Show #27: Veterans, Veteran Services, and the USO of North Carolina


The Radio 4 the Ages team was thrilled to have John Falkenbury (USO of North Carolina) and Edwina Gray-Write (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs) joining us in the studio this Sunday.  John Falkenbury serves as President and COO of USO of North Carolina.  As a third generation career military officer, John shared with us the USO of North Carolina’s excitement about their upcoming Vietnam Veterans Homecoming Celebration at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, which will be held on March 31st.  With gates opening at 9:00am and artists including The Charlie Daniels Band, George Clinton & the Parliment Funkadelics, and Rockie Lynne (who was kind enough to call us during the show) performing, this homecoming event is looking to be a wonderful show of appreciation for those in our community who served their country during the Vietnam war.  Also joining us was Edwina Gray-Write from the U.S. Department of Vertans Affairs – W.G. Hefner VA Medical Center.  We learned that representatives from Veterans Affairs will also be at the homecoming event to help vets find out what services are available to them, many of which they may not even be aware of.  If you are a veteran, or have a family member that is a veteran, we here at Radio 4 the Ages would like to show appreciation for the service to our country and would encourage you to check out this wonderful homecoming event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.  Tune In, Call In, Get Involved!

Show #24: Transitioning with care

Show #24: Transitioning with care

This Sunday was Paul Simon Day! Yes, the fellow baby boomer and “Simon” in Simon & Garfunkel. That Paul Simon. In addition to the stellar musical theme this week, we talked with Cindy Greer and Karen Chisholm (both of Transition with Care) about some of the challenges we, or our lived ones, face when transitioning from a home to some other form of housing such as assisted living, retirement communities, or other senior housing options. We learn that “Relocation Stress Disorder” can be a real issue affecting senior adults and there are steps one can take to help streamline the transitioning process. We were so happy to have Cindy and Karen in the studio. Tune in, call in, get involved!
