"Everybody Gets Blown Up"

Patt Dollard has a new trailer posted for Young Americans. It's something over six minutes long, interviewing the survivor's of an IED attack on what appears to be a LAV-25.

As always, Dollard doesn't pull punches or attempt to script what the Marines say, so the language is raw, and perhaps not safe for work. In addition, there is some mild gore, with blood shown on the LAV-25 after the IED attack.

Pat is also collecting donations for an injured Marine Lance Corporal Benjamin Hardgrove:

Well, the very first night we got back to California from Iraq, Hardgrove was hit by a car and has suffered extensive injuries including severe brain damage. He is 20 years old. His mother is a fighter who has done everything she can to secure the best medical treatment possible. Half of all donations to Young Americans Media this week will go to Hardgrove's medical fund, and I am beginning to work with his mother, Jaime, to have another fund set up exclusively for him by week's end.

If you're able to help out, the PayPal link is at the bottom of Dollard's main page.

Update: More about Hardgrove here.

I have heard quite a bit about Dollard's efforts.
I just watched some of the clips with my 14 year old son, who is thinking of joining the miltary when he comes "of age".
My father was a fighter pilot in 'Nam and I have the utmost respect for our folks that wear the uniforms of our miltary.
It absolutely sickens me to hear the liberal slant on virtually every story coming out of the battle zones.
Had to donate a little.
I figure every little bit helps.
It was quite refreshing to not have the liberal, whiny cry baby commentary!
Thanks for the intro!
