Seriously, you need to take 9 minutes and 48 seconds out of your busy day to watch this video. Veterans have always been known to poke fun at the other Branches of the Military, but in the end it all comes down to this.
In this short film, a Navy Veteran’s daily routine of putting up the flag in a retirement community is interrupted when an Army Veteran moves in across the courtyard. They begin a war of one-upmanship as they fight to beat each other to the flag each morning. This film depicts the true-life rivalry between the different divisions of the U.S. Armed Forces and the bond and respect that all Veterans share from having served under one flag.
This short film stars David Huddleston from such films as “Blazing Saddles” and “The Big Lebowski” and James McEachin from “Play Misty For Me” and TV’s “Perry Mason Mysteries”.
