SCG is thrilled to offer our members an exceptional opportunity to attend a private screening of Thank You for Your Service followed by a discussion with the filmmakers and other experts.

This provocative documentary examines the impact of post 9/11 service on those we've sent to war. Set for theatrical distribution on September 16th, the film looks at the mental health impact of war by interweaving the stories of four Iraq War veterans, with candid and sometimes controversial interviews with the nation's top military and civilian leaders. The film makes an argument for systemic change -- and offers a much-needed road map for hope.

After the screening, we will have a frank conversation featuring the filmmakers and military mental health and policy experts as we grapple with how the grantmaking community might think about our role at the intersection of policy and veterans’ wellness.

Agenda:
8:30 am – 9:00 am: Breakfast reception
9:00 am – 12 pm: Film screening and panel
