Mike Francis at the Oregonian drew attention today to the fact that  Misha Pemble-Belkin, from Hillsboro, appears as one of the key figures in Sebastian Junger’s and Timothy Heatherington’s war documentary, Restrepo.

From Francis’ Op Ed column:

Pemble-Belkin and his friends never sought the spotlight, but he’s glad that “Restrepo” was made. “It’s not just telling our story,” says the now-24-year-old. “It’s telling the story of about everybody who’s been deployed.”

Pemble-Belkin, home from the tour of duty in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley, expects to be deployed to Afghanistan again.

I hereby claim Restrepo as an Oregon film, on the basis of the Oregon citizenship of Misha Pemble-Belkin, one of the soldiers profiled in the doc.

Thanks, and tip of the hat to Mike Francis.
