Stolen Valor Exposed The Truth Behind Walter Mitty

My most heroic guest to date helps me explore the truth behind veteran impersonation aka Water Mitty or Stolen Valor (valour – UK spelling)

Transcript snippet from ‘Stolen Valor Exposed | The Truth Behind Walter Mitty’ podcast

Chris and Ben

C – Ben, how are you brother?

B – I’m doing good how are you?

C – Running out of clever replies, that probably aren’t really that clever.

B – When someone asks me this at work or whatever my usual reply when someone asks me how are you? I answer loving life. No matter what type of day it is, it’s positive affirmation. Sometimes good is just as sufficient, but I think if you say that enough times it gets contagious and other people start to say it whether they mean it or not.

C – I don’t mean to be rude to my guests but they’ve got to sort out the way they fricking speak man. All this “I’m good”. This is England, we’re British and we’re very proud about that. We’re not nationalistic but we’re proud not to have to copy other countries. People can speak how they want, of course they can but I do think though. I think people who are easily swayed with their language just start saying what other people say. You know like this ‘passed’ thing instead of died. They use ‘passed’. I personally think there’s a lot to dissect there…

Chris and Aaron

C – Aaron, how are you brother?

A – I’m good how are you?

C – Yeah, really well thank you? Which part of the States are you in?

A – I’m up in Virginia on the Eastern shore.

C – Okay, Norfolk is in Virginia right?

A – It’s about a three hour drive South from D.C.

C – Yeah I was in Virginia when I was in the marines I was on an aircraft carrier for a year, and we stopped in Virginia and we hired a car and drove up to Washington. That was a hell of a trip.

A – I bet, especially on the shoot up.

C – So Aaron, I think I should point out you’re are the first Navy Seal we’ve had on the show. We’ve heard a lot of SAS and some SBS guys from this side of the pond, but from the Atlantic side of America you’re the first Navy Seal. So thank you and congratulations…

Arctic Warfare Training AWT | Royal Marines Commando Unit

Ever wondered what it is like to fight in the Norwegian Arctic, carrying an eighty pound bergen on a pair of skis, jumping into ice-cold water and sleeping in a snowcave? In this podcast I talk about my arctic warfare training in Norway (AWT) in the first year of a Royal Marines Commando Unit.

Transcript snippet from ‘Arctic Warfare Training AWT’ podcast

Chris

C – Hello friends, I hope this finds you well. Welcome back to another in my what’s the royal marines really like series. I’ve been really looking forward to doing this for quite some time now, because I’m going to talk about Norway, which looking back at least was an experience I was so glad I went through, if maybe I wasn’t so happy at the time for reasons I’ll explain. So Norway is where the Royal Marines do their Arctic Warfare training. I first sort of came across the Norway experience as opposed to just hearing about it when I was on rear party at 42 Commando. So I left for training in February, bitterly cold when we did our commando tests and I went to 42 Commando which is at Bickley, just outside Plymouth, and I was on something called rear party which is basically guard duty. The reason being the whole unit were away on winter deployment or exercise and this was of course in Norway where 42 and 45 commando go every year, at least that’s how it was when I served…
