Chris Grosso will be interviewing spiritual icon Ram Dass, discussing his message, which began in the early 70's with his game changing book Be Here Now. They also chat about how to find and honor our own individual paths, suffering as grace and how in the end, it truly is all just grist for the mill.
Ram Dass: Ram Dass first went to India in 1967. He was still Dr. Richard Alpert, an already eminent Harvard psychologist and psychedelic pioneer with Dr.Timothy Leary. He continued his psychedelic research until that fateful Eastern trip in 1967, when he traveled to India. In India, he met his guru, Neem Karoli Baba, affectionately known as Maharaj-ji. Maharaj-ji gave Ram Dass his name, which means "servant of God." Everything changed then—his intense dharmic life started, and he became a pivotal influence on a culture that has reverberated with the words Be Here Now ever since.

This week we take a look at the elevated unemployment rate amongst veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. While nobody wants to see any American citizen struggle to find a job, the rate for veterans is especially disturbing. There are many factors involved in this disturbing information, and we break them down during the program.
With so many important news stories out there today, sometimes our military news get’s overlooked. Well here on All American Veterans, that simply won’t be the case. In future programs, you’ll be hearing from military leaders, past and present, as we discuss the news that affects our nation’s heroes. We also talk to some of the most patriotic Americans in the entertainment industry who have proven throughout the years that our military heroes hold a special place in their hearts.
Recently I sat down with Mr. Lee Greenwood to talk about his unwavering support for our troops, and you’ll be amazed at how much the singer best known for his hit song “God Bless the USA” does to support the men and women who sacrifice so much for this great nation.
What is the quality of life for the average US Veteran? One thing I know, from experience. The average veteran turns fault on self before pointing fingers. When will Veterans get to the top of America's to-do-list? We tweeted this question and this show to every group listed below. I pose the same quesion to every American. When will Veterans get to the top of all Americans to-do-list?
President Barack Obama
Congress 435 members
Senate 100 members
Governors 50 of y'all
State legislators salaried too
Mayors across America
Clergy especially y'all with great donations thanks to 501c
When will Veterans get to the top of America's To-Do-List. Veterans are some of America's proudest citizens. They voluntarily gave their time to make America as safe as possible. They are not receiving the return they deserve.
Veterans need all kinds of services average citizen needs as well as services that are totally service related. The kindest thing I can say about saying to veterans "thank you for your service is that statement is comes across as disingenuous. There are veterans we meet everyday who we do not know to be veterans. This is why saying thank you for your service is not enough. Veterans need to feel in their everyday life that America is indeed thankful for the services given to this "ungrateful country. And guess what guys? Veterans will scold me for saying this country is ungrateful, for the veterans I know love this country and have never ever said a negative word about America. I know veterans who died early and I attribute those early deaths to suffering and disappointment they lived with after serving this country.
When will Veterans get to the top of America's to-do-list?
