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 [...]

“Sometime” Never Comes

November 21st, 2017|

Claire O'Brien Photo Credit: Tim Hynds, Sioux City Journal “We should have you on the show sometime.”  This week that became my least favorite phrase. It has been four years since I stepped up to assure that the messages of American Warrior Radio would not go silent upon the untimely death of the program’s founder Dave Sitton. My initial decision was driven by passion for the message, not business sense.  Many listeners and guests are surprised to learn that the radio station does not compensate me for broadcasting the show. Quite to the contrary, I pay them for [...]

Thank YOU! Please Keep Spreading the Word!

August 30th, 2017|

American Warrior Radio just surpassed 100,000 visitors for the year! When I revived the program following the founder's untimely death, with absolutely ZERO knowledge of doing a radio show, I was inspired by his mission; to educated and inform our population about those who protect us on both the home front and abroad. I have no idea that we would see this kind of progress and am very pleased we are reaching a national audience now. Please keep spreading the word!  If you have an idea about a story that needs to be told, please send us a note to: [...]

Havok Journal Update – Scott Faith

May 14th, 2017|

Havok Journal editor Scott Faith checks in to share updates on some of the issues & articles from their website.  The writings at Havok Journal are compelling, interesting and sometimes humorous. This “buffet for the brain” discussion delves into several issues.  We begin with a “how not to make military friends segment” by sharing the story of an east coast auctioneer who advertised a big sale of household goods/personal property of military members who were stationed overseas.  While the auction house later clarified this was abandoned property and they had followed all requirements for notification of the property owners, the [...]

Host on the Hot Seat

May 7th, 2017|

BBG with John Eslinger at his Honorary Commander "Retirement" I thought the whole reason for having a guest host was so that I could take the occasional weekend off - but John Eslinger had other ideas. In the nearly 30 years I have been supporting the military, I always knew that it was the right thing to do but never gave much thought to what led me down this path or the influences it has had on my life. John challenges me by putting ME in the hot seat and quizzing me on the factors that led to [...]
