Say Her Name! Shedding light on the tragedy of Army Veteran Madalyn Coulter
The Veteran community is at a loss with the events unfolding but how come one person is praised a hero & the other isn't being mentioned?  Say it with your chest. THE FACTS! ALL OF THEM!   41 year old Zachary Scalf took the life of 28 year old Madalyn Coulter then took his own. This is not a 22 a day issue, this is DV and mental illness issue. If you are struggling, get some help, put your guns away, and talk things through. Zachary's behavior and actions are inexcusable. The lack of accountability is baffling.   Janae, Bridget and I sit down and hash this story out because a lot of folks are too afraid to speak up about this... WHY IS THAT? HOW?  - - - - -    To my male counterparts, don’t turn a blind eye to abuse/exploitation of our female Veterans in order to preserve the “brotherhood”. The signs were there. We scream from mountaintops and remain unheard, y’all whisper and the community stops to listen.  -janae_perfectlyflawed @ninelineapparel #madalyncoulter #zacscalf #22aday #dvawareness #veteran #MurderSuicide   Connect with us:  Janae: Jess: Bridget:  News article: Thank you for sharing Madalyn Coulter’s story 🙏🏻  2 U.S. Army Veterans, former Nine Line employees identified in murder-suicide investigation.  Around 5 p.m. on July 12, Savannah Police discovered the body of 28-year-old Madalyn Coulter in a red Toyota Highlander in the parking lot of the Double Tree Hotel on Yvette J. Hagins Drive near the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport. Dead from a gunshot wound, Coulter had been reported missing hours earlier.   The man ultimately suspected of her murder, 41-year-old Zachary Scalf, had been found dead hours earlier from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in his car, parked in the lot of Nine Line Apparel on Fort Argyle Road, where both Coulter and Scalf worked together from 2018 to 2020.   Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and Savannah Police released details of the suspected murder-suicide today, one week after their deaths. Both were U.S. Army veterans. He in the infantry and she as a healthcare specialist, according to their LinkedIn pages.  The Veterans Crisis Line is available 24/7/365 for veterans struggling with mental health or contemplating suicide by calling 988 and pressing 1, or texting 838255.

SSG Sandy Marquis Speaks Out - Ft. Hood Retaliates
Welcome! Resilient and Rowdy is honored to have SSG Sandy Marquis, an immigrant and patriot currently serving in the United States Army. After arriving in Fort Hood, SSG Sandy Marquis found out how manipulative uniformed personnel can be and the lies used against SSG Marquis to threaten her from speaking out. The criminal justice system and Child Protective Services were used against her in retaliation. This toxic behavior is embedded deeply into our military and we learn how deep it goes in order to silence victims.  This interview is set to inform folks how corrupt bureaucracies and instituations can be in order to fulfill someone's sick agenda and intentions. As well as acknowledging there is a "good ol' boy" system everywhere you go, a code of silence, and connections hidden in plain sight to keep crimes and injustices from seeing the light of day.  If you are interested in speaking with Sandy, you may reach her at  SSG Sandy Marquis is searching for a high profile lawyer to help her case, any guidance is appreciated.  Survivors and honorably serving military personnel have your back and will see it through Sandy and her children get justice!

Crossover Event | Shelly Klingerman - Project Never Broken | with The Protectors Podcast
Shelley Klingerman joined Jesse and Jason to discuss the loss of her Detective brother to a senseless ambush, starting Project Never Broken to help those dealing with loss & grief, women’s safety issues, and tons more.  Shelley also discusses attending citizen training to get a glimpse into the policing world from responding to threats to dealing with individuals with mental health problems. About Shelley: Shelley Klingerman is a successful entrepreneur, author, marketing professional, and documentary film producer. She is a graduate of Indiana State University and the mother of three children who inspired her to make the documentary Terror in American Schools: Are Your Kids Safe? The film outlines threats and vulnerabilities to our schools, and what can be done to increase security for the nation’s children. During her research for the film, and from her two decades of working for a large global firm, Klingerman began to understand the need to be vigilant and aware of her surroundings in everyday situations. This sparked a passion to help others learn what they should be aware of when traveling and living their day-to-day lives, and how they can prepare and protect themselves. She compiled her insights — which have been featured in The New York Times — into Vigilance: The Savvy Woman’s Guide to Personal Safety, Self-Protection Measures, and Countermeasures (Niche Pressworks, 2019). She received Situational Awareness Specialist certification in 2021 and is currently attending the FBI’s Citizen’s Academy. This episode brought to you by Faraday Defense and Health To The Rescue.
