You Can Help Us Lift Veteran Voices.
Many of those who served in Vietnam suffered in a conspiracy of silence – not out of shame, but by bitter experience, brought on by the hostility of their countrymen. Most Vietnam Veterans returned home to emptiness & ridicule, where they were left to a nation increasingly uncomfortable with their presence. These Vietnam Veterans discovered, astonishingly, that a good portion of their country had rejected them with overwhelming contempt.
“Silent Dignity” presents an extraordinary collection of Vietnam Veterans and their spouses, each telling their own, personal story on how the war affected their families — Many haven’t spoken about the darkness and trauma for over 50 years. Our documentary provides a platform for our Vietnam Veterans to assist in bringing a bit of closure to their experiences by talking and sharing. And, in hopes that other Vietnam Vets will see this, open up and allow themselves a small portion of vitally important closure. This documentary is about healing.
