Coming home from his last deployment, Sgt. Major JOHN FROST arrives a month early due to a PTSD incident and is happy to be home for Christmas. He finds his wife, JILL and son JIMMY too busy to give him the welcome he anticipates. In his absence, they have adopted a dog - a little dog, CHARLIE, which is not his cup of tea. JILL, owner of JILL'S CAKES AND BAKES, has been struggling to pay the bills and has taken on too many holiday parties for her catering business, and forgets an important wedding. John finds solace with the fellow vets at the Moose Lodge until HANK, a retired Vietnam vet, is found by Charlie having suffered a heart attack and is then discovered to be homeless living in tented camp with CAPT. JACK. John finds his purpose as he rallies friends, family and community to build a new house for the vets and give them a warm Christmas Eve and a new start on civilian life.

Bringing the good out of everyone.
29 November 2020 | by taylorethan-72531See all my reviews

Charlie's Christmas Wish is a family friendly film about a dog named Charlie who not only helps bring her family together, but the town of Etowah together to help homeless veterans. While at times the film may seem all over the place as it covers the daily lives of the people of Etowah, it shows that everyone has problems that affect them from the homeless vets to even your next door neighbor. This film will make you appreciate what our vets and current military staff have done for this country.
