Very basic question: why is higher ground better in a fire fight? is it just because you can see more when you are up hill (can't the other guy are you too)? or is it just easier to maneuver when you are up hill? Obviously I have zero training or experience.

'Combat in a frying pan' is Jocko's new steak sauce.

Count Dankula has an episode on Uday Hussein on YouTube which is a nice little aside to this episode. He wasn't really a very good person in some ways :-s

Jocko can say Dave Burke without echo saying "good deal dave." I know in my heart of hearts it's possible.

I really hope Jocko has "Warfighter" on. I think that's his name. The commander of the 101st when when they were in Ramadi.

It is difficult to describe the level and depth of gratitude I experienced as I listened to this episode. The stories that conveyed layers of individual responsibility, first, to ourselves, then, to our fellow human beings. I am in awe when I hear these moments. Almost like a portion of my soul is hungry for them. It makes me reflect on my time with my grandfather and think of his service on DDay at Utah beach, the Battle of the Bulge, or liberating Buchenwald. I feel that gratitude mix with regret and frustration. A soldier's struggle to share his experience is so valuable, so necessary. It isn't easy but what soldier signed up for easy. I guess I am selfish because I want to hear and I want to understand. I think we need to hear and we need to understand. I love this podcast because it sheds a light on the shadows of broken hearts and difficult experiences and creates growth for everyone. The leadership growth we are starving for.

This feels so applicable to the current political climate. Antifa feels like an insurgency according to this manual. Wow!
