This movie was incredible. I have never been in the service, but have had many friends who are in all branches of the military. This movie was so uplifting and had such a strong message. I have a teenage son, and I wished he would have watched.
The acting was superb. I felt what these guys and girls were feeling as they struggled to find themselves, their place in their unit, their inner worth and ultimately they were faced with a test that would make or break them. Could they do it?
Despite their backgrounds, they had to dig deep and learn to work together, learn to help others, learn ethnic tolerance and diversity and come to find out what "Semper Fi" means.
I hope this movie comes out on video.
