“Last Ounce of Courage” Premieres Nationally with Special Showings in Theaters on Patriot Day, 9/11
Veritas Entertainment Provides Free Tickets to Military Members in Select Cities; Donates Portion of Sales to Warriors for Freedom
FRANKLIN, Tenn., Sept. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — “Last Ounce of Courage,” the freedom, family and faith film that honors our military men and women and the freedoms for which they fought, will premier nationally in more than 500 theaters across America on 9/11 in commemoration of Patriot Day, prior to opening on more than 1,200 screens Sept. 14.
In order to honor military men and women, film company Veritas Entertainment is giving away tickets through Salem Radio to veterans and active military members in 28 select cities. A portion of all Patriot Day ticket sales will be donated to the Warriors for Freedom Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and improving mental, physical and holistic services for our nation’s active military, veterans and their families.
“Patriot Day is a time of remembrance for those who lost their lives on 9/11 as well as the brave men and women who continue to do so in the war on terror,” said Director Kevin McAfee (“Beyond the Gates of Splendor,” “The End of the Spear”). “We believe ‘Last Ounce of Courage’ encourages individuals to keep in mind the history that has shaped our country and not forsake the sacrifice of our brave military men and women.”
The first theatrical motion picture to receive “The Chuck Norris Seal of Approval,” “Last Ounce of Courage,” stars Marshall Teague (“Roadhouse”) and Academy Award nominee Jennifer O’Neill (“Summer of ’42”). The film tells a powerful intergenerational story of a grieving father inspired by his grandson to take a stand for what’s right against a tide of apathy and vanishing liberties. Amidst a backdrop of military conflict abroad and domestic wars against freedom, a highly decorated combat veteran is reminded that we best honor our fallen heroes by holding dear to what they gave their all to defend.
“This is a film about courage and character, traits that our brave military possess and on which they act every day in order to protect our nation,” said Veritas Entertainment President and CEO Steve Griffin. “We hope ‘Last Ounce of Courage’ can serve as a reminder that freedom isn’t free – even here in the U.S., where apathy all too often leads to an erosion of our personal liberties.”
