Greenwood says, “Home for the Holidays is a way that we, the public, can express our gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices that our fellow military men, women and their families, endure routinely in protecting our freedom.”
Executive Producer of A Hero’s Welcome; Michael Brown, will also speak at the event about his movie, and is looking forward to screening the film with a San Diego audience. “I’m excited that A Hero’s Welcome is coming to San Diego and that we’ll get to show this film featuring Lt.
