Blackfive National Geographic Exclusive - Restrepo footage of SSG Sal Giunta

Wanted you to know that the television premiere of Sebastian Junger and Tim Hetherington's acclaimed film, Restrepo, is on Monday, November 29 at 9pm ET/PT.

As you may know already, one of the prominently featured stories in Restrepo is that of Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta, who, on Tuesday, November 16, will be receiving the Medal of Honor for his heroism and valor during Combat Operation Rock Avalanche in Afghanistan. In honor of SSG Giunta, and of all veterans and those serving the country on this important day, the filmmakers have made available an exclusive, 14-minute video clip of SSG Giunta recounting the combat operation during which he dragged his critically wounded best friend, Josh Brennan, out of the hands of 2 insurgents who had captured him.
