Product Overview
SOLDIER OF DESTINY is a story about a Marine, Tyler Ferguson, who lost his best friend in combat. He survives being captured by Afghan soldiers and travels to Africa to fulfill his brother in arm's last wish: to deliver the news to his sister running a Mission station in Ethiopia. JJay Harley, an ex-Marine turned Pastor, guides him through the process of dealing with the loss and the trauma of war amongst a vicious civil war. Constantly terrorized by crazed guerrilla fighters, all that keeps them going is unbeatable faith in God. Our hero, the young Marine, goes from an unbeliever in God to a Spiritual awakening that eventually leads him to giving the ultimate sacrifice a man can give.

Dove "Family-Approved" Seal for Ages 12+ 

Dove Worldview
We have here a faith-based movie which nicely demonstrates the power of sacrifice in the name of love. Samuel Quincy (Merle Shenk) gives his life for fellow Marine Tyler Ferguson (nicely played by Stephen Preston). Tyler promised to let Quincy's sister Rachel know if anything happened to him. He travels to meet her and meets her husband as well, a pastor named JJay Harley (Jonathan Pienar). Rachel (Claire Winters) is grateful to Tyler despite the bad news.

Tyler is faced with making a decision, accepting Christ just as his friend Quincy had. Ironically he is soon faced with a similar test of faith, the chance to save lives by giving his own.

This inspirational story features good guys, bad guys (including a scavenging leader named Maroba) and the power of sacrificial love. We are pleased to award this movie our Family Approved Seal for ages twelve plus. This one speaks to the heart.
