AVONDALE, Ariz. - A movie about the war in Afghanistan hits select theaters Friday and part of the storyline surrounds the death of an Arizona solider.

Father and son journalists went into the war zone with elite Army and Marine Corps troops to document the battles and Specialist Dustin Feldhaus died in one of those battles.

Specialist Feldhaus was only 20-years-old.  He was born in Glendale and he graduated from Deer Valley High School.  In this film, audiences will learn about his final days fighting for our country.

"His unit was inserted on the top of a mountain top and Dustin's squad was detailed in overwatch position," said Dustin's father, Bernie Feldaus.  "When they got to the bottom of the valley, there was an ambush position waiting for them... Dustin was hit five times.  It was quite literally a hornet's nest."

Bernie lost his son to war on March 29, 2011.

"The last thing he said before he shipped off to basic training was that he was more afraid of sitting on the couch and accomplishing nothing than he was of going to war and possibly dying."

Bernie now remembers his little boy, saying he wanted to be a soldier at just 5-years-old.  Anyone who walks through the front door of his Avondale home will find photos of Dustin, along with his gear.

Bernie says he misses Dustin's smile, his wit and his smell.

He hopes that seeing "The Hornet's Nest" will remind Americans why his son, and so many others have died.

"They had a cause that they believed in and I think that was a cause a lot of people have forgotten about.  This has lingered on for 13 years now and I think people have forgotten why we went there in the first place."

The film is coming to Phoenix on May 23.
