"Where Soldiers Come From" Film, by Heather Courtney

7 p.m. Nov. 12, 2014
SSB Auditorium

Written by Heather Courtney

Sponsored by Student Veterans Organization

From a snowy small town in Northern Michigan to the mountains of Afghanistan and back, "Where Soldiers Come From" follows the four-year journey of childhood friends, forever changed by a faraway war.

A film about growing up, "Where Soldiers Come From" is an intimate look at the young men who fight our wars and the families and town they come from. Returning to her hometown, Director Heather Courtney gains extraordinary access following these young men as they grow and change from reckless teenagers, to soldiers looking for roadside bombs in Afghanistan, to 23-year-old veterans dealing with the silent war wounds of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and PTSD.
