Stop-Loss Phantom Comment

Not sure who posted and then deleted a comment for the 30 MAR post..I never saw it, BUT..

(1) If it was to say "How do you know about Stop-Loss if you've never seen it?" My response is that I read enough reviews to understand it to the point where I could write that.

(2) If it was to say "You don't know about PTSD issues, you don't have a Combat Action Ribbon" I would admit that's a fair point, but I am close enough to many who do to know that stereotyped Hollywood portrayals don't do them justice.

BUT if it was something else entirely, then who knows...

Blogger deleted my comment. Or was it DONALD RUMSFELD????

I was just throwing out a recommendation, for people tired of lame war movies: the HBO miniseries BAND OF BROTHERS and an old movie called THE AMERICANIZATION OF EMILY. The first sentimental, the second a bit cynical, but both very thought examinations of what heroism means...

Wordy. I haven't seen the Americanization of Emily but will look for it. You're right, Band of Brothers was amazing, from beginning to end.
