    Military Monday with John D. Gresham With USNI Press Author Benjamin Armstrong

    in History

    In 2013, Benjamin F. "BJ" Armstrong, a career naval officer and aviator, wrote/edited the book 21ST CENTURY MAHAN, published by the U.S. Naval Institute Press (USNI Press – @USNIBooks). Widely reviewed and extremely well received, the book was based upon the premise that the ideas presented in the writings of American seapower theorist Alfred Thayer Mahan were still relevant in the 21st century, more than a century after the publication of his seminal work, THE INFLUANCE OF SEAPOWER UPON HISTORY. Armstrongs book revived a lively discussion about the relevance and merits of seapower in the present day, and the idea that the tenets Mahan put forth in the late 1800s, were still relevant in a world being defined by new technologies and emerging world powers.


    Now, in 2015, Armstrong has published a new book in what has become USNI Press's emerging "21st Century" series of books with 21ST CENTURY SIMS, based upon the career and writings of Adm. William Sims. A true among the naval leaders of the early 20th century, Sims is less well known for his vast published works on naval leadership, particularly as they apply to junior officers. Now Mr. Armstrong has collected and edited them, in a compact work that provides new insights into this fascinating military personality from a century ago.


    This week, Benjamin Armstrong joins author, historian, journalist, and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) on Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) to talk about his new book, along with his editorship of the new "21st Century" book series for USNI Press. This should be a lively hour of history, books, and publishing, and listeners are invited to call in and discuss their ideas and questions with both gentlemen.

    Military Monday With John D. Gresham and Author Mike Haskew – Appomattox

    in Lifestyle

    As the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War winds down, there are still some important events that enthusiasts and historians are looking forward to. Arguably, one of the most important was the showdown between the Union Army of the Potomac, and Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. What had begun in 1864 at the Battle of the Wilderness, had turned into the bloody Overland Campaign that had ended with the two armies facing off near the town of Petersburg, Virginia. There both sides had dug in, and a monotonous trench warfare reminiscent of World War I had developed. And despite occasional Union attempts to break the Confederate trench lines, the stalemate had prevailed through early 1865. There, in March and April, the Union forces finally managed to break out, beginning a desperate race by both armies into Southwestern Virginia. For weeks the pursuit continued, with Gen. Ulysses S. Grant's forces gradually encircling Lee's Army. Finally, at Appomattox Court House, the pursuit ended, and Gen. Lee conceded defeat. It was the beginning of the end of America's bloodiest war, one that still touches us deeply.


     To learn more about the Appomattox Campaign, please tune in to Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) hosted by best-selling author, historian, journalist, game designer, and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@greshamj01). His guest this week will be respected Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author and historian Mike Haskew. Mr. Haskew is the author of the new book APPOMATTOX, a single volume history of the campaign that ended the American Civil War. Mr. Haskew will describe the nuances of the campaign, including many of the personal stories and background that are rarely told outside the historian community. Listeners are encouraged to call in, and offer questions and comments on this fascinating final military campaign of America's bloodiest war.

    MMSRS #33 - Military Ball Etiquette and the Male MilSpouse

    in Military

    Join host Dave Etter and various callers as they discuss military ball etiquette and how it pertains to the male military spouse. Questions always arise what to wear, where to obtain, what is appropriate, etc. Also, who does what in various ball program events like toasts, receiving line, posting of colors, grog bowl, etc. So, if you were wondering what is different for us guys, this is the broadcast/podcast to listen to! Live call-in number is (516) 453-9167, join us!


    MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based radio show, hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Airs Fridays at Noon CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.

    USS Frank E. Evans DD754 Memorial Program


    GUEST HOST: PAUL SHERBO, Author


    Unsinkable Sailors:  The fall and rise of the last crew of  USS Frank E. Evans


    Paul Sherbo will be joining us as our Guest Host to commemorate the forty-fifth anniversary of the June 3, 1969 sinking of the USS Frank E. Evans a United States Navy destroyer, struck by the Australian aircraft carrier HMAS Melbourne. 


    Operating as part of a combined force with the Royal Australian Navy and other allied naval ships, the Evans executed a starboard turn into the path of Melbourne at 0315 a.m. on June 3, 1969 and was cut in half by the heavier and larger war ship.  Evans’ broken off bow section sank almost immediately taking 73 unfortunate crewmembers with it.  Only one body was recovered in the aftermath of the collision, bringing the total lost to 74.  Out of the 273 crewmembers on board, 199 survived.


    The stern section, although severely damaged, remained afloat. The courage and heroic spirit of both ships' crews add a genuine admiration for their bravery despite their confusion in the sudden turn of events.


    We’ll be talking with former crew members who will provide updates on the groups activities and the drive by the USS Frank E. Evans DD754 Association members to have the ‘Lost 74” names added to the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
