You remember the 19th Amendment, right?  It was in all the papers at the time. In this episode, Dave welcomes author Tyler Boyd onto the show to talk about his new book, “Tennessee Statesman Harry T. Boyd,” which tells the story of the gentleman who cast the deciding vote which ratified the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, giving women across America the right to vote. As it happens, the book’s author is the great grand-nephew of Harry T. Burn, and had extraordinary access to the documents and first-hand accounts of Burn, his life and impact on the state and the nation. As you will hear, Harry T. Burn’s contributions to the nation didn’t stop with the passage of women’s suffrage. Indeed, throughout his time in public life, which included a campaign for Tennessee governor and multiple terms in the Tennessee Senate, Burn’s commitment to limited government and responsible stewardship of the public trust was actually ahead of his time.

Then Dave sits down with a fellow military veteran (and fellow 18 wheeler driver), Ricochet Member Chuck Ceccacci. Chuck and Dave both drove military show trucks and participated together in the 2014 Rolling Thunder event, where they drove their show trucks through Washington DC, along with over 800,000 veterans on motorcycles, to call attention to military members who were held as Prisoners of War and Missing In Action. It’s understood that when a couple of veterans start telling stories, it’s going to be interesting, but who knew it would be so funny too? This is one episode you won’t want to miss

Finally, if you’re listening to Dave’s show, but you’re not a Ricochet member, there is a way you can get a 30 day free trial membership . Tune in to learn more!

    “Would you gear up and go again?”

    In 2010 I was taking names for the US Census. One couple I talked to, the Old man was a World War II marine, stormed the beaches at Normandy. “Well, not to worry;” I joked. “We probably won’t need you to do that again.” “I would if they asked” says this ninety plus year old veteran. 

    Damn. Just… damn. Once again I think I’ve got to go to the bard on this one.

    And gentlemen in England now a-bed
    Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

    It’s interesting, in that light, how that which many vets view as an ordinary and commonplace sentiment is, in reality, quite extraordinary.
