Straight Outta Combat Radio-Honoring Combat Wisdom

SOCRS093- Boone Cutler- “On The Front Lines…Always”

September 4, 2019

Boone Cutler is an author, columnist, music video director and Warfighter Rights leader. He holds the distinguished honor of being the first nationally recognized radio talk show personality who is also a combat veteran from the current war.

Boone’s message is simple: “America has lost faith in what they used to believe were the heroes of Hollywood, America has become disgusted with the political climate of today so the only place to turn to and trust for leadership is the Warfighter.”

Boone began writing his Iraq War-inspired autobiographical account of what he experienced, Voodoo in Sadr City, during his combat tour in Iraq, and completed it during his two-year recovery from wartime injuries at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, during the Neglect Scandal of 2007.

After recovery, Boone began to see a major void in the Warfighter community.  He decided to approach Fox News affiliate 99.1 FM Talk with the concept of a new show that focused on national, international and social events based on the Warfighter’s perspective.

In 2011, his show Tipping Point with Boone Cutler was launched, providing a weekly platform for Boone’s raw Paratrooper, no-holds-barred style. The show quickly becoming a hit over the air waves and online, with an audience of fellow Warfighters and curious mainstream American listeners.

In June 2014, Tipping Point with Boone Cutler began its partnership with KNEWS 107.3 FM in Reno, NV airing for three hours every Saturday.

In 2010, Boone founded the National Warfighter Symposium to bring much needed attention to Warfighter issues, such as post-combat life – particularly the alarming rates of Warfighter suicide and homelessness.

America currently loses at least 23 Warfighters (22 veterans + 1 active duty) to suicide every single day. This is a number that Boone has made his mission to combat with his creation of “The Spartan Pledge”.  Warfighters promise not to take their own lives, and instead vow to find a new mission to help one another. He has chosen, founded by US Army Ranger Karl Monger as his signature charity.

In 2012, Boone was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson’s Disease, secondary to a blast-injury in Iraq.  He is currently starting to campaign for more awareness on the issue in the Warfighter Community.

Governor Sandoval of Nevada appointed Boone to the Inter-agency Council on Veteran Affairs for the 2012/2013 term. Boone is now very involved with the arts, after seeing first the healing effects of music therapy. He also works as music video producer / director for REDCON-1 MUSIC GROUP.

In 2014, Boone became the national spokesperson for the Warfighter Rights’ Movement whose mission is to end Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder phobia that results in discrimination against Warfighters in employment, housing and the judicial process.

Boone spoke at the 2016 World Peace Conference.
