    A frequently used title ...


    he First Cavalry Division came under surprise attack in Sadr City on April 4, 2004, now known as "Black Sunday." On the homefront, over 7,000 miles away, their families awaited the news for forty-eight hellish hours-expecting the worst. ABC News' chief correspondent Martha Raddatz shares remarkable tales of heroism, hope, and heartbreak.

      Actually, it is linked to the book mentioned above, takes place in Iraq, Sadr City, April 2004. Was just discussing this with my oldest son, today. Some of his fellow troopers advising and (acting? ) in it, others find that even to view will raise more PTSD than they want to deal with.

      Agreed, a rather interesting topic for National Geographic.

      BTW, Col. Volesky is now General (3-star) Volesky.

      FWIW, we don't do Cable or Dish etc. so may have to wait for the DVD.

        I've been watching it. Good show. I think that's the first time I've seen a Bradley in cinema.
