Jeff Key's "Semper Fi"
1 July 2007 | by topdown-2See all my reviews

Whoa! What a beautiful and sometimes sad story about a man whose love for his fellow man and his country are interwoven into a masterpiece of life. Jeff Key has done more to increase the prestige of the USMC than any poster or recruiter could ever do. Jeff shoots from the hip with no apologies. He is straightforward and leaves no doubt of his sincerity. He does a wonderful job of introducing us to members of his family and those folks who he regards as friends - both in his civilian life and members of the Marine Corps with whom he served. Here is a dedicated individual who just happens to be gay and does not let that interrupt his eagerness to serve and protect us. In the scenes of his interacting with the children of Iraq one soon learns of his honesty and willingness to offer them hope. We see war as it has not been shown to us before. Oh,yes, there is death and mayhem but there is also, in his mind at least, a reason of why he is there. I would urge every American to invest 90 minutes and absorb the various messages of Jeff Key's "Semper Fi". Thank you, Jeff. And God bless you.
