Bobby Henline – The “Well Done Comedian”

Bobby Henline could have given up.  But he didn’t. Now he uses humor to help others heal as well.

The Feres Doctrine – Richard Stayskal & Scott Huesing

The story of Richard Stayskal is by no means complete. The ending remains to be written. He survived a snipers’ bullet but is now fighting for his life against cancer and the bureaucracy. Richard Stayskal We need YOUR help to write the ending to this story. I take pride in show prep.  I read books before having authors on the show. I watch documentaries before we feature their producers. And, on occasion, we reject guests because they just don’t fit. But sometimes the best laid show outline doesn’t survive first contact with the guest. This turned out not [...]

The role of these Birddog pilots is described in his new book “Catkiller 3-2: An Army Pilot Flying for the Marines in Vietnam”. Ray and his fellow “Birddog” pilots flew the O-1, a military version of the Cessna. Perhaps not very sexy but the O-1 has been called the deadliest aircraft in the US inventory because of its ability to bring artillery and air support to bear upon the enemy.  [...]

Michael is a Machinist Mate which means he is responsible for maintenance and repairs of key components aboard the submarine. He was named Sailor of the Year for his steadfast commitment to vital repairs that allowed the USS Tucson to fulfill missions of national interest.
