"We have the ability to pierce the darkness of denial: our society's and our own."

~ Claude AnShin Thomas.

Since Tuesday's launch, 'After The War' has received pledges from 51 extraordinary people, and we're a little more than a quarter of the way to reaching our goal. This is remarkable and truly humbling.

Thank you, everyone, for your interest and support. Please continue to help us get the word out there -- we take none of this for granted! -- and thank you for being part of "After The War.'

All the best to you and yours,

Mary, Henry and Sam

    There’s a powerful image in the trailer of a solider holding out his dog tags. It’s a self-portrait by our friend, Chris Barker, who served in Iraq for 17 months with the 172nd Stryker Brigade. You’ll receive a note card with Barker’s portrait, a personal thank-you from the director and a souvenir AFTER THE WAR postcard.
