Searching For Home, Coming Back From War

Like most of us, I grew up developing a strong love of the movies. I'm a boomer, so I've been around long enough to be aware of, enjoy, and appreciate many classic movies and actors, and all levels of cinematic achievement. Everything from the silents, to the 30's-40's-50's favorites, and beyond. And, of course, with the advent of home video, TCM, and many other movie channels, it's possible to see and enjoy just about any movie you want to, over and over again. Many of my favorites have been in the "war movie" genre. Some are very special to me, among them, To Hell and Back, Saving Private Ryan, Patton, and The Deer Hunter. It's pretty hard to watch movies like these and not be deeply effected by the people and events we're witnessing. The truth that human beings are able to somehow muster the level of courage, strength, and discipline needed to pick up a weapon and boldly engage an enemy in battle, is to me one of the most profound enigmas of life. And yet, there are always those events in the world where someone has to do it. Though it's easy at times to just sort of brush off the idea and get back to our daily lives, the truth is sooner or later, someone is going to have to heed the call again. I think it's important for us to be aware of the reality of this, and time well spent visiting with some of the heroes who've been willing to protect us and carry our burdens through very tough and often overwhelming circumstances. They are uniquely qualified to enlighten us on the cost of war and a constant reminder that we need to be grateful for their service while we continue to aid in their recovery. Eric Christiansen has done a masterful job in bringing forth this powerful, moving, and important documentary that reaches out and grabs us by the heart and soul. There is nothing more important than this and we all need to continue to take a hard look at what we're doing to support our men and women in the military. They need to know that we're marching right next to them in the field...and we're here for them when they come home.


Powerful documentary. Well researched and shot with an appropriately dramatic flair, Searching for Home is compelling art with a plea for helping those suffering from PTSD. Rich stories and vignettes weaved with battle footage, tears and trauma, this moving film is a call to action to help our deserving veterans.

Searching For Home - Review

I attended a recent screening of this film and highly recommend it. It is emotional, moving, spiritual and heart breaking at times. For us civilians, we come away with a greater understanding of what these Vets have endured for our freedom. This film has the potential to bring visibility to thousands of Vets, in terms of support and medical advancements that can assist them in their recovery. God bless this film and our Vets!
