While I continue to read some articles that “The Hurt Locker” wasn’t true to form as demolition unit, I for one, am very excited that it won 6 awards, including best film and best director.

However Hollywood might not have authentically depicted military protocol, I still think that the film does show the psychological impact of war on our veterans.  I am glad that the public gets to see what our soldiers have to go through to fight these wars! To see what I wrote about post-traumatic stress disorder and the undeserved social stigma put on veterans, go to the posting of Feb. 8, 2010.

Congratulations also goes to the director, Katharine Bigelow, THE FIRST WOMAN DIRECTOR to ever win the Oscar! I think she did a fantastic job in portraying what happens to our men at war.
