VA: The Human Cost of War

VA: The Human Cost of War

Told through a series of personal stories from veterans and intertwined with deep historical and political analysis from leading scholars and elected officials, the film illustrates the key ways in which the VA, and we as a society, fail our veterans, who, according to Department of Veterans Affairs research, continue to commit suicide at the harrowing rate of 20 veterans per day. The program features interviews with key figures such as: Dr. David J. Shulkin, U.S. Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs; Beto O'Rourke, U.S. Representative, Texas' 16th District, Member of the Committee on Veterans' Affairs; Paul Rieckhoff, First Lieutenant U.S. Army, Ret., Founder and CEO of IAVA; Seth Moulton, Officer Marine Corps, Ret. U.S. Representative, Massachusetts' 6th District; Linda J. Bilmes, Daniel Patrick Moynihan Senior Lecturer in Public Policy, Harvard University; and Jean and Howard Somers, the parents of Daniel Somers, a retired Army Intelligence Officer who served during Operation Iraqi Freedom and committed suicide on June 10, 2013.

Didn't really care about the weak plot and tropes. Good visuals and you'll probably enjoy it if you like Documentary.
