297 – Julie Rojee – SSG Matthew Pucino Foundation

I met Julie a couple of years ago and we talked about her cousin Matthew who lost his life in Afghanistan.  I learned a lot about his service to our country and the legacy his family works to keep alive.

Matthew’s family came together to create the SSG Matthew Pucino Foundation. The goal is to keep Matthew’s memory alive by providing help to those Veterans in need.

296 – Alex Jimenez – AJ Nashville

I was asked the question, “How can civilians get involved to advocate for our military and veterans?”. I told the person that Alex Jimenez and what he does with his business, AJ Nashville is the blueprint other civilians can follow.

I met Alex Jimenez at his presentation of the Echelon Front Leadership Class conducted by U.S Navy Seal Andrew Paul. Alex collaborated with Operation Stand Down Tennessee to present this event.

Alex is a mortgage broker. He started with Veterans in 2007 and is now a certified military mortgage boot camp instructor for the state of Tennessee. His passion to help Veterans comes from being in a military family. This passion is evident in every facet of his business. As Alex said his website is the “hub” to connect with him. Go to www.ajnashville.com to find out more about Alex and what he does. He also has a podcast on SoundCloud, so get connected

295 – Dave Rogers – Cooking with a Veteran


Long before he became the Tennesee VFW State Commander, Brian Walker asked me to talk with Dave Rogers. Dave was living in NY and cooking for his VFW post. It was from there that he started streaming his cooking.

Growing up in New York, Dave started cooking early in life. He joined the National Guard and supported his home state during 9/11. Medically separated due to his service, Dave had to find himself again. He started cooking as a way to heal.

Cooking for others gave Dave a sense of purpose. He then worked to develop his Cooking with a Veteran show. Contact Dave as he is looking for sponsorship as he grows his show.

Make sure you check out these links to follow Dave

292 – Gina Alderman – Veteran Unchained

Gina served active duty and retired from the US Navy after 28 years of service as a Hospital Administrator with a wartime specialty in Medical Plans and Operations.

Finding her purpose was challenging after retirement, but Gina found a group of women Veterans and found a new course with Veterans Unchained. It is an anthology written by 18 different women Veterans that discusses their stories of loss, trauma, healing, and being unchained.

Veterans Unchained is available now from Amazon! Click this link to get the eBook – https://amzn.to/3ls7POY – It is $1.99, and the proceeds will go to the Rugged Warrior Healing Coalition. A nonprofit for Veteran’s focused on transcending suffering through education, connections, and personal.

Thank you, Gina, for talking with me. I have learned so much from you and the other women Veterans.

You can connect with Gina through Facebook or LinkedIn. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Rugged-Warrior-Healing-Coalition-111745114754044/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/gina-alderman-4a5b619b
