It is May 7, 2020 and our Country is in the middle of an invisible attack. In my 73 years I have never seen anything like this before.  And yet we have Doctors and Nurses and other Health Professions, National Guard, Reservists, Active Duty Military, Law Enforcement, Fire Fighters, EMT all risking their lives to help their fellow Americans. It is an inspiration to see how Americans join together and help each other. I thank each of them and ALL Americans who are helping each other in this incredible time on Earth and in our Country! May  GOD Bless each of us and our Great Country the United States of America!!!

At the end of this About US part there will be more about our 14+ history. Due to our Mission

I am Bob Calvert Founder of www.talkingwithheroes.com and our new sites www.thankyouforyourservice.us and www.shopamerica.us

I spent the past 14+ years doing what I could helping and Supporting those Americans and their Families who are or have Served our Country. From 2006-2011 I made five trips to Iraq and three to Afghanistan going on missions with our troops with a videographer. We documented via interviews and raw footage about their service and how they were helping the local people. We spent more time outside the wire than inside.

We have 500 videos on www.youtube.com/bobc9246 and we average 2,000 videos being watched every month 9 years since my last trip over with our Troops. As of today May 9, 2020 547,589 have watched videos. We have close to 5,000 friends on one of our Facebook pages and over 8,000 on LinkedIN plus thousands more on Twitter, Alignable, Pinterest.

Since my last trip late 2011 to Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan — I got older:) I am now 73 and have had 7 surgeries leaving me some disabled plus stage4cancer for the past 2 years and now a respiratory problem with a Heart Catherization outpatient surgery coming up.

The desire and commitment inside of me to continue supporting and helping those who Serve(d) our Country and Families is as strong as ever.

Our Mission has now become a transition to find ways to have our missions continue for decades to come. The result is a Non Profit Mission with a relaunched www.thankyouforYourService.US

And a For Profit site to raise funds for our missions and for the millions of Military and Veterans and First Responder Support Groups, Non Profits, For Profits and Veterans, Military and First Responders Families to also have a new way to raise funds. www.shopamerica.us

1. We have rebuilt what used to be our News Site to now be a National Resource Site for Military, Veterans, First Responders, Support Groups, Companies who Hire and Support those who Served, professionals helping with PTSD, TBI, Suicide Prevention, Recreational Wellness and more. Check out all the Categories on the GRID on the Home Page.

As of today May 7, 2020 there are some more steps that need to happen technically so we can fully launch this across the Country.  Until we have this solved the registration process happens manually.     I am seeking to find an individual and/or company or non profit with Web and Technical Skills who would take the time to complete this site so that our Registration Form is fully automated. I do not have a way that I know of to borrow again. We offer high visibility in this site permanently. I am also looking who could be our next Board of Directors!

2. Our For Profit Company www.shopamerica.us is now taking orders. People are benefiting now from Pharm Origins Conolidine 1 for pain relief without opiod side effects. We have other products from Pharm Origins and also from American Company Traverse Bay Farms and Asheville Soap and more. Veteran owned companies have already contacted me about us reselling their products and some are services.

We found a unique affiliate fund raising program as an APP on Shopify and this will complete the site for Shopping a unique Fund Raiser with NO Cost to have a ShopAmerica.US site and no Sales or Volume requirements to earn commissions.

We may have a new Partner who will take over the Operation of the website and all the technical aspects of this site. If not then I will be again looking for a tech type person or company with the skills and desire to be a part of this fund raising mission as a partner.

Since I am grounded like millions of Americans,  I am on the computer and on the phone talking with more great Americans and many Veterans. At some point we will HIRE helpers on the computer possibly even working out of their Homes. With both non profit and for profit my goal is to see this fully launched and a team of amazing Americans  growing them decades ahead.

Since late October 2019 thanks to a friend in Florida with a Facebook Group for Talk Show Hosts introducing me to her friend James who has a company helping others with their LinkedIN pages I average 40-50 New LinkedIN connections every day. I went from close to 6,000 to now 8.738 and most are Veterans:) and Veteran Owned Companies and many also help other Veterans.

I have learned about many Military Support Groups that I had never heard of before. That makes what we are doing with www.thankyouforyourservice.us very important as a National Resource Site.

Many ask me how they can help. How can we Collaborate.  For those non profits, for profits and individuals who are Supporting in some way those who Serve(d) and Families Please Register your site(s) in ThankYouforYourService.us.

Help in sharing the sites would be great. Donations will help in any amounts. Corporations, Foundations and more can become Sponsors.  Since www.thankyouforyourservice.us is a Non Profit donations are tax deductible.

Thank You for taking the time to read this. For those of you who I have interviewed over the years, met at Veterans Events, met via LinkedIN, Facebook, Twitter, Alighnable it has been an Honor to meet more great Americans.



Below is some of our 14+ years history 

I started audio programs December 2005 at 58 years young. 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  May 7, 2020  547,584  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 missions. And also for a new way for non profits and individuals and companies to raise funds too. A few months ago we launched www.shopamerica.us. Our next step is to add the affiliate program from an APP on Shopify. We believe this will help many across the country.

Mid June of 2019 President of TalkingwithHeroes 20+ year Army Veteran Bill Wischnewsky and I  Filmed in Alpharetta, GA at Pharm Origins headquarters. They are one of the companies featured in ShopAmerica.US. They have Amazing products for our health backed  by many Research Studies. After 7 surgeries and stage4cancer I am very much benefiting from their products. One of the products is called CONOLIDINE 1 – {Type Conolidine in google search}. You will read 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 sharing how these Conolidine products have been and continue to help me. We are getting similar testimonies from others purchasing them for themselves. 

Watch 24/7 PharmOrigins CEO Clint Winters talk about Conolidine 1 –soothes pain receptors and more! https://youtu.be/ZrJP6J-GPw4

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.

Due to my health we are working on a transition plan. I would still do what I can as long as I can with NEW Leaders who will carry the Missions forward. 

I am still here and thanking GOD every day for a New Day and that I get to do more in forwarding our Missions. 

If you would like to be on our Leadership Team with  ShopAmerica.US LLC  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 there are more products and services to come!! 

I will continue doing whatever I can to continue our mission and continue to help those who Serve(d) and those who help them. For more please email me and we will set up a time to talk  bob@talkingwithheroes.com
