This is a video I did about 11 years ago while working for the Virginian-Pilot and HamptonRoads.tv in Norfolk, Va.
An amazing friend and musician Todd “Tones” Jones produced and played on the track. He’s an amazing guitarist as you will hear. When I first heard this track, I immediately knew I had to create a Memorial Day tribute video. I filmed all the locations throughout the entire Hampton Roads area. (this was pre-HD, sorry) Please enjoy and share!
ARMY, NAVY, AIRFORCE, MARINES, COAST GUARD, NATIONAL GUARD…..THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE
What a ball! On Saturday morning men and women from the United States Navy joined forces with some young and eager kickball stars from Rockport. The results were a mad game of Kickball! The Midshipmen (trust me when I say I did some research to figure out the correct terms to use for these awesome men and women…but, since they were out of uniform, I’m at a loss) were unbelievable with the kids and, while the game was competitive, it was also hysterical to watch. Children 6 years old and older were welcome to register in advance for the opportunity to play with and against the Navy. At the end of the game they game some younger children (including the Finnster) a chance to kick and run the bases as well.
Thanks to all of those involved! Lasting memories for these young kids for sure.
