As months pass, the card never leaves his side, giving him the strength to survive and setting him on a mission to find her.

This is such a heart warming story and one my family will enjoy every Christmas season.

5 Stars- Mary F
I loved this movie! I wanted to watch it again right away so I could "live" with the characters again. Characters were well rounded and had a variety of personalities. I loved Lou Grant! It was great to see him again. Story line was strong and the main characters drew me in to the plot. Any one with a veteran or active soldier would enjoy this movie. If you like to volunteer and help others this movie is a testament to what your gift does when it leaves your hands.

2 Stars- Mercedes G
This movie was good except for the constant kissing between the girl and her boyfriend. There was a scene where they were making out on the couch in her parents house and her parents walked in on them. That was so not cool. Not something I would want my daughter watching. I'm an adult and I would have been embarrassed to watch this in front my parents.

5 Stars- Jacqueline A
Wonderful heartwarming movie of how we can encourage and help one another. Have seen it several times and look forward to watching it again.

5 Stars- Andrew B
This is one of those chick flick films that as a husband i want to watch over and over again, because it makes my wife remember how great a man God gave her. We love this because its a real story with great humour and gives us great sermons for the kids to here from us, about kissing too!
