November 13, 2009
Charlie Waters has just completed editing a multi-part series on Valor as it applies to our servicemen and women at war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The 54-part series started Sunday and you can read the stories of heroism at

Charlie adds, "We will add stories of the six Medal of Honor winners on Sunday, then start adding one new profile of a medal recipient each day to the site next Tuesday through the end of the year. Eight stories are already on the site."

I checked out one of them yesterday, the story of Michael David Carter, a photographer who got caught in one of the worst firefights in the long Afghan war. I had tears in my eyes reading it. And you can click on a video version where he tells the story himself. Amazing stuff and it should be required viewing by every American.

Also check out Allen Barra’s article on the first football game, including info on John Clum. It's called The First Down, Ever

Just got word from Allen Huffines that the Coen Brothers next flick, True Grit, has landed the following casting: Matt Damon as LeBeouf (Glenn Cambell), and Josh Brolin as Ned Pepper (Robert Duvall).
