About us

GI Concept's lineage dates back to the golden age of Hollywood. Brothers Harry, Albert, Sam and Jack Warner incorporated "Warner Brothers" motion picture studios in 1923. This collaboration went on to produce such legendary film classics as "The Maltese Falcon" and "Casablanca".

As a descendant of the original Warner Brothers, Jeff Warner is carrying on in his family's tradition. Jeff is President and founder of GI Concepts and established the company in 1985. Following graduation from the Southern California Military Academy and four years of film school at The Focus Institute, Jeff embarked on a long and well established career in the television, film and print media industries.

Between 1991 and 2001, Jeff set out on a series of overseas expeditions to the original locations of WWII battles. As a battlefield archeologist, Jeff accompanied excursions to Pearl Harbor Hawaii, Tarawa atoll, Johnston atoll, Majuro atoll, Saipan, Tinian, Iwo Jima, Normandy France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany.

Based in Fountain Valley California, Jeff is a military history scholar with over twenty years experience.
