I give you "SWIM." This is a must watch for anyone who supports our troops and those who put their lives on the line for our freedom.
"Swim" - Documentary to help disabled vets.
Last year, two military members, David Broyles, a retired AF pararescue guy, and Rush Vann, an active duty Army Special Forces officer, became the 16th and 17th Americans to swim the Strait of Gibraltar. They did it as a fundraiser to help disabled veterans. Their journey from fundraiser to accomplishment was filmed, and will be released in a documentary named "Swim". Please check it out. It received rave reviews at the Jackson Hole and GI Film Festivals. Click on the link below:
On a personal note, I can personally vouch for both Rush Vann and David Broyles. Both are incredible men and watching them train in Austin, TX before the swim was an honor. This is a very touching documentary and after seeing it all come together I couldn't imagine what a wonderful piece of film and uplifting experience it would become. Please take the time to watch this film as I know you will love it. It may make the room dusty but it definitely will leave you feeling proud about our brave soldiers, both past and present. I have the pleasure of knowing everyone involved in this endeavour, and although I had no part other than support, I want to share it with as many people as possible. I thought ARFCOM would be the perfect place to spread the word.
Enjoy, and thank you for watching!
