When American Sniper was released in theaters earlier this year, my husband and I went to see it right away.
Clint Eastwood’s Oscar-nominated adaptation of Chris Kyle’s autobiography is moving and meaningful filmmaking, depicting the heroism of both the service member in combat and the family left stateside.
It told a story we NEEDED to hear.
It is a story about the costs those on the battlefield (and their families) pay to defend our freedoms.
This is a subject near and dear to me. My brother is a veteran - a chaplain who served in Iraq on two different occasions. (In fact, he wrote a book, No Atheists in Foxholes, about his experiences there and as the chaplain at Camp David during 9/11.) I know firsthand the effects of war on our soldiers and the price a family can pay when one serves their country.
This week, American Sniper was released on DVD+BLU-RAY. Warner Bros. is donating a dollar from the sale of each DVD, up to $1 million, to the Wounded Warrior Project, whose mission is to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.
I am HONORED to have even a small part in helping raise money and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project.
I am also thrilled to be able to give away FIVE COPIES of American Sniper.

*I received a complimentary copy of this DVD from Grace Hill Media. I was not compensated in any way and wholeheartedly recommend the movie. It is rated R, and because of violence would NOT be suitable for young children.
