New Venture, A New Radio Show for Veterans and their Families

I will host my first radio program called Vet Net beginning on November 11 at Huntley Community Radio broadcasting on 101.5 FM as WHRU-LP. (

Below you will find a brief description of the show:

Every year in November we honor and remember all veterans who have served in all wars. This program will acknowledge and honor these brave Americans every day.  The title of the show is Vet Net, short for Veterans Network.  The title came from Jeanine's sister Sharon Hill Sprenger, an Air Force and National Guard veteran.  On this new show we will feature women and men who will share their stories of sacrifice while serving their country.  Take a few minutes out of your busy day and meet a local veteran through their stories of service.  In addition informational programs for veterans in the region will be announced about services available for the local veteran community. 

In honor of Veterans Day the first show will air on November 11 at 5:00 p.m.   My guest Alan Belcher will share his stories of service in the US Army during the Vietnam War and life after his return home from war.  He is a counselor and founder of Transitional Living Services located in Hebron, IL.  TLS provides housing and services for homeless and disabled veterans and their families in McHenry County.
