A little about Veteran, Entrepreneur, and Inventor Joe Meisch:
"Seven (7) Years after my ETS and 13yrs as a 12B and 62J I found himself in the proverbial Hollywood Ca working with a premiere TV executive producer Michael Weinburg pitching a show that I had written.
I had a couple of agents one at premiere William Morris agency and the last was Annete Van Duren of Van Duren Agency, writing material on Sony studio lot and I was hanging out with "industry people" at parties and working at coffee shops.
I ended up getting a pitch to Comedy Central and an offer from Spike TV. Wow my first offer on my first product and here I am. I had many things to consider, one of them was an idea I was chasing that could help myself and others.
Then my former supervisor SFC Micheal Ottolini was KIA in Iraq, I went to his funeral and that triggered a distant memory that roared back to me. As a 20 year old PVT in the Army reserve I could not save PVT Young from drowning. Micheals death richoced through my life at the same time I had to make a decision on what to pursue as a career. I had an offer from Spike TV and a budding career in comedy, my god I was so happy and enthusiastic, then I walked away from it. Why? Because I could not handle it all and I felt a calling to serve others through my device in honor of PVT Young and SFC Ottolini. A chance to be part of something bigger than myself was attractive since I had lost that when I exited the military.
I walked away to help service members and veterans in honor of two men I served with that gave all, it immediately became very clear that I made the right decision." - Joe Meisch
