Veterans Day 2009

It has recently occurred to me that, since being out of the military, I’ve never once had a Veterans Day off that I can recall. Sure, I meet some other local vets at Golden Corral the Monday before or after (is it me or does the free buffet taste better than the pay-for version?) but I usually have to work that day (and I’m thankful that I’m able to, too.)

Anyway, if you love being able to pursue your passion, better your circumstance, or just sit on your can and watch television, thank a vet… that’s why you still even HAVE a choice.

    Hello!

    In honor of Veteran’s Day, Cinetic FilmBuff is streaming 3 great films online, and all for free!

    UNFINISHED SYMPHONY is an emotional, poetic, and lyrical journey back in time to reflect on the highly contested Vietnam War. The film focuses on a three-day protest in the form of a march, staged by newly returned veterans. Reversing the same path as Paul Reveres famous ride of 1775, the mounted protest sought to bring renewed awareness to a long-fought, losing battle. You can watch this film on Snag Films (http://www.snagfilms.com/films/title/an_unfinished_symphony/).

    JERABEK tells the tragic story of U.S. Marine Ryan Jerabek. Beyond politics, headlines and statistics, JERABEK offers a candid, personal look at the toll the war takes on our the friends and family of America’s brave troops. You can watch this on Hulu (http://www.hulu.com/watch/107775/jerabek).

    WHEN I CAME HOME examines the issue of homeless U.S. military veterans-from Vietnam to Iraq-who have to fight tooth-and-nail to receive the benefits promised to them by their government. You can find this film on both Snag Films (http://www.snagfilms.com/films/title/when_i_came_home/) and on Hulu (http://www.hulu.com/watch/107776/when-i-came-home).
