Recommended by SL Marshal and General Eisenhower to receive the Presidential Unit Citation .. the 30th Infantry Division has never received their Presidential Unit Citation!
Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 06, 2011
Lew Adams, accomplished Austin Filmmaker, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to finish a project five years in the making. Working “pro-bono," his documentary, "Heroes of Old Hickory,” is the story of the 30th Infantry Division and one of the last unknown stories of WW II. His film features real stories from American veterans and the Europeans they freed. “Heroes of Old Hickory” won't be funded until (and unless) Adams reaches his full funding goal. So visit the "Heroes of Old Hickory" Kickstarter project and support this documentary.
To finish this important documentary, Lew Adams has launched his first KICKSTARTER campaign. Facts about the Old Hickory Division:
- Not regular Army, but National Guard.
- Fought in all major battle campaigns of the ETO.
- Rated Number One in the European Theatre of Operation.
- Recommended by SL Marshal and General Eisenhower to receive the Presidential Unit Citation.
However, did you know that the 30th Infantry Division has never received their Presidential Unit Citation!
This historical film documents their outstanding achievements as it retraces the action of this National Guard Division across Europe, revealing a compelling story about determination and heroism, the Europeans that still honor them today, and the politics that blocked the recognition they so rightly deserve. So, this is a Call to Arms for all 30th Veterans, family members, supporters, military organizations, friends in Europe, those who have served, are currently serving, and every Old Hickory supporter, whose donations - will enable “Heroes of Old Hickory” to bring their story and the truth to light. Hopefully, the film will create a new awareness enabling the men to receive the commendation and honor that has been denied them for almost 70 years.
The documentary won't be funded until (and unless) "Heroes of Old Hickory" Kickstarter project reaches their full funding goal. Please log-on and help us bring this little known and uplifting story of the Old Hickory Division to global audiences.
Thanks for the support and please continue to support the troops...both young and old.
