Having debuted just in time for the 4th of July weekend, “Attack on the 4th” shows footage from the 2009 assault of an Afghanistan US military base on Hulu, Hulu Plus, and the All Warrior Network.
TV4 Entertainment’s military documentary runs over 15 minutes long and recounts an attack on Combat Outpost Zerok, featuring actual footage shot by Robert Ham, who also directed the short film. Ham served in the US army in Afghanistan and has since won two Emmys for his directing skills along with three Department of Defense’s Military Videographer of the Year awards.
The documentary follows the soldiers in the Able Company 3–509th Infantry, focusing on events that took place just after the disappearance of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl only an hour’s drive away. Bergdahl served with Ham in the US Army’s 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne) 25th Infantry Division before recently (and controversially) returning to the US.
In addition to Hulu and the All Warrior Network’s website, the film is available on the recently debuted All Warrior Network’s iPhone App, which can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.
Veteran-owned Musa Productions and Television Four Studios produced “Attack on the 4th.” It joins other original video content from Ham, Musa Productions, and TV4 such as “Fight for a Fallen Brother,” “Enemy at the Gate,” and “Level Black: PTSD and the War at Home.”
TV4 Entertainment serves as the parent network for the All Warrior Network. It is based in LA and includes channels such as DocComTV.
