Once more unto the breach, dear friends

"Combat Outpost: Afghanistan" is the working title for a two-hour PBS documentary I'm producing in association with Partisan Pictures. The film will chronicle the Afghanistan tour of the Marines in 2nd platoon, A Co., 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment.

Videographer Rob Curtis and I leave for Afghanistan May 1 and will spend six weeks with our Marines. This will be early in their seven-month tour. We will return for three weeks in September as they wrap up their tour.

Who knows what kind of internet access well have at their outpost in Naw Zad in Helmand Province. We'll update this as we can.
