"Apache Warrior" Free Screening

Friday, June 22, 7pm - Bellevue University’s John B. Muller Administrative Building (lower level), 1000 Galvin Road South, Bellevue

Veterans and the public are invited to a free screening of the documentary, “Apache Warrior."

...Four nights into the Iraq War, a flock of overloaded Army Apache helicopters lifted up out of Objective Rams, an isolated outpost near Najaf, for an ill-fated mission against the Iraqi Republican Guard deep behind enemy lines.
They ran into what one pilot described to a Stars and Stripes reporter as a "wall of steel" when hundreds of fighters in a city below them opened fire with rocket-propelled grenades and AK-47s.
The 6-6 Cavalry pilots, whose grit and courage prevented a catastrophe, tell their story in the new documentary film "Apache Warrior.”  

The screening is free, thanks to Bellevue University's Military and Veteran Services Center.

The film puts the viewer in the cockpit of an Apache attack helicopter during the opening salvo of what would be one of the largest invasions in military history. It features gun-camera footage from the mission and interviews with Apache crew members and mission planners." It offers a glimpse into what it is like inside an Apache helicopter while in combat," said JR Richardson, the center's director. "Folks should come away with a renewed appreciation for the sacrifices our soldiers make to protect our freedoms."

 The film's co-producer, Joshua Lang, who was a 6-6 Cavalry crew chief, will attend the screening; so will Omaha World-Herald military reporter, Steve Liewer, a journalist who was embedded with the unit for the military newspaper Stars and Stripes.
