Movie Review --- Memorial Day

Do you ever run across a nice little movie that really affects you, just out of the blue.  Never heard of it before, never saw it advertised anywhere, but just stumbled on it?  That happened to us this past week....a little gem of a movie that will make you cry your eyes out.
We watched this move, Memorial Day, on Netflix this week...such a perfect movie about the "greatest generation".  Grandma and Grandpa are watching the three grandchildren out on the farm on Memorial Day when the oldest boy (about 13 years old) finds a footlocker out in the barn.
He drags it to the house and, despite being warned not to by his Grandma, he asks his Grandpa about the things that are in there....and the stories that follow weave a thread between the past, the present and the future of this young boy.
So good...John and I were both quite affected by it.  If you can find it, do yourself a it.  If you are interested in WWII at all, about the reluctance of our parents to talk about their time in the war, or how war affects the soldier, WATCH IT!
