combat memoirs interviews/podcasts

what are some good interviews or podcasts where the guest extensively talks about his experiences in the armed forces? both about the training, the institution, and combat.

I'm a Gordon Ryan one with Tom Spooner who's a guy that's been in for 22 years, 10 years delta, and yet in a 4h long podcast he doesnt talk about his combat experiences but about his alcoholism recovery and sbit for the first 2h.

so could you give me some good ones? I watch them as war memoirs, so I dont care about them if it's just a therapy session.

    Unfortunately most of the former Delta who do podcasts tend to be bullshitters. So you won't hear many true war stories.

    Spooners podcast is excellent and if you've ever worked with or even just been around these men in any capacity you'd understand that.

    The Bloods of Nam

    "A high percentage of men on the frontlines in Vietnam were young, poor, undereducated, and black. By most accounts, they had the highest casualties. But these young men say they were fighting two wars-against the enemy and against discrimination. Correspondent Wallace Terry, the author of ‘Bloods,’ the national bestseller on which this film is based, talks with black veterans who fought discrimination in Vietnam and who later confronted disillusionment when they came home."

      Boo frickin hoo, darkies will always find a way to b***h about any situation they're in. The Army gave those coons the chance to improve themselves by earning respect from their peers, instead most jigs preferred to rape and pillage our southern allies and were nothing more than a PR nightmare. Then when the fricking spearchuckers get called out fro their homietry they decide to chimpout and "kill day whities" cause they couldn't handle the stress of fighitng a war were they had combat superiority at almost every stage of the war.

      In short, always ignore anything these double dipped liars say, even today they'll join solely to rob the tax payers of their hard earned dollars so they can buy their shitty walmart tvs and "peacefully protest" any time they're foreced to do any real work.

      >> source: Dumb fricking monkey bosen didn't want to go to sea so the fricker took a big gulp full of gasoline and splashed it on the fricking fire control panel on the USS San Juan resulting in our ship getting fricking stuck in port so we could fix the shit since all the systems got fried.

    Urban Valor
    "This week’s Urban Valor episode features retried Marine First Sergeant Randall Parkes. Randall grew up in Hemet, CA, and frequently moved due to his father's enlistment in the Navy. He served in the Infantry, Security Forces, First Reconnaissance Battalion, Marine Special Operations Command, and the drill field as a Drill Instructor. Randall talks about his deployment to Afghanistan with MARSOC, where the Taliban attempted to eliminate them by making it rain mortars. However, Randall and his team would make them pay for it. He talks about his love for being a green belt Drill Instructor and making his recruits earn their title. Lastly, Randall speaks on telling the Marine Corps monitor to kick rocks and his transition back into civilian life."

    I'm pretty sure it wasn't billed as a "My combat stories" podcast, it's about his life and journey surrounding his time in the military and especially the unit. If you can't find the value in this podcast I suggest you stick to watching the mindless action of the 'Fast and Furious' and 'Transformers' movie franchises and avoid movies like 'The Godfather', you'll just find it boring and full of a bunch of "talking".

    Once Upon a time in Iraq: Fallujah

    With this spring marking the 20-year anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, “Once Upon a Time in Iraq: Fallujah” tells the story of the battle to retake the key city of Fallujah from a violent insurgency that was taking root across Iraq after the U.S. ousted Saddam Hussein.

    In this documentary from filmmaker James Bluemel (“Once Upon a Time in Iraq,” “Exodus”), U.S. Marines, journalists and ordinary Iraqis share their experiences of what would become the bloodiest battle of the Iraq War, and how its consequences have reverberated for two decades.

    Video footage from a U.S. Apache helicopter in 2007 leaked by U.S. Army intelligence analyst and whistleblower Bradley Manning to Wikileaks. The video shows Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen, driver Saeed Chmagh, and several others as the Apache shoots and kills them in a public square in Eastern Baghdad after they are apparently assumed to be insurgents. After the initial shooting, an unarmed group of adults and children in a minivan arrives on the scene and attempts to transport the wounded. They are fired upon as well. The official statement on this incident initially listed all adults as insurgents and claimed the US military did not know how the deaths oc(c)urred.
