National Veterans Foundation
Dear Friends and Supporters,
We are honored to report that we’ve been nominated for a Voice Award! The Voice Awards are sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) and The Department of Health and Human Services. This year, the emphasis is on the impact of trauma and the significant effects it can have on individuals, families and friends, communities, and our Nation.
Hidden Battles recently screened at The Ethical Society of Westchester (New York) as well as the Ridgewood Film Festival (New Jersey). Hats off to Ridgewood for hosting their first festival, and to The Ethical Culture Society of Westchester and the Westchester County Psychological Association for putting together a beautiful event including a panel discussion of veterans and psychologists. Read coverage of the event from the Westchester Patch here.
Upcoming screenings include The Santa Cruz Film Festival (California) on May 9th and a screening at the Park Slope United Methodist Church (Brooklyn, NY) on June 3rd. Please let your friends, family and colleagues in the area know about these special opportunities to see the film! Just forward them this e-mail. You can find all of the screening details, on our website’s screening page here.

The Hidden Battles Team
Does the act of killing change the person who pulls the trigger? “Hidden Battles” is a 65 minute documentary which follows a female Sandinista rebel, an Israeli officer, a Palestinian freedom fighter and two American soldiers as they come to terms with their combat experiences. The film offers unique insight and hope into the internal conflicts that human beings around the world continue to face long after they have left the battlefield.
