If you don't like the song, you can turn the sound off and just watch the gorgeous girls on roller skates.

Tom C, the best place to start is the National Archives. I'll post a link on your profile page to the form you need to fill out to request copies of his files.

Harold, if you can, snail mail me a copy and I'll see if I can put it on YouTube.

Harold, glad your movie was a big hit!

There are free file conversion programs you can install on your computer but you never know what kind of other crap they are installing also.

Harry, Windows movie maker allows you to burn it to a DVD.

I proofed with my DVD  player on the TV set.  It was magnificent.

They have a professional DVD and Sound system in our theater so they put on the movie screen.

They applauded me so long and loud.

Harold, are you able to make a copy of your video to DVD? By what means did you show the video? Are you able to e-mail it to me?

Toujours Pret, 

My movie was a total success,  I had a a lot of teary eyed people with the symbolism.  They invited me into the Veterans Committee so I will be doing a stronger one for Memorial Day and I do not know about December 7.

I wish I could post the move.  If I get it onto you tube then we all can see it again

God bless those that have served and God bless those that are serving now and God bless all that have served with the 2nd ACR
