233  – Jim Musgrave – Home Defense Bar

233 – Jim Musgrave – Home Defense Bar

Jim Musgrave served in the U.S. Army for 20+ years and retired as a First Sergeant. After retiring, Jim worked in a couple of different businesses before developing a different kind of home defense product.

Home Defense Bar (https://homedefensebar.com/) is a system that is 100% made in the USA by a Veteran Owned Business. Jim had an idea and worked to perfect a security system that was easy to install, operate, and add a layer of protection to one’s home.

The story of Jim transitioning out of the Army and then into what he is doing is similar to what many Veterans experience. The difference here is that Jim never quit and always kept working through the challenges of bringing a product to market.

I am going to evaluate the Home Defense Bar’s effectiveness. Jim is betting that I will not be able to compromise his system:)

You can order the Home Defense Bar directly from https://homedefensebar.com/.

Thank you Jim for talking with me! I look forward to testing your system!

232 – Chris Turner – Hearts for Warriors

232 – Chris Turner – Hearts for Warriors

Like Tarrish Potter, Marine Veteran Chris Turner performed a month ago at the 2021 Tennessee Veteran Launch Event. He is coming back Friday February 12th to headline the Hearts for Warriors Event at The Boondox in Columbia, TN.

After we both had a chuckle about Jodie, we talked about how lessons learned in the Marine Corps apply to being in a band and going through good and bad times together. A leader has to be at the front and set the example. A leader also has to own the mistakes and issues at all times.

One of the songs you will hear Friday night was co-written by Navy Veteran Heather Clark. Getting to write this song with Heather has been a journey. They can’t wait to perform it for the first time February 12th.

I really enjoyed getting to listen to Chris talk about how his music and non-profit work go hand in hand with his purpose in life and music. Thank Chris for talking with me, I can’t wait to hear you perform again!

You can find out more about Chris by going to www.christurnermusic.com

231 – Tarrish Potter – Hearts for Warriors

Tarrish Potter was first on Oscar Mike Radio a month ago. We met through her support of the 2021 Tennessee Veterans Launch Event.

It was at The Boondox that Tarrish first performed the song Unknown Soldier she wrote with her mother. It was surprise at the end of her set and the whole crowd got quiet when Tarrish told us the story about how this song came to be. She has some new music she will be performing at the Hearts for Warriors Event February 12th 2021 at The Boondox in Columbia, TN.

Additionally Tarrish is working on a new EP and a music video abouit Luke Bryan that will all be in motion this year. Does anyone know who Luke Bryan is????? 😉

Thank you for talking with me Tarrish.

230 – Heather Clark – Hearts for Warriors

Heather Clark was just on Oscar Mike Radio. She was on for 226 – Namaslay. She has been nothing but Oscar Mike since we talked last month. So I had her back on to talk about her support for the Hearts for Warriors Event February 12th, 2021 at The Boondox.

Hearts for Warriors is an event to support Veterans artists in the Nashville area. COVID-19 has hit the music industry hard. Michelle Baxter who was on 229, is coordinating the entire event and my colleague Danielle Rocco and I will emcee.

Not only is Heather performing a song she co-wrote with Chris Turner, she has a diverse set of goals she is working to accomplish in the near future. It is amazing to watch fellow Veterans pursue their purpose. I believe that Heather has her purpose, and we are all getting a front row seat for her story.

Thank you Heather! You can watch Heather and Chris premiere their song at the Hearts for Warriors Event.

229 – Michelle Baxter – Hearts for Warriors

229 – Michelle Baxter – Hearts for Warriors

I met Michelle Baxter at the 2020 Irreverent Warriors Benefit held at The Boondox in Columbia, TN. Michelle is the Director of Booking for MC1 Nashville and Road Katz Agency. She has done a lot of work with Veterans who are transitioning into musicians. Chris Turner is an example of such an artist.

Michelle has been working hard to coordinate the Hearts for Warriors event on February 12th, 2021. This event is being held at The Boondox in Columbia, TN. All proceeds are going to benefit Veterans Artists. There will be BBQ being sponsored by JJs BBQ of Columbia, TN as well as raffles and other prizes! This is a great way to see artists up close and personal while having a great time.

I want to thank Michelle for coming on to talk with me. Danielle Rocco and I am looking forward to seeing this be another successful event!

228 – Sara – Appalachian Trail

228 – Sara – Appalachian Trail

I met Sara through the Friday Night Masshole Vets (https://www.facebook.com/MassholeVeterans) Zoom Call. It is where a bunch of the Veterans in the Masshole Region (New England) get together to socialize. It has been a great way to connect and meet other Veterans.

We were all hanging out one night when Sara started talking about hiking the Appalachian Trail. I started asking questions and realized that this wasn’t just talk. Sara wanted to use this experience and time to think. It also became clear that Sara sees a goal as a challenge and goes after it with everything she has.

Just learning about the equipment Sara is going to carry for more than 2200 miles was fascinating. I thought for sure she was going to use military gear to do the hike and found out there are vast differences between what we carried during our service and what is considered good for civilians.

I left the conversation with a sense that Sara is excited to go and be a part of nature. And while she is not wandering, achieving this goal will bring a new perspective on life and what she wants to do.

Thanks for talking with me Sara, I will meet you at the finish.

227 – Daniel Field – Metal & 40K

227 – Daniel Field – Metal & 40K

It may not look it, but Daniel and I have a lot in common. There are three things that unite us as brothers in arms. We served in the Marine Corps, we like heavy metal music, and we love Warhammer 40K. Daniel created a Facebook and MeWe group called VetsRock. That is how we met. It is a place where if you listen to or play rock and roll or heavy metal you can join in the fun. He was surprised when I joined and we started talking music. We met in person at the 2020 Irreverent Warriors Boston Halloween Party. Daniel showed up as Thor and crushed it. As we said in the conversation, a big thanks to Gladys Morgan for putting on that event. It was a great time. It was there that we started talking about about Warhammer 40K or 40K to all the players and fans. Daniel plays the game, but I like the lore. Just sitting there at the party or the Masshole Veterans Zoom Calls and shooting the breeze brought me back to many conversations in my 5-Ton in desert as we were pulling our HAWK gear. It was a good time. I want to do more of these. I know my show has been purpose driven, but doing this helped bring me back into alignment that sometimes all we need is someone just talk with about things we enjoy. Can’t wait to talk with you again Daniel. Next concert in town we are in the pit! Ave imperator!

226 – Heather Clark – Namaslay

226 – Heather Clark – Namaslay

I met Heather Clark at the 2020 Irreverent Warriors Nashville Hike on September 11th. She is a Navy Veteran. It was early morning after the event at The Boondox and Heather was offering a yoga class for Veterans. While I didn’t exactly get my Namaste on I could see that there were benefits to what Heather was teaching. I say benefits because these were yoga poses based on drills I done with firearms training in and out of the Marine Corps. I was hooked. Since then Heather has been Oscar Mike. She is starting her own company and is working to make yoga more accessible to veterans. She hosts the 7 Echo Podcast on YouTube and has many other things in the works. You can see Heather perform with Chris Turner (www.christurnermusic.com) at The Boondox February 12th 2021 for the Hearts for Warriors Event. Yoga was just the start and I can’t wait to see what she does next!

225 – Judy Skilling – High Performance Coach

225 – Judy Skilling – High Performance Coach

When people think coaching, they often think of sports or athletic coaching. Especially when “High Performance” is used as the coaching nomenclature.

Judy Skilling was a Navy Corpsman, and after leaving the Navy discovered that helping people gave her a sense of purpose that she couldn’t get in other career fields. She found that the principles in the High Performance Coaching Platform could help people attain their personal and professional goals.

Like Heather Hargrove, I found that Judy takes a proactive approach to identifying her client’s needs and giving them the tools for lifelong success. If you are stuck in the proverbial rut personally and professionally go to www.judyskilling.com to learn more. I can’t wait to have Judy back on Oscar Mike Radio. We just barely scratched the surface of the High Performance Coaching Platform. Thank you Judy!

224 – Tarrish Potter – Red, White, & Ice

224 – Tarrish Potter – Red, White, & Ice

January 16th Tarrish Potter will be performing at The Boondox (https://the-boondox.business.site/) in Columbia, TN to support the launch of L United.

Tarrish has literally been performing all her life. Whether with her family or being a child actor, Tarrish’s experiences eventually led her out to Nashville.

Connecting her music to someone listening is one of the most rewarding aspects of being artist Tarrish told me.

When I asked her about family connections to the military, there was a look of pride when she told me about her family’s service across generations. Tarrish is honored to use her music to support those who have served.

Despite all the challenges that came from COVID-19, she is looking forward to songwriting, recording, touring in 2021.

I have enjoyed getting to talk to all the country music artists that are supporting L United. Thanks for coming on Oscar Mike Radio.
