Ben Buehler-Garcia never served in the military – which is why he supports those who do.
For over 25 years he has volunteered with various initiatives to support military families including the Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee, Employer Support of the Guard & Reserve, USS Tucson 770 Club, the Tucson Community Cares Foundation and as the Honorary Commander for the 12th Air Force/Air Forces Southern.
But almost a decade ago, Ben took over the still-new American Warrior Radio and built it into a platform that advocates for veterans by giving them a platform on both public radio and podcast networks to tell their stories. Ben is a seasoned pro at mining veterans’ stories for content that will help bridge the civil-military divide and ensure that veterans’ wisdom and experiences do not get memory-holed.
In a time when so many veterans are trying to find their voice and when the country is often confused about the warfighter experience, Ben has selflessly served a crucial role in the American narrative.
