Indianapolis, Ind.— Senator Joe Donnelly announced that his office and WFYI will host a screening on Wednesday, September 3rd in Indianapolis of part of the documentary, “Coming Back with Wes Moore” on servicemembers’  transition home from war. The program highlights challenges facing servicemembers as they reintegrate back into civilian life, including Post-Traumatic Stress. Donnelly will lead a discussion following the screening and explain resources available to servicemembers and veterans if they need to seek help. The screening will take place in the Reuben Community room at WFYI, and is free and open to the public. 

Donnelly, who serves on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said, “Many servicemembers face difficulties adjusting back into civilian life after serving our country. We not only owe our servicemembers the opportunity to come home safely to their families, but also support and access to resources during their transition. I look forward to joining WFYI and interested Hoosiers for this screening to hear servicemembers’ stories and learn about the challenges they confront when returning home.”

Space is limited, and RSVP is required. Individuals interested in attending the screening should contactDonnelly_Events@Donnelly.Senate.Gov. Please see the flyer below for further reference.
