This upcoming documentary film explores the sacrifices and contributions these patriots made in the name of building a better America. These honorable men, including Medal of Honor recipient Moses Williams, receive the recognition they so justly deserve thanks to the selfless efforts of the men and women keeping their legacy alive today.
