2021 SOVA – Spooktacular Poker Run

2021 SOVA – Spooktacular Poker Run

Saturday, October 23rd, I went to 2021 Support our Veterans Association Spooktacular Poker Run after party held at The Downtown in Norton, MA.

I didn’t realize how much I missed doing these kinds of things. I haven’t really been able to do anything the last four months and when I have tried it has not gone well.

If you go to their Facebook Page, https://www.facebook.com/Support-Our-Veterans-Association-Inc-1529142627390153, you will see that SOVA’s mission is to help Veterans and Active Service Members with housing assistance. You would be surprised how many Active Duty Service Members have trouble with housing.

The 2021 Spooktacular Poker Run raised money to support the mission. I had a great time, and it was cool to see other groups come to support what SOVA is doing. Enjoy the pictures and next year I hope to be able to ride!

255 – 5 Years Old

255 – 5 Years Old

Five Years Old!!!! Hard to believe after all this time. And I tried something new. I believe in trying new things and this show is no exception.

This show marks where I am committing to integrating fully into the Restream Platform.

Using Restream is a big change where I can get the same or more work done in less time while engaging with people more.

I spent some time on this show thinking back and realize that the best is yet to come. I want to thank you all for your support of me and what Oscar Mike Radio is looking to do. Mission is in flight!

238 – Rise. Grind. Repeat

238 – Rise. Grind. Repeat

I met Roger Gindlesperger Jr. Through James Van Prooyen’s Veterans Virtual Cocktail Hour. Through this time, James has connected Veterans in Business to each other and I have been honored to have them on my show.

Roger talked about toothpaste. Specifically, a charcoal based toothpaste that wouldn’t harm people’s teeth. I was intrigued because oral health is important to me.

We talked about coming on Oscar Mike Radio and Roger asked about bring NFL Veteran Marques Ogden on to talk about Grind from a strategic standpoint. Marques has known Roger for a while and recently came on as Co-Owner of Grind Oral Care.

Rise. Grind. Repeat. it is more than a marketing tag-line for Roger and Marques. This mantra is a belief that anything worthwhile comes through disciplined focus.

I want to say thanks to Roger and Marques for coming on and talking about more than just toothpaste. The lessons learned in creating “G7” can be applied to other areas in life regardless if one a NFL or Military Veteran.

199 Massachusetts 54th Regiment – The Shaw Memorial

199 Massachusetts 54th Regiment – The Shaw Memorial

On May 31st, the Shaw Memorial was defaced. This monument was created to honor the memory and service of the Massachusetts 54th Regiment. The Massachusetts 54th Regiment was an all black infantry unit that served honorably during the Civil War.

I talked to Shawn Quigley from the National Parks Service in Boston. I learned so much about the Massachusetts 54th, and what this monument means to the African American community.

There are lessons around the Massachusetts 54th and the Shaw Memorial that resonate in today’s world. The Shaw Monument is being renovated at this time. I am looking forward to seeing its unveiling in 2021.

To learn more go to www.nps.gov/saga/learn/historyc…e-shaw-memorial.htm

Thank you Shawn for talking with me, I hope people will get a better appreciation of the service and sacrifices made by those who served in the Massachusetts 54th.

184 – My Military Story – Swim Qual

184 – My Military Story – Swim Qual

I continue my military story with #184 which is about swim qualification in the Marine Corps. Knowing how to swim is kind of important for any Marine. Also, one can’t graduate boot without passing a basic water qualification. I am not the best swimmer and treading water for four minutes seemed like an eternity. I just had to make slow, easy movements and keep breathing. Sounds simple enough, but panic is a laughing bastard when I let it take over my mind. If you are planning on joining the Marine Corps take some swimming lessons. It is only a week out of boot camp, but like range an important part of being a Green Amphibious Monster.
