UPI 'Invisible Wounds' Documentary a Thoughtful Veterans' Reflection on the Experience of War

UPI delivers a thoughtful dose of reality and reflection in "Invisible Wounds," a documentary now available online in full.

Hosted by Nick Clooney, Part 1 explores the rigors of combat through the reflections of those who have been sent to wage it through the years. Part 2 takes a look at the aftermath, including PTSD. And Part 3 discusses the road to recovery, and calls on society to help with the homecoming of its veterans.

Details from UPI press release:

Interviews with returning soldiers and their families bring to light the rarely discussed challenges they face back home. Further interviews with Vietnam and World War II vets add perspective to the problem, showing that it is not something new.

The film was created by American Life TV.

These issues impact many American families whose loved ones have dedicated their lives to the service of this nation When you take those who have served and are serving and add all their relatives and dependents you have a huge number of people whose livelihoods and happiness is directly affected by military service. The country owes them a tremendous debt and it is more than fitting that a major news outlet devotes time and space to informing them and the general public on the issues that matter most to them.

UPI is proud to present "Invisible Wounds" on its new U.S. Military Matters feature page... The page will serve the interests and address the concerns of current and past members of all branches of the military and their families.

In educational interest, article(s) quoted from extensively.
