HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hundreds of soldiers at Camp Shelby will get to see a locally produced movie, free if charge, thanks to a Hattiesburg bank.

The First is donating 480 tickets to soldiers for the premiere of Last Ounce of Courage.

That film, produced by Laurel couple Richard and Gina Headrick, opens Friday at 1,400 theaters around the country.

"It's an indication of the relationship between Camp Shelby and the community and that's an outstanding relationship that we're very proud of," said Col. Brad Smith, commander of Camp Shelby.

"We're just really happy to be able to give them a little relaxation and enjoyment over this weekend," said Hoppy Cole, president and CEO of The First.  

Some Camp Shelby administrative staff have already seen the movie.
