When you’re active in the Veteran community, you tend to hear names repeated in conversation and mentioned on social media. Recently, one of those names is Skye Marshall. I saw Skye in Got Your 6’s #shesbadass campaign and knew she’d make a great feature on the podcast. Skye talks with us about serving in the Air Force, following her dreams to Hollywood, working with Al Pacino, and more.

About Skye:

At the age of 19, Skye enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and was stationed at Nellis AFB, Las Vegas, NV. In Las Vegas, she heeded her true calling when she beat more than 8,000 college students from across the U.S. to be apart of the principal cast in the New Line Cinema feature film “The Real Cancun.” Skye made her national movie theater debut Spring 2003. Although the film offered her many opportunities to fulfill her ultimate dream of being a full-time actress, Skye was determined to finish her goal of earning a college degree.
Skye graduated with honors in May 2007 earning a Bachelor of Arts in Communication, Media & Theatre (CMT Program) from Northeastern IL University. Following her graduation, Skye moved to New York City. While working corporate during the day, in the evenings she attended acting training at Stella Adler Studio along with dance classes at The Broadway Dance Center to fine tune her skills and better prepare herself for the big move from NYC to LA October 2009.

    I am a veteran in my seventh year of fighting with the Phoenix VA Benefits in AZ. My case is now filled with so many of what I am alleging as diliberate oversight, harassment, and tactical delays that it is no surprise of the latest error(April 10th 2017) of closing my pending claims, but once again not addressing them. My last NOD just went missing, the excuse? I just have so much information in the system…”guess that’s my fault.
    When did all this start? Once I reached out to higher chains of command to include the previous Sec. of the VA, and previous President, with names of individuals, including supervisors, whom I spoke to regarding mistakes on my claim decisions.
    Is there an agency that provides oversight over VA Benefits that can look into this matter quickly?
    I am so close to taking matters into my own hands… because NOBODY is listening!!!!! Please help..

    I am a Vet too. Most of us need dental work done, yet are not 100% service connected. We all need to address this matter.
