Director Statement

This is a documentary that I’m beyond passionate about and so proud of. I’m honored to be able to tell my father’s story, which is the same story that many soldiers have but can’t express. I hope this documentary reminds people, especially soldiers and veterans, that asking for help is ok and that there are resources out there for them.
