Duty. Honor. Sacrifice.
These are just three simple words. Three simple words that describe what the military does for the United States, its territories and its people each day. It is a way of life and a mindset. It is (in part) what the American flag stands for and what the servicemen (and women) defend. An amazing person is what comes to mind when I read those words and a person in uniform is what I picture. Lucky for me, I've known many people in (nearly) all branches of the military in my life. Each one makes me thankful that there are men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that others can be safe, maintain their rights, and or come home to their families.
This week at the IMU, Union Board Films, is presenting Thank You For Your Service. This film, released in October 2017, follows multiple soldiers return from Iraq and readjustments to civilian life. It deals with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and both physical and emotional rehabilitation. Thank You For Your Service is a drama/biography, but it is a film that makes you realize that not everything is what it seems on the inside, too. Check out a trailer of it!
I encourage everyone to come see the movie this week (January 25-27) at 9 PM in the Whittenberger Auditorium. I've been looking forward to seeing this movie since the trailer was released. If anything, it will give you a new perspective and respect for all those who are serving and have served.
