  • Military Monday with John D. Gresham and Author Al Nofi

    in History

    Question: How do you take a Navy from a force structure of just a handful of wooden cruisers to the most powerful fleet in history in just two generations? Because this is exactly what happened within the United States Navy (USN) in the late 1800s in the first half of the 20th century. Along with obvious answers like having the necessary resources and industrial infrastructure, there is the question of the people who manned it. One of the keys in the development of the USN's training, tactics, and fleet doctrine were 21 "Fleet Problens," run between 1923 and 1940. Fleet Problems were a series of full-scale fleet exercises, designed to explore and experiment new ideas for the US fleet, while providing officers and crews with a chance to operate under simulated battle conditions for extended periods of time. Most of the future World War II and early Cold War USN leaders participated in the Fleet Problems, learning many of the lessons that would allow them to achieve victory in the coming "Two Ocean War" that was coming.

    To learn more about the USN's Fleet Problems prior to World War II, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)). Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited  Government Printing Office author Al Nofi to discuss his book, TO THE FLEET FOR WAR. Considered an "instant classic" within the Naval history genre, Nofi's book describes in intimate detail, the various Fleet Problems, how they were run and adjudicated, and lessons learned derived from the exercises that became the basis for the USN's World War II doctrine.

    MMSRS #53 - What's in a Name?

    in Military

    Guys, have the "Lady Panthers" (yes, a real spouses support group name) asked you to join them? Do you become the token "guy" spouse? What do you do? Join host Dave Etter and call in folks as they discuss this perplexing and sometimes aggravating event!

    MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based call-in radio show (516-453-9167), hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Airs Fridays at Noon CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.

    Military Monday with John D. Gresham and Yucca Press Author Mike Jenne

    in History

    Beginning in the late 1950s, the United States and Soviet Union expanded the battlefield of the Cold War into near earth space. Seen by both sides as the new "High Ground," space offered an exciting and decisive new set of options for both sides of the East-West conflict, which both moved rapidly to exploit. Initially limited to robotic surveillance satellites, military space programs on both sides quickly began to explore the possibilities of manned spacecraft in the new "High Frontier." While the American manned military space programs were canceled for budget reasons, the Soviets did eventually launch a pair of military space stations for reconnaissance purposes, and testing space related weapons/hardware.

    But what if the United States had clandestinely continued their manned military space program? That is the question asked by Yucca Publishing (@YuccaPublishing) author Mike Jenne (http://www.mikejennebooks.com/) in a new series of books. The first of these, BLUE GEMINI, hypothesizes that the Soviet Union has developed an orbital 100 Mt bombardment system, which the United States decides must be "negated." The instrument of this "negation" will be a spacecraft known as "Blue Gemini," a modified U.S. Air Force derivative of the two-man NASA spacecraft flown in 1965/66. Insightful and historically accurate, BLUE GEMINI as a thriller with a solid basis in fact, and could have easily become reality.

    To learn more about BLIUE GEMINI, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited Mike Jenne to talk about the historic facts behind his fiction.

    Military Monday with John D. Gresham and Zenith Press Author Fred Minnick

    in History

    Over the past few years, exceptional distilled spirits have become something of a fashion across the world, as more refined and educated palates have begun treating fine liquors as fashionable pursuits. And certainly one of the most surprising developments has been the growing popularity of a distinctly American liquor: Bourbon. Long viewed as a drink of "bad man," Bourbon has become the drink of choice for men and women, young and old. But very few people have a sense of the history of Bourbon, or the variety of different brands and blends that are available today. And because we can, we are going to tell you all about it.

    Whatever your preferences In liquor, you're probably going to enjoy the subject of this week's Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)). Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited Zenith Press author Fred Minnick (@FredMinnick) to discuss his new book, BOUBON CUTIOUS.  Designed as a tasting guide for those genuinely intrigued by the spirit, BOURBON CURIOUSis a compendium of some of the greatest  Bourbons ever created, from  distilleries all over the  country.  And if you're wondering what this has to do with the military, our usual topic on Military Monday, the answer is, absolutely nothing! We just happen to like bourbon, and it's our show. So join us and enjoy…
