Faith of Our Fathers

John Paul and Wayne are two young men in search of  their fathers. Problem is... their fathers have been dead for 25 years. Eddie and Steven are two young men in search of their sons... whom they've never met. In 1969 Eddie and Steven are with their squad deep in the jungle of Vietnam on a five-day mission to retrieve fallen comrades. They write letters to their wives, often mentioning their love for their sons, one, who is an infant and one yet to be born.  In 1994, John Paul and Wayne go on a five day road trip to the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC 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. Trails and mishaps, both funny and sad, complicate the road trip for the boys. The horrors of war and the testing of faith manifest themselves for the young men in Vietnam. Ultimately, in parallel stories- 25 years apart- he fathers and sons are bound together forever.

My Review
This movie really touched me. Thinking back of my own father and grandfather who served but came home . Never in my dreams when I gave birth to a son know my so would be in a war. He was and was the scariest time of my life. By God's grace he came home. But their are so many who did not!! Men and women who go and fight for our Country to keep us safe. Terrible when you find it good and a blessing your son is hurt over their and gets to come home. It was a blessing to me.  I know my heart was in this movie and a great movie for all to see and think about what others have done for us. Where we here need to have their backs. What these two boys did to find out about their fathers and what fathers did to find their sons was a sweet story to the heart to find some kind of peace . Which they all did find. Sad yes but true.  God is there through it all. I loved scriptures being used in the movie this one stood out.
"Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. " John 15:13 ESV
 What these soldiers did they was their for one another and they was their for us. God Bless them all!! Tomorrow is Veteran's Day lets make sure we honor those from the pass and the future.

  1. My granddaughter is giving an essay at her school presentation this morning. She is telling about her greatgrandfather who received the Congressional Medal of Honor having served in Italy during WWII. He retired as a Colonel and served his country very well. She and one other student were chosen to do this. So happy for his service and her sharing the story.
