“From the Beaches of Normandy to the Jungles of Vietnam” highlights historic recounted stories from the men and women who served in the American Armed Forces in World War II and the Vietnam War.
American House served as a sponsor for all three documentaries. Proceeds from the sales of the DVDs at American House communities will go toward activities to further enrich the lives of their residents. The DVD is priced at $12.00.
Additionally, American House has donated copies of “From the Beaches of Normandy to the Jungles of Vietnam” to four Detroit-area Veterans organizations for use in fundraising activities. The organizations include:
• Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 154 in Roseville
• Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 9 in Detroit
• Michigan Paralyzed Veterans of America in Novi
• Disabled American Veterans Oakland County in Berkley
“We, as Americans, owe our freedom to veterans, and we are proud to offer this DVD to honor and acknowledge those who served their country,” said Bob Gillette, founder, American House Senior Living Communities. “Many of our residents are veterans and this is a great opportunity to say thank you for their service and commitment to America.”
“Detroit: Our Greatest Generation” is a tribute to Michigan’s World War II veterans. The one-hour film documented the impact the state of Michigan and Detroit had during the war, and how Detroit was honored with the moniker “The Arsenal of Democracy.”
“Our Vietnam Generation” is a documentary focusing on the struggles experienced by Michigan Vietnam veterans upon their return home. The film also chronicles Michigan veterans who became successful leaders in the community and in business, yet are haunted by memories and wounds from Vietnam.
