Some Military Stuff

May is National Military Appreciation Month. I wanted to be sure to have a few military posts this month.

First, I have a video trailer to share with you for a movie, War Tapes, expected to be released this summer. It was already viewed at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in April.
Here is what it is about:
From the official website
"THE WAR TAPES follows three men: Sergeant Steve Pink, Sergeant Zack Bazzi, and Specialist Mike Moriarty. Steve is a young carpenter with a dark, irreverent sense of humor who joined the Guard for college money. Zack is an inquisitive, ironic traveler and university student. Mike is a husband and father of two, driven to fight by honor and redemption. You will see Operation Iraqi Freedom through their eyes.
All three men leave women at home - a mother, a girlfriend, and a wife. THE WAR TAPES - like any true story about war - engages the hard, tense, passionate, always difficult and sometimes beautiful way these relationships develop and change. The soldiers' unfailing candor and honesty defines the heart of this film. THE WAR TAPES is not afraid to show soldiers as fully complicated human beings -this is not reality TV, and it's certainly not mainstream media coverage of the war. This is real war. These soldiers got the story the 2,700 embedded reporters never could."

Don't forget, you can pause/stop the music on my site down below under the photo slideshow. This way, you can hear the video.
If the video is choppy you can also try to view it on the official site HERE

Please note: there is some language in this video trailer.
