Brothers In Arms: The Farewell

I thought some of you would find this good viewing. These young men are barely older than some of you.

SReporter Jim Hagengruber will tell you all about Matt Shipp's deployment to Iraq in a 60-inch front-page story in Sunday's SR

Get the Flash Player to see this video.

Video Journal, the blog of colleague Colin Mulvaney, (along with photographer Brian Plonka and the Spokesman-Review) has been chronicling the military journey of Hauser Lake brothers Matt and Robert Shipp. In the latest Video Journal, Colin writes: "Since Matt and Robert Shipp have graduated from boot camp their lives have changed. Matt has grown from an Idaho kid to a well-trained U.S. Marine and now husband. Matt married Jessica in May, telling her three days before the wedding that he volunteered for duty in Iraq. This story tells of their love and Matt's commitment to his dream to defend our nation at war."
