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.

Revolutionary Westchester 250

I had the honor of covering the launch of Revolutionary Westchester 250 at the Jay Heritage Center in Rye, New York for Westchester Talk Radio. Part of a nationwide effort leading up to the United States Semiquincentennial in 2026, Revolutionary Westchester 250 is dedicated to recognizing Westchester County's pivotal role in the American Revolution and educating people about the many individuals behind America's Independence. Below are my four interviews from what should be the first of many great Revolutionary Westchester 250 events. I hope you enjoy these conversations as much as I did.

Rapid-Fire History: Battle of Fredericksburg

Entrenched on the heights behind the town of Fredericksburg, Virginia, General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia, consisting of over 70,000 soldiers, held excellent ground to fight a defensive battle against Major General Ambrose Burnside’s 120,000-strong Army of the Potomac. On December 13, 1862, Burnside sent one wing of his army to attack the Confederate right commanded by Lieutenant General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson on Prospect Hill and another wing to strike the Rebel left under Lieutenant General James Longstreet on Marye’s Heights. Longstreet’s position offered a sweeping field of fire over a half-mile of open fields that Burnside’s troops would have to cross, leading one of

Lessons From British Paratroopers: Richard Neale and David Scott

At the 2018 Bastogne Banquet at the Thayer Hotel on the grounds of West Point, I had the great honor of spending some time with two incredible British Army veterans, Richard Neale and David Scott. Both men served as paratroopers at different times and they were generous enough to sit down and recount their experiences. I can’t thank these men enough for their service and for sharing their knowledge with me. Richard Neale David Scott

December 7, 1941: "a date which will live in infamy"

December 7, 1941 will forever be “a date which will live in infamy,” as President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said. On that fateful Sunday 77 years ago, “the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the empire of Japan.” The Japanese strike against the American naval base at Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu in Hawaii delivered a crushing blow to the U.S. Pacific Fleet, destroying or damaging nearly 20 vessels, including the eight battleships in port, and over 300 airplanes. American losses included 2,403 servicemen and civilians killed and 1,178 wounded. The unsettling day was filled with tragedy, but in the midst of the chaos, heroes em

Service With the 101st Airborne: The Story of Robert Fuller During World War II

In this interview, Robert Fuller shares the story of his service with the 101st Airborne during the Second World War. I can't thank this amazing man enough for his service to our country and for giving me the opportunity to spend some time with him. I hope you find the words of this American hero as enlightening as I did.

This Nation Must Not Fail: The Story of Vincent J. Speranza

This nation must not fail. When in battle, Vincent J. Speranza always remembered those words that his father told him and his three brothers. Both of Speranza’s parents came from Italy and his father “continued to say all of his life that America was the most magnificent place in the whole world because there was nowhere else in the world where a man could come here with nothing, only a willingness to work, and build a family,” and although his dad was too old to serve, he expected his sons to answer the call when America needed them. As the Second World War raged around the globe, Speranza joined the United States Army in November 1943, shortly after graduating from High School. As a ninete

 

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. .

SPORTS BROADCASTER

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. 

PUBLIC SPEAKER

Nothing brings me more joy than sharing my mission with others. Whether it's in front of a camera, microphone, or classroom, I am open to every form of communication. .
