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, [...]

Peace Officers Memorial Day

May 15th, 2018|

Imagine if I told you that I would pledge to protect you and your family for 20-30 years. That I would work weekends, holidays and all hours of the day or night. I would miss birthdays, anniversaries and kids’ soccer games so you could enjoy those special times with your family. If you needed something, just make one phone call and I would be there. If there was ever danger or a threat, I would run TOWARD the danger so that you could retreat safely.  And, if..God forbid…a situation called for me to put my own life at risk to [...]

Be Prepared – Active Shooter Situations

February 18th, 2018|

Our nation struggles with another mass shooting. The answer to what drives these individuals to wreak carnage upon the innocent and what we can do to mitigate future attacks is a complicated and multi-faceted discussion. As we mature we find that many of life’s issues are NOT black and white and cannot be resolved with a simple, quick or knee jerk solution. American Warrior Radio is not the forum to debate this issue. However, I WAS a Boy Scout. And the motto I first learned upon entry to that organization applies to many situations in life; Be Prepared. While you [...]

Innovations from World War II – Craig Suter

November 26th, 2017|

Innovations made during the Second World War are still with us today – and some of them may surprise you!  A really entertaining and enlightening chat with Craig Suter, author of “The Inventor’s War; The Durable Ideas and Innovations of World War Two.” In order to find information for this compilation Craig had to read over 450 other books, period magazine stories and even research old newspaper advertisements. Some of these innovations came about due to an obvious need; pressurized cabins so that bombers could fly above enemy anti-aircraft fire, sunscreen for the troops in the withering Pacific campaign and [...]
