I hope you all had a safe and Happy New Year! I wanted to take this episode to talk about what I am going to do with Oscar Mike Radio for 2017. About this time last year, Oscar Mike Radio was becoming an idea, so I am excited to see what will happen in 2017.
One of the areas of focus for 2017 is talking to Active Duty or Veterans who are starting up their own businesses or Non-Profits. I want to share their stories to find out how and why these extraordinary people are embarking on their journeys. Some of my brothers and sisters in arms have been doing great things and taking risks with no more than an idea and the will to make it a reality. Their stories need to be heard.
I have had this idea bouncing around in my head for a while now. I wanted to write this story about “My Dad is a Zombie Biker”. I tried a couple of times to make this happen, but I never really took it anywhere. I am going to start writing a chapter of the story each week in the blog portion of Oscar Mike Radio. The story is told in 3 parts. You will have to check back throughout the year to find out what this is all about.
This process has gotten easier the more I do it. However, there are things I want to work on improving in 2017. I have taken the feedback I have received and have a list of things that I will improve in the coming year. It is my way of saying I want to perfect my craft.
Last but not least, I have a promise to keep. I told someone I would get into my Dress Blues that I wore when I was at my EAS. I got some work to do but I am going to make it happen.
There is a lot to do, but I welcome the challenge and have embraced the process. 2017 is going to be a great year!
