    Ep 3: Miles Vining

    Ep 3: Miles Vining

    Miles Vining is a jack-of-all trades who enlisted into the Marines and served with The Walking Dead in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. His book, Into Helmand with the Walking Dead is a must read for anyone seeking the ground-level experience of a Marine in Afghanistan. You can read an excerpt from Leatherneck Magazine here.







    Serving in Afghanistan has instilled a deep connection to the region, which Miles continues to explore in his project “Silah Report” (Pronouced seh-lah, not sye-law …Nick) which explores the weapons and defense industries of the Middle East, past and present. Miles also supports the Free Burma Rangers, a humanitarian service focused on the war-torn regions of Burma, Iraq and Sudan.







    Nick and Vic also welcome in William Treuting, a Gazette editor, historian, and all-around smart guy and we touch on Bill Lind and the birth of the Maneuver Warfare movement.

    SgtMaj Justin LeHew Part 1

    SgtMaj Justin LeHew Part 1

    We had the great honor of hosting SgtMaj Justin LeHew, USMC (Ret) for our first ever interview and it was everything we’d hoped for and more. There is a lot to admire about the character and career of the SgtMaj, but as a fellow amtracker, Vic’s excitement was notched all the way to 11. In this first half of our interview SgtMaj LeHew spoke to us about the advice he received throughout his career and how he was able to lock it away until it was time to use it, his book collection, professional reputation vs expectation, what makes Marines fight harder, and so much more.







    Nick and Vic also talk a little bit about the recent pullout of Afghanistan, Marines in Haiti and the F-35.

    Scuttlebutt Episode 0: Introduction

    Scuttlebutt Episode 0: Introduction

    Scuttlebutt is a podcast for Marines by Marines. We will be exploring the unseen stories of Marines, past and present. These unseen stories are the foundation of the storied history of the Marine Corps, as well as it’s yet unwritten future. We will be having some great conversations with some really awesome guests, discussing issues focusing on the power (and significance) of storytelling, professional development, and transitioning. Whether its transitioning jobs, transitioning locations or transitioning out of the Marine Corps, life tends to be a succession of transitions. How we approach professional development is a facet of how well we transition. And ultimately, tell our story. Our stories are what makes the Marine Corps great. For us, for our families and for the country. Stories matter.
