Happy Fourth of July to all! This Wednesday July 4, 2012 on PeakPerformanceTalk, we honor those who served and continue to serve this country.
What can an elite athlete, or a performer from any walk, learn from a soldier?  

Dr. Bill Chachkes of Football Reporters Online is our guest! Affectionately known as the Original Draftnik as well as  Dr. Football on his weekly blogtalkradio show, Bill has attended the NFL draft since 1972, when he said, "I can pick these players as well as any GM" to his dad, a lifelong college and pro football fan, career federal law enforcer, and career citizen soldier. Bill began studying the game of football under his dad's watchful eye at age 5, when he attended his first NY Giants game at Yankee Stadium in 1965. This past year was Bill's 28th year at  the NFL Draft. He is a past member of the Pro Football Researchers Association, and has over 15 years of coaching experience at the high school, college and semi- pro levels. In 1979, at age19, Bill took a leave from his college education to serve in the U.S. Army as a Commissioned Warrant Officer, eventually flying helicopters first for the 229th Battalion, 1st Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, then (briefly) the 2nd Battalion of the 101st Air Assault Division), and the 160th Special Aviation Battalion (Airborne), from January of 1982 until April of 1984. He is a decorated aviation combat veteran with among other commendations, A Purple Heart, A Silver Star, A Bronze Star with "V" device, The Soldiers Medal (2 times), The Army Air Medal (2 times), the Army Commendation medal, the Joint Service Medal, and The Army Distinguished Flying Cross.?
