Word about the entertainment liaison offices continues to spread – The Statist Quo podcast recently did a focus episode on the DOD’s film office, Phil Strub and the rewriting of movie scripts.

As always, the perspectives of military veterans who’ve actually been in real wars are profound counterpoints to the military-industrial dream factory that is Hollywood.
