Michael J Martin Music & Veterans Beer Company - October 2016
‘Ol Troubadour Michael J Martin
Our guest this week on Veterans Radio is Michael J. Martin’s daughter, Andy Martin, who will be sharing some stories about her Dad. And, of course, we will be playing many of his songs.
Michael J. Martin was a frequent guest on Veterans Radio and is still one of our favorites. He was one of those “tried and true ol’ troubadours”. He lived the songs he wrote and sang. His music has some miles on it. For years, he traveled throughout America, performing at concerts, colleges, clubs, pubs, churches, prisons, military bases, museums, biker bars, hospitals, and honky tonks. Michael J. Martin served 12 months in Vietnam, “in the bush”, mostly as a Pointman, with the 11th Infantry / American Division, class of 1968-69. His citations include: Silver and Bronze Stars, Purple Heart, and Combat Infantryman’s Badge.
He is gone now but he lives on through his music. Listen to some of his music here.
Veteran Beer Company
And this week’s veteran owned business is one many of you will like. It is the Veteran Beer Company. We’ll be talking with Gregg Lewandusky, Marine Corp Veteran, and Director for the State of Michigan and Internet & Social Media Director for the Veteran Beer Company.
