DVD - Last Stand of USS Houston

The DVD label encourages viewers to take a copy of the DVD (or buy one extra) to your local PUBLIC ACCESS TV STATION. Public Access is NOT the same as PUBLIC TELEVISION. Public Access or "Community Access" TV stations are usually small channels dedicated to serve a town or county with local productions and features and features that are requested by their viewers. You can find a list of COMMUNITY ACCESS and Educational TV Stations at THIS LINK. The DVD is in two parts and includes extras of footage from reunions as well as the two songs by Dave Peters and Terry Keith ("Standing on The Houston" and "It's Good To Be Home"). Please get a copy to your local Community Access or ETV station soon. There is no charge to air it. Buzz Creek does request a courtesy email to let us know it is being shown. Some Community Access TV stations have excellent digital networks to other stations and can share the video with other stations without you having to track them down and put a copy in their hands! Here are more Links to Public Access Stations or how to find them: New Jersey JAG. You might also 'google' for "public access tv stations - (your state)".

Can you pls tell me how I can get the DVD. I have read the story of the USS Houston and I am praying that a person like Spielberg can make a movie about the crew and the ships accomplishments.

Sorry the CustomFlix version is not yet ready. however THE LAST STAND of USS HOUSTON is available via the link on the main usshouston.org website. On that order form, you use the paypal purchase, which accepts any credit card. The two part film ( 2 DVD's) can also be ordered by sending a check to Buzz Creek at 6 Continental Drive, Sparta, NJ 07871. The price is $24.95. Shipping is $5. The DVD contains bonus sections that were not in the VHS version. Sorry it is not a Spielburg movie. Just a bunch of very respected vets telling their own story with a lot of illustrative video and photos to help show the story. See www.usshouston.org/movies for the exact page in the website for ordering by the web.
