Ted Fujimoto Very rarely does a movie (especially a documentary) stop us in our tracks and cause us to look at the world and life differently. Leigh Rachel Faith and I went to a movie screening tonight that a friend David Salzberg Jr co-directed and co-produced. Whether you agree or disagree with our government's policies to go to war, this movie shakes you to your core and puts you on the front line of what our country's military women and men do in service of our country. This film has qualified to be voted on for consideration by the The Academy for an Oscar. We hope they will win. It would be well-deserved and be in honor of our men and women in the military who serve our country. This is an important movie to watch--so please do so and tell 10 other friends to watch it too.

"Everyone, especially non-military, should see this movie. Unless you've fought in a war, you have no idea what our service men and women go through, how close they become, or the incredible lengths to which they will go for one another," remarked Donna Walker, Gold Star Mother.

Col. J.B. Vowell, a career ARMY infantry officer and commanding officer of the Task Force No Slack in the 101st Airborne Division commented, "This film is and will be a phenomenal picture for a wide audience across the country. It is dramatic, unscripted, visceral and real. Nothing I have ever seen comes close. People in the general public who have so far been deprived of knowing and understanding what is happening in Afghanistan will be awed. It achieves what no screenplay can: it places you in the most harrowing combat scenes against a hostile enemy in the most complex terrain imaginable where buddies fight for each other's survival and mission accomplishment."

Rhonda Moore If you live anywhere near these places, go see this Film- Excellent work - you will not leave with dry eyes!!!!

Chuck Notter It was both amazing and humbling to see what the soldiers went thru on this deployment. Everyone should see this film great job Mike and Carlos Thank you

Audrey Shaw-Helmer(Gold Star Widow) I've seen the Hornet's Nest twice now and I'm still at a loss for words with what to say. Thank you so much for making this film and for telling the story of our soldiers
