What I liked

Thank you Matthew Domenico, Katherine Duff, Brock Joseph and Director Chris Game, for breathing life into not only the personal stories you tell, but the stories of those who can’t. You are giving a voice to those we see on the freeway off ramps holding up signs for food, those sleeping in cardboard boxes on skid row, those who die alone in VA hospitals, lost long before to their families and those who have been silenced by the horrors of war.

What I didn't like

N/A

My overall impression

There is much that the American people wake up to every morning. A avalanche of hashtags invade the day vying for attention, but by the time you’ve gotten up for work, taken a shower and eaten your breakfast, a Veteran has committed suicide.
A study done by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs showed that roughly 22 Veterans were dying by suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes. Some sources suggest that this rate may be undercounting suicides. Well, timing is everything as they say and the time is now to showcase the plight of the American Veteran.

I personally thank you from someone who sat home waiting for their son to return and in many ways is still waiting.
Your raw, gritty and sometimes shocking portrayal of who and what sits inside the combat Veteran on a daily basis, is paving a way for a new age of compassion and understanding for what society has deemed “the expendable”. Thank you for your courage to shed light into the darkest corners of a Veterans haunted mind, for it is by that light others may be saved. God Bless you all.
