Stop-Loss (2008)


Category : Government, Music and Movies

Stop-Loss - the involuntary extension of a service member’s enlistment contract in order to retain them beyond the normal end term of service (ETS) or the ceasing of a permanent change of station (PCS) move for a member still in military service.

Stop-Loss - a 2008 American drama film, directed by Kimberly Peirce. Starring Ryan Phillippe, Channing Tatum (Step Up), Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Timothy Olyphant (Hitman). After doing their time in Iraq, soldiers are caught in the Stop-Loss program and forced to go back to war. Quite an emotional movie, meant to draw attention upon this practice. Out of more than 600.000 soldiers sent to Iraq, more than 80.000 have been stop-lossed, by presidential order.

I find this practice a big bullshit!

The movie is definitely worth watching!
