The ninth annual GI Film Festival was the largest to date, with more than 60 films playing on two screens. We were honored to be joined by Gary Sinise, Linda Powell, Montel Williams, R. Lee Ermey, the GIs of Comedy and Air Force Lt. Col. Richard Cole, one of the surviving Doolittle Raiders.
Thank you to our generous sponsors, our wonderful volunteers, and our invaluable supporters. You are instrumental in helping us bring our mission to life and foster a positive image for men and women in uniform and to connect service-members to society.
And thank you to the passionate filmmakers who have submitted their work to the festival. Your stories have made us laugh, cry, ponder, and see the experiences of the military in a new light.
