DVD Review and Giveaway: Faith of Our Fathers

As Veterans Day nears on the calendar, I am reviewing a film available on DVD that tells a powerful story of loss seen many times over during times of war, this one depicting during the Vietnam War as two soldiers are killed, leaving two young families on the homefront, each with a son who will never know his father.

"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.

  1. My grandfather is a veteran and we will celebrate by going out to eat

  2. My husband is a veteran and I will make one of his favorite meals (not sure which yet) and my Father is a vet as well (Operation Desert Storm)- I will give him a call on the telephone. My uncle who was killed due to doing foolish things because of his PSTD was a Vietnam veteran as well.

  3. It's actual that more PCs are delivery without CD/DVD drives, particularly in the classification of note pads. In any case, in this technique a bootable USB stay with a Linux picture on the circle can be valuable. For standard USB you can visit DVD Duplication Services
