Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak’s opening state at today’s Training Camp Press Conference

I’ll just start by welcoming all of you here to opening day. This is our opening day for camp — 2012 Titans camp. Obviously you won’t get a chance to watch a practice for a couple days, but we’re getting started today. We’re excited.

This is probably my 30th NFL camp as a player and a coach. I’ve probably never said this—I don’t think I have said this publicly or out loud, and hopefully you won’t repeat it—but this is my favorite day of football. This is opening day, really those first 10 days of camp. «Read the rest of this article»

Vietnam veteran still serving on active duty at Fort Campbell with the 101st Airborne Division, 1st Brigade Combat Team

BastogneFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell, KY – At just over 6 feet tall, a soldier from a long line of war veterans walks with a unique swagger. He has the voice of a natural leader that only comes with time. His stern facial expression might throw some people off from his truly motivating and positive attitude, but it’s his teddy bear attraction that might draw a person in.

He’s been honorably in and out of the military for the past four decades, has served in three wars and is currently assigned to the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).

Staff Sgt. Robert W. Middleswarth, 61, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), is scheduled to retire in December. Middleswarth, a Watsontown, PA, native, is one of only two active duty Vietnam veterans still serving on Fort Campbell, KY. (Photo by Spc. Kadina Baldwin)

Former Green Beret Joe Shakeenab to read poetry at APSU on August 30th

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – In 1993, a young Green Beret named Joe Shakeenab sought shelter from the hot sun in the African nation of Somalia. Sitting in his combat fatigues under the shade of a tent, he pulled out a notebook and a pencil and began scribbling a few lines of verse.

“When you’re gone on deployments, that’s the way you go on with yourself, just to maintain your own mind,” he said. “I wrote about what I’d seen and what I thought. I told the experiences through poetry.”
