164 – VA Nurses at Greater Boston Stand Down

Veteran getting a hair cut!

I went to the 2019 Greater Boston Stand Down put on by the New England Center and Home for Veterans. I met some nurses from the Greater VA Medical Center and they started getting me right. Good stuff.

The Nurses Got Me!

160 – Questions

160 – Questions


Question 1

What do you think of the Marines who got caught smuggling people over the border?

I would say that idle hands are devils tools. This is a question I am asked often about situations like this. All I can say it is a combination of poor leadership, people who have no morals, and sorry excuses for Marines.

Question 2

When are you going to do another Jody Podcast?

Soon. I discussed why I do podcasts about infidelity in the military. Whether military or civilian, infidelity is not a victimless crime. Questions need to be asked when you see someone going through this.

Question 3

What has been your favorite podcast?

I don’t think I have a favorite podcast. There are aspects of podcasting that I really enjoy. My favorite thing is asking the questions that make people think.

Question 4

What do you think Veterans need?

I think need is constant. So whatever the need is, I believe the questions should be focused around connecting the Veterans to resources that already exist. People need to understand that making the connection between resource and Veteran is a difficult task at times .

Andrew Farrer reached out to me on Instagram about coming on Oscar Mike Radio. Come to find out he had met Scott Libby who has been on Oscar Mike Radio and asked if I would talk with him about the Nashville, TN Silkies Hike.

Irreverent Warriors was founded by Captain Donny O’Malley USMC Ret., and Sergeant Ryan Loya in 2015. They believed that humor could heal a person. https://www.irreverentwarriors.com/about/ Read the story about how this organization is using comradeire to prevent Veterans’ suicide.

Andrew went on a couple of hikes and wanted to do one in Nashville. He has been working since January to coordinate the hike in Nashville. Right now he has 150+ hikers signed up. He is working to make the hike a great experience and is already looking for ward to doing on in 2020.

The first part of this podcast, Andrew was candid about his situation and how he got to certain places in his life. In a way, this hike is a way to leave the past behind and turn over a new life.

Listening to Andrew talk, I can tell you that this is the reason to Oscar Mike Radio. Andrew had bad things happen to him and made bad choices, but he is looking stay sober and show other people that you can change your life at anytime if you put in the work. It is a great story, and I can’t wait to meet Andrew one day. He is Oscar Mike.

157 – Something Old, Something New

157 – Something Old, Something New

You can go to www.facebook.com/oscarmikeradio/ to see something I am going to try doing more and more. 157 marks where I make a real effort to do video. I will always do the podcast, but video or a “TV” type feel is something I have been repeatedly asked to do. The podcast will always be first, but everyone wants to see my face.

After all this time, I am going to make a commitment to do more video work on Facebook and reassess in 2020. The feedback I have gotten is people will feel more connected if they can see my face. We will see. NOTE: Turn your volume up. I set it too low.

Also, I am going to see how embedding the SoundCloud Link works here.

Let’s see how this works!

Oscar Mike Radio turns 3!!!

Oscar Mike Radio turns 3!!!

Three years ago to the day, I posted this on my old wordpress. I had no idea what was going to happen or even if Oscar Mike Radio would last this long. 156 podcasts later, I am still having fun producing them. Getting to learn about Veterans and Military issues, the people who support us and history never gets old. It is a privilege to use this platform to serve and assist my brothers and sisters in arms.

Below is the link to my first podcast post, enjoy. Also, you can listen to my very first podcast. Let me know what you think versus what you hear today.

Good things are on the way, and once again thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years.
