  • Honoring Fathers in Film and Life – GI Film Festival | Reel Stories! Real Heroes!
    they looked Randall Wallace When I was asked to pick a military film for review for Father s Day there was one film that popped immediately into my mind and that was Randall Wallace s We Were Soldiers We Were Soldiers is based on the book We were Soldier Once and Young by LTG ret Hal Moore and journalist Joseph Galloway and recounts the first major ground battle of the Vietnam War in 1965 Unlike other films about the wartime experience it touches on the themes of fatherhood in a number of ways Early in the film we meet Lt Col Harold Hal Moore portrayed by Mel Gibson traveling with his wife Madeleine Stowe and kids to their new home on Fort Benning Georgia Moore is shown as a strong and involved father who lovingly interacts with his kids helping them settle into their new quarters on base Moore must prove to his family and his unit that he has what it takes to lead the Army into a new age of warfare Moore has been tasked with helping implement the Air Cavalry concept a revolutionary approach to battle involving a large combat unit that moves exclusively by air relying on a new kind of cavalry mount the Bell UH 1 Iroquois which came to be known affectionately as the Huey Present at the Huey s role in the Air Calvary s birth Moore is a founding father to the new Air Mobile concept He may not have designed it but he certainly brought it into the world on the battlefield And aren t fathers the ones who raise their children regardless of biology The audience then gets to see Hal Moore in another paternal role one that we see repeatedly as a firm but caring commander His officers are in their early 20s while many of the troops under his command are still teenagers Moore s concern for all his men resonate in scene after scene during periods of training for war and in battle and in the moments in between Director Randall Wallace focuses on Moore s interest in and involvement with some of his key subordinates in particular 2 nd Lt Jack Geoghegan portrayed by Chris Klein who incidentally becomes a father himself shortly before deploying for Vietnam Moore also has a filial relationship with Sgt Maj Plumley a crusty and implacable stalwart non com embodied with a jarring strength and rigidity by Sam Elliot Though it s clear that Moore is the commander when he s rocked by the overwhelming surge of the enemy forces it is Plumley who provides guidance reminding Moore that his actions will be his testimony Faith is its own character in this film and is revealed in a personal intimate way Moore and Geoghegan bond through their common faith illustrating a theme that s close to Gibson s offscreen personna as a devout Christian Moore is able offload much of his fear and anxiety in battle into the hands of a
