Jason and his team interviewed 22 local American wartime veterans, representing four branches of the military. They spoke with veterans from all major military conflicts since WWI and military milestones like D-Day and the Tet Offensive. Interviewees included authors Nelson DeMille and Phil Klay, as well as actor J.R. Martinez, and they received letters of support from Colin Powell, Gary Sinise, and Ken Burns.
The team also submitted these interviews to the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project.
