Jerry's Last Mission is the powerful story of fighter pilot Jerry Yellin who flew the last combat mission of World War II over Japan and returned home a hero, but led a dark life of survivor's guilt and daily thoughts of suicide. Married with four sons, Yellin was forced to face his enemy once again when his youngest son moved to Japan and married the daughter of a Kamikaze pilot.

The film's trailer can be found here -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtxiI6V1K30&feature=youtu.be

Free movie screening - Sky Blossom
news release
On November 11, 2020, an energizing film on young caregivers in military families will debut -- the inspirational documentary, SKY BLOSSOM: Diaries Of The Next Greatest Generation.

Sky Blossom is the film salute to the frontline heroes who care for loved ones at home, particularly during this unexpected 2020. The not-for-profit film is a raw, uplifting window into the lives of 24.5 million children and millennials who step forward as caregiving heroes to family members who are often disabled or chronically ill. 

While many are not even in college yet, these young caregivers stay at home to care for family members with tough medical conditions, doing things often seen only in hospitals. They are cheerleaders, part-time workers, and college students who live double lives, quietly growing up as America's next greatest generation. 

"This film shares a journey with five extraordinary families whose bravery, self-sacrifice, devotion and love are an inspiration," said Lui. "Our hope is that the film honors and empowers the millions of family caregivers across our nation -- whose numbers are rapidly growing in the pandemic."

"The film's title, SKY BLOSSOM, is from World War II, when troops would look up at the sky and say, 'Here come the Sky Blossoms,' to describe the paratroopers rushing to their aid," said Executive Producer Jean Tsien. "This film shares a new generation answering that call to help." 

The intergenerational film's premiere event offers two innovations and market pivots that accommodate social distancing for these unique special events on Veterans Day, November 11th:
1. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will hold the world premiere as a first-ever drive-in cinema event in the Center's storied 49-year history. (7:30 pm ET)
2. Community Partners AMC Theaters and Universal Pictures will also recognize National Family Caregivers Month by welcoming moviegoers in 50 cities across the U.S. at a complementary screening for one night only. (6:30 pm local times) A full theater listing can be found at www.skyblossom.com. There are limited virtual screening tickets also available on the website.  To learn more, visit www.skyblossom.com

Veterans Day appeal
news release
Mission Roll Call makes a Veterans Day appeal for more families of vets who have died by suicide, overdose to take part in study aimed at saving lives -- Combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, and Mission Roll Call Executive Director, Garrett Cathcart is using the week of Veterans Day (November 9th) to put forth a CALL TO ACTION for families, friends, and co-workers of those who have lost a veteran to suicide, overdose, asphyxiation, drowning, death by law enforcement, high-speed, single-driver accident, and accidental gunshot within the last 24 months to participate in "Operation Deep Dive" (research conducted through the University of Alabama and funded by the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation) to improve mental healthcare services for veterans.

Cathcart said, "We need the families, friends, and co-workers of veterans who have died by suicide and non-natural causes to make the life-saving contribution of sharing valued information around their loved one's life to support the efforts of Operation Deep Dive. The more we can learn about the last year of their life, the better we can understand the community support that was or was not available to them and how we can engage our veterans prior to an overwhelming feeling of despair or hopelessness. We want this research to ultimately save lives."

Families, friends, co-workers of vets who have died by suicide, overdose, asphyxiation, a high-speed, single-driver accident, drowning, suicide by law enforcement, or accidental gunshot in the last 24 months are encouraged to participate in "Operation Deep Dive" by contacting @AWPartnership on social media or connecting with Krystal Garcia at [email protected] or 706-386-2431.

Operation Deep Dive is a community-based, former service member, suicide prevention study taking place in 15 states across the country. This four-year study is a partnership between America's Warrior Partnership and researchers from The University of Alabama that is funded by a grant from the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation.

With its first-of-a-kind virtual Gala, VetsinTech breaks the current mold of people hovering around a laptop on a Friday night - instead, families will be able to watch on their SmartTV and have their meals delivered by UberEats.

Virtual Veterans Day celebration "Honoring our Warriors" presented by Wounded Warrior Project
news release
Tune in to “Honoring Our Warriors” – a virtual Veterans Day celebration to encourage Americans everywhere to celebrate Veterans Day from home. The virtual event will be hosted by former NFL quarterback and current football analyst for ESPN Jesse Palmer, and includes musical performances and veteran tributes. Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 11:30 a.m. EST / 10:30 CST / 8:30 PST via Wounded Warrior Project's Facebook page and YouTube channel.

The nationwide virtual celebration will bring to life stories of strength, courage and hope through personal anecdotes from generations of military veterans, touching reunions and musical performances by multi-platinum singer Sara Evans and male a cappella group Straight No Chaser – all to honor the United States armed forces and celebrate America's heroes.
