With the success of “American Sniper,” perhaps more people will come to understand what our men and women in uniform endure on the battlefield and the challenges they face when they return home. Our warriors and veterans are not faceless, disembodied “boots on the ground.” Each and every one has a heart that beats with “No Greater Love.”

This upcoming documentary by U.S. Army Chaplain (Capt.) Justin Roberts sets out to bridge this gap between the American public and its combat veterans through extensive footage he shot in Afghanistan and follow-up interviews with soldiers and Gold Star wives and families.

“This film isn’t a contrived story about soldiers, it IS soldiers; this is us talking,” Roberts said. “These are our conversations.”

“No Greater Love” is an immersive look at combat deployment through ambushes, IED’s, suicide vest attacks, two large scale operations, and finally the journey back home, where many veterans now find themselves.

This isn’t Hollywood folks. This is the real deal.

It is an immense honor and awesome responsibility for those who wear the uniform of the United States military. We have the finest military forces in the world, and our nation owes a debt of gratitude to those who serve which can never be fully repaid, especially for those who sacrificed all.

Perhaps this film will open the eyes of those who don’t yet appreciate what it means to serve. Please share this film trailer.
