    You are the only active duty wife who is so honest and who shares these things with me. I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. Your husband's commander sounds like my husband... they just can't believe that other commanders aren't being honorable. Tracy, how are we going to get through to them? Nothing is going to change we can't make them see the problem.

      open up the floor to fixing what is broken.  We need the film :)  Release the film :) If they'd sell me a DVD for a couple of $100 we'd pay it gladly, even if they would only allow us limited showings.  I would turn one showing over to my DOD civilian girlfriend who is an organizer extraordinaire and my husband already has a room full of officers wanting to see it.

        some copies.

        I know they have it scheduled through August in some cities. I figured it we could get copies to send out to the OSC's by early fall, they would schedule to watch it by late Spring. If they watch it. But once they have the video, someone will take it home and watch it, won't they? You'd have to be really cruel to watch that film and then not want other people to see it.

          They will watch it, lots of them.  They don't like having anyone else do their debriefings and accessing their performance :)

          One of the things that I don't like, the denial builders and building that many are doing before seeing the film.  I know it is painful and it is human nature on a certain level, I hate having to wait until many of them have scorched all self doubt before we all sit down to watch it together.  There is a healthy amount of self doubt out there right now, I'd like to take advantage of that while the getting is good.  Look at the battle tactics and skills they've taught me :)
