Hello from Sandra Adams. Black Man Clay and I will talk about the Vietnam War and his days in the life there in the Air Force. Some may say becoming Black Man Clay may have been the result of post-tramatic stress or the symptoms of Agent Orange. We'd like to know! Be sure to call in with any questions. Perhaps you have a family member who served during this war. (or any other)
We will also talk about some of his music on the CD, Trippin Through the Universe.

Since its dedication in 1982, the memorial has been one of the most visited monuments, honoring the fallen as a cultural icon. However, there was also a great deal of controversy at the time of its inception, with some dismissing it as "a nihilistic slab of stone." The designer, Maya Lin, was also criticized for her ethnicity, spurring a battle in Congress.

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."
In November, we observe Veterans Day. Many do not realize that National Adoption Month is also in November. Both are very important observances. Those who have served in the military are our heroes, as are those who have opened their hearts and homes to children in need of a family.
David Cordeau, a Vietnam veteran, will share his story with us. He miraculously survived many dangers during the war. Now, he pastors a church and travels nationally and internationally sharing the Gospel. He even travels to Vietnam to preach.
Anne Knapp and her husband, Dan, have five children, two of whom they adopted from Haiti. Their lives are more complete as a result of adding Ednel and Ronald to their homes, but the adoption process certainly came with challenges. Tune in to hear their story.

Are there lessons one can learn from the most exceptional edges of the military experience that can be useful to the civilian world?

During the Vietnam War, the United States military sprayed millions of gallons of Agent Orange and other herbicides on trees and vegetation. Several decades later, concerns about the health effects from these chemicals continue. One of the groups impacted by Agent Orange Dioxin poisoning is the servicemen who were at sea. These brave men are often referred to as Blue Water Navy, which includes Coast Guard and Fleet Marine personnel. Although it has been over forty years, there are still so many servicemen as well as their offspring who continue to suffer due to Agent Orange Dioxin poisoning. While the United States Veterans Administration offers “eligible Veterans”, a free Agent Orange Registry health exam to assess possible long-term health problems related to exposure, gathering the information is quite a task. However, there are people out there who are doing everything they can to help our veterans get the help that they need. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Mr. John J. Bury, a retired US Navy and Vietnam War Veteran. He is going to talk about Agent Orange Dioxin poisoning and his work as an advocate, helping others that have also been affected. Do you like FREE stuff?

During the heyday of CBS News in the 1960s and 1970s, he was often cited as "the most trusted man in America" after being so named in an opinion poll. He reported many events from 1937 to 1981, including bombings in World War II; the Nuremberg trials; combat in the Vietnam War; Watergate; the Iran Hostage Crisis; and the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, civil rights pioneer Martin Luther King, Jr., and Beatles musician John Lennon.

As far back as the historical record goes, human existence on planet earth has been shaped and arguably defined by war. On the most significant level, i.e. the experience of those most directly and painfully affected by it, war is nothing more than the wanton slaughter of large numbers of human beings, the majority of them civilians, for no good reason. Aldous Huxley pointed out the absurdity of war when he said:
"The most shocking fact about war is that its victims and its instruments are individual human beings, and that these individual beings are condemned by the monstrous conventions of politics to murder or be murdered in quarrels not their own."
If war is not then in the interest of the average human being, why does it keep happening and what do the "mostrous coventions of politics" referred to by Huxley have to with this repeating pattern of war-making?
In early 2003, at least 11 million people in cities around the world took to the streets to protest against the planned invasion of Iraq. But their voices, and that of the silent majority they represented, were completely ignored by the political elite. Less than 10 years later, 1.5 million Iraqis lie dead and world wide terrorism has increased. So who benefits?
Join your hosts on Behind the Headlines this Sunday October 25th 2015 3-5pm EST 8-10pm CET as we explore the hidden hand behind the push for perpetual war.
