Round 1: The Barstool Sports Office is in a state of disarray. A gigantic mess left behind by Yankees fans has thrown PFC Bren onto the Battle Commander's radar (Erika Nardini) and that's not somewhere you want to be. What does Staff Sgt. Chaps have to say to him?

Round 3: MSG Mark Allen, 46, was shot in the head on 9 July 2009 while on a mission to search for Bowe Bergdahl. Unfortunately, he passed away last week. Seeing his pictures and what he went through after that mission was gutting. It's important to remember what Mark's mission was like. We talked to someone in Bowe's platoon to drive that point home. 

Round 4: Fortnite went down on Sunday in the middle of a long weekend. Is the Army ESports team going to be okay? Yes, the Army has an Esports team.

ROUND 1: Now that the UFO/Area 51 drama has subsided, we need to alert you to a much more pressing matter…. Torpedo Eating Sea Monsters. Yarghhh with eyes black… like a doll's eyes...

Round 4: October 7th was the 18th birthday for the war in Afghanistan. Now the war can vote, buy cigarettes and porn, and even enlist to fight itself WITHOUT its parent's permission. A lot has changed in the world in 18 years so we take a trip back in time.

Round 5: President Trump announced that the US will be leaving the Kurdish and Turkey border. Folks from both sides of the aisle are poo-pooing the decision. We try to wrap our brains around what's happening. 

Round 6: Our deepest concern goes out to the host or hostess at the Longhorn Steakhouse who had to inform guests that the longstanding military discount is no longer offered.
