"Wounded: The Battle Back Home" to be Aired on Netflix

Wounded Warrior Project® Docu-Series “Wounded: The Battle Back Home” is Headed to Netflix
The Series Available Beginning Sunday, February 15

February 12, 2015 - The Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) produced documentary mini-series “Wounded: The Battle Back Home” will become available on Internet television network Netflix starting Sunday, February 15, 2015. The project, produced in conjunction with Austin-based Flow Nonfiction, was created to commemorate the 10th anniversary of WWP and focuses on issues of critical importance to this generation of injured service members and their families through personal stories of struggle and resiliency.

“Wounded: The Battle Back Home” is a documentary series that brings to life the experiences of this generation of wounded veterans as they battle both the visible and invisible wounds of war. Each episode of the series allows viewers to follow these inspiring individuals as they navigate their post-war lives in a society that struggles to understand them and a system that is failing to support them. In addition to physical injuries, the series highlights the invisible wounds that our nation’s service members battle as they transition from the military to civilian life, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and military sexual trauma (MST).

“With ‘Wounded: The Battle Back Home’ now available on Netflix, a new audience will have access to these inspirational and thought provoking stories, highlighting the challenges facing this generation of injured service members, their caregivers, and families,” said Steve Nardizzi, chief executive officer for Wounded Warrior Project. “These documentaries underscore the need for the programs we offer as part of our vision of fostering the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.” Read more here: read more>>>

Wounded: The Battle Back Home

A Country that calls itself a Representative Democracy of the People Really Really has a Huge Problem in Understanding that the Agencies of are them.

They're Responsibility to fully fund, and the direct Representatives they Elect Responsibility is to make sure they are funded sufficiently and given all the help those who've served are promised. So not to cause major problems that snowball and create other problems, causing the important agency funding, under funded for decades, to shift to costly corrections instead of the intended needs.

The oft repeated political 'scandals', from congress to congress to congress........, made for media coverage and personal political enrichment.

How does a Country served, and through their Representatives, avoid blaming themselves, they either totally ignore, PTS, Agent Orange, Gulf War Syndrome and plenty more, or for personal individual enrichment and political status create the political talking points by expertly{?} denying the issues, like PTS, even exist. Finally starting to be addressed, even with the gross under funding, by Gen Shinseki, continuing it seems with McDonald, and with the help of the Obama Executive Administration and it's Cabinet when those Agencies can, they don't control the Countries purse strings Congress does. And the Country, they're Representatives and even Veterans, political ideologies of, wraps itself in both, in blaming the Agency and it's personal, so they can escape their own Sacrifices in their Responsibility, the Veterans Administration!

Tax cuts, especially for the wealthy, while making policy of invasions and long occupations from, as well as the blowback from those policies, is not only irresponsible but is not shared sacrifice of those sent to carry out those policies! And this recent history was compounded by a near total collapse of the economy!

Sen. Bernie Sanders told Conservatives: “If you can’t afford to take care of your veterans, than don’t go war. These people are bearing the brunt of what war is about, We have a moral obligation to support them.” February, 26th, 2014

Neither of these recent wars have yet been paid for, nor the continued blowback from the spread and growth from the policies implemented!
Neither the long term results from, including the long ignored or outright denied existence of, till this Administrations Cabinet and Gen Shinseki, only Government branch consistent for the past six years, Veterans issues from!
As well as under deficits most of the, grossly under funded for decades and the wars from now, VA budget is still borrowed, with interest, thus added problem creating costs, with representative who control the purse strings blaming the mostly dedicated VA personal within, that shouldn't exist!

Theodore Roosevelt, “A man who is good enough to shed his blood for the country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards.” 1903
