Podcast is up from December 13, 2008 show.

I was honored to be surrounded by a group of amazing Veterans and also joined by Congressman Steve Scalise during this hour. We tackled the issues with the VA system in New Orleans and the future of the new Veterans Hospital. This show was extremely powerful and informative for our local veterans.
