The aisle can bring us together, or the aisle can separate us.


The aisle is a path that can lead to a destination of connection and reconciliation. It is a clearing that is kept free of the clutter of confusion, dissension and hostility. And, it is an inviting opening to friend or foe alike where understanding is promoted, civility nourished, and harmonious relationships developed.


In these podcasts, we will explore just how the aisle has influenced our leaders and public servants; Republicans and Democrats, elected and appointed.


Join us in the Aisle where together we can deepen our understanding of the things that separate us, and explore how we can work together for the common good.

    Bob Taylor - Season 2, Episode 2

    Bob Taylor is a former Major in the US Air Force and B-52 navigator/radar navigator.  He flew eleven combat missions during Operation Desert Storm.  Bob returned home after his tour of duty thinking that he was unaffected by what he saw and did…then the nightmares started.  Embarrassed by his emotional struggles and thinking that he had not sacrificed enough for his country, Bob suffered in silence as many other veterans do.  He finally turned to the VA for help.

    Now, Bob Taylor wants to help veterans move beyond the nightmares and find the means to reach their full potential.  In this podcast episode, he shares insights from his new book, From Service to Success.  He discusses how it is critical for Veterans to become part of a new community, to forgive themselves, to develop healthy living styles, and to create a greater sense of themselves that will allow them to reach beyond just existing.
