Did You Know?

Goofs

After a wounded crewman dies in the woods near the landing site, the pilot yanks off one of the dead man's dog tags, causing the chain to break very easily, and the pilot takes the tag with him. This is a prevalent and erroneous Hollywood invention. Both dog tags always remain with a body until removed by Graves Registration personnel just before the body is buried. Otherwise, there is a risk of a body not being identified correctly. See more »

Best War movies that don't have Violence but share love
3 December 2017 | by popupjunkieSee all my reviews

I just wish Lindsey Stirling play that Violin once, the same song Clair composed, it would be the best moment. :) Thanks for sharing this story with the whole world, there's always hope in the saddest moments. It was just one of the most comforting movies I've ever watched. Gave me a whole new view about the world, and the things we do, to survive, to live, for love, for country. Linsey please do this.
