This series features GLENN SELBY, an MC2 in the NAVY, interviewing OTTO and a live acoustic performances of his songs “Just Got Started Loving You” and “Soldier & Jesus,” which was set against a montage of war footage and photos.

OTTO said: “I'm part of a military family. My dad was a drill sergeant in the US ARMY for 23 years—and my grandfather is a KOREAN WAR vet; I served in the NAVY myself. VETERANS’ DAY has always held a special meaning in our house and to be able to give back and pay my respects with ‘Soldiers & Jesus’ reminds me why I do what I do everyday.”
