SORT BY Relevancy
(Aired March 12th but due to audio problems-new interview)
Gary Skogen’s tour in Vietnam (1971–72) was the best year of his life. Living with fellow CID investigators in an isolated hooch overlooking the South China Sea at the U.S. base at Chu Lai, Skogen enforced military drug laws during his working hours and yet managed to pursue a life of perfect hedonism—far from the farm life in southwestern North Dakota where he grew up. With unlimited access to cheap beer, a wide variety of compliant Vietnamese women, and a jeep he had somehow commandeered, Skogen perfected his criminal investigative skills at a time when U.S. troop morale had reached its nadir.
This unconventional, unheroic, and unapologetic book is not a typical Vietnam memoir. Together with 80 percent of the two million men and women who served in Vietnam, Skogen spent his time behind the scenes at a large support base. He did not slog on midnight patrols through Viet Cong tunnels or rice paddies studded with booby traps. He spent his year investigating the men who endangered the lives of their fellow soldiers by giving themselves over to unrestrained drug use.
Skogen’s gritty narrative proves that some whose names are incised on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall died in less than heroic circumstances. Backed by impeccable research in the files of the National Archives and Records Administration, this unromanticized account reveals the sordidness of the war in its late phases, and questions the validity of seeing all Vietnam veterans as victims. NOT ALL HEROES-An Unapologetic Memoir of The Veitnam War, 1971-72-Gary Skogen

In Imperial Rome, many individual gods had temples dedicated to them. However, there were a number of pantheons--in Greek pan means for "all" and theos for "god"--that were temples for the worship of all the Roman gods. The most famous of these temples, known today simply as the Pantheon, was begun in Rome about 27 B.C. by the statesman and general Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa. He intended it to be a temple in classic style, but after a fire in the 2nd century A.D. the emperor Hadrian had it completely rebuilt as the present imposing circular building of elaborate brickwork. It is noted for its massive dome, the largest Roman dome to survive intact. Until modern times the Pantheon's dome was the largest in the world, with a diameter of some 43 meters (142 feet). The dome was mostly made of concrete containing pozzuolana, a volcanic earth that, when mixed with lime, became waterproof and extremely durable. The Pantheon was conserated as a Christian church in A.D. 609. It is now dedicated to Saint Maria Rotonda. With the rise in the belief of one God, the meaning a pantheon changed. In France, the world's other remaining pantheon-- the domed, cruciformPantheon-- was originally designed in 1759 as the Church of Sainte-Genevieve in Paris. But was secularized in the 19th century and is now a civil temple of honor for the nation's heroesand famous men.
NO ATHEIST should be afraid to say "I AM AN ATHEIST." I tallk to atheists all over the world that have a difficult time "coming out" as an atheist. Some will be murdered if they do. Others would be shunned or disowned by their families. Even in th USA it is illegal in some states for atheists to hold office. This is a crime. We need to stick together and we need to help others like ourselves to embrace their atheism. We ask atheists to tell their personal stories of how they came to atheism and how they deal with the blowback of trying to be open about their atheism. Our stories can help others make that leap of unfaith.
Join us tonight as we continue with the epistle of John and his teaching on practical Christian living! Every chapter outlines the "how-to" applications for walking, talking, living and promoting the light as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Amazingly we hear about the newest fad of being mentored by a life coach for success and happiness. But why employ a one dimensional "life coach" who is dealing with the very same failures and insecurities you are? Call us tonight with your life questions as we continue with our line upon line therapeutical teaching of John chapter 3 LIVE, on "All Things Biblical"!!!!!
