  • What People Are Saying About Military Mom Talk Radio

    "Buck Stienke and I were honored to be on Military Moms Talk Radio show last week. Wow! What a dedicated bunch of wonderful (and witty) ladies. We're proud to be a part of and associated with a group like Military Moms in support of and dedicated to our armed forces, both past and present. Oorah!" - Ken Farmer and Buck Stienke Co-Authors of the Black Eagle Force series. "Appearing on Military Mom Talk Radio was a fantastic experience. Sandra and her team were wonderful to work with. Programs such as this one are so important because they cut through the hype and sensationalism and offer real military families a chance to address the general public about the realities of military life. All too often, the media focus is on the hardships of military life, so it's refreshing to have an outlet like Military Mom Talk Radio where guests can share not only the challenges of military life, but also the rewards. Less than one percent of our citizens serve in the Armed Forces. Understandably, there's a huge military/civilian divide. With our country involved in two wars, we can all benefit from more programming featuring the stories of real military families." - Andi Hurley
  • Carolyn Blashek of Operation Gratitude

    Military families are our nation's treasure. Yet, spread around the world, they are not always aware of the great support they have here at home. One of the best ways Military families can learn about organizations such as Operation Gratitude is through radio shows like Military Mom Talk Radio that are available on Itunes and the Internet. Military Mom Radio is a great resource that can be downloaded anywhere and anytime, enabling our military to know they are appreciated and providing the civilian community opportunities to get involved in great causes.

Military Mom Talk Radio with Sandra Beck and Robin Boyd feature author Mike Guardia – Shadow Commander, Barbara Allen – Front Toward Enemy, and fitness coach Autumn Arnold, March 25th

Shadow_Commander_CoverIn a career which spanned over thirty years, Donald D. Blackburn was a true hero of the Army Special Forces.  Shadow Commander is his story.  Amidst the chaos of the American defeat on Bataan in April 1942, Army Captain Donald D. Blackburn escaped to the jungles of North Luzon, raising a remarkably effective guerrilla regiment known as “Blackburn’s Headhunters.” Blackburn’s World War II exploits were but the first in a storied life that took him to the highest echelons of the U.S. military.  Shadow Commander follows Blackburn from World War II to his days as a one of the pivotal figures in the development of America’s Special Forces.

Following World War II, Blackburn played a key role in initiating Special Forces operations in Southeast Asia, taking command of the highly classified Studies and Observations Group (SOG), which targeted Communist incursions along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. In the wake of the CIA’s disastrous Leaping Lena reconnaissance program, Blackburn revitalized Special Operations in Vietnam, and later conducted full-scale operations against the NVA and Viet Cong infiltrating the south via Laos.  Following his return to the U.S., Blackburn was appointed “Special Assistant for Counterinsurgency and Special Activities,” where he was the architect of the Son Tay Prison Raid, the largest Special Forces operation of the Vietnam War.

Mike Guardia is an Armor Officer in the United States Army.  He holds a BA and MA in American History from the University of Houston.  As an author, his interests include the history of guerrilla warfare, armored warfare, and World War II in the Pacific.  He is the author of the critically-acclaimed book American Guerrilla: The Forgotten Heroics of Russell W. Volckmann by Casemate Publishers, and the forthcoming US Army and Marine Corps MRAPs, scheduled for release this November from Osprey Publishing.  He is currently stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas.

FTEBarbara Allen is the widow of 1LT Louis Allen, who was killed in Iraq in June of 2005. Her award-winning book, “Front Toward Enemy” chronicles the personal and factual accounts of her husband’s murder at the hands of a fellow soldier, and the subsequent acquittal of his killer. How can American soldiers be at risk among their fellow soldiers? How could these murders have been prevented, and how could this government allow a killer to go free?
Front Toward Enemy is the personal and factual account behind the scenes of a case that is to the military judicial system what the O.J. Simpson case is to the civilian judicial system.

Barbara is currently at work on her second book, expected to be published in 2014. In addition to her work as an author and a freelance writer, Barbara is co-founder of Bold Biographies, a business dedicated to writing personal biographies for her clients to pass down in their families.

Barbara received a Masters degree in Criminal Justice from American Military University, and actively reaches out to other families grappling with the military judicial system. She continues to pursue the Purple Heart for her husband, as the government has thus far refused to classify Lou’s death as “Hostile.”  She resides in NY with her four boys.

A native Granite Stater, Michael Moffett has taught history and management courses on the high school, community college, and university levels. Moffett also served on active duty with the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment from 1983-85. He returned to active duty in 1990 as commanding officer for the Marine Reserve Detachment out of Topsham, Maine, later designated as A-Company of the 1st Battalion, 25th Marines. Captain Moffett led these Marines to the Persian Gulf where they were attached to the 1st Marine Division for Operation Desert Storm and the liberation of Kuwait. Lt Col Moffett again returned to active duty after the 9/11 attacks, serving on General Tommy Franks’ Operations Staff at Central Command.

Lt Col Moffett later served as Director of the Marine Corps Enlisted Commissioning Education Program’s (MECEP) Prep School from 2003-2008. He joined Marine Corps University’s History Division in 2008, where he co-authored a monograph on the history of the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center with Major General Orlo Steele (USMC, retired). In January 2010, LtCol Moffett received one-year orders to serve as a field historian in Afghanistan. After retiring from the Marine Corps Reserve in 2011, Professor Moffett returned to Concord, N.H., where he teaches at the New Hampshire Technical Institute (NHTI-Concord) and writes a column for the Weirs Times (www.weirs.com).

In 2012 Warriors Publishing Group published the critically-acclaimed “FAHIM SPEAKS: A Warrior-Actor’s Odyssey from Afghanistan to Hollywood and Back,” co-authored by Professor Moffett and Fahim Fazli, an interpreter Moffett met in Afghanistan. The book received the Gold Medal  for “Best Military Biography” from the Military Writers Society of America (MWSA) on Sept. 29, 2012.

Born and raised in Kabul, Afghanistan, Fahim Fazli enjoyed a relatively privileged childhood until the Russians invaded his country. As a young adult he supported the resistance and when he and his family got the opportunity they fled first to Pakistan and then eventually to the United States (in 1985). Forced to support his family, Fahim was not able to pursue his passion of acting right away.  Eventually, though, he found work as a Hollywood  extra in 1987. Sixteen years later he finally earned a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) card which positioned him for speaking roles.  Since 2003 Fahim has appeared in numerous movie and television productions, and has also served as a cultural/technical advisor for several movie productions. Most recently, he played an Iranian militant in Ben Affleck’s film “Argo,” which was released on Oct. 12.  Fahim currently lives in Orange County, California, and continues his work in television and movies. His memoir, Fahim Speaks, was released in March of 2012.
