    Episode 519: Navy SEAL, Delta Force Command Surgeon, and author Bob Adams is back!

    We had such a good time interviewing Bob Adams last week that host Brandon Webb had him back on for more.
    Bob Adams began his military career at the U.S. Naval Academy as a 5th generation career officer. After serving as Navigator and First Lieutenant on the USS Hamner (DD-718) he followed his dream to Navy SEAL training where he graduated as class leader. He served 14 years in the Navy – 12 in the SEAL Teams, active and reserve, and was a Navy Commander when he changed services to attend medical school on an Army scholarship to Wake Forest University Medical School.
    As an Army physician, he commanded various clinics providing full-service inpatient and outpatient obstetric, pediatric, medical, surgical and gynecologic services to a diverse population, with ages from birth to elderly geriatric patients, for both military and civilian institutions. He was honored to serve four years as the Command Surgeon for the US Army DELTA Force providing rapid deployment special forces combat medical services worldwide.
    He is the author of Six Days of Impossible Navy SEAL Hell Week, a Doctor Looks Back.

Up and downs, like the international perspective

This podcast used to be good years ago and then hid it behind paywall and then got too kinda military bro and left behind interesting stories and analysis and on current ops and news. Now it’s gotten better big Phil is great and love the international stuff. There is enough out there on American military, will Big Phil it gets more well rounded.
More stories, honest operations/international news analysis and less opinion

How to hear REAL HEROES & LEGENDS (not millionaire athletes/actors/singers)

Love the podcast as these beyond words brave men describe the missions they served on while giving the humanity of their experiences impact on their soul and what they endured (which a lot of millennials who grew up on call of duty video game cannot comprehend) through being heroic and protecting OUR freedoms

Don’t talk over your guests

Trying to listen to an interview and it’s constantly filled with the host talking over the guest and flat out interrupting and not letting the guest finish his story / point.
