If your a regular visitor of Trek to the Troops you have noticed that we haven’t been posting as much as we normally do, though we do try to post often with news and information related to veteran/military issues, such Stolen Valor and other issues related to troops and veterans issues and entertainment news. the reason why the lack of postings is because early last month I went back to college to continue me education, using the GI-Bill and continuing my goals to work on obtaining a degree in Communications. Lack of volunteers for the website leaving me to do most of the work on postings at this time. Lack of time due to classes and of course my day job doesn’t give me the opportunity to keep up all the time, but I will try to do better.
I am currently attending Pierce College in Los Angles. when attending I realize there is not a Veteran’s Club on Campus, so the past couple of weeks I have been creating and recruiting fellow U.S. Military Veterans to join our Student Veterans of America Pierce College Chapter. Visit www.studentveterans.org
I will be starting a section on the website dedicated to the Chapter of SVA that I founded here on Campus feel free to check it out, and if your attending a college and you don’t have a Veteran’s Club, I can advise you on starting your own feel free to contact me through the contact us page on this website.
Today’s interview Is with U.S. Navy Korean War Veteran and Actor, Barry Clark, best known for his part being in the green Gorn Costume fighting one on one with Captain Jame T. Kirk in Star Trek TOS, but have been in a few classic Star Trek episodes.

I will be attending the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention which starts Thursday July 31st, ending on Sunday August 3rd. I will be posting up exclusive photos and Video messages through out the convention for those who are deployed and can’t join in the fun.
Also got word that Trek Radio, (Podcast) would like to interview me about Trek to the Troops will give you details of that as well.
Trek to the Troops has a history with the Las Vegas convention. Starting in 2005 I was working on recruiting Star Trek Alums for a Entertainment Tour overseas with the Troops which would have happen in 2006, but unfortunately. the director of the tour with Armed Forces Entertainment passed away which canceled it. We were able to make connections with Star Trek Actors to visit with the troops at the Bob Hope Hollywood USO at LAX for many years.
