WORLD PREMIERE In the face of disturbing statistics of military veteran suicides and an epidemic of PTSD, it’s undeniable that America’s soldiers are in the midst of a mental health crisis. Through the stories of several struggling vets, Tom Donahue frankly explores why the military was not better prepared for the impact of combat in Afghanistan and Iraq on our service members, the lessons forgotten from past wars and the need for widescale reform to prevent the loss of a generation of brave men and women.

This screening is co-presented with The Nation.
