Our first guest today is American Legion’s First Female National Commander
U.S. Army veteran Denise H. Rohan. She discusses the American Legion and what she promotes ‘Family First’ agenda.

U.S. Army veteran Denise H. Rohan made history on Aug. 24 when she became the first woman to be elected to the top position of the nation’s largest veteran’s organization during The American Legion’s 99th National Convention. Her theme for her year: “Family First!”

“It is time to invite our communities into American Legion post homes to show America what we are all about,” she said. “There are families of deployed service members across the nation. There are Gold Star families who wonder if anyone truly understands their sacrifice. And there are young people in need of strong educational and patriotic programs. The American Legion Family is ready to assist and lead in all these areas. I am calling on American Legion posts across the country and even overseas to hold the largest Veterans Day dinners in the world so we can show the public that we are still serving America.”  This year marks the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entry into World War I. Following the war, The American Legion was founded by a group of World War I veterans in Paris and dedicated itself to the four pillars of providing a strong national defense; care and rehabilitative programs for veterans; patriotic programs for young people; and Americanism.

W4Cy & W4VET 11-09-2017

Our guest is  D.R. “Buck” Montgomery Stuntman – Actor, Artist and Story Teller his subject is American Western history and culture to how it was portrayed not only in his career but in the L.Ron  Hubbard’s stories.

D.R. Buck Montgomery’s (or Dr. Buck as most know him) sense for adventure and pursuit of interesting and varied careers are undeniably the influence of his favorite role model… an adventurer, photographer and story teller…his father.
At the early age of seven, his father passed on one simple word of advice that would forever be his inspiration and life long quest…”If you don’t have stories to tell, it means you haven’t lived life”.
His “Stunt” career started while working as an Animator at Disney Studios. On a visit to the Back Lots , a second unit person approached Buck and simply asked the question, “Can you fall off a horse kid?”…followed with, “It pays $50 bucks”. Thus began another chapter in his growing book of “story telling”.
Just A Few Of Buck’s Screen Credits Include:
“The Sacketts” ~ 1979 ~ Doubled Tom Selleck ~ Stunts
The “Long Riders” ~ 1980 ~ Doubled Bob Carradine ~ Running atop a moving train ~ Stunts (See Below)
Willie Nelson’s “Barbarosa” ~ 1982 ~ Stunts
“Shadow Riders” ~ 1982 ~ Stunts
Clint Eastwood’s “Pale Rider” ~ 1985 ~ Doubled Eastwood, California location ~ Stunts
“Back To The Future III” ~ 1990 ~ Stunts
“Bonanza -The Return” ~ 1993 ~ Stunts
“Bonanza -Under Attack” ~ 1995 ~ Stunts (worked with Leonard “Spock” Nimoy, providing Buck with a most amazing tale to add to his ever growing book of stories.
C-BAR & Bannock ~ Recently filmed…and Acted in. (Memorizing Dialog…harder that getting drug by a horse)
Oh, and had the gun shot out of his hand, by Roy Rogers, during a Live Show! Great Story! He is also currently in post production stages on his own feature film project, “Best Laid Plans”, a “true” old west story about Murder, Man Hunt and Lost Treasure that made headlines in the New York Times in… 1892!…About a guy named…Buck Montgomery…REALLY! It’s easy to see that Buck listened to his father… He’s lived life! …and has the stories to prove it!

Jodi Grant, Executive Director, Afterschool Alliance is our next guest she discusses  the importance of afterschool programs for students, families and communities and the ways they help students succeed in school and in life. Since 2005, Jodi Grant has been Executive Director of the Afterschool Alliance, a non-profit public awareness and advocacy organization working to ensure that all children and youth have access to quality, affordable afterschool programs. Jodi graduated from Yale University with honors and received her law degree from Harvard University. She currently serves on the Board of Partners for Livable Communities and is a Trustee of America’s Promise. She lives with her husband and two children in Bethesda, Maryland.




Joining Jodi is Sage Learn of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.  Sage Learn joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of America in February 2015 and is responsible for providing ongoing leadership in the planning and implementation of work related to BGCA Government Relations policy and advocacy efforts.  Her advocacy portfolio includes but is not limited to; education, health, nutrition, safety, character development and Native issues.

Afterschool programs keep kids safe, inspire them to learn and help working families. Participation in afterschool programs has increased in recent years, but the unmet demand is still huge. Today, for every child in an afterschool program, two more are waiting to get in. Unmet demand is especially high in rural communities and communities of concentrated poverty. One in five students in the United States is unsupervised after the school day ends.

Launched in October 2000, Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. This year, 1 million people will join some 8,000 Lights On Afterschool events across the country and at U.S. military bases worldwide.
