Hollywood (and all of the other movie centers in the world) has a nut for military stories. From movies such as All Quiet on the Western Front and Hell’s Angels to the new crop like The Green Zone and The Hurt Locker, we often see interpretations of what the men and women in the military go through when they are down-range. There are also movies like First Blood and Coming Home that show what may occur when these individuals return. But, how do these interpretations hold up to reality? In this podcast, we explore that and more with Sharon Cobb, ex-wife of Randal “Tex” Cobb who played Sailor in the movie Uncommon Valor. Take a listen and hear about Gar getting Tex drunk in Zagreb.
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.
