Before You Decide to Enlist - Tune into HBO Thurs. 9 13 07 - 9 pm Eastern
Now that the DREAM ACT is tied up in the STRIVE Bill encouraging undocumented students to enlist... everyone needs to watch the HBO documentary:
"Alive Day Memories: Home From Iraq"
Airs on HBO: Thursday, September 13 9pm Eastern
Not only is it a good film... but it was produced by James Gandolfini (The Sopranos) -- giving even more reason to see it.
"Tens of thousands of U.S. troops have been injured in Iraq. And for the first time in American history, 90% of the wounded survive their injuries, but a greater percentage of these men and women are returning with amputations, traumatic brain injuries and severe post-traumatic stress.
A new HBO documentary provides an inside look at how the war has permanently changed the lives of these wounded troops. It is titled "Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq." The film premiered on Sunday night and is airing again on HBO this Thursday at 9pm Eastern."
Co-founder of Downtown Community Television Center and award-winning journalist, Jon Alpert co-directed and co-produced this documentary. His daughter Tami Alpert is a producer and reporter for DCTV. She also assisted in producing Alive Day Memories.
