War. The Home Front. The costs of service to one's country and the ongoing human phenomenon of armed conflict. "Bedford: The Town They Left Behind," explores these universal issues through the eyes of one small Virginia town and the "boys" of its National Guard unit who "laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom" as the first to land on D-Day in 1944. Sixty years later, echoes of the past travel with the young, fresh-faced members of that same unit, from the same families and from the same town, as they are deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq. This timely cross-generational story – at various moments tragic, romantic and inspiring – is a thought-provoking, emotional look at those who go to the battlefronts and those they leave behind.
