- Interview an Army veteran brother of the pod, Justin;
- and other such stuff and things and stuff.
“Moral courage is the most valuable and usually the most absent characteristic in men.“ – General Patton
Notes & References:
A bomb suit can weigh over 125lbs, plus the helmet and breathing apparatus can add another 60lbs
The Hurt Locker shot heavily on the Canon 8-64mm T2.4 lens
Hurt Locker had a festival run throughout 2008 but had its official US release in 2009, thus qualifying it for the 2009 Oscars and confusing tf out of me
