World Premiere Of The Documentary Short, Horse Soldiers Of 9/11 By Veteran War Correspondent, Alex Quade To Be Screened At The Prestigious GI Film Festival On May 20th, 2012

PR Newswire

Narrated by award-winning actor Gary Sinise, Horse Soldiers of 9/11 is the story of the first American troops on the ground in Afghanistan after 9/11.

WASHINGTON, May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- GI Film Festival Organizers have announced the world premiere of the documentary short, Horse Soldiers of 9/11 by veteran war correspondent, Alex Quade will be screened at the prestigious GI Film Festival 2012 at 6:45 PM on Sunday, May 20th  at The Naval Heritage Center, 701 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest, Washington, DC 20004.

War reporter Alex Quade has made a career out of "going to bad places" as an embedded reporter.  In body armor, helmet and anti-ballistic eyewear protection, she has covered U.S. soldiers in war zones around the globe including Iraq and Afghanistan.  Extreme storytelling and silent risk-taking lie at the heart of what she does.

It was in her capacity as a war reporter that Alex tracked down the elite commandos who first rode horses into Afghanistan after 9/11. Those secretive teams of U.S. Special Operations Forces, including Green Berets, Air Force Special Operations Combat Controllers and CIA Operatives, shared their stories with Alex.

It was the news the world breathlessly waited for immediately after the 9/11 terror attacks:  a report of the first American troops on the ground in Afghanistan. All at once, the world's attention focused on an iconic photo of small teams of U.S. Special Operations Forces doing something no American military had done in nearly a century:  ride horses into combat.  That photo would go on to inspire an artist to sculpt an 18ft tall monument at Ground Zero ten years later. 

The courage of the first into battle is what guarantees the courage of those that follow: "Horse Soldiers Of 9/11"...a film by war reporter, Alex Quade and narrated by award-winning actor Gary Sinise.  Tickets are available at http://gifilmfestival.com.
