Meyer retired from the military as a part-timer in the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves. His part-time job turned into eight years of active duty, twelve combat deployments, and two years of state-side medivac and human remains missions. As a result of his military flying career and his unknown genetic makeup, he has some issues.
During many of these “trips,” he mounted a camera behind his flight engineer seat and tapped into the comm system on the C-130 capturing everything from the mundane to the intense. Meyer is using these videos to spark his memory so that he can share his experiences with others, especially non-military.
Meyer received an MFA in photography and taught at the university level before returning to the military. Meyer used photography and video in the past to tell his stories but is now concentrating on the written word. After exiting the military, the VA thought it would be a good idea to go back to school to learn a new trade. The VA gave him an aptitude test, and he scored high as a web developer. Little did they know that he use to teach the same courses that he would take. As part of the major, he was required to take Writing for the Web, and in it, he created a blog. That blog started him on the path he is now on.
