He has appeared as a guest speaker on many television and radio shows, and he recently addressed the members and guests of the Medal of Honor Society in Pueblo, Colorado.

Sid's work has brought him into personal contact with thousands of our living heroes and their families, and it is his great honor to share these amazing stories with the world.
