Here's Sam's Heart - 2008


  Sam, May, 2010

A Brief Comment about the early Past:

Sam Dehne (pron: DNA) graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in 1962. He spent 5 years flying B-52 bombers in the Air Force before becoming a pilot with Pan American World Airways in 1967; while also flying RF-101 and RF-4 fighters in the Nevada Air National Guard.
It appeared Sam's destiny had arrived. (No more resumés required...)
But alas, Pan Am was "blown" out of business in late 1991 after the dastardly terrorist bombing of flight 103 over Lockerbie in 1989. 
Sam's flying career came to an end shortly after the horrific and sad demise of America's beloved Pan Am.
Sam, serendipitously, began to discover his new "calling"... Citizen Watchdog.

As a self-reliant individual, Sam has been blessed with the good fortune to be able to focus on the things he considers to be important. He does not plan to deviate from what he believes.  Right or wrong... they are HIS beliefs. 

His work ethic and investigatory and writing skills can be found ubiquitously in the internet magazine that he created and has published for over 10 years. The Reno Citizen magazine is a non-profit (and non-salaried) publication dedicated to the betterment of mankind... especially in Reno, Nevada.  Furthermore, Sam holds all the national records for official Public Testimonies (click) at myriad  government meetings.

Reno was so scared of Sam's Truth that they eventually shut his Patriotic TV show down.
But Sam replaced that with Youtube (click)

Some of Sam's Music (click)



The Too Wild Yankees! Band ...
puts the "D" in Dance
... with high-fallutin' rootin' tootin' singalong numbers that have a rockabilly sound all their own... like NOBODY else ever. From the unique semi-twang vocal-stylings of lead singer and guitar player "Singing" Sammy to the equally talented heart-throbbing beat of Tommy "The Tuneman's" harmonica, whistling, and drum sticks... you will hear more old-timey Americana songs in 45 minutes than you ever dreamed possible. These two entertainment virtuosos take the audience on a ride from Country... to Rock n Roll... to Patriotic... to Sunday Go to Meeting songs... that literally force young and old audiences to sing along, tap their toes, and twiddle their fingers
