World War II was a truly global conflict, running 24/7 across every time zone. However, for all the attention given to it in history books, magazines, films and television, the European Theater of Operations was only a fraction of the size physically of the war being fought in the Pacific Theater. Encompassing almost half the world's landmass, the Pacific Theater necessarily had to be broken into pieces, and prosecuted by a number of separate commands and commanders. The South Pacific was just one big part of this effort, and yet had multiple commanders directing operations from Guadalcanal to Okinawa before the war ended. Some of the greatest names in American military history, commanded these operations including Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Adm. Chester Nimitz, Adm. William F. "Bull" Halsey, and Gen. "Howl'in Mad" Smith. Incredibly, the Allied victory over the Japanese was completed in just under four years from the attack on Pearl Harbor. But perhaps most amazing was that it was accomplished in spite of one of the worst collection of military egomaniacs and narcissists being in control of much of the drive towards Japan. Add to this the debilitating long-term effects of alcohol, smoking, and command stress, and is easy to see why so many of the top Allied military leaders died or fell by the wayside during the war.

In this radio show, we interview Mr. Toby Rush, Founder and CEO of EyeVerify, LLC, based out of Kansas City, KS. This company has a very unique solution in that it focuses upon examining the blood vessel pattern in the whites of the eye (also known as the "Sclera") in order to confirm the identity of an individual. The eye also possesses the iris (which is located at the front), as well as the retina (which is located in the back). There are vendors in this space whom also make identification solutions, known as iris recognition and retinal recognition, respectively. We will find out out from Mr. Rush what makes their product stand out from these solutions. EyeVerify mostly focuses upon the mobile and wireless application markets, making it easier for the end user to gain access to their smartphone, rather than having to type in a password each and every time. EyeVerify is also the recipient of a recent $6 million dollar investment, and we will find out how that money will be used to propel EyeVerify into the future.
Finally, we will hear from Mr. Rush about his thoughts into the future of Virtual Payments made from Smartphones, and how EyeVerify's solution can fit into that market space.
