198 – Sevins Grace Creations

I watched a show with Coach Danielle Rocco (www.devotedtoasoldier) and Sarah Fausett of Sevins Grace Creations. It is always good to learn about Veterans who are working at growing their own business. Sarah served in the U.S. Navy.

After serving, Sarah used her G.I. Bill to get get her degree and masters. However, she got into making custom cups that started taking off. She made one for me and I wanted to talk to Sarah about what it takes to start a business. This is where the conversation got interesting. Sarah said it is up to us Veterans to be proactive in our medical care, education and professional development. Being proactive will get us further than complaining about what we can or can’t do about a situation. This is a message that we in the Veteran Community need to listen to as we go through our lives after we serve.

Sevins Grace is a place where you can get some unique custom gifts for yourself or someone else. I love my cup and it keeps my iced coffee cold for hours.

Check out the links below and get on the order list for Christmas!

Thank you Sarah for coming on Oscar Mike Radio! Sevins Grace on

197 – Fran Capo

I saw Fran Capo on Coach Danielle Rocco’s show (www.devotedtoasoldier.com). I was struck by Fran’s passion for life. Also, there was this drive to work through things to create opportunities she wouldn’t have had otherwise. Fran also had some cool stories about performing for our troops.

We talked after Coach Rocco’s show and Fran listened to my voice-over demo. I asked her to come on Oscar Mike Radio because like Veterans it seems like Fran is continually re-inventing herself.

Once you get past Fran being a 9-time Guinness World Record Holder, you appreciate that there is willingness to embrace the unknown in a way that doesn’t accept anything less than action towards a goal. There is a lot to learn here, and I appreciated Fran coming on to talk with me.

You can check out Fran on Facebook Live every Monday & Wednesday 11 AM Eastern / 8 AM Pacific . To find out more about her books and other work go to www.francapo.com.

Thank you Fran!

196 – Sub Granny

This show came from a New 4 Jacksonville Article on June 8th 2020 (https://www.news4jax.com/news/georgia…).

In April 2018, Elizabeth McAlister age 80 was caught trespassing and trying to vandalize government property on Kings Bay Submarine Base. It is kind of funny, but not really. Elizabeth was one of seven defendants caught carrying hammers and baby bottles filled with their own blood. Baby bottles filled with their own blood? That right there made me ask several questions that didn’t go anywhere good.

I am all about protest, but I don’t see how this moves any kind of change forward. The truth is stranger than fiction, and never underestimate the will of an older woman. Mission in Flight

195 – Show Up!

195 – Show Up!

I had a hiring manager reach out to me in frustration that Veterans did not show up to job interviews. Did some reading and this article by Saxon Mardsen – Huggins of Recruit Shop(https://recruitshop.com.au/why-people-dont-show-up-for-interviews/) laid it out pretty well.

Looking for a job after active duty service can be tough and nerve wracking. Believe me, there are many people pulling for you when your resume comes across their desk. Nothing is more frustrating than getting a group of people to look at a military veteran’s resume, coordinate an interview only to have the veteran candidate not show up with no explanation. It happens more often than one thinks, and it is a bad look.

As I said in the show, there are many different resources out there to help you get ready for an interview. You completed military service. A job interview is a conversation. SHOW the ______ UP!

194 – Mattie C’s Sports for You & Me

it is always good getting to talk with other podcasters. Especially podcasters who are starting out with their craft. Matt Cameron is the creator and host of Mattie C’s Sports and You and Me Podcast.

Seeing Matt grow and talking with him about sports and the military is one of the best things about being a podcasters. It is always good to talk with civilians about how they feel about the military and veterans.

Matt was authentic about his respect and admiration for those who serve and have served our country. I like where Matt is going with his podcast and he is getting some great guests on his show. Go to https://www.facebook.com/MattieCsSpor… to get connected with what Matt is doing. Let’s do our next show at Article XV Brewing!

193 – Sgt. Slaughter

193 – Sgt. Slaughter

I read this article (https://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news…) in the Marine Corps Times by Geoff Ziezuiewicz. It was about Robert Remus who portrayed the professional wrestling character, Sgt Slaughter. The article goes into great detail about the fact that Robert never served in the military despite his claim that he did.

Next to taking advantage of a disabled Veteran, stolen valor is something that angers me. Claiming to have served in the Vietnam War is a slap in the face to all that did serve and the Gold Star Family Members of that war.

I feel that Robert should apologize and not do any appearances on military bases or for any military organization. He can be Sgt Slaughter, but he didn’t serve. I wonder if certain entities let this slide because having him at events was seen as a good look for the military and the WWE. I am going to try and ask him some of these questions. What do you think?
