Damn.


I just finished reading War written by the other co-director about their time in the Korengal Valley.


Also...he was the photographer that went along with James Brabazon during his second trip to Liberia in My Friend the Mercenary...which I have also read.


The frick man.

He died living, that's for sure.

I don't know what else he did in his life, but I am grateful to him for making Restrepo.

he did great work, and its terrible this happened, but it's the risk you take when you put yourself in situations you have no business being involved with.

That sucks. The presentation of war in Afghanistan at the company level in Restrepo is ridiculously accurate for many troops. I always reference the complex ambush w/ IED at the beginning of the film when folks ask me what it's like to be blown up. Hetherington and Junger did a great job with that documentary.

What did you think of the Captain basically blaming his predecessor for everything?

i doubt it...he never came off as one of those self righteous, "Look at what I'm doing over here" kind of guys...It was always about educating about what was happening.

Tacky, but I don't know anything of his predecessor to say that he was wrong. I established an outpost in a place that my predecessor wouldn't have even dreamed of going, so I have similar thoughts but I try to keep them to myself.
