    Dog Company The Boys of Pointe du Hoc

    in Military

    It is said that the right man in the right place at the right time can make the difference between victory and defeat. Dog Company: The Boys of Pointe du Hoc--the Rangers Who Accomplished D-Day's Toughest Mission and Led the Way across Europe, is the dramatic story of sixty-eight soldiers of the U.S. Army’s 2nd Ranger Battalion, D Company—Dog Company—who made that difference, time and again.   From D-Day, when German guns atop Pointe du Hoc threatened the Allied landings and the men of Dog Company scaled the ninety-foot cliffs to destroy them; to the thickly forested slopes of Hill 400, in Germany’s Hürtgen Forest, where the Rangers launched a desperate bayonet charge across an open field, captured the crucial hill, and held it against all odds. In each battle, the men of Dog Company made the difference.   Dog Company is their unforgettable story—thoroughly researched and vividly told by acclaimed combat historian Patrick K. O’Donnell—a story of extraordinary bravery, courage, and determination. America had many heroes in World War II, but few can say that, but for them, the course of the war may have been very different. The right men, in the right place, at the right time—Dog Company.   In this segment of “The Organic View”, host, June Stoyer will talk to Patrick O'Donnell who is a military historian and the award-winning author of seven books, including the bestseller and William E. Colby Award winner Beyond Valor, Give Me Tomorrow, and We Were One, the highly acclaimed account of the Battle of Fallujah.

    Our guest to discuss this and related issues for the full hour will be Lieutenant Colonel Kate Germano, USMC.


    Commissioned in August 1996, LtCol Germano has served for over 19 years on active duty in the United States Marine Corps.  A combat veteran, she additionally participated in numerous operational and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief deployments.  Ashore, her duties including a year as the Marine Aide to the Secretary of the Navy.

    The Hotwash With CJ Presents: Ranger Chris Bemiss & Army Veteran Amanda Eddie

    in Military

    Former 1/75 Ranger 01-07, 5 Combat deployments. Part of such missions as the Jessica Lynch POW rescue and recovery of her fellow Soldiers remains. Few know that Rangers dug with only their hands for hours to recover the remains of 8 Americans after Seal Team 6 had secured PFC Lynch in a Blackhawk. My 5th Combat tour, Jan 28th Mosul Iraq I was injured after being ejected from the turret of the Task Force Delta, Pandur I was a gunner on. Operator SFC Zaun was KIA, but only after he saved me and the others in the vehicle.  I turned to alcohol to cope and 7 May 05 I flipped my car. Ejected once again, this time breaking my neck permanently paralyzing me from the chest down and spending 19 months in the hospital. For 16 months I was unable to eat or drink due to a hole in my esophagus.  May 23 05 my girlfriend married me while still in the trauma unit.  I finally left the hospital Dec of 06 immediately turning to prescription drugs and alcohol to self-medicate. It destroyed my marriage and Jul 13 my wife and little boy left me forever. After divorce, I tried numerous times to overdose or find the courage to put one in myself. Thankfully a Ranger brother SFC Jay Granger pulled me up and got me motivated in helping other Vets. 4 weeks later Jay died on a civilian skydive. Jay's family was on the drop zone, his wife and three boys saw him hit the ground. I made up in my mind after Jay passed, I was going to fearlessly honor him and help Vets, making no excuses for myself and fighting like hell to stop the 22 a day that commit suicide. I now volunteer with Gallant Few helping Vets daily. I have also made a PTSD documentary with the All Warrior Network in Los Angeles that was released last Memorial Day. The film THE RANGER has thankfully helped to save many lives! I stopped living for myself years ago and the one and only reason I do live is to help all of my Warfighter brothers and sisters. It truly is an honor to do so! RLTW SINE PARI JAY STRON
