Bedford: The Town They Left Behind

Documentary / Movies 77m
Available: Worldwide

During World War II, men from all over the United States went into combat, but Bedford, Virginia suffered the country's highest losses per capita.

This timely, cross-generational documentary tells the tragic, yet inspiring, story of the Bedford native 116th National Guard unit, which was the first to come under German fire on the beaches of Normandy.

Sixty years later, their story is told in a contemporary and though-provoking style as fresh-faced members of the same unit deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan.
