Special Screening: THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE

THANKYOUFORYOURSERVICE-KEYComing to NYC’s JCC Manhattan CineMatters series tomorrow, Tuesday, June 28: THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE

Tom Donahue’s exploration of the psychological toll taken on America’s veterans made its world premiere at DOC NYC last year. Screenings have followed at Miami, Montclair, Big Sky Doc, Santa Barbara, GI Film Festival, Illuminate, and the upcoming Maine Film Festival.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
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.
