The Sandbox

GWOT hot wash, straight from the wire

Welcome to The Sandbox, a forum for service members who have served or are currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, returned vets, spouses and caregivers. The Sandbox's focus is not on policy and partisanship (go to our Blowback page for that), but on the unclassified details of deployment -- the everyday, the extraordinary, the wonderful, the messed-up, the absurd. All correspondence is read, and as much as possible is posted, lightly edited. If you know someone who is deployed who might have something to say, please tell them about us.

As many of you know, I’m a member of Bad Voodoo Platoon and I’m currently deployed in support of OIF. Over the last year several of us, including fellow blogger and Sandbox contributor Toby Nunn, have been videotaping our experiences. Deborah Scranton (director of The War Tapes) has made a film for PBS FRONTLINE called Bad Voodoo’s War that will be airing on April 1st.

I did take quite a bit of film myself and I do show up in a few scenes, but it turns out I’m pretty shy in front of the camera. Well, when God gives you dashing good looks and a 170 I.Q., it’s only normal that one would have a couple flaws... say like, the "inability to fly” and “shyness”. I mean, I'm only human. Although these 80-inch biceps of mine might disagree.

Here's a link to the Press Release for the program. And here's the trailer:

IQ 170? I'm really, really impressed. What's your shyness quotient, do tell.

Staggeringly handsome, and geeky smart JP did an AMAZING job filming and of course without him -- the film never would have happened to begin with! His cameo appearances I'm sure will be savored by many...
