Iron Will: Veterans' Battle with PTSD

1h 37m ā€¢ Documentary ā€¢ 2023

Iron Will is a journey into the minds and lives of Veterans suffering with some for of Post Traumatic Stress (PTS). Our mission is to bring awareness and support to Veterans by honestly sharing their personal stores and daily struggles. Post traumatic stress (disorder), ie PTSD claims the lives of over 20 veterans a day in the USA. Veterans are on a mission to have the ā€œDā€ dropped from PTSD. They do not have a disorder but a natural reaction to a traumatic event.

Iron Will helps veterans and civilians better understand the impact of PTS on veterans and their families.
