Our guests this week are: Dr. Vivek Murthy who served as the 19th and now 21st Surgeon General of the United States under Presidents Obama and Biden. The surgeon general discusses the rapid increase in COVID-19 and calls it an “all-in moment” for the nation as the coronavirus pandemic becomes a more regional phenomenon. Murthy discusses the Delta variant and the CDC’s recommended mask mandate as well as the necessity for Americans to get vaccinated ASAP and the potential for a booster shot. Then we speak with Robert Lewis, National Communications Director for the Disabled Veterans of America. The Disabled American Veterans is an organization created in 1920 by World War I veterans for disabled military veterans of the United States Armed Forces that helps them and their families through various means. Lewis discusses how the DAV helps veterans get the benefits they've earned and talked about their mission in the face of COVID-19.
