Abstract

Ben Rollins, a two-time military veteran-turned student and screen actor, details the story of how he met and married his wife.

We had the opportunity to interview a longtime member of Student Video Productions, Ben Rollins, about his life. Ben is a 51 year-old undergraduate student with dreams of becoming a high school history teacher. Ben had many fascinating stories, ranging from growing up in a military family to ringing the new year while washing the pepper spray out of the eyes of an Iraqi detainee. The story we chose to focus on, however, was the rather touching account of how Ben married his wife, Cathy, after being separated from her for multiple decades.
