Advocacy for Veterans – Joshua Hosler

2021-03-29T09:52:26-07:00March 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 [...]

Submarine Sea Stories – Kevin Loewe

2021-03-08T22:51:34-07:00March 8th, 2021|

Submarine Veteran Kevin Loewe admits his initial motivation for joining the Navy did not spring from patriotism or high ideals; he just needed a job. But he came to love submarine service, spending most of his 20 active duty career in the "silent service". Kevin served on several submarines including fast attack boats and ballistic missile submarines. On his very first deployment, the relief sub was delayed and they ended up spending 91 days submerged. "The only thing we had [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

“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 [...]

Havok Journal Update – Scott Faith

2021-02-01T20:15:31-07:00May 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 [...]
