Nate Fick speaking at DNC tonight
Retired Marine Captain Nathaniel Fick will be speaking at the Democratic National Convention tonight, between 7 and 8pm Mountain time. Nate wrote a book about his service called One Bullet Away, and as a First Lieutenant was commander of the Recon Marine platoon Rolling Stone writer Evan Wright traveled with during the initial invasion of Iraq. Wright's book, Generation Kill just completed its run as an HBO miniseries.

There's a lot scheduled in that hour, so I expect this to be short. With luck, someone will have it on YouTube tomorrow. In any event, if you haven't seen Generation Kill, you really should. And if you can spare the time, read the original book. It's very important to understand what it is we send people to do in our name, and the circumstances they have to work under.
