What Veterans Day Means To Me

What Veterans Day Means To Me

November 11, 2020

On this Veterans Day episode, I revisit a blog post I wrote back in 2010 on what this day means to me with a few updates.  I share memories of veterans from my childhood, my family, my college days and more recent stories.

Below are links to my previous conversations with military veterans:

Colonel Michael Vaughn, USAF Retired


LCDR Steven Cooper, USN Retired


Master Sergeant David Rich, 172nd Security Forces Squadron Mississippi

Today on the show, I am chatting with a long-time friend from high school, Master Sergeant David Rich from the 172nd Security Forces Squadron out of Mississippi

David and I talk about growing up in Tennessee, his path from army to Air Force, his deployment days, his love of UT football (Tennessee not Texas) and his obsession with Nascar and what makes it so enthralling.



Friends, Thank you so much for sharing this past hour (more or less) with David and I.

We most appreciate you listening in today and hopefully, learning something new as well.

Today on the show I am talking with Colonel Michael Vaughn, United States Air Force Retired. We talk 30 years in the military, ICBM missiles, Strategic Air Command and the cold war.  Colonel Vaughn retired from the United States Air Force in 2010 concluding a 30 year career in the military.  He started off as an ICBM launch officer in South Dakota and concluded his long career as Chief of Nuclear Operations at Offutt Air Force Base in Bellevue Nebraska.

I have more interesting conversations coming up in the next few days and weeks.  As a reminder if you are not already subscribed to my podcast, I want to encourage you to do that today.
