What’s going on, guys?! Hope everyone is doing well!
What follows are the source notes for this podcast. (I’ll talk about the show below.)
So, if you just happen to be stopping by on the internet, or you’ve arrived here from the Apple Podcast, you’ll find the source notes here on my substack.
On the other hand, if you’re on Apple Podcast or one of the other podcast apps, you’ll need to click the “episode website” button at the bottom to reach those notes. Otherwise, not all of them will show up, as tweets don’t appear in the text-only summary of the podcast apps.
And I apologize that I don’t have time to type up well-written, full episodes as I used to do. I’m still working a full-time job and squeezing in my research and recording the episodes as best I can. Maybe in the future I’ll be able to do full write ups, as well.
With that out of the way, welcome to the View from the Front!!
A podcast about military matters happening around the world, followed by some motivation at the end! Because who doesn’t need all the motivation they can get?! At least once or twice a week!
Every Tuesday and Friday, I discuss military and defense news, as well as some history, motivation, and wisdom. (And I do all of this from a moderate perspective.)
I am your host, and my name is Stan R. Mitchell. I’m a prior infantry Marine, who dropped the sword and picked up the pen. After spending ten years as a journalist, I became an author and have written eleven books to date!
We've been debating what the attack on the air base was for the past two podcast editions. (Long-range missiles or saboteurs, as The Washington Post claimed.)
This seems to be a VERY strong case for loitering ammunition, explained below.
Video of General McCaffrey saying that Russia is facing “a growing desperation” that the Ukrainians are fighting a deep battle using HIMARs, special operations, and partisan operations.
“I think the Russians are in trouble,” he said.
Motivation and wisdom:
