Biscayne National Park

Biscayne National Park2


Our country’s 59 national parks are famous for all sorts of amazing ecological and geological edifices, formations, features and landscapes. And usually of a rocky, canyon, mountainous, prairie and sandstone kind. But one of our magnificent national parks is quite aquatic and harboring a wondrous watery world!

Biscayne National Park, located in southern Florida and just south of Miami, preserves Biscayne Bay and its offshore barrier reefs. Unbelievably, 95 percent of the park is water, and the shore of the bay is the location of an extensive mangrove forest. The park covers 172,971 acres (69,999 ha) and includes Elliott Key, the park’s largest island and first of the true Florida Keys, formed from fossilized coral reef. The islands farther north in the park are transitional islands of coral and sand. The offshore portion of the park includes the northernmost region of the Florida Reef, one of the largest coral reefs in the world.

Biscayne National Park actually consists of four interrelated marine ecosystems: mangrove forest, the Bay, the Keys, and the coral reefs. Threatened animals include the West Indian manatee, American crocodile, various sea turtles, and the peregrine falcon. You can be sure when the 59 VETERANS PROJECTS is visiting this watery world, along with veterans we’ll be teaching 4K and VR videograhy and photography we will definitely have plenty of watercraft, surfboards, and our fins and scuba gear with us!

We can’t wait to be sharing the company of our military veterans along this watery trail and many others…as we ascend the summit together!

Mesa Verde
The 59 VETERANS PROJECT continues to gear up to implement our lofty enterprise to teach and create jobs for our military veterans in the fine art and craft of 4K and VR photography and videography where together we will be filming stunning records of our 59 national parks.
Speaking of our national parks, one we can’t wait to visit and share with veterans (which is obviously Colorado’s most incredible tourist site!) is Mesa Verde National Park.
Mesa Verde is unlike any other national park, constituting over 4,000 archaeological sites of the Ancestral Puebloan people, who lived there for at least 700 years. Cliff dwellings built in the 12th and 13th centuries include the famous Cliff Palace, which has 150 rooms and 23 kivas, and the Balcony House, with its many passages and tunnels.
Established on June 29, 1906, by President Theodore Roosevelt himself, and occupying 52,485 acres (21,240 ha) near the Four Corners region of the American Southwest, Mesa Verde National Park host some of the most rugged terrain in the country, especially for biking and hiking enthusiasts. But its some 600 cliff dwellings where the Ancestral Puebloan people once lived is a sight every American should experience!

On the movie set with Jeffrey Hunter, Vic Damone, David Janssen
Without a doubt, World War II had more acts of bravery, Medals of Honor awarded, and more incredible exploits and stories to tell than any other war or conflict in U.S. history. Case in point: Guy Gabaldon, U.S. Marine.
Guy, who at a very young age became parentless and was adopted by a Japanese-American family (and learned to read, write and speak perfect Japanese), became a Marine when the Second World War broke out. But what he did in that war is utterly astonishing!
At the mere age of 18, Guy Gabaldon captured (or persuaded to surrender) roughly 1,500 Japanese soldiers and civilians during the Battles of Saipan and Tinian (1944). For these actions, he was nominated for the Medal of Honor, but was instead awarded the Silver Star, which was later upgraded to the Navy Cross Medal. His exploits were the basis for the 1960 Hollywood film Hell to Eternity. His friends called him Gabby, but he remained a Marine’s Marine to all his fellow Leathernecks until his death in 2006.
The movie, starring Jeffrey Hunter, is a great one, and all of us here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT recommend you catch it when you can; and Guy’s autobiography, “Saipan: Suicide Island.”

“The first night I was on Saipan, I went out on my own…I always worked on my own, and brought back two prisoners using my backstreet Japanese.” –Guy Gabaldon
