A Trip to the Moon by Georges Melies based off the Jules Verne's novel: From the Earth to the Moon. It was the first film to use animation and is considered the first science fiction film. http://smhttp.14409.nexcesscdn.net/806D5E/wordpress-L/images/A-Trip-to-the-Moon.jpg http://www.tcm.com/this-month/article/29935%7C0/A-Trip-to-the-Moon.html
Here is a soldier in Iraq , stationed in a big sand box. He asked his wife to send him dirt ( U.S. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he can have the sweet aroma, and feel the grass grow beneath his feet. When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the American soil — to bring them good luck. Of all the things he could have asked his wife to send to him from home………..he asked for #American #soil.
