Even though I didn't serve in the military, as the son of two US Navy officers (both physicians in the Medical Corps), Veterans Day means a lot to me. We'll spend most of today's show talking with and about veterans, but we'll certainly mix in some other fun and interesting topics as well.
First, I don't mind offering a little free advertising for Ernie's Mountain Bakery & Cafe in Conifer. Ernie's is owned by Lydia McCullough, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. Give Ernie's a try if you're in the neighborhood!
Colin Cahoon served in the US Army as a helicopter pilot. He's now a successful author and his newest book, Mended Wings, is a wonderful compilation of stories of members of our military who received Purple Hearts for being wounded in combat.
After Bruce Davey graduated from the United States Naval Academy he became a Naval aviator, including flying for the Blue Angels. We'll spend a full hour with Bruce talking about everything from flying in tight formation to the role of "Fat Albert" to his view on Critical Race Theory in the Service Academies. I've put some great Blue Angels video at the end of this note.

Catapulting a space ship into orbit
If they can commercialize this, the decreased cost of launch would be tremendous as would be the decreased weight of the launch vehicle.
