The military doctors, nurses, orderlies and other military personnel seen in the documentary FIGHTING FOR LIFE are truly as heroic as are the combat-wounded men and women whose lives the medical personnel fight to save.
Nancy Brown of www.YourMilitary.com and I both screened the documentary before interviewing the producer/director/writer Terry Sanders on our BlogTalkRadio show www.YourMilitaryLife.com.
Nancy and I agreed with Terry that he showed the bloody hospital scenes in a manner that doesn't make viewers turn away from the film. Instead, you want to follow what's happening to these wounded military personnel. And, as Terry said, the film should be seen by Americans so that we all keep in mind our wounded veterans.
Check your local PBS station for date and time that this documentary will be shown this Memorial Day weekend. Or go to www.fightingforlifethemovie.com for both your local PBS listing and to order the DVD.
Then listen to our BlogTalkRadio interview of Terry Sanders -- it's a fascinating account of a filmmaker who got caught up in the story he started out to tell.
