Until They Are Home (2012)
Directed by Barber, produced by Matthew Hausle and Tamara Henry and executive produced by Tim Shelton, Until They Are Home brings to light the extraordinary dedication of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) team members, largely unsung heroes who, until now, have been unrecognized while working in the shadows. These young men and women returned in 2010 to the site of one of the most horrific battles of World War II in order to bring home fallen military heroes. Their efforts on the island of Tarawa have provided some closure after 69 years, recovering the remains of a few U.S. servicemen and flying those remains back to American soil. JPAC has more than a dozen teams that travel the globe on recovery missions, and Until They Are Home is the story of one of those missions. -- (C) Official Site … More

Critic Reviews for Until They Are Home
Swelling music and Kelsey Grammer's refined narration supply the appropriate sobriety, but the film is too intent on promoting the nobility of its cause to worry about engaging the uninitiated.
A well-meaning but pedestrian documentary that deals with gut-wrenching subject matter.
Amazing archival footage, narrated by Kelsey Grammer, puts us right there. Memories shared by servicemen and families help us feel the importance of the subject.
Unfortunately too pedestrian to appeal to many beyond war buffs and the uber-patriotic.
Like the recovery mission it chronicles, Until They Are Home is a noble but relatively uneventful experience.
