    Desert Storm POW Jeff “Tico” Tice

    Operation Desert Storm would be Jeff “Tico” Tice’s first opportunity to fly combat missions.  Things didn’t turn out as well as planned. On his second combat mission of the conflict, a last minute mechanical issue forced Jeff to switch aircraft and didn’t allow time for his good luck tradition of spitting into the plane’s exhaust. On the second day of the Desert Storm "Shock & Awe" campaign Jeff’s F-16 was hit by an Iraqi surface to air missile.  He would become one of 23 prisoners of war from that conflict, enduring 45 days in captivity. Between 9 and 12 missiles [...]

    About American Warrior Radio

    ONLY 1% OF OUR POPULATION SERVES OUR NATION IN THE MILITARY

    Even fewer have taken the oath to protect us on the home front. The mission of American Warrior Radio is to bridge the gap of understanding between those who took the oath and the rest of the civilian population. We do so by telling the stories of the men & women in our military/first responder communities… and those who support them.

    MEET YOUR HOST

    Ben Buehler-Garcia never served in the military or carried a badge. This is why he considers it his duty to support those who have.

    For nearly three decades he has volunteered with several initiatives to support military and first responder families including the Tucson Chamber Military Affairs Committee, the 9/11 Never Forgotten Tower Challenge Foundation, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, USS Tucson 770 Club, the Tucson Community Cares Foundation and as Honorary Commander for the 12th Air Force/Air Forces Southern.
