The Sal Giunta Story

November 17th, 2010 by in Badassery, Videos

A 14-minute, uncensored account of Army Staff Sgt. Salvatore Giunta’s actions that were awarded with the Medal of Honor yesterday.

This clip is part of a feature-length documentary airing November 29th on National Geographic called RESTREPO.  The film’s synopsis:

RESTREPO is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley. The movie focuses on a remote 15-man outpost, “Restrepo,” named after a platoon medic who was killed in action. It was considered one of the most dangerous postings in the U.S. military. This is an entirely experiential film: the cameras never leave the soldiers; there are no interviews with generals or diplomats. The only goal is to make viewers feel as if they have just been through a 90-minute deployment. This is war, full stop. The conclusions are up to you.
