One unique aspect of this war is that it never officially ended, and the ramifications of the events are still in place today. A list of sources as well as maps is available on this episode's page...

Nixon takes the reigns of Presidential burden and responsibility from the hands of Lyndon Baines Johnson. The most daunting task ahead of the nation and the new administration, to no one's surprise, is the looming war in...

The reality that they were in a war that was neither winnable nor popular was no longer a "sweep it under the rug" thought for them. They reached the crucial point where we (looking back from today) see the...

Special Episode: Interview with William Timmons Although this podcast is not an interview format show (usually), I had the chance to sit down with a State Senator from South Carolina who is running for Congress in the upcoming election.

The Vietnam War (Part I): The Dominos Begin to Fall

3/22/2018

The Vietnam War (Part I) The analogy of Domino's falling is admittedly a lazy subtitle on our part. That said, even though it rings as a loud cliché it is easily the most appropriate way to describe the entire American involvement in the Indochina (Vietnam), South Asia and overall struggle against the "un-ceasing" growth of communism. Part One of the series provides the context that is necessary to glean the story out of the Indochina conflict. Without understanding not only how, but why...

Eastern Airlines Flight 855: The Miracle over Miami. This is the story of how a commercial jetliner was able to avoid utter disaster over the ocean and safely land in Miami, all 172 passengers and crew along with it. The story is one that is close to home for me as it features my grandfather, Captain Steve C. Thompson, as the main character in this near tragedy. He was a man I grew up with in the same house for more than 16 years and was a father to me. The reason I am choosing to tell...
