This is a serious time and it is not an easy decision for the President to get involved in International squabbles with military support. We are making our way out of two wars that have taken over seven thousand live of young American men and women.
Military Author Radio is proud to feature the author of the acclaimed history The Nisei Soldier, Edwin “Bud” Nakasone who brings special credentials to his task of writing this book.
Born in Hawaii, Nakasone witnessed the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. After graduating high school he served in the United States Army as an interpreter during the Occupation of Japan in 1947-48. Now a retired colonel, US Army, Nakasone taught aboard US Navy vessels at sea as an adjunct professor for NCPACE—the Navy’s college afloat.
He has travelled widely, authored many papers, several books and produced videos on WWII. He is the recipient of two Fulbright Grants, one to Japan in 1965, the second to India in 1981.
His popular dramatization, Pearl Harbor Remembered, is widely acclaimed and has been presented to hundreds of schools, colleges, clubs and military and veterans’ groups.
In his acclaimed book, The Nisei Soldier, Professor Nakasone brings to life a part of history that has been neglected—the account of Japanese-American soldiers, the Nisei, as they fought bravely for their country despite the discrimination accorded them by the people and government of the U.S.A. Nakasone’s narrative is rich in descriptive detail, based not only upon his own experiences but extensive interviews he had with the soldiers of whom he writes as well.
Historian Edwin M. Nakasone is a University of Minnesota graduate and a professor emeritus of Century College, White Bear Lake, MN, teaching World War II history, Asian history and Asian Pacific American History.

Butch has been an Independent Researcher since 1989 when he, along with 4 other people, witnessed a UFO of unbelievable size quietly hover above a mountain in Tucson, Arizona. It was totally silent. Burn Copper in color and at least three football fields in length. It moved slowly up and down, then rose upwards, moved forward, and then vanished at lightning speed. They all agreed on what we had just seen. However, calls to the Sheriffs Dept., the news media, and the local Air Force base yielded no sighting reports. He began my own investigation into the UFO Phenomenon on that day.
After joining MUFON, he was able to dig deeper into past and existing cases and pursue even more on site investigations, but my research was still lacking something and he wasn’t getting to the crucial answers that he was seeking.
It was time to go about this work in a different manner, and after almost a year of serious reflection and consideration, he started the UFO Research Center of Pennsylvania in 2009 and brought together some of the best like-minded researchers he could find.
The use of multi-disciplined investigators enhanced the fact finding like no other group. The primary objective is to pursue both the historical cases and new cases that arise with hopes of bringing resolution to some of these cases of High Strangeness. They have since fielded two fully equipped mobile units and have affiliate groups in nine states and one in Europe.

How many times have you been to a black owned business and either was displeased with the service or a lack thereof? How many times have you went to yelp or the white pages and took the time to right a good review of a black owned business? If you can count on one hand then that's a reality check. Is it the fault of our own or the business owner that we didn't have a pleasant experience at their business? Did that one bad experience turn us off to any future dealings with black establishments? Do we think that other races, white, chinese, jews, have a better quality service or product? It is something to think about. Maintaining or starting a business is a challenge in itself but when you add the race card on top of that, it then becomes a double challenge. We then, just like everything else, have to work extra hard to avoid or put an end to that stigma that black business just don't offer the same quality service as their competitors. Hopefully this show will shed light on how we can make the black business support / experience much more enjoyable. Other races have support from their races, how great would it be to get that same love and support for our own. Call in at (347) 855-8637 to share an experience as a patron, business owner or share a positive review with a black business that you just recently visited. Let's start a riot!

Lots of people believe that men and women grieve and heal differently. The fact of the matter, and the research for that matter as well, does not support this notion. Our grieving and healing styles are not based on body parts and chromosomes. Sure, biology, socilization, family and community influences play a role;yet at the end of the day, much like our personality and temperment, the manner in which we heal and grieve is as unique as our finger print.
