Of Men and War at the Bend Film Festival in Oregon
Last Friday (10/9), Of Men and War screened at the Bend Film Festival to a packed house. From our friends at the festival we've heard that almost everybody that watched the film stayed for a very lively panel discussion afterwards as well.
That panel included Alison Perry, the incredibly eloquent Director of the Central Oregon Veteran's Ranch; John Middlesworth, a Vietnam vet and counselor from the VA who just relocated to Oregon from California where he was very familiar with the Pathway Home and had even counseled one of the men in the film; and Andy Durham, a PTSD counselor and Iraq and Afghanistan veteran. It was a very thoughtful, heartfelt and eye-opening discussion.
We are overjoyed to know that people across the country are interested in learning more about the daily struggles veterans face and how we can be more helpful. You can learn more about the veterans that we worked with by visiting www.pathwayhome.org
