We’ve just returned from a fantastic weekend at the GI Film Festival in Washington, DC. Steve got a chance to meet and catch up with Chief of Staff of the Army / his old boss in Bosnia, General Casey, and we also saw some great films including Swim (which went on to win the GI Spirit Award), Facing the Enemy, and God and Country – these films are all making the festival circuit and are worth seeking out! Thanks to Brandon and Laura for a fantastic weekend!
