This free moving and encouraging evening will cast a bright light on a story too seldom told. Men go to war, but when they return home, the war may come with them. There may be physical injuries, there may be invisible scars, and these impacts will have profound effects on their partners and their families. Support is available. Healing is available Community resources can make a real difference. This film-festival honored film tells this story through the voices of wives of warriors, across multiple arenas of war and conflict, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and Afghanistan. This is our history. It is your mother’s history, your sister’s history, your history. Effects of Post Traumatic Stress resonate with other responders too; police, fire fighters, paramedics, and the parallels will be clear. This film is showing this month in honor of National Recovery Month which affirms: Recovery Happens . . .
Doors open at 6:00 pm with a community resource fair of available helping resources. Film screening begins at 7:15 with a short panel following, featuring local story -sharers and questions and answers.
