OSU Tour Pentagon Event
tour was welcomed with open arms from the top officials at the Pentagon. We
entertained our audience there with world-class style that consisted of
Hollywood Actor Stephen Baldwin our Emcee and speaker for the event, Bob
Whitcomb/comedian/strongest juggler in the world, Natalie Grant/2006 and 2007
GMA female vocalist of the year/concert, and myself, Jonathan Spinks /
Undefeated Extreme Fighter & Kickboxer. We were blessed to be encouraged by the
top officials at the Pentagon to exercise our right to “freedom of speech”. One
of the very rights our soldiers fight for. We were indeed allowed the
opportunity to deliver a crystal-clear gospel presentation and invitation upon
which many attendees acted upon. We received rave reviews from everyone that
attended our show including many Generals as they encouraged us stating “we
needed your shows in front of every single soldier we have”. (All names are
being withheld in respect of the privacy and/or organizations that fight
separation of church and state issues.) We must mention that although we
received rave reviews at our show, clearly, we have many enemies outside the
Pentagon that have never been to our shows. Because of these organizations,
weeks following our show at the Pentagon, our website received 377,000 hits.
Most of which bombarded our headquarters with threats and extreme hate emails.
Language so filthy Lucifer himself would be proud. Enemies in sheep’s clothing
that disguise themselves as protectors of “military religious freedom” but are
distinctly savagely against Jesus Christ and denounce him profusely in private
but resourcefully in public. A man (Jesus Christ), I might mention, that has
produced more peace on earth, than any other person on Earth. Not hate! The very
calendar we live by was set in place by this man’s life and death. Dan Rather’s
office contacted the OSU Tour headquarters on almost a daily basis seeking
interviews for a controversial show to boost his own show's ratings. Which we
refused I might add, but was aired without our input regardless. Our supporters
were assured that, to do something that brings this kind of response from the
enemies of Christians, we must be headed in the right direction. The truth is,
all we seek to do is help our armed forces get answers to divorce, suicide, PTSD,
addictions, and the like, so they can live the life they have only dreamed
about. Something every American citizen should be for, not against. Answers to
their habits, hurts and hang-ups, that produce better fathers to their children,
better husbands and wives to their spouses, a better soldier in the foxhole, and
a better life for all! We press on!
OSU Tour was invited for a private meeting with officials at the Pentagon on
October 8, 2005 and a 2nd meeting on October10, 2005 to discuss the functions of
our events and our organization. The officials we met with had an overwhelming
response of support (although could not give an official endorsement by the DoD)
and committed to help with the future success of the OSU Tour organization.
At this meeting we were also invited to perform our shows at The Pentagon.
Performance dates are not yet official as we work on the scheduling of this
event and including military bases around Washington, D.C. Below were a few pictures
that were taken at the Pentagon on our visit.
Our promise to The Pentagon was to enhance military members quality of life
by providing “Live Entertainment” with a distinct purpose in mind. Designed to
touch the heart and soul of men and women where they need it the most, at home.
We encourage commitment in marriages, quality in fatherhood, and covenant in
relationships. We confront issues like divorce, drugs, and uncontrolled anger
that are harmful to a quality form of life. We feel this produces stability in
their family life and a greater peace within the families of all operatives. Our
plan is not to tame the army down but to empower it in another dimension. If we
can relieve stress at home, we can produce a more concrete and stable operative
About The Pentagon
headquarters of the Department of Defense, is one of the world's largest office
buildings. It is twice the size of the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, and has
three times the floor space of the Empire State Building in New York. The
National Capitol could fit into any one of the five wedge-shaped sections. There
are very few people throughout the United States who do not have some knowledge
of the Pentagon. Many have followed news stories emanating from the defense
establishment housed in this building. However, relatively few people have had
the opportunity to visit The Pentagon.
The Pentagon is virtually a city in itself. Approximately 23,000 employees,
both military and civilian, contribute to the planning and execution of the
defense of our country. These people arrive daily from Washington, D.C. and its
suburbs over approximately 30 miles of access highways, including express bus
lanes and one of the newest subway systems in our country. They ride past 200
acres of lawn to park approximately 8,770 cars in 16 parking lots; climb 131
stairways or ride 19 escalators to reach offices that occupy 3,705,793 square
feet. While in the building, they tell time by 4,200 clocks, drink from 691
water fountains, utilize 284 rest rooms, consume 4,500 cups of coffee, 1,700
pints of milk and 6,800 soft drinks prepared or served by a restaurant staff of
230 persons and dispensed in 1 dining room, 2 cafeterias, 6 snack bars, and an
outdoor snack bar. The restaurant service is a privately run civilian operation
under contract to the Pentagon.
Over 200,000 telephone calls are made daily through phones connected by
100,000 miles of telephone cable. The Defense Post Office handles about
1,200,000 pieces of mail monthly. Various libraries support our personnel in
research and completion of their work. The Army Library alone provides 300,000
publications and 1,700 periodicals in various languages.
Stripped of its occupants, furniture and various decorations, the building
alone is an extraordinary structure. Built during the early years of World War
II, it is still thought of as one of the most efficient office buildings in the
world. Despite 17.5 miles of corridors it takes only seven minutes to walk
between any two points in the building.
The original site was nothing more than wasteland, swamps and dumps. 5.5
million cubic yards of earth, and 41,492 concrete piles contributed to the
foundation of the building. Additionally, 680,000 tons of sand and gravel,
dredged from the nearby Potomac River, were processed into 435,000 cubic yards
of concrete and molded into the Pentagon form. The building was constructed in
the remarkably short time of 16 months and completed on January 15, 1943 at an
approximate cost of $83 million. It consolidated 17 buildings of the War
Department and returned its investment within seven years.
