Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

I just finished watching a DVD, "SAINTS AND SOLDIERS", which is a movie about a Latter-day Saint returned missionary serving in the 101st Airborne during the Battle of the Bulge and the Malmedy Massacre.

Here is the web site URL where you can learn about the movie:

During the entire movie, they never once actually use the words "Mormon", "Latter-day Saint", or "LDS", but those of us who are active members of the Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints (i.e., the "Mormon" church) will instantly recognize the attributes peculiar to a returned missionary, and those of us who are Latter-day Saint military veterans will also recognize the familiar "Serviceman's Kit" issued to us by our bishop when we entered the Armed Forces.

The movie is based on true events, and the star of the show carries the same photograph of his grandmother that his grandfather carried during the war.

Another actor in the movie requested, and was granted, that the name of his character be changed to his actual grandfather's name, because his grandfather was in the Battle of the Bulge.

I had ordered two (02) copies of the DVD, one for myself, and one to donate to the Old Soldiers' Home, as this movie could be an excellent missionary tool.

The DVDs arrived in today's "snail" mail, so that's why I was able to watch the movie.

This film has also been shown on cable television's History Channel.

Rest assured that this film is clean enough for your whole family to watch together, and yet it has enough explosive violent bloody macho action that us guys can enjoy it.

Pass the popcorn, please.

Thank you.
