"I've been a passionate supporter of our servicemen and women ever since my first USO Tour with Bob Hope," states Wynonna Judd. "I'm proud to partner with "The Hornet's Nest" film and Wingspan Portfolio Advisors to help raise funds for our worthy beneficiaries. I hope everyone can come enjoy an evening of music and support our troops."
In a joint statement, "The Hornet's Nest" Co-Directors/Producers Christian Tureaud and David Salzberg added, "It is truly an honor to team up with Wingspan Portfolio Advisors and Wynonna Judd for this private VIP screening of 'The Hornet's Nest'. We can't wait to give audiences this early sneak peak at this inspiring first-hand account of what's happening in Afghanistan. This film gives you a never-before seen look at the sacrifices, patriotism and dedication our troops face every day in battle."
"The Hornet's Nest" follows Peabody and Emmy Award-winning ABC News Journalist Mike Boettcher and his son Carlos Boettcher, who were armed only with their cameras when they were embedded with U.S. forces fighting on the front lines in Afghanistan amid the constant threat of the Taliban. The film unfolds a true story of survival for the soldiers, and for the father and son team who seek to re-connect under the most harrowing of circumstances.
