Description
Steve Sohmer discusses his book, “Patriots.” He says he spent three years researching the book by meeting and talking with people in the military. Sohmer explains that the rules about romance between officers and enlisted personnel in the military are very simple, but the enforcement procedures are not simple. He tells of the discovery of a military conspiracy against the government of the United States by a woman lieutenant as part of the plot. Sohmer shares that he went to Vietnam as a tourist and spent time in Saigon. He believes that the soldiers who were able to survive their imprisonment during the Vietnam War were able to rise to a higher moral plane. Sohmer goes on to discuss his time as president of Columbia Pictures, his work on the Emmy Awards, Hakodate in Japan, and the two functions for which he wrote the book.
