Update April 2014

Greetings. Since the film received distribution from Film Media Group in Fall 2012, I haven’t put much effort into organizing screenings or distributing the film to individuals, mostly because I was out of the country for eight months and have just been too busy. Colleagues continue to show the film in university classes and invite me occasionally to speak, and the film continues to be screened at a variety of events. The issues in the film are still extremely relevant as combat veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars deal with multiple issues resulting from their time in the military and at war. In the last year or two, the wars seem to be fading from the consciousness of many people in the U.S.. My perception is that fewer people are thinking about the longterm consequences for the people who fought in them. I do hope that folks will continue to watch the film and share it with as many others as possible.
