It struck him that it would be interesting to do crime scene training on a movie set.  He ran the idea up the chain of command and before long was undertaking Operation [...]


Listener Feedback Keeps Us Going

September 26th, 2021|

One of the joys of hosting a radio show is getting feedback. Because American Warrior Radio broadcasts on multiple days in several markets, we don't take calls on the air. Apart from the AWR fan (who happens to also be a radio host) that texts me during interviews, feedback is never immediate. There IS the Phoenix listener who calls almost every week to discuss the episode that just aired. He always has valuable insights and I look forward to our regular chats.

Advocacy for Veterans – Joshua Hosler

March 29th, 2021|

Veteran advocacy is a passion for Joshua Hosler. That is why he and his fellow Veteran Anthony Archer founded Veteran Sheepdogs of America.  As disabled Veterans, they both have personal experiences within the VA system and recognized a gap that needed to be filled. Joshua served as an assistant platoon leader and bomb dog handler in the Marines. While he never had plans to enter the political arena, some of the things he saw overseas inspired him to get more involved when he left the Corps. “Seeing what the Afghani people felt after voting for the first time in their [...]
