I wanted to invite your attention to a video series on AOL called “Home of the Brave” that has been filmed and prodeced by Sean Efran. This is a link to the episode on David Bellavia, an Infantryman who won the Silver Star during action in Iraq. http://on.aol.com/playlist/home-of-the-brave—full-series-144845?icid=bottom_related_thumb_1#_videoid=517410330 (may have to cut and paste if doesn’t come through as a hotlink). There are six in total so far and provide first person accounts of their actions in some pretty desperate situations. Using modern day technology to remind us that there are many heroes that walk amongst us and I’m proud to be a fellow American with all. Please share this link as perhaps a small way to help bridge this perceived gap between military and civilian populations by sharing real military stories that haven’t been given the Hollywood treatment like so many of the current offerings in cinema.
