The day after Veteran's Day, the Military Channel will be showing the documentary, "Tiger Mountain". (the name was supposed to be changed to Tiger Mountain, but the schedule still shows the production name) I think it is on most basic cable/dish packages. I will be in DC for Veteran's Day, and we (5/7 Cavalry Association) are going to have a screening of it on Thursday, after our dinner. Friday we will take a wreath to the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial.

MILITARY CHANNELíS COMMEMORATIVE VETERANS DAY PROGRAMMING INCLUDES:

FALLEN: BUT NOT FORGOTTEN Ė Saturday, November 12 at Noon ET

In October 1969, then-Lieutenant Mike Sprayberry received the nationís highest military award, the Congressional Medal of Honor, for his heroic efforts during a harrowing nighttime rescue in April 1968 in Vietnamís A Shau Valley. But over the four subsequent decades, Sprayberry has remained determined to find the six lost men from this mission and bring them home, returning twice to Vietnam in search of evidence to initiate a formal recovery effort by the U.S. Army. FALLEN: BUT NOT FORGOTTEN profiles the most recent trip to Vietnam by Mike Sprayberry, this being trip #4. Family members of the six men killed in action and their comradesí together share the loss and immense frustration but also the undying hope that one day these fallen soldiers may finally come home. This documentary is produced by award-winning CBS News cameraman Norman Lloyd and his foundation, the Commitment and Sacrifice Foundation. http://www.candsfoundation.org
