Movie Screening and Discussion “That Which I Love Destroys Me,” Room 1402
Wed., June 1: 2:30-4:30 p.m.
memorial day 3
That Which I Love Destroys Me is a unique and powerful film by director Ric Roman Waugh. TWILDM is an uncensored look at the current epidemic of PTSD and severe mental trauma that create tremendous challenges for returning service members. A five-year labor of love, TWILDM followed two Special Operations Soldiers as they returned home after fighting in the longest combat campaign in American history only to face a new battle; the effects and stigma of PTSD and reintegration as a whole. But more importantly, the documentary addresses how they’re overcoming these issues.

Our sincere thanks for your continued support of our student veterans and our program.  We hope to see you there!
