HOW IRONIC is it that the 75th Academy Awards corresponded with the start of another Bush-Saddam Hussein war? As a background actor who worked on over 40 films in Hollywood and who has served in the Marines, Army Reserve and National Guard,I do see some similarities. One example is the movie "Network," which showed how the media purposely shocked and awed the public to get higher ratings and ad sponsorship. As the new Persian Gulf war unfolds like a video game, we have to ask ourselves: If we don't see enough blood and gore, will we turn off the television?

Spec. Bryan L. Freeman Jr. was lauded yesterday as a dedicated son, a soldier of distinction, and a smart, disciplined man with a bright future in law enforcement. But it was left to his former wrestling coach to describe, perhaps most succinctly, the Army Reserve specialist from Lumberton, who was killed by sniper fire while serving in Baghdad on Nov. 8. Brian Bowker, who coached Freeman for two years at Rancocas Valley High School in the early 1990s, called him "a lifter, not a leaner.

Boot-camp workouts have been a staple of the fitness scene for some time now. Early boot-camp workouts were typically led by former drill sergeants and drill instructors. Today, some are led by fitness pros with no military background. Nate Griffin, who calls himself "Sgt. Nate," was a member of the Army Reserve for 17 years, where he worked as a medic and attained the rank of sergeant. While he was never a drill sergeant, true drill sergeants often whipped him into shape. During his years in the Army, he became an admirer of high-intensity Ranger training.
