GI Film Fest: D minus 2

Hello all,

Just 2 more days until the world premier for Chosin at the GI Film Festival in Washington, DC. Brian and I arrived in DC on Tuesday afternoon for the start of the festival and so far things have been going great. Brendan Millet and Laura Law, the founders of the festival, have really put together a fantastic event featuring over 30 films that honor our nations veterans. They hosted a Congressional reception last night and had the honor of meeting Senator John McCain. Senator McCain's son is a U.S. Marine and Brian actually trained him at the School of Infantry at Camp Pendelton.

We also met up with a pair of Army vets, Nick and Tom, who run a veteran-owned and operated t-shirt company called "Ranger Up." They are sponsors for the festival and they also sponsor military vets that are fighters in the UFC. Much like Brian and I, these guys have used their experience as soldiers to launch a company and forge their own path. Check out their gear at www.rangerup.com

Military.com interviewed Brian for a piece that will also feature Glenn Close, Ricky Schroder, and Gary Sinise. I will post the link once the story is launched.

More to follow as the week continues....

Semper Fi,

Anton
