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.

191 – Veterans Brotherhood V-M/C Cabin Fever Event

191 – Veterans Brotherhood V-M/C Cabin Fever Event

On February 29th the Veterans Brotherhood V-M/C had their annual Cabin Fever Event at the Bridgewater Portuguese Holy Ghost Society Club.

I enjoyed my time there watching all the bikers come together to support each other. Go to https://vbvmcma.com/ to find out more about the Veterans Brotherhood V-M/C. I want to say thank you to JK, The Reverend and Gunny for letting me come and support the event. I can’t wait to do it in 2021.

Can’t believe a month later events like this wouldn’t be allowed to take place.

190 Fort Devens Tough Ruck Team – 2020

I talk with an Army Veteran and two of my fellow Reedy’s Archery Veterans Team Marine Team Members about their mission for Tough Ruck 2020. One day before the 2020 Boston Marathon, this team will ruck 26.2 miles to honor Gold Star Families. You can find out more about their story by going to this website: https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/cam… Please consider helping them reach this important goal.

Currently the 2020 Tough Ruck is on hold due to Corona Virus. That hasn’t stopped this team from working to help Veterans.

186 – Jody 2020

186 – Jody 2020

In memory of Catherine Walker #186 came from the NY Post article on February 11th, 2020. See link below https://nypost.com/2020/02/11/wife-mu…

Catherine Walker’s husband had her killed by his lover in 2014. He wanted the $400,000.00 in insurance money. 6 years later justice was served. I can’t get over how Catherine was able to forgive her murderer before being killed.

Jody Podcasts are made to demonstrate the turmoil infidelity in the military cause for servicemember, their children and families. I like to make fun of Valentines Day, but in a way Catherine had love in her heart. How Catherine was able to do that has stayed with me. Her story is an example to me, and reminds me that infidelity is never a victimless crime.
