Episode 123 – Veteran Owned Veteran Operated with Jonathan Gosselin
I love getting to talk with Veterans who have gotten out and started a business or non – profit. In many cases, the work required to remake oneself is daunting and it is hard on a good day.
Jonathan Gosselin is an Army and Navy Veteran. He owns and operates Veteran Owned Veteran Owned Printing. Check out his website https://vovoprints.com/ and you can get an idea of what he does. Let me put it to you like this, there isn’t much Jonathan Gosselin can’t do for you. I listed item after item that I wanted to have Oscar Mike Radio on and he said he could do it.
So what John and I wanted to do was Livecast from his store. He is doing a clothes drive for Veterans and has a lot of promotions going on for Christmas. I was pumped. John had done work on my logo and we had talked about doing something different for VOVO and Oscar Mike Radio.
What we decided to do is have me come down to his store (VOVO is located at 1540 Bedford St.
Abington, MA) and LiveCast. I have not done many of these, but I want to do more of this kind of work because I learn so much from getting away from my static location.
I had a lot of fun, and learned a lot about how a person like Jonathan can use what he has learned in the military to make it in the business world. He is helping me with some aspects of Oscar Mike Radio, but the real story here again is his clothes drive and willingness to take care of the customer regardless of their need.
Oscar Mike Radio will be doing more of these remote livecasts in 2019. I am looking forward to coming back to VOVO and seeing what else John has working in his store. You won’t want to miss it. We are On the Move!
Mistress Carrie is a DJ for WAAF in Boston, MA. She came on Oscar Mike Radio for Episode 62. Click here for (OMR Episode 62 Link) for the podcast. We had talked about all the trolls who blew up over a picture of her and Senator Elizabeth Warren. The whole thing went way out of proportion and people were talking all kinds of crazy stuff about how Mistress Carrie didn’t care for Veterans. Well, suffice to say she went scorched earth on that idea! At the end of the podcast she told me she was working on the top secret mission would update me later.
Fast forward to March, and we setup a time to talk again. Suffice to say she got a big welcome to life in the military! Hurry up and wait to go nowhere fast!!!
All kidding aside, when you understand what was required to get ready to go on this mission, to get the no go order at the last minute was a big let down to say the least. Listening her talk about what it took to go, much less execute, you can see that this wasn’t a publicity stunt. She genuinely cares about those who are in the military and veterans.
My question is I wonder what will be next for her?
The reason I am doing this as two parts is once we got done talking about her latest mission, the conversation kept going and, I didn’t want to cut it. So I will do the second part of the conversation in a couple weeks.
How’s it going everyone? I will ask the question this week. The OMR logo has classic look that has been here since day one. I needed to update some things and my producer – Sinista1 a.k.a Keith Hayes asked me to try to use green/gold combination and see what happens. The image on the left is the idea for the new color scheme. The artists is going to incorporate some black, but this is direction I am looking at going.
What do you all think? If you want to sound off about this, let me know – firstname.lastname@example.org or on the Oscar Mike Radio Facebook Page
Introducing Megan Bruce
Like I said in my podcast, I was sipping on my Polar Mandarin Orange Seltzer when I saw this video hit my OMR Facebook Feed – [embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nOynz3dcqQ[/embedyt] – I thought this was some comedienne trying to make a name for herself. I was wrong, and so it is with great pleasure that I want to introduce Megan Bruce, Marine Veteran and comedienne who has no problem going scorched earth on someone. I am hoping to have her on Oscar Mike Radio, but until then like the video and hit that subscribe button to stay in the know. OMR sends, you won’t be sorry. Check out the Megan Bruce Facebook Page.
The Word – Admiral Dewey
Dewey Square on a sunny summer day.
What do you know about Dewey Square? Most people will tell you that it was the site of Occupy Boston, and not give a second thought to it’s namesake. Did you know that Dewey Square by South Station in Boston was named after a Navy Legend? Admiral George Dewey is the only Naval Officer ever to receive the rank of Admiral of the Navy. Looking through Admiral Dewey’s career and realized I couldn’t cover everything in 30 minutes.
I wanted to raise awareness about a name that is associated with protesters who trashed Dewey Square. I know because everyday of the Occupy Boston Protest I walked by it twice a day.
Admiral Dewey was an American Hero. More than anything else, I want to find out more about other landmarks that are named after military veterans.
