I remember seeing this movie in theatres when it came out and it had such a profound impact on me, it is an incredibly honest portrayal of a true American Hero. To have the chance to go see it again in theatres is fantastic, especially to celebrate the veterans.

We thank you for keeping us safe and free, we could not do what we do without you, and so thank you.
