A Very Memorable Memorial Day... I was very moved by Vanilla Fire's "Until They Are Home" which premiered Memorial Day at the DGA.   The well made documentary directed by Steven C. Barber  & narrated by Kelsey Grammer tells the poignant, eye opening story of work done by JPAC to find and identify remains of World War ll U.S. MIA's on the island of Tarawa located about 2500 miles southwest of the Hawaiin Islands  currently within the Republic of Kiribati.   Leon Cooper, 93, is featured in the movie and is one of the few remaining survivors of the battle of "Bloody Tarawa".  It was a pleasure to meet him after the screening and talk with his proud family.  He also appears in the doc "Return to Tarawa" another Steven C. Barber/Vanilla Fire production.  The film features Country Star Clint Black's song "She Won't Let Go" adding a nice touch..  The late Eddie Albert  also appears in the film - he fought in World War ll & saved the lives of many fallen soldiers at Tarawa...  a true hero.  Thanks to producer Tamara Henry for the invitation & kudos to the entire production team on a job well done!  Visit www.untiltheyarehome.com for more information on this very important, must see film.  HH(:
