Hey people, how are you doing? men
I have started to read Sebastian Junger’s book called War. It was an accompanying book to the documentary Restrepo; a documentary I strongly suggest you watch. It is about an airborne infantry platoon in a remote base camp in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan. What amazes me about the book is how accurately he describes life of an airborne infantry platoon; something I have found hard to describe it, yet Sebastian does an amazing job at it. I can say this because I am a retired United States paratrooper who served in the 82nd Airborne Division as an airborne infantry team leader.
I am reading this for my film on combat veteran issues and the sex trade. I also reading many articles on the sex trade which for me brings me great anger. My hope is that my film will shed light onto these two topics and bring change and a national conversation about these two issues. I know it is a big goal, but I think in big terms and have big goals. I will be writing more about in my blog Notes From Outpost 187
So guys, please spread the word about my blogs. Also if you have any questions please write me.
