Description

People face threats of violence every day, ranging from large-scale terrorism to one-on-one assaults. Most people are unprepared, unequipped, and untrained to respond effectively. This weakness in the flock allows the wolves to attack with great ease and success. There are a chosen few who have the courage to place themselves in harm's way between the wolves and the flock. They are known as Sheepdogs. Tim Kennedy, combat proven Special Forces Sniper, Airborne Ranger, and Mixed Martial Arts fighter. Tim has dedicated his life to protecting others, and teaching the skills of both armed and unarmed combat to the next generation of Sheepdogs. Doctor Mike Simpson, former Special Forces Operator, Airborne Ranger, and battle-proven warrior with over three decades of military experience. Mike has made it his mission to save lives both on and off the battlefield, and to spread the ethos of what it means to be a Sheepdog. From Law enforcement officers and first responders, to Combat Veterans and Martial Arts masters, the Sheepdog Project explores every aspect of what it means to be a modern Sheepdog.

SDP Episode 18: Captain Dale Dye
34:41

In this episode, Doc interviews Captain Dale Dye, USMC(Retired), a legend in both military and movie circles.

 

Captain Dale A. Dye, served 20 year sin the United States Marine Corps, rising from the rank of recruit private to Master Sergeant, before ultimately becoming a warrant officer, and finally a commissioned officer. He served multiple tours of combat in Vietnam, earning the Bronze Star with “V” for Valor, and three Purple Hearts for wound sustained in combat. He also saw action in Beirut Lebanon in the early 1980’s. Captain Dye came to Hollywood in 1985 with a vision in mind…to change how American civilians view the common grunt. Having been around infantrymen all his life and having been one himself, he knew that the majority are intelligent, creative, and full of heart…and the image of the dumb cannon-fodder blindly following orders not only was not true…but was a grave disservice to those brave servicemen who had risked and often gave their lives so that our nation could survive and prosper. So he looked for the best medium available to reach the hearts and minds of the public, and chose the film and television industry to spread his message.

 

Captain Dye’s current passion project is the film “No Better Place to Die”. This film will tell the incredible story of the three-day battle for the La Fiere bridge in Normandy, where brave soldiers from the US Army’s famed 82nd Airborne Division fought one of the most ferocious small-unit combats in US history. (See below for link to support this endeavor)

In this episode, Tim and Doc talk to country music legend and Texas icon turned Sheepdog, Shane Steiner.

 

Tommy “Shane” Steiner was born in Austin, Texas to a family of rodeo champions. His main goal, however, was to become a country music artist. He began touring throughout the state of Texas, playing various clubs throughout the state. RCA Nashville signed Steiner in 2001, and his debut single, "What If She's an Angel", was released that year, followed by the album Then Came the Night. The single was added to the playlists of nearly 100 of the stations on Billboard's panel in one week.[2] "What If She's an Angel" peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts. Follow-up singles were less successful, however, and Steiner parted ways with RCA Nashville in December of 2002. In 2011, Shane had a pivotal moment in his life and decided to dedicate himself to overall mind and body fitness. His journey led him to a friendship and training partnership with Tim Kennedy, and ultimately to become a martial artists and firearms expert. He is a regular instructor at Sheepdog response, and a board member of the Sheepdog Survival Fund.

Episode 19: Navy SEAL Mark Divine
58:25

Mark Divine is from upstate New York, where he earned a a degree in economics from Colgate University and an MBA in Finance from New York University Stern School of Business. Mark’s first career was with Coopers & Lybrand (now PriceWaterhouse Coopers) as a Certified Public Accountant. Clients included luminous financial firms such as Solomon Brothers and Paine Weber.

Four years after joining Coopers, Mark left behind the corporate world to pursue his vision to become an elite Navy SEAL officer. At 26 he graduated as honor-man (#1 ranked trainee) of his SEAL BUD/s class number 170. Mark served for nine years total on Active Duty and eleven as a Reserve SEAL, retiring as Commander in 2011.

Mark embarked on his third career as an entrepreneur in 1996 by co-founding the successful Coronado Brewing Company (CBC) and founding the web e-commerce site www.NavySEALs.com. He later sold his interest in CBC, but continues to run NavySEALs.com as the leading web site for gear and information about the SEALs. In 2006 he launched US Tactical, a government contracting business where he gained contracts with Naval Special Warfare Group ONE for training support and with the Navy Recruiting Command for a nationwide mentoring program for SEAL trainees. This latter program was credited with increasing the quality of Navy SEAL candidates and reducing the attrition rate at BUD/s by up to 5% and was the inspiration for SEALFIT.

Mark was an adjunct professor of leadership at the University of San Diego, where he left a PHD program due to the Iraq war Reserve call up. In Baghdad with the SEALs again in 2004, he conducted a special study for the DOD on the role of the USMC in the Special Operations Community. Upon return home he decided to focus fully on his business and family.

Mark is an accomplished martial artist with black belts in Seido and Goju Ryu Karate, a military hand to hand combat certification in SCARS and senior ranking in Saito Nijutsu. He is teacher trained in Ashtanga Yoga, and created the innovative Unbeatable Warrior Yoga program taught to his students.
After working with thousands of special ops candidates and professionals developing mental toughness, Mark self-published his first book Unbeatable Mind in 2011 and launched the at-home study program www.unbeatablemind.com. He is also the author of The Way of the SEAL published by Readers Digest and 8 Weeks to SEALFIT published by St. Martins Press.

SEALFIT is uniquely effective at developing elite level physical fitness and mental toughness. The program has helped thousands to operate at an entirely new level in their personal and professional lives, and is used by military, first responders and sheepdog-like professionals of all stripes worldwide.

Mark is a highly sought after speaker for corporations where his Unbeatable Mind program is helping to forge mental toughness among business leaders. He lives in Encinitas, CA., several blocks from the SEALFIT Training Center, the 20,000 square foot facility where he enjoys training with his family and team.

Through his dedication and hard work he returned to duty 7 months after his injury and deployed again on a non-combat deployment only 12 months post injury. Since medically retiring in 2014, Dove has been actively involved with nonprofit organizations that strive to help wounded service members return to the outdoors. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for Special Operations Wounded Warriors, and is a Team 43 Sports Warrior. He is one of few that have vowed to continue to succeed and take his life and recovery into his own hands.

Episode 05: Green Beret and Bestselling Author Bob Mayer
43:22

Bob Mayer is a West Point Graduate, Former Green Beret, CEO of Cool Gus Publishing and a NY Times Bestselling Author. He has had over 50 books published, and has sold over four million copies.  He is greatly in demand as a leadership speaker and consultant for his Who Dares Wins: The Green Beret Way concept. He is also the Co-Creator of Cool Gus Publishing, which does both eBooks and Print On Demand.

Bob grew up in the Bronx. After high school, he entered West Point where he learned about the history of our military and our country. During his four years at the Academy and later in the Infantry, Mayer questioned the idea of "mission over men." When he volunteered and passed selection for the Special Forces as a Green Beret, he felt more at ease where the men were more important than the mission.

Mayer's obsession with mythology and his vast knowledge of the military and Special Forces, mixed with his strong desire to learn from history, is the foundation for his science fiction series Atlantis, Area 51 and Psychic Warrior. His unique background in the Special Forces gives the reader a sense of authenticity and creates a reality that makes the reader wonder where fact ends and fiction begins.

Bob has presented for over a thousand organizations both in the United States and internationally, including keynote presentations, all day workshops, and multi-day seminars. He has taught organizations ranging from writers, to law enforcement and even Fortune-500 companies.
