The U.S. military faces a mental health crisis of historic proportions. Thank You for Your Service takes aim at the flawed mental health policies within the Armed Services and their tragic consequences. The film interweaves the stories of four Iraq War veterans with candid interviews of top military, government, and civilian leaders. Observing the systemic neglect to address the current mental health needs of U.S. service members, the film argues for significant internal change and offers a roadmap of hope. Interviews include former Defense Secretary Robert Gates (2006-2011), Admiral Mike Mullen (Ret.), General David Petraeus (Ret.), Brig. General Loree Sutton (Ret.), Sebastian Junger, Nicholas Kristof, Dexter Filkins, Senator Patty Murray, former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani and Colonels Lawrence Wilkerson (Ret.) and Dave Sutherland (Ret.).

Audiences can crowd-source individual screenings of Thank You for Your Service in theaters near them via Theatrical On Demand®. Thank You for Your Service will show in a city only if enough tickets are reserved in advance. To captain a screening, or to find tickets: http://www.tyfysfilm.com/
