168 – Seeing the Moving Wall

168 – Seeing the Moving Wall

I met with Veteran Service Officer Ken Badertscher to learn more about The Moving Wall in # 162 – https://whoobazoo.com/oscarmike/2019/08/30/162-the-moving-wall-attleboro-ma/.

It was an honor to get to see The Wall and talk to people who worked so hard behind the scenes to make this happen. More important was being able to see all the people who came out to pay their respects to the ones who were lost during the Vietnam War.

167 – Danielle Rocco – Devoted to Soldier

167 – Danielle Rocco – Devoted to Soldier

I had the pleasure of talking with Danielle Rocco remote and on location. She is a Marine Mom, transformation coach, speaker and now author of, “Devoted to a Soldier.” She talked with me about her work with Veterans Advocacy.

The question has to be what hasn’t Danielle done? Professional ballerina, business owner, author, filmmaker, coach and now Veterans Advocate, Danielle believes anyone can make positive change in their lives at anytime.

Devoted to a Soldier is about develop strong relationships. The strongest being with one’s self. As I listened to Danielle talk about this during our time, I felt that I was on that path. Getting reminded of what I need to do daily was coaching at its best.

You can go to Danielle’s website – https://devotedtoasoldier.com/ to learn more about her documentary and Veteran’s Advocacy work.

165 – Jim Tough 600 – 22 for 22 Charlie Mike

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.

163 – Mark, the Reaper – Get REAPERFIED!

163 – Mark, the Reaper – Get REAPERFIED!

Don’t get clean, Get REAPERFIED!

Talking to Veterans who re-invent themselves never gets old. I met Mark a couple years ago, and he told me about his plan to launch Reaper Detailing and Powerwashing.

Fast forward to the present and Mark has literally become a Reaper against dirt in any form. Mark has a detailing and powerwashing business that is completely mobile. He hit me up about getting my motorcycle REAPERFIED. I said yes, and met him to go through the experience.

Now, I thought I could clean a motorcycle. I really did, but what I can do is nothing compared to what Mark did in 84 minutes. He showed me I was a rookie at best. I could use the chrome to shave with no problem. I asked Mark how he got started with detailing. He told me that he liked cleaning, and got a couple of supplies to start. Now, he is looking to grow his business and hopes to make it where Veterans can join him to be successful.

People ask me all the time if there are Veterans who have used what they learned in the service to make something different with their life. Mark, The Reaper, is a perfect example of someone starting small and working to fulfill his goals no matter the challenge or the weather. Don’t get clean, get the Reaper!

Sponsor Announcement

Mark wanted to support Oscar Mike Radio. I, in turn, wanted to support the Reaper and what he is going to for Veterans in 2020. Mark is Oscar Mike Radio’s next official sponsor. I want to thank Mark for this show of support. I can’t wait to see what we do together. Mark is the REAPER, GET REAPERFIED!
