261 – We Got Your Six

261 – We Got Your Six

I talked with actors Danny Zanelotti and Greg Washington, and singer Emma Gutierrez about a film they created called, “We Got Your Six”. This film is entered into the 2021 Prizefest. You can go to https://prizefest.com/tickets/ and if you are like me and can’t make it to Shreveport, you can browse down to “Film Prize (Online Screenings) watch “We Got Your Six” and Vote! This would be a great way to support these Military Veteran Actors and Filmmakers.

Danny and Greg are military Veterans who have experienced firsthand the effects of PTSD has on those who served. They wanted to make something that would connect with civilians, Active Duty Service Members, and Veterans alike.

Listening to Emma describe what it was like to lend her voice to support the film shows that we can’t judge younger people based on their age. There is a real desire in our youth to learn more and support those who are serving and have served.

A ticket to the Film Prize is $30.00 which allows you to watch all the films, or you can get a VIP Pass for $350.00. I will be online watching!

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.

165 – Jim Tough 600 – 22 for 22 Charlie Mike

Jim Tough has been doing pushups for 600 Days to raise awareness about Veterans Suicide and the harm PTSD does to people. It is more than just pushups though, Jim relays an inspirational message to people who need to hear it. Sometimes these messages are a NCOs proverbial boot in the south end but they are from the heart. I have learned a lot from listening to the messages of the day.

Jim doesn’t do these for the attention. The goal is to get to a point where he doesn’t have to do them at all. The need is real. Please do not use a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

Andrew Farrer reached out to me on Instagram about coming on Oscar Mike Radio. Come to find out he had met Scott Libby who has been on Oscar Mike Radio and asked if I would talk with him about the Nashville, TN Silkies Hike.

Irreverent Warriors was founded by Captain Donny O’Malley USMC Ret., and Sergeant Ryan Loya in 2015. They believed that humor could heal a person. https://www.irreverentwarriors.com/about/ Read the story about how this organization is using comradeire to prevent Veterans’ suicide.

Andrew went on a couple of hikes and wanted to do one in Nashville. He has been working since January to coordinate the hike in Nashville. Right now he has 150+ hikers signed up. He is working to make the hike a great experience and is already looking for ward to doing on in 2020.

The first part of this podcast, Andrew was candid about his situation and how he got to certain places in his life. In a way, this hike is a way to leave the past behind and turn over a new life.

Listening to Andrew talk, I can tell you that this is the reason to Oscar Mike Radio. Andrew had bad things happen to him and made bad choices, but he is looking stay sober and show other people that you can change your life at anytime if you put in the work. It is a great story, and I can’t wait to meet Andrew one day. He is Oscar Mike.
