15 months of reporting

[video:youtube:N3_ZKBwv3V0] Mike Boettcher, ex-CNN, NBC, Peabody award winning journalist, is heading to Iraq and Afghanistan to report on the soldier's stories. He'll be out there for 15 months and will file all his work to the web on a site called NoIgnoring. He says he'll make all the material free for news networks to use as they see fit. Not only that, but he'll be going with his 21 year old son. Learn more about the venture in the video above,
“We have 200,000 U.S. men and women in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Persian Gulf. The U.S. has seemed to have forgotten about them. We talk about the war, but we’ve forgotten the soldiers and what they are doing,” Boettcher said. link
