This is an inspiring story of one man who embodies the character of a Godly American. While the documentary highlights key moments from the life of Jimmy Gentry, it is clear that every event in his life had a purpose and those events will continue to inspire people for generations to come as people watch this film and share it with others.

From his Depression-era childhood in a historic Tennessee town to military service that took him to the Dachau concentration camp, where he helped liberate prisoners, Gentry never forgot his family, his heritage, and his God. He shares memories of his mother, who raised seven children alone after their dad died when Jimmy was 12. He also speaks lovingly of the first and only woman he courted, his wife of over sixty years who died in 2006. After returning from World War II, Gentry began coaching football and became a respected leader and father figure to many through the years.

This is a film that you can watch with your entire family. Parents who have discussed World War II with their children will most likely have no problem with the photographs shown during this portion of the documentary, but for very young children, you should be aware that there are a couple of photos of dead bodies. However, this portion of the film was done so appropriately that we allowed all our children, ages five to twelve, to watch the film.

This is an excellent documentary that can be enjoyed by the entire family. All my children were so engrossed in it that when I had to take a break at one point, they all protested!

This would be an excellent family heirloom or gift for the church or homeschool lending library!
