      I remember going to the movies with my husband and father-in-law to see the movie Saving Private Ryan, starring Tom Hanks. I actually saw some old men with tears in their eyes having to leave the theater.

      The movie starts with this old man bringing his family back to the American Cemetery in Normandy, he kneels down in front of this grave stone and puts his hand towards his head as he is remembering the events of 1944. Capt. John Miller played by Tom

      Hanks are landing on 6 Jun 1944, onto Omaha Beach. The soldiers are facing devastating German artillery fire, you see bodies laying all around, one man is walking with his severed arm, very graphic. Then the camera pans down to some specific soldiers named Ryan, laying faced down on the beach. The movie then moves to the steno pool where the notifications are being typed for those families that have lost their loved ones. There it is noted that three names appear all ...

      • Ryan, all brothers all killed within a day or two of each other. The Army Chief of Staff Gen. George C. Marshall upon hearing that the Ryans have been killed within a matter of days decides that the remaining son has to be brought to his mother. Capt. Miller gets the assignment to locate and retrieve Private Ryan, He and his squad are sent on a rescue mission , they lose one member of their group and the squad begins to question the sense in
        saving one man when all of their lives are in danger. Was the one man worth saving.

        When they finally locate Private Ryan, and he learns of his brother’s deaths he tells Capt Miller, that he cannot leave at the present time because his brothers (fellow soldiers) need every abled body that can be located. In the end of the movie Capt Miller is shot and he pulls Ryan towards him to tell him to make his life worthwhile. A truly moving story
