Something everyone should watch but ...
28 May 2019 | by jrneptuneSee all my reviews

I agree with the first review from joeytxx everyone needs to have an idea of what our soldiers are sacrificing and what motivates them to serve. It was great seeing in on Memorial Day though I wish I had seen it the day before.

The documentary focused on a wide range of topics and concerns but I felt it focused more on the negative and not some of the positive things gained from service.

I think it could have shown how families were impacted as well. Still giving it some thought and reflecting which is a good sign I guess. I would like to give it a solid 8 but for now something still has me giving it a 7. I might need to watch it again.
