The Low Level Hell Podcast

I am new to the whole podcast thing, but I recently learned about this one.  It is hosted by a former Kiowa Warrior aviator, and features talk about various combat aviation with the actual servicemembers that lived the events.
I hope you'll check it out.

The Low Level Hell Podcast is available through several podcast providers:

The Purple Heart magazine, Jan/Feb 2021 edition

I am appreciative that the online-only magazine of The Military Order of the Purple Heart features my story on page 19 of the PDF. The article has excerpts from the book and a couple of pictures.

But I’m disappointed that the text I sent was modified & truncated. The article ends in the middle of a sentence. Two of the four pictures are mis-captioned. Sidebar text that should have been a short author bio was jumbled in with the body of the article.

The book’s website URL was left out of the article. The website, which you are currently reading, has more pictures (properly captioned), this blog, and ordering information.

Below is the link to the online magazine:

VFW Magazine

I’m pleased to report that my book has been included in the February 2021 issue of VFW Magazine’s “Book Corner” section.

Finally Home

12 December, 2013

I was dicharged from the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center in Augusta, GA and travelled home to my family at Fort Rucker, AL. With the help of my Fancy Cane, I shuffled proudly from the airplane to the terminal at the Dothan Regional Airport.

It had been 97 days since an IED changed my day, and my life. I still had months of physical therapy ahead of me, but now I was Home.

National Purple Heart Day

I fly the Star Spangled Banner at the house nearly every day of the year.

The 2 days of exception are today, National Purple Heart Day, and on September 7th, the anniversary of when I earned my Purple Heart Medal in 2013 near Shindand Air Base, Afghanistan.
