Filipino Sun

Maj. Gen. Antonio Taguba,

“The documentary is more than just a film about history. It is a significant chapter in American culture.”

Educational Media Reviews

"This film accomplishes its objectives well and is rated

highly recommended."

Ken Burns,
Better Angels Society 

“There’s never been a better moment to lift up and reflect diverse stories from history to provide a greater perspective on what we’re experiencing now."


Over 1.2 million claim they served.

Fewer than 20% were added to the official roster.

Women were explicity excluded.

They still believe America will do the right thing.

A LONG MARCH shines light on past injustices to ensure history remembers all who have served under the U.S. flag.
