STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Avon Theatre will screen the 2015 documentary "Thank You for Your Service" Wednesday, March 2.
"Thank You for Your Service" takes aim at our superficial understanding of war trauma and the failed policies that result. Director Tom Donahue interweaves the stories of four struggling Iraq War veterans with candid interviews of top military and civilian leaders. Observing the systemic neglect, the film argues for significant internal change and offers a road map of hope.
Interviews include Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Admiral Mike Mullen, Generals David Petraeus and Loree Sutton, Sebastian Junger, Nicholas Kristof, Dexter Filkins, U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Colonels Lawrence Wilkerson and Dave Sutherland.
The film is not rated and its running time is 88 minutes.
The movie begins at 7:30 p.m.. There will be a post-screening Q&A with Donahue, Producer Ilan Arboleda and retired U.S. Navy Commander Mark Russell.
