Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) February 14, 2014
The Preddy Memorial Foundation is encouraging the public and potential corporate sponsors to make tax deductible donations on-line at http://www.Preddy-Foundation.org to help complete the powerful documentary that tells the incredible true story of America’s greatest ace of the legendary P-51 Mustang. Anyone interested in helping tell the inspirational true story of WWII fighter ace George Preddy Jr. for future generations to learn of the incredible service and sacrifice of Preddy and those he served with can make a contribution that will go directly to the production of CAROLINA ACE: THE DOCUMENTARY.
George Preddy Jr. of Greensboro, North Carolina, who would have been 95 years old last week, was already a skilled pilot before the war, but was rejected three times by U.S. Naval Aviation. Through his perseverance and dedication, Preddy achieved his dream of serving in the skies with the U.S. Army Air Force, and went on to become the greatest ace to fly the legendary P-51 Mustang. Preddy was highly decorated for several acts of valor when outnumbered by enemy fighters, and saved the lives of several airmen during WWII with his acts of self sacrifice.
George Preddy is getting a well deserved and long overdue state-of-the-art film, that is being produced by the donated time and experience of a veteran of Hollywood visual effects blockbuster movies including “Superman Returns”, “The Chronicles of Narnia”, “Green Lantern”, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and upcoming films “Noah” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”. The documentary creator reached out to the Preddy Memorial Foundation to make the film as accurate as possible and received full approval and support from the surviving members of the Preddy family.
The film is being produced to tell the inspirational story of how one man went above and beyond the call of duty and honors all veterans that have served a cause greater than their own and have made the ultimate sacrifice while defending freedom around the world.
The non-profit Preddy Memorial Foundation is asking the public to visit http://www.preddy-foundation.org and make a tax deductible donation to help reach at least a $ 100,000 goal to complete the film in time for the 70th Anniversary of the final mission of George Preddy on Christmas day of 2014. On December 25th, 1944, during the Battle of the Bulge, Preddy was killed by a friendly fire incident while chasing an enemy aircraft at low altitude over the Hurtgen Forest.
CAROLINA ACE: THE DOCUMENTARY will be broadcast on public television, and all donations are tax deductible. Please visit http://www.preddy-foundation.org and click on the “Donate” button or visit the documentary website at Carolina-Ace.com for more information and sample video.
Any corporate sponsors interested in having their company name on the documentary are encouraged to contact the films producer, LeftyFilms.com, or the Preddy Memorial Foundation.
