Reporting for duty

SIFF recommendation anyone?

I would really appreciate a recommendation for a film playing at SIFF. I have a particular talent of choosing really bad films to see at that festival, so I would happily welcome anyone’s advice as to what I should see or what you heard was good.

Ehren Watada of Fort Lewis.

Valor and bravery are amazing sights to see.

For the first time since the start of the war, a commissioned officer is refusing deployment to fight in Iraq. On Wednesday U.S. Army 1st Lieutenant Ehren Watada announced his intention to disobey what he says are illegal orders to deploy to Iraq. He was supposed to make his announcement at a news conference yesterday but military officials told Watada he could not attend because he was barred from speaking publicly about his case while on duty at the base.
Watada is a member of the 3rd Brigade, 2nd infantry Division based at Fort Lewis near Seattle, Washington. His unit is set to be deployed later this month. Lieutenant Watada faces court martial unless the Army allows him to resign or assigns him to duties not directly connected to the war.

On Wednesday, Lieutenant Watada issued a video recording explaining why he is refusing to fight.
