Episode 7

Roman Baca - Part 1

USMC machine gunner, veteran of Fallujah, Iraq in 2005...professional dancer. Yeah, you read that right. Roman Baca is neither an ordinary Marine nor an ordinary dancer. What makes a professional dancer want to join the Marine Corps? Does he tell anyone he's a dancer? What does Marine Corps fitness do for his dancing? So many questions and Roman had no shortage of humble, articulate, intelligent answers. Such an enjoyable, articulate interview that we couldn't finish it in one sitting. This is Part I. I, for one, can't wait for Part II.
