Worth your while
18 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a Showtime made for TV Movie, this film is quite good. It made the best of its actors, budget, and time constraints. This is not an epic... but it is a very touching story about three names on the wall. The song performed by Graham Nash was very moving. This war was very divisive to our society... the three main characters put a human face on the reality of war.

I read other comments that seem to pick apart the film... Yes it certainly can't compete with a major feature... but if you take the time to watch the film instead of looking for reasons to tear it apart...you'll probably enjoy it.
