- Phil Tower - Director of News & Information Programming, WOOD-AM / FM, Grand Rapids

The show is very well produced, and it's a gold mine for our Quarterly Issues Public File which shows the FCC and the community that our station is addressing important community issues in a very good way. Colonel Gillem is also a great expert guest for our News Talk station on a variety of top news issues."

What listeners are saying about Frontlines of Freedom
I ran across your radio show on AM 770 here in the Seattle area about a year and a half ago looking for something interesting to listen to. Boy, I sure did. I have been an avid listener and learner since. I had 4 brothers who all served for our country.
I love, love your bumper music. Don't count on me doing those exercises during the breaks though. Way beyond my capabilities :-) Keep up the good work. I always look forward to you next radio show!

Let me applaud you on this amazing talk show! I heard your show for the first time this past weekend. I come from a military family and it is so nice to hear a show in support of our military; and to hear it from the "experts" rather than through regular media channels. So THANK YOU!
- Renate S., listener to WOOD-AM/FM
I heard your radio broadcast for the first time on my way home from work this morning. As a veteran I spent seven years in the Airborne and Infantry. I must say, I was very impressed with your show, and you now have a new fan. I will be spreading the word about your program. Fight the good fight. Thank you!!
- Will Adams, listener to WKZO-AM
Love your program on the radio. I am listening in Marin County, CA. Thanks for all the honest talk.
- Jan B., listener in Fresno, CA
Love the show - one of the best parts of the week. You guys do a great job.
- Michael Z.
Denny has a fascinating show. I learn something every time I listen. Denny is very passionate about the rights of service men and women.
What I like about Frontlines of Freedom and why I listen, is because the show covers many areas: current events, military history, book reviews, and commentary. When Denny interviewed me on the show, it was personal. He can talk the talk and walk the walk.
- Brian Sheetz, U.S. Army combat veteran - Distinguished Service Cross and Silver Star recipient
I have been a regular "Frontlines of Freedom" listener from its beginning. It is an entertaining, informative and important program.
Frontlines of Freedom is about more than information; it's about community involvement. And while the show is about our nation's military it's not just for our military. Only about one percent of the US population currently serves in uniform - the other 99% don't, and don't know much (or anything) about those who do.
Frontlines of Freedom delivers information that the other 99% need to know, and consistently informs its listeners how they can give back to the vet population through its wide-ranging interviews and calls to action. Viewed through this perspective, Frontlines of Freedom actually performs a valuable public service for the communities in which it is present.
- Paul Ryan, Captain, US Navy Reserve (Retired)
Denny has great insight, experience, knowledge & honest accurate content!
Denny is passionate about the message that he brings to his listeners and he has inspired excitement in those that have similar beliefs. If you haven't tuned in to Frontlines of Freedom, turn on your radio NOW. This is also a great place to market your business if the military audience and their families are a target market of your business.
Been listening via podcast for almost a year. I relly enjoy the show and feel better informed for listening! Keep up the Good work! (sharp Salute)
