Wonderful!!! Wow!!
(Coming to you from Texas!)

Good job, Baby! I loved the dancing dudes -too funny. Brad in the small chapel was very touching and I finally figured out that one soldier was showing his breastplate that had been shot, right? Yeeowza!
Keep safe -I love you!
Mrs. Sargent

Hey I loved it and I'm a flaming Bush lover. heh heh. No really. I'm still pondering the significance of the sheep running by in that one scene. Could you give the meaning behind that particular imagerie?

Do you have it hosted somewhere folks that don't use Micro$oft can get it?


Here from a link from somewhere else, as a former squid, I'd like to thank you very very very much for your service and sacrifice.

No, I am not tech savvy enought to provide non-Microsoft support for those rare few of you who refuse to be assimilated. Sorry.

No significance (that I am aware of) concerning the sheep running by. I just thought it was funny.

To answer the lovely Mrs. Sargent: That wasn't just any chapel, but a 1600-year old Christian monastery on the outskirts of Mosul, the site of a tomb (Saint Somebody, I forget who) that used to draw thousands every year to see it. Their attendance is way down since the war, obviously, but if anyone is happy we came to Iraq, it's the Iraqi Christians. Someday I'll get around to telling their incredible story.

Also, that wasn't a breastplate my buddy from a brother platoon was holding up, but a piece of their Stryker that he had saved from when their vehicle was rammed by an exploding VBIED. (All crew members survived). Say what you will about the Stryker, it sure can take a licking.

And the "dancing dudes," those are two of my squad members, Michael and Paul. Based on the sheer amount of raw footage I have of these two jokers, they should play a prominent role in the final cut of the movie. I don't think I'll ever be able to forget these guys I work with over here. They are quite a group of characters.

I plan on releasing one final trailer before I start work on editing the actual film itself. It'll likely feature the Iraqi people exclusively. My working title is "What Casey Sheehan Died For".

Look for it in a few months.

First time reading your blog/seeing the trailer. thank you so much sargeant. i have loved ones w/25thID who you replaced. Took me right back to that year for them watching the video. I visit WRAMC often as part of a non profit who helps wounded & their families and see 1st hand the courage and commitment of my heroes. You're one of them. thanks again. shelly

I was in Kuwait when it broke loose. We declared victory, and too soon after, I retired and went home. I have a great family and a great job that helps people across the world. Still, both my wife and I have felt an emptiness that has yet to be replaced. I loved being a Sailor and my wife loved being a Sailor's wife. We realize now, it's the people, the stories and the noble mission we miss. Your words and visuals have struck a chord too long unplayed. Play on American Citizen Soldier, play on ...
M&G

Buck, I am so sorry that these particular plans are on hold, but watched the trailer again and it hints at a full blown treasure. You are so incredibly talented. I will be watching your movies at the same time I am acquired your best sellers. You will be famous beyond your wildest dreams. You are that talented!!!!
