Memorial Day, 1993. When 13-year-old Kyle Vogel discovers the World War II footlocker belonging to his grandfather, Bud, everyone tells Kyle to put it back. Luckily, he ignores them. Although Bud has never talked about the war, he finds himself striking a deal with his grandson: Kyle can pick any three souvenirs, and Bud will tell him the stories behind each one. Memorial Day not only takes us on a journey into Bud's complicated wartime past, but also into Kyle's wartime future. As the two men share parallel experiences in combat, they come to realize how that magical day on the porch shaped both of their lives. Written by
Kyle Vogel and Lt Tripp have a playful argument over whether corn is a vegetable or a grain but never arrive at an answer. In fact, both are correct. Corn is a vegetable because it is cultivated for its edible parts but it is also a grain because it is the dry seed of a grass species. See more »
At the end of the film, SSG Vogel is depicted as wearing a Combat Infantryman Badge (CIB), with a star on it. The star denotes a second award, meaning he would have had to have fought in the 1991 Gulf War (the criteria for the CIB does not award a second CIB for serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan), something he is far too young to have done.

You know, some people say we're different from other animals. I didn't used to believe it. Now I do. Wanna know why?
Young Kyle Vogel:
Because we can do one thing they can't. Kill at a distance.

This is a very well done movie, I highly recommend a viewing and purchase.
In the interest of full disclosure, I do know some "principals" involved with the making of this film, and was on location to watch a few scenes being filmed and met most of the cast.
With that out of the way. Seriously, what these people did, from a conversation, to an idea, from concept, to an LLC, bringing in the key actors, etc. They did not just "make a movie" to say "hey, we made a movie." With limited time, limited location, limited funds, they took a great screenplay which the actors obviously enjoyed, executed their performances to the best of their abilities. They followed through on the cutting room floor, with the Audio and with the Digitization. BEAUTIFUL!
Again, come full circle to the wonderful screenplay, and the performances of the Cromwell's. I loved the movie. I will own it and I will watch it every Memorial Day for my remaining years. Kudos to the entire cast/crew!
