A Late Memorial Day Post and Podcast

A good friend and true American Hero, Jerod Dennis, KIA Shkin Afghanistan 25 Apr 2003. Jerod was killed during an ambush that wounded several other members of my unit and demonstrated incredible valor in his actions to prevent further casualties, and cut off the escape of the perpetrators of the ambush. Also killed in action that day was one of our attached Air Force Combat Controllers, A1C Raymond Losano.

Jerod was awarded the Silver Star posthumously for his actions that day, and he will never be forgotten by myself or any of the others who were fortunate enough to serve with him. He was an exemplary individual, and a true hero.

As a note, Jerod would love me pointing out that we can all see his “nut sack” in the above photo of him with his trusty M249 SAW (give yourself a pat on the back if you get the reference).

I apologize for getting this Memorial Day podcast up late this year, the holiday isĀ an important, and very busy one for me.

Above is a shot of yours truly saluting the flag during my VFW post’s Memorial Day celebration. I had the prestigious job of ringing the bell after the name’s of each of the 431 fallen post members were read.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend festivities, and I hope you enjoy this episode of the ‘cast as I spend some time with Greyskull Trainee “Dan the Scientist”, and answer some forum member questions.
