Defending the Republic with Annie "The Radio Chick", Kel Fritzi and Dan Butcher is an ongoing discussion of recent events.
Special Guest: Manny Vega, USMC Retired, Former Infantry Scout at Marines, 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion. Manny made the news when he refused to take down the American and USMC flags from his home and faced eviction. He also was at the WWII Memorial in Washington, DC helping to tear down the barricades the Obama Administration erected, blaming sequestration. In counter protest to the Pro-Palestinian Rally outside the White House, he faced down physical assault upon his person while showing brave support for Israel. He has been a rock of support for Jill Tahmooressi, whose son remained jailed in a Mexico prison, while the Obama Administration twiddles their thumbs. https://www.facebook.com/manuel.e.vega
Supporters of the Tahmooressi family have created an official fundraising site to collect donations to offset the cost of his legal defense. To donate, visit AndrewFreedomFund.com. Contributions and letters can also be mailed to: Andrew Tahmooressi Liberty Fund, 5722 S. Flamingo Road #114, Cooper City FL 33330-3206M

With the new defense budget out, new QDR out, the withdraw of maneuver forces from Afghanistan, rising interest in INDO-PAC operations, and a resurgent Russia: after over a decade of COIN and land wars in Southwest and Central Asia - what is the status of the United States Marine Corps?

Believe it or not, this week is our 250th Episode of Midrats.
In celebration, we're clearing the intellectual table, going to open the mic and see where it takes us.
From Kobane, to Coastal Defense, to Ebola and everything in between and sideways that's been in the national security news as of late, plus whatever else breaks above the ambient noise - we'll be covering it.
As with all Midrats Free For Alls, we are also opening the phone lines for our regular listeners who want to throw a topic our way.
Come join us Sunday as we try to figure out how we got to 250.
Best known for his role in the 1976 cult classic "Breaking Point," Bo Svenson is now utilizing his talents on the other side of the camera as the director of "Don't Call Me Sir!" a biopic of the life and career of groundbreaking judo legend Rusty Kanokogi, starring the 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist in Judo Kayla Harrison and we would love to set up an interview with you to discuss this inspiring film!
Born in Sweden, Svenson's acting career began after moving stateside and joining the USMC. Honorably discharged after six years of service, he soon secured the role of lumberjack 'Olaf Gustaven' in the hit TV series "Here Come the Brides," and cult classic hit "The Inglourious Bastards."
Film roles include his role as 'Reverend Harmony' in Quentin Tarantino's action-thriller "Kill Bill Vol. II", as well as a cameo in Tarantino's 2009 film "Inglourious Basterds" as a tribute to his previous role. In addition, he has appeared in nearly 60 films during his long career, including two of the "Walking Tall" films as Sheriff Buford Pusser; North Dallas Forty, Heartbreak Ridge, Speed 2: Cruise Control, and others.
Besides his acting and directing work, Svenson is an avid martial artist, holding black belts in judo, karate, and aikido. During his martial arts career, he won the 1961 U.S. Armed Forces Far East Judo Championship's Heavyweight division. His involvement in martial arts has earned him a spot in the Martial Arts Masters Hall of Fame, an honor bestowed upon him in 2009.
A best of this weekend from last year when now Deputy Secretary of Defense Bob Work was between jobs.
When one hangs up the uniform after decades of service, but still wants to contribute to their nations national security needs, what paths can that take and what are the keys to success?
In a budgetary challenge not seen by the US military in two decades, what are the important "must haves" that need to be kept at full strength, and what "nice to haves" may have to be put in to the side?
What are the legacy ideas, concepts, and capabilities that the Navy and Marine Corps need to make sure they maintain mastery of, and what new things are either here or are soon on the way that we need to set conditions for success now?
Our guest for the full hour to discuss this and more will be Robert O. Work, Col. USMC (Ret), presently CEO of the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), and former Undersecretary of the Navy from 2009-2013.
After 27-years of active duty service in the Marine Corps, Work joined the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA), where he focused on defense strategy and programs, revolutions in war, Department of Defense transformation, and maritime affairs. He also contributed to Department of Defense studies on global basing and emerging military missions; and provided support for the 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review.
During this time, Work was also an adjunct professor at George Washington University, where he taught defense analysis and roles and missions of the armed forces.
In late 2008, Work served on President Barack Obama’s Department of Defense Transition Team.
He earned his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Illinois; and has Masters Degrees from the University of Southern California, the Naval Postgraduate School; and Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.

We're sorry to report that we will be giving up Semper Fiesty Radio for the mostpart. It's a lot of work booking guests and getting the show on the air; Kristine is uber busy with USMC Life and Jackie will be moving to Korea this summer, so we are calling it a day with the show. However, we may occasionally do a show in the future, but nothing on a regular basis. Thank you for supporting our radio show and podcast; we've loved every minute of it.
We're looking forward to some big laughs with Former U.S. Marine, Police Officer and Firefighter turned National Headlining Comedian, Travis Howze protected America's citizens for over 14 years, and now he's making fun of them! Whether dodging bullets, chasing bad guys or running into burning buildings he is always Funny Under Fire!
Having appeared on NBC's Night Shift with Kevin Ferguson, Travis has also been Voted, Stand Up Comedy's Mouth of the South and Charleston, South Carolinas Funniest Person. He has also been referred to as The Military and Emergency Services Voice of Comedy.
In addition to making fun of the general public he includes his own humility from being a Ludicrous Police Officer, being diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Military, Family, Married Life and more. In Travis's mind, his days of protecting are neither over, leaving no one safe nor anything off limits! His motto is simple "If you are able to laugh at someone else's pain and misfortunes, then you had better be able to laugh at your own!" Connect with Travis on Facebook or website.
Next we're bringing a guest caller to play "Name that Travis" on the show, followed by a game to see if Jackie and Kristine can guess the incorrect acronym.
