Arion Pictures, LLC. and Go
Remote, Inc. Adventures …Not Vacations, have been recognized
with a national film award for their production of "Injury
Slight, Please Advise". The film is the accurate account and
reenactment of a WWII fighter pilot’s survival in the wilds
of New Guinea. The plane wreck is largely in tact in a very
remote swamp and has been seen by fewer than 10 non natives
since WWII. Steve Cushman, of Go Remote Adventures, was
featured in the film and served as guide and the logistics
coordinator for the filming that included hiking miles into
the jungles of New Guinea to film the rediscovered P-38
The feature length film, produced and directed by Josh
Baxter, was among those recognized with a Telly Award. The
Telly Award recognizes creative excellence in film and video
production, television programming and commercials, and
material produced for the internet. It is the largest and
most prestigious award of its kind, receiving entries from
all 50 states and 30 countries around the world.
"Injury Slight, Please Advise"
was among the top films selected from more than 13,000 world
wide production reviews and was shown at the Carnegie
Institute in Washington D.C. for the GI Film Festival
honoring American service members. A private showing was
previously donated in Huntsville, AL with assistance from
the Boeing Company and Monaco Theater in support of
Tennessee Valley Honor Flight. (The Honor Fight program
provides free charter flights to WWII vets to visit the WWII
Memorial in Washington D.C.)

Here’s a YouTube video clip of a past DoD recovery mission that demonstrates the
potential for a successful return of the remains of WWII
servicemen left behind. Although the odds for the bomber crew
are somewhat daunting, the potential for success is there, as
this prior effort demonstrates. The years of research and effort on this crew will,
at minimum, document all that is known about a “cold case” lost
crew despite limited, if any, official comprehensive search and attention to the hundreds
for lost crews in the years past. At minimum, our
mission is to accurately document all that can be learned about
the fate and loss circumstances of this crew and to pay tribute to them and the hundreds of similar crew
losses that have often not been thoroughly investigated. It is
the least we can do to honor their service.

Injury Slight, Please Advise is titled for the brief radio message sent
ending the 30 escape days in the jungle. It is an amazing, true account.
The accurately detailed WWII account of the New
Guinea jungle survival of fighter ace Capt. Charles O’Sullivan was
among the more unique of the nationally selected military related
films honored by the selection and showing of Injury Slight, Please
Advise, at a prior GI Film Festival in Washington, D.C.
The film’s account of Capt. O’Sullivan’s survival
including his escape from natives and the filming of his
rediscovered P-38 in the remote jungles of New Guinea was bolstered
by the presence of the Greatest Generation pilot himself. The
audience was impressed with O’Sullivan’s incredible survival account
as well as his quick wit in response to questions after the
showing. Our filming of an elderly native who recalled the incident
almost EXACTLY as told by “Sully” near the remote crash site was
also much talked about. The film is a solid reminder they are not
called the Greatest Generation for nothing.
The GI Film Festival, in Washington D.C. is dedicated to the
honoring the successes and sacrifices of the American GI. Past films
have included the military themed movies “Brothers at War” and
featured the recent HBO movie “Taking Chance”. Well known actors
involved with the GI Film Festival included Kevin Bacon, Tom Cruise
and Robert Duvall. Various Washington officials and dignitaries
Cushman and Baxter are also continuing their filming efforts to
research and document the MIA story of a missing B-25 bomber crew
known to have survived their crash landing in Japanese held New
Guinea. Their ultimate objective is to potentially verify enough new
evidence to cause the remains identification and recovery of the
missing American B-25 crew. Their research has already uncovered new
information and their efforts are the only comprehensive effort ever
performed to solve the mystery. Prior research has included visits
to Australian archives, areas of Papua New Guinea, DoD records in
Hawaii, veteran witness interviews and various other sources. Search
plans include returning to visit the wreck site in the wilds of New
Guinea. They are being assisted by the veteran pilot of
the crew until days before the loss in Japanese held New Guinea.
