First and foremost, we’d like to pay our respects to the five service members who died this past week at the hands of a radical Islamic terrorist in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Marine Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, Marine Lance Cpl. Skip Wells, Marine Sgt. Carson Holmquist, Marine Staff Sgt. David Wyatt, and Navy Petty Officer Randall Smith, you are not forgotten.

Nick Irving fills in this episode, and joining us on the show for the first time is a fellow Army Ranger sniper who he served with by the name of Paul Martinez. Paul is in the process of putting out a book through St. Martin’s Press. He tells us what it’s all about, and the guys tell us some absolutely mind-blowing war stories.

We get to your emails (submit your own at [email protected]), and to wrap up the show we bring on my good friend, former Army Apache mechanic TJ Bova to help us give out a double Throat Punch this week.
