Episode 200 with Mitchell ‘Taco’ Bell.
Tonight we welcome back to the this milestone show, our buddy, Taco.
Lieutenant Colonel (ret) Mitchell “Taco” Bell joined the Marine Corps in 1986 and was winged a Naval Aviator in January of 1991. He flew the KC-130 in Cherry Point, NC, Okinawa Japan and Fort Worth TX in the Reserves. His primary duty has been Recruiting for nine of his 29 years in the Marine Corps.
In 1998, he left active duty, was hired by American Airlines, and currently flies the Boeing 787 around the world. As a reservist, he ran an old Mig Base in TQ Iraq from 2005 to 2006 and worked with the Afghan Police for 8 months in 2008 and again for a short tour in 2009 with Prison Corrections over in Afghanistan.
Taco currently assists with numerous charities and Veterans organizations in the DFW area. He directs the Purple Hearts Reunited Valor Guard, a return team dedicated to delivering lost medals of valor across the country. In addition, Taco has conducted return ceremonies himself, on behalf of Purple Hearts Reunited (PHR). He has been on the show before talking about PHR before and the great things that organization does.
We look forward to talking with him tonight about not only PHR but also his connection and insight into the horrible Oklahoma City Bombing that happened 25 years ago last Sunday. All of that in addition to his perspective and insight on current events and the impact he has seen of the current COVID-19 pandemic on the travel industry.
