Reports from the premiere of “Battle Brotherhood” in Los Angeles
November 1st is celebrated world-wide as All Saints’ Day and it is set as the opening night of the film that commemorates David’s humanitarian action. David was seriously wounded when he was saving his fellow-soldier and he had survived against all odds.
This young American veteran believed that if the veterans of the past wars become friends they could promote peace together. He defied the stereotypes and joined his Russian counterparts. Together they laid the cornerstone of the international movement that unites the veterans of all wars and called it “Battle Brotherhood”.
After losing his legs to a land mine in 2010 David never gave up. He proved his doctors wrong and learned to walk again. He was actively providing assistance to other disabled veterans, both in his home country and abroad. David traveled to Russia on two occasions. August 2nd 2013 went down in history as on that day USMC Staff Sergeant David Lyon congratulated Russian paratroopers with the Russian Airborne Troops Day from the stage set in the Red Square and gifted priceless hi-tech prosthetics to a Russian veteran of the war in Afghanistan.
