About Us

I am Bob Calvert Founder of TalkingwithHeroes.com and Non-Profit www.thankyouforyourservice.us                               

Our Mission since December 2005 has been producing video programs with our Troops and more, including all our 2006-2011 Raw Footage Videos on our trips to Iraq (5 trips) and Afghanistan (3 trips) with our Troops and Local People. And with Veterans, Gold Star Families, Military and Veterans Support Groups, and Companies and more from across America.

As of December 26, 2023, there are over 500 videos of unedited footage with 615, 698 who have watched videos of unedited footage. See all Videos:) http://www.youtube.com/bobc9246

Most of the videos are raw footage from my 5 trips to Iraq and 3 to Afghanistan 2006-late 2011.

It is my and the opinion of many others that these videos are very important for millions of Americans to watch, to see how our Amazing Men and Women were Helping Iraqis and Afghanistan, how they were living and in some Forward Operating Bases, they were worshiping.

I like to call these Videos “And Now for the Rest of the Story”, said so many times by Paul Harvey. There are also many Videos with the most incredible Americans who do what they can to support those who Serve and have Served with their Military and/or Veterans Support Groups and Companies!

Do you agree with me that it is important to continue Helping Active-Duty Military, Veterans, First Responders, Families, Companies Hiring Veterans, and Military Spouses, Professionals and Organizations and Companies helping with PTSD, TBI, Veterans who are Homeless, Saving Lives from Suicide, First Responders, Fire Fighters, Police, EMT’s, Doctors and Nurses, Essential Workers!

Our Mission for 18+ years has been to help Military Service members, Veterans, First Responders, their Families, Supporters and more with our Talking with Heroes Talk Shows!!

Since 2012 I have had many health challenges (I am now 77 as of Sept 2, 2023)) and have had 7 surgeries, stage4cancer for the past 3 1/2 years, Covid late 2019 and into 2020, Covid Long Haul since included memory loss and breathing challenges. The most challenges in 2023 and going into 2024 have been neck, spine and knee problems. Study results (Xray and MRI) show Degenerative Disc Disease with C3, 4, 5, and 6 and more. I spent six months in 2023 in Rehab with the best Physical Therapist (also a Military Spouse of a Hero Active Duty Soldier) I ever was blessed with but then in early October 2023 I ended up in the hospital with bad Rib Damage after being a passenger in a car.  Since then debilitation is a good word. I may have to have another major surgery. Now as of December 26, 2023, as we head into 2024, I am amazed at my age with the changes:) In order to see that this mission will continue and also to be bigger than ever, It is essential that I find a way to either raise funds to complete the rebuild of TalkingwithHeroes or find somebody or a Corporation who would feel Led to,  to take it over but not leave me here living on a small, fixed income with debts.  Just being honest. 

I am now living near to my daughter (Army Veteran) and son n law (Army Veteran with two long Iraq Combat Deployments) and my 4 amazing Grand Children:)

I have been planning what I call our Transition to a new team of Veterans and more who will be on the new Leadership Team.

The new Leadership Team will collectively take Talking with Heroes and Thank You for Your Service moving forward and growing for decades to come with our new Expanded Mission.

Once this team is fully operational, I will work together with them as a TEAM as long as I can.

I am excited and honored to introduce to everybody Chris Nobles, A Marine Iraq Veteran who helps Veterans, works with amazing bands and with his wife Heather.

Talking with Heroes GOD willing, will relaunch as America’s newest National Media Network. Veterans, Military, First Responders Talk Show Programs (Suicide Prevention, PTSD, TBI, Support groups across the Country Will register and List their Podcasts and Videos and talk shows and more on Talking with Heroes.

This will Help them get more visibility and Each organization and company will find out about each other. Collaborations will increase! This will give all these amazing programs and videos a new way to be seen across America.
