Taurel explained, "This is a true work of passion and I deeply hope that audiences will go away with a deeper appreciation of the tremendous sacrifice our servicemen and servicewomen, and their families, have made for our country. I feel that the intense sacrifices that veterans and their families have made can never have enough awareness.."
