“National Native American Code Talkers Day” – August 14th
CODE TALKERS: From over 40 Native American Nations, Code Talkers made all the difference during WW1 and WW2, using Native Language to transmit important messages in a Code that was never broken. The following video is perspective from the words of Larry Montoya, a Marine from the Hopi Nation. He discovered in the process of working with me on the development of this short video, that he had two blood-line and three additional clan-line uncles who served as Code Talkers. I narrate and sing in this mini-documentary while many of the images are from Larry’s family or from public records.

Serve and Protect : Stories From WWII
Vietnam: Service, Sacrifice, and Courage
Prisoners of War: Stolen Freedom
Prisoners of War: Stolen Freedom compares the stories of four American servicemen through their time as prisoners of war in three major 20th century conflicts; World War II, Korea and the Vietnam war. Their stories are supported by archival motion pictures and photographs obtained at the US National Archives as well as through sketches and memorabilia collected by each of the men. Their stories are less about atrocity than they are about the survival of the human spirit and the camaraderie that helped each man survive years of incarceration. Each story is followed by spectacular recounts of their days of release. Produced by Michael Rothfeld, Bill Dudley and the Veterans Council of St. Johns County, directed by Eric Flagg
