I am  writing to highly recommend the above mentioned documentary to all of you. - You will not be disappointed. This is a MUST SEE for the entire family, especially teenage school students. Sadly we are losing upwards of 800 or more WWII veterans per day. The WWII memorial was completed in 2004 - It took 60 years to build a memorial to honor them.  The documentary deals with the escorting of WWII VETERANS to see the memorial in Washington D.C. at NO COST to the individual. It tells the stories of veterans Joe Demier and Harvey Kurz. Joe was pictured in Life Magazine as "The Human Skeleton" upon his liberation  from a German POW Camp. Days from death, He weighed just 70 lbs. Harvey, saw our flag go up at the Battle Of Iwo Jima; Unbeknown to the shoppers He bags groceries at the local Pick N' Save. As a result of this documentary Honor Flight Organizations now exist and more are being formed all over the U.S.A. If you would like to get involved, please visit www. honorflight.org  also visit www.stars and stripeshonorflight.org.
