I'll admit I know nothing about this company, but you'll want to visit the Nivota booth in the Innovation Alley. Their mission is to give a voice to veterans by helping to preserve the history of military men and women and their service to the country. Caleb hopes to interview them for the Family History Fanatics YouTube channel as it's similar to his Eagle Scout Project focused on preserving histories of military personnel for the National Archive.
