1993 War Film

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a 1993 war film, starring James Cromwell (Grandpa Bud), Jonathan Bennett (Kyle), and John Cromwell (what’s his name in movie?). 13-year old, Kyle Vogel, discovers the World War II footlocker and pleads his grandfather, Bud, to tell him more. They strike a deal that Grandpa Bud will tell the stories behind any three objects picked from the footlocker. The movie begins the flashbacks to Bud’s combat experience with the 82nd Airborne Division in WWll, while also flashing forward to Kyle’s future with the 34th Infantry Division, “Red Bulls”, in Iraq.
