Show Description:
An American Hero tells the embattled story of Thomas O’Brien, an optimistic Irish immigrant, who joins the United States Army, falls in love with and marries a spirited American woman before being sent to fight alongside his brother in the Second World War. He sacrifices and suffers terrible losses during the war, while on the home-front, his wife, Mary, forgoes her education to join the war effort and grieves the loss of their unborn child. Both Thomas and Mary endure the war, but their battles take heavy tolls. On the celebration of his return, Mary tells Thomas he is to be awarded the Medal of Honor, an accolade he rejects for simply surviving the worst day of his life. In the end, Thomas learns the depths of his love of family, the sacrifices of heroes, and the true meaning of becoming an American.
