SSG Sandy Marquis Speaks Out - Ft. Hood Retaliates

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

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.

Ep 41: Hot Girl Nikki

Ep 41: Hot Girl Nikki


An introduction to Nikki and Jess's friendship.  

The gals talk about how women have to overcome their own toxic behavior while not tolerating the projections of those who won't. 

Jess has been focusing on improving friendships and relationships in her life and came across a book which describes the phenomenology of women's behavior towards other women. The book is called Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman by Phyllis Chesler

Nikki and Jess are on the rise, growing and glowing physically, mentally, and emotionally.

With that being said, sometimes your growth can trigger something vile in other women.

We briefly discuss some of the ways women hurt each other and the drama that entails.

Quality over quantity. Friendships, relationships. Period.

The gals touch on relationships, Nikki mentions a book she is enjoying called The Rules of Love by Richard Templar which has helped her get to know herself and her partner. An intimate recommendation if you're into deep conversations.. 

If you enjoyed this episode, let us know!
