    I would like to have the DVD. My children was acutely affected by their father’s behavior. I purchased Ken Burns series however due to painful memories they have not chosen to watch. Hopefully I will be able to get them to watch this.

      Thank you for your interest, and for sharing your story. You will see much of what you mention in the film, which covers WWII wives through to the recent war era. We thought the Ken Burns series was well done, and will give your kids a better idea of the history and what your husband experienced. I will add you to our email list so you will know when the DVD is available. Again, thank you.

    This is my 2nd comment. I read the excerpts of the ladies interviewed. Sadly I did not see a narrative about women who were emotinally abused or war issues that surfaced later in the marriage that became impossible to kive with. Many families were broken when a veteran had emotional breakdowns after silently struggling to acclimate to the “home” environment. These were correctly diagnosed as Morally Injured. Therefore divorce, use of substances later in life etc. traumatized and devastated their grown children. Some are still in therapy in their 40’s trying to make sense of what happened to their father after he lived years as an upstanding citizen. At his funeral we all come into the realization for the first time that we were a military family. He never spoke of Viet Nam.

    Please email me with the option to purchase the DVD. My husband served with some of the men of some of the wives in your documentary. Thank you for making this. Its time people see behind the scenes of real life after war.
