Signing Day + Foraging for Survival + "For The Heroes" - January 8, 2023

Hosted by Jim Fausone

Our Community Salutes

Our Community Salutes Was Founded in 2009

Our Community Salutes was started in 2009 by Dr. Ken Hartman to acknowledge high school kids that were enlisting in the military and support that family decision.

This grassroots effort coordinated by OCS holds events around the country to give the enlistees their own “signing day.” It can be as simple as a presentation and pizza or an elaborate affair with speakers.

OCS has grown over the years to offer a variety of support materials for these local programs.

Kesling looked into the reasons for the courses taught and the ethics of field butchery and ethical living off the land with host Jim Fausone.
