New movie, “Act of Valor” a must see, shows valor of the families and loved ones who serve too!

by | Feb 26, 2012

When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the valiant men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitment to country, team and their families back home.

‘Act of Valor’ uses active duty U.S. Navy Seals as actors. The characters they play are fictional, but the weapons and tactics used are real.

This movie is another example of the heroism and skill of US Navy SEALs and shows how the families sacrifice and serve too.  We need to consistently remind ourselves of what families go through while combat veterans are deployed and how they support and help our heroes when they return home; often suffering from symptoms of PTSD and other challenges related to deployment.  Short multiple deployments are typical among SEAL teams and present unique problems for families considering the high risk of the very dangerous missions showed in the movie.

A must see movie!
