Brothers at War

A young filmmaker risks everything, including his life to tell his brothers' story. Often humorous, sometimes lethal, this embedding with four combat units in Iraq, gives him insight into his two soldier brothers, his family, and ultimately into his own character.

That was truly moving, Wordsmith. I'm in awe of the film maker who was willing to risk his life to understand his brothers. This sort of heroism is something that the moonbats will never understand. Thank you so much for sharing.

Wow that was so awesome and heartwarming. What moving piece. G-d bless our soldiers and in this case the brother of two soldiers that risked it all to tell their story.

You got me. Yes, I am a contributor to FA.

I live in Santa Monica. Yesterday, I saw my first McCain bumpesticker on a car, alongside a "W '04" sticker.

Glad people are taking the time to watch the video. I know 7 minutes can be a longtime when you are blog-hopping, and with so many YouTube vids out there, they become "a dime a dozen".

"This sort of heroism is something that the moonbats will never understand."

Depends on the moonbat, I suppose. This moonbat understands it. But then, I'm a mother of an Iraq vet.

Very moving Wordsmith.

Good cause...those care packages.

My church has adopted 3 soldiers who don't receive any mail nor have family support. We send them packages every month.

Great video. And I still recommend for anyone wishing to REALLY support our troops instead of "saying" so like the Dems.

Sorry, it's been unusually busy. I'm doing production for work (hauling gymnastics equipment from work, setting up on site for a commercial on a college campus), then I fly out to visit my parents for 4th of July.


10 years ago, I worked security and as lead cashier, mainly at the Gap on Wilshire and 20th. That's not that far from Montana and 7th. Sure I'll meet you sometime!
