Two Iraq veterans walk 2,700 miles to find peace in new documentary film | NavyTimes

While trekking 2,700 miles from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Santa Barbara, California, two Iraq War veterans find redemption and forgiveness in a new PBS documentary premiering on Nov. 13.

The film — “Almost Sunrise” — follows Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson as they learn to cope with “moral injuries” from combat, the film‘s Emmy-nominated director, Michael Collins, told Military Times. You can watch the film’s trailer here.

“Post-traumatic stress disorder is really associated with fear-based trauma, like shock to your nervous system,” Collins said. “Moral injury has more to do with guilt and shame associated with actions that you have to take or actions that you don’t take, but essentially throw off your moral compass.”
