“Restrepo” Airs Monday Night on National Geographic

Tonight, 25 April 2011, the National Geographic Channel will broadcast “Restrepo,” a documentary that chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley. The movie and outpost, “Restrepo,” are named after a platoon medic who was killed in action.

Tim Hetherington, one of the documentary film producers, directors and cameramen, was killed recently covering the conflict in Libya.

Billed as One Platoon, One Valley, One Year, you can learn more about the men here.
