Frontlines of Freedom is a military news & talk radio show designed to address and discuss the most pressing issues facing our armed forces, veterans and their families.
Frontlines of Freedom is hosted by Lt. Col. Denny Gillem, U.S. Army (Retired), a West Point graduate and highly decorated combat veteran who also served as a Mideast War Planner during his 22 years on active duty.
Besides the current war and military readiness, the show addresses military families, veteran’s activities and homeland security issues. Guests on the show include Cabinet members, generals, admirals, officers of all ranks, enlisted members, politicians, and family members.
“Colonel Gillem” is a highly decorated Airborne Ranger who was awarded two Purple Hearts and seven awards for Valor, while serving two tours in Vietnam. He is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, NY (Go Army!) and also served as a Mideast War Planner.
While serving as an Army Advisor to the Michigan Army National Guard, Denny and wife Marilyn fell in love with Western Michigan. Denny concluded his 22 year career as an infantryman and the family settled in the Grand Rapids area. Since then, Denny has worked in sales, leadership, and academic positions, where he still teaches today.
Denny’s vision for Frontlines of Freedom is to focus on the brave Americans who have and are defending our freedom. He drives home the fact, in every show, that freedom is not free, rather, the price is paid by the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines, who serve in harm’s way.
