The similarities are striking - we've been in this place before. The past echoes in my brain and I feel as if I am sitting in my living room the day after Christmas in 2004.
When we find ourselves saying, "uh-oh, he must be dangerous, he's ex-military," let's catch ourselves and realize that if the veteran is dangerous, he is dangerous for us, not against us.
Dachau's liberation story is not hypothetical to me. What this soldier saw when he opened the gates of Dachau was a sea of corpses, emaciated, tossed one atop the other in obscene piles. A few skeletons emerged alive, however, and one of them was my own father.
I’d like to pay tribute to all veterans by telling you the story of three people – a boy who lost his dad on 9/11, an Army helicopter pilo...

With this one tireless Marine leading the charge and now shifting the focus of the effort to addressing the alarming rise in PTSD, this Veteran's Day I wanted to sit down with Captain Bunch and ask him to reflect on the lessons learned and where OOA goes from here.
CO-Executive Producer Paul Bernard immediately knew what Jefferies wanted and after a quick conversation with Peter O'Fallon, Co-Creator and Executive Producer/Director, the two came up with the unthinkable -- put real veterans who served abroad on the show.
