Our Mission since December 2005 has been producing video programs with our Troops, including all 2006-2011 Raw Footage Videos on our trips to Iraq (5 trips) and Afghanistan (3 trips) with our Troops and Local People plus with Veterans, Gold Star Families, Military and Veterans Support Groups, and Companies from across America.
There are close to 500 videos of unedited footage and as of April 2022 — 601,768 watched have watched videos of unedited footage at as of April 28, 2022: http://www.youtube.com/bobc9246
Most of the videos are unedited 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 FOB’s they were worshiping. I like to call this “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.!
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 17+ years was to help Military Service members, Veterans, First Responders, their Families, Supporters and more with our Talking with Heroes Talk Shows!! And we added later www.thankyouforyourservice.us

From 2006-2011 I (Bob Calvert) made five trips to Iraq and three to Afghanistan going on Missions with our Troops. Even with all My Health Challenges since these past years, we have still been averaging 2,000+ viewers per month!! Due to my continued many Health challenges it has become very important to me to find an individual(s), Non Profit or For Profits to continue our Mission. I believe with new Leadership and a relaunch with updated websites we will reach Millions of people watching in the year ahead.
My last trip to Iraq and Afghanistan was in late 2011. Since 2012, (in between surgeries) we produced over 100 videos with Military Support and Veterans Groups from across America setting aside politics and locking arms when it comes to Honoring, Thanking, and Supporting those who serve and have served and their families. Watch 24/7 www.youtube.com/bobc9246
I am a member of a military family. Our dad Richard Gene Calvert was a WWII Veteran who served in the Navy on an aircraft carrier. My brother and sister-in-law also served in the military. My daughter Adrienne and son-in-law Keith served in the Army. My son-in-law is an Iraq veteran, with two deployments to Iraq. My Brother Ted and Sister n Law Brenda, both Served in the Air Force and my Brother Ted also Served in the Army with a Deployment to Afghanistan. I am Proud to have been a part of a Military Family.
It has been a Honor to after 15 years of dedication to have brought the voices of active military members and veterans to the American public. Despite 7 Surgeries and Stage4Cancer since 2012, and late Oct 2020 battled Corona Virus three weeks and since then I have been dealing with what is being called around the world Long Haul. This is long-term damage in different places in the body as a result of CoronaVirus. It is now challenging to get around but I am still here!!!
I am now 75 and I believe I am close to us having a new leadership team who will collaborate on continuing our mission for the next 15 years and more. With more health challenges it became more important to me to find that person)s), organization(s) or company who have the skills to completely take over TalkingwithHeroes.com and ThankYouforYourService still registered as a 501 C3 and everything that comes with it — websites, all social media and more. For latest updates as of April 28, 2022 email me firstname.lastname@example.org and lets set up a time to talk.
Our rebuilt TalkingwithHeroes.com LLC Website will now operate under the umbrella of our 501 C3 – www.thankyouforyourservice.us LLC will podcasts, talk shows, videos feature existing Podcasts, Audio, and Video Programs, videos filmed at military and veteran support groups events, produced by others. In essence TalkingwithHeroes will become a Network as opposed to one person:)
Existing podcasts, audio and video programs that would be similar to our missions — military and veteran support, first responders and more. For more info please email me email@example.com
With our Re Launch we will continue helping Non-Profit Support Group Organizations with many of these organizations Founded by and Led by Veterans and Military Families, Suicide Prevention, PTSD, TBI. Retreats, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, Jobs and Careers, Gold Star Families, Fishing, Camping, Retreats, and Much More.
I believe it is important for Americans to be able to set aside politics and do everything possible to support our troops, veterans, and their families. It is an honor to do this!! Our Mission goes on and will Continue for Decades to come with New Leadership!!!
For anybody or any non profits or companies who would be interested in talking with me please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
