The Power of Story

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Most of us have experienced the power of storytelling. We remember, catalogue, and relate our lives through story.

In the making, sharing, and viewing of BRAVO! COMMON MEN, UNCOMMON VALOR, we all learned a lot about war, combat, warriors, and post-combat issues. We also learned the healing power of film.

Now, Betty, our team, and I are in the final stages of sharing another story, that of wives of combat veterans. Stories that those of us who have experienced war know, but are little known outside the veteran population.

We want to share these stories and we need your help to get them out to the world. Interviewing for this film has been therapeutic for the women who are featured. Their openness and candor will be helpful to spouses everywhere who feel alone, who think there is no help for them and their families.

The photo below is of the eleven wives of I MARRIED THE WAR.

Today, we have launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign and we need your help to finish and share these stories of the wives of combat veterans from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Join this effort by contributing today, or if you cannot donate right now, please share this information about our campaign with your family, friends and colleagues.

Together, we can get these stories out to the world!


  1. On 15 March 1968, I was in Da Nang, MASS-3 Direct Air Support Center, attached to 1st Mar Div. That day at Khe Sahn, a round from Co Roc struck the DASC bunker, wounding three Marines in my unit.. I was ordered to get my gear and proceed to Khe Sahn. I arrived late that afternoon and found my way to our bunker, directly across the road behind Bravo 1/26. The first information I was given concerning the tactical situation was about 2/B 1/26.
    Those Marines memory have haunted me from that day to this. I have always regretted that my DASC was not given a request to provide an AO,at least, for air cover for that ill fated patrol. No blame cast, just my thoughts of what might and could have been.
    With utmost respect,
