Navy SEAL Jocko Willink Breaks Down Combat Scenes From Movies | GQ

Feb 20, 2020
If your reserve parachute doesn't work, the procedure is basically that you're going to wave at the world and fall to the ground because you're going to die. Hello, this is Jocko Willink and this is the fault. This is the Navy Seals movie what's our altitude is about 30,000. that's six miles up the halo jump is high altitude low aperture you parachute through the radar so they don't see you you go to such a high altitude that you can't they can pick you up and then you open your parachute at low altitude where radar is not effective. You would use it if you wanted to go somewhere and didn't want anyone to know you were there.

It allows you to enter without being detected. Jumping is fun, so if you're just training, you'll have a good time. If it's a night fighter team, Halo Jump, there will be a little more intensity in the situation, but if it's just a fun free fall, doing during the day to have a good time everyone will have a good attitude and have fun with it let's go back to carrying magazines that's pretty unrealistic you should have your gear prepared before jump procedures 45 minutes on the landing side of the beach that's something they usually do The lady in military

movies

is in a helicopter or a plane, there's so much noise there that you can't just have a normal conversation, you have to yell and scream at each other or write things down or use hand and arm signals.

How long? 30 seconds means you're 30 seconds away from getting out of here, super complex, six minutes if you have a long flight, sure someone could be reading a book, why not almost all the missions I participated in were in a vehicle and Were we in a vehicle? You don't read books because when you're in a vehicle outside the wire you have to watch out for ambushes and all that outside the wire just means that wherever you're parked you have a perimeter and the perimeter has, you know, a wall around it. There's barbed wire on the wall, barbed wire, so we're inside the wire and then the enemy is outside the wire.

You know, the C-130 is the actual transport aircraft that the military used for decades and now we have newer aircraft, but I think this. The movie is from 1990 and it's probably pretty accurate that a C-130 would be used. The C in the C-130 is designated as a cargo aircraft. People think it's bad to fly on a cargo plane. It's actually amazing and people hang hammocks and leave them. floor pads and getting into sleeping bags and it's like traveling back in time because you just go to sleep and you wake up and you're at your destination. I actually enjoyed traveling in cargo plants.

Good times, let me fast forward a little bit when you jump out of a plane, you will have an altimeter that will tell you what your altitude is, you will have a parachute and in this particular one, where they jump above 13,000 feet, you need oxygen, so they have oxygen. an oxygen mask they are going to depressurize the cabin so they can open up and that way you are not breathing that thin air that is why they need to put those oxygen masks on Jesus, it doesn't look good, I wouldn't jump If I were you, what is happening there is pretty realistic having your friend check your gear on

seal

teams and really all branches of the military depend on each other to make sure they're safe, the guy is checking the other person's. pins on their platform to make sure they will deploy their parachute correctly and then they are actually playing with it which is also pretty normal, if you know someone is afraid of parachuting then they will tease them some more, never let anyone know it. that you are afraid of anything, keep it to yourself, someone on the team is called a jump master and that person is actually checking the navigation and position and making sure that we exit the plane at the right point. school you go to to become a jump master and within a platoon of 16 guys there would probably be two or three jump masters who could execute a jump three two one that's real yeah the light system where there's a light red which means wait and when that light turns green that's the signal to depart, you have to remember that that plane is moving very fast so if someone jumps you wait five seconds and you'll be too far apart so yeah you depart in a very tight group, you stay close for a while, once you're close to opening you spread out a little bit because yeah, obviously once your parachutes are open you don't want people hitting each other, so for a jump like This one you reach 2,500 feet and you are checking your altimeter.
During the entire descent, you separate yourself a little from the other members of the team. This is your sign. It's called waving to let everyone know you're about to pull the parachute and then look at the ripcord as you pull it out. your parachute deploys so what you should feel when you pull the launch cord is a little bit of a delay and then something called a pilot chute is a little spring-loaded parachute that jumps off your back and takes in air and then that's what pulls When you pull out the rest of your parachute, you're suddenly pulled, you know it's like stopping abruptly in mid-air, so that's what it's supposed to feel like, but as you can see in this particular situation, this guy isn't going to do it. .
I feel a very strong shock because it has a malfunction. There are a lot of different things that can go wrong with a parachute. I had a malfunction in my career. I see there's a little square right next to your hands, above your hands, it's called a slider and it actually goes down, it goes up with the parachute and when the parachute opens it slides down to the base and sometimes that can hanging, it's called a hanging slider and what it does is that little square of fabric keeps the entire parachute attached. that's what I had and my parachute just wouldn't open what do you do when your parachute won't open? you follow the procedures you know we train very hard to know what the procedures are there are some things you can do some procedures you can do to try to fix that malfunction so in my case I was pulling on the bands to see if I could release that control slider to start going down, was not working.
I'm checking my altimeter because at 1900 feet I said it was fine. this parachute is not going to work, so you go through the cutting procedures, you arch yourself to get the correct position of your body, you look at your cut, it's called a cutting pillow, you grab it, you pull that and then you look at your reserve handle. you grab it, you pull and the first one cuts your main parachute so it doesn't interfere with anything and there is actually a mechanism that when you cut your main parachute it starts to deploy your reserve parachute, sometimes you don't even need to do that. pull the repeater cable, hopefully you'll get a good solid shot at that point I'm sitting here today, which means my reserve parachute worked.
Fortunately, there have been guys who have survived what is called a partial malfunction, which means they have some fabric on top of them that is slowing down. Bring them down a little bit, but if you go to terminal velocity and hit the ocean, the ground doesn't really matter, you're dead, okay, let me play, this is a partial malfunction so you can see some of his parachute is open now, yeah If you hit the ground with that kind of parachute, it will be a real problem. I mean, you'll get seriously hurt, but if you hit the water with that kind of parachute, I mean, you have a chance. there is a cut and there is his reservoir as soon as it opens when he gets to the water, place a decent amount of cloth over his head once you get to the water, now you need to gather your crew and normally you would be jumping with a boat, I think in En This scene in particular, they immediately start in a dive, which is not very realistic.
The distance you would have to travel on the dive if you parachuted, you would have to be at least above the horizon, which is 12 nautical miles. In the sea you will not be able to dive 12 nautical miles, there is no human diver who can do that, so that is quite unrealistic, this is Blackbeard's active value, loud and clear, waiting in this attack, I think what they are dealing with to simulate. Here is something called a rigid hole inflatable boat, which is a common type of boat used by

seal

ing teams. Actually, it's used for these types of situations that they're showing right now in this movie, which moves along a river where you have a little bit. a little more latitude to use a bigger ship listen to your location 15 microphones only represent minutes the microphones are minutes it's kind of interchangeable so the things on his helmet this guy has a real light I don't know why he has it pointing backwards but it's they have a normal headlamp for camping and then the other thing they have is a night vision mount but there is no night vision on their rig right now well we move a lot underwater but we do it while diving so show up That's right it's not very realistic, one of the hardest things about maintaining a gun is carrying it through water, especially in the ocean, this is normal fresh water, so it will be a little easier, still, when you get out of the water, you have to make sure the barrel is clean and you have to drain the water from the gun just because you are in the seal teams doesn't mean you are a sniper.
Sniper is a specialized school that kids go to and there are a lot of different schools that you could be a communications expert you could be a doctor you could be what's called an offender where you use explosives to open doors I was a communicator so I went to a communication school I went to many other schools besides that, but when it came to primary scroll designations I was no sniper and I was no offender either. Freeze this frame. The reason you haven't seen a drone like this before is because in terms of drone technology, this is old, they were very difficult to fly.
I mean, nowadays they have little quadcopter drones that a five year old could fly if they wanted to. These were much more difficult to fly. You had to be a bit more of a pilot to make them work. It didn't take long. If you want no one to use these types of drones for almost any mission, you will try to maintain security and silence for as long as possible and then the most important thing you want to achieve with the enemy is surprise. I stop it here, it's just not realistic at all. I guess they are trying to make things look good.
It always surprises me a little because, like I said, it's the best job in the world and you don't really need to do it. anything to make it look cool, it's cool, it's awesome, to the extent that some random guy can put his hands up to time this sniper shot, it's dumb, one of the things that makes being on seal teams difficult its alot. of this is based on water, if you are going to be wet all day, guess what else you are going to be, you are going to be cold and if you are in a cold environment, coming in and being wet is definitely something that will affect you, we actually use dry suits that keep us dry as we go.
A wetsuit lets water in and creates a very small layer of water between you and the ocean that actually keeps you warm. A dry suit keeps you warm by keeping you warm. the water comes out completely and you wear warmer clothes underneath, but then you have the problem of dealing with a dry suit. I think one of the things that makes seals good is that we have to deal with that water element all the time and so when you go out and do missions where there's no water involved, it always feels a lot easier to freeze this frame when you go to sniper school you actually build your own which is called a ghillie suit what they use when you go to sniper school you actually build your own ghillie suit there are parts you can buy but essentially they built those suits themselves ghillie suit and they will adapt that ghillie suit to different environments, so if they are in a jungle environment they will make it greener if they are in a desert environment they will make it more sandy colored and depending on the environment you are in, you will adapt your ghillie suit to That matches that tap on the shoulder right there, it just means hey, I'm last and when I tap you on the shoulder, that means you can leave that safe position.
The problem with the hallway is that there is a lot of unknown space in front of you, behind each of those doors, it could be a threat, so what you have to do is hold on. that security if someone just throws a hand grenade down that hallway it's going to be a problem, if someone puts a gun around one of those doors and starts shooting it's going to be a problem so hallways are definitely not a place where We like to spend time with the person. Those who are looking forward have to maintain the security of the front.
The person behind them or maybe two people behind them is actually controlling the flow of the rest of the guys. I have two squares coming out the back door. Everyone carries a radio that they will surely use. radios, if you are out of someone else's field of vision, you also only use verbal commands, I mean, once the shooting starts, we won't surprise anyone, so we will talk to each other, especially to people who are in the vicinity , inInstead of having 30 people in the element, all talking on the radio trying to explain things, it is better for groups that are isolated to communicate only verbally, if you have to communicate with someone who is not within your line of sight, then you can Get on the radio, this is an American sniper.
You said that here they have a sniper in the Olympic Games, but Iraq has a qualified shooter in three games. The movie is actually about Chris Kyle when he was attacking your commander. Chris Kyle was on assignment and Thug, that was my assignment unit when the movie came out. In fact, they had a screening for us in Coronado. sealing team three that's when I saw the movie a task unit is two sealed platoons combined and then with a small headquarters element on top that's what a task unit is because my stuff is not Iraq in this particular case what they're trying to The show is that the sniper won't be alone, they'll have some kind of security with them because if you're alone and you're looking with your sniper rifle then no one's going to have your back on this, they're showing Chris with another guy.
The reality of the situation in Ramadi, which is where Chris was with me, it wasn't just two or three guys most of the time, it was seven, eight, ten, fifteen, twenty guys to maintain a sniper position, two things that are diametrically opposed and they are When you are in a situation like this, everyone wants some kind of protection, so they stay close to a wall, which makes sense, however, if you crowd too much and a roadside bomb explodes or an improvised explosive device. A booby trap goes off, obviously the closer they are, the more people it will hurt.
Hey, there are times when you get hit and you can be with two or three people to hold a corner, but any military guy who's looking at that isn't going to go. to get a good feeling seeing everyone packed together like that, I mean you couldn't see much of the breach, but essentially what is a breach, you place a large explosive charge, which are specially made charges that open doors, you give step back and turn off the charge, I mean it's pretty normal, breaching also has advantages, so when you detonate an explosive charge that stuns the people in the room too, there are some advantages, but there are also times when you want keep quiet so there are pros and cons for both of us hey you don't mind if I go with you hey man let me see let's go through me when we were in the battle of Ramadi every operation we went out on we had air force marines of the army

navy

with us.
I think all the time that this represents an element of the Marine Corps that they call legend, like 24 confirmed kills. Heck, lose count if the situation is going to require you to have really long range and be able to shoot very long distances, you'd probably carry a specialized long range sniper weapon in an urban environment like this, it would be quite common to only carry a weapon that you can use a little in both environments. Hey, what's that man, go up to her and touch your helmet like that? his shooting hand came loose Chris wouldn't take his hand off the trigger and be ready to shoot this right here is an offender.
I talked about violators before, that means either this door is locked or the decision has been made to use some sort of explosive range. charge here, get off, get off right now, let me explain this a little bit. What's difficult about fighting in a city is that you have civilians running around intermingled with the enemy you're fighting. One thing we must remember about the Battle of Fallujah there were very strong warnings to all civilians to leave the city and the people who stayed there were considered hostile. Why are you here? What are you supposed to evacuate this area?
Why are you still here? I'm told everyone in town is going to be hostile, so they're probably taking the right approach by showing Chris sitting there holding his gun against this little boy. Chris wouldn't waste any time on that and move on to this adult right away. What you're trying to do is get control, that's what you're trying to do, you don't know what's happening when you walk into a room, you don't know what's happening, things aren't what they seem, so what? You are doing? what you are trying to do when you enter the rooms you are trying to take control of the room, I really just mean controlling the human beings that are there, which might mean telling them to get on the floor and not move anymore. .
Great, now you're in control, you have to make sure they don't have weapons, make sure they're not equipped with a suicide vest or something so they can't attack you, clearing the cameras, what you're doing is trying to make sure there are no guys bad guys there, if they are on the streets, you can eliminate them, but they are going to enter the buildings, they are going to the houses, it is a civilian population that is really suffering and you know, Ramadi, where I was, the civilians were the ones that were suffering more because they were getting infected from both sides, we had Iraqi soldiers with us or interpreters who spoke with the family and sometimes you feel some uncomfortable situation and suddenly I realize that there is a person in that house who was not from that family.
I guess he was an insurgent, he was a foreign fighter and then we could catch him and eliminate him. This is the only survivor. From what I see, we have three options. he's going on a hike they'll probably find him in less than an hour two we tie them up we walk he rolls the dice they'll probably be eaten by wolves or they'll freeze to death three we finish the commitment you know in the seal teams most of the time they've all done it the same general idea of ​​what we should do, unless something is just a bad decision, then someone might say: Hey boss, that's not a good decision right now, but yeah, for someone in a small group like this, they just talk with him and she says this is It's not at all unusual for a group of seals to discuss how we are going to do something now, ultimately that decision falls to the commander and whoever is in charge of that element is the one who will say, "Hey , this was my decision and this." it's what we did, you can't as a leader once you make a decision or once consensus comes and then things go wrong, you don't say right, you know that's what everyone wanted to do, don't do that, you're the one with the ultimate decision making power, you can get consensus, you can take suggestions from other people, but ultimately when you are the leader, you are in charge, you will own the decision you make, we will let it go, 20 more will die to continuation. the rules of engagement of the week say we can't touch them I get it and I don't care I care about you I care about you I care about you I care about you yeah, you get a very specific rules of engagement summary you know what the rules are It could be as specific as you are not allowed to handcuff women or you are not allowed to enter a mosque or you are not allowed to pass a certain line on a map, there will be parameters that you will be allowed to operate in.
The big difference is that on teams of seals the information is carried out by the members of the platoon and each one informs his section, so, for example, the key man gets up and explains the route we are going to take to reach the objective area, then everything will be done in that period, let's say the breach team is going to come in and do a breach on a wall or a door, the breach leader will take over that part of the report and say okay once we get there. Here Bill, you'll be there, Joe, you'll be here.
The offender will come in, set the load, and then we'll cover up here so everyone individually reports their part of the mission, so it's a collaboration. We push the summaries, we try to keep them to an hour, you know, after an hour there shouldn't be so much information that requires more than that, and after an hour, the hard drives are full, we want you to know the important things that we need. I want them to understand the flow of the mission and then once they understand that, that's it, it's a big deal to break the rules of engagement, but at the same time the rules of engagement are written in such a way that if you think you need to do it something to protect your troops or the mission, then you can do what you need to make that happen, so it's a tough decision to make.
They want to execute this mission. They know they're after a bad guy who's been murdered. Americans and at the same time they have some people that they are suspicious of but they cannot confirm it, so it is a very difficult decision to make. This is Captain Phillips in this particular situation. It is a maritime environment. He is in boats and seals are the maritime environment. component of US special operations, so if there is a strictly aquatic operation like this, it will most likely be seals executing that operation. Sir, the pirates just issued a threat. What is the translation?
If he moves again, shoot him. It looks like it's just the control room on a

navy

ship, that's what it looks like, there's a lot of screens in there, there's a lot of communications in there, there might be 10 or 15 people in there watching what's going on and communicating with each other, that is one One of the things we do all the time when we train is we shoot what we call hostage scenarios so they put a friendly target in front of a non-friendly target and we have to go in and shoot the bad guy. boy without shooting the boy well my work unit conducted a hostage rescue during our deployment to Ramadi, where we went and rescued a 15 or 16 year old boy who had been kidnapped by insurgents and was being held for ransom.
We rescued that child and succeeded in something. Which we train for, doesn't happen very often. Hostage rescues are very challenging situations because if you know well that a building is full of bad guys, then you can be very liberal in how you employ your weapons systems. If you go against a target where you know there are friends there as hostages, then you have to be much more discriminatory in the way you confront the enemy alpha and charlie red we are three reds this time I am a light bulb this is the negotiator if you harm the hostage we do not have an agreement, I have never heard of a negotiation that takes place in a military scenario because we assume that the people holding the hostages are hostile and what they have to do is die, you know, the seals that carried out this operation are some of the best guys in the entire world and when they go to shoot, they will be ready to do it and I don't know about this coordination system, if they used it it's amazing, but if they didn't I would do it.
It doesn't matter that these guys are going to do the job, roger, stop toe, execute a generally decentralized command, is what we're dealing with, so in that case, where the snipers are positioned together like that, probably They would only be communicating with each other. you want your subordinate teams when they launch, you want them to have the green light to go when everything is ready, so that's a little micromanaged, but I don't know how exactly it played out in reality, we do know one thing: they rescued that guy and he they killed the bad boys, so credit, a lot of my vocabulary is infected because I was on the seal teams my entire adult life, I mean, from time to time they look at me funny if I say "check", for example, that's one in the one that if you tell me something, I might say Again, check that means I understand and am okay with what you are saying.
No factor, that is if you tell me something is going on. I might look at you and say, No factor, meaning I got this and those are good because. they are used a lot, I mean, you can use them a lot in everyday life, you know, if someone says, oh no, there's traffic on the highway, there's no factor, I'll take the back roads like they're normal things, but yeah, there's a lot. Of the things we say in the military this is how it is when you go to any organization, they will have their own little words that they will use, this is how I talk now, this is zero dark 30. helicopters are definitely one of the most common modes of transportation , but again it varies from place to place when I was in the battle of Ramadi, the two times they flew over the city when we were there, they were shot heavily even to get a wounded guy out that we had I have to get him out of the city and to a from secure bases to get someone in a helicopter, even for fire support.
You know, in battle the Romani fire support was almost all tanks and tankers, so God bless those guys for what they did, but in a situation like this, they travel long distances in Afghanistan, they use helicopters all the time. . Dogs are quite common. They feel like they know what they can do to be frank. You can put them in situations you wouldn't want to. they risk the life of a human being, they use them to detect explosives and they are also a great asset, yes it seems like they are just naming what those helicopters are called and that is normal, different planes will have different call signs in this case.
They are prince52 and prince51. I think what they are trying to represent are different phase lines of an operation. In other words,As you get closer to a target, you will have different marks; When you pass those marks, you will call them. up the chain of command so everyone knows hey, we're in phase alpha line phase bravo line so everyone knows where the mission is as it's happening hey justin, what are you listening to? Tony Robbins Tony Robbins really used to listen to it. I have plans for after this, it looks like he has some noise canceling headphones on his iPhone, so he could probably take them off, turn up the volume, that's just the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, there's guaranteed to be a face line on that border.
We have just crossed the border and now entered Pakistan. Pakistanis don't talk even though they have crossed into Pakistani land. They don't hear any communication from anyone, so they say, "Hey, look, we have gone to Pakistan, but no one talks about it, which is a positive sign." Your night vision seems like in all of these sometimes there are more advanced glasses that also have a thermos. but from what I can see in these images, it looks like normal night vision. Yes, some of them are even more advanced night vision goggles that give you a better field of vision.
People adapt to them. It takes you a couple of hours to walk. around and you are adapted to them, if you walk into a bright room and your night vision is lost, raise your head a little and you will be able to look under your night vision, no big deal or you can just turn them up, you walk into a dark room , you can just bang your head forward a little bit and that night vision will come back down so everyone can find their own little techniques on how they're going to do it 30 seconds yeah basically there's a big thick rope grab that rope and you slide down like a fireman going down a pretty simple fireman's pole stay steady stay close when the bird lands and takes off you want your group to be very close until you start moving towards the target, I would say one of the big misconceptions that the people have about the people who are in the seal teams is that they are some kind of superhuman individuals.
You have to remember that seals are just people and they train very hard, they work very hard. to try to be good at our jobs, but they are still people and not just deleted robots. We watch a lot of

movies

of these different operations or these fictitious operations, but we must remember that the SEALs, like every other branch of the service has suffered massive casualties not only in our history but also in these recent wars, so although seem cool, you have to remember that real sacrifices have been made not just for the seals themselves, not just for the marines in the military and in the air. strength, but the families back home also suffer those losses and live with them for the rest of their lives, we always have to remember what the real sacrifices are, that was my breakdown, thanks for watching.
