HOLLYWOOD HISTORY AT THE WEST LA VA MEDICAL CENTER

Postby Jim Kerkhoff » Thu Sep 08, 2011 1:12 pm

Several months ago I was out in LA working on segments for the TV program I executive produce, "The American Veteran," which deals with -- you guessed it -- issues of interest to our nation's Vets. I shot a story with Brent Walker at the West LA VA Medical Center about its history as a filming location in the early days of Hollywood which is now on YouTube. If you're interested here's the link ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbVin7Sls9o

Kudos to Jim and Brent - you both did a great job. I really enjoyed it - although black-hearted individual that I am I was hoping you'd use the shot from BLOCKHEADS where Stan's sitting in the wheelchair and scratches his "stump."

Each month we edit each story down to streamline it for YouTube. Brent made mention of Block-Heads but that section was trimmed out of the original. The full segment can be viewed by going to The Pentagon Channel's website at www.pentagonchannel.mil On the bottom left you'll see a menu. Click on "The American Veteran." It's the August edition.
