Ken Wilson was a Marine 1stLt/Captain, Combat Engineer in Vietnam in the 1965-1966 time-frame.  Ken fought the Viet Cong initially and later the NVA as they infiltrated the area around the Marine Base at Da Nang.

Was leadership different in Vietnam?  Were drugs, ears, scalps, civilian casualties and rape part of the environment Ken led in?  Ken Wilson says it’s always about one thing — LEADERSHIP.

Listen to a fantastic interview about Ken’s life of leading in the Marine Corps and then leading at Turner Construction where he worked for 38 years before he retired in 2002.

 

CROSSROADS: Matt Morgan and Jerry Judge… two combat vets, a microphone and a war story

 

Matt Morgan
LtCol USMC (ret)
Producer, “The Unknown Flag Raiser of Iwo Jima”

“Inspired by Sebastian Junger’s  call for combat veterans to share their experiences with all Americans, Matt Morgan set out to create an environment where vets would feel comfortable doing just that. He knew that the combat experience wasn’t the kind of thing you presented in a TED Talk, and while books like Redeployed or A Rumor of War have become classics, very few vets truly ever feel their time in uniform was so unique that they should write a memoir.  Yet, every combat vet has a story, and in most cases, if asked, they’d share it with a fellow vet. That’s how Crossroads was born. It’s two vets talking war stories. There just happens to be a mic there. So you can listen in.”
