The League of Grateful Sons - DVD

What is the godly legacy of the fathers of World War II? Their story has not been told - until now! "The League of Grateful Sons" is a wonderful drama highlighting the heroic lives of the heroes of America.

More than 406,000 Americans died during the Second World War, leaving an estimated 183,000 children fatherless. Hundreds of thousands of other fathers did return from war, some who tragically never connected with their children. But within the ranks of the survivors and the heroic dead were a remarkable collection of men who made it a life mission to speak the providences of God and the meaning of manhood to the boys who would fill their shoes. Through wartime letters and present-day pilgrimages to the bloody battlefields of their youth, the ancient warriors have spoken. Their thankful children rise to honor and surpass their legacy. They are "The League of Grateful Sons."

Meet tough-as-nails Marine "Colonel" Bill Henderson, and P-51 Mustang flyboy Bill Brown. Now in their eighties, these ancient warriors return to the black sands of Iwo Jima to disciple a new generation in the art of Christian manhood. Joining these men are sons whose fathers never returned - the Isacks brothers and "Johnny Boy" Butler - all heirs to a treasure trove of fatherly wisdom penned from the battlefield.

Shot on location on Iwo Jima, Guam, Hawaii, and in Texas, and directed by veteran filmmaker, Geoff Botkin, "The League of Grateful Sons" will leave you grateful for America's heroic fathers and motivated to surpass their legacy.
