The July 14, 2011, episode of American Heroes Radio features a conversation with former US Army soldier John Podlaski, the author of Cherries: A Vietnam War Novel.
About the Author
John Podlaski “served in Vietnam during 1970 and 1971 as an infantryman with both the Wolfhounds of the 25th Division and the 501st Infantry Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division. He was awarded the Combat Infantry Badge, Bronze Star, two Air Medals, and a Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry. He has spent the years since Vietnam working in various management positions within the automotive industry and has recently received a BS in Business Administration. He is a member of Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 154. John is the author of Cherries : A Vietnam War Novel
According to Cherries: A Vietnam War Novel, “It's 1970 - they're 18 years old - drafted and trained by the Army Infantry for five months - sent to Vietnam with others their age to fight in an unpopular war - dubbed "Cherries" by their more seasoned peers - nothing had prepared them for this nightmare - forced to become men overnight - working hard to learn the ropes and earn the acceptance and trust of fellow soldiers. Once they come under fire and witness death firsthand, a life-changing transition begins. This eye-opening account offers readers an in-depth look into the everyday struggles of these young infantry soldiers."
On August 27, 2009, Conversations with American Heroes at the Watering Hole will discuss the Vietnam War with former USMC Major Richard Botkin.
Former United States Marine Corps Major Richard Botkin “graduated from the University of Michigan's School of Business. He served from 1980 to 1995 on active and reserve duty as a Marine Corps infantry officer with units to include 2nd Battalion 7th Marines, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, and 4th Force Reconnaissance Company. His understanding for Southeast Asia has been enhanced by the nine medical/dental mission trips he helped to organize and lead to Cambodia between 1998 and 2007, and four trips to Vietnam, including one with his main Vietnamese character Le Ba Binh, to specifically do research for Ride the Thunder. Botkin currently lives with his family in northern California, where he is an investment advisor for a major brokerage firm.” Richard Botkin is the author of Ride the Thunder: A Vietnam War Story of Honor and Triumph.
According to the book description of Ride the Thunder: A Vietnam War Story of Honor and Triumph, “Richard Botkin breaks new ground in telling the heroic story of a few American and Vietnamese Marines who fought brilliantly and turned the tide of the Vietnam War, only to have policymakers surrender the battlefield. Botkin recounts the exploits of the American Marines and their Vietnamese allies who were largely responsible for thwarting the North Vietnamese invasion of the northern portions of South Vietnam known as the 'Easter Offensive of 1972' in the West that was intended to bring the nation to its knees. These are the men who 'rode the thunder' and almost saved a nation. Botkin tells the story of Captain John Ripley's daring raid to destroy the Dong Ha Bridge; Major Le Ba Binh and his seven hundred Marines bravely holding off more than 20 thousand North Vietnamese troops; Lieutenant Colonel Gerry Turley's leadership and bravery that helped thwart the Easter Offensive and much more.”
Commentator and journalist Stephen Nemo looks at the governments war on Americans dressed in the flag of the War on Poverty -- a war started by President Lyndon B. Johnson and, like Vietnam, not won Government top down.
Establishment Republicans join with Democrats to blur the distinctions between the political parties ahead of the midterm elections; Obama intends to emulate his Texas predecessor and it’s not George W. Bush.
And American's are left looking at the prospect of a third world unsubstaniable entitlement state.

Join us for an opportunity to see Afghanistan through the eyes of a professional photographer who was there and has now returned home.
Embedded photographer Robert Cunningham returned to Afghanistan to photograph history. He was the men of the 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army. The regiment saw substantial action in the European Theater of World War II. Since then, 502nd Infantry has served in the Vietnam War, the first Gulf War, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
The military ordered a strict limit on embedded photographers with only a handful of embeds, so it was a rare opportunity for him. Robert has been on the program in the past, talking about his experiences which he documented in a pictoral book "Afghanistan On The Bounce".
Warning: for mature listeners only... Tom sprinkles his dialogue liberally with the "F word" for emphasis.

"America was born in blood. America suckled on blood. America gorged on blood and grew into a giant, and America will drown in blood. This is the spectre that is haunting America, the spectre of Civil War II, a second civil war that will shatter America into several new ethnically-based nations." - opening passage of Civil War Two: The Coming Breakup of America which is acclaimed as required reading by Gun Rights activists from Rabbis to Skinheads... and everything in between.
Tom is an author, military analyst and former mercenary from New Jersey. He served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. He fought in the Rhodesian War and the Croatian War of Independence. Chittum predicts that the United States will soon face Balkanization and a second Civil War based on racial conflicts. He also says that he plans to move to upstate New York because it would likely still be a Caucasian-controlled area after the American Southwest effectively becomes part of Mexico due to immigration by 2020.
When it comes to all things maritime, sometimes one Sal is not enough.

A memoir begins with the need to tell a story. The story often contains a momentous life situation which the author needs to excavate and examine in order to discover how the event shaped his or her values and opinions. Telling the story in a way that readers can see themselves can create a healing experience for both the writer and the reader. In my case, I decided to break my silence about my husband's death in the Vietnam War.
Ruth W. Crocker, Ph.D is an author, writing consultant and expert on recovery from trauma and personal tragedy. Her book, Those Who Remain: Remembrance and Reunion After War describes her experience following her husband’s death in Vietnam and how she found resources for healing. An excerpt has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
