"Ten Days in September  tells the story of our military and civilian leaders as well as our solders and citizens whose vision, sacrifice, bravery and patriotism united our nation to help preserve the way of life we enjoy today.  I think there has never been a more formidable partnership in the history of our country."
Jay Dardenne
Lieutenant Governor of Louisiana

"This documentary provides an opportunity for Americans and Louisianians to appreciate the history of the Louisiana Maneuvers, to learn from that experience and, most importantly, to recognize and salute the many Americans who trained on Louisiana soil and brought victory to America and the world when Hitler began his march across Europe."
