About The Film
Tell Us Your Lance Story
OPERATION: Phantom Jet
We are producing a feature length documentary exploring Lance’s life and legacy.
In 1976 the US Congress recognized Captain Lance P. Sijan with the Medal of Honor for his actions in Vietnam that went above and beyond the call of duty. The award was presented posthumously to his parents.
His family and friends recognize him for that and so much more. At twenty-four years old, in the prime of his life, Lance was listed as MIA for the next seven years. Not until the war was over and the stories of his journey became known, did we come to understand what he had endured.
We have already captured several compelling interviews from his family and colleagues. Their stories paint the portrait of an extraordinary young man who lived every facet of his life with integrity and honor.
This is a film that explores courage, determination, love and loss as well as how strength and commitment of one can affect so many.
In a time when honor and integrity are fading from the public dialogue, and individual pursuit and gain is attempting to replace family, commitment and community, this is a story that must be told.
