The Talking with Heroes Talk Show program is not about politics. It is about offering our military personnel an opportunity to share their stories and helping to support our men and women in the military while they are deployed and to support their families back home. Talking with Heroes has been interviewing military personnel, military support and veterans groups, family members and others who support our troops since Dec. 2005.
