Let the Troops tell the tale

Congrats to Deborah Scranton's The War Tapes, which won the international documentary feature competition at the Tribeca Film Festival this week! This simply demonstrates how valuable it is to get boots-on-the-ground stories from our troops to counter the doom and gloom of the major news outlets. Bravo, Deborah!
