The team at Frontlines of Freedom is made up of military, academic and broadcasting professionals, who work together to make this a unique and informative show.
Lt. Col. Denny Gillem
US Army (Ret.) – Host
“Colonel Gillem” is a highly decorated Airborne Ranger who was awarded two Purple Hearts and seven awards for Valor, while serving two tours in Vietnam. He is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, NY (Go Army!) and also served as a Mideast War Planner.
While serving as an Army Advisor to the Michigan Army National Guard, Denny and wife Marilyn fell in love with Western Michigan. Denny concluded his 22 year career as an infantryman and the family settled in the Grand Rapids area. Since then, Denny has worked in sales, leadership, and academic positions.
Denny’s vision for Frontlines of Freedom is to focus on the brave Americans who have and are defending our freedom. He drives home the fact, in every show, that freedom is not free, rather, the price is paid by the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines, who serve in harm’s way.
