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 Goes Both Ways

Theodore Roosevelt: The Maser of American Manliness

Happy birthday to the master of American manliness, Theodore Roosevelt, born in New York City on October 27, 1858. Although young Theodore Roosevelt suffered poor health throughout his childhood, he refused to let his sickly body prevent him from living the great life of adventure that his powerful mind conjured up. As he vowed to his father, “I’ll make my body. By heaven, I will.” Through vigorous exercises including weight lifting, boxing, and gymnastics, Roosevelt made good on his promise. In the words of author George Grant, “he literally beat his body into submission.” The tenacious spirit that Roosevelt displayed during his boyhood remained with him for the rest of his life. He approac

Over the past few years, I've been lucky enough to interview Ronny Ymbras multiple times about his service in the Vietnam War. Our roles were recently reversed as Ronny invited me on his Veterans Live Show to talk about my passion for sharing the stories of veterans through This Is Why We Stand.

Desmond Doss: The Hero of Hacksaw Ridge

On October 12, 1945, President Harry Truman presented the Medal of Honor, the United States military’s highest decoration for valor under fire, to one of the most remarkable American heroes of World War II, Desmond Thomas Doss. Born in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1919, Doss was raised as a strict Seventh Day Adventist, a Protestant Christian denomination. Devout in his faith, which forbade him from bearing arms and engaging in violence, Doss was offered a military deferment after the United States entered the Second World War. Feeling duty-bound to serve his country, however, he enlisted in the Army Medical Corps as a noncombatant. “While I believe in the commandment ‘Thou shall not kill,’” Doss

Heroes Under Fire: Gary Gordon, Randall Shughart, and the Battle of Mogadishu

Devastated by civil war and widespread starvation, Somalia was in desperate need of help in the fall of 1993. Efforts by the United Nations to send in humanitarian aid to the embattled country had begun a year earlier, but as journalist Mark Bowden writes, “Almost right away, militias led by the Somali warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid began attacking and killing U.N. peacekeepers.” Commanded by Major General William F. Garrison, Task Force Ranger, which was composed of elite U.S. Army, Air Force, and Naval special operations units, was deployed to Somalia to help protect the humanitarian efforts and to combat power-hungry warlords like Aidid. On the afternoon of October 3, 1993, Delta Force oper



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. .


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. .
