Jocko, did you go to basic in Orlando in 1990? I was a recruit company commander there. In my recruit division 5. We had the "Divefare Recruit Companies. Worked with the "CC's" of the divefare company. Just curious as it was a pleasure working with them.

Joyce was a bullet magnet. They eventually built hard structures to live in, but i give props to anyone who did a full stretch in that fish bowl sleeping in a tent every night. Rc east had a lot of fobs and cops that would just get continuous fireworks but joyce always seemed the worst to me(outside of fb's/op's.) They would get hammered so much and eventually they built it up w t barriers and hard structures but in the early days your protection against rockets and small arms in the middle of the nights was luck and a puckered butthole until you could get some fire going bac k up the mountain.

A 21 year old Corporal showed more leadership and loyalty that day than any sergeant major, flag officer, or general officer at FOB Joyce.

My father went into the Marine Corps in 1979, where he served with 2/9 , 2/5 and Training Facilities Platoon on Camp Pendleton. After his separation from the Marine Corps. He worked as a correctional officer for the State of Texas and later a Jail Attendant for the Houston Police Department. He retired from the Harris County Sheriff's Office with over 33 years of service. When he heard what you experienced in Afghanistan it brought him to tears. God bless you and thank you for your service.

Meyer is from the next county over from where I live in Central KY. Hell, I was born in the hospital in his hometown. When I learned a KY boy from my neck of the woods was getting the Medal of Honor AND he was a Marine like me I was super pumped. However, watching the ceremony I wondered why he had such a somber look on his face. The President of the mfn United States is putting the mfn Medal of Honor around his neck. I always thought what an honor that would be yet Meyer had that look on his face. I didn't understand. After listening to this podcast, now I know why...and I'm embarrassed to admit the humility I have about my bewilderment. Semper Fi Marine. Semper fuckin Fi.

If you feel like getting pissed off enough to frag an officer or two, this is the video for you.
Rich Vuchetich (3 months ago)
Your Command failed, Dakota, not you. I understand the thought of "we own everything we are involved in." That is the only way you can think, that is the only attitude you can have to be successful in our lives and in a fight, I get it, but that mission was BS from the start. You were given orders to walk into a suicide. Think about that, brother. Semper Fi.
Rich Vuchetich (3 months ago)
Dakota, you are a fkng hero, brother. Semper Fi. I have not heard a more disgusting story in my life. This is what happens when you have a weak command that cares more about the politics and covering their asses than the lives of the Marines. I know they will never say it, but I would like to hear a real leader like Jocko, has to say what he thinks about that situation.
Lane (3 months ago)
Excellent podcast. You can see the pain in his eyes, but he fights through it. Semper Fi, Brother!

I know that he feels he failed, and that is human nature, but he far from failed. Some things just can't be done, and he gave way over 100% to try to save them. I salute you brother.

This is awesome!!!
Trever Breedlove (3 months ago)
You can feel the intensity by the way Dakota repeats himself, and the disgust that jocko feels by the constant sighs and "alright". These are two great men

I stopped by to watch a few minutes, and I've been here 3 hours. Wow.

The part where he mentions that they stopped all support after learning they were Marines threw me off. I'm pretty confused about that.

I had the very fortunate spontaneous opportunity to meet Dakota in the Charlotte NC airport a few years ago. I had just finished his book and watched several interviews of him, specifically on 60 Mins. I was standing in the ticketing line for AA and heard a voice behind me and instantly recognized it, it was Dakota. I whipped around and jumped around the person behind me and shook his hand and told him 'Thank You Dakota'!! He was 100% NORMAL, a good guy. Took the time to talk with me. I have never served but my Dad was a Marine in Vietnam and Dakota wanted to learn about him. Very cool!!! Dakota is a real Man, a True American! In my opinion he deserved the Medal of Honor and more if it was possible. Look what he had to deal with bc of McCrystal and our Communist former leader Obama!!!

Thank you Dakota, Echo, and Jocko. You gave the subject, frustration and humanity with the kind of quiet respect it deserves. Doc.
Toxic Porcupine (5 months ago)
Holy shit that was a deep podcast. No doubt Dakota is one of those special warriors. You can tell this day still haunts him and I can't even imagine how gut wrenching it was to hear Jocko walk him through it again. Bravo to both you hero's in your service and for talking through this for the rest of us to get a small taste of what these hero's did and went through.

You are a fantastic writer. That was just amazing. You are obviously a scientist, and artist. The black and white photography and sound is excellent. Respectfully, London.

If this young man DOES"NT suffer from ptsd...........there's no such thing?!!! True American HERO
Brian Leo (3 months ago)
Hey Paul, sadly Dakota did suffer from PTSD after returning to the states. He mentions it in detail in his book "Into the Fire". It is a great read and goes into detail the war experiences and life experiences he has gone through and conquered before and after his time in the military.
Aren V (5 months ago)
Even jocko is having a rough time reading this book . Wow this intense . Hats off to this marine
PJ Yost (5 months ago)
This brings it all back. What a total clusterfuck the Marine Corps can be. If you want to see a film depiction of how this garbage happens war after war, watch Generation Kill. Only Staff NCO's with the batteries to run their NOD's when they dont need them, dipshit Officers calling in arty without even knowing what "Danger Close" even means just to get themselves a medal. Officers who cant read a map getting an entire vehicle-mounted platoon lost. It was semi-fiction in that show, but this story here tells you how real it can be.
Trevor Clarke (5 months ago)
Wow, this is the definition of a powerful podcast. Thank you
Best fucking podcast ever. I wish jocko would read his entire book for us to download.

I've watched my friends' 17/18 yo boney/small sons leave for Marines and the next time I see them they are full grown men....mentally as well as physically. It's the most amazing transformation I've ever observed. Thanks so much for all service of military...past, present, and future! I'm so very thankful!!!

Spats are also used to cover the foot and leg for people who pour metal. Semper FI.. great show guys.
Knucklehead (7 months ago)
That was intense. For just sitting and listening to the story of a battle unfolding it doesn't get any more intense (even though there are a thousand untold stories just as intense.) If your palms weren't sweating a little and your adrenaline wasn't amped up, you probably aren't human. God Bless all who serve.

As someone who drives a desk for a living, I can't tell you how much respect I have for people like yourselves, Dakota and Jocko. Just bought the book (through your amazon link) and the Psychological Warfare album to support the efforts. Keep it up - from a admiring Canadian.

Jocko must have been awesome to serve with, just listening to him speak makes you more confident. Also they need to get Jocko reading war books on audible.

When Joko is reviewing the US motor team response to the Polar request.. And the long list of questions, is Obama policy. Lift the restrictions

Wow must of been so frustrating for Dakota knowing this was lining up and those in command were ignorant.

Can anyone explain why this video only has 66k in views? Best content online. Jocko, I'm telling everyone I can about your podcast. Might come down to SD and roll sometime. Keep at it brother!

What happened to the RPG that Meyer launched at his Afghan captor who was pointing an AK-47 at his face? He said the grenade hit the guy in his chest armor and bounced off. So, why didn't it explode and kill them while they were on the sand wrestling?

paul sawford (9 months ago)
One of the most powerful dialogues I have ever heard. Joko's reading of Mr Meyers experiences adds to the reality of it all. Why? Because you can feel how Joko is re-living his own experiences there and then. I didn't expect to listen to the whole podcast, but I was glued. Mr Meyers code, honour and integrity is laid bare in this podcast. I can do nothing but admire people like this and hope he can instill in others this creed of his.
