The pain and angst of demise, and the downward spiral of PTSD, is often dismissed by the masses because it is a path walked alone. No one is present to witness the internal battle. No one is there when it happens. No one is around to beg someone to stop.
 
Of a Grateful Nation... puts the reality of veteran suicides, and the throes of PTSD, to the forefront of the American mind. Of a Grateful Nation is about a man- once a hero, and now a broken spirit- spiral out of control. Self-medicating with prescription pills and alcohol, a young man- back from a world of war- is unable to cope with a time of peace. He is alone, drugged, drunk, and armed. No one is with him. No one is there to stop him. He is left feeling the abandonment and true separation from the people and the nation he served. This is the reality that an average of 22 veterans face every day; the reality that
Of A Grateful Nation... forces the world to see.
