Following the Golden Arrow

Ben Atkinson, an independent filmmaker working with a fledgling producer and composer, is raising money to produce a documentary about the 8th Infantry Division in the European Theater during World War II.  Here's a short video about it as well as the link to the project kickstarter website:

The 8th ID "The Golden Arrows" are an untold story in the chapters of history. Some Army units (like the 101st and 82nd Airborne) had much better PR than others and so their story made it into the history books while others with no less interesting stories did not.  Personally, being the grandson of a silent veteran who served in this division, I hope the project will give me a better understanding of what he experienced during a time America will never forget.
