"This movie touched my soul." Doris Rivas, Radio Host, US Army veteran
"I am a former Navy Corpsman, I spent 4 tours in Iraq and 1 in Afghanistan. I would like to say to you that your movie Fray, which I watched tonight, is a great film. I cannot say thank you enough for it. The silence of the film may leave people who only understand mindless action lost. But, when I watched the movie, so often I felt at times I was watching part of my life. I could see the anger, rage, sadness, hopelessness, courage, and despair that that man felt. Wow.
Thank you sir, C.M." - C.M., Navy Corps
