With heavy hearts and deepest condolences to his family and friends, Writestream Radio announces the death of our good friend and Military Monday host John Gresham. In his memory, we’re replaying his last live Military Monday episode with guest, USNI Press author Vince O’Hara on Monday, July 4 at 1 p.m. Eastern.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to meet my good friend John Gresham in person at least one time, after having been social media friends for years (thanks to meeting on twitter in 2010).
A highly accomplished military historian, journalist and author, John was often featured in documentaries for various cable channels. Still, when I approached him in early 2013 about hosting #MilitaryMonday onWritestream Radio Network, he didn’t hesitate. In fact, he embraced the opportunity and considered it an honor. And week after week, he produced a high quality show with expert guests on a wide range of issues and topics pertaining to the U.S. military.
Beyond that, John had a wonderful sense of humor. This photo was taken at Milliken’s Reef on Port Canveral in Brevard County, Florida, where we enjoyed a delicious meal and many laughs. Little did I know it would be the one and only time I’d see him in person.
We’re re-running his last live show on the network this coming Monday, July 4 and plans are in the works for a special tribute show. Look for an announcement soon.
RIP, my friend. I’ll miss you but know that you are in a much better place. Thank you for everything. God bless you.
Look for details soon on a forthcoming tribute broadcast of Military Monday.
