EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — An ex-Marine sniper now studying at Michigan State University has produced a video documentary dedicated to 25 members of a unit who were killed in fighting in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan War veteran Logan Stark is a senior in a professional writing program. The school says he and 2013 graduates Rebecca Zantjer and Lexi Dakin made the 48-minute video "For the 25" in an advanced multimedia class.

The documentary depicts members of the "Dark Horse" 3rd Battalion 5th Marines. It contains combat footage from Sangin, Afghanistan, and interviews with four Marines.

Stark attends Michigan State under the GI Bill.

The students condensed 10 hours of interviews and 100 hours of b-roll for the documentary. It has 15,000 views on YouTube as of Monday.
