Welles was a fun-loving person who enjoyed giving more than receiving. Viewers will instantly like him. Welles' identity became known because his survivors described being saved by a man wearing a red bandana in a May 2002 New York Times Article. His... Written by Matthew J. Weiss

True American Hero
14 September 2017 | by karianne-00917See all my reviews

This is such an inspiring documentary and a must watch for all Americans. My husband was a marine and was deployed often after 9/11. I wanted to find a story for my sons that focused on the heroism, rather than the terrorism. This documentary helps all of us to remember the pure good in our fellow man and how we should strive to live up to the character of Welles every day.
