Mark your calendars! First, for you Ft. Hood spouses, you may already know about the "Salute to our Heroes" event that will take place at Ft. Hood on April 11. The event is not open to the general public, only "Military and Family members, retirees, Gold Star Families, DOD civilians and contractors are invited to attend for free. More than 80,000 Soldiers, Family members and DOD civilians are expected to attend." Those of us not in the Ft. Hood area can watch the event courtesy of our friends at SyncLive, who will broadcast the event worldwide.
We'll get a behind the scenes look at the event this Thursday, when we talk with celebrity rock personality Metal Sanaz (a busy lady these days) and SyncLive CEO Aric Berquist on SBTR. Tune in at 9:00 p.m. EST by clicking here.
And for tonight....JP Borda, a good friend of SpouseBUZZ and a fellow blogger, will be one of the soldiers featured in a PBS Frontline documentary tonight. The film is called Bad Voodoo's War and was directed by another friend of SpouseBUZZ, filmmaker Deborah Scranton. I admire Deborah's work because she allows the soldiers to tell their own stories without editorial interference. I wrote a review of her first film, The War Tapes. Based on that experience, I expect great things out of tonight's film. Click here to check your local listings and find out when the film will air in your area. A preview after the jump:
