Kert makes a new video for the USS IOWA
If you follow my blog you'll already know my KHS69 brother Kert is a film maker & editor in Burbank, CA. He has been filming the story of the moving, refurbishing and opening of the USS IOWA at San Pedro, CA. She was opened to the public this week and he's now made a new video which will be used as a promo to obtain more publicity for the project. If you're in the LA area, be sure to go tour the ship! The photography on this video is spectacular; if you've watched before, you'll see this is in part a compilation of earlier video with the story updated. It's 6:11 minutes long, but watch the clock, at 5:53 you will see a split second shot of his handsome face! ENJOY

May John rest in peace and love.
