In honor of Veterans Day, the Military Channel and G.I. Film Festival announced Thursday that the station will air some of the award-winning films featured in the military-themed film festival.
“We are proud to provide our film makers with a nationwide audience on one of the nation’s most respected television networks,” G.I. Film Festival Co-Founder Brandon Millett said in a statement. “We know Military Channel viewers will be touched and inspired by this programming. And we hope through our films that they gain a greater sense of appreciation for our nation’s men and women in uniform.”
The films being shown this weekend include “Shakey’s Hill,” a documentary about a CBS camera man who followed a battalion of U.S. soldiers through the jungles of Cambodia; “Triangle of Death,” a film directed by a Marine sergeant that chronicles the day-to-day struggles of a Marine unit in Iraq; and “God and Country,” a film about Adolf Hitler’s attempts to bring down Great Britain during World War II.
The series will air on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9-11 p.m. It will run every weekend through the end of November.
