The Raw Stories of Men and Women of Valor
(formerly Hidden Wounds)


Resilience - The Documentary (formerly Hidden Wounds)

Our WHY – it is imperative as a community, to demystify the reality of the great transition and shed light on the true military and veteran experience.  We want to debunk stereotypes of the broken Veteran and highlight the “authentic hero” in action after they serve.

We are in production now and have conducted close to 50 life changing interviews - we have a sense of urgency to support and empower our nations’ heroes and highlight real solutions to those who are empowered and to inspire others to become  empowered.  

We have also listened to Veteran stories of triumph through tremendous adversity.  This film was formerly named “Hidden Wounds” because Hidden Wounds is NOT the whole story. 

The Veteran stories we filmed all shared a common thread of resilience. This caused deep reflection in how we wanted to portray Veterans.  We interviewed people who were or are still a bit impacted by adversity, but in the midst, are drastically changing their course.  Their military experience indubitably gave them fortitude - it is ingrained, a true strength immeasurable. The title change is fitting. 

Through our film RESILIENCE, we aim to reach 10 million Veterans and their families with this message.

Our Timeline literally depends on our supporters. What constitutes "Normal" and getting back to it have one element in common -The Journey - to begin the journey can be an insurmountable task. One may never want to take that first step out of fear of being stigmatized or fear of the unknown. Nonetheless the Journey is so worth it when you come to the other side... ​ ​22% of all proceeds earned from documentary sales and awards will go back to nonprofits featured in the film after all production expenses are paid.
