Camp Roberts—located on the San Luis Obispo/Monterey county line—was America’s largest Army training base during World War II. Close to half a million infantry and artillery troops went through basic training at the base during the war.

The United States Army’s Fort Hunter Liggett in Monterey County is larger than all of the other Army Reserve’s training installations combined, and the U.S. Army’s seventh largest training facility in geographic area.

Brandon Demchak enlisted in the U.S. Army at 21 and was deployed twice before being honorably discharged in 2015. Demchak returned home, like many veterans, with a "noise in his head" that haunted his days and nights. He was soon diagnosed as PTSD. His journey to healing led to discovering a gift for film and storytelling. Today, Brandon is dedicated to bringing a message of hope and awareness to fellow veterans and civilians through the big screen.
