triple amputee missing two legs and an arm. we are both from illinois so we connected at walter reed when i first met brian. he became after i started my foundation, he became, we became friends and he became an ambassador for my foundation. recently we held what we call walls of honor o ceremony, the midway place in our home building process and that's what you see on the screen, brian will have a new home around veterans day in tennessee we are building his house in tennessee so he's one of our many recipients of these rise homes we are building and i am very grateful to have him as a friend and to have known him, he's an inspiration, i write about him in my book and i was privileged to write the forward to the book he wrote called no turning back.

met brandon and i asked if we could build him a home andom that's when we first got involved with the military in a big way and we filled hundreds of homes since then, smart homes in getting back to independence, guys and gals in the country and a lot of it was taken because they've given their lives to their country so that's how we got involved with the military. and first responders, assassinated in 2014, we saw they were worried about their mortgage payment, we went in and paid off their mortgages and first responder mortgages with young families, who wanted to do the same with goldstar families and we are doing over 200 of them. last year end over 200 of them this year. h >> you have great personal stories and we see a lot on the channel, you said fantastic

to get back into society so we know it's not just a roof, it's all the services they are going to need. >> was interesting is you got into this because yours little brother lost his life trying to save as many people as he could, 9/11 when the towers were hit and he lost his life that day. what has it meant for you to bet part of these communities that maybe you were notie much part f prior to starting this foundation in the military immunity and first responder community? >> it's an important mission, my brother stephen would be proude of the work we are doing. he gave his life and paid the ultimate sacrifice himself. we saw the effect it had on our family, he was my little brother, youngest of seven. he was married with five children, he paid a big price and we just wanted to honor what he did that day and what better way to honor, st. francis says brothers and sisters while we are here, let us do good and this is good and right and this
is just and it's an honor. >> memorial day two weeks or a week later his father is dead and those kids don't have a dad. we think about all the time. t to t.work and find out where you can help. eleven dollars a month, we can take care of these great families not just this year but every year. >> you never stop. thanks so much. you are somebody else who doesn't have to be told to pause 3:00 monday and neither is my next guest. thank you. millions of americans look after a servicemember or care for someone in the family of a fallen service members. my next guest wants to help those taking care of our nation's heroes, his organization you're probably familiar with, 35000 scholarships to the spouses and children of america's fallen that's, totaling more than $160 million in educational aid. ceo and founder lieutenant
colonel dan, active again as a fighter pilot is with us now. if i don't catch on the course for honor on the nascar, i can look in the sky and see a fighter jet, you might be flying it, right? >> when i was 12 years old, i met my first fighter pilot, my first man crush, chance for the purpose and i'mas now in the recruiting command for the united states air force, space force and honeymoon of my career trying to pay that forward. act a percent of this country that wakes up every day willing to sacrifice for our freedoms. without the air force in my life, brian, none of this is ever possible. it's been such a blessing to me, and to get to pay that gift forward for the men and women who are next generat they've been a blessing to me and we get to pay that gift
forward for the young men and women who are the next generation of the air force space force, it's great and obviously work goes hand-in-hand taking care of these families. >> a lot of times when tragedy hits or something hit you, you are seeing afa casket taken offa commercial jet and you saw people paying attention saying this is not right you watched the foundation becauseay of it d it's as big as any in the country. i found out even between one to 2% of the country served in the military, 40% of those served our legacy, families who serve. the same families keep on serving, for in every ten you see in uniform, i was stunned by that. one thing that brings a home not only are you the face. honor, lisa suffered a tragedy and how she helps others through that while helping herself? >> we know there's a half a% of the country who wakes up willing to live john 15 : 13.
no greater sacrifice into laydown your life, is not just to say i'm sorry or thank you for your service but come around and take care of those families giving them the gift of education. i am the father of five daughters you can see looking at me but if anything happens to me, they would be taken care of specifically getting education in fact where full's of honor jepson and gift of education is the force multiplier that separates this country from other countries. >> this was spurred by the death of her husband, john, killed on his stryker on his attack in southern afghanistan. n. she spurred into action so many times. the best way to getover your
grief is to take action to help others. >> these military spouses are heroic. they just need a hand-up, not a hand-out. lisa is a perfect example of just how special these spouses are. when i raised my right hand and joined the united states air force, my family goes along for the ride. and to be able to >> to empower lisa and her three kids is a gift and we can step up especially in this memorial day holiday, freedom is not f free. do something meaningful and say thank you for your freedoms by taking care of these families. >> also fold of honor and knowing the money will go to the right place so because you will never replace the spouse or father or mother in that family, do the best you can to make sure that family goes on and get the
education if that's the direction they want to go. thanks so much, dan. you are recruiting for the space force and air force competing in the job market everybody wants to hire, you're having trouble hiring military is no exception. the best salesperson there is. thanks so much, appreciate it. >> have a blessed memorial day. >> thanks for the time. thanks for sharing your story. next, as we look back at history, general george patton took a bold stance to motivate his people to world war ii so how does he compare loud music zelenskyy, those comparisons to more straightahead.

>> what would you say to america who say this is europe's problem, hugh does russia's invasion threaten the united states. >> they have to start reading some memoirs of the second world war. brian: the president of ukraine demonstrating his leadership. he's praised as a global me row. and he's urging america to not
forget your past. his leadership skills compared to those of general george patton. author of "patton's payback," steven moore, welcome. congratulations on the book. >> thank you, brian. brian: zelenskyy has to remind americans what happened in world war ii. he didn't have to remind an historian like you. why don't put in context what he's saying by supporting us you are looking out for yourselves. >> here is a man who is a master communicator. he knows how to motivate people. and he's out in the front. he's not in the background. patton was the same way. he was put in a position to fight the german army when we
had not been doing well in the north african campaign. it's fair to compare these two men. brian: we let europe go to war on itself. when that war came home, we had an uphill battle. the battle of normandy to get into europe and push everybody back. general patton also forecasted the soviet union even though they were allied with us as being a problem. and he was never trustful of who we now know as russia. >> patton was thinking ahead. even before the war he and -- d eisenhower were pushing for tanks that weren't used before. patton was not a conventional warfare leader. the way he motivated men was far different than his predecessor.
but there were campaigns for sicily, italy, france, europe. everything else coming up. brian: and he saw communism as a long-time go and problem. here is general patton talking about victory in europe. >> those of you who have not been at war, do not realize what those of us who have been at war have done for you with our blood and your money. you must produce the sweat, the money to destroy those indescribable people. join me in saluting general
doolittle and the heroic soldiers of the third army who are behind me now and have always been behind me. brian: that moment is true. he also fought world war i and becomes the commander in world war ii not without controversy. >> you think of the movie with george c. scott and this booming commanding man. but this little shrill voice and squeaky at times. but people learn don't make fun of him because he will come back and get you. he knew how to nod his head in the direction of others to get him to where he needed to go. and he wasn't afraid to tip his hat to those he needed to. brian: why do you think patton is i none us in with strength and success all show controversial. what did you glean from this
project? >> his success was being out in the front. they said he was not afraid to be seen, and he wanted his leaders to be seen. he encouraged one leader pat one time to send more troops to the front, specifically officers. he said i want you to keep the officers out there until you get a few of them killed. the commanding officers being 100 yards behind the troops in the action. he made his point, he made it known who was in command and he did whip the army into shape just in a matter of weeks. >> in the end, patton's words live in infamy. and congratulations on the book,
steven l. moore. >> thank you, brian. brian: one goal of this show was to reflect on history and how it's relevant with what's happening in the world today. give you perspective on some of those history lessons "one nation" has brought forward. don't move.

(fisher investments) no. we structure our fees so we do better when clients do better. that might be why most of our clients come from other money managers. at fisher investments, we're clearly different.

brian: welcome back to the memorial day edition of "one nation." one of the issues plaguing putin is the possible special of nato. finland and sweden have applied to join the military alliance. turkey is trying to stand in their way. president of turkey claiming they are a home to terrorists. what is nato, why does it matter? here is a look. the scene at the end of world
war ii devastating. 35 million killed, many at the hands of hitler. daily life dominated by refugee camps and millions much homeless. shortly after, the scheming dictator joseph stalin started taking over eastern europe. he turned it into a buffer joan between the ussr and the west. nato was formed in 1949. there were 12 founding members. more countries joined over the years. west germany joined and, the east formed the warsaw pact to answer. it put europe on edge. later civilized -- symbolized by
the berlin wall. nato adopted a massive retaliation doctrine warning they would respond with an all-out nuclear war if attacked. nato conducted several operations over the years, including entering afghanistan after 9/11 invoking for the first time in history article 5. an attack answer one was an attack against all. much to the ire of the slimmed down russia, nato expanded closer to their border. former warsaw nations applied and gained admission to the defensive a90's, offering a deterrent to russian aggression. will vladimir putin be the first

for all-day, all-night protection. can you imagine 24 hours without heartburn? the choice for attorney general is clear. democrat rob bonta has a passion for justice and standing up for our rights. bonta is laser focused on protecting the right to vote and defending obamacare. but what's republican eric early's passion? early wants to bring trump-style investigations on election fraud to california, and early says he'll end obamacare and guard against the growing socialist communist threat. eric early. too extreme, too conservative out-of-state corporations wrote
for californ an online sports betting plan they call "solutions for the homeless". really? the corporations take 90 percent of the profits. and using loopholes they wrote, they'd take even more. the corporations' own promotional costs, like free bets, taken from the homeless funds. and they'd get a refund on their $100 million license fee, taken from homeless funds, too. these guys didn't write a plan for the homeless. they wrote it for themselves.
brian: china. they may be america's most formidable foe ever. they are wing an undeclared war as well. all about fentanyl. here is a quick history lesson. 150 years ago the west led by the british was flooding china with opium. the opium trade creates drug abuse nationwide. it kept china compliant. fast forward to 1949, post world war ii. slowly by weaving in some capitalist principles, china
grew into an economic super power. and they never forget, paying back japan for their world war ii occupation and to the west driving the drug addiction. we weren't part of the opium wars, but they seem to be targeting america flooding our nation with this generations opium, fentanyl. one dose can kill. china is sending? fentanyl to our country through mexico. 5,000 pounds have been stopped at the border. we have become the unwitting best customers, resulting too often in instant death, addiction and broken families. what's especially insidious.
china's fentanyl is hitting america's youth hard. 77% of teen overdose deaths involved fentanyl. from 2019-2020, the number rising another 0% the following year. is china targeting america in another opium war? it seems that way. stop the flow at its source and block it at our border. it's hard to imagine any other issue more important to the fabric of this nation. energy and gas prices are soaring across this nation. record highs. many hitting the roads this memorial day weekend or not because of those prices. america was once energy independent. time for a look back at the

brian: nearly 4 oh million people are expected to travel. some states are looking at $5 or $6 a gallon. it's crippling american families. especially those going from paycheck to paycheck. the problem our energy dependents on other countries. we used to be independent. how did we get hereby? let's take a look back. >> this put the world and wheels with a need for fossil fuels to power the first affordable automobile. oil would become a global commodity, black liquid gold. gas prices were below 50 cents.
fast forward to 1973. opec put an oil embargo in place forcing gas prices to surge. it was to punish the u.s. and other nations for supporting israel after egypt and israel launched a surprise attack on the holyland. three months later oil prices more than quadruple. the first oil crisis hit. odd-even gases. the era of cheap energy came to an end. 1974. the focus becoming energy independent. that mission was born. that came under president richard nixon. for decades republican and democratic presidents said the
only way to achieve energy independence was strict conservation. fast forward to donald trump's presidency. he thought government should get out of the way so oil companies could do their job. america exported more oil than they imported in decades. going full speed on fos i will fuel production, including fracking, extracting gas and oil from rock that is underground. under president trump production peaked at 12 million barrels a day. november 2021, that dropped to 11.2 million. biden killed pipelines, reverses almost all of trump's pro oil drilling policies making the
u.s. and europe dependent on russia for reliable energy. now a war between ukraine and russia could raise the stakes. biden plans to target russia's nord stream 2 pipeline. as they try to make russia suffer, so will the nato countries. >> i spoke to the governor of north dakota web's being forced to keep 500,000 barrels of oil a day in the ground. if when they are allowed to be produced it would help the price of gas and we wouldn't have joe biden begging opec to increase production. brian: president biden says pump less, dig less. you are paying more because the administration is restricting
