dear kevin,

i was moved to tears by the movie that you acted.
it is the most touching movies i have watched, it shows the reality of war that we seldom see. you were able to convey the nuances of human emotion.
the movie shows the pain that the living has to endure.
the deep respect that was displayed by everybody to the fallen was indeed stirring ( the gardener, the cargo handlers at the tarmac, the Capt of the flight, the flight attendant who handled you the cross and the convoy escorting the hearse and the people at the funeral ).
you have also represented the huge responsibility undertaken by the military in meeting the bereaved, and more importantly making it real.
i salute you for allowing us to have a better insight.
