Episode-315- The Real Story of Veterans Day

Much of today’s show is a re-broadcast of last year but there are some new things included.  Take time today and think about all the sacrifices made by our vet, thank a vet and expect something different at the end of today’s show.

I used last years audio only because it said all that needed to be said.  To all vets out there that listen to TSP this show is especially for you, thank you for your service and thank you for the honor you so clearly demonstrate.  Thank you also for listening to TSP, that indeed is an honor for me to know how many vets out there find TSP worth taking time to listen to.

Episode-90- The Veterans Day Show

The notes for this show will be very brief as it is simply a show dedicated to our Veterans with a background on why we celebrate Veteran’s Day on November, 11th.  They guns fell silent on the “11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918”.  Yes it sounds cool but setting it up that way cost thousands of additional lives on World War 1!  Just one example of the sacrifices soliders make for the vanity of those in government.

We also announce our first sponsor of the listener appreciation contest today.  SOE Tactical Gear, tune in Friday to get a chance to win a tactical stocking like the ones shown below.

We will also talk about a new program I would like us to all consider participating in “Stockings for Soliders”.
