Movie Reviews

"The Honor and the Glory", in a word, inspiring!!!
06/29/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After viewing A&E's "The Honor and the Glory", I found a new sense of patriotism. The young men and women who are fortunate enough to become members of the elite organizations examined in the video, can only be called the finest our country has produced. I wish that every young person I know could see the segment on the Marine Silent Drill Team. I'm sure they would find encouragement and would gain an understanding of the value of discipline, hard work, and self-confidence."
Honor and Glory: I was there
CHARLES R VAIL | Glenolden, PA | 12/03/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From 1969 to 1971 I had the honor of serving with the Army's ceremonial unit in Washington -- "The Old Guard" -- which is one of the units featured in this documentary. The film does a masterful job of capturing the spirit and the essence of not just the The Old Guard, but the ceremonial units of all four of the armed services. The film's production values are outstanding, and it does a wonderful job of capturing all of the color and pageantry, and in many cases the sorrow and solemnity, inherent in the work that these units do. What it does best, however, is reflect the mentality of the troops who serve in these units -- the privilege they feel in serving, the gratitude and deep respect they feel for those whose sacrifices they honor. For anybody who sheds a tear when Memorial Day comes around each year, this film will deepen your appreciation, heighten your love of country, and give you a deserved sense of satisfaction over the way that we, as a people, are true to our promise not to forget out fallen heroes."

"SHOULD BE SEEN BY ALL FAMILIES FOR INSIGHT INTO WHAT WE DO AND WHY WE DO IT IN HONOR OF THOSE WHO SERVE"
