Not A War Story To Fill Samuel Goldwyn Theater
GallantFew is insanely honored that RangerUp chose GallantFew as a donation recipient of their ‘Not a War Story’ documentary world premiere. Equally exciting is the opportunity to help RangerUp pack the 1,012 seat world-class Samuel Goldwyn Theater with Veterans. Buy tickets to personally attend through this link or sponsor Veteran tickets here.
Not A War Story is a feature length documentary about the military veteran community, their aspirations and the craft involved in the making of Range 15, an independent narrative film that is produced by military veterans. To the casual observer, Range 15 appears to be nothing more than a bawdy, slapstick satire of Hollywood zombie apocalypse and military films. However, to those serving in the armed forces, the film is rife with inside jokes and jargon, and perhaps a resounding reclamation of Hollywood portrayal of military life and community.
Starring Hollywood actors and Medal of Honor recipients alike, Not A War Story, offers an inside look to why being a part of Range 15 was so much more than zombies and gore, and through community support inadvertently became the most decorated movie in history (2 Medals of Honor, 1 Navy Cross, 2 Silver Stars, Over 30 Bronze Stars and Purple Hearts). This is a film whose back-story includes a lot of heart and a lot of heroes.
The Power of Filling Samuel Goldwyn Theater
GallantFew boldly supports and coaches Veterans through five core functions of response-ability. Here you can learn more about the GallantFew’s functional fitness theory. One core function is the importance of social fitness. Are you asking yourself how filling Samuel Goldwyn Theater applies to social fitness? Let us better explain.
There are countless paths a person can take to show and grow personal social fitness. Growth can be through enhancing a social network. It can be by committing to a higher engagement level when in public. Honestly, the list can be endless.
The making of Range 15 was a phenomenal exhibit of social fitness. Let us show you how:
- Veterans and civilians came together to do something that had never been previously accomplished
- The leaders of the Range 15 and subsequently Not a War Story movement are average everyday people
- The movement inspired thousands of supporters to enable the growth of ‘something’ from ‘nothing’
- The movie Range 15 and now the documentary Not a War Story are examples that anyone can dream big and achieve his/her goals through consistent effort
By filling the Samuel Goldwyn Theater with Veterans the following can and will happen:
- Veterans and civilians of all backgrounds will come together in unified support and triumph of a Veteran led historical initiative
- Veterans who attend will exercise the power of convening face-to-face
- New friendships will be made
- Networking will occur
- The Veteran community will show collective unity in celebration
This opportunity is for everyone
As we mentioned above, proceeds from Not a War Story ticket sales will go to GallantFew. Equally awesome is that Article 15 chose our friends at Warriors Heart as the other charitable recipient. Warriors Heart provides private treatment to adult men and women 18 and older who are seeking inpatient treatment for chemical dependency, alcohol abuse, and co-occurring psychological disorders relating to PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)or the psychological effects of MTBI (mild traumatic brain injury).
