Veterans Matter – Ken Leslie

December 13th, 2020|

Helping homeless Veterans find housing is a passion Ken Leslie feels deep in his bones. He is the founder and “Chief Advocate Officer” for the non-profit Veterans Matter. While Ken never served in the military, at one time he himself was homeless and living off the streets. As a traveling standup comedian in the 1980’s Ken began to notice a greater number of homeless around the country.  This led him to start a homeless project in his hometown of Toledo. In 2007 John Mellencamp stopped by the tent city and invited all of the homeless to his concert. One of [...]

What If They Threw a Quarantine..And No One Came?

What If They Threw a Quarantine… And No One Came? by Ben Buehler-Garcia and Scott Faith  First they came for restaurants and bars, and I said nothing because I was not a waiter.

Weaponizing the Influencers?

March 17th, 2020|

WEAPONIZING THE INFLUENCERS What if I told you I could hamstring the world’s top super power without firing a single shot in anger? We may be seeing the blueprint for just such an action playing out at this moment. I am neither a physician nor a military strategist, but over the years I have developed a hobby of connecting seemingly unrelated dots, playing chess three dimensionally. What if COVID-19 actually stood for “Covert Internet Destruction” and they just mistyped the year? Indulge me in a “what if?”. What if the REAL virus was not the mean, drunk cousin of the [...]

The “Other” Greatest Generation

March 29th, 2019|

When one spends five and a half years interviewing Veterans from World War II through the present wars, common themes emerge; the chaos of war regardless of technology, the resilient comradery of those who fought together and the challenges to the human spirit and mind of processing the horror of war. These are things all Veterans share regardless of their generation. On National Vietnam War Veterans Day I was reminded of my talk with BG Burkett, whose crusade to counter the negative stereotypes of Vietnam Veterans led to the creation of a nation’s first law addressing Stolen Valor.  It struck [...]

My Take on my “Take” from the Military

October 2nd, 2018|

Change of Command season just wrapped up at my local military base.  This summer as in those past, I gathered with crowds large and small in a hangar or at the officer’s club to bid farewell to one leader while welcoming another to my community. It is always a bittersweet time for me. American Warrior Radio listeners are a sharp bunch, so let’s begin with a quiz; what is worse than pissing off a General?  Read on.. My entire adult life I have believed it is the duty of those of who never served to support those that do.  Hence, [...]
