US Troop Tribute episode XIX, The Great Unknowns Podcast and News Update

This week is a special US Troop Tribute dedication episode to honor the men and women fighting in Iraq.

A few weeks ago, I recieved a request from Spc. Stephen Reed, who recently came home after serving several consecutive tours in Iraq. "You should say something to the troops in Iraq. I just got back, and love your work," said Reed.

To my surprise, there are several soldiers that listen to my show in Iraq.

So, in light of this request, I thought, it would be fitting to dedicate an entire show to the men and women fighting for our country in an unforgiving hostile country.

After speaking to several music artists within my arsenal, many argeed that it was a good idea and glady approved my request. So, I listened to a full library of music and found several songs that fit this theme perfectly. Along with photos from Spc. Reed, phone calls from soldiers currently serving in Iraq, and several phone calls from friends and family members here in the United States, made this episode all the more enjoyable and very personal.

So, in honor of the men and women serving in the armed forces, please enjoy this special tribute.

Next week, I will return with my normal show format.
