An interesting movie depicting how next of kin are informed of their loved ones death in the military. A little long at times but Woody brings some good comedic relief. Not a great movie, but OK.

A film I found difficult to watch about the men who make first contact with the families of fallen soldiers. I was initially confused by the absence of an ending, but it's not really over, is it?

Very unpleasant job, but someone will have to do it. Sorrow, anger, sadness and somehow new beginning.

Good job by the exbartender from Cheers. Thought the love angle was somewhat out of place for the sargent but I can see the job they had would be extremely difficult and how emotions can be stretched esp for such an illegitimate war as Iraq

about the army messenger job.
how hard it is to convey a soldier's death message to their family.i really don't understand why most of the hollywood movies inject unnecessary sexual scenes, smoking, alchohol and f-dialogues into the people's minds.it really damages young people's future.any movie deserves better scenes and dialogues than them.
