About Steve Bussey
Steve Bussey is a Conservative talk radio host heard each and every Saturday afternoon from 2 to 4 PM in Brevard County, FL on WMEL A.M. 1300 (globally at 1300wmel.com)and a Conservative political activist, commentator and experienced blogger. He appeared regularly on the Bill Mick LIVE Radio Show heard weekdays from 6am to 9am WMMB A.M. 1240/1350 for two years and has been interviewed by radio stations in Seattle, Wa, Mississippi, Florida and Connecticut. Steve has had several guest editorials concerning local, state, national and international politics published in Florida Today newspaper in Brevard County, FL, and has been a guest speaker at several Tea Party and 9-12 Project events. But he hasn’t always been so good looking and talented.
Steve has been many-many things over the past 50+ years. He’s been a civilian and military cop, a special agent, undercover drug agent, tactical counterintelligence collector in the Philippines working against communist insurgents as they killed Americans and blew up American stuff; private investigator, medico-legal death investigator, sports official at every level from tee ball to Division II College, including baseball, fast pitch softball, football, men’s amateur baseball, and basketball.
Steve has been a convenience store clerk, laborer at a meat packing plant, unloaded rolls of insulation from railroad freight cars one summer, roofer, altar boy, actor, equipment operator and grunt for an overhead power line crew, probation officer, restaurant dish washer, occasional local delivery truck driver (whew), and a few more things.
So, why does Steve do all of this political stuff now? He does it because he has an undying and unyielding love of Country, and is embarrassed by what has become of the great gift left him by his ancestors.
In 1775 George, Thomas, Benjamin, William and Hezekiah Bussey answered Paul Revere’s warning, grabbed their muskets, and left farm and family to begin the struggle for freedom in the world. Today, struggle as he may, Steve Bussey endeavors to meet his ancestors’ expectations to care for that which they conceived in liberty and birthed by fire – to ensure the sacrifice of their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor shall not have been in vain.
The tradition of Bussey military service to this great Nation did not end with the great Revolution that shook the very foundations of the world. Another Hezekiah Bussey and others fought the British once again in the War of 1812. Over 100 men with the Bussey name fought, sometimes each other, during the Civil War.
As the story continues, James Madison Bussey, Steve’s great grandfather, joined the Texas Rangers around 1870 at the tender age of 17, and lived the life of which many men can only dream. His son, Steve’s great uncle John Travis Bussey, was felled by a German machine gun bullet in October, 1918 in the last major offensive of the War to end all wars – WW I, while his brother, Steve’s grandfather, Charlie Bussey, served as a wrangler with F-Troop, 12th Cavalry along the New Mexico border with Mexico. But even that wasn’t enough service for the Busseys.
Steve’s Uncle J.W. made three Pacific landings with the Marines, his Uncle Harold fought in Korea, his father, William Bussey, served in the Korean and Vietnam wars and continued on to serve 30 honorable years in the U.S. Navy. Steve’s brother fought in Desert Storm and his nephew served multiple tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, while his own son has recently served a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Steve?
Steve Bussey joined the United States Air Force on December 1, 1976, and retired on December 31, 1996 after 20 years of honorable service to his country in military law enforcement, and he doesn’t believe his oath of enlistment is moot simply because he retired, not with his family history and tradition to live up to. And so, Steve Bussey fights on for the Constitution, for the truth, and for our posterity.
