When I was still active duty military, I had a weekly radio show at FT Irwin as “The Voice of the Blackhorse”; it was a classic rock show. I was assigned to the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment (OPFOR) and I worked with the 13th Public Affairs guys as a volunteer.
I didn’t realize how appreciated my show was, until one day I was at the FT Irwin commissary, and I was chatting with a lady who suddenly recognized my voice and exclaimed “Oh my God, thank you SO much for what you do!” I blushed and said “Anytime”. She introduced herself as the Garrison Commander’s wife, and she had a favor to ask of me.
I raised an eyebrow, “Sure, what did you have in mind?”
