Movie of the Month for August

Troops, your viewing assignment for the month of August is to watch The Greatest Beer Run Ever.

At a time when the Vietnam War was at its height, one man, John “Chickie” Donohue, snuck back into the war zone to find his 3 closest friends and buy them a beer. Crazy or caring, Chickie gave his friends more than beer, he gave them hope. Hope that helped each one safely return home when the war was over. 47 years later, the group was reunited to relive the greatest beer run ever. Produced by Makuhari Media and Pabst Blue Ribbon.

After you watch the film, email your thoughts and comments to me at denny@frontlinesoffreedom.com.  We’ll review it on the last show of the month.
