"Of engagement and physical health and wellness at the wounded warrior project as Tracy tells me, they have a number of amazing programs at the project, including their soldier ride events that take place across the country with the most recent happening this past week in our nation's capital is a four day adaptive cycling event that encourages veterans to connect with each other in their community. And how exactly do they go about doing that? I mean, adaptive cycling, I imagined bicycles. The tricycles the other different types of things that they have out there. Exactly. So we bring warriors from across the country. Together, we provide a bike, and that could be everything from a hand cycle to a recumbent to a hybrid to road, bike, whatever. Part of your life. You're at the bike will provide you for those days, we'll ride for a couple of days, and we ride as a group we keep that group together. And that's the biggest part of it. How big of a group or are we talking here here in DC? We had thirty warriors in New York City when we're up there we have fifty wires. So it really depends on the on the event itself when we do one in Colorado Springs, that's focused on mountain biking skills. We have twenty wires, and it takes place, obviously in several places as he just listed off a few of them how many places are doing a soldier. Thirty four soldier rides a year this year and this past fiscal year. And so it really depends on parts of the country that we're in we have team three teams that travel a ton. Of course, the one in DC just concluded, but for people that are interested in soldier ride for the future. Maybe next year if they're in DC, or if they're in one of the other places that it's happening this year. How do they go about becoming part of this program? So the first thing is to be actually a registered alumni with wounded warrior project, and that can occur online wounded warrior project dot org. And then the second thing is to connect with the individuals who serve your community and say, hey, I'd like to participate in soldier ride when it comes to programs like this. What do you think they can do for the veteran community specifically for our wounded warriors that are out there? I think the biggest thing is confidence and creating connections, and that would be connections with the people that are on the ride or win the program with you and the connection with the community. And when it comes to the physical aspect as we talked about in the survey. Certainly in the first segment. There's also a social aspect. I mean, this isn't just like going out and doing a grueling bike ride. Right. There's a lot more now as I've heard from many veterans the biggest thing, they miss is that sense of camaraderie, and so with any programming that wounded warrior project does that's event base. That's the first aspect. It's introducing yourself to others doing an icebreaker and making sure that you're comfortable with people that are in the room is that one of the things that you think sets wounded warrior project and the programs that they have like soldier ride apart from some of the other VSO's who were also doing great work within the space. I think it is. I think the other thing is the fact that we are holistic in nature. Meaning we will go everywhere from financial wellness to mental health to physical activity wherever you are presenting and need helpless wounded warrior project can help you. There are a lot of challenges that are wounded warriors face their physical challenges their mental challenges. Have you seen evidence that things like soldier ride in the other programs that you guys offer making a difference when it comes to those aspects of life? Definitely we are. So data Centric, all of we do surveys all the time and those surveys drive our decisions on where we go with programming, and we use skills that have been tested and researched, and we can say with absolute confidence that what we're doing is changing lives when you think back to your time running these programs can is there any story that sticks out to you. As far as someone who was like, a great success story. Kind of emblematic of what you're hoping the program can do for someone. Definitely we have. That was at soldier IDC last week whose name is William William is going blind and has a service dog and he has participated in events with us such as project odyssey are talk program, which is a Colin. He's done engagement type of events which are connection base. And he came out in a tandem bike with us for soldier IDC. And just seeing how he has transitioned over the past few years that he's been involved with the program is amazing. And he would be the first to tell you that window voyeur project has saved his life. When you talk about engagement, obviously, there's engagement with the wounded warriors themselves within the veteran community. How important do you think engagement is with the civilian population? Because I think for most of us who served when we see one of our wounded warriors and amputee or something to that effect. We understand the civilians. They tend not to understand quite so well or not know how to treat those people. There seems to be a stigma also some worrying on behalf of the wounded warriors hell important, you think those engagement projects are in kind of building that bridge. I think it's absolutely essential. I think that our communities are where our families reside. And thus we need to interact with individuals within those communities, and so anything that we can do we being winded warrior project. We being veterans in general to share stories and de-stigmatising, but it is to be in the military is important for both ways. Absolutely as I couldn't agree with you more. And of course, wounded warrior project, specifically focuses on the wounded warriors is right there in the name. I mean, everybody knows that at this point. I think what do you think it is that's made wounded warrior project and your team over there. So successful with these types of programs. Okay. So I think it's it's important from two perspectives. And I think we succeed because a two perspectives. One is the focus on the mission to honor and power. That's at the forefront of everything we do the other is the adherence to values. The teammates the employee's wounded warrior project. Have our values are service integrity. Loyalty innovation and fun with every event every expenditure of dollar. We take it from that perspective, and that creates an energy that's unsurpassed in any other organization. I've been in part of when it comes to engagement from your perspective. And what I mean by that is getting in touch with those wounded warriors who could most benefit from these programs who maybe isolated for various reasons that we've already talked about. What do you think we're doing right? And what do you think we could be doing better in making sure that we reach all of them? And let them know that things like soldier rider out there for them. What I think at least my organization is doing well is that we are in the hospitals. So we're in lunch till medical center about boa well to read Brooke Army Medical Center and hacking to individuals about what the organization does. I also think it's important collectively to be in the communities where the military is at individuals start transitioning right to let them know there's the safety net in place, and they're not alone. And that could be transitioning off of active duty could be transitioning out of a deployment, we need as a group collectively as veterans service organizations as nonprofits as whatever entities are out there to let people know that we're here to help. Is it also important to not give up on them? What I mean is if your lawn stool or wherever you are where their first coming out and soon being seen medically that may not be the right time for them to start thinking about the wounded warrior project because don't give up if someone doesn't immediately become part of. The the organization, right. Exactly. We are here, and we hope to be here forever to help. There's not a one, touch and we're done those. Here's our card. Here's our number. We're gonna reach out occasionally, let us know when you need us. It can be hard to breakdown something as big as the wounded warrior project to something more simple. But in your opinion, why is it important that those veterans have an organization like the wounded warrior project kind of help facilitate these things I really think it goes back to the connection that we spoke of earlier the trust. That warriors veterans have in the organization due to a connection with the organization allows us to serve more. And when it comes to specifically your aspect of it when you're talking about engagement, physical and health and wellbeing. How do those wounded warriors who are interested? Find out more about all the programs that you offer you mentioned project odyssey, of course, soldier ride. There's a lot going on. How do they find out more about that? And start taking Bart. Well, we have an online presence, of course on Facebook Instagram wounded warrior project org. We also have a call center that's open throughout the day that if somebody wants to call in and ask about programming is open to answer any questions. They may have if there is someone out there thinking yes soldier, right? I don't know if that's for me. They're kind of on the fence about it. What would you say about taking part in one of those thirty four events that you guys have going on this year almost three a month. And if you look at the events that are engagement based we have thirteen day across the country. So I would say it's important to take that for step. Sometimes we become hesitant because we're comfortable in the zone that we've been operating in. But sometimes all you need to do is take that first step and you'll receive so much feedback in so much energy that you'll be willing to take the second third and fourth step..

"As President Trump readies for his state of the union address tomorrow, there's some new questions about what he actually does all day of questions raised by a leaked copy of his schedule which shows a lot of blank spots for so-called executive time. We'll have more on that tonight. But we begin keeping them honest with the state of Virginia and the democratic governor Ralph Northam who has this hour is standing firm and not stepping down. CNN's Ryan nobles reporting that a source inside the cabinet for the Commonwealth Virginia meeting in a cabinet meeting. He held today said the governor believes that resigning now would brand him as a racist for life to say the last few days have been difficult for the governor's and understatement. It's also been difficult for anyone trying to follow his explanations, which keep changing and still don't quite add up at first on Friday, governor north and said, he was one of the people in this medical school yearbook photo, but didn't remember if he was the guy in black face at the party or the clansman either one is obviously racist and highly inappropriate. This was not some photo taken of a high. School student. This was a yearbook from nineteen Eighty-four when north and was twenty five years old and graduating from medical school, then on Saturday, and one of the stranger press conferences, we've seen in a long time. And we've seen a lot of strange press conferences, the governor is suddenly said he wasn't either one of the men in that photo. But he went on to say he did wear black phase once that same year, in fact when he dressed as Michael Jackson at dance contest in San Antonio, Texas except in his confession. He wasn't really confessing to wearing black vase because he only used and I'm quoting here a little bit of shoe polish to put on my cheeks. He went on to explain that. He only used a little because somehow he knew that it's hard to get black shoe polish off your face. Once you have put it on your face. You know, let me just play you the part of the news conference when he was asked about wearing black face. Be pertinent fate. I wasn't I I mean, I I'll tell you exactly what I did. Alan I dressed up in a. What's his name? Michael Jackson, skewed me. That's why I have pay him with me. I had the shoes I had a globe. And I used this a little bit of shoe polish to put under my all, my cheeks, and the reason I used a very little bit is because I don't know if anybody's ever tried that, but you cannot get shoe polish off. Asking room full of people if they've ever tried that so putting shoe polish on your face to impersonate. An African American entertainer is not in the governor's opinion. I suppose wearing black face because he only put it on his cheeks so says the man who until now was known mainly as they highly regarded, former Lieutenant governor, Dr Brooke Army Medical Center, pediatric neurologist, the keeping them honest. He is quickly developing reputation as the guy who just can't get his story straight. Because remember when this photo surfaced Friday night governor northbound's first move was to put out a statement apologizing for appearing in that photo then in about an hour after that released this video on Twitter. That photo and the racist and offensive attitude represents does not reflect that person. I am today or the way that I have conducted myself as soldier a doctor and a public servant. I'm deeply sorry. I cannot change the decision. I made nor can I undo the harm my behavior calls then and today, but I accept responsibility for my past actions. And I'm ready to do the hard work of regaining your trust. So that was Friday night. Now the words they're the decisions I made and my behavior which exactly what you would expect someone to say when apologizing for something they've done. They only stand out in retrospect because governor north of the very next day tried to say he hadn't done it that he never made as he put it the decisions I made. When I was confronted with the images yesterday. I was appalled that they appeared on my page. But I believe then. And now that I am not either of the people in that photo..

"Radio all across America. Eight six six ninety redeye. He's Harley and I'm Gary McNamara. Welcome and good morning. I would urge him to open up the government for a short period of time like three weeks before he pulls the plug say if we can get a deal if we can't at the end of three weeks all bets are off say if you can do it by himself through the emergency powers. But nobody asks a question now, he said already that that Trump had said no to that. The next thing. You wanted to do was emergency Powers Act in our next question was well, then why don't you do with? Then if you don't believe they remember he came out of the meeting on Friday saying there is no hope the president believes an I believe the Democrats will not budge at all on this. And so then he came out Sunday and said, we Lindsey Graham saying that should give them three weeks. Well, we don't even know if the president even if you went to the Democrats and said, okay, let's open the government for three more weeks a cooling down period. And we'll talk about it again with the Democrats agree to that. Yeah. That's a great point. I don't know. If they're gonna agree to anything short term here. Do they want to get back? Do they want to give that the president more? Debate power. If you will there hasn't really been a debate. But do they want to give the president more time on the stage over the next three weeks to make his point a nothing is going to change? The Democrats aren't giving up anything in three weeks. So. Either keep the government shutdown or you move onto an executive action and declare an emergency. An open the government. The go fund me campaign to subsidize what he called the Trump all were refund all money to donors said the director of Bobby with horn of the North American communications for go fund me donors who received their money on April eleventh, unless they choose to donate their contribution to the campaign. Craters new venture go fund me said in an Email to the campaign participants Brian coverage. The triple amputee reports veteran raised more than twenty million on the crowd funding platform to build a wall along the US Mexico border sort of the campaign he said he would only collect funds in the campaign hit. It's one billion dollar goal about one fifth of what the President Trump has demanded from congress to build. However that it did not happen. That means all donors will receive a refund. The refund announcement came a day after buzz feed reported that kovic pocketed money in a previous go fund me campaign intended to help wounded soldiers kovic race sixteen thousand for a veteran mentorship program. But BuzzFeed news reports that after collecting the funds he didn't use the money as promised, none of the partners. He claimed to work with including Walter Reed. Brooke Army Medical Center. Or the Landstuhl regional medical center in Germany of any records of that cold fridge worked with their patients donated money, according to the representatives at the center at BuzzFeed that they spoke to in an update to donors on Friday. Kovic did not say missing the goal was the main reason for the refund instead he pointed to government inefficiencies and said the fact that the government won't be able to accept our donations. Anytime soon is the reason. Kovic gave donors option of giving their go funding contribution to himself in a team. He assembled to privately construct the border wall. The group called we will build the wall Inc. According to an Email from go me to go fund me to contributors there you go. Yeah. It was not going to happen. There wasn't going to be a billion dollars raised. If you looked at the what was that over two billion total raised by both candidates. Yeah, we started. And and and as I stated it was the point we started from day one, which we were criticized for my many of our listeners. You guys don't want to try anything. No. We don't want to try things that don't work. There's no point when you know, you're still going to need congress in order to get it done. Even if you raise twenty five billion, we're not gonna play the magic wand game. But as against we did caller last hour was, you know, the waste us, and this kind of money they've they've done all that they've explained all of that. The Democrats don't care. No, no. They don't care. And why would I I've already given money to the government? In fact, I do it all the time. Pretty much every payday. Like a habit. In fact, the amount that we had to pay is going up. That's right. All of you got your nice tax cut and tax break. We have to pay more uninterrupted under the Republicans plan. I already give money. We're not better. Now. We're not. No, we still believe it's the right tax plan. We still believe was right way to go. Sure. We're we do right. You've you've never complained to me privately even off the air that you're mad about it. I haven't no you still believe it's the writing moved to go. Sure it is. Whatever. Keep saying it out loud. We're now. Now, we do not agree that we were the problem. We that the pride of disagree. The problem. The none of the the the problem with our tax code is not that Eric and Gary warned pain more now. No, no never ever. We'll be. Never been the problem know, whether whether I was being charged or not that's not the problem. No. People could change. Stay on point. Where we would have paid more money for the wall because we were taxed more by the Republicans, right? Paying my fair. Wall. Fair share. Yeah. So we, you know, we said this from day one. We said this isn't gonna go anywhere. They're gonna end up refunding their money because you still had to go through congress. And we still have as I said as of today still people calling up with ingenious new ideas. And we'll look if if we promote the fact that we actually save money by it's not a money problem with the Democrats. It's got nothing to do with money. But about funding, the what the Democrats all of a sudden became fiscal conservatives are now the concerned that money is spent efficiently and prudently. Yeah. That's it. Nancy? Can spend our money in better ways. Shut up. Well, I'm sure the lobbyists down in Puerto Rico or giving them plenty of ways that they can spend the government's money right hanging out on the beach. Yeah, they're hanging out on the beach. And I'm sure a lot do lobbyists have paid for the thirty Democrats to go down. Now Nancy was on the list, but didn't go probably a smart move. She was on the list that was going to go down go and the lobbyists brought down the thirty Democrats families, and and everybody else for a nice nice Caribbean vacation. During the shutdown. Nancy probably figured I probably shouldn't go to this. No, she I hear she likes to dance at bars. Yeah. Now case so Cortez to there's a lot of new news out there. She getting on CBS this case for not having a person of color on their twenty twenty election team. CBS news comes out with great publicity thing. Here our reporters going to cover the twenty twenty campaign. I heard one of the I was just on social media. I don't know who's defending that. Will they have different sounding names that was defense against a case. Coretec right. Their name sound different. Wow. And and we have said all along that the democrat party in the way, it's going to specially when you look at people like Rorick, and a k Castro Cortez where it's going is the fact that they constantly have to create new victims and therefore new oppressors and just by the process of elimination some of the victims, which are the press, which is being victimized by by Donald Trump, by the way, anybody complaining that a Castro Cortez is going after the media right now, she's going after the mainstream media the liberal media. You don't have the proper diversity that I expect. And we'll call you out every chance. Going to be funny. She's going to be campaigning with Bernie, and then she'll take over Bernie's microphone and tell them to give up. As black lives matter sixteen starting to see a lot on social media that you've got Democrats now that aren't pleased with her that believe she's out not for the benefit of the party as a whole. But for herself. Well, because when you when you can't really when you know, nothing about legislative items, then the only thing you can do is make a name for yourself and being an activist. And that's clearly the road. She's going down. Good luck. But good luck till the liberals in the media and an auto for friends on Capitol Hill because eventually she'll come after them. And we know it was going to happen. You saw the the bird box challenge while driving. Luckily, no injuries in that accident, and I'm sure you saw the picture. Yeah. The weekend. Yeah. It's so stupid. What do you do if you're the what do you do if you're the judge how long do you suspend that license for one hundred years? You're too stupid to have a license. I'm going to see if I can drive blindfolded. Now were they were they drinking probably I didn't see any all all this story this in Canada. Civil rights lawyers are crying foul this week over new rules had give police in Canada the power not to only test your breath for alcohol without reasonable cause. While you're driving. But to do it in homes bars restaurants stores or anywhere else. You may have been within two hours of operating vehicle under the Canadian government's newly implemented stricter impaired driving rules cops could theoretically come to your house and demand that you take a Breathalyzer test on the spot. Well, it doesn't matter if I'm sitting in my living room when I pull up and I'm completely sober. And I go into my home. And then I start drinking in my home. What does that prove? If you refuse to take the test in your home, you could be arrested charged with a criminal offence. Have your license suspended and still have to pay the mandatory minimum two thousand dollar fine. It's all part of a new federal Bill which saw fines and mandatory minimum printing sentences shoot up across the country last month in an effort to curb impaired driving which is found to kill about four people per day in Canada on average other changes to the criminal code under. The Bill include giving police sweeping new powers. These regulations are an abuse of power and infringe our rights and freedoms wrote a Toronto activists Sarah beach on Twitter this week in response to the news that Mississauga man getting breathalysed a beer store while returning empties. This is terrifying absolutely ridiculous. And only the beginning of the issues stemming from this new Bill Toronto based lawyer Michael Engels said in an interview with global news this week that the new. Police powers represent a serious arose of civil liberties someone could be unjustly targetted. He said by disgruntled co worker or family member who calls police with the fake complaint of bad driving. So they show up at your house after you've been driving to give you a Breathalyzer. Yeah. Okay. Within two hours. Apparently. So you couldn't then have a drink. Until two hours after arriving home. Yeah. Because if you don't if you decide you get home, you decide to have a beer. Then they show up or you've been home. You're not over the limit at that point. But if you decide to go home and have a mixed drink to mix drinks in two shots in your home. In the first hour, you're not well dry, right, right? In your home. And at that point if you have to John's that's being at home while in period, two hours later, you might be over the limit at that point. Yeah. So you wouldn't be able to drink within two hours of driving anywhere. After the fact after the fact, yes. Is what they claim in the law. We'll see if that stands or you could have had just one drink when you were out had been under the legal limit. Or even if you're, you know, little larger two drinks, and then go home and have four more within an hour. You know, two drinks in two shots or two double doubles. And you would be over the limit. The average person would be over the limited driving but not driving and not impaired. When you're on the road Braga's, right? You could be completely sober. I the feeling that even in Canada that will I don't think that's gonna stand. Yeah. Because you're basically telling people you cannot drink in.

And and we have said all along that the democrat party in the way, it's going to specially when you look at people like Rorick, and a k Castro Cortez where it's going is the fact that they constantly have to create new victims and therefore new oppressors and just by the process of elimination some of the victims, which are the press, which is being victimized by by Donald Trump, by the way, anybody complaining that a Casio Cortez is going after the media right now, she's going after the me the mainstream media the liberal media. You don't have the proper diversity that I expect. And we'll call you out every chance. It's going to be funny. She's going to be campaigning with burning and then she'll take over Bernie's microphone and tell him give up. As black lives matter sixteen starting to see a lot on social media that you've got Democrats now that aren't too pleased with her that believe she's out not for the benefit of the party as a whole. But for herself. Well, because when you when you can't really when you know, nothing about legislative items than the only thing you can do is make a name for yourself and being an activist. And that's clearly the road. She's going down. Good luck. But good luck till the liberals in the media, and and all of her friends on Capitol Hill because eventually she'll come after them. And we knew it was going to happen. You saw the the bird box challenge while driving. Luckily, no injuries in that accident. I'm sure you saw the picture. Yeah. The weekend. Yeah. It's so stupid. What do you do if you're the what do you do if you're the judge how long do you suspend that license for? One hundred years. You're too stupid to have a license. Going to see if I can drive blindfolded. Now were they were they drinking probably I didn't see any DUI all all awa- this story this in Canada. Civil rights lawyers are crying foul this week over new rules had good police in Canada, the power not to only test your breath for alcohol without reasonable calls while you're driving. But to do it in homes bars restaurants stores or anywhere else. You may have been within two hours of operating a vehicle under the Canadian government's newly invent a implemented stricter impaired driving rules cops could theoretically come to your house and demand that you take a Breathalyzer test on the spot. Well, it doesn't matter if I'm sitting in my living room, and I pull up and I'm completely sober. And I go into my home. And then I start drinking in my home. What does that prove if you refuse to take the test in your home, you could be arrested? Charged with a criminal events. Have your license suspended and still have to pay the mandatory minimum two thousand dollar fine. It's all part of new federal Bill which saw fines and mandatory minimum printing sentences shoot up across the country last month in an effort to curb impaired driving which is found to kill about four people per day in Canada on average other changes to the criminal code under. The Bill include giving police sweeping new powers. These regulations are an abuse of power and infringe our rights and freedoms wrote a Toronto activists Sarah beach on Twitter this week in response to the news that a Mississauga man getting breathalysed a beer store while returning empties. This is terrifying absolutely ridiculous. And only the beginning of the issues stemming from this new Bill Toronto based lawyer Michel Engels said in an interview with global news this week that the new police powers represent a serious erosion of civil liberties someone could be unjust. Targeted. He said by disgruntled coworker or family member who calls police with the fake complaint of bad driving. So they show up at your house after you've been driving to give you a Breathalyzer. Yeah. Okay. Within two hours. Apparently. So you couldn't then have a drink. Until two hours after arriving home. Yeah. Because if you don't if you decide to get home, you decide to have a beer. Then they show up or you you've been home. You're not over the limit at that point. But if you such side to go home and have a mixed drink to mixed drinks in two shots in your home in the first hour, right, right? Right in your home. And at that point if you have to that's not fair that's being at home Marlon period. Two hours later, you might be over the limit at that point. Yeah. So you wouldn't be able to drink within two hours of driving anywhere. After the fact after the fact, yes. Is what they claim in the law. We'll see if that stands or you could have had just one drink when you were out and had been under the legal limit. Or even if you're a little larger two drinks. And then go home and have four more within an hour, two drinks in two shots or two double doubles. And you would be over the limit. The average person would be over the limited driving but not driving and not impaired. When you around the road brightness, right? You could be completely sober. I the feeling that even in Canada that will I don't think that's gonna stand. Yup. Because you're basically telling people you cannot drink in.

"To the tune of ten thousand dollars. So please do that. And let's really raise some money for Fisher house and to let you know a little bit about why that's so important. I am honored to be joined by Jeanette Burgess. Now Janette is in Florida, but she has spent a whole lot of time caring for her husband and most specifically at the Brooks Army Medical Center after he retired. Turned from Afghanistan with an injury Ginette. Thank you so much for joining us. And thank you for your service to our country. Tell me a little bit about Daniel. And what happened in Afghanistan? In Afghanistan on a patrol Daniel on in. And. Lost his right, leg and other injuries. And do you. Remember where you were when you heard this news. At home in her home in Ohio. And a immediately wanted to be with him. Yeah. And. Back over here. It became clear. What am I going to do where am I going to go to stay to be with him? Right. And that's when we found the Fisher house that I hear this often Ginette that, you know, at this moment of of of trauma and emotion and just the worst possible thing, you know, when when you're the spouses somebody who serving overseas in combat, obviously, this is in the back of your mind. Then you find out you get that call and it's so remarkable how quickly fisherhouse becomes a part of your life, and they start solving problems right away. It it really evid at tell me a little bit about how important that was. And what they were able to provide you. Fisher houses. Using. In a point where we didn't know where we were gonna say how we could stay together as a family, and they opened their doors and allowed us to stay together. Not only as a family. But. To be able to to be together at a time when we weren't sure. And they said. He took care of my children. If they needed anything surprise because we were there at the beginning of the school year provided them school surprise anything needed day provided for you. You said Daniel was injured because of an IUD in Afghanistan, and those are always horrific horrific injuries. Tell me how bad it was and how long his recovery and and physical therapy process was seven years out as up November twentieth, and we're still recovering there. Every day. We handle injuries and deal with pre. We spent three years recovering immediately after that. Break. I had said he was a right leg amputee. Lower amputee. He has a bird. Skin graft from his ankle on the way to grind. And he had broken bones in his body. To work press from the blast. And so he now has lung issues. He had PTSD. He has a traumatic brain injury. Oh my God. Of injury. It goes on and on and it did take at least three years to get to a certain point. And as I said, we can handle these daily, and you you spend so much time down at Brooke Army Medical Center at the Fisher house there. Did you say you lived there for three years with your daughters? We lived on Brooke Burke army like for about three years. Yeah. We stayed in a Fisher house for. Close to eleven months how and that whole eleven months. The Fisher house did not anything from us. So that was me thinking itself because I couldn't NADA for hotel room for eleven months. I've heard a cut I can. Ginette? I've heard so often that when these incredible heroes. I sorta start to regain consciousness, and they they realize the extent of their injuries. So often the first thing they think of is, you know, house my wife house, my mom where my kids. I mean, they they obviously they're constantly worrying they're constantly hearing. How important was it for his recovery? To know the Fisher house was taking care of you. There were no worries that were new all he had to do is focus on getting better for his family. It's important to know that he could look out a hospital window and directly at where we were seeing it was literally a two minute walk and that in itself is a huge difference. It's such a great point. You didn't people don't realize that that these Fisher houses are right there. It's a cooperation with the V A M with the military. They're they're like, I said, you you can just get up and walk. And by the way, was he able at some point to come and visit you at the Fisher house because that's always a big moment. He was and we were able to share meals together at the time. Other people who were in the same situation as we were. It's so hard to believe the there was a time before fisherhouse McHugh imagine you having to go through what you went through living out of a hotel, not probably not even being able to have your kids with you. They'd have to be with their grandparents or something. I mean, I it's it's so it's such a gift fisherhouse exists, and they continue to be able to provide for you. And for so many other families. It is it is a huge gift because I don't know what I would have done. I didn't have anybody to take care of like it necessarily. So. Stay with me. So how old are your daughters now air fifteen and sixteen now man, and now you're all living together down in Florida. We are that's great. And it's just so listen. I can't thank you enough. Not only for the service you've given this country. Your whole family has given an obviously with Daniel has given. But also to be able to tell your story. It's not easy. And no it isn't. But it's so important because people need to hear and and God bless you. And I hope you have a great.

"So hopefully, this new move to bring these devices over the counter and lower the costs significantly will help a lot of people gain access to technology to assist them with hearing loss at a much lower cost. And and it much more accessible way than has been in the past. I've got to say it feels good to be right. Sometimes one of the big talking points that I've been making over the last year, or so is that the fitness bands, the exercise trackers like Fitbit that have been very popular I've been saying that they're just not gonna survive if they're going to try to continue to sell them one by one to exercise enthusiasts. It's just not that big a market and people interest in them, and it's just not a sustainable business plan as far as I can see. Instead, I'm saying that sales of these are going to go to large purchases by large organizations who will actually see a benefit from their people using fitness trackers. Like this the large employers who are self insured for health insurance the insurance companies and the large healthcare providers. Those are the ones who will see a benefit at the end of the month if they have healthier workers are healthier subscribers. That's why. I believe those are the ones who are going to be buying these things and buying them in bulk. Well, here's another data point that shows that this is probably on the right track. The US army has announced that the medical research and material command is buying five hundred forty fit bit charge to exercise trackers, and they're gonna spend eighty one thousand dollars to do this. So that's about the list price for these things. It's interesting that the reason that getting them not for fitness or exercise kind of application. Instead, they are using it to issue to selected and approved patients in a pilot effort in remote home monitoring. So another this way for them to track the exercise and the heart rate and other factors of the patients activities after they've been discharged from the hospital. And when they're home to see if they can prevent hospital readmissions can make sure that they are not relapsing or have having other problems. The target is for home honoring patients. Who are at high risk for hospitalization. And the idea is to get more information about their conditions between the regular offices that they would have. Now, why the Fitbit charged to well, the data from the activity tracker has to be able to get into the army's electric health record system in this case, it's the mobile healthcare environment them h c so far. They've only been able to demonstrate that the fit bit charged to can accurately and reliably get its data uploaded into the system. So that's why the army has chosen the the Fitbit product for this initial round again, it's an order of five hundred forty devices. They're going to be going to two different centers. Half of them are going to Brooke Army Medical Center and the other half are going to the Walter Reed national medical center, and another interesting thing about this is while the army could have bought these devices from retailers because of the large volume they're buying them directly from Fitbit. This is. One more bit of evidence in support of my theory that we're going to see more and more purchases direct from the manufacturer in large quantities for large buyers like this. So would be interesting to see how this pans out for the army, and obviously it's a big sale for Fitbit all in one big chunk. If you've got a computer if you've got a smartphone. If you've got any device attached to the internet, you've probably been the victim of a hacking attempt of one sort or another whether it's a spam phishing attack on by Email, or whether it somebody trying to access your Email account or other accounts that you have online or a website. That's a big problem, and as we've seen over and over data gets stolen and a lot of bad things happen out there. One of the things to keep in mind is that digital electronics make up a huge portion of modern healthcare as well. And these devices are not automatically immune to security issues. This has turned out to be a big problem, and it gets growing attention. There's an outfit called the equi institute e cri and they port annually on threats to healthcare safety of the top ten technology hazards that they cite for twenty nineteen. Number one.
