the makers of this film did an excellent job touching all the bases on the topic of war and patriotism, with the pledge of allegiance being the center piece of symbolism for these topics. if the viewer is looking for a christian film, they may be disappointed because one of the main characters ( warning, here comes a minor 'spoiler' of the multisurprise ending) turns out to be a ghost....the film has a wide mixture of wonderfully written and portrayed characters, from those who embrace a liberal, pacifist perspective, to those who are conservative and very patriotic. it does not judge the liberals, but does take the position of conservative patriotism. the producers show the many sides of the issue very well through these portrayals. the Bruce character shows how even patriotism can be turned to use for self and selfish purposes..... a mixture of what seems to be true life veteran testimonies give it great power. great wisdom in one vet's words: "when you say the pledge, it's not to the government in Washington or their current ideology, but to your neighbor, the people who live next door to you. that's what makes the pledge powerful".
