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.

To Hell and Back: The Epic Stand of Audie Murphy

On January 26, 1945, Second Lieutenant Audie Murphy and his small company of GIs watched in shock as approximately 250 German soldiers and six tanks emerged out of the woods and advanced towards their position near the village of Holtzwihr in eastern France. It was a perilous situation to be in, but at just 19 years old, Murphy had already faced it all, proving himself to be a soldier with a spine of steel in earlier fights across Italy and France. Since his boyhood days taking care of his 11 siblings and his mother in Hunt County, Texas, Murphy had proven that in the face of adversity, he could always be counted on to stand tall and do his duty. Now, with men ten years his senior looking to

A Devil of a Whipping: Daniel Morgan and the Battle of Cowpens

A renewed spirit sifted through the cold Southern air as Brigadier General Daniel Morgan and his troops stood ready for battle on a 500 yard grazing pasture called “the cowpens” near Thicketty Creek, South Carolina on January 17, 1781. Not long before this moment, the might of the British Crown had proven all but unstoppable in fights across the American South dating back to late December 1778. Just when the fight for independence seemed to be on its last legs, however, everything changed after the resounding Patriot victory at the Battle of Kings Mountain in October 1780. Now, a new year had opened with momentum back on the American side. With this renewed power flowing through their veins

A Debt of Retaliatory Vengeance: Andrew Jackson and the Battle of New Orleans

During his boyhood, Andrew Jackson suffered miserably as a British prisoner of war, was scarred by the sword of a Redcoat officer, and suffered the loss of his mother and two brothers during the American Revolution, leaving him an orphan by the age of 14. As he grew into a hardened warrior, Jackson was determined to exact revenge on the enemy that had caused him so much pain early in his life. "I owe to Britain a debt of retaliatory vengeance," he wrote to his wife Rachel, "should our forces meet I trust I shall pay the debt...." Through his tireless defense of the vital seaport city of New Orleans, Louisiana during the War of 1812, Jackson achieved his long-awaited retribution against his o
