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.

Marcario Garcia: The First Mexican Immigrant to Receive the Medal of Honor

On August 23, 1945, Staff Sergeant Marcario Garcia was awarded the Medal of Honor, becoming the first Mexican immigrant to receive the U.S. military’s highest decoration for valor under fire. Born in Castanos, Mexico in 1920, Garcia journeyed to the United States with his family at the age of three. Determined to build a better life in America, Garcia’s family settled in Sugarland, Texas and went to work on a ranch. Giving his all to help support his family, Garcia worked so hard that most of his childhood was spent toiling on the ranch rather than inside of a classroom. With the United States in the midst of World War II, Garcia, who wasn’t officially an American citizen and had never risen

An Atomic End: The Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

The closer American forces advanced toward the Japanese mainland, the more determined Japanese troops were to fight to the last man. It took thirty-six days of bloody fighting for the Marines to capture the small volcanic island of Iwo Jima, which sat roughly 660 miles south of Tokyo. By the end of the fight on March 26, 1945, only 212 Japanese of the original 21,000-man-strong garrison were still alive to surrender. Approximately 6,891 Americans died on the black sands of Iwo Jima and another 18,070 were wounded. One week after Iwo Jima was declared secure, American forces assaulted the island of Okinawa, located only 350 miles south of the Japanese mainland. As on Iwo Jima, the Japanese tr

John Clem: The “Drummer Boy of Chickamauga”

Happy birthday to the youngest soldier ever to become a noncommissioned officer in the U.S. Army, John Clem, born on August 13, 1851 in Newark, Ohio. Although he wasn’t even ten years old, Clem rallied to the Stars and Stripes shortly after the outbreak of the American Civil War. Following President Abraham Lincoln’s call for volunteers to serve in the Union army for a three-year term in May 1861, Clem tried to join up with the newly formed 3rd Ohio. Although he was denied from serving with the Ohio outfit, he eventually found a home with the 22nd Michigan. The Wolverines admired the young boy’s determination and adopted him as a mascot and unofficial drummer boy. According to the American B

 

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.

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.

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. .
