Memorial Day is a 2012 war film starring James Cromwell, Jonathan Bennett and John Cromwell, directed by Sam Fischer and written by Marc Conklin.


The film tells the story of a 13-year-old German American boy, Kyle Vogel, (Jonathan Bennett) who finds his Grandpa Bud's (James Cromwell) World War II footlocker during a game of hide and seek. Kyle strikes a deal with his grandfather to tell the stories behind any three objects he picks out of the footlocker, and the film proceeds to flash back to Bud's combat experience with the 82nd Airborne Division in World War II while also flashing forward to Kyle's future experiences with the 34th Infantry Division, also known as the "Red Bulls," in Iraq.



James Cromwell's son, John Cromwell, plays the young Bud Vogel.[2]
