The Carrier is a 70 minute full feature documentary, capturing and high-lighting the world's first college basketball ball game on the Carl Vinson Nuclear Aircraft Carrier. This was the first and last game of its kind to ever be played on such a grand stage. 

Mr. Barber and Mr. Hausle spent a week on the Carl Vinson, 300 miles off the coast of California, documenting  the men and women of the US NAVY, from full on flight operations, to shipboard systems, to ice cream and karaoke below decks! 




The Veterans Museum at Balboa Park honors the men and women who served their country in the U.S. Armed Forces and Wartime Merchant Marine by documenting their contributions and experiences and preserving their legacy for future generations through their individual stories.

If you're interested in telling your story whether it happened 50 years ago or last year, contact us! We want to tell the individual stories of all veterans!
