  1. Just found this podcast and listened to this episode today, already hooked! Your confidence and determination are infectious just by listening to your voice. Got out and went on my first run in a while, thank you for sharing these memories with me.

  2. Hello Jocko,

    Thank you for this podcast, “What to carry to be prepared”. I appreciate every word & thought. America NEEDS to know what you & others are doing & sacrificing for our freedom, comfort, luxury peace. I appreciate everything.

    This comes from my perspective of life wherein I’ve never served. BUT I graduated high school during the height of Vietnam. I saw my classmates who were drafted & came home in a coffin. I attended everyone of their funerals. I watched their Mothers clutching that folded American flag a honor guard Sergeant had placed in their hands.

    I got a high draft number & didn’t have to go. BUT I’ve thought of my classmates who never got to enjoy all the phases of life which I’ve been blessed to enjoy.
    I thank you & others who’ve made it possible for my children & grandchildren to not know the sounds of combat in their neighborhoods.

    Thank you,

    Danny Eason
