You are a inspiration, you're humbleness speaks volumes. An absolute pleasure to have watched and listened to your story. I served with a Regiment who's history was Rorkes Drift, and Sir Tasker Watkins VC. This was very emotional. I devote my time to The Royal British Legion, supporting the families of the fallen, and injured service personnel, and I will share this with them. Thank you Willie Apiata VC. This world needs more people like you.

I tip my cap to you Mr Apiata. You are an ambassador not just for New Zealand but for the people of the world. I would like to thank the people of New Zealand that have put their lives on the line, so that I and others can walk freely in the Countries of our birth.
I found this a very emotional film to watch.
I come from a Scottish town that has 3 VC recipients.

What an awesome man you are Willie Apiata , after watching Australian SASR soldier Ben Robert Smith receive his VC , you men are truly inspirational in a world where there is little honesty and integrity . I am a proud maori living in WA and to all our youngsters in NZ and Australia these men truly are role models .

What an absolutely splendid piece of New Zealand film. Remarkably well-planned, excellently executed, and accompanied by a fine score, it is often deeply moving. Well done, Steven O'Meagher. You've given Willie Apiata and all New Zealand citizens great inspiration and reason for great pride.

You make me proud to be "KIWI" Mr. Apiata.
You are a real hero and set a fine example to New Zealanders worldwide that the actions of one person make a difference to many.
Thank You Willie.
