No Greater Love: Army chaplain hopes documentary will connect civilians to reality of the battlefield

With the success of “American Sniper,” perhaps more people will come to understand what our men and women in uniform endure on the battlefield and the challenges they face when they return home. Our warriors and veterans are not faceless, disembodied “boots on the ground.” Each and every one has a heart that beats with “No Greater Love.”

This upcoming documentary by U.S. Army Chaplain (Capt.) Justin Roberts sets out to bridge this gap between the American public and its combat veterans through extensive footage he shot in Afghanistan and follow-up interviews with soldiers and Gold Star wives and families.

“This film isn’t a contrived story about soldiers, it IS soldiers; this is us talking,” Roberts said. “These are our conversations.”

“No Greater Love” is an immersive look at combat deployment through ambushes, IED’s, suicide vest attacks, two large scale operations, and finally the journey back home, where many veterans now find themselves.

This isn’t Hollywood folks. This is the real deal.

It is an immense honor and awesome responsibility for those who wear the uniform of the United States military. We have the finest military forces in the world, and our nation owes a debt of gratitude to those who serve which can never be fully repaid, especially for those who sacrificed all.

Perhaps this film will open the eyes of those who don’t yet appreciate what it means to serve. Please share this film trailer.

  3. Facing the evil of our time, our military is the bane of those who would enslave the world, Christian warriors, the sheepdogs! http://liberalsbackwardsthink.com/2015/02/05/americas-last-line-of-defense/

    Modern day Nazis have emerged. As ISIS and other Jihadis rampage throughout
    the Middle East and Africa, Americans and Europeans are welcoming Moslems into
    their midst to escape the savages. But
    most are coming not to live free, but to engage in Jihad as Islamist invaders:

  4. The Republican Party has the Dream Candidate if invited in the 2016 program.

    This candidate is seeking bold reform in four different areas of military life within the services. If elected in 2016, will push for all these areas.

  5. “American Sniper” and “No Greater Love” just show the widening gap between our military and their Commander in Chief who should really be known as the Crackpot in Charge….
