I found out that the cleaning was used by the military in the trainings. http://www.articlepool.info/webzine/article.php?id=171589 this article gave me some ideas on how the cleaning discipline can be helpful and i think it is used to boost the spirit. Is that true!
Awesome, best 2 hrs of story telling I've heard in a long time. THanks for helping me pass the time here cleaning up after the hurricane. Just got the power back on after 10 days and I'm glad I had this to listen to while I cleaned the wood and water outta the carpets.
And Amen, Dale hits it head on about the pussification of America. Young men need positive male role models that are more manly than what the msm tries to push on us. They neuter the testosterone out of society at a young age, and not in a positive way. Kids fight and make fun of each other. The problems start when the ppl being bullied can't defend themselves thru physical means, so the taunts and naem calling get worse. If they were allowed to fight fire with fire, the situation would defuse and everfyone would learn a good lesson.
Best part: advice to the young studs. Use the Army (or other service). It's damn sure going to use you.
You will wind up missing it. Even the parts that suck.
BTW, plenty of ex-officers wind up pumping gas and taking life advice from ex-enlisted. I did.
Anyway, when you're old and falling apart, the only qualification you need is having been there. We're not officers or enlisted -just old men. Mostly yapping about health matters these days.
Outstanding work on Comstock's part and yours.
Lol, how true referencing us old, falling apart Grunts! I know several retired Marines, I give them a lot of shit because none of them were combat Grunts! Love their Esprit! I put an Army sticker on my truck because Every Marine has his vehicle decorated with more Corps crap.
Comstock Rocks....great work!....6
Man! I gotta tell you, I had the utmost respect for Dale before I listened to either one of these interviews. (It took me two days to listen to the second one, on and off, as work has been busy) One thing about the SOF community that I'm noticing is that they all seem like regular guys. I don't mean that with any disrespect, because I know they are anything but "regular" They all just seem approachable, and down to earth, are smart and have killer work ethics. (literally! ha!) I got the same vibe when I tuned into Stars Earn Stripes as well. Dale has a super attitude..."One team, One fight" and you can tell he brings it to whatever he does. Sad to hear he had such a bad experience when he first got out of the military. Not all of us civilians are like that, sadly some or even most are I guess? Thanks Guys, for you military service and your hard work making this site what it is.
@usapatriotonthemove Whether you are an elite SF veteran or just a plain vanilla serviceman that adjustment to civilian life is traumatic, some don't survive it. DoD has gotten better at helping the guys prepare for End of Service, but it is a huge shock no matter what. It's a major issue, and one of the reasons the American legion and VFW are so beloved by veterans. Support comes from folks that have been through the same wringer!
@Old PH2 I do computer support for a pretty well known University on the East Coast. I've been trying to volunteer at a local organization that helps those, like you've described above, with training and guidance through that process, helping with everything from feeding them to temporary housing to computer training. (which is what I thought I could help with?) Sadly, I think the volunteer coordinators are volunteers as well, so I just keep falling through the cracks? You've definitely inspired me to give it another try. I'll let you know how it goes.
Great interview, or should I say just letting Dale talk. That guy is an archetype of the "been there, done that" SOF warrior.
Dalton Fury just tweeted a link to this article....ummm, Quin needs to start nagging him for an interview too :)
@Chairborne Commandos Radio @JackMurphyRGR I have absolute confidence in the persuasive abillities of you both :) And if that doesn't work, I think I'm going to have a considerable amount of left-over Halloween candy that I would be happy to contribute for the bribe. And btw - it would be his loss not to be interviewed :)
Great interview. What he said about Corporate America is very true, doing simple things right will set you apart light years from your colleagues (it's pretty sad). All and all I enjoyed this interview series and learned a lot about a great American.
show is great but the production is not so much... when one of you guys talk Dale is cut off and we miss parts of his response etc...
@fistsofgod For this interview @JackMurphyRGR was in NY. Dale was in South Eastern US. and @Chairborne Commandos Radio aka the "studio" was in SEATTLE. Recording in this type of environment is very, very different than everyone sitting down in a studio together in the same room.
If you know how to bridge these gaps and solve the problem contact me direct.
fucking awesome show. his a renaissance man. dale comstock the delta operator, green beret, bodybulder and phd.....sounds like something out of a novel.

@mrfrosty congrats Jack and Quin for a fantastic listen. I have nothing but respect for Dale. However I am with Mr Frosty on this one. The alt. med talk was a buzzkill. It's probably cuz I'm a PA, but it is pseudoscience. I agree 100% that people need major lifestyle changes and get off their meds. Although modern medicine isn't perfect, it is the best we have right now.
@mrfrosty I don't use 'alternative medicines, but just want to point out that most conventional medicines originated from or continue to come from natural ingredients. I think it's really a case of being informed on any medicine or drug one puts in their body. Some conventional medicines have proven to be very dangerous. An example is hormone replacement for women, which later was discovered to be a major cause of breast cancer. Some drugs given to pregnant woman caused major birth defects in their children. I think we are a 'pill happy' society lol
A 3 kilometer ambush?....At 5 mph?...........Ohhh the fun of a early morning drive through the countryside..........with tracers everywhere.......good times. During a situation like that I think petrified dog shit moves faster. :)
If anyone should write a book on the "Art of Manliness," it should be Dale. Great interview gentlemen and I do agree with Dale that our country is producing too many sedentary and detached children in our society who are lacking some testicular fortitude these days. Loved the Rambo comment as well. I'd like to thank you guys again, Jack, Quin, the SOFREP staff and Dale as well for the 2-part interview. Stay frosty my friends. :)
Dale is an American Bada$$. Thank you for your service from 82nd Airborne INF, to the Unit and to 3rd SFG (A). Look forward to your book.
Maybe Dale broke the inter web via his uber studly manliness? I hear Chuck Norris is thinking about shaving his head to look more like Dale.
