||Synopsis: Memorial Day, 1993. When 13-year-old Kyle Vogel discovers the World War II footlocker belonging to his grandfather, Bud, everyone tells Kyle to put it back. Luckily, he ignores them. Although Bud has never talked about the war, he finds himself striking a deal with his grandson: Kyle can pick any three souvenirs, and Bud will tell him the stories behind each one. Memorial Day not only takes us on a journey into Bud's complicated wartime past, but also into Kyle's wartime future. As the two men share parallel experiences in combat, they come to realize how that magical day on the porch shaped both of their lives. Written by Anonymous

Memorial Day is not meant to be a "war" movie, it is a Veteran's story.
Made with Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans, the intent was to convey to
our families and friends the impact on the soul of going to war. It is
not meant to glorify war, everyone who goes there comes back a lesser
person in some ways. Enlightened yes, but all too often hardened also.
Being a Veteran of several campaigns I don't see myself ever opening up
to my immediate family but someday with time and a bit of distance from
those tours of duty will be able to relate some of it to grandchildren
as "Bud" Vogel/actor James Cromwell, the Grandfather in the movie did.
This movie was helped by a lot of really good people helping to make it
this far, and graced by historically significant WWII aircraft. The P38
Lightning is one of only a half dozen flying in the world, the P51
Mustang is one of only a handful that actually flew combat missions in
WWII. Fagen Fighters of Granite Falls, Minnesota must be thanked for
that. It was made with the invaluable contribution of the WWII
Historical Reenactment Society, and many local MN Iraq Veterans used as
background actors. It is a story of great significance, and if we can
get it told I feel it will do immeasurable good in helping Veterans and
their families come to terms with our current return to civilian life.
And not least of all, it is a respectful homage to our passing WWII
Veterans. In 10 yrs they will all virtually be gone. Our hopes are that
the movie will help them, and Veterans of all wars, pass on their first
hand experiences and witness to history.
