Here’s what I believe. I believe that somebody in or around West Jordan, Utah, has a vacant building they’re not using. I also believe this person, after reading the story below, will happily make that building available to my friend, Alton Thacker. I wish I could make it happen myself, but I’m far from Utah, and not terribly well-connected to West Jordan. But I believe someone here is. I hope so, anyway. Thanks.

"We Bought a Lodge" is HERE!

Last season on Returning The Favor with Mike Rowe we featured SSG Travis Mills, and told you about the incredible retreat he built in Maine for wounded vets and their families.

Many of you responded by saying that Travis was a hit show waiting to happen...

Well, we agree!

So, please SHARE this teaser if this looks like a show you would watch...we sure would!

I don't know if Hollywood is ready for a light-hearted show about a genuine war hero without a trace of self-pity, a remarkable family, and a terrific sense of humor. But I'm pretty sure the country is...

“We Know a Lot of the Same People”

Last night at Loch Bar in Baltimore, a guy named Chris Santiago walked over to my table, introduced himself, and thanked me for featuring SSG Travis Mills on a recent episode Returning The Favor. I told him it was my pleasure, and asked him what he liked about the episode.

Chris said the usual stuff I always hear about Travis – his courage, his refusal to quit, his unflagging sense of humor, and his ability to inspire by not only overcoming his injuries, but by giving back in a way that’s helping other wounded vets. He also told me how great it was to see wounded veterans out in the world – giving back - without the usual pretense of pandering and pity that too often accompany Hollywood portrayals. I appreciated hearing that.

Chris offered to buy me a drink, and I said no thanks. The drinks were already stacked up on the runway, and it was long past my bedtime. So we shook hands, and Chris asked me to give Travis his regards if our paths should ever cross again. I asked Chris if Travis would recognize his name, and he said it was possible. “We know a lot of the same people,” he said. So I took a photo and promised to send it to Travis.

This morning, as I scrolled through the photos in my phone, reliving the fuzzier parts of last night, I found the photo, and decided to post it here instead. Partly because I know Travis follows this page, and partly because I googled Chris Santiago, to see why he and Travis might know “a lot of the same people.”

I found the following article, which I encourage you to read. http://cbsn.ws/2i5Bbm5

It's a few years old, but it tells an important story of several veterans who struggled to assimilate back into civilian life after serving their country. Including, a soldier named Chris Santiago, who had the misfortune of stepping on an IED outside of Fallujah back in 2006.

So. Chris Santiago lost both his legs fighting on my behalf. And last night, he wanted to say thanks and buy me a drink.

Honestly, the modesty and humility of these men and women leave me utterly gob-smacked.

This Veteran’s Day, if you find yourself in close proximity to a beverage – frosty or otherwise, do me a favor - raise your glass to Chris Santiago, and all the others who risked everything for the likes of you and me, and paid dearly for their service.

Remember them, and if you’re in a position to do so, find a way to return the favor.

Off The Wall

My friends at Hudsun Media are busy researching the second season of Returning the Favor. At least, they're supposed to be. Someone appears to have gotten distracted by the copious flattery on my wall, and concocted a poster that's simply too ridiculous not to share.

Actually, I was very touched by this, and reminded of the only "critics" whose opinions actually matter...

YOURS!

Not since Dirty Jobs have I seen the viewers take over a show to this degree. You not only programmed the first season, you made the second season possible. We're all grateful. Keep the suggestions coming, and feel free to share.

I love this exchange on the RTF page. The sentiment speaks for itself, but also begs a bigger question – where else but here, can a group of Indiana Combat Veterans dealing with PTSD cross paths with a group of young girls in Portland learning how to use power tools? Where else can a guy like Jason Zaideman – with his garage full of beat up motorcycles and beat up soldiers – find common cause with a woman like Katie Hughes, and her makeshift classroom at University of Portland?

I don’t know what Facebook had in mind when they allowed me to do this show, but if they were looking to remind America that common decency often pops up in uncommon places, I think it's working. Of the 20,000 plus comments this show has generated so far, I can’t find a bad one. And I've read them all. Extraordinary.

Look for the next episode this Tuesday. And if your newsfeed is bulging with too much bad news, check out the first few episodes of Returning The Favor, and follow the page. You won't be disappointed. In the meantime, have a great Sunday, and hang tough, Florida.

PS. My mother, who joined me yesterday for another fantastic shoot in Baltimore, was told by my producer that Returning the Favor had been viewed over 22 million times. She smiled and congratulated him. Then, while the cameras were still rolling - she reminded him that her little story about the missing Big Blue Purse has over sixty million views...

Mothers.
