304 – Nick Richardson – Greater Veterans Spokane

Nick is a U.S. Army Veteran. He served on the Paladin M109 Mobile Artillery Howitzer. He moved back to the U.S. after being medically separated.

Nick got out and faced many of the same challenges as other Veterans returning to civilian life. This led him to start Great Veterans Spokane as a way to meet needs quickly.

I met Jane through Althea Williams’, She Vets It Clubhouse. I found Jane to be a wealth of information about Veterans Benefits and I have learned a lot from her.

Jane is third generation U.S. Army. She got out and has never stopped serving her fellow Veterans in Wisconsin and wherever there is a Veteran in need.

Thank you Jane for reaching out to me and reminding us all that we can continue to serve others even if we are out of uniform.

301 – Tony Owen – Operation Vet Now

I met Tony through Alan Lacerda’s Thank Me for My Service Podcast. Tony is USAF Ret. and started Operation Vet Now.

Operation Vet Now works to improve the overall wellness of Veterans regardless and where and how they served. As I learned about the Veteran Athlete Ambassadors, the aspect of being where Veterans are to serve them is a much-needed approach. I am looking forward to talking with OVN’s Veteran Ambassadors to learn more.

You can go to https://opvetnow.org/ to find out more and help the mission. Thank you for talking with me Tony.

300 – Mistress Carrie

300 – Mistress Carrie

Yes, Oscar Mike Radio drops on Thursday, but for #300 it is dropping on Oscar Mike Radio’s birthday which is July 16th. So this Saturday #300 is dropping with a two-hour show featuring Mistress Carrie!

Mistress Carrie came on Oscar Mike Radio for number 67 when I was still figuring out how to do podcasting. During number 300, you will discover how a media professional like Mistress Carrie continues to hone her craft while exploring new opportunities. Learning never stops.

Mistress Carrie was a DJ on 107.3 WAAF FM until 2020 when the station was sold. She started doing Cocktails in the War Room during COVID-19 and still does it on Tuesdays at 8 PM.  I have gained lifelong friends and a family in every sense of the word. Come join us!

The Mistress Carrie Podcast is growing, and you can listen to conversations with amazing Rock artists. The Mistress Carrie Podcast drops Wednesdays at midnight EST. The Joe Satriani podcast was my favorite as I have been listening to Joe shred for a long time!

As Mistress said the easiest way to connect with her show and what she is doing is www.mistresscarrie.com. You can get all the news, Sit Reps, upcoming concerts, and cool merchandise on her store at the website. Get connected!

As I start with the next show, I want to say thank you Mistress for coming on and encouraging me as I continue to work to make Oscar Mike Radio grow. I can’t wait to see what happens with us both and appreciate everything you have done for me.
