    I worked on the JACKIE movie, starring Natalie Portman. Many hours of research was done to ensure accuracy and authenticity, that was my commitment to honor those who serve and the families. As a 32 year Army Veteran, I knew the best way to achieve accuracy and authenticity was by using the real assets from JFK’s funeral. I was able to facilitate the necessary contracts with the Office of the Chief of Public Affairs (OCPA) in LA and secured all assets from the 3rd US Infantry (Old Guard) for the movie. I’ve been wanting your book Black Jack since I saw it at the Caisson Platoon.

    I would appreciate your assistance in getting a copy of the book.
