"The premier Political and Issue Driven Talk Show on Weekend Radio"
To those that have served and serve today… We are grateful and thank you–you that stood and stand today, to defend our right to be free.
“As a veteran, I am most honored to have worn the uniform and humbled to have been allowed to serve my country”.
I’ve listed on this page a few organizations that I can personally recommend to my listeners. I have a close connection to each of these organizations and know them well. Many of the founders have served or are family of those that served, are serving today or have fallen. These organizations are all about supporting our troops, active, veteran and/or the families. Remember: Each member of the United States Armed Forces has volunteered, willingly, to stand on your and my behalf. Some return unharmed, some not so and some return in flag draped coffins. But all should return to the vocal sounds of “welcome home” and “thank you”; to smiles of appreciation and to generous expressions of giving from grateful hearts. Rudi says “Give to those in need—until none need.”

A REMINDER FROM RUDI:
Replace a tear of loneliness with a tear of joy on the face of a soldier, sailor, airman or marine. Let them know you care. Support these worthy causes. Donate money and volunteer your God-Given talents and time. GET INVOLVED! When it’s about our military sons and daughters, don’t be indifferent; donate and YOU WILL make a difference.
Members of this organization are in every state and an additional 49 foreign countries. Find an organization near you and get involved with giving of your time and needed items. Your freedom isn’t granted, it is earned by their service.
Rudi K says: This organization, under Ray and Karen Stark’s guidance, is right at the top of my list as ‘MOST FAVORITE’ “
The founders and active participants of Heroes Hunting are seasoned combat veterans with multiple tours in theater and some have also come home after surviving near fatal injuries. Today, these individuals reach out to help others returning, by giving them one-on-one time, in casual surroundings and outdoor activities that are conducive to relating stories that need to be told for the healing process that eventually allows them to “come home”.
They stand firm on finding solutions and seeking accountability so more veterans and their families receive the services they have earned, while rooting out waste and inefficiencies. Current issues involve the VA Caregiver Program, general VA staff accountability, specific VAMC deficiencies, and revising policy to make sense of misused guidelines. Veteran Warriors consider all Veterans united: “One Family, One Fight”. Veteran Warriors serves all 22,000,000+ veterans with no divisiveness among service branches, gender, era, race or character of service (combat or non-combat).
Donate your old cell phone – they will sell it and use the proceeds to purchase prepaid calling cards for deployed soldiers to call home. Just to be able to hear a loved one’s voice can do wonders to dissipate the loneliness that many soldiers feel when they are far from home.
The founder of this organization was our panel’s pick as the “Person of the Year” for 2011. Founded by Taryn Davis, this non-profit, is dedicated to those who lost their husband to combat. There is an emphasis on healing through sharing stories, tears and laughter–Military widow to military widow.
