Here is further information from, David Zeiger who requested we include the following information.
Hello Cindy and All,
I am so happy that you used episodes from our series, This is Where We Take Our Stand, for your Army Strong video. It's incredibly powerful, and getting out to a lot of people. You did a great thing with it, and this is what the series is for.
I have a very important request, though. Please make it much more clear on your site and in the piece that the material is from the web series This is Where We Take Our Stand, and that the entire series can and should be seen at http://thisiswherewetakeourstand.com/ There are still two episodes that will be posted this monday and in two weeks, and then the entire series will be available as a single piece as well.
First of all, it's important that people see the whole series. But along with that, it's been a tremendous struggle to get the story made and told, and we are still in the midst of trying to get the funds to complete a television film as well. So it is crucial that both the name of the series and the people who made it be very prominent whenever it is used. It's also important to include that it is from the people who made Sir! No Sir! I'm sure you understand all of this.
We are linking Army Strong to http://thisiswherewetakeourstand.com/, and will do what we can to help get it out there.
The testimony and video of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans shown here is taken from "This is Where We Take Our Stand," a web series that tells the story of the Winter Soldier Investigation held by Iraq Veterans Against the War. Watch and help spread the whole six-part series at http://www.thisiswherewetakeourstand.com. "This is Where We Take Our Stand" was created by David Zeiger (Director, "Sir! No Sir!") and produced by Displaced Films and Northern Light Productions.
