Welcome Stardust Listeners and thank you for joining us here on United We Roll this Tuesday, the 16th day of March, 2010!
Now, on to our show today, where we have two very interesting and in depth visits with 5 of our deployed Heroes of Freedom to share with you all. Remember, if you are not able to stay with us through the show this afternoon, it will repeat again tomorrow evening, Wednesday, March 17th at 6:30pm Central. In addition, an MP3 copy will be placed on our show archive site for listening and downloading. You can reach our archive site at www.stardustradio.info or through our full website at www.stardustradio.com. If you have noticed that the archive has been a little behind in recent shows, the server has had a technical problem, but we expect that to be fixed any time now and the site to be updated.
(2:10pm) Our first guests for today are all working together in the 332nd AEW DFAC (Dining Facility) Unit, though they come from different forces and even different units within those forces Joining us are Air Force Reserve Citizen Soldier SSG Melissa Mendoza, Army SGT Troy Curry and Army SSG Katrina Munoz. Despite the fact that these three deployed members all came from different places, they have hit the ground at Joint Base Balad as team members, working as if they had trained and been together for all their years of service rather than for a temporary deployment period. Imagine coming together with new team members to prepare enough meals to feed thousands of fellow service men and women three times per day, get a few hours of rest and then do it all again the next day. This is a very interesting visit as we will hear how local national employees are brought in for some duties by contractors, how this DFAC team keeps enough meals coming out as the hungry guests keep coming in and so much more.
(2:49pm) Our next visit is with two Air Force members who are currently deployed with the 506th ECS (Expeditionary Communications Squadron) and each guest brings so much detailed and interesting information to this visit. You will not want to miss any of this conversation. MSgt Jennifer M Anthony is also a First Sergeant, or you may have heard the term, First Shirt. This is a rewarding, but tough position because you must be many things to those who serve in your unit. I will quote MSgt Anthony as she best describes this position when she says: it’s like being a mother, a jail warden, a psychologist, cheerleader, doctor and best friend all wrapped up in one”. And the key to success is when to be which one of these personalities and to help those in your charge to succeed.
Our other guest from the 506th ECS is SSG Nicholas Kruse-Wright, who has a critical task of working on the communication equipment (tactical radios) that allow the Airmen outside the wire to communicate with each other and with the base. This 6 year Veteran is considering a career with the Air Force as you will hear. His reason for joining should give many of us goosebumps – He says that he “likes the old idea that you have to earn the right to be a citizen through public/military service”. What wisdom for a young man – and he has much more as you will hear during this great visit.
I would also like to acknowledge some folks who are always so helpful and were again this week: SMSgt Stefan Alford and SMSgt Martie Moore.
We are extremely honored to bring you these visits with our deployed Heroes of Freedom. And, we are very honored to have you, our listeners, join us each week.
As always, we wish to acknowledge and to thank all of the Public Affairs members who help us each and every week to set up these fantastic visits and, of course, all of our very special guests.
Our hearts and prayers go out to our military members, families, Veterans and to all of our first responders & their families - everyone who puts their lives on hold and on the line for us and our families.
We would like to invite our Veterans, active duty members, family members and anyone who is interested in health and legislative issues that effect those who protect our freedom to tune in to our other broadcasts – OFFE with Gene Simes and Jere Berry at 8pm Central on Tuesday nights and with Rick Townsend hosting Firebase Network Sundays at 6:00pm Central.
