Where Soldiers Come From is a documentary from filmmaker Heather Courtney about the young men(and women) who fight our wars. Unconcerned with the politics, Courtney’s film is rather a look at the effect of war on the families, community and soldiers themselves. I plan to catch this while it’s playing here in Los Angeles and if you live in any of the other select cities it’s playing in I hope you’ll go see it as well. Coming from a small rural community, I know many men both young and old, who have returned from overseas only to find that the battle has come back with them only it’s fought inside. If you know someone who has served or even just run into someone on active duty in the airport, thank them for all that they do, they’ll appreciate it more than you’ll ever know. I couldn’t embed the trailer so click the pic to watch it on the film’s press site.
