Big Weekly Blend Magazine – Vol. 1, Issue 18, Nov. 2023



“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”
Arthur Ashe


This issue honors the sacrifice of America’s soldiers with travel writer Debbie Stone’s article about her visit to Gettysburg National Military Park, and award-winning author, historian, and army veteran Mike Guardia’s podcast conversation covering Veterans Day and Thanksgiving military history.
