Filmmaker Steven C. Barber, producers Matthew Hausle and Tamara Henry and executive producer Tim Shelton invite you to the 2012 Memorial Day (May 28) premiere of Until They Are Home at the DGA Theatre in Los Angeles.
Until They Are Home, Barber's sequel to his 2009 film Return to Tarawa, chronicles the search by members of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) for the remains of missing US Marines who were killed in the Battle of Tarawa in November 1943. Narrated by Kelsey Grammer, Until They Are Home brings to light the extraordinary dedication of the 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 have provided some closure after 69 years, recovering the remains of a few US servicemen and flying those remains back to American soil.
