Wednesday at 7:00 pm EST

I posted this at The Peace Tree last week. I'm not sure if I'll be able to see the show this week but anyone else does, please let me know what you think of it.


IN THEIR BOOTS is a compelling new magazine show about the dramatic impact the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are having on us - the people here at home. The show will feature our Iraq and Afghanistan service men and women, and their families, in stories that have universal appeal.

Funded by a grant from the Iraq Afghanistan Deployment Impact fund (IADIF) and produced by Brave New Foundation, IN THEIR BOOTS will be streamed exclusively online.

In Their Boots will be hosted by Jan Bender, a veteran of the war in Iraq who served as a rifleman/combat correspondent in Iraq with 3rd Battalion, 1st Marines from 2004 to 2005.

Every week a live episode will be built around a dramatic and emotional IN THEIR BOOTS "Real Story," a non-fiction narrative about how our service people, their families, and their communities have been profoundly changed by the nation's campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan. Then, in a live forum, Jan Bender, our host, will interview the participants and lead a discussion that includes experts, service-providers and individual viewers in an interactive discussion of the issues raised.


  1. Pagan, thanks for posting this. I will start watching. And I urge you to visit Military Lies, which grew out of the film Sir! No, Sir!

  2. I missed the live webcast again. :-/

    I did look at the video shorts but with the discussion forum, I'm sure it's much more informative and interesting.

    Diva: I will check out Military Lies now. Thanks.

  3. Pagan, I watched Episode 2 of In Their Boots. Saw about half before I was interrupted. Very moving. I would like to put the website on my blog for others to see.

    Diva, I will check out Military Lies as soon as I can

  4. It's good that you brought this up. Our oh so wonderful corporate media seldom even mention the war on Iraq any more.


Thank you for taking the time to say you've been here.

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
