Marine Peyton Abbott on his Veteran Experience
Film Annex interviews Marine Peyton Abbott in Jacksonville, North Carolina about his experiences during his deployment in Afghanistan. The interview is part of the (G.I.V.E.) project Global Initiative for Veteran Entrepreneurship, a new initiative by Film Annex to re-introduce war veterans to society and help them make their business ideas a reality. To empower the veterans, Film Annex founder, Francesco Rulli, set out to interview each Marine about his time in war as well as what he expects from his future. In addition to the interviews, Film Annex offers Web TV channels to all veterans on its network, where they can broadcast their content and receive advertising revenues. (G.I.V.E.) advocates that the Afghan war veterans have the necessary skills and vision to be given distinct business opportunities due to their experience in the war, knowledge of different cultures, peace-keeping efforts, perseverance, supreme time management skills, and hard work.
