This is a life changing film.
13 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How do adults and their children learn to honor the military? By watching films like "Flag of My Father", we get a glimpse of the enormous sacrifices that create both trauma and, if they are fortunate, depth of fullness and meaning in a soldier's life. Where would we, as a country, be without the millions of Americans, past and present, who have made such great personal sacrifices to keep us free? One of the things most Americans don't know about is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the deep damage and difficulty it can cause in these heroes. "Flag of My Father" gives you and enlightening yet gripping look, then goes farther to prove the hope for healing, healing not only from the ravages of war, but also from the emotional difficulty that can become family life. This is a great story that needed to be told. Everyone in America should see this movie.
