i was listening to NPR today and heard a very interesting story...well its interesting to me. roman baca, a ballet dancer, joined the marines. he kept his past to himself; as you can imagine he was probably apprehensive to face scrutiny. he was deployed to fallujah in iraq for the war and eventually opened up to some of his buddies about being a dancer. when he came home he created exit 12, a dance company combining his love of dance and his experience in the war. read more about it here and here! fascinating and admirable.
