On the Marine Corps birthday, we took to the podcast to spread the word on efforts by SUNY Broome students to help victims of Hurrican Maria in Puerto Rico. On November 19, 2017, at American Legion Post 80 in Binghamton NY, there will be a charity event from 8AM - 12noon. We also took a moment to celebrate the Marine Corps, salute our veterans, and then discuss some of the impact from the Broome County elections. Spread the word!

On October 4, 2017 Michael "Vass" Vasquez spoke on-air in Binghamton and Utica radio stations. The subjects covered affect tens of thousands in each community.

Feel free to coment on either, or both, and share.
