Faith of Our Fathers ~ Movie Review + Giveaway

My Review:

Two men take an unexpected road trip together to the wall, to see the names of their fathers who served together in Vietnam. But neither of them could have guess how it would change their lives forever.

An uplifting movie about faith, family, and our troops. John Paul is about to be married and has questions about his father, so he calls up his father's old friend, but ends up reaching his son instead.

To say that John Paul and Wayne were instant best would be a far stretch, even for the most spandex-y yoga pants on the market, in fact I wouldn't be exaggerating to say that shots were fired. But as they travel together they read their father's letters, and get to know their fathers in a completely new way, and see how their faith carried them through a war.

Well told, a way that blends the past and the present timelines, Faith of Our Fathers is a film that you will want to share with your family and friends. A well done and powerful film that really does a great job of showing the power of faith, as well as the bond between fathers and sons.

About the movie:
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.  Trials 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 - the fathers and sons are bound together forever.
