Day 87 of training. Started two-a-days yesterday and it’s been 20 years since I’ve done anything this intense.
I’m emotionally, mentally & physically in the best shape that I’ve been since I shot The Fix back in 2005.
The Last Full Measure is the biggest project that I have ever been a part of in my 18 years of acting. I’m not only surround by the best in our business but these are legends in the film world. I’ve work with a few of them before but this many, all together? When we were shooting in ATL this past April, I was in awe of how incredible the performances that were being delivered. How talented our writer and director Tood Robinson is and this incredible story we are telling. What are responsibility was to the actors who delivered these incredible performances based upon their passion for telling this story. We must deliver equal to if not better performances in Thailand. We have no other option.
I look at these past two years and all that I had to experience to get me to this exact point in my life. I’m so grateful and humbled for everyone and everything that touched my life in both a positive and negative way. It only made me stronger. It helped me identify who and what I want in my life and what I truly wanted for my time on this planet. Through the darkness, I found the light. And because I never quit, gave up or was defeated, because I stood strong with my morals and ethics and because I have the core group of friends and family that have shown me what unconditional love is, I made it. I survived and I’m ready to tell help tell William H. Pitsenbarger’s incredible acts of heroism. My eyes are focused. My hands are steady and my heart is open.
