ATS MIX:

Show 35 – LIVE From IRAQ With ADVISOR – ATS MOD SQUAD


The ATS MIX Team finally connects with one of AboveTopSecret.Com’s own MOD SQUAD TROOPS who is serving somewhere in IRAQ. With the time difference between Dave and Johnny, it was almost 0200 hrs. (2 a.m.) the following day when this show was done. Unlike the previous Mod Squad shows, Dave and Johnny get into the personal side of being in harm’s way in IRAQ and ask about the ups, downs, friendships, laughter and tragedies. It is as up close and personal as Dave and Johnny have ever gone. Once you have listened to the show, please come back to this show thread on AboveTopSecret.Com and ask questions or make comments as ADVISOR will be responding personally as his war zone commitments and time allows.

Fantastic show.


I do have a question: has there been a time while deployed that you truly feared for your life, as in I'm not sure that I am getting out of this one? What did it involve?
I listened to the stories of mortar's and suicide bombers but I didn't hear you mention that you were fearful of your own safety. If you did, I aplogize. It was late while I was listening.

My own safety was the last thing I was ever thinking about. For me the priority was the man to my left and right, or even front and rear. Safety is a big issue and it is always stressed, but when it comes time to do our jobs, it's all reactionary.

Thinking just seems to go out the window, and stuff just happens the way we trained for it. Not to say no one has never locked up and froze, but personally, it hasn't bothered me being in some "high intensity" situations.

Maybe I'm more well suited than others, but so far no, I havn't been fearful for my own safety. In fact, the buddy I mentioned, when that happened I wasn't out there with them. That bothered me more than anything else, because I wasn't there, I could do nothing, and it sucked just listening to every thing over the net/radio. That is the worst feeling.

ADVISOR thank you for a great interview (I'm still listening to it).

How do you feel about those in your own country - and mine - who disagree with the Iraq War and who think you guys shouldn't be there ? Does the relative lack of support for the war give you any concerns ?

Be safe.

Your thoughts sound very much like my younger brother's. He always says that isn't so much about him but his buddies around him and that the training just kicks in when the SHTF

Take care and come home safe.

I listened to the show and I thought I would ask you this since no one else has asked yet.
How and why did you choose to become a Mod for the Research forum.

Your welcome, and thank you for listening.

I feel they have a right to be that way, if they want to. Just like I have the right to ignore them.



Does the relative lack of support for the war give you any concerns ?


Not at all, there is more support than the media leads on. For example many folks back home contribute to a care package program. Also those of us here know we have the support of our family and friends, which is more than enough.

I wouldn't say that, just doing my job. The real heros, are those who have gone on to Fiddlers Green. They are missed and derserve to be remembered. Why, because all gave some, some gave all.

Well, the previous forum mod for research had taken leave of the site. The now owners asked who would like to take over and fill in. After a bit of time passing by and no takers, I stepped up and said I could do it if they wanted.

Besides, I love research and finding out new things. Learning some thing new every day is a goal for me, it is some thing I really enjoy.

Great interview. It helps to put these things in perspective. There must be times when you just want to pull your hair out, kinda like when you're talking to the Rabbit.


Be safe man.

But I DID say that. And more importantly, I meant it.
I can only argue with half of your post. Those that fell are heroes.
So are you. You had the stones to join and serve, during a time when there was no doubt you would be on the front line.
Dude. It's an honor to be an ATS brother of yours.

your lucky to have such a great gift as to know what your doing and be able to show such progress thats going on in iraq.

Yes, it can get cold in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, quite a bit.
Closer is just a descriptive term, if you can imagine how close tight knit families are, then being closer than that, is pretty dang close. As for woman in the Iraq Police, havn't seen any, not very common.

Who is Michael Yon?
