Frontlines of Freedom and AMVETS Partner To Support Veterans
Weekly military talk show and respected veterans service organization join forces to inform and engage Americans
The nation’s most widely heard military and veterans talk radio program, Frontlines of Freedom, announces a long-term partnership with AMVETS, one of the largest and most proactive veterans service organizations in America.
Frontlines of Freedom’s title partnership with AMVETS incorporates information sharing on important veterans issues and legislation, shared access to leading voices on military and veteran support, and action based opportunities for veterans and patriotic Americans to benefit their communities and veterans nationwide.
“Listeners to Frontlines of Freedom are already benefiting from this partnership through the additional information and data on important veterans issues and the experts it has brought to the program,” says Josh Leng, Frontlines of Freedom’s Co-Creator and Executive Producer. He puts perspective to the partnership saying, “Eleanor Roosevelt’s poignant quote, ‘With great freedoms, comes great responsibility,’ is just the lens we view our role. From our debut episode more than seven years ago, it has always been our team’s responsibility to develop the best resources and partnerships, that enable us to deliver a comprehensive, trusted, and entertaining Frontlines of Freedom program, each and every week.”
Frontlines of Freedom’s Host, Denny Gillem, LTC, U.S. Army (Retired) makes it clear that, “AMVETS is the most inclusive veterans organization in our country, and they truly care about our veterans. AMVETS and its members are proactively engaging in local and national events and initiatives to improve the provisioning of health care for veterans, preservation of earned benefits, recognition of service, encouraging Americanism, and positively representing veterans to our nation as a whole.”
Gillem is a West Point graduate, Airborne Ranger, and highly decorated combat veteran who also served as a Mideast War Planner during his 22 years on active duty.
‘The Colonel’ continues by pointing out that, “Army Rangers lead the way, and AMVETS is leading the way in supporting our veterans. As a Life Member of AMVETS, I am proud to be an extended member of their team.”
Cross-promotion efforts between AMVETS and Frontlines of Freedom are a natural fit and have and will continue to grow.
Leng also notes the recent surge in radio stations airing Frontlines of Freedom, “In just over a year, we’ve welcomed 46 new affiliate radio stations to the Frontlines of Freedom family. This past week we reached the 60 affiliate stations mark. The enthusiasm for Frontlines of Freedom by station Owners, GMs and Program Directors has really started to snowball. Every week, Frontlines of Freedom gives insight into and pays tribute to the men and women who have sacrificed for our freedoms, and that is something radio stations identify with and want to support.”
