    For aviation enthusiasts around the world, there is no greater thrill than the rare chance to watch and hear a flying warbird on a sunny afternoon at an airshow. Such sights and sounds are becoming rarer every day, as more of these vintage aircraft are either grounded or lost to accidents. However, there is one special place and collection which is keeping the practice of flying warbirds alive today: The Flying Heritage Collection. Based in Everett, Washington, the collection is owned by Microsoft cofounder and billionaire Paul Allen, who has placed his fortune and reputation into building the finest collection of flying vintage aircraft in the world.


    To learn more about the Flying Heritage Collection (@flyingheritage) join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitartMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream) today at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is Zenith Press (@ZenithPress) writer Cory Graff, a curator at the Flying Heritage Collection and author of the new book FLYING WARBIRDS. Together they will discuss this fascinating collection of "vintage flying iron," and provide listeners with some real insights into the care and feeding of these rare artifacts.

    Guns, rifles, and other firearms have been an important part of American culture and history, long before there was a United States of America. It is no surprise that when the founding fathers wrote the U.S. Constitution, right after free speech, a free and independent press, and the right of free association, the right to own and bear personal firearms was right at the top of the list of American citizen rights. Sadly, not all Americans have embraced this right lawfully, or with a sense of community. These are the individuals we know as "Outlaws."


    Over the centuries, Americans have frequently idealized and romanticized outlaws both in legend and written history. In the old American West, they had names like "Billy the Kid," "the James Gang," and Wyatt Earp. During the interwar period and Great Depression of the 20th century, outlaws took on a "Robin Hood" mystique which along with weak state and federal firearms laws and law enforcement, allow them to roam the countryside taking what they wanted. And through it all, from the 19th century today, they all had one common thing linking them: Guns.


    To learn more about American outlaws and the guns that made them both famous and notorious, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham for Military Monday at 1 p.m. EST. His guests today will be the noted Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) husband-and-wife writing team, Gerry and Janet Souter. They will be discussing their new book GUNS OF OUTLAWS, which chronicles the famous firearms of American outlaws over the past several centuries. In addition to the more famous outlaws and gains most people are familiar with, Gerry and Janet will talk about some of the lesser-known criminals and gunfighters over the years.

    Take 1,000 aviation historians/enthusiasts and ask them to list 10 favorite airplanes, and there is a 100% chance that on everyone's list will be one or more of the famous Lockheed "Blackbird" family of aircraft. Beautiful, sleek, clandestine, extremely fast, and even sexy to the eye, the Blackbirds were among the most iconic and well-known airplanes of the Cold War. Beginning with the CIA requirement to replace the U-2 "Dragon Lady" in the 1950s, Clarence "Kelly" Johnson and his famous team at the Lockheed " Skunk Works" created a family of airplanes whose performance has never been equaled since being retired. Starting with the single-seat A-12 for the Central Intelligence Agency in the early 1960s, Johnson and his Skunk Works team created airplanes that went higher, faster, were "stealthy," and were light years ahead of anything else in the sky. Sadly, in the end, it was not any enemy capabilities that killed the Blackbirds, but high operating costs and an indifferent Congress that failed to see the worth of keeping them flying. Today, Blackbirds are the pride and joy of museums across America, where they stand as testament to the national requirements of gathering intelligence over denied territory during the Cold War.


    To learn more about the Lockheed Blackbirds, the people who flew and maintained them, the clandestine missions they conducted during the Cold War, and the amazing technologies behind them , join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 P.M. Eastern time. His guest this week will be retired U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, along with Blackbird and Dragon Lady driver Col. Richard Graham. Graham is the author of four books on the Blackbirds with Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press).

    2014 has been a rough year for military personnel and members of the veterans community. The year began with a budget crisis, following a government shutdown and over five years without a signed and approved Federal Budget. And while some sense of fiscal responsibility seems to have finally come to the White House and Congress, things for those who still serve, and have served, continue to go from bad to worse. Forced drawdowns of active-duty military personnel continue, despite escalations of enemy action in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. The Department of Veterans Affairs, despite the firing of its top leadership and years of saying that they are, "working the problems," in fact was proven in 2014 to be a criminally corrupt and morally bankrupt organization totally failing in their chartered mission. And as if to punctuate the continuing downward spiral for individuals who serve and have served, service/veterans benefits continue to be eroded in the Fiscal Year 2015 budget, which offers only a paltry 1% pay increase to those who go into harms way for America.


    To get a better sense of just what military personnel and veterans will be facing in the coming year, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@Greshamj01) for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest co-host this week will be journalist Donna Lyons. Herself a military/veterans spouse, Ms. Lyons writes extensively about the service/veterans community, and has her own intriguing observations regarding their present day experiences and service. Callers are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions to Mr. Gresham and Ms. Lyons, in an hour that we are dedicating to those who serve, those who have served, and those who will serve. Please join us.

    For people who grew up in the middle of the 20th Century, space travel/exploration has been something of a disappointment since the lunar landings of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The promises of commercial space travel, promoted in such feature films as Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODDESSY have never been realized, and man's toehold in space has been limited to near-earth ventures like the International Space Station (ISS) and the American Space Shuttle program that was shut down several years ago. In a word, disappointing.


    However, the 21st Century has finally begun to deliver on the promises made by people like President John F. Kennedy and Werner von Braun, thanks to a number of pioneering commercial space ventures that are rapidly beginning to deliver results. Companies like Orbital Sciences and SpaceX, are already providing resupply and retrieval services to NASA for the ISS. And sometime in 2017, SpaceX will fly their first manned mission aboard their own U.S.-built Falcon 9 rocket. These rapid and well conceived programs have not gone without incident however, as demonstrated by the recent accidents involving Orbital Sciences and Virgin Galactic's boosters and spacecraft. Nevertheless, these bold ventures, led by men like Richard Branson and Elon Musk are pushing ahead, and look to be back sometime in 2015.


    To learn more about the coming revolution in commercial space projects, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) i for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author Piers Biznoy, and they be discussing his new book. NEW SPACE FRONTIERS. Together they will discuss the current crop of commercial space ventures, recent setbacks and successes, and the long-term viability of space as a commercial enterprise arena.

    Military Monday with John D. Gresham With Zenith Press Author Gavin Mortimer

    in Military

    The United States, while a late entrant into World War I, began to contribute to the Allied war effort in 1916 and 1917 with volunteers who wanted to fight the German forces as combat aviators. These first "American Eagles," initially joined up with the French Armié de Aire's famous Lafayette Escadrille, but soon began to join the fledgling Royal Flying Corps/ Royal Air Force (RAF). By the time of America's entry into the "Great War," a sizable force of Americans were already flying, fighting, and dying over the trenches of France and the low countries. There they helped hold the line until 1918, when American flying units began to reach the front. Throughout 1918, these Americans helped hold the line against the great German "Michael" Offensive, and later that summer helped the Allies take the offensive along the entire Western front, leading to the victory of November 1918.


    To learn more about these very first American combat aviators, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week will be renowned Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author and historian Gavin Mortimer (@gavinmortimer7). The writer of a number of military history books, Mr. Mortimer is the author of THE FIRST EAGLES, a gripping chronicle of those early volunteer American aviators who served on the Western front in 1917 and 1918. Listeners are encouraged to call in with questions and opinions for Mr. Mortimer, which should make for a lively hour of classic aviation history as America begins its run up to remembering the Great War.

    In the U.S. Military, there is no more revered or respected award for service than the Medal of Honor. Given only to service members who have exhibited the quality of going, "Above and Beyond the Call of Duty," the Medal of Honor represents the pinnacle of America's appreciation for military service in combat. Since being created 150 years ago during the American Civil War, the Medal of Honor has evolved a great deal. At one time it was awarded to whole Union regiments for mass re-enlistments. Today however, a successful Medal of Honor award is a long and complex procedure, which not only looks at the individual act of valor being considered, but also the entire previous life and military career of the candidate. This is how carefully protected and held, the Medal of Honor has become.


     To learn more about the Medal of Honor and its evolution, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on @Writrstream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week will be author Robert George, part of the team assembled by Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) and the Boston Publishing Company (@TheVietnamExp) to develop their new book, THE MEDAL OF HONOR.  Beautifully produced and lavishly illustrated, this book is a "must have" for any serious scholar or person interested in the Medal of Honor, its history, and the men who have earned the right to wear it. Listeners are encouraged to call in, and often both questions and opinions in what will be an hour devoted to the men who have gone, "… Above and Beyond the Call of Duty."
