Who Will Stand is a two-hour documentary produced and directed by Phil Valentine. The film chronicles the journey of soldiers returning from battle physically and psychologically wounded.
Many of these courageous veterans spiral into homelessness, unemployment, divorce, substance abuse, hopelessness and suicide. The documentary goes further to profile some non profit organizations struggling to meet the needs of affected veterans.
The film will be shown today in Los Angeles. Find out more about Who Will Stand at this website.
Here's a video clip of the film's song, "Who Will Stand" performed by Clint Holmes.
On this Veteran's Day, let us all give thanks for the courage of those who put themselves in harm's way for us and pray for healing — physical and psychological — for all those who suffer because of their military service.
