Cant say enough about the new documentary Restrepo. I first heard about it a year and a half ago from Ann and Mike, then read the book this summer, and finally got to see the movie this week. To me the movie said three things:
1. The camraderie between soldiers living in a hard area.
2. Dealing with Afghans.
3. The trauma of losing a close friend.
This is not an easy documentary to watch but it is something everyone should see. Also, one word of advice do not try to stereotype Afghanistan off this one place. This place is considered extreme for a reason.
