The Norwich Record | Winter 2018

Brian Bill ’01

Vermont has suffered the most military casualties per capita of all 50 states in the Middle East wars. Responding to this startling statistic in 2006, NU Communications Professor Bill Estill began a student-produced film documentary project, Vermont Fallen. Screened in February 2007, it contained footage from 75 interviews gleaned from more than 50 hours of filming, and earned national attention with segments airing on NBC Nightly News. This past spring, Estill and his students completed a 2014 update to Vermont Fallen to include the stories of those killed since the last release. Among those newly honored is Chief Petty Officer Brian R. Bill ’01, a U.S. Navy SEAL killed in Afghanistan in 2011. Estill has long fostered student talent at Norwich University in the making of award-winning films, including In Country, a documentary about the Vietnam War that won a national student Emmy in 1999.
