Our Turn – Military Salute
All gave some. Some gave all.
Now it’s Our Turn to salute those who’ve served in our Armed Forces. May is Military Appreciation Month and at TalkRadio 1330 WEBY ▪ FM99.1 we want to recognize our active military members, and our Veterans, including those who are retired and deceased. From May 18 through May 31, we will be mentioning service members on the air, throughout the day. And we will be listing their names here, along with photos. Just fill out the information below and submit. Thank you for participating! Attaching a photo with your submission will be considered permission to display here. You’re name will not be made public by entering a service member.
We may not know them all but we owe them all. Now it’s Our Turn to thank them all.

She has dedicated the last 10 rs of her life to developing programming and addressing the needs of returning soldiers.
She established the first ever Veterans subcommittee with ECOH to address homeless Veterans. Michelle was also recognized by Evan Williams company as one of the top 10 finalists out of over 4000 veterans in this country that are making a difference.
Michelle’s organization established Veteran Centered Care and an Integrated Approach for community resources for Veterans. She continues to work to access the gaps in services to veterans. Michelle continues to lead the charge in Establishing a Monument to honor 25% of the Military which is now Women & the 2.3 Million Women who have been serving in combat since 1948.

Sergeant in United States Marine Corps, Retired
My son-in-law Anthony Rivas, served for 13 years in the United States Marine Corp. He was deployed 7 times to support Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. After several close calls, a bullet hole and many invisible wounds of war, he returned to civilian life. We are all very proud of his commitment and that he is now part of our family. Albeit a civilian, Anthony still brings that Marine Corp discipline to all of us. But, as his father-in-law and Commanding Officer of the Family, I order him call me “General”!
