often civilians are oblivious to the horrors of war and forget too often those that have died to make their lives safe at home and abroad. I wish you all the best… Read more »
