(CHILI INGREDIENT BELOW)
A couple of decades ago, I left the corporate grind and tried my hand at making video productions. An appreciation of veterans and their stories led me to my initial efforts, with a documentary film about the sad fate of the US Asiatic Fleet early in World War II. In particular the film focused on the story of the USS Houston (CA-30). It became a lifelong passion to interview veterans and capture some of their peculiar insight to the human condition as it relates to war. Maybe it helps that I too am a veteran.
