  • SOS asking community to donate boots

    Jun 16, 2014

    It may sound strange to say that old basic training boots stuck in the back of the closet can help honor fallen service members.

  • Soldiers use filmmaking to heal, share stories in workshop

    Jun 16, 2014

    Sergeant Michael Rodgers, Charlie Company, Warrior Transition Battalion, lies unconscious in his bed at the Fort Campbell WTB barracks. His hand loosely grips a near-empty bottle of whiskey, and the bed is littered with empty prescription bottles. On his nightstand sits a solitary item -- a photograph of his Family. As he struggles for life, he unknowingly sweeps the empty pill bottles off of the bed and sends them rolling across the floor … "Cut!" shouts Sgt. Cory Followill, a medic with the 563rd Aviation Support Battalion, from his station behind the video camera. As he checks the footage for continuity with Sgt. Christopher Bober, Alpha Company, 1st Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, Rodgers jumps up, empties the apple juice from the prop bottle and prepares to change into his ACUs for the next shoot. The three Soldiers have been spending the week learning the art of filmmaking in order to bring their story -- the tale of a Wounded Warrior attempting suicide -- to life. They are part of a group of Soldiers participating in the I Was There Film Workshop, a four-day creative therapeutic program for Soldiers dealing with post-traumatic stress, developed by Benjamin Patton, grandson of famed World War II General George S. Patton Jr.
