William Matthews: [to son, Jeremy Matthews] ... I realize now that from this point of view, life is merely as long as a roller coaster ride at the County Fair. What I'm trying to say to you is, enjoy the ride. Always keep those eyes open, even right before the scary drop. Heck, raise your arms up high especially before the drop. Experience every single moment with every fiber in your body. That's why you bought the ticket in the first place...

Excellent Movie
8 October 2011 | by adickel1See all my reviews

I thought this movie was extraordinary, this tells a story of an extreme overcome of adversity and details the hardships that families of service members must endure. This is not a movie for someone who does not want to cry because even though I usually never cry from movies this one just struck a cord with me since I have family serving in the military and these can happen to them as well. This movie also has some amazing music in it as you will see if you watch it, very cool and I find myself listening to the soundtrack now as well. This is definitely worth a watch, its very good. I really liked the fathers lyrics they are very deep and have such deep meaning you would never expect from a movie.

Never forget our fallen heroes.
