Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country's cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.
Thank you, vets!
Yesterday, PBS showed a new documentary about disabled vets in American history. You can watch it on the PBS site here.
“The goal of this film is to try to understand the realities and challenges that disabled veterans have faced throughout history and continue to face today,” says director Ric Burns. “There is a real necessity to bridge the gap between civilians and those who have served in the military. It is our hope that the film will encourage a candid discussion in communities across the country, and create understanding and awareness of the sacrifices involved in military service.”
Lois Pope, the film’s underwriter, says, “This film is about the human costs of war. It should serve to remind and educate all of us about the courageous men and women who have sacrificed parts of their bodies and minds fighting for our country.”
