War Dogs - Documentary Film

On Veterans Day, we thought it would be appropriate to shed light on an issue that is often overlooked in today’s society - Veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Did you know that 22 veterans take their own lives every day?

Last week, Chicago director David Huzieran released a documentary called War Dogs.

War Dogs is a short documentary film that follows the lives of three veterans who are coping with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and/or Traumatic brain Injury through the use of their service dog. 

This is a truly eye-opening documentary which highlights an amazing, life-changing program. Please take 15 minutes to watch it, and if you are inclined, share it with your friends, family, and social networks. 

For more Information or to donate to the organization featured in the film, please visit WarDogsMakingItHome.org

A Public Land Wedding for Marine and Daughter of BLM Employees!

In celebration of Veteran’s Day, the BLM would like to recognize Lance Corporal Anthony Hieberg and his new wife Kelsey who were married on public land in May north of Malta, Montana. Kelsey and Anthony met as freshmen at North Dakota State University before Anthony joined the Marine Corps. 

The wedding was a small affair of less than 15 close family and friends. The bride’s parents, Thora and Fritz Prellwitz, work at the BLM Malta Field Office

Since news of the wedding got out, the Malta Field Office has received many more requests for weddings on public land. We honestly can’t think of a better place to hold such a great event. 

(Note: While small weddings like Anthony and Kelsey’s do not need a Special Recreation Permit, couples thinking of holding large events should contact their local field office and obtain a permit.) 

The entire BLM Montana/Dakotas wishes to congratulate Anthony and Kelsey, thank them for sharing this special day with us on their public land, and thank Lance Corporal Heiberg for serving his country as a Marine.

I was wondering if there are any tutorials on internal organs? Like, how to draw each and every one instead of something out of a biology textbook. I couldn't find any really good ones. Thanks!
