Come Visit Wrangell-St. Elias National Park with the 59 Veterans!


Breathtakingly scenic, rugged and nature-epic as any place in the world can be, established on December 2, 1980 and consisting of over 8 million acres of terrain, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park in Alaska is the largest of all America’s 59 national parks.

The giant reserve protects the convergence of the Alaska, Chugach and Wrangell-Saint Elias Ranges that include many of the continent’s tallest mountains and volcanoes, including 18,008-foot Mount Saint Elias. More than a quarter of the park is covered with glaciers, including the tidewater Hubbard Glacier, piedmont Malaspina Glacier and the valley Nabesna Glacier.

If you love mountainous territory and hiking, climbing, fishing, skiing and a host of other rugged outdoor activities, Wrangell-St. Elias National Park is for you!
It’s also for us, and we can’t wait to be experiencing it with military veterans we will be preparing for a career in 4K ultra high-definition and virtual reality videography. To learn more about this park, visit:

To learn about us, the 59 Veterans, we hope to hear from you at and will join us as we ascend this summit together!

The 59 Vets Salutes the U.S. Army!



What began in 1775 as the Continental Army has become the strongest, best-equipped, best-trained, bravest and fightingest fighting force in the world: the U.S. Army!

From the hallowed precincts of Bunker Hill, Trenton and Yorktown to the battlefields of Gettysburg, Spotsylvania, Meuse-Argonne, Anzio, Normandy, Pusan Perimeter, Tet Offensive and throughout Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. Army has served our country with valor, duty and incredible sacrifice for 244 years. It is June, so it is our honor to give a shout-out to our nation’s largest military branch and commemorate the 244th Anniversary of the U.S. Army.

Hand salute!

Sgt Al’s Fundraiser for His Podcast 


My Sgt Al readers, I need your help.

I’m about to launch a nationally syndicated podcast with 99% market saturation, but I need to cover the production costs until I can get sponsors. I need donations to cover those costs up to $15,000. Any amount will do.

Please, this is a great opportunity for me to help even more people as we head down this road on our journey toward the Electric Car Revolution, so don’t let this movement slip by. Thank you for your consideration.

The Past

Sometimes the thing that keeps coming back never left in the first place, though you had to forever let it go.



You never have to forget the past.
You never have to regret the loss.
Pain and grief do not forever last,
Any more than a stone gathers moss.
Doesn’t matter where the road has led.
Doesn’t matter what was never said.
(Nor why your heart lies empty and dead!)
You don’t stop loving someone when they fail to try.
You don’t stop loving someone when they say goodbye.

Eschew all those who skulk around you

Ordering you how and what to feel,
Trying to harden and unbound you,
Claiming the past is lost and not real.
No, embrace the sorrow and regret.
Never let the world make you forget.
(Nor the soul of love you sought and met!)
You don’t stop loving someone when they say goodbye.
You don’t stop loving someone just because they die.
And if you like this poetry, you just might also like this poetry:

The U.S. Coast Guard at Normandy, June 6, 1944!



As a follow-up to our recent D-Day 75th Anniversary post, all of us here at the 59 Veterans Project want to give a shout-out to the United States Coast Guard. Many do not know it, but the U.S. Coast Guard played a huge, critical role on June 6, 1944, in the five beach landings at Normandy, France.

In fact, the Coast Guard provided 99 ships consisting of manned warships, landing craft and cutters to the Normandy landings. Four of those landing craft were lost at Omaha Beach that day: LCI(L)s 85 (pictured here), 91, 92 and 93. Plus, over 55 cutters were present during the entire invasion serving as search and rescue craft. They saved hundreds of lives and lost many of their own during this most critical of all WWII battles.

As for the United States Coast Guard, WE SALUTE YOU!
