I just got this email sent to me from my Bro who has been in Iraq since before the start of the war...

Subject: FW: A COMPANY OF SOLDIERS
From: 1st Cav. Div. Assn.

The film A COMPANY OF SOLDIERS will be broadcast next Tuesday night (February 22) on PBS at 9 PM (check local listings). It is the soldiers' story of fighting in Iraq - a month in the life of the 1st Battalion of the 8th Cavalry stationed in South Baghdad. It was shot last November during one of the most dangerous times for that unit.
A COMPANY OF SOLDIERS was made by October Films under the umbrella of the PBS Frontline Series and we'd like to ask you to email this to everyone you know with a request for them to send it on to everyone they know. We are hoping to get as many US Military families to tune in. One word of warning is that the film graphically shows the risks and consequences of what it is to fight in Iraq - so if you haven't told your loved ones, they might be in for a shock.

One senior confidential source at the Pentagon who has seen the film told us: "It is compelling stuff. It proves once again that it is our Soldiers who are our best spokespeople. It is not only courageous filmmaking (both figuratively and literally), but it's also an example of very insightful filmmaking. The film captures our Soldiers' humanity, putting a human face on a very complex set of issues - that is priceless stuff."

This will be on the big-screen here - 20 or 30 of us watching. I passed this on to a couple of my buds on the other locations as well, and they seemed interested!

Regardless of how any of us may feel about the situation, politics, or whatever else, we have GOT to believe in and support the troops. Yeah, count me in.

Appreciate the heads-up!

Leave it to PBS to produce the most intriquing and enlightening documentaries out there. I'm sorry but all versions of the discovery channel is laughable in comparison. Only HBO comes close. I will be sure to tune in as well.
