Veterans Coming Home: Military/Civilian Divide

Four documentary shorts from the Veterans Coming Home project look at the military-civilian divide in America. 'Recruiting in Times Square' goes inside the recruitment process, and the unlikely candidates who enlist, including new Americans. 'From War to the Happiest Place on Earth' features an Army veteran who has a picture perfect life and job but wrestles with the demons of post-traumatic stress disorder. 'Invisible Wounds' explores the trauma of military sexual assault, and one survivor who seeks justice and healing. And it's not easy being a queer pacifist Vietnam veteran in 'LGBT Rights and Vets for Peace.' These stories reflect the diverse post-war experience of our veterans, as civilians ask how we can truly support our troops.
