    21 Gun: Marine Officer Donny O'Malley - Creator Vet TV and Irreverent Warriors

    Donny O'Malley is an actor, writer and of course is the creator of Veterans Entertainment Television - an online streaming service by veterans for veterans. He is the founder of Irreverent Warriors an organization bringing veterans together for silkies hikes with 22 kilos of gear for 22 kilometers in an effort to curb veteran suicide. Donny joins me today to talk about the disconnect between real veterans and service members and the public's perception. Does this disconnect lead to veteran suicide? What can we do to help drop this number down and how is humor, laughter, and camaraderie the best medicine we know!

    21 Gun: Marine Veteran Dan Maillard & the Irreverent Warriors Silkies/Ranger Pantie Hike

    21 Gun: Marine Veteran Dan Maillard & the Irreverent Warriors Silkies/Ranger Pantie Hike

    Dan Maillard is a former Marine who joined the service straight out of High School. He served as Marine One Crew Chief on the VH60N at HMX-1. For all those who don't know - that's the president's helicopter and the crew chief is responsible to keep it flying. He then transitioned from the Marine Corps to the Secret Service Uniform Division as a Police Office, worked with the FBI on Counterterrorism. Dan comes on to the show today to talk about Irreverent Warriors, an organization whose mission is to bring veterans together using humor and camaraderie to improve mental health and prevent veteran suicide. They organize "Silkies Hikes" where veterans wear their trademark training "short-shorts" while carrying 22-kilogram packs and hiking for 22 kilometers. It's a tremendously successful organization and I will be participating on June 15th's Silkies Hike in Fayetteville, NC.

    Big Announcement... The Future of the WWI Podcast. Where do we go from here?

    Big Announcement... The Future of the WWI Podcast. Where do we go from here?

    So, if you've been a fan of the show for any amount of time, you probably noticed that the most recent episodes have been a little different from the "classic" episode format. I'm aware of this and have been trying to figure out the future of the program. I was on the verge of discontinuing the podcast altogether! Luckily, I made a trip to Bourbiz, a veteran entrepreneur networking group and I found my answer. It is good news and the WWI Podcast isn't going anywhere! There will be some changes but they will only improve my content and make for better programming! Thanks for listening and please head over to www.waitwhatif.com for everything WWI!

    I think I figured out AOC; Gun ownership; Your odds of dying in a given year!

    I think I figured out AOC; Gun ownership; Your odds of dying in a given year!

    S4E2:


    I start the show explaining my epiphany on the deal with AOC. I could figure her out for the longest time and then it hit me: she's an adult teenager!


    This transitions into the Assault Weapons Ban 2019 and why I personally own firearms. What is the meaning of carrying a weapon? What are your odds of actually needing one? Could the real problem be swimming pools?


    Finally, with all the talk about your odds of dying via guns, I delve into the odds of dying in any given year and how some people face certain death boldly.


    Grim topics, I know but they make for interesting discussion. 


    Enjoy

Great Quality Podcast

First off, Kevin is a great host. He has a voice that I could listen to for hours. Next, they have great content! The content on this show can vary, but I always find it interesting. If you enjoy podcasts like Joe Rogan and interviews with fascinating people, this is a great pod for you!
