** William Wischnewsky President of TalkingwithHeroes.com 23 Year Army Veteran. Owner of   www.lightninggraphicsga.com and www.5jump.com in Columbus, GA filming for Air Borne Association and more for about 20 years at Ft Benning. He has a store in the PX on base. Bill has been my friend, Sponsor and Collaborator for over 13 years. He is also on the Board of Directors of our non profit www.thankyouforyourservice.us


** Robert C. Calvert CEO/Founder of www.talkingwithheroes.com. My Dad Served on an Aircraft Carrier in the Pacific in WWII, My amazing daughter Adrienne surprised me by enlisting in the Army in 2002  and and my Son n Law Keith Served for 10 years in the Army with two 2 deployments to Iraq. They are both are now civilians with their own growing family (I have four wonderful grandchildren)!

My Brother Ted Served in the Air Force and later years in the Army with a deployment to Afghanistan. Prior to his retirement in 2018 he was a Commander of over 200 Soldiers with a Medical Company at Ft Sam Houston.  My Sister-n-law Brenda Served in the Air Force.

I started audio programs December 2005 at 58 years young. and I am now 73. From 2006-2011 we made 5 trips to Iraq and 3 to Afghanistan, documenting on hundreds of videos the Progress and Positive Stories and how our Men and Women were helping Iraqis and Afghans that most Americans have seen little of.  

As of  today January 14, 2020  537,495  people have watched one or more video episodes on www.youtube.com/bobc9246  We are growing consistently at 2,000 per month!!!  Videos include from our trips with the troops and over 100 military support and veterans groups and companies, veterans, Military and Veterans Families and more 


A few years ago it became clear that we needed to find a new way to raise funds to continue our mission. Plus a new way to raise funds could benefit many military support and veterans groups and more. Less than a month ago we launched a new Shopping Site after a long time in being planned under the domain www.shopamerica.us and hosted on www.shopify.com Our next step is to Add an Affiliate Program that is an APP on Shopify. We plan on this helping many nationwide.


Mid June of 2019 our new President of TalkingwithHeroes 20+ year Army Veteran Bill Wischnewsky and I  Filmed in Alpharetts, GA at PharmOrigins headquarters. They are one of the companies featured in ShopAmerica.US. They have Amazing products for our health backed up by many Research Studies. After 7 surgeries and stage4cancer I am very much benefiting from their products. One of the products is called CONOLIDINE – {Type this word in google search} and you will read the amazing research and studies already taken on this product including comparing it to Morphine. For me it made it possible to be taken off an opiod that was causing respiratory problems and is amazing at reducing pain with increased energy. I am not making medical claims just how these Conolidine products have been and continue to help me. And we are getting similar testimonies from others purchasing them for themselves.

July 14th in Columbus, GA I had the Honor to film with (RET) Army SFC William Wischnewsky 20+ Years of Service to our Country and for almost 20 years since the Owner of Lightning Graphics in Columbus, GA Watch 24/7:   https://lnkd.in/eckYdMM


I invite you to watch the videos and visit www.ShopAmerica.US  See what products could help you and others you care about. Plus soon we will also have a unique fund raising program.

This is the latest on me and our mission

Three months ago a friend Laurie who has a Group page on Facebook for talk show programs, recommended me to a company in Florida. The owner James has a company helping people with LinkedIN pages to secure more connections. In the past three month thanks to James I have well over 800 new LinkedIN Connections with most of them being Veterans and most business owners. I am finding myself talking with many almost daily. I am hoping many collaborations will result. 


I do not feel comfortable sharing this but I grew up with honesty is the best policy. Due to my health we are working on lets call it a succession or transition plan. Where I would still do what I can with NEW Leaders who will carry the Missions forward. 


I am now 73 years old. Shortly after my  last trip to Iraq and Afghanistan late 2011 I started having health problems that led to 7 surgeries and more. Three on my foot have left me disabled. I get around on a Go Go Sport Scooter. Unfortunately the Cyrotherapy Prostate Cancer Surgery about 3 years ago did not work and the cancer spread into bones. I am now Stage4Cancer and a patient at Rocky Mountain Cancer here in Colorado Springs. And most recently this new year I have been in the Hospital with low oxygen. I have tests coming up to find out what is causing this and the waves of dizziness. 


In addition to the Health challenges I have a lot of Talking with Heroes Debts on me from past years helping others.  While living on a small fixed income of less than $900 per month it makes it challenging to finish building out and upgrading all our sites with new Missions. My goal now is to complete getting Shopamerica.us fully launched and to find preferably one or more Veterans and/or business owners to continue our 14 year history.

** We would like to upgrade our www.talkingwithheroes.com site from being filled with videos and audio programs I did to promoting many many existing pod casts, audio and video programs all about our Military, Veterans, First Responders and about PTSD, TBI, Suicide Prevention, Military and Veterans and First Responders Support Groups programs and more. There are literally hundreds of them across the Country. Our New TalkingwithHeroes.com Site would help as many of them who would let us by featuring them on our site where they could post updates and share their posts there on social media.

** There is more work to do on our non profit site www.thankyouforyourservice.us site. We plan on turning it into a National Grass Roots Media Network featuring Military Support and Veterans and First Responders Non Profits and Professional people across the country helping with PTSD, TBI, Suicide Prevention, Recreational Wellness Non Profits, Companies like USAA who have been and continue to Hire Veterans and much more. 


I would like to still be here and see that our Mission will continue and grow even bigger. We can not take anything with us:)  We have been talking about finding Veterans or others who would be interested in helping and managing the websites, keeping the missions alive. Together with Bill they would continue our mission and I would continue to do what I can from my apartment here in Colorado Springs and travel to do more video programs when my Doctors feel it is safe.  TalkingwithHeroes and ThankYouforYourService are Not for Profits.

** ShopAmerica.US has been built to be a For Profit, an ongoing fund raiser for our non profits and others and for me and others who would like to have an additional income helping others offering great products and services. As of today of this update I have 7 more Veteran Owned Companies to send our ShopAmerica.us reseller agreement to.


I was able to borrow more money to get ShopAmerica.US built and to keep up most months with the TalkingwithHeroes debts but I should have raised more. The ShopAmerica.US site is built and orders have been made but we do not have the affiliate program added yet. We know which one we will use. It is an APP in Shopify.


For ShopAmerica.US my transition plan is to invite an an investment and that person/company or another would take over operations. This could be two people/companies — Investor and Operations. I hope to see all three sites thriving and performing their missions.

If you would like to lead the way with Bill and me while I am able to with TalkingwithHeroes.com and ThankYouforYourService.us please let me know. If you would like to be on our Leadership Team, Our Founders Team with  ShopAmerica.US LLC and could make an investment without in any way hurting yourself please email me. Lets talk!!   We have a site here that will help many many non profits across the America in similar ways that Amazon SMILE is meant to help Non Profits. And this site will help Veterans, First Responders, Military and Families and many others as a unique way to raise funds also. And most important products in ShopAmerica.US now and more to come will help many!!!


Now that I have shared all this I want you to know that I will continue doing whatever I can to continue our mission and continue to help those who Serve(d) and those who help them. Should you have ideas, interested in collaborating, please email me and we will set up a time to talk  bob@talkingwithheroes.com
