Announcement :: Media : Peace : Protest, Resistance and Direct Action
The Ground Truth- The Human Cost of War
Military slogans and ideals encourage thousands to join our military, and millions more to give unconditional public support when soldiers go to war. Through intimate and candid interviews with returning soldiers of all ranks, veterans, military families, and independent footage and photographs not seen on the news, The Ground Truth looks at the long-term and often invisible effects this war is having on thousands and thousands of nameless, undecorated Americans.

"This war has destroyed me. I come home at night and breakdown. I see pictures of Iraqi children with their limbs gone and wonder, 'Did I have anything to do with this? Was my unit a part of this?"
Lt. Michael Hoffman

"Just to brush my teeth is a task. My post traumatic stress from two wars, coupled with my panic attacks and depression...feeling betrayed by the military just made it worse."
Sgt. Phillip Goodrum

"You hear in the news, ‘Seven Wounded’. You never hear their names or what unit they are in. I was in Mosul when our Humvee was hit. Unfortunately, it had no doors. I’m 24…I lost my left leg.”
Sgt. Melissa Stockwell
