American Legion podcast co-host Mark Seavey will soon be stepping aside from his duties for Tango Alpha Lima as he turns his attention full-time to his National Judge Advocate responsibilities. The podcast will continue with co-hosts Jeff Daly and Ashley Gorbulja-Maldonado, who open this week’s episode with a recap of their appearance at the New York City Veterans Day Parade.
If you would like to nominate yourself or someone else to be a guest host, please fill out this form. We’ll review submissions and follow up with potential next steps.
Seavey is away for this week’s episode but will return. In this new episode, the co-hosts tackle a variety of issues including:
• The Connecticut National Guard, collective bargaining rights and whether the issue will affect the guard’s readiness. “I don’t think it’s conducive for a functioning military culture,” Daly says. “And it’s a huge waste of time.”
• A new report suggesting that the increase in troops’ pay could cause a decline in readiness.
• A murder charge indictment at Fort Hood, Texas, alleging a soldier killed a fellow soldier who was the mother of his child.
