Max The Movie

July 9, 2008

My son Max who is in Morocco this semester was requited originally to be an extra for the movie, “The Green Zone” which is about the Iraq war.  He ended up getting a speaking part as a US military commander giving a pep talk to “his” troop before they go into battle to invade Iraq.
