16 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i am martin pratscher, i was Richard Geres stand in in miles from home and also the movie miles from home. i hope you enjoy miles from home! i also played a young trooper in a small scene that was originally slated for Gary sinise to do but they gave the spot to me so i could get my sag card. i was 28 yrs old in 1987. it was a magical year for me and i will never forget the people, cast and crew and the wonderful memories of making that film.many thanks to Richard Gere for his polite and respectful appreciation to all he worked with.every time i see the film it takes me back to Iowa and all its beauty in a great time of my young life.............martin pratscher
