Where bad choices make good stories
He is obviously a very sharp guy based on his resume alone. Search for some of his podcasts and others where he a guest to get more of a read on his legitimacy. I do think his concept of doing an "area study" before traveling is sound. Where we used to need a brief before going to locations overseas, we will now need to research before traveling inside the U.S. Good times.HazeGray
Glover is on the up and up. What he's offering is worth the time to make a email for.-BiblicalViolence
As a general practice, I don't join clubs. I only subscribed to hear him out. He makes some interesting points though.
Who the heck clicked on the Aw hell no box!?
Here's an interview of Mike Glover (retired SF) by Shawn Ryan (retired SEAL). The interview starts with some chat about Tennessee.Glover had a hell of a career in the Army, as you'll learn from the interview. It's long (>2hours). A good thing to have on in the background while working in the shop, or whatever activity where your ears are free.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBYC7QnHrQA
I think it's a good idea to join. We lack any type of organization or command and control should we ever decide to grow a pair. Any efforts towards organization is a plus.
I think his heart is in the right place, but a recurring theme with 'vets' is their belief in themselves as the great saviors (as that is what they are trained to believe).From the vid I didn't see much of a 'plan', mostly just a plea to be followed. Fact is what is coming is not something .mil has trained their soldiers for.
I don't think Vets (I'm one) think of themselves as saviors, but I do they are better prepared and trained to do what needs to be done, especially Combat Arms Vets (I'm not one) no matter how long ago they served. I mean, I don't know too many people that have never served that know what a fire team rush is, much less how to conduct one and that's something that's taught in Basic Training.As far as him having a plan, he's just getting this thing started. He laid out pretty clearly what he wants to do in the future - travel advisories, etc.And yes, thanks to the wars in the Middle East, over the past couple of decades the military HAS trained their soldiers for exactly what's coming - counter-insurgency. Special Ops soldiers have always trained for that sort of thing - just look at Special Forces in Vietnam.
I listened to what he had to say and it makes a lot of sense to me.JD
Im in as this makes sense. SEPA is already community preparing for a grid down situation. This fella probably has skills we could all use and there is so much more to learn on all levels. Anyone in south east PA is welcome to come to Ambler area for some face time 0930 Sunday. Fire up a group in your AO!! Im not listing my number but Mr. Lane has my email and I welcome contacts.R R
I see his blog has been shutdown
