UPDATE: REPLAY ADDED!! Their Finest Hour returns to Vigilant Liberty Radio tonight at 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific! First up on the program will be a pre-recorded segment with the awesome Katrina Jørgensen (@Veribatim)! Katrina’s been on the program before, and has graciously had me as a guest on her program, The World Class Hour, which airs via FTR Radio on Tuesday nights at 11 Eastern. You can also find Katrina at her own site, A Single Voice, plus she also writes for IJReview and contributes to Pocket Full of Liberty (as I do!). We recorded the segment on Saturday afternoon (July 26) and discussed Ukraine/Russia and the Middle East primarily so hopefully it isn’t too dated by show time!

After the segment with Katrina, I’ll be live to have some thoughts on the day’s news, some reflections on the 100th Anniversary of the start of World War I (today), and the phones & Skype will be open too, so if you want a chance to sound off, this is it!

The best way join the program is in VLR’s chatroom with embedded show player (refresh the page at showtime to get the live stream in the player). Otherwise, you can listen using the player here in the right sidebar or direct at VLR’s Spreaker page or one of their mobile apps.

And here’s the show replay! (Click “Spreaker” in the player for the offline copy download site)

Brigadier General Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., USA (June 6, 1944)

Theodore Roosevelt III, known usually as “Junior” and “Ted” to his friends and family, was born on September 13, 1887 in Cove Neck, Oyster Bay, New York. Ted’s father was Theodore Roosevelt, at the time Assistant Secretary of the Navy and later the Governor of New York, the 25th Vice President, and the 26th President of the United States.

Ted Roosevelt served throughout his life in both the public and private sector. He served as a Presidential appointee as Governor of Puerto Rico (1929-1932) and Governor General of the Philippines (1932-1933). He even had held one of the same offices as his father: Assistant Secretary of the Navy (1921-1924). He was an elected member of the New York State Assembly in 1920-21. In the private sector, he was both the Chairman of the Board of American Express and a Vice President at Doubleday books.

Ted Roosevelt was also a military hero, serving with distinction and valor in both World War I and World War II.
