Bedford: The Town They Left Behind

Cable broadcasts, home video
GI Film Festival documentary award

Bedford tells the story of the enormous personal sacrifice of the small town of Bedford, Virginia – the community that lost more men per capita on D-Day than any other in America. And the sacrifice continues. The film connects Bedford’s bravest soldiers from WWII to those from the community who served recently in Iraq and Afghanistan.

After proving its popularity with audiences as an official selection at various festivals around the country, Bedford: The Town They Left Behind was given a special screening, hosted by Senator Mark Warner, for nearly 800 dignitaries at the U.S. Capitol. It was also presented in Normandy at the 65th Anniversary of D-Day and in Bastogne at the 65th Anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge.

Bedford is available on DVD.
