Iraq War Heroes: Jeremy Shank

As I approach the one-year anniversary of my cousin Jeremy Shank's tragic passing in Balad, Iraq on September 6th (you can read about it, as well as learn a bit about who he was at the link above) his brother Chris Shank has been healing and expressing what his loss means to him through the writing and production of an original film that honors his family, as well as exhibit how his loss has affected him.

Southeast Missourian: March 16, 2007

"The Reservist": Official Trailer

It's titled "The Reservist", and after about six months of emotionally-charged production, a trailer has now been made available on the web via YouTube, which indeed made me cry over the whole two-and-a-half minutes, as the visualizations are very moving.

This production will be released next year, and I want to see to it this receives as much word-of-mouth as possible, so that Chris and all of his family knows how much we, as a nation, mourn his loss, but moreover will forever be immortalized with the deepest honor America has to offer him and all our young men and women in uniform.

Rarely do I ever take part in word-of-mouth campaigns, but I feel very strongly about this film getting out there and receiving the attention it deserves, and so I politely ask of y'all to share this teaser with your friends, and help make "The Reservist" and other patriotic productions like this seen and heard.

God Bless You All!



Love,
Noah Eaton

(((((Noah))))))  (((((Chris))))))  (((((Jeremy's Entire Family and Buddies))))))

Noah, I watched the trailer and Chris certainly has talent with filming.  Let us know when the final product comes out.  Being my son is a Reservist, this has special meaning for me, too.   ....jo

Poignant, knowing the circumstamces.
I saw the family resemblance in his photo, Noah, and could not help but whisper
I am so sorry....

I think this is a great idea and the filming is excellent...my only hope is that they put a bit more oomph into the actual trailer so that people really want to go see this film that deserves to be seen. Without knowing the story behind it, the trailer on you tube would not prompt me to go see the movie. I hope they revamp this a bit as I think this takes great courage to do

I gasped when I saw Jeremy's photo looking back at me. It was as though he was right there.

The resemblance to you is uncanny. This has been such a sad ordeal for all of you who loved Jeremy. He was so young. Mind you, he's probably having a better time now, than many of those he left behind.

I look forward to seeing the film in its entirety. Talent runs rampant in your family!

God bless you all!

I had missed one of your links the first time around.

I was amazed at what Jeremy had accomplished in such a short time in the army ~ and at such a young age! ~ 18 !!! ~ he even earned his corporal stripes!

"His awards and decorations include the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, the Operation Iraqi Freedom Expeditionary Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star Medal, the Expert Marksmanship Badge, and the Combat Infantryman Badge."

May he rest in PEACE,

With love and respect,

Linda
