Even Signal Corp documentary of patriotic WW1 actions
11 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

This Signal Corp documentary and re-enactment presents a patriotic portrayal of the heros of the "Lost Battalion" of the 77th division. They were out of contact and relieved after 6 days of heavy fighting in the Argonne Forest during October 1918. The real hero is Bon Ami who received a Distinguished Service Cross for her heroism as a carrier pigeon.
