Description

With 20 veterans dying by suicide every day, the United States military faces a mental health crisis of epic proportions. Tom Donahue’s documentary focuses on four Iraq War veterans who, like thousands of others, are struggling with PTSD. Thank You for Your Service takes aim at the failed mental health policies within the U.S. military and the barriers to receiving proper and effective care and treatment. Donahue explores why the military was not prepared for the impact of combat in Afghanistan and Iraq on our service members, the lessons forgotten from past wars, and the need for wide-scale reform.
