My Mission

I firmly believe that our first duty as Americans and people of the world is to remember the sacrifices of others. Sports broadcasting gave me my voice. Now, I’m using that voice and all of the skills that I have learned to honor the heroes of history.

As time goes on, this website will serve as a resource for all generations to understand why we must always honor the ultimate symbols of our freedom.

He soon found himself fighting in France on the Western Front with the 168th Infantry of the 42nd division.

This Is Why We Stand: Battle Of Gettysburg, Rufus Dawes At The Railroad Cut

From a very young age I have understood that my place in this world is because of the sacrifices made by others. Men like Lieutenant Colonel Rufus Dawes who fought for the Union during the Civil War epitomize that sacrifice I describe. Dawes led the 6th Wisconsin Infantry of the Iron Brigade.

On the first day of Gettysburg, Dawes regiment faced a a Confederate regiment positioned in what is known as the Railroad Cut. Dawes men were outnumbered 2 to 1 against their well protected enemy. The 6th Wisconsin Infantry would have to ad
