On this episode of Strawberry Flag Radio: Joining us for a very special conversation is Congressman Bob Filner, Chairman Committee on Veterans' Affairs in the United States House of Representatives. He answers some of our questions regarding the underused VA campus and exploding population of homeless vets. We get an update from Metabolic Studio Project Manager Rich Nielsen and join in the first "Jam Session," where veterans and Studio staff get together to make strawberry preserves. We hear from two vets this week as well. Mike Vest--veteran of US Marines, and Sherry Geeting--Veteran US Army and one of the few female soldiers to have served in Vietnam. She's got quite a tale to tell. The sprawling campus that houses Strawberry Flag is a favorite location for film and TV shows. George Larson, Location manager for Grey's Anatomy, explains the pros and cons of shooting at the VA campus.
