Updates on Upcoming TalkingwithHeroes Programs - February-March 2009

The most exciting news I have this month is that my son-n-law came home last week from his second deployment. This one was a 15 month deployment in Mosul, Iraq along with over 3,000 other soldiers with 3BCT at Ft Carson and soldiers from Ft Hood.

Some of you reding this have loved ones who are now home too. We will keep those soldiers who still serve in Iraq and Afghanistan in our Prayers


All three have previously aired but one was on Super Bowl Sunday and the other Pro Bowl Sunday.

These organizations are doing important work for our troops and their families and we wanted to be sure that their messages get out to the maximum number of people.

On this program we announce New Programs with and We also Introduce a group of Independent VEMMA Distributors who have become Talking with Heroes Sponsors. Listen Why!!

We are gathering testimonies on VEMMA's Energy Drink called VERVE from soldiers who have been using it in Iraq. These products are great to add to care packages and also can be a great fund raiser for all support groups. I have been impressed using the product and everybody I know who has started drinking VERVE is impressed by the natural energy lift and no crash after.

1. We have been asked to do a talk show at an event with 3,000 soldiers at Ft Benning for mid April. It is a Military Appreciation Event. I have talked with the PAO there since mid last year about doing interviews with some of their recently returned soldiers from Iraq so that they can share their progress stories.

2. We are also wanting to do at least a two hour event here in Colorado Springs with some of the just returned soldiers with the 3BCT who did an incredible job for 15 months in Baghdad and Mosul, Iraq. We also would have key leaders in the community on that program to state their thanks for these thousands of soldiers and their families. This event would happen shortly after they are all back from their 30 days leaves.

3. There was discussion late last year about us doing a talk show with a SoldiersAngels Group near Atlanta. We just found out that a Museum of Patriotism in Atlanta has said we can have their Venue to do this talk show event.

Other programs would happen in Atlanta around the same time including something similar at Atlanta Airport with the USO that we did in Dallas with the USO in 2007 covering how they welcome our troops home. These events would happen sometime late April.

4. We will film the Walter Reed Army Medical Center 100th Year Anniversary Event on May 9th. We will take the entire event and put it on the internet for everybody to watch 24/7.

We are seeking sponsors to cover the costs of these Talk Show Events pkus for our 4th trip to Iraq and 1st to Afghanistan for later this year. For the sponsors the visibility will be great and long term!


As many of you know everything we did for the past 3+ years including our three trips to Iraq and events that we did around the country all happened as a result of sponsors.

We are looking for people who can help us find sponsors for all of these events. Those who can help would also benefit from the sponsorship dollars raised. If you would be interested in helping and getting more involved in Talking with Heroes please email me at:

Talking with Heroes keeps growing as a result of many of You and our listeners telling other people about these programs.

Please pass this information on to everybody you can.

Thank You
