Robbie Watson – Behind the Scenes

Image

One of the perks of broadcasting include an occasional, behind the scenes look at some of the community’s Leaders and how they operate in their respective fields.   Last night was one such occasion at Riverside, home to Fort Benning’s Commanding General MG HR McMaster where I got a rare glimpse at this well known leader, who has served during the last decade at war.

Civilians are often far removed from military life even though our neighbors at Fort Benning frequently, rotate in and out of harm’s way.  Last night, I met a mother who deployed four times during Operation Iraqi freedom. She sacrificed four out of her daughter’s eight years to serve our country.  Though I have had the pleasure of meeting many athletes, superstars, and politicians during my two decades in broadcasting, nothing tops spending time with these men and women in uniform who are real heroes.
