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.

The Fight for our Heroes - Part II

If you haven't already, please read The Fight for our Heroes: Part I before diving into this entry. The very idea of tearing down statues of Jesus Christ, the hero of all heroes who is the embodiment of love, the Lord and Savior of the universe, and so much more to the 2.3 billion Christians inhabiting the world today, is so patently absurd that anyone who espouses such a view deserves to be called out for their reckless lunacy at every turn. What the far-left activist who supports destroying statues and images of what he calls a “white European” Jesus does not account for is the fact that many cultures around the world depict Christ in ways that resemble their communities. As one writer for

The Fight for our Heroes - Part I

Jesus Christ, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Ulysses S. Grant. The first is the central figure in human history who set the moral and ethical foundations that form the basis of our existence. The second personified the word duty and dedicated the prime years of his life to winning American independence and setting the United States on the road to freedom for all people. The latter two saved our Union from ruin, sparking “a new birth of freedom” for the United States and ensuring “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” It is hard to imagine how these heroes of history and so many others like them could deserve anything but our

To the Last Drop of Blood: The Battle of Bunker Hill

Roughly two months after the crash of musketry signaled the beginning of the Revolutionary War at the Battles of Lexington and Concord, American militiamen stood ready to fight again. On Saturday, June 17, 1775, American troops entrenched on Breed’s Hill on the Charleston peninsula across from Boston Harbor faced off against British soldiers and Marines led by General William Howe in the first pitched battle of the Revolution. The savage combat that took place along this hilly landscape left an enduring memory of bloody horror in the minds of the Redcoats and proved that the American citizen-soldier was not a foe to be taken lightly. Following the opening action of the war in the small Massa

Honor to Old Glory and the U.S. Army

Today, we honor the birth of two of the most revered symbols of our freedom, the American flag and the United States Army. The two have stood side by side since the founding days of our nation and we must never take either of them for granted. Officially established on June 14, 1775, the Continental Army persevered for eight long years under the command of General George Washington to secure American independence and to give our nation its life. The soldiers who faithfully followed Washington dedicated themselves completely to our nation, and that remarkable standard of service has been sustained over time by preceding generations of American fighters. Two hundred forty-five years later, the

A Warrior for the Ages: Winfield Scott

Happy birthday to a warrior for the ages, Winfield Scott, born on June 13, 1786 in Dinwiddie County, Virginia. For fifty-three of his seventy-nine years on this earth, Winfield Scott wore the uniform of a soldier. He spent forty-seven of those years as a general, serving in that rank longer than any other individual in American history. Over his long life of service, Scott distinguished himself as a warrior for the ages across three major wars: the War of 1812, the Mexican-American War, and the American Civil War. An 1855 portrait of Winfield Scott. (Photo Credit: Wikimedia Commons) Scott’s talent for military leadership was unleashed during the War of 1812, a conflict in which he proved him

"Tear Down This Wall!" - President Reagan at the Brandenburg Gate

On Friday, June 12, 1987, President Ronald Reagan delivered what has come to be remembered as his “Berlin Wall” Speech at the Brandenburg Gate in West Berlin, Germany. Standing nearly a dozen feet tall and completely encircling West Berlin, the Berlin Wall was erected by the communist government of the German Democratic Republic and the Soviet Union in 1961. Principally built to prevent East Germans from escaping the communist system by fleeing to West Berlin, the Berlin Wall had divided the historic German city for nearly 26 years at the time of President Reagan’s speech. In the midst of the Cold War, it served as one of the most visible symbols of the worldwide struggle between communism a

D-Day: The Great Crusade of World War II

As General Dwight D. Eisenhower reminded the soldiers, sailors, and airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force in his Order of the Day for Tuesday, June 6, 1944, “You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you.” To “bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world,” Eisenhower, the Supreme Allied Commander, exclaimed, “We will accept nothing less than full victory!” On D-Day, the “liberty-loving people” of the world were indeed watching and praying for Allied forces as they began the greatest o

Devil Dogs to the Rescue: The Marines at the Battle of Belleau Wood

The fate of the First World War was very much in doubt for the Allies in June 1918. After the exit of Russia from the conflict earlier that March, the Germans were free to reinforce their armies along the bitterly contested Western Front with 50 divisions. This added strength was maximized that spring as the Germans launched their largest offensive since the beginning of the war nearly four years earlier. As thousands of German soldiers stormed out of their trenches and raced across the battle-scarred fields of northern France, they succeeded in driving back the British and left the exhausted French on the verge of collapse. With the Germans only 45 miles from Paris and the Allies desperate
