Director Matthew Hausle adds, “It was a privilege to bring to the public the storied legacy of the 'Stars and Stripes' military newspaper. It is truly the voice of the men and woman who risk their lives to protect our freedom."

“We are so proud to be releasing The World’s Most Dangerous Paper Route just in time for Memorial Day,” says Vision Films CEO/Managing Director Lise Romanoff. “It is a very important film that gives us a close up view of the determination and bravery of the individuals that support our troops on the front lines.”
