I've never seen this movie before. I like it. I bet my dad has seen it, no offense. It's a different take, rehabilitating after the war

To give a little insight into the award warrent that the elderly man reads. The Distinguised Flying Cross is the second highest award the nation offers for the Airforce.
The Army's is the Distinguised Service Cross and the Navy/Marine Corps is the Navy Cross. These awards are rarely ever given out and the recipients are almost always wounded severely when they earn them. The few people who have earned the Navy Cross in the Marine Corps are viewed almost as living legends and treated with the utmost respect.

If anyone is interested in one of our most famous Marine Navy Cross recipients.

These men and women who valiantly serve our country during WW-II are truley known as are Greatest Generation. The sacrifices, perciferance and dedication that they have made for our country can never be over stated. If you ever have a chance to visit the WW-II Memorial in DC., or even the State of Nevada Veteran's Home in Boulder City, this will help you begin understand what great Americans they really were.

This is a classic. I wonder what is was like to live back then when an actual war was going on. Those who served for our country, I give them a lot of respect.

Great example of communication not being in the words.

The actor who lost his arms won an academy award for his role in this film...he was a real war vet and had never acted professionally before. He later pawned it.
