Dennis Woytek  CE4, Seabee   

Quang Tri  (69)


The Telly Awards has named Dennis Woytek (AFVN Quang Tri 1968-69) as a winner in the 37th Annual Telly Awards for “The Seabees Return To Vietnam."  With over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor. 

That time spent with men you do not know, but call Brothers, is a special time.  11 Seabees returned to Vietnam.  To walk and feel the earth beneath their feet, that once changed them, in ways only they know, yet share a common bond with all Veterans.  The heat, humidity, smells, immediately transport all 11 Seabees through time.  Memories are as vivid as yesterday, for many those memories are constant.  Returning to the Camps, Bases and outpost, built by Seabees as well as actively defended, a journey for some to heal those wounds that haunt them quietly, that no one understands.  This journey of 11 Seabees truly represent every Seabee that served in Vietnam, this journey is for all of us. 

The Telly Awards is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films.  Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
