I Was Discovered On a Boat In the Bering Sea

Wear it Right! Army Uniform Tool

“Hide not your talents.  They for use were made.  What’s a sundial in the shade?”

-Benjamin Franklin

We all have a talent, something we enjoy doing so much that it rarely, if ever, feels like work.  Matter of fact, you probably enjoy doing so much that you even do it for free.  That is usually why we tend to think it doesn’t qualify as something worth bringing to the attention of our commanding officer.  It could be a special ability like that for sculpting, painting, lettering, a knack for numbers, public speaking, music, or even magic.  If you have a gift or talent that you feel can benefit others in anyway, whether they are military personnel or not, it is worth presenting to your C.O.  You may be amazed at how well it is received, appreciated, respected and if utilized benefits your entire unit.

Darrell Fusaro is an artist, keynote speaker, U.S. Coast Guard Veteran, and the co-host of Funniest Thing! with Darrell and Ed on Unity Online Radio. Throughout his colorful life in the arts and entertainment industry Fusaro has stepped out optimistically from one adventure to the next. He has exhibited with Andy Warhol; worked as a Hollywood stunt coordinator on the blockbuster, Con Air; acted in numerous commercials; and was a producer of the Emmy-nominated Local Edition on CNN. Having stumbled aimlessly through his early life, he served in the Bering Sea before being chosen as the sole Coast Guard member assigned to HASP (Hawaii Armed Services Police). The remainder of his enlistment was served as a member of this joint military law enforcement task force. It was during this time that he was sent to Pearl Harbor for rehabilitation training. There he was introduced to metaphysical laws and the practical application of spiritual principles. This knowledge brought radical success in every aspect of Darrell’s life. He was awarded the Army Commendation Medal by the Secretary of the Army for personally bringing about superior relationships between the military and the civilian law enforcement community. Articles on Darrell Fusaro’s artistic adventures have been covered in dozens of programs and publications from The New York Times to American Artist Magazine, LA Weekly to L’Italo Americano (Italian), Military Times to Cinefex Magazine, and SoCal News to CNN. He is also featured as an artist and filmmaker in the following books; “The Documentary Moviemaking Course: The Starter Guide to Documentary Filmmaking” By Kevin J. Lindenmuth, “Pastel School: A Practical Guide to Painting and Drawing with Pastels” By Hazel Harrison, and “How to Get Hung A Practical Guide for Emerging Artists” By Molly Barnes. Each week on his Funniest Thing! with Darrell and Ed radio show, his personal stories inspire and entertain a global audience. In his new book, What If Godzilla Just Wanted a Hug?, Darrell has packed his experience into easy-to-digest, bite-sized stories encouraging the talented and timid to trust their gut, act on intuition, and step out boldly.
