Print Friendly and PDF

Have you seen the new movie coming out on DVD and Blu-ray?  Act of Valor will be coming out on June 5th!  Act of Valor was theatrically released by Relativity Media on February 24th and became the No. 1 movie in America in its debut.  Be on the look out for a review and giveaway, in the next few days!

Do you love to do crafting with your family?  Have you thought about doing some Patriotic crafts?  I have some great ideas for you to do with the family in honor of our brave soldiers!


The only easy day was yesterday.  In the Bandito Brothers’ ACT OF VALOR, an elite military force, portrayed by active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs, carries out an impossible mission with insane courage and incredible teamwork in one of the most gripping and emotionally charged movies of the year.  A fictionalized account of real life Navy SEAL operation, ACT OF VALOR features a riveting story that takes audiences on an adrenaline-fueled, edge-of-their-seat journey.  When a mission to recover a kidnapped CIA operative unexpectedly results in the discovery of an imminent, terrifying global threat, an elite team of highly trained Navy SEALs must immediately embark on a heart-stopping secret operation, the outcome of which will determine the fate of us all.

In ACT OF VALOR, the audience gets to witness the heroism of a group of active-duty U.S. Navy Seals.  Though the film is a work of fiction, it allows the audience to take a peek into the risks and sacrifices these men and women do for their country and their family.  To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of ACT OF VALOR and to help honor current US Navy Seals, Twentieth Century Fox offers some tips on crafts you can make to give as presents to the officer in your life including a “Welcome Home” banner and photo frame.

Welcome Home Banner

Know an officer who’s coming home from doing a term?  Surprise him or her with a patriotic “Welcome Home” banner to go with that surprise party you’ve been planning.  Invite his friends and family and it’ll be a coming home he or she will never forget.

Patriotic Photo Frame

This easy to make photo-frame will be just the thing to give your beloved officer.  Kids can easily make it with a few colored construction paper, glue, markers and a scissor.   For the finishing touches, add a memorable photo in the frame and give it to your favorite Seal member before they go back on their next mission.

Deployment Map

Your US Navy Seal may have been deployed to many places around the world and/our country.  Print out a Black and White map and color in the places he’s been deployed at to help depict all the countries and locations he’s been able to travel to.

Knitted Blanket

Should you have knitting skills, a knitted patriotic blanket would make the perfect give to that U.S. Navy Seal member you know to help him or her stay warm at night or in cold locations.  Though DIY project may take longer than the others, they’ll be sure to appreciate your time and effort into crafting this.
