Veteran Groups and More - This Week on Gun Talk Radio
Mandeville, LA – It’s clarification from the Wounded Warrior Project, a firearms engraver, the founder of MarineParents.com, and more, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
The CEO of the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), Steven Nardizzi, will be a guest on this Sunday's show. This follows a week where show host Tom Gresham shared his email exchange with the PR director of WWP in which she indicated that the organization does not do interviews with media or appear at events which are related to guns. This set off a firestorm of reaction by hunters and shooters, many of whom have donated to help wounded veterans as well as putting on fundraising hunts and shoots for the WWP.
"I'm really glad that the Wounded Warrior Project is coming on the show to clarify their position on this," said Gresham. "It has been really confusing to see them taking donations from firearms manufacturers as well as hunting groups, and then to be told that they won't appear in public with us. The latest communication from WWP is that this is all a big mistake and that they want to clear it up with me this Sunday. "
Also on this Sunday, it’s the founder of MarineParents.com, Tracy Della Vecchia. Originally founded in “response to parents' needs to find information and to Connect & Share® with one another during deployments”, MarineParents.com’s services and programs have now expanded “to support Marines, and to support and educate Marine families.” One such program is Purple Heart Hero Support, which provides assistance and services to wounded Marines.

Guest Noelle Feucht is a busy woman. She is the CFO and jewelry designer at AKR, and moonlights as a hand engraver of firearms focusing on the old world Bulino style, and specializing in “reproduction and restoration work from the 1800’s”.
