Calling all Cooks! Founders of Honor Their Service (some info on their Facebook page) are putting together a Milbloggers Cookbook based on recipes from military bloggers and other lively folks who support our troops. They will sell the cookbook to raise funds for their programs, which include Operation Fresh Air, which I've written about over the last couple of years HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE.
Got a recipe? They are accepting recipes for another day or so. Go HERE for details. MOST IMPORTANTLY, stay tuned for an update on where you can buy a copy!
Movie Alert! Screening this weekend in Washington, DC and Arlington, VA and some other cities across the country, is a new documentary, "Brothers at War". From their site:
"BROTHERS AT WAR is an intimate portrait of an American family during a turbulent time. Jake Rademacher sets out to understand the experience, sacrifice, and motivation of his two brothers serving in Iraq. The film follows Jake’s exploits as he risks everything—including his life—to tell his brothers’ story. Often humorous, but sometimes downright lethal, BROTHERS AT WAR is a remarkable journey where Jake embeds with four combat units in Iraq. Unprecedented access to U.S. and Iraqi combat units take him behind the camouflage curtain with secret reconnaissance troops on the Syrian border, into sniper "Hide Sites" in the Sunni Triangle, through raging machine gun battles with the Iraqi Army. Ultimately, the film follows his brothers home where separations and life-threatening work ripple through their parents, siblings, wives and children. BROTHERS AT WAR provides a rare look at the bonds and service of our soldiers on the frontlines and the profound effects their service has on the loved ones they leave behind."It's gotten good milblogger and "Angel" reviews, so I encourage you to check it out if it's showing in your neighborhood this weekend or later in the month. Go HERE for locations. Local theaters here seem to be showing the film at least into next week.
