I found a great post at Face Planet while tag surfing today, Restrepo: Afghanistan close and personal.

So Little real news coverage exists about the troops fighting in Afghanistan. That’s why I liked the post. I t gives a great review about a documentary written about our troops deployed to the Korangal valley in Afghanistan. This area experiences the most deadly fighting in Afghanistan! Here are a few excerpts:

My most recent interview was with a man returning from the Korangal valley…..

Due to the severity of fighting in the “valley,” it was recommended the interviewer watch a documentary written about the war effort there before the interview:

The commissioner ….recommended I watch Restrepo, a documentary about a platoon stationed in the valley for 15 months….

I wish I hadn’t…..
