Flags of our Fathers

Since I am fascinated with war movies this caught my eye. Even though I was drugged up in the hospital I saw them talking about this on Fox News. The movie "Flags of our Fathers" is supposed to open up in theaters this friday, October 20th.

It is directed by Clint Eastwood and is based on the book with the same title by James Bradley. Bradley's own father, John "Doc" Bradley, was one of the men who lifted the flag at Iwo Jima. Here is a short clip about the book:
"The #1 National Bestseller!
In this unforgettable chronicle of perhaps the most famous moment in American military history, James Bradley has captured the glory, the triumph, the heartbreak, and the legacy of the six men who raised the flag at Iwo Jima. Here is the true story behind the immortal photograph that has come to symbolize the courage and indomitable will of America."

I look forward to seeing it!!
