This is the first movie I ever made with iMovie so please don't judge me! In this movie I have compiled all the video and still photos we took at Miles Holladay's Army Basic Combat Training Graduation on August 19, 2010 at Fort Leonard Wood.
The slow motion clip in the middle was taken when Miles was marching in formation from the graduation hall to Dragoon Park--he was not supposed to divert his gaze or smile but he did both when he saw Lorelei Decker.
I used Metallica's "...And Justice For All" as the background soundtrack because it is Miles' favorite. In some places it was a bit eerie how perfectly the music lined up with the images in the video. (Notice the music during the display of the lovely woman with the bleached blond mullet--she is in the foreground of the shot where I was trying to picture Hannah, Gretchen and Lorelei standing against the wall for the ceremony.)
There were 266 Soldiers who graduated. They were divided amongst four platoons. Miles' platoon was the 2nd platoon. Miles will begin AIT at Fort Leonard Wood next week. His MOS is 88M (Transportation.) He and Dustin joined the Army on the same day as battle buddies and had hoped to go through all of this together but Dustin's injury caused a delay for him. Dustin is grateful for Miles who led the way through Basic Combat Training and shared invaluable advice with him.
Dustin and Miles will overlap for about 1.5 weeks at Fort Leonard Wood during their AIT. Then, once both have returned to Oklahoma they will serve monthly Army National Guard Duty together.
The video was loaded to YouTube in two formats: HD and mobile. Here's the HD link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-GodHgKgIQ.
