We have two big showings of the Honor In the Air documentary coming up this month, and we are very excited. We love sharing the story of Vietnam War helicopter pilot Captain Scott Alwin, his family, and the men with whom he served.

On Friday July 12, we will show the film at the American Legion Wisconsin 105th Department Convention in Appleton, Wisconsin. Members of our team have attended several American Legion Wisconsin conventions over the past few years to talk to Veterans and let them know about our project. Legion representatives and Vets in general have been very interested and supportive of our project, and we look forward to returning and showing the completed film (with popcorn) after the convention's morning session. Read more in the latest issue of the Badger Legionnaire.

On Saturday July13 you will find us at the Red Cedar Film Festival in Menomonie, Wisconsin. We are thrilled to be a part of this festival and have our film shown in the beautiful Mabel Tainter Theater. It is always so special to see our work on the big screen with a diverse audience, though we do hope that we will have several Vets and military families in attendance. Honor In the Air is immediately followed by another documentary, The Weight of the Crown, about a police officer and his heroic struggles after a life-altering injury. We will be there to do a Q & A immediately following the screenings. You can see both films for $10. You can find more information and a link to purchase tickets here.

If you've already seen the film, we'd love to hear what you thought. You can record a short clip on your phone and email it to us, or send us your written thoughts via email using the contact form on the homepage. These comments may help us as we are considered for other film festivals.

If you'd like to set up a screening of the film for a high school audience (fits well with social studies unit on the Vietnam War), please get in touch with us. We are also open to discussing presentations for other groups of over 40 people.

Thanks for your ongoing interest and support! We appreciate you.
