362 – Lee Kelley III – Look To The Warriors

Lee grew up in New Orleans and served as a Communications Officer in the U.S. Army. After getting out, Lee used his experiences to write about 12 Perspectives to Inner Peace. “Look To The Warriors” demonstrates how military experiences and services can be lessons to everyone regardless of the challenges they are facing. Talking with Lee, I learned that “Look to the Warriors” takes real military experiences from Lee and others and distills them into the 12 Perspectives. These perspectives allow someone who is not in the military to get an in-depth look at how adversity and challenges were turned into victories. You can get “Look to the Warriors: 12 Perspectives to Cultivate Inner Peace” on Amazon now (Link Below). https://read.amazon.com/kp/embed?asin… You can also find Look to the Warriors at Tactical 16 Publishing (https://tactical16.com/product/look-t…) and anywhere else books are sold. Find out more about Lee and his other books by going to http://leekelley4.com/ Thank you, Lee, for sharing about how Warriors can be an example of resilience and success in the face of adversity.

U.S. Navy Veteran Tony Price – Gold Star Foundation

U.S. Navy Veteran Tony Price – Gold Star Foundation

Tony served in the Navy and started his Veterans’ Advocacy in 2013.

He rides his motorcycle across the United States to bring comfort to Gold Star Families.

When Tony connects with Gold Star Families the time spent lets them know that they are not forgotten. If possible Tony will use the support given to the Gold Star Foundation to assist families where needed.

This conversation is another example of a Veteran taking what he has and using it to bring comfort to others. Gold Star Foundation is a non-profit and is funded through donations. Consider supporting Tony today.

355 – Colonel Bob Notch – Veterans Collaborative

355 – Colonel Bob Notch – Veterans Collaborative

I was introduced to Bob Notch through Michael Geary of Hellfish Haven. Michael had Bob on our W.A.R (We are Resilient) collaboration and Bob was on with his to talk about the Veterans Collaborative.  

Bob served in the Army and flew the UH-60 Blackhawk. Later in his Army career, he transferred to the Army Reserve where he finished his time in the military.

After serving he transitioned through a couple of civilian jobs until he was asked to be CEO of Veterans Collaborative.

According to the mission statement, “gathers targeted and current local and virtual event listings, information, resource trackers, and directories relevant to various service areas and resource networks. You can directly update the shared calendar appearing throughout the site, as well as resource trackers whenever possible. Making contributions increases the efficiency of outreach efforts and saves everyone in the network the energy of creating and maintaining various resource lists –– freeing up everyone’s time to focus on their individual missions and impact.”

I wanted to quote this because too many times Veterans Organizations hold onto the tools and information, they have instead of figuring out how to take what they have and work with other organizations to be better advocates for Veterans.

The concept of Veterans Organizations working together means that we can go further together. We learn in the military that no one fights alone, and it should be the same when we are advocating for Veterans. Let’s Collaborate

Thank you for coming on and talking with me Colonel.

353 – Ron Villareale – The Original Ghost Rider

353 – Ron Villareale – The Original Ghost Rider

April 23rd, I was at the Middleborough VFW filming with Richard Fitts Jr. and Arthur O’Callaghan for, “A Letter to M.I.A.s”. Setting up to film I was checking my gimbal when Richard Fitts Jr. asked me to meet this woman at a table. What was interesting was she had brought a lot of framed photos and documents to the filming.

She introduced herself and proceeded to tell me the story about her father, U.S. Navy Veteran Ron Villareale. Ron served during the Vietnam War. After the Vietnam War Ron was compelled to do something to bring attention to the fact that Americans had been left and forgotten as P.O.W.s and M.I.A.s.

Ron decided to ride his horse from across New England to Washington D.C. on his horse, American Thunder. The news clip heading says, “Ghost Riders for Forgotten of Vietnam. He didn’t want them to be forgotten. “No Man Left Behind”, meant something to him as he talked to those who came back from Vietnam.

After riding to Washington D.C., Ron decided more action was needed to keep the issue of his lost and missing brothers alive in people’s minds. He set out from New England and this time rode to California. Along the way, Ron met with politicians and other Veterans who all pitched in to help with the cause.

Watching Dawn show me Ron’s Paul Revere get-up, newspapers signed proclamations and letters, it became clear that a daughter’s love for her father has carried over into everything she does. Dawn cares about our active-duty service members, Veterans, and fellow Americans. Children watch what their parents do and we as parents set the example. We can all learn from what Ron did for us. Many of us are still looking for the 86,000 ghosts who have not been found.

If you want to connect with Dawn and her wellness work, go to Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/dawn.v.borges Thank you for sharing with us Dawn.

348 – Aaron Hale – E.O.D Fudge

348 – Aaron Hale – E.O.D Fudge

I would like to tell you that all of these are easy, and I have this down to science. However, my systems were acting up and I had a limited window to talk with him. There were people around me making sure my internet was up and I was apprehensive because I wanted to provide Aaron with a great experience.

I shouldn’t have worried at all. Just like E.O.D. Fudge, Aaron is smooth all the way through, and his story reminded me of how amazing people who have served in the military are and the power of resilience.

Aaron joined the Navy as a chef. That’s right, he cooked for sailors in the Navy and his love of cooking helped him excel. He wanted more so he left the Navy and joined the Army as an E.O.D Technician. Being an E.O.D Technician gave Aaron a renewed sense of purpose. He was injured protecting others and it changed his life.

After his injury, and separation, Aaron used his love of cooking to start making fudge. People liked it so much that he started selling it and so E.O.D. (Extra Ordinary Delights) Fudge was born. I can tell you that it is a good thing that I don’t live near Aaron because I would be camped out in his backyard so I could help with quality control. His creations are that good.

Go to https://eodfudge.com/ to learn about Aaron’s story and order some great fudge! Thank you for talking with me Aaron and showing us daily resiliency in action.
