A new documentary is now in theaters nationwide. It features scenes from the front lines of the war in Afghanistan and interviews with the soldiers fighting it. The film’s director: the Army chaplain who was right by their side. His name is Justin Roberts, but in Kunar Province, bordering Pakistan during firefights and the two biggest battles of the Afghan war, he answered to the name “Chappy” for Chaplain Roberts. The Army allowed him to carry a camera there and though it wasn’t his intention then, the images and interviews turned into an acclaimed documentary, which made the list for Oscar consideration. It’s called “No Greater Love.”
FOX’s Jane Metzler talks with Justin Roberts about the film, his deployment to Afghanistan and the battle that veterans are fighting here at home.
