October 3rd marked the 20th anniversary of the battle in Mogadishu, Somalia, which is chronicled in the best-selling book and movie, Black Hawk Down. U.S. Army Best Ranger Jeff Struecker survived the intense combat, returning last March to film a documentary. He had turned down many film offers, until this one, working with Cru staff member and video producer, Mary Beth Minnis.
“I wanted 3 things,” Jeff says about the movie. “First, I wanted a film that was gripping and gut-wrenching; I have no interest in putting lipstick on a pig. Second, I wanted a film that resonated personally with men – especially those who would never step foot in a church. And third, I didn’t want anyone to profit from the film.”
The nine-minute documentary, Return to Mogadishu: Remembering Black Hawk Down, was released last month.
