Memorial Day

Posted in Uncategorized on May 25, 2009 by Adam Housley

As a child growing up, Memorial Day took on a special meaning. In my hometown of Yountville, the Veteran’s Home of California sits perched half way up a hillside, overlooking a million dollar view of the Napa Valley. Every Memorial Day weekend at “the Home” as we called it, baseball teams from around Northern California came for the annual tournament. The vets would pack the stands and the flags would line the streets and buildings. It will always be so fresh in my mind. What could be more American, playing baseball for friends, family and those that fought so I could afford such luxury. These are photo’s I have taken around the globe that remind me of how lucky we are to be American. Take a moment today at your BBQ or party, a think of those who have given their lives for us.

“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”
–Arthur Ashe


Should He Get Chemo?

We have been covering this story for a couple of days now out of the Los Angeles office because authorities believe he and his mother may in fact be here in Southern California. 13-year-old Daniel Hauser is suffering from cancer and is on the run with his mother Colleen. Most ethicists say children and young teens don’t have the mental capacity to understand the severity of something like Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which doctors say will kill Daniel if he doesn’t undergo chemotherapy treatment. They may be en route at some point to Mexico to a “natural treatment type of facility.” We will continue to follow this ethical and legal debate. What do you think?

Here is some video of our work behind the scenes with one of the contenders for the new MRAP vehicle. This one is called the MATV and made by Oshkosh. The crew was fantastic on all sides of this story and the high desert was dramatic as ever.
