About Us

The Squad Room is a podcast devoted to optimizing the physical, mental, and emotional health and wellness of police officers. We tackle any subject that might improve law enforcement wellness and the commitment to ourselves, our loved ones, and the communities we serve and protect. The podcast has three elements: 1) Interviews with subject matter experts who can share knowledge with cops on how to live a better life; 2) Interviews with inspirational active duty and retired law enforcement, and 3) a documentary of the show's host Garrett TeSlaa, a sworn deputy sheriff, as he attempts to apply these lessons learned to his own life. Garrett will report back on progress he has made, tips for achieving your own success, and lessons learned.

107: Your Mindset is Everything with POW Capt. Charlie Plumb | Cultivating Resilience, Gratitude & Awareness

Five days before he was scheduled to finish his tour in Vietnam, U.S. Navy F4 Phantom pilot Capt. Charlie Plumb was shot down on his 75th combat mission over enemy territory. He spent the next 2,103 days (almost 6 years) in an 8×8 foot cell as a Prisoner of War, tortured and beaten in the infamous Hanoi Hilton. During nearly 6 years of captivity, Charlie shared cells with Sen. John McCain and worked as the right-hand to Admiral James Stockdale where he helped lead the resistance to their captors. In this episode, you’ll learn: * How Charlie developed his personal Code of Conduct. * When Charlie was shot down, broken, bleeding and in immense pain that wasn’t even the bad news. * What he learned about leadership from being tortured.* Why the POWs had a lower rate of PTSD and stress-related issues than other veterans, and how their mindset saved their lives. * Why a positive attitude can be dangerous to your health. * How Charlie learned the Stoic ideas of accepting reality. Charlie has been awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Legion of Merit, two Purple Hearts, the Presidential Unit Citation, POW Metal , the Vietnam Service Medal and others. In 2010 he was elected into the National Speakers Association Hall of Fame.
