While there are countless examples of heartwarming stories involving soldiers facing the harsh circumstances of war, there are far too many of these stories that do not get the attention they deserve on a grand scale. This is because film directors often opt for telling a story in which the protagonist is a complex character who is often questioning his role in the military or who must deal with moral issues that have no clear solution and only lead to intense feelings of regret.
One recent example is a film that debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival, but the stories that deserve more widespread attention are those being told by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. These stories accurately portray what it is like to be a soldier and tell the tales that are so frequently overlooked by the storytellers who have access to such a broad audience. Through significant effort, these feel-good stories are starting to garner the attention they so richly deserve so that more and more Americans can truly understand the entire story as it relates to the experiences of our military personnel who are serving our country in locations all over the world.
