Web TV show cast visits installation

Cast members of the web television show “Caribe Road” visited the National Training Center and Fort Irwin, Dec. 9. Cast members included Alexandra Manea, Thom Tran, Mike Pfaff, Ransford Doherty and Hector Bustamante, who also directs and produces the series. They met with NTC and Fort Irwin commander, Brig. Gen. Terry Ferrell, and Command Sgt. Maj. Lance P. Lehr and spoke with Fort Irwin community members at the Exchange.

Caribe Road (pronounced ka-ree-bay, Spanish for “Caribbean”) is an ambitious new web television series that follows the fictional story of U.S. Special Forces commander Mark Caribe (Hector Bustamante), who is hell bent in starting a new life away from the military after a previous black ops mission goes terribly wrong. But first, under the direction of the President of the United States, Caribe must accept the command of a new elite combat unit called SFT1 in hopes of capturing a terrorist named Carlos Saldana.

The show’s website states that “Caribe Road” was born out of a deep rooted desire to say thank you and show appreciation to all the men and women and their families who sacrifice so much to protect our freedom.
