Commando Crow:

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.

Commando Crow:

And to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible,

Commando Crow:

with liberty and justice for all.

Commando Crow:

Good morning, my fellow Americans.

Commando Crow:

I hope your new year is starting out well.

Commando Crow:

We're about to kick off the second episode of 2024.

Commando Crow:

And we'd like to hear your opinions and thoughts on this new direction

Commando Crow:

we've taken in our conversation.

Commando Crow:

Conversations, just drop us an email at pod team at the

Commando Crow:

constitution commandos org.

Commando Crow:

Don't forget to sign up for our weekly emails.

Commando Crow:

We'll never miss a new episode.

Commando Crow:

My name is Chris Williams.

Commando Crow:

I'm the host.

Commando Crow:

My brother Patrick Williams is co-host, and together we

Commando Crow:

are Constitution commandos.

Commando Crow:

There's when, before both of us went in the military, you had told me you

Commando Crow:

were doing something just to get ready.

Commando Crow:

And just so everybody knows, we were not spring chickens

Commando Crow:

when we went into service, but.

Commando Crow:

There was something you were doing that I started doing.

Commando Crow:

I thought it was pretty cool, you know, because, you know, we don't really know

Commando Crow:

what to expect going into bootcamp.

Commando Crow:

Yeah.

Commando Crow:

We've been told the stories.

Commando Crow:

We kind of have an idea, but we don't really know.

Commando Crow:

But remember you told me that every time you cross the threshold

Commando Crow:

of a door, you would drop, do 10 pushups or 15 pushups, 20 pushups.

Commando Crow:

Now here's the thing.

Commando Crow:

That's a cool thing to do just to get in shape.

Commando Crow:

But while you're down there doing those push ups, be looking around

Commando Crow:

the floor and see what may be in the way, see what might be useful.

Commando Crow:

You know what I mean?

Commando Crow:

Use that 10 push up time to, to discover things.

Commando Crow:

Look around.

Commando Crow:

I mean, and if you, I mean, in a dwelling, if you have a place to live right now,

Commando Crow:

that is your most important place.

Commando Crow:

You need to know it above all else.

Commando Crow:

And I'm not talking about within the four walls or the confines of your dwelling.

Commando Crow:

You need to know the boundaries that, you know, the external parts as well.

Commando Crow:

So when you cross a threshold, do your 10 push ups and see if you

Commando Crow:

can find your fire extinguisher or, you know, your screwdriver.

Commando Crow:

I mean, whatever.

Commando Crow:

Yeah.

Commando Crow:

All American Commando: You can multitask.

Commando Crow:

Look at things like your carpet corner is lifting a little bit.

Commando Crow:

That's a trip hazard.

Commando Crow:

You know, find little things like that.

Commando Crow:

I mean, you just want to make sure that you have awareness.

Commando Crow:

I mean, from the ceiling to the floor, every piece of furniture,

Commando Crow:

all of your emergency supplies, you need to have situational awareness.

Commando Crow:

That's right.

Commando Crow:

And if you think any of this sounds crazy, just wait

Commando Crow:

until the lights go out and you can't turn them back on and you

Commando Crow:

trip over that corner of the carpet.

Commando Crow:

You look back on it and say, man, I should have paid attention to that.

Commando Crow:

All American Commando: Well, I mean, once again, that's where

Commando Crow:

the beauty of this is right now.

Commando Crow:

You don't have to do this or you're not in a situation where

Commando Crow:

it's mandatory to accomplish this.

Commando Crow:

So get ready now.

Commando Crow:

And occasionally when it's dark outside, you have no sun coming in, right?

Commando Crow:

Tell yourself, Oh, I'm going to find my first aid kit.

Commando Crow:

Go with no lights on and get your first aid kit.

Commando Crow:

And then, like

Commando Crow:

I said, I can't emphasize this enough.

Commando Crow:

Start training, period, in the dark.

Commando Crow:

If the sun's out, blindfold yourself, practice.

Commando Crow:

Believe me, it will

Commando Crow:

All American Commando: be important.

Commando Crow:

Absolutely.

Commando Crow:

I would say another thing that goes along with sight defense, or when I say

Commando Crow:

sight defense, I'm saying everything I say when I say sight defense is

Commando Crow:

basically preservation of life, because you have to be smart and you have to

Commando Crow:

understand there are times where you will not be able, or it would not be

Commando Crow:

smart, to maintain your location and you will have to leave your location.

Commando Crow:

Chris, are you still there?

Commando Crow:

Yeah, I am.

Commando Crow:

Sorry.

Commando Crow:

I was blocking out background.

Commando Crow:

Okay, but when we're talking about site defense, it's important

Commando Crow:

to get to know and do it now.

Commando Crow:

You don't have to bring politics into the picture.

Commando Crow:

You don't have to go out and just openly express ideologies.

Commando Crow:

But meet your neighbors.

Commando Crow:

Please meet your neighbors.

Commando Crow:

That right there will be one of the things that will enable you

Commando Crow:

to stay at your place longer.

Commando Crow:

If you meet your neighbors, you find out.

Commando Crow:

Like I said, don't bring up politics.

Commando Crow:

That's nothing but a divider.

Commando Crow:

Nowadays, people are on such opposite ends of the spectrum.

Commando Crow:

And some people get so hostile, don't create a problem.

Commando Crow:

Just talk to people, ask.

Commando Crow:

Kind of vague questions.

Commando Crow:

Get to know your neighbor and get to know how they feel about certain situations.

Commando Crow:

And if those things arise, you know, these, whether it be a hurricane or

Commando Crow:

tornado or societal breakdown, are they willing to be a community for

Commando Crow:

the good and not to be a disruptor?

Commando Crow:

And.

Commando Crow:

And look, before

Commando Crow:

you even engage in those conversations, and, and Patrick,

Commando Crow:

I'm saying this with you here, before you even get engaged in those

Commando Crow:

conversations, just be a neighbor.

Commando Crow:

You know, if you see your neighbor's grass is getting tall, just help

Commando Crow:

them out and build relationships.

Commando Crow:

Cause if you don't have the relationships, I promise you, it's only, it's only

Commando Crow:

going to be worse than you can imagine.

Commando Crow:

All American Commando: Absolutely.

Commando Crow:

And once you develop your Your relationships in your immunity, I'm going

Commando Crow:

to continually utilize myself as examples.

Commando Crow:

And when I say no, your neighbors and develop the community, I'm not talking

Commando Crow:

about the municipality that you live in.

Commando Crow:

I'm talking about the people that live on your street, live on your block.

Commando Crow:

Live in your neighborhood.

Commando Crow:

This is why I say in your neighborhood.

Commando Crow:

My home, if I had to stand alone, You'd be screwed.

Commando Crow:

is completely indefensible.

Commando Crow:

I have too many avenues of

Commando Crow:

and I don't just stop with my neighbor to the left and to

Commando Crow:

the right or across the road.

Commando Crow:

I go over time and I meet the neighbors that live down the road

Commando Crow:

and around the corner or I meet the neighbors that live behind me.

Commando Crow:

If I do that then and I'm not saying look in a bad situation.

Commando Crow:

Everybody has a use.

Commando Crow:

So when I say this, I don't mean it like use your neighbor.

Commando Crow:

That's not what I'm talking about, but that is a resource.

Commando Crow:

Your neighbors will look out for you.

Commando Crow:

You will look out for them.

Commando Crow:

And if all possible, only willing participants.

Commando Crow:

I mean, don't just go around and start asking people, Hey, well, can

Commando Crow:

I get your phone number and all this, that, and the other, I want to start.

Commando Crow:

What we called an alpha roster or an alert roster in the military.

Commando Crow:

That's kind of like a pyramid.

Commando Crow:

It's no one

Commando Crow:

who can do what, where they can be best

Commando Crow:

All American Commando: suited.

Commando Crow:

Yep.

Commando Crow:

Yeah.

Commando Crow:

But you'll have a commander at the top of the pyramid.

Commando Crow:

And then he's going to have a sergeant that he calls the first sergeant is

Commando Crow:

going to call his platoon sergeants and the platoon sergeants call people

Commando Crow:

in their section sergeants, then the section sergeants call the people

Commando Crow:

in their section and eventually everybody on that list has knowledge

Commando Crow:

of what's going on at that moment.

Commando Crow:

So, right, developing.

Commando Crow:

You know, if you have a babysitter, you'll have your pediatrician's number

Commando Crow:

listed, you'll put your number on there, you'll put the location's phone

Commando Crow:

number of where you're going to eat, or, you know, you will put a list

Commando Crow:

of numbers for emergency contacts.

Commando Crow:

That is basically what an alpha roster is.

Commando Crow:

So if you get to know your neighbors, me, I have a retired Marine across the road.

Commando Crow:

I have a retired colonel living right next door to me.

Commando Crow:

I used to have a deputy sheriff on the other side.

Commando Crow:

I've got my son in law lives down the road for houses.

Commando Crow:

I've, I have a pretty decent knowledge of people on my road,

Commando Crow:

but I have to go further and meet people around the corner on the

Commando Crow:

road behind me and things like that.

Commando Crow:

And after you develop these relationships or while you're

Commando Crow:

developing them, talk to your neighbors.

Commando Crow:

They might have a specific skill that you don't have.

Commando Crow:

So if it comes to a point of a societal breakdown or a long period

Commando Crow:

of time with no power or water, they might be able to do something.

Commando Crow:

to benefit you and some other people in the neighborhood.

Commando Crow:

But at the same time, you yourself will probably have a skill that will be needed

Commando Crow:

by somebody else in your community and you have to be able to help them out.

Commando Crow:

So the ultimate goal is to have all the eyes in the community for the rest of the

Commando Crow:

eyes in the community and That will enable you to stay in your home much longer.

Commando Crow:

You know, you bring

Commando Crow:

that, all that, all that right there, and I didn't even

Commando Crow:

think about it until you just now said something, but I know like when we were

Commando Crow:

kids growing up where we grew up, which we were actually pretty lucky growing

Commando Crow:

up where we grew up, but um, if ever we went, let's say we went to Atlanta or we

Commando Crow:

went to, let's say we went to Talladega, we were usually gone for a week, right?

Commando Crow:

Yeah.

Commando Crow:

We'd go for.

Commando Crow:

We'd go for the races leading up to talent.

Commando Crow:

All American Commando: For four or five days.

Commando Crow:

Yeah,

Commando Crow:

we'll be there for qualifying.

Commando Crow:

We'll be there for the dirt races.

Commando Crow:

I mean, it was basically our vacation, but the bottom line,

Commando Crow:

we was gone for at least a week.

Commando Crow:

But when we left back then, you know, there were neighbors that knew we were

Commando Crow:

leaving a couple weeks in advance, keeping an eye on our house type of thing.

Commando Crow:

Right?

Commando Crow:

All American Commando: Collect our mail.

Commando Crow:

Yeah.

Commando Crow:

I can't think of a time since we left there that that's happened.

Commando Crow:

I didn't think about it until you started talking about that, but yeah,

Commando Crow:

who watches after each other anymore?

Commando Crow:

I mean, if you don't have those relationships, you don't have people

Commando Crow:

watching after you probably watch it for you to leave, but that's about it.

Commando Crow:

But anyway, I just, I just thought about that when you said

Commando Crow:

All American Commando: that.

Commando Crow:

So go ahead.

Commando Crow:

And this is site security.

Commando Crow:

Hold on, he's breaking up.

Commando Crow:

Hold on.

Commando Crow:

Can you hear me?

Commando Crow:

I think it's coming back.

Commando Crow:

Yeah, there you are.

Commando Crow:

Okay.

Commando Crow:

Go ahead.

Commando Crow:

All right.

Commando Crow:

So if you have a neighbor and you know they're going to go out of town for

Commando Crow:

a week or two, then if they get the newspaper, Well, their house becomes

Commando Crow:

an obvious target if they've got a week's worth of newspapers sitting on

Commando Crow:

the driveway or on the front doorstep, collect their newspapers for them.

Commando Crow:

If somebody wants to come back, a lot of mailboxes are on the curb.

Commando Crow:

Now, if somebody drives by and looks in a mailbox and the mailbox is slapped full,

Commando Crow:

they know that somebody that's right.

Commando Crow:

So their home has just been marked as a target.

Commando Crow:

Right.

Commando Crow:

An easy target.

Commando Crow:

So if you get to know your neighbors, that is called site security.

Commando Crow:

And if you also get to know your neighbors and you go out of town, ask those people

Commando Crow:

to do those little things for you.

Commando Crow:

And is it going to prevent a break in?

Commando Crow:

No, because a determined criminal is going to do something anyway,

Commando Crow:

but it will deter a break in.

Commando Crow:

Yeah,

Commando Crow:

and, and the thing is, I know there's somebody, there's a lot

Commando Crow:

of people I know that will, you know, there's a lot of people that will say

Commando Crow:

something stupid like, I don't care about my neighbors, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Commando Crow:

That's their business, not mine.

Commando Crow:

But here's the thing, when you leave your house for a week, and people start

Commando Crow:

noticing the newspaper pile up, or the mailbox is overflowing, that means

Commando Crow:

your neighbors aren't watching you.

Commando Crow:

It's not just that you're an easy target because you're not there.

Commando Crow:

Your neighbors ain't watching after you.

Commando Crow:

So, it's basically hand you over to the wolves.

Commando Crow:

I mean, You know what I mean?

Commando Crow:

Your neighbors aren't watching either.

Commando Crow:

So it makes it an easy target.

Commando Crow:

I mean, why not?

Commando Crow:

They move, put a moving truck up there in the driveway, kick the

Commando Crow:

door in, move everything out.

Commando Crow:

All American Commando: Well,

Commando Crow:

that's it for today.
