Gail Harris is Gale Force!

NIPMates,

As we prepare for the landfall of Hurricane Matthew down in Florida, there is another force of nature at work.

NIP's own retired Captain Gail Harris is renowned as an author ("A Woman's War"), motivational speaker and columnist for the new Military-themed news network Lima Charlie, a leading source of news impacting the military community. She also does a weekly R& B radio show Wednesday Evenings (6 - 8PM MT) on KDUR, one of two public radio stations in Durango, Colorado.

She continues to spread the word about the traditions of Naval Intelligence, and the amazing changes that came during her active duty service. She also does one of the few (if not only) R&B shows in the Four Corners Region of the West. Her station does two major fund raising drives each year. This Friday begins her Fall Drive. As part of the process, Gail and several other "prominent" community members have been asked to donate an hour of their time to come on the air and encourage friends and family to donate while on the air. She will be on the air this Friday 10:00 - 11:00MT/12:00 - 1:00PM EST. There is a "friendly" competition among those participating to see who can get the most people to call in.

Gail is asking for folks to call in at 970-247-7262 and pledge $5.00. If you can afford to do more, great. KDUR is part of Fort Lewis College. The major advantage is 100% of the money raised goes towards operating costs of the radio station. Below is all of the info on the station. Thanks in advance.

You can listen to the shows live by streaming online. Here's the web site:
