Everyone Should See This Film! A Great Tribute to Our WW11 Veterans

10/10
Author: Dar Christianson from Washington- DC
10 December 2012

I had the great opportunity to view the film " Honor Flights" Dec 7th at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington- DC. This film gave a very good background on the creation of Honor Flights and then featured some well deserving WW11 Vets who shared some of their stories with all their humbleness and humor. I felt proud, with immense emotion and I felt grateful for this GREATEST generation of men and women who when the call came to defend their country for our freedoms- they and their buddies signed up at the front lines- They were unlike any young man of today- they smoked and joked, chased women and wanted a shiny car. They gave everything they had without complaining and lost so much- they came home and moved on with their lives- marrying and having families and happily lived along amongst some terrifying memories. This movie gave these guys a chance to feel like the stars that deserve to shine far brighter than that anyone from Hollywood ever could. This movie gave them a chance to tell some of their stories and to feel special. I highly urge parents to take their children, grandparents to take their grand kids- This movie is a must ! Freedom isn't free and these guys gave it all for ours... Let's show them how grateful we are! I

One of the best documentary film that means a lot to us all

9/10
Author: Yup Kim from Kingwood, TX

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.
