Below is a piece that I created that address the issue of veteran suicide. Recent studies and reports have shown that an average of 22 (estimated higher, around 26) veterans commit suicide everyday. Suicide has also recently topped the leading cause of service member deaths since the United States wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The video borrows clips from the news and media, movies, as well as personal photos and videos taken while overseas and back at home.
The video clips below are pieces from a documentary, Eyes On, that I have yet to finish. I plan on finishing the final piece before January 2017.
The pieces below were filmed in Helmand Province Afghanistan from November 2009 through May 2010.
