A true hero of my time
11 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the honor of working with and for Mr. McNerney as a U.S. Customs inspector in the early 1980's and 90's. I knew of his Medal of Honor recognition, however did not know what happened when he received the Honor. I asked him one time and he told me he didn't do anything. He climbed in some trees, that was all.

A few years before his death, I was able to catch up with Mr. McNerney again and also had an opportunity to view this amazing documentary. After viewing it I realized that I had the honor of working with, for and knowing a true American hero.

Climb in some trees he did, however there was more than a little climbing involved.

This movie shows what a true American will do for his countrymen and for men who have placed their lives in his hands.

If you want to watch a movie that will make you laugh, cry and cheer, then you've found the right one.

Thank you Mr. McNerney for allowing me to be a part if your amazing life.
