War Hero On The Radio Tuesday Night!

Iraq Tank Commander Nick Popaditch (The Cigar Marine) on Political Pistachio Radio!

On The Radio Tuesday Night!

ONCE A MARINE – An Iraq War Tank Commander’s Inspirational Story of Combat, Courage, and Recovery. Nick Popaditch appeared in an AP photo on April 9, 2003. The striking image was of the Marine tank commander smoking a victory cigar in his tank, the haunting statue of Saddam Hussein hovering in the background. “Gunny Pop” was immortalized forever as “The Cigar Marine.” A year later he fought heroically in the First Battle for Fallujah and suffered head wounds that left him legally blind and partially deaf. The United States Marine Corps awarded him a Silver Star for his valor and combat innovation. Coming home, however, is when the toughest fight of his life began – a battle to remain the man and Marine he was. Join Political Pistachio Radio on Tuesday Night at 10:00 pm Eastern Time/7:00 pm Pacific for a riveting interview with Nick Popaditch, a Marine’s Marine, a man who embodies everything noble and proud in the Corps’ long tradition.

  1. Babies are necessary to grown-ups. A new baby is like the beginning of all things–wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities. In a world that is cutting down its trees to build highways, losing its earth to concrete … babies are almost the only remaining link with nature, with the natural world of living things from which we spring.EdaJ.LeShanEda J.
