Matt Grimshaw aka "The DocuMattarian" produced the YouTube documentary "VetsGrow". And what started out as a simple how-to video on growing marijuana, turned into a life dedicated to fighting for veteran rights, being pissed off at how the US government views marijuana laws and helping them grow the medicine they can't get from the VA.

The Library of Congress (LOC) wants your veteran story! Ret. Army Colonel, Karen Lloyd, describes how the Veterans History Project has an entire kit available to help you interview the veteran in your life.  The holidays are the perfect time to capture their incredible stories with your phone or tablet.  And once you submit them, the LOC will preserve their story forever in archives that are frequently looked at by educators, authors, and filmmakers. 

For the interview and submission instructions check out The Veterans History Project
