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.

My Review:
Faith of Our Fathers is an movie that can be enjoyed by those who like several genres of movies.  It's part comedy, part drama, part war movie and yet all about faith.  I found myself laughing on several occasions as the sons went through some pretty silly mishaps on their road trip, yet was anxious during the fathers' wartime predicaments.  I liked how the humor eased the tension as the story went back and forth between 1969 and 1994.  Throughout Faith of Our Fathers, God's love and mercy slowly emerges for both father and son 25 years apart.

I highly recommend watching Faith of Our Fathers!  A great movie to see with Veterans Day quickly approaching. :-)
