Filming with Bonita Springs’ Veterans

We set up for an afternoon of filming in Riverside Park with several of Bonita Springs’ veteran community leaders. Adam Prentki, Nick Romano and Steve Slachta are all veterans and all currently serve their community of Bonita Spring today.

Steve Slachta served with the Air Force for 23 years. Today, he serves as a councilman on Bonita Springs’ city council.

Adam Prentki enlisted in the armed forces in the 80s, and today serves as commander of American Legion post 303.

Nick Romano served during the Vietnam War. He shared the story of how he was shot three times in one night. Today, he is president of the Bonita Bay Club Veterans Council.

A big thank you to the Trianon Hotel at Bonita Bay for hosting us for our week of filming. Your accommodations were wonderful.

We would also like to thank Executive Producer Bob Gillette for helping to arrange so many interviews while we were in Bonita Springs.
