San Francisco's chapter of Veterans for Peace and Iraq Veterans Against the War are collaborating to bring you a powerful documentary about real Americans going to fight our war in Afghanistan, and will be followed with a discussion by some of our members.

"From a snowy small town in Northern Michigan to the mountains of Afghanistan and back, WHERE SOLDIERS COME FROM follows the four-year journey of childhood friends, forever changed by a faraway war.

A documentary about growing up, WHERE SOLDIERS COME FROM is an intimate look at the young men who fight our wars and the families and town they come from. Returning to her hometown, Director Heather Courtney gains extraordinary access following these young men as they grow and change from teenagers stuck in their town, to 23-year-old veterans facing the struggles of returning home."

Iraq Veterans Against the War has been spearheading a national campaign called "Operation Recovery", which is devoted to stopping the re-deployment of traumatized troops. Our servicemembers are seeing multiple deployments, even after experiencing severe traumatic brain injury, post traumatic stress, and military sexual trauma which adds tremendous stress to the individual and their already daunting process of recovery.

IVAW SF is fundraising to send a delegation to the Operation Recovery convergence at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas in order to bring the campaign home to the bay.
