The Weight of Honor

- Time: 11:30 AM CT

Filmed over five years, The Weight of Honor follows the lives of the caregivers of veterans who have been catastrophically wounded in America’s longest war. Their lives are transformed overnight to 24/7 caregivers tasked with caring for their war-wounded. The film reveals the family dynamic, their relationships before the wounds of war, and now, the uncertainties that lie ahead.
A Q&A will follow the 56 minute screening featuring Stephanie Seldin Howard, director; Col. Dave Lewis, Institute for Peace and Conflict, TTU; and Dr. Sarah Wakefield, Director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Services, TTUHSC.
The screening of this film is made possible by the generous sponsorship of the TTUHSC Office of Global Health, the TTUHSC Department of Psychiatry, the TTUHSC Veterans Resource Center, the TTU Institute for Peace and Conflict, and the TTU College of Media & Communication.
This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP is necessary.
