Our scheduled guests on POW/MIA Radio for Sunday, March 9, 2014 are:
2:00pm Mtn – News and Views: An hour of the latest POW/MIA and
3:00pm Mtn - Ms. Diane Van Renselaar: Because of technical
problems last Sunday, we are bringing Diane back this Sunday.
She will be talking about the cases of some of our missing Americans
from around this timeframe of the year, why we need to be concerned
about the discussions to revamp DPMO and JPAC and other events in
the POW/MIA issue. We will also be discussing Diane’s work on
her husband Larry’s case and her extensive work in the POW/MIA
issue. Our interview will cover as many other issues
that are relevant as time permits. Diane is the wife of Lt.
Larry Jack Van Renselaar US Navy, who along with his bombardier,
“Spike” Spinelli went missing on September 30, 1968. He was
listed as Category 1, indicating “confirmed enemy knowledge”.
Diane has worked to uncover the truth about her husband’s case and
has had to live with the inconsistencies, obfuscations and outward
lies by our government in many other aspects of the issue as well.
4:00pm Mtn - Dr. Jim Tuorila: Jim is Founder, Past President,
Pilot and Board Member of Freedom Flight, Inc. He has
had a long and distinguished career as a VA employee, as a
private-practice psychologist and as an adjunct professor of
psychology. In 2008, Dr. Tuorila was elected as the new
Surgeon General for the International Veterans of Foreign Wars
organization. His resume includes an M.A. from Wichita State

Jim has been a long-time activist for our POW/MIAs with several
organizations and Freedom Flight, a non-profit, educational
corporation established in 1988, that seeks to honor and increase
the awareness of the still missing Prisoners of War - Missing in
Action (POW-MIA) issues. The organization is made up of dedicated
volunteers who give their time, talent and money to fly three
POW-MIA hot air balloons at various events across America and the
world. Jim will discuss the activities of Freedom Flight and
