LOS ANGELES, CA – On Saturday, June 27, 2015, about 50 Members and Associate Members of IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America) attended a screening of the new Movie “Max” about a “Combat Canine” at the Regal Theatre in the downtown Los Angeles “LA LIVE” district.

The movie was based upon true stories of War Dogs whose American Soldier handlers die and the Dogs have a difficult time of being handled by anyone else and ultimately have to be “put-down” in many cases. But the family of the American Soldier who was Max’s handler after hearing that Max was going to be “put-down” decides to adopt him in hopes he can readjust to his new handler’s.

"Bruce" is children friendly.

“Max” is a heartwarming action-packed movie revealing the loyalty of these War Dogs to their handler’s and the sacrifices they are willing to make to save the lives of other Soldiers.
