Summary
D-Day: June 6, 1944. American medics Robert Wright and Kenneth Moore form the 101st Airborne (Screaming Eagles) set up an aid station inside a small 12th-century church in Normandy, France. They're there to treat wounded American soldiers. Outside, battle rages. All that protects the two medics is a flag with a red cross on the door of the church and armbands identifying them as healers. Over the next 36 hours, Wright and Moore help anyone brought into the church-- woulnded American and German soldiers are placed together on pews to be treated. Seven decades later, the blood of the injured remains visible on the original pews as a reminder of the compassion, courage and humanity shown there. Hear from the heroes themselves as they recoung their experience in this moving documentary film from the World War II Foundation"--Container
