Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

You might be wondering why I haven't been a regular poster recently. Let me explain: I have a new(ish) job at KSRO Radio in the San Francisco Bay Area. For those who are only casual followers (and I know who you are) I voluntarily resigned my job at KSFO in San Francisco over a year ago. I wasn't happy there, and I decided to take an early retirement. I was all set-up to travel around the world with my fabulous husband Jack, and continue my volunteer work with Move America Forward, the largest pro-troops, grassroots group in the country. But my friend Michael O'Shay at KSRO called up and said "let's meet." The next thing I know is I'm the News Director and Morning Show Host, with editiorial control over the 3-hour long program and beyond. I could not be happier. In fact, I would say this is probably the most inspiring time of my professional career, or at least for many many years. I get to work with Jim Murphy, the Operations Manager for the Sonoma Media Group, Lawrence Amaturo, owner of SMG, and of course Michael, one of the finest broadcasters in the business. For those of you who remember Lee Rodgers, Melanie Morgan and Officer Vic, thanks for all your support over the years. Lee passed away two years ago, but Officer Vic and I have re-united at KSRO 1350 AM and 103.5 FM and we are having a blast. Check us out on our stream if you don't live in the area www.ksro.com and click on the listen live button.

In the meantime, I'll throw up some fun pictures that we've shot in the past 8 months. Any questions? Drop me a line.

xoxo, Mel

It looks like Code Pink activist Madea Benjamin of Berkeley is still stuck in the last decade. She busted into an event in Washington in which Former Vice President Dick Cheney was speaking, alongwith his daughter and wife Lynne. Protestors heckled the Cheney family, calling Cheney a 'war criminal'. Cheney defended the Bush Administration's decision to invade Iraq more than a decade ago saying, "I believed in it then. I look back on it now - it was absolutely the right thing to do." Cheney's wife Lynne brushed off the interruption, joking, "I wondered why the line (to the event) was so long."

(My last encounter with CodePink organizer Madea Benjamin in 2005)

At home, going to the grocery store is something we take for granted. Sometimes we may even consider it a chore depending how busy we are. But consider this: at this moment, our brave troops on the front lines do not have that luxury. Many times, they are told what to eat and when to eat it. What's more, many of the PX or BX (convenience stores on base where troops would normally get things like sun block and deodorant) have been shut down as part of President Obama's withdrawal timetable. Our troops have nowhere to get these useful items unless we send them.
