Doug Sandberg and a friend combined their curiosity and creativity with electronic parts they bought at supply stores in New York city and built a small radio station when they were teenagers. Sandberg did not know then of the unique experiences ahead in his life.
The Vietnam-era veteran served at Minot Air Force base in North Dakota from 1968 to 1972. There he performed service work inside the silos of minuteman intercontinental missiles and watched as B-52 bombers departed for missions over Vietnam.
After the Air Force, Sandberg embarked on a career in the electrical industry.
His life swung virtually full circle in retirement. He returned to radio in 2018. Today he hosts a program called “Let’s Talk Vets” on a public station in New York state. Featuring a myriad of veterans’ issues, the show has been an eye opener for Sandberg. Join us to hear what Doug has learned, and why he has no intention of leaving the studio.
