The NYC Dept of Veterans’ Services will be screening the film American Veteran at the USS Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum on May 15, 6pm, for National Military Appreciation Month.
America’s wars in Iraq & Afghanistan have created a new population of American veterans: service members so severely wounded they would have died in previous wars, but survive because of advanced medical technology. Sgt Nick Mendes was paralyzed from the neck down by an IED and suffers from PTS. The film follows his recovery and sometimes harrowing, sometimes romantic, and often surprisingly funny life.
