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.

Duty, Honor, Country: General Douglas MacArthur's Final Speech at West Point

On Saturday, May 12, 1962, the legendary General Douglas MacArthur accepted the Sylvanus Thayer Award and delivered his final speech at the United States Military Academy at West Point. A 1903 graduate of the Academy, MacArthur also skillfully served as superintendent of West Point after the First World War.

In his speech to the corps of cadets on May 12, MacArthur emphasized the profound meaning of that motto in a way that only a soldier of his magnitude could have done. Among his many unforgettable remarks that day,

The 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe Day

On Tuesday, May 8, 1945, the din of rumbling tanks, zipping planes, bursting bombs, and the incessant rattling of machine gun fire quietly faded away across the European mainland for the first time in nearly six long years. Just the day before, Supreme Allied Commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower accepted the unconditional surrender of all remaining German forces. “The mad dog of Europe was put out of the way,” said a correspondent who observed the surrender ceremony, “the strange monstrosity that was Nazi Germany had been beaten into submission.” At 11:01 p.m. on May 8, the document of capitulation went into effect, marking the end of World War II in the European Theatre of Operations.

The Greatness of Grant: Six Lessons to Learn from the Man who Saved the Union

Among the pantheon of immortal American heroes, Ulysses S. Grant ranks at the very top, standing beside only George Washington and Abraham Lincoln in regard to his contributions to the United States. As his faithful friend and most trusted subordinate during the American Civil, William Tecumseh Sherman put it, “If the name of Washington is allied with the birth of our country, that of Grant is forever identified with its preservation.” Not only did Grant save the nation that Washington founded, but he also did it in a way that the father of America would have admired. U.S. Grant epitomized Washington’s timeless belief that, “Perseverance and spirit have done wonders in all ages." A humble an
