Raw Feed videos - willing to give to interested Gulf War org

Post by Irwin A. Connelly » Wed Oct 06, 2010 7:12 pm

Hello. Back during Desert Shield and Desert Storm my wife and I lived in Florida and had one of those big satellite dishes. We were able to get raw news feeds and we captured some 100 plus hours of feeds from the front. They include raw footage of pool news organizations spending hours with various units during the lead up to and during the war. They would spend 6 or so hours with a unit, and then show 15 seconds of the six hours, if at all, later on one of the network news shows.

One of the most memorable segments is a day the TV folks spent with Maj. Marie Rossi Cayton, just before her tragic death. From the feed one can see what an amazingly competent and gifted person she was.

Anyway, I've retired recently and am cleaning out old closets. I would be happy to send the 18 full video cassettes of the raw feeds to this organization or anyone interested in the history of those days. The units covered include all armed forces. If you are interested I would be happy to send them at my expense in the hopes they will be of use to you interested in the events.

My email address is newconlaw@aol.com.

Thanks.

Irwin

Hello. We've gotten several requests already. So, my wife and I decided we'd go ahead and transfer the tapes to DVD's. If there are too many more requests we'll make copies and send them on request. I hope someone will have the patience to look at them and catlogue them by unit covered. Then those segments could perhaps be sent to the respective units' historian.

Thanks for the interest - we should be sending out the DVD's in a couple of weeks.

In my last post I said "...if there are too many requests..." I meant to say if there "aren't" too many requests...
In any event, we'll start transferring to DVD and try to get everyone a copy.
