Communications Campaign Championed by NewsBlaze and Talking With Heroes

By SOP newswire

While the focus is on pessimistic reports out of Iraq, NewBlaze never waivers in its mission to recount the positive narratives of American troops on their accomplishments in thousands of ongoing projects, by broadcasting their stories and by highlighting the deeds of others supporting the military.

Recently returned from a third trip to Iraq, Bob Calvert, host of the Talking with Heroes Talk Show, and Jim Martin, CEO of Altitude Sports and Entertainment Cable Network based in Denver, Colo., chronicled progress reports from service personnel from posts in Eastern and Western Baghdad. Their interviews detailed successes at a children's hospital, reconstruction at Baghdad International Airport, new buildings under construction, on convoys and more.

Along with others, Calvert and Martin sat down with:

  • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
  • North Dakota National Guard, with 2ID 2BCT Army units from Fort Carson
  • Marines
  • Air Force
  • Navy
  • Iraqis

    The public can view all 11 videos assembled from nearly 20 hours of interviews, filmed by Martin in on-site visits to different locations in Iraq, at ''.

    The public can view airings on Talking with Heroes at 2:00 p.m. EST Sunday nights on the Internet radio network program through January 2008.

    After their return from Iraq, NewsBlaze representatives met with Calvert at the Altitude studios in Denver, Colo., to arrange additional support from NewsBlaze, which provides server storage space and bandwidth for Talking with Heroes audio recordings, as well as financial support. The audio programs can now be heard 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at ''.

    Said NewsBlaze Editor Alan Gray, "NewsBlaze welcomes Calvert and Martin home from Iraq. We thank them for their efforts to bring back so many positive stories - the ones Americans and media have been looking for. The labors of Bob Calvert and Talking With Heroes direct attention to the accomplishments of our children, our fathers and mothers, our brothers and sisters, and our other family members, in striving to better the quality of life of others.

    "NewsBlaze is proud to support their mission to bring the stories back for everyone to see and hear."
