America’s Greatest Heroes

A Hero’s Welcome

I love historical documentaries. They really make history come to life. So much more than simple names and dates bound in a book for all eternity. Documentary films give viewers a glimpse into the real world surrounding the facts and figures. A Hero’s Welcome is a collection of 3 films that encompass the incredible sacrifices made by several of America’s unsung heroes. Many people do not have a clue what our military goes through to keep our country safe from harm. “A Hero’s Welcome” gives a glimpse into the lives some of those soldiers that put their lives on the line to keep us free.
