Yeah, I'll never forget the first letter I got from my wife. It started, "My darling, darling, darling, I'll never again use the word 'love' without thinking only of you." And I remember the last one I got from her. It started, "Dear T.J., this is the hardest letter I've ever had to write."

A frank, often painful film that explores racism during WWII
Home of the Brave, for its time, was considered daring as it brought racism to the big screen in a setting of war. James Edwards gives a sterling performance as Peter Moss, a Black man chosen to go on a dangerous mission with 4 white soldiers. The war becomes secondary to the characters and how they react to one another. Lloyd Bridges as "Finch" is excellent as is Frank Lovejoy as "Mingo". This is a fine effort and will keep you on the edge of your seat just watching the tensions rise and fall.
