Candace Cameron Bure, GAF Honor Military Heroes with MY CHRISTMAS HERO Premiere
By Movieguide® Contributor
Great American Family and Candace Cameron Bure teamed up for a special premiere of their movie MY CHRISTMAS HERO to honor real military heroes.
“We truly enjoyed the opportunity to salute these real Christmas heroes as the premiere of MY CHRISTMAS HERO on the joint Base,” Bure said in a press release. “It was fitting to host this screening here at JBLM because that’s where the movie’s story is set.”
The red-carpet event was held on Nov. 15 at the joint Army and Airforce base Lewis-McChord in Washington state.
“In MY CHRISTMAS HERO, US Army reservist and orthopedic physician, Nicole Ramsey (Bure) is dedicated to serving military service members and their families at the Joint Military Base in Lacey, Washington, home of I Corps and the 62nd Airlift Wing. This Christmas, with the help of many dedicated heroes, Dr. Ramsey is on a mission to honor a special fallen soldier and bring much needed healing to her own family,” Great American Family summarized.
The movie will air on Great American Family the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 24, at 8 p.m. EST / 7 p.m. CST.
Great American Family recently enjoyed its eleventh month of explosive growth, making it TV’s fastest-growing network.
“Great American Media provides quality family-friendly programming that celebrates faith, family and country, and our unique partnership with Candy Rock allows us to produce best in class content,” said Great American Media CEO and President Bill Abbot.
“To be able to celebrate Christmas and this movie with the everyday heroes who selflessly serve our country was truly special for both Candace and me,” he continued. “MY CHRISTMAS HERO is at the heart of who we are as a network.”
This movie marks one of many that will fill out this year’s Great American Christmas.
Building on last year’s massive success, Great American Christmas 2023 features 20 original holiday movies that emphasize family, faith and hometown values. This year also stars fan favorites, including Candace Cameron Bure, Danica McKellar, Lori Loughlin, Jen Lilley, Trevor Donovan and more.

Great American Family CEO Bill Abbott recently talked about why the network continues to find success as it gears up for its Christmas season following a year of massive growth.
“First and foremost, it was awareness and growing the brand,” CEO Bill Abbott explained. “It doesn’t happen overnight. And so it’s taken a long time to just make people aware that we’re even in business. Then I think it’s the family-friendly content. There was not a lot of it out there. The family-friendly piece of it is essential to our success.”
He continued, “One of the biggest parts of our growth has been our talent, and the fact that we have such recognizable stars in our stable of talent — and that they are relentless in promoting Great American Family. That, in and of itself, has created the awareness necessary to grow like we have.
We are a crowdfunded organization, supported by people like you. These are some of the reasons why our supporters choose to give.
“They uphold God and tell us the truth about movies and TV shows. “
