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.

Episode 90 – Sock Puppet Silliness

Welcome back! It is just me this week and so here is a show with traditional flow you all are used to on Oscar Mike Radio. Stand up, shuffle-up and walk to the door, it is time to JUMP!


Question of the Week

What is the Weekend Safety Brief? Simply put, the weekend safety brief will be a weekly YouTube Livestream. I need to get better in front of the camera, and this seemed a fun way to do it.

Episode 90!!

Episode 90 is here!!! This starts the official countdown to Episode 100! Time flies and I have been having fun ever since this started. One of the big things going forward that I can now announce is Oscar Mike Radio which as you all know is part of the Whoobazoo will now be streaming to Radio Massasoit.

Episode 88 with Sgt Megan was the very first episode, and I am excited that Oscar Mike Radio will be heard by a younger demographic.

 


The Word – Sock Puppet Silliness

Was this so heinous that it cost two people their careers?

Look at the image to your left. This is Master Sergeant Robin Brown (E-8) with the Tennessee Air National Guard. She was removed from her position at the Joint Public Affairs Office after this video hit critical mass on social media. I looked at this video and while I could argue that it wasn’t exactly, 100% military proper, based on the weight of the collars in the room it certainly wasn’t a moment that warranted the reaction by the brass. The brass being Major General Terry Haston who kicked out MSGT Brown, forced the retirement of the Colonel who presided over the ceremony. His main crime was he did not raise his right hand during the ceremony. Adam Weinstein, Senior Editor for Task and Purpose & Navy Veteran sums up how I feel with the following article. Everybody Involved In That Dino Puppet Reenlistment Video Just Got Fired .

People are getting upset for the wrong things…..
