Topic: National Anthem
Clarksville, TN – The national anthem was missing. Inside a small, dilapidated building on the Austin Peay State University (APSU) campus, three students frantically searched through vinyl albums and beneath heavy reel-to-reel tapes for the record.
It was the early 1980s, and the clock inside the University’s new radio station, WAPX-FM, was about to hit midnight.

Nashville, TN – The leadership of 101st Airborne Division Artillery Brigade along with the 101st Airborne Division Band, took part in the Nashville Predators’ Military Salute Week at Bridgestone Arena.
During the Predators’ March 6th game against the Dallas Stars, the Big 5 Band played during the first and second intermission. Positioned just above the Zamboni tunnel, they performed classic rock covers for the more than 17,000 fans who filled the arena.
“Before a big performance like this I always get very excited. It’s fantastic that this large of an audience will be hearing Army music tonight,” said Pfc. Shawn McGovern, an Army musician with the 101st Airborne Division Band.
Clarksville, TN – We’re a little over a week from the NFL’s premier event, the Super Bowl. It’s been a tumultuous year for the sports league that has its own day of the week.
The controversy started with former San Francisco Giant quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem. Other players started doing the same thing. They each gave their reasons for the protest, but the insult was not taken lightly by fans.
Clarksville, TN – I find that the older I get, the more I appreciate where I am in life.
Funny how that works.
With all the information that’s available to us, at times we just don’t know what to believe. I remember growing up and we just didn’t worry all that much about the world around us. Now, it consumes us.

Nashville, TN – Vanderbilt University opened their stadium, November 11th, 2017 to give active duty soldiers and their families the opportunity to experience college football as part of the school’s Veterans Day Salute to Service.
Among them were nearly 50 soldiers from 101st Airborne Division Artillery who were invited to carry out and unfurl a replica of the U.S. Flag during the pre-game ceremony honoring the nation. The large replica flag was the shape of the continental United States of America.
The Commodore Marching Band fanned out across the field after the National Anthem, and the soldiers lined up at the end of the stadium to form a tunnel and cheer the Vanderbilt football players as they ran onto the field.
Clarksville, TN – I’ve been around the military my entire life. As a boy, I spent my youth in Europe as my military family traveled the world. I’ve had a deep rooted respect for the soldier and his family my entire life.
While I was never able to serve, my love and respect for those who have sacrificed so much for me is passionate.
I live in a military community, the home to the 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles at Fort Campbell Kentucky. I’m surrounded by the greatest group of soldiers in the world. I can’t turn my head and not meet a soldier or a member of his or her family.
Nashville, TN – Well it’s over. The true “Cinderella” of the National Hockey League, our Nashville Predators, have bowed out. Losing last night 2-0, the Penguins win the series and hoist Lord Stanley’s cup for the second year in a row.
I was there, and I didn’t like it one bit.
Honestly, I’m so exhausted I can barely hold my head up. This playoff series, while exciting as hell, has taken me physically, mentally and financially. I was ready for this to be over a couple of weeks ago.
I’m going to try and put all of this in perspective as best I can, without mentioning the officiating. I’ll leave that for another column.
Clarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators hockey team is on the verge of winning the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs and Predator’s fans have TOTALLY lost it!
In a REALLY exciting way!
As a season ticket holder, I’ve endured the good and the bad from this team. As I’ve previously posted, this team looks unbeatable at times, and others, they look like they’re just treading water. During this round of playoff hockey, they look invincible.
