One of the best documentary film that means a lot to us all
12 November 2013 | by (Kingwood, TX) – See all my reviews

I have watched this film on 11Nov13 at Minute Maid Park as a part of "Astros salute the Veterans" event, http://houston.astros.mlb.com/hou/community/salute_to_vets.jsp It was shown on a huge screen to thousands who were there, including 100 yr. young WW2 vet, Gary Morris; and our friend Andy Ferguson who is 92 yr. It was truly moving story, filled with lives of real WW2 vets and a small group of people motivated and devoted to help this program realized from a small town of Port Washington, WI. Those vets have been true role model of American soldiers who served, sacrificed, yet returned and quietly went back to start and raised a family, showing them in life what it means to be a true American. They should be our heroes, yet they humbly confessed that the true heroes were those who have died on the fields. I share this sentiment as my own from a different era. May we have lived ours worthy of their sacrifices; and may our children and grandchildren remember and carry on their legacies.

P.S. I was also privileged with watch the film with a good friend who happened to be a Korean War (yes, it was a war not just a conflict as some have insisted.) vet. Without his and others services, I wouldn't be here to express this gratitude.
