"Today, the Republic of Korea has nourished the seeds of freedom sown with our warriors' blood to stand as one of the world's most powerful testaments to the fruits of liberty."

Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) April 25, 2014

The Remembered War, a first-time entry for RMS Productions, has been selected for the GI Film Festival 2014 Memorial Day weekend in Washington, D.C., and in Los Angeles this November. The 60-minute feature documentary (watch trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibIOxJzFJ2Y&feature=em-upload_owner) is the final component of a two-year commemorative project with the Department of Defense Korean War 60th Commemoration Committee. The project also included a digital encyclopedia and a 160-page hardbound book delivered as a gift to 250,000 Korean War veterans in every state last year.

“This film is dedicated to the men and women who fought, suffered, and sacrificed for a war-torn, distant land in desperate need of freedom,” explains Sharlene Hawkes, President of RMS Productions and executive producer/director of the film. “Today, the Republic of Korea has nourished the seeds of freedom sown with our warriors' blood to stand as one of the world's most powerful testaments to the fruits of liberty. The documentary is completely told from the veterans’ perspective.”

The title of the documentary came from a heartfelt statement by one of the Korean War veterans, Joe Ingeneri, who said, “I’d like to see it not be the forgotten war, but the remembered war; remember the people that served and the people that died and gave their lives for this country.”

For those Korean War veterans or their families attending the screening at the GI Film Festival in Washington, D.C., the first 150 will be given a copy of the 160-page book Korea Reborn: A Grateful Nation Honors War Veterans for 60 Years of Growth as a gift from the producers.

Remember My Service (RMS) Productions (http://www.RememberMyService.com) —a wholly owned subsidiary of StoryRock, Inc. based in Salt Lake City, Utah—is the producer of the commemorative documentary, and publisher of the hardbound “coffee table” book entitled Korea Reborn. In November 2013, 250,000 copies of this book were distributed to Korean War veterans in every state as a free gift from the Korean people. RMS Productions is the only full-service production house that primarily works with military commands to tell their story at the unit level using both traditional and interactive/multimedia formats. RMS partners with both the Association of the U.S. Army, and the Naval Historical Foundation, and is an official commemorative partner of the Vietnam War 50th Commemoration. RMS produces both multimedia and traditional Navy cruise books, and Army deployment books.
