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. By eternalizing the stories of these individuals, I hope that I can remind everyone why we should never take anything in this life for granted. 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.

This Is Why We Stand: Sergeant Fred William Stockham.

Sergeant Fred William Stockham exemplified the spirit of the United States Marine Corps in every single way. In 1918, Sergeant Stockham was in France assisting in the American war effort to help bring the devastation of World War I to an end. Stockham was part of a large Marine effort to drive the Germans out of a highly contested area known as Belleau Wood. On the morning of June 13th, the Germans began an artillery barrage on the Marines 6th Regiment. Stockham and others were targeted by explosive and gas shells for hours during the bombardment. Poison gas shells were a horrifying element of the First World War. Without mercy, these chemical agents could kill, blind, or cripple anyone who

This Is Why We Stand: Sergeant Alvin York.

It is no coincidence that the First World War ended a year and a half after the United States committed its forces to the battlefields of a war torn Europe. Sergeant Alvin York was one of those brave Americans who brought American ideals to the fight against a firmly committed enemy. York originally resisted serving in the war because of his religious principles. His request to be a conscientious objector was denied and in May of 1918, York was in France with the 82nd division of the U.S. Army. On October 8, 1918, York and 17 other Americans had captured a German regiment. Soon after, they came under heavy machine gun fire. 9 of those American soldiers were killed or wounded. Surrounded by c

This Is Why We Stand: Henry Johnson

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy." Those words come from one great man and can be applied to so many others who served our country. Henry Johnson is one of those many men. Johnson served in an all-black National Guard unit that was among the first American forces to arrive in Europe during World War I. His famed unit would go on to earn the nickname of the "Harlem Hellfighters", a testament to their strength on the battlefield. On May 14, 1918, Johnson and another soldier were serving sentry duty when they came under attack by 20 German troop

My Mission Continued in 2017

In 2016, I saw an athlete who became the center of attention by refusing to stand. I then became disheartened to see others following him. My belief in the American flag and everything that it represents has never wavered. Sports broadcasting gave me my voice. I knew that it was my duty to find a way to use that voice to counter the misguided wave of disrespect that had ensued. That is when I created, This Is Why We Stand. A digital series that conveys the true meaning of the American Flag by eternalizing the sacrifices of our service members. I was honored and inspired by the support of my series this past year. In 2017, I am resolute in continuing to build upon my mission. I know that in t

 

SERVICE THROUGH SKILL

I will use my skills to help anyone that I can. No one will be forgotten and no place is out of reach. 

HISTORIAN

From a very young age I have understood that my place in this world is the result of sacrifices made by others. My passion for Military history helped to fuel that belief and has been a constant in my life ever since. .

I have been fortunate enough to have worked for the New York Giants, Madison Square Garden, & ESPN Radio Albany. I have hosted my own sports talk show called, The Sports Vault for over 5 years. These experiences continue to enhance my creative capabilities.
