‘No Greater Love’ documentary on ‘No Slack’ Battalion in Afghanistan to premier in Jacksonville

Posted

“No Greater Love,” a documentary on the “No Slack” Battalion in Afghanistan filmed entirely by a military chaplain, will premier in Jacksonville at the AMC Regency Theater Friday, Nov. 10, as one of a few select markets in the country.

“No Greater Love” is the first theatrical documentary filmed and directed by an active-duty soldier, and brings to vivid life the battles of the "No Slack" Battalion (of the famed 101st Airborne Division) in Afghanistan and back home. 

Most Americans are unaware that U.S. military chaplains carry no weapon, even in battle; and while deployed in Afghanistan, Army Chaplain Justin Roberts initially had no thoughts of making a film. But seeing the valor in battle of "No Slack," he asked, "What drives men to commit acts of courage and sacrifice?"  While winning decisive, strategic victories in intense battles, "No Slack" suffered multiple fatalities, and its members returned home with some 200 Purple Hearts.
