Welcome Stardust Listeners and thank you for joining us on United We Roll this Tuesday, the 18th day of May, 2010 as we take time to honor those who serve our country and who protect our freedom!
We have three very full and very interesting visits with 4 of our Heroes of Freedom who are stationed in countries that may seem a world away, but really are quite close in many ways. The show will stay within our normal 2 hour period today, ending at 4:00pm Central – unless live radio has an unexpected surprise for us. Remember, if you are not able to stay with us through the show this afternoon, it will repeat again tomorrow evening, Wednesday, May 19th 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 on the United We Roll page at www.stardustradio.com.
(2:08pm) During our first visit today, we will be talking with Capt Tom Mulka who is currently deployed with the 376th AEW in a role much like a Human Resources Director, where he is in charge of a program that has become very successful since its inception in the Air Force about 5 years ago. This program is based around training and execution of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program, which addresses issues from the language that is used in the workplace and intensifies from there. It involves volunteers and unit members getting involved just in the day to day operations of their duty areas and more. It has had a great response and civilian corporations are now looking at this program as you will hear.
(2:40pm) Our next guests are currently deployed with the 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing Protocol Office at Joint Base Balad in Iraq. Joining us are SMSgt Firello White and SSG Laurel Filbert who will talk about the incredible detail and organization that is required when working in the Protocol office. These folks handle all the arrangements for visiting Dignitaries from military VIP’s to civilian guests, touring celebrities and whoever else comes to tour the base or meet the troops. It is coordination of meals, transportation, meetings, sleeping accommodations and more. This is one incredibly busy job and it does not end when you say goodbye to one group of visitors, as another may just be arriving.
(3:12pm) Our next and final visit for today is with a most inspirational young airman who is currently deployed with the 22nd EARS (Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron) at Manas Transit Center in Kyrgyzstan. SSG Joel Church has a job that is a bit different than most members with whom we have visited over the years. SSG Church is directly involved in the lifesaving equipment on board the plane that the flight crews rely on, both in regular flight, such as oxygen during high altitude flights, and emergency equipment. And that is only part of the job that makes this airman a key member of his flight crew.
Our hearts and prayers go out to all of 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 remind our Veterans, active duty members, family members and anyone who is interested in health and legislative issues that affect 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 also with Rick Townsend and Firebase Network Sundays at 6:00pm Central.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL & MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA!
