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.

September 11, 2001: We Will Never Forget

On September 11, 2001, all of our lives changed forever. Regardless of where we were or what we were doing, not a single one of us who lived through that day will ever forget the shock we felt as we learned that our nation was under attack. Nineteen years later, the sights and sounds from that terrible day still haunt us and they will always be a part of us. While the sorrow will never go away, our unbreakable American spirit shines on. The 9/11 terrorist attacks were designed to leave us in ruin. They took so much from us, but they also brought out the best in us. That day, every American had a common purpose: to help one another. From the first responders navigating the perils at Ground Ze

Dakota Meyer and the Battle of Ganjgal

On Tuesday, September 8, 2009, Marine Corporal Dakota L. Meyer and his team were ambushed by more than 50 Taliban fighters in the village of Ganjgal in Kunar Province, Afghanistan. Over the course of the six-hour battle, Meyer repeatedly entered the ambush area and faced heavy enemy fire as he attempted to fight his way to his trapped teammates. After several trips into the danger zone by vehicle, the 21-year-old Marine made a fifth attempt on foot and finally reached the embattled position. The four members of Meyer’s squad, First Lt. Michael Johnson, Staff Sgt. Aaron Kenefick, Gunnery Sgt. Edwin Johnson Jr., and Hospital Corpsman Third Class James R. Layton, had all fallen by the time he r

Forged Under Fire: Washington the Warrior and the French & Indian War

Long before he became the bane of the mighty British Empire, George Washington was a faithful and eager servant of the Crown. As an ambitious young man, he stepped onto the global stage at a time when tensions broiled between Britain and France over control of North America. Washington’s experiences in the buildup to and in what ultimately became the French and Indian War helped mold him into the warrior who would one day stun the great empire that he once devotedly served by winning the fight to secure American independence in the Revolutionary War. At 21-years old, Major George Washington of the Virginia Regiment volunteered to deliver an ultimatum to the French from Virginia Lt. Governor

These proceedings are closed: The Surrender of Japan

On the morning of Sunday, September 2, 1945, the bloodiest human or natural catastrophe in history ended at last as the Japanese formally surrendered to the Allies aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. Speaking to a live worldwide radio audience, the Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers, American General Douglas MacArthur, opened the ceremony by announcing, “We are gathered here, representatives of the major warring powers, to conclude, a solemn agreement whereby peace may be restored.” With more than 250 Allied warships lying at anchor in the bay and the flags of the United States, Great Britain, the Soviet Union, and China all soaring high above the array of leaders assembled on the deck

A Bloody Beginning: Germany Invades Poland

On Friday, September 1, 1939, Europe trembled as five German armies composed of some 1.5 million soldiers, 2,000 tanks, and 1,900 aircraft launched Operation Fall Weiss and invaded Poland. Although the Polish army was able to call upon nearly one million men of its own to stand up against the invaders, the proud nation’s forces were simply outmatched and overwhelmed by the lightning-quick, tactically innovative, and technologically superior Germans. With overpowering blitzkrieg attacks, which is best described as “a method of offensive warfare designed to strike a swift, focused blow at an enemy using mobile, maneuverable forces, including armored tanks and air support,” the Germans killed m

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 rise
