Gunner Palace: Iraq Embedded Documentary

This seems like a really good documentary to see and I am looking forward to hearing more about it’s release. It’s called Gunner Palace and is shot from the ranks of the 2/3 Field Artillery aka the “Gunner” Battalion. Here’s a couple of clips that are on the site, one is of a soldier freestyle rapping and the other films a young soldier play the Star Spangled Banner on an electric guitar in a surreal homage to Jimi Hendrix.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
