U.S. Army Recruits O’Connell as the Voice for Fort Huachuca Documentary
Historic Retrospective Traces Fort’s History Back to Indian Wars of the late 19th CenturyPublished Friday, February 17, 2012
FORT HUACHUCA, AZ, February 17, 2012 - - In 1877, when Colonel A. V. Kautz, Commander of the Department of Arizona, ordered Captain Samuel M. Whitside and two troops of the 6th Cavalry to travel to southeastern Arizona in order to select a site for a new outpost, the Colonel never could have imagined that he was laying the foundation for what is today one of America’s most critical installations within the Department of Defense – Fort Huachuca.
When the U.S. Army commissioned a documentary to share the amazing history of Fort Huachuca with military personnel and honored guests, it was agreed that veteran voice over talent Peter K. O’Connell would serve as the video’s narrator, telling one of the most interesting and significant stories in the history of the United States Army and Military Intelligence.
What began as Camp Huachuca, a central outpost during the Indian Wars of the late 19th Century, has today become one of the most critical installations in the Department of Defense. Fort Huachuca is the home of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center and the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM)/9th Army Signal Command. Fort Huachuca is also the headquarters of Army Military Affiliate Radio System (MARS), the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) and the Electronic Proving Ground (EPG). Libby Army Airfield is also located on post.
The video was produced by Eagle Video Productions Inc., a nationally and internationally recognized full service video production company based in Raleigh, NC.
In addition this most recent documentary narration for the U.S. Army, Mr. O'Connell's professional voice-over credits include national and regional voiceover productions for companies such as PBS (Public Broadcasting Service), Shell Oil, Starz Cable Channel, SunSetter Awnings, Time Warner Cable, New Jersey Tourism, J. Walter Thompson Advertising, Cleveland Browns, Harlequin Enterprises and Pathmark Supermarkets.
O'Connell's voice-over talents have been heard around the world in retail commercials for radio and TV, medical narrations, infomercials, political commercial voiceovers, TV network promos, e-learning narration projects (computer-based training, internet-based training and web-based training), public service announcements, message on-hold as well as other video and media productions.
