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."
IRAQ - THE VIETNAM WAR OF THE 21ST CENTURY - THE PERPETUAL "SINK-HOLE"!
IRAQ - Is Just Another Way Of Saying --- It Really Ain't QUICK.
No Shit Sherlock.
No Fake Jake.
You Guessed Her Chester.
George Bush's ill-advised invasion of Iraq on March 20, 2003 was perhaps the biggest foreign policy blunder in our nation's history.
It opened up the Mother Of All Can-Of-Worms.
Is it any wonder that we are now confronted with something like ISIS? They were directly spawned out of this nation's decision to invade Iraq and in the process reduce her to rubble and near-total dysfunction.
Way to go America! The laws of the universe are not to be easily mocked and assuredly there will be atonement to pay by our country for many years to come.
It all goes back to that old saying - knowing when to say when.
Knowing When To Hold Them & When To Fold Them.
For The GOP - That's Just Asking For The Impossible!
After All --- The GOP IS IRAQ - Just Turned Inside Out!
The Upshot Is - America Simply Needs To Lose The GOP - Like A Love Gone Wrong! Or As That Old Blues Saying Goes --- Baby, I Dig You, But I Got To Put You Down!
In parallel efforts that in the Navy which led to Top Gun, the US Air Force looked hard at the lessons of air to air combat in the Vietnam War and brought forward "Red Flag,"
Moving beyond the technical focus, they looked to training and fundamentals to bring back a primacy of combat skills.
Our guest for the full hour to discuss this and his new book, The Air Force Way of War: U.S. Tactics and Training after Vietnam, will be Dr. Brian D. Laslie, Deputy Command Historian, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM).
A historian of air power studies, Dr. Laslie received his Bachelor’s degree in history from The Citadel: The Military College of South Carolina, his Master’s from Auburn University Montgomery in 2006 and his Doctorate from Kansas State University in 2013.
Dr. Laslie was Honorably Discharged from the United States Air Force in 2007 as a Captain after serving as a logistics officer, doctrine instructor, and Action Officer to the Commander of Air University.
On our episode today we will feauture the speech by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. titled "Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam!"
This speech would bear witness tha Dr. King's stances on the Vietnam War had shifted as he got even more bold to speak the truth the the government of the United States.
On August 27, 2009, Conversations with American Heroes at the Watering Hole will discuss the Vietnam War with former USMC Major Richard Botkin.
Former United States Marine Corps Major Richard Botkin “graduated from the University of Michigan's School of Business. He served from 1980 to 1995 on active and reserve duty as a Marine Corps infantry officer with units to include 2nd Battalion 7th Marines, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, and 4th Force Reconnaissance Company. His understanding for Southeast Asia has been enhanced by the nine medical/dental mission trips he helped to organize and lead to Cambodia between 1998 and 2007, and four trips to Vietnam, including one with his main Vietnamese character Le Ba Binh, to specifically do research for Ride the Thunder. Botkin currently lives with his family in northern California, where he is an investment advisor for a major brokerage firm.” Richard Botkin is the author of Ride the Thunder: A Vietnam War Story of Honor and Triumph.
According to the book description of Ride the Thunder: A Vietnam War Story of Honor and Triumph, “Richard Botkin breaks new ground in telling the heroic story of a few American and Vietnamese Marines who fought brilliantly and turned the tide of the Vietnam War, only to have policymakers surrender the battlefield. Botkin recounts the exploits of the American Marines and their Vietnamese allies who were largely responsible for thwarting the North Vietnamese invasion of the northern portions of South Vietnam known as the 'Easter Offensive of 1972' in the West that was intended to bring the nation to its knees. These are the men who 'rode the thunder' and almost saved a nation. Botkin tells the story of Captain John Ripley's daring raid to destroy the Dong Ha Bridge; Major Le Ba Binh and his seven hundred Marines bravely holding off more than 20 thousand North Vietnamese troops; Lieutenant Colonel Gerry Turley's leadership and bravery that helped thwart the Easter Offensive and much more.”
This episode is dedicated to two topics, the new bills in Congress for Blue Water Navy Veterans and a discussion regarding whether or not Medical Marijuana helps to relieve symptoms caused by agent orange illnesses. Our first guest will be retired Navy Commander John B. Wells, of the same law firm who wishes to address the new house bill HR969 and the new senate bill S. 681. The remainder of the show will be diedicated to discussion and debate concerning the efficacy and usefulness of marijuana in helping reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort among aging Vietnam veternas suffering from agent orange related diseases. I hope that we will have many live listeners and call in with questions or concerns.
TUNE IN :) So much to reveal, incuding an epic return, and a whole new army invading the Conflict MMA ranks. What more do could you expect from the 100th episode of your favorite SE MMA airwaves. BE THERE.
