“Being on the Christina Silva Show ‘Educating our Veterans Live’ was a great experience. As a writer I know everyone has a story to tell and this an opportunity for me to tell my story. I don’t normally talk about myself, but in this instance I didn’t mind at all. Especially since it was an opportunity to pass on the knowledge about my field of endeavor and my Marine Corps past. Christina
kept the interview light, she was upbeat, and it was a lot of fun.” – Robert L. Jackson
