185 – Mike “The Godfather” Damon of Vet Unite

185 – Mike “The Godfather” Damon of Vet Unite

Marine Veteran Mike Damon owned his PTSD. He is using what he learned in his journey to create a guide for anyone to use to conquer their inner battles. The guide is written like guides in the military are written. The principles are easy to understand and implement. Listening to Mike talk about his vision and intent for what he is trying to do makes me believe that there is truly a way to go to 0 for Veteran Suicide.

Mike would like to thank all his friends and family who have supported him on this journey. He also thanks Nolan Motorcycle Helmets (https://www.nolan-usa.com/) for their support of Mike and the Vet Unite Motorcycle! A big thanks to Article Fifteen Brewing (https://articlefifteenbrewing.com/) in Weymouth, MA for allowing me to record there. I don’t drink, but Mike Damon can tell you it was cool to be served a refreshing brew during the interview by Jenn! Also wanted to shout out to Justin Cherman of Thank you Popcorn for the great snacks. You are welcome for Thank You Popcorn!

The good things keep coming for Oscar Mike Radio. Army Veteran Josh Hallet does video production. He did the video editing and masters for #185 with his company Boston Veteran Technology. This is big step because it is the first time I let someone make an episode. Thank you Josh and I am looking forward to doing great things together.

Note: The Star Wars Movie in the background was playing for customers of Article Fifteen Brewing. It is in no way to be considered part of Oscar Mike Radio’s production of #185.

Dean and I getting some Freedom going!

Sometimes the whole key to this is to be ready. Andrew Farrer, who was on Oscar Mike Radio 158, (https://oscarmikeradio.com/2019/08/02/158-nashville-silkies-hike-with-andrew-farrer/) introduced me to Dean. A few weeks later, Dean was in my part of the country and we worked to make time to talk. I am glad I did.

Dean Wegner played hockey for West Point then went on to be an Army Aviator. He was fortunate enough to be a candidate for Ranger School, and successfully completed his career in the Army as a Ranger.

Dean worked in several different industries, apparel being one of them. He has this idea that clothing could be made in America again. I could not believe it when he told me that 3% of all clothing worn in America is actually made in America.

As I talked with Dean, I couldn’t help but be drawn into this simple idea that jobs could be brought back to America. While I think it is an uphill battle, I wanted to be a part of this journey. When Dean showed me the Freedom T-Shirt and socks, I knew that I wanted only one answer to, “Where is Oscar Mike Radio’s apparel made?”

You can find out more by going to https://www.authenticallyamericanbrand.us/. I want to thank Andrew for introducing us. Dean, I am looking forward to seeing how Authentically American and Oscar Mike Radio grow together.
