Listener Feedback Keeps Us Going

2021-09-26T19:13:34-07:00September 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 [...]

Father’s Day Special

2020-06-21T06:54:17-07:00June 21st, 2020|

Years ago I also produced and hosted a program called "Daily Male" that focused upon helping young people grow up into strong adults. This is an interview conducted with my Father.

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

2020-05-14T19:20:23-07:00May 14th, 2020|

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. Then they came for the churches and I said nothing because I am agnostic When they arrested the surfers I did not speak out because I don’t live near the ocean Then they came for my tenured professor’s salary and there was no one left to speak [...]

Weaponizing the Influencers?

2020-03-17T10:31:30-07:00March 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 [...]

The “Other” Greatest Generation

2019-10-28T16:44:58-07:00March 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 [...]

My Take on my “Take” from the Military

2019-10-28T16:44:58-07:00October 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 [...]

Peace Officers Memorial Day

2019-10-28T16:44:58-07:00May 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 [...]

Be Prepared – Active Shooter Situations

2019-10-28T16:44:58-07:00February 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 [...]

“Sometime” Never Comes

2019-10-28T16:44:58-07:00November 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 [...]

Thank YOU! Please Keep Spreading the Word!

2019-10-28T16:44:58-07:00August 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 [...]
