The official Sebastian Junger community
I am all sorts of jacked up about seeing Restrepo and I just saw on Facebook that they are going to be doing a free screening at the National Geographic Society and a Q&A with Sebastian and Tim. I submitted my name and I hope I am chosen to attend. Anyone else planning to attend?
I am so excited about seeing the events from the book unfold on the screen. Will be interesting to also see the soldiers and see if they are as I imagined them to be. I really think it's pure genius that Junger wrote a book that has a documentary to go along with it.
Not to continually gush about this book but, as many good books do, it has ruined me for other books at the moment. I'm trying to read "No True Glory" (about the battle of Fallujah) and I'm having a tough go. It's a good book and full of awesome detail but it just doesn't read the same.
I put in to attend, probably going to have to be medicated. I am bringing my wife if selected so she can see what it was like. I am the OEF VI generation Sky Soldier and fought in Paktikia (Sharana, Jani Khel, Kushmand, Barmel, Sar Howzeh) and Northern Kandhahar (Shah Wali Khot, Dohab, Chenar )
