The term “Weapons Free,” is used to describe a missile defense system which has been set to launch whenever and wherever the system’s computer senses any potential threat, according to Special Forces retired Lieutenant Colonel Brendan Welsh who shared a great many illuminating perspectives and theories about the US strike that led to the demise of Iran’s Maj. General Qassem Soleimani with our own Dave Carter.

And while there were no threats to the podcast (except a wisecrack or two by Alphonse Fontenot), Dave couldn’t resist going “weapons free,” in a show which also features a new segment called Meet The Member, in which various Ricochet Members sit down for a fun conversation with Dave. In this first installment of Meet The Member, Dave talks with a fellow veteran, Ken Owsley, known around these parts as “Spin.” They talk about everything from Spin’s time serving in the Army in Germany to sharing some laughs while discussing the value of maintaining a healthy sense of humor. Sportscaster Mark joins in to talk LSU Championship football, and General Hatchett unveils something called the Hatchett Doctrine. While no one was hurt and no small animals were abused in the making of this podcast, we think you’ll enjoy this “Weapons Free” edition of the show.
