"Faith of Our Fathers" is 96 minutes in length and stars Stephen Baldwin, Kevin Downes, David A.R. White, Rebecca St. James, Si Robertson, Candace Cameron Bure, Scott Whyte and Sean McGowan. It is rated PG-13 for brief war violence.
The film weaves together the stories of fathers and sons and spans 25 years as two strangers, played by Kevin Downes and David A.R. White, form a bond when they discover a series of notes their fathers wrote to each other during their time serving in Vietnam. The letters lead the two sons on a journey to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. to see their fathers' names. Along the way, reading those letters, they begin to get an understanding of who their fathers were and how they died.
Here is the powerful video trailer:
The film moved me to tears time after time as the fathers are shown in the Vietnam War and their sons 25 years later as they are fighting their own inner conflict each trying to learn about the fathers they never knew. In doing so, it celebrates the spirit of our military veterans who have given so much in defense of our country and also is a salute to the spirit of the sacrifices of the military families on the homefront.
Special Features of the DVD include segments on "The Heart of Faith of Our Fathers", "Honoring Father's Day", "Commemorating Memorial Day" plus interviews with Si Robertson and Stephen Baldwin.
