Episode 69 – Thanksgiving Message 2016 Replay

I didn’t have any new insights for Thanksgiving this year. I still like my Thanksgiving story from Fort Bliss. Enjoy



Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are enjoying time with family and friends.

Question of the Week

“Who did you vote for president?” I have been asked that by more people than anything else with Oscar Mike Radio. As I explained in the podcast, I don’t want to bring that into this show. Veteran’s advocacy is Oscar Mike. Which is to say it is On the Move and On Mission regardless of who is in the Whitehouse.

The Word

I talk about Thanksgiving as a Private First Class. 21 years ago, I was at Fort Bliss, Texas and it was my first Thanksgiving away from friends and family. A Sergeant and his wife asked a bunch of us Marines over for Thanksgiving dinner. It was a great to get off base and be spoiled for a little while on a day when were all missing home.

The POG and GRUNT Compliant Dept 

They weren’t complaining so much this week as bickering what part of the turkey was the best. It doesn’t take them much to find something to argue over.

Unit Shout Out

This episode’s shout out goes to all active duty service members worldwide who can’t be with family and friends for Thanksgiving. I just want you all to know there are people out there who appreciate what you are doing for us everyday.

Upcoming Events

I wanted to get the word for out about Operation Wreaths for Veterans. It will be on Monday, December 5th.  I don’t have a time yet for the event, but I will update Oscar Mike Radio once I have a start time. I think this is a good thing to do honor Veterans who are no longer with us. Click on the link below to get involved.
