MSU student produces documentary dedicated to casualties of Operation Enduring Freedom
In October 2010, the 3rd Battalion 5th Marines deployed to Afghanistan. They were sent to relieve the British Royal Marines in the southern Helmand Province, a hotbed of insurgent fighters and IEDs.
Twenty-five Marines in the 3rd Battalion 5th Marines did not come home.
One of those who did come home went on to become a student at Michigan State University. Former Marine sniper Logan Stark is now a senior in MSU's Professional Writing Program.
As a class project, Logan formed a three-member team that produced a documentary called "For the 25" dedicated to his fallen brothers in the "Dark Horse" battalion, which suffered the highest number of casualties in 2010 during Operation Enduring Freedom.
Logan Stark joined us in the studio today.
You can watch "For the 25" below.
Listen to the full interview above.
