This Monday, May 31st, America will observe Memorial Day. The day that commemorates all men and women who have died while serving in the military for our country. Recently we talked about an amazing documentary that followed the story of US Marine Combat Veteran Jon Hancock in Bastards’ Road. We witness his epic 5,800 mile healing journey on foot across the United States. Stopping along the way to visit his fellow 2/4 Marines, a unit known as The Magnificent Bastards. As well as families of their fallen.
Thanks to Bastards’ Road, LRM Online has received an exclusive clip ahead of Memorial Day. This clip is titled “The Gold Star Women of Bastards’ Road”. Gold Star families are those who have lost a loved one in combat. Check it out down below!

Here is the synopsis for Bastards’ Road
Like many Combat Veterans, transitioning back to civilian life was very difficult for Jon Hancock. After years of struggling, he decided to take an epic journey across the country – on foot
Walking nearly 6,000 miles alone, Jon confronts the demons that had overtaken his life. Visiting his fellow 2/4 Marines – known as the The Magnificent Bastards – and families of their fallen along the way, he finds a mission even bigger than his own redemption. Veterans everywhere are struggling with PTSD. They are taking their own lives at an alarming rate – 50% higher than non-veterans.
With remarkable honesty, insight and humor, Jon rediscovers the power of unbreakable bonds and learns he can change how he relates to his traumatic memories.
Bastards’ Road is a very well-made documentary. It shows us what these amazing Veterans go through and the ways they each deal with their individual trauma. But more importantly, we get to see the strong bond that these brothers in arms have with each other.
Bastards’ Road is now available on all digital platforms.
