Fifty years ago the small town of Abington, Massachusetts not only lost a Vietnam War hero, but a young child lost his father. Before he went missing in action during a classified mission with his Special Operations Group, Ssgt. Richard A. Fitts sent home his Green Beret and a voice recording with a truly special message to those left behind. Twenty-one years later his remains were discovered and returned to his hometown for a hero’s welcome, and funeral where a folded flag was presented to his only son. Now, a half-century later this soldier’s story is told through a son’s cathartic journey to discover who his father was.
Following the film, there will be a discussion with Richard Fitts (Director) and Rudy Childs (Producer,) moderated by The Boston Globe's Beverly Beckham.
