To commemorate Independence Day, TBN will be broadcasting this moving film that follows an Army Veteran nurse’s struggle to overcome the traumatic experiences inflicted by her tour in Iraq. Leading actress GiGi Erneta plays alongside John Schneider, Andrew Sensenig, and William Devane. Devane won the Choice Award for actor at the GI Film Festival in Washington DC for his role in this film.
I would recommend watching this movie that I produced to everyone. It addresses Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, an issue which plagues more than 171,400 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. Awarded the Best Narrative Feature at the GI Film Festival, this movie unfolds a beautiful tale of courage and sacrifice. You will experience a new-found level of appreciation for our nation’s service men and women after watching this film and its accurate depiction of the hardships veterans face after returning home from war.
If TBN does not air in your area or if you don’t have cable, you can always watch it online at TBN’S website.
It is also available for purchase at various Christian book stores across the country, such as LifeWay Christian Stores and Family Christian Stores. You can also purchase it on my website by clicking here.
For a personal update, I have been doing a few interviews recently about “Flag of My Father” and my other endeavors, including a Blog Talk Radio interview with Donald James Parker, which can be heard here. Today I was interviewed by Shellie Tomlinson on her nationally syndicated radio show “All Things Southern.” I will post the link to this interview in a separate blog once I receive it. Also, I have also been invited to be on the faculty of the Gideon Media Arts Conference & Film Festival this year in Ridgecrest, North Carolina, Aug. 6-11, 2011. If you’re in media, maybe you can make it out. I highly recommend the conference!!! And I have been teaching at Mary Thoma’s TASA Studios in Shreveport. There is an adult acting camp that I will be teaching at scheduled for July 25-29, 2011. Mary is a Meisner certified instructor and has pulled together a great team of professionals to teach at the camp.
Happy Independence Day, everyone!
