Video made possible by CISCO. With special thanks to SOG Knives and Team Wendy. We took on this project not knowing what exactly we were going to capture or even how, but we knew it was an opportunity of a lifetime and that we had to be a part of it. It ended up being a more meaningful experience than we could have imagined. Due to the subject matter, historical locations, and the personal stories shared, each day after filming there was an immense emotional weight. It genuinely opened our eyes and changed our perspectives on sacrifice, family and gratitude. While we by no means want to compare ourselves to the veterans we had the privilege to work with there, we chose “Here Am I, Send Me”  for the title of the documentary feeling it not only represented so many of these soldiers but also fell right in line with how we felt when this project was first presented to us- Filming these veterans, and a gold star mom, and sharing with them this experience in Normandy, was an intimidating and overwhelming responsibility but we essentially raised our hands and said “we’ll do it, send us!” and we are forever grateful that we did. Video made possible by CISCO – With special thanks also to: SOG Knives - Team Wendy – Our lives have been changed from this project and it would not have been possible without CISCO. Thank you for making this happen!
