American Herro - It's A Gem!
22 October 2009 | by dak_esbergSee all my reviews

I found this movie to be touching. I watched on Capital Hill with Kirk and Herro in the room. It brought back many fond memories and certainly enlightened me to more of the Kurdish story. Thank you Kirk for bringing this to us all.

In it you will find the story of behind the scenes struggle and success. You will find a family dedicated to the pursuit of freedom, a value we all love and enjoy.

It's a wonderful opportunity to see how our diplomatic corps goes out on the edge to fight for world peace. Herro has put her life on the line so many times and she will most likely not be remembered as a military hero, but she does deserve recognition, along with many other Kurds, for what she has accomplished.
