Group video project for our Agitation Propaganda class, Fall quarter 2012. The subject is questioning the use of the slogan "Support our troops", how it makes people feel, how it is seen in the media, and if it holds meaning. The trick was compiling our message into a five minute video. It was challenging to decide what made the cut, but it was also exciting to find the best words to express what we're trying to say.
In order of appearance:
David M. - Active military
Audrey M. - Army wife
Sean M-D. - Civilian
Trevor K. I. - Veteran
Charles L. - Civilian
I recorded myself playing Taps for the end, and the footage of the flag is also from War Memorial Park in Tacoma.
As a side note, it really is a beautiful park with a great view of the Narrows bridges.
Thank you for watching! I hope that this video can create discussion over the matter. No one is looking for a fight over this. We just want to see an active discussion on the matter because we feel that it is not fully addressed as such in the news.
