    Veteran - themed film screening December 13 to 26 by New Filmmakers New York (FREE)

    From 12/13/2022 - 12/26/2022 a free veteran themed documentary (GI SAYS) will be available to screen online. For more info contact Camerado Media, [email protected]

     

    Hello NYC veterans:

    Here's a free veteran themed documentary (screening online as well) which may be of interest to your community; please find info below and at http://www.newfilmmakers.com/tuesday-december-13-27-online
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The GI Press documentary, GI SAYS, will be screening at New Filmmakers New York (Online & Hybrid) Christmas Program:

    Link to Screenings: http://www.newfilmmakersplus.com/

    ABOUT:

    ‘GI SAYS’ (aka, ‘Subterranean News’) is the incredible true story about the only known underground antiwar publication to be produced by an active duty soldier in a combat zone in Vietnam during the war.

    Veteran Ken Anderberg relates his experience serving on the front lines in the Ashau Valley, then later serving at Camp Evans near the DMZ during the conflict. It was at Camp Evans that he created and published the underground magazine – or ‘zine’ – ‘GI Says’ as a response, in part, to the controversial leadership of Col, Weldon Honeycutt at the recently concluded operations at Hill 937, aka ‘Hamburger Hill’.

    A $10,000 bounty was reported in the zine, with the target being none other than Col. Honeycutt himself. Discovery of the printed bounty in G.I. Says by military police nearly led to Anderberg’s long term imprisonment in a federal penitentiary – if not for a miraculous and lucky intervention! 
    Of more than 750 antiwar publications published worldwide at the time, ‘GI Says’ was the only publication to have been produced and distributed in a Vietnam conflict zone (near the DMZ) by an active duty person in uniform. ‘GI Says’ is a short #Vietnamwar #documentary movie by award winning producer and filmmaker Jason Rosette (http://www.linktr.ee/jasonrosette), maker of ‘BookWars’, ‘Freedom Deal’, ‘Lost in New Mexico’, and other compelling film and media projects

    Wreaths Across America: Cypress Hills National Cemetery (NYCHNB)

    On 12/17/2022 Wreaths Across America will be at Cypress Hills National Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY at 12:00 PM. For more information contact Wreaths of America and click the links below. 

     

    On December 17, 2022 at 12:00 pm, Wreaths Across America will be at Cypress Hills National Cemetery to Remember and Honor Veterans through the laying of Remembrance wreaths on the graves of our country's fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.

    If you are interested in participating as a sponsor or would like to volunteer in the wreath laying ceremony at Cypress Hills National Cemetery, click on the "Sponsor a Wreath or Volunteer" button below or visit Wreaths Across America for more information about the mission. 

    What does it mean to sponsor a wreath? It means you’ll honor an American hero at one of more than 2,800 locations nationwide this year on Wreaths Across America Day. Your sponsorship will ensure that a wreath is hand-crafted of all-American balsam and hand-tied with a red velvet bow here in Columbia Falls, Maine. It will then be sent to one of our participating locations, where a volunteer will place it on the marker of a fallen hero. That volunteer will then “say their name” to ensure that the legacy of duty, service and sacrifice of that veteran is never forgotten.
