Political dignitaries, uniformed military, wounded veterans and many more will gather in Los Angeles on March 25 for a tribute event that will feature the premiere of the short film, American Identity, written and directed by Stephen Rollins. American Identity follows the lives of two soldiers, best friends, who are sent to Afghanistan following the attacks of September 11th and portrays the impact on their families as these events unfold.
On this same day, a flag will be flown over the United States Capitol Building, proclaiming it national American Identity Day. Both the flag and film will pay homage to those who have given their lives in service to our country, and serve as a symbol of our government’s commitment to help the families of these brave Americans.
The evening will benefit the Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund, a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization that provides college grants and financial assistance to surviving children and spouses of our U.S. military service members who have lost their lives in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

“We honor them not only because they are guardians of our liberty, but because they embody the spirit of service; a willingness to find meaning in something greater than themselves. And yet, at this moment—a moment that will define a generation—it is precisely this spirit that must inhabit us all.” ~ President Barack Obama
