Our Mission for 15 years since December 2005 was to help Military Service members, Veterans, First Responders, their Families, Supporters and more with our TalkingwithHeroes Talk Shows and ThankYouforYourService.US Non Profit National Resource website to be Re Launched in 2021.
This Rebuilt site will Feature resources on PTSD, TBI, suicide prevention, helping Homeless Veterans, about Military and Veteran Support Organizations, Companies Hiring and/or Helping those who Serve(d), Podcasts, Audio and Video Programs, Available Jobs, Help with Small Business information and much more. Organizations and others will be able to Register their Sites with information including their website and social media information.
With the rebuilt site we will also have info on our new Board of Directors and our NEW Video Program Hosts including when we will be relaunching our NEW TalkingwithHeroes Video Programs.
www.thankyouforyourservice.us was our News Site for a dozen years. It will now become a National Resource site. A long time friend is working now on our rebuild.
Below is some history on our Missions that began December 2005: Bob Calvert, the Founder of www.thankyouforYourService.us started our Missions to Support those who Serve(d) and Families with weekly audio programs on www.talkingwithheroes.com Dec 2005. His audio and video interviews were with active duty military, veterans, military support, families and more.
From 2006-2011 Bob made five trips to Iraq and three to Afghanistan going on Missions with our Troops. As of April 13, 2021 586, 818 have watched our videos on YouTube. Even with all Bobs Health Challenges this past years, We have still been averaging 2,000+ viewers per month for years now!!
Bobs last trip to Iraq and Afghanistan was late 2011. Since 2012, (in between surgeries) Bob produced over 100 videos with Military Support and Veterans Groups from across America setting aside politics and lock arms when it comes to Honoring, Thanking and Supporting those who serve and have served and their Families. Watch our Videos at: www.youtube.com/bobc9246
Founder, Bob Calvert is a member of a military family. His dad was a WWII Veteran who served in the Navy on an aircraft carrier. Bob’s brother and sister-in-law also served in the military. Bob’s daughter and son-in-law served in the Army. Bob’s son-in-law is an Iraq veteran, with two deployments to Iraq. Bob’s Brother and Sister N Law both Served in the Air Force and his Brother also Served in the Army with a Deployment to Afghanistan.
After 15 years of dedication to bringing the voices of active military members and veterans to the American public and despite 7 Surgeries and Stage4Cancer since 2012, and late Oct 2020 Bob was infected with Corona Virus. It was a rough three weeks and since then Bob has been dealing with what is being called around the world Long Haul. This is long term damage in different places in the body as a result of CoronaVirus. Bob is in Rehab and has medical help to get past this latest challenge.
Bob now at 74 has been planning what he calls a transition where our New Board of Directors will collaborate on continuing our mission for the next 15 years and more. Bob along with our New Board of Directors and Advisory Team agreed to expand our mission by including Military and Veterans and Families and also all First Responders and Essential Workers. We have combined our first site TalkingwithHeroes.com with our 501 C3 ThankyouforyourService with the Help of long time supporters Colin Clark and 23+ year Army Veteran William Wischnewsky and Ziliak Law Firm. More people interested in helping will be invited to be on our Board of Directors and on our Advisory Team!!
This Site will be America’s Resource Site with the initial first year goal of featuring more than 100 organizations across America, Companies and Individuals who are helping those who Serve(d) and more. Many of these Organizations are Founded by and Led by Veterans and Military Families!! Plus there will be a JOBS and CAREERS Section offering many good Careers and Resources for Small Businesses.
We believe it is important for Americans to be able to set aside politics and do everything we can to support our troops, veterans and their families. It is an honor to do this!! Our Mission goes on and will Continue for Decades to come with New Leadership!!!
As part of this expanded plan www.talkingwithheroes.com will also be rebuilt (unfortunately while Bob was battling Corona Virus a person hacked this site). The new Talkingwithheroes.com site will Feataure existing Podcasts, Audio Programs and Video Interview opportunities as part of the new ThankYouforYourService.us National Resource 501 C3.
For Individuals, Companies and Non Profits who would be interested in Helping Launch and to be Thanked on this new Media Network please email Bob Calvert and lets talk: email@example.com
