Veterans Journey Home: Kalani's Story

Veterans Journey Home: Kalani's Story

directed by:

Frederick Marx

Veterans Journey Home: Kalani’s Story is the first in a series of short documentaries telling a different story of soldiers returning from war. American veterans struggle to transition back to civilian life with PTSD, addiction, and suicide rates much higher than the general population. Soldiers returning home need “reverse boot camp.” We focus on these new brands of American bravery: bravery to face anguish and loss, fear and rage, paralyzing self-doubt, shame, and even self-hatred. Our series highlights the best people, practices, and programs doing the work necessary to support vets in accomplishing this healing.
