HonkWatch #082: Jarhead

The other day I watched Operation Homecoming, a documentary about a project helping soldiers to record their war memories. It was quite engaging, and featured American combat veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan talking about their experiences and reading their writing, interspersed with writer-fighters from previous conflicts.

One of the participants was Anthony Swofford, whose memoir of the previous American adventure in the Persian Gulf, Jarhead, was turned into a movie of the same name by Sam Mendes.

So here’s Jake Gyllenhaal as Swoff from that film, having his sand puke nightmare.
