During a Cocktails in the War Room Family Zoom Meeting and my good friend David, “Vito” Brito says, “Travis, Jesse James Dupree would be a good guest for your show. He has done a lot for Veterans.” I knew this to be true because when I went to Tennessee for then-State Commander Brian Walker’s Fundraiser, I was told that Jesse was a true supporter of the VFW and Veterans. I reached out and spoke with Lynn Rolf, Director of Programs at Veterans of Foreign Wars, (He is going to be on #315), and then I had a time scheduled to talk with the man himself.
Jackyl was taking the stage by storm when I was in the Marine Corps. We would play “Headed for Destruction” when Charlie Battery rolled out. We all knew what Jackyl was about and that was just fine by us.
Talking with Jesse, I realized that his desire to help Veterans comes from a real place. He talked about his work with the VFW’s Unmet Needs program and how it impacts Veterans’ lives. Jesse said that everyone can do something that can help others or Veterans. He has taken elements from Jackyl, American Outlaw Spirits MIXER, and Might Loud, and used everything to help Veterans in need. I believe that is the lesson. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are in life. I learned that anyone has the capability to make a change.
