    GRP 150-EDGE: On the Front Lines of the Rhino War in Africa

    GRP 150-EDGE: On the Front Lines of the Rhino War in Africa

    My guest for this podcast is Nathan Edmondson, the co-founder and President of EDGE. Eco Defense Group (EDGE) plays a pivotal role in the counter-poaching Rhino war in Africa. Utilizing the skill sets of American Tier 1 Operators, they train and develop counter-poacher and Ranger units combatting poaching and illegal wildlife trafficking in coordination with the office of defense cooperation through the consulate general and other official channels in Africa.

    The market for rhino horns in Southeast Asia drives criminal syndicates to increase their efforts in illegally killing rhinos. EDGE brings resources and opportunities to communities that are working to counter poaching. They are a 501c3 non-profit organization. We discussed the crime of poaching, what EDGE brings to the fight, and more. Enjoy.

    GRP 149-Medal of Honor Recipient Staff Sergeant Ronald J. Shurer

    GRP 149-My guest for this podcast is Medal of Honor recipient Staff Sergeant Ronald Shurer. Ron passed away due to complications from Lung Cancer on May 14th, 2020. He was 41 years old. I want to extend my condolences to his wife, Miranda, his two boys, my buddy Ryan, his teammates, and co-workers from the Secret Service.

    Ron deployed twice to Afghanistan as a Medic in the 3rd Special Forces Group with ODA 3336. During his second deployment, while conducting an operation in the Shok Valley, Ron and his teammate Special Forces Weapons Sergeant Matthew O. Williams were both awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for their actions during combat.
    We discussed the Battle of Shok Valley in detail. Ron, would eventually separate from the Army and join the Secret Service, where he served for a decade. Ron was a special person. I enjoyed recording this show with him. We intended to sit down and record a second show at the studios here in Manhattan once COVID was contained. Rest in peace, brother.

    GRP 148-The MARSOC 3: The story of three Raiders and their struggle with the military justice system

    GRP 148-The MARSOC 3: The story of three Raiders and their struggle with the military justice system

    Joining me for this week’s podcast is a retired Marine Special Operations Task Force Commander Fred Galvin, and Army veteran, gold star wife, and current spouse to a MARSOC Raider Destiny Draher. On January 1st, 2019 Gunnery Sgt. Joshua Negron, Gunnery Sgt. Daniel Draher and Chief Petty Officer Eric Gilmet were assaulted by a drunk former Green Beret working as a civilian contractor in Erbil, Iraq during a night out.

    One of the Marines threw a punch back knocking the contractor out. The entire incident is caught on camera.  The Marines took the contractor with them back to base while Eric Gilmet who is a Special Operations Independent Duty Corpsman treated him.

    He ended up choking on his  vomit and unfortunately died four days later. The commanding General of MARSOC has completely alienated these Marines and they are not getting a fair shot at justice.

    We discuss in full detail how the command isn’t concerned with finding out the truth and has already made up their minds about the case. Our three MARSOC Warriors need your support! Please contact your representatives and make them aware of this case.

    Unsure of what to say? Here is a template that you can use to email or when you call your representatives.

    Dear Representative,

    As your constituent, I am requesting that you reach out to Congressmen Louie Gohmert’s office and the Justice For Warriors Caucus and support MARSOC warriors Danny Draher, Josh Negron, and Eric Gilmet.

    These three MARSOC warriors have been wrongfully accused of “Manslaughter” and the Congressional Justice for Warriors Caucus is stepping in to stop this injustice. Please have your military staffer reach out to Congressmen Gohmert’s military staffer and act now to save these military hero’s.

    Sincerely, [name]
