We welcome Ted Harding back to the show. Ted was a guest back in May 2010 right before he left for Fort Benning for Army boot camp. He has now graduated and is a Spc 4 11C (Specialist 4/E-4 Mortar Man) with the 82nd Airborne at Fort Bragg, NC. We ask him about recruit training, jump school, and what its like to be out in the Regular Army. Some explicit language—as always. Hey—when you’re chatting with Marines, ya just gotta accept it!
In the first episode of “Stand At Ease,” Jim, Gar, and David introduce themselves and how they came to know each other, discuss the mission of the show, and where their responsibilities lie. Keeping on track with that idea, they explore the different spheres of responsibility the active duty service member and veteran are beholden to and how our training helps us face them – as well as what happens when we forget what we’re trained to do.
Also introduced in this show are a few of the many services available to Veterans and their families, topics which will be expanded upon in future shows. Finally, there is an open invitation to others to participate in future “Stand At Ease” podcasts.
We are sorry but because of the the number of SPAM-BOTS that troll the web we have decided to deactivate this feature. However, we have placed a link on all of our pages that will give you a chance to give us feedback.
Thank you for visiting Stand at Ease. This web site is still under construction, however, our goal is to make this a place where veterans, and the family members who support veteran can create a community of others like you. We encourage you to join us in this effort.
