Basecamp – Air Date 1/18/17
The UWVC is proud to present BASE CAMP, our new radio show on veterans issues! Our first episode, hosted by Ralph Romeo, aired on WPAT AM930 on Wednesday, January 18, 2017.
“We invite subject matter experts who have views on the veterans community in NYC. Remember this is non partisan forum- we are not talking about politics instead we are discussing issues that relate to their families and how we can improve their situation.”
For our inaugural show, UWVC President Dan McSweeney served as moderator, guiding a wide-ranging discussion amongst our special guests:
- Joe Bello
- Tony Davis
Relationship Manager (NY/NJ)
U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
- Ryan Hegg
Head of Production/Advocacy
United War Veterans Council (UWVC)
- Alexis Wichowski
Press Secretary & Senior Advisor for Communications
NYC Department of Veterans Services
We also welcomed Jon Bremner of the musical “Deployed” via phone, who spoke about this unique piece of theater and veterans in the arts in general.
Stay tuned for more information on future shows; we invite you to listen in and join the conversation!
