Hail to the Chief with Tom Watson: 31st President Herbert Hoover

Tom Watson is here at Blue Water Healthy Living for the next segment of his show, Hail to the Chief.

On today’s episode of Hail To The Chief, Tom Watson and his bobblehead, Thomas Jefferson, give a pictorial biography on the life and times of our 31st President, Herbert Hoover.  Did you know that he was actually born in a two room shack?  That he was orphaned by age 9?  That he was the first President to be inaugurated on sound film?    Also find out what he built during the depression as Mr. Watson and TJ take us on a visual journey of Herbert Hoover.

What is Hail to the Chief you may ask? Well, Hail to Chief is a show that will follow Tom’s story of traveling all over the US to visit locations of importance for all 46 United States Presidents. Always along for the ride with him is his bobblehead of Thomas Jefferson, and Tom gives the perspective of his travels through the eyes of this famous founding father. This can be seen in full display on his blog, “Through the Eyes of Jefferson”.

Christopher Columbus, Sir Edmund Hillary, Lewis and Clark, Tom and Bob!
I knew that if we survived the hike that we would have quite a tale to tell. Thanks to your blog and this video, the harrowing experiences of that day will be remembered and talked about as long as humans survive.
It will also be a day that will live in infamy, as several employees of the National Park Service ignored your reasonable request for assistance when it would have only taken a few minutes of their time, and they did not appear to be doing anything else at the time.
I enjoyed the whole video, and as always, I learned a lot about history as well.

I loved the circling buzzards at the end! Thankfully, they did not get an all-you-can-eat meal on that day on the trail to Rapidan!

Thanks for your kind words at the end of the video. We are a team and we will both achieve glory together, or crash and burn together!
