Two generations. Two wars. One story. On Memorial Day, 1993, 13-year-old Kyle convinces his grandfather, Bud (Oscar nominee James Cromwell), to share the heroic and sometimes grueling stories of his days as a soldier in WWII. Then - tying past to present - a grown-up Kyle finds the same sorts of victories and scares on the battlefield in modern day Iraq. Dedicated to America's warriors and their families, Memorial Day celebrates the honor, courage and sacrifice that unite veterans across all wars and generations.
