Join Maryland Public Television for a preview screening of Debt of Honor: Disabled Veterans in American History, a documentary by award-winning filmmaker Ric Burns that illuminates the struggles and triumphs of disabled veterans in American History.

MPT will screen the first part of the documentary followed by a panel discussion hosted by filmmaker Ric Burns.  Come, learn about disabled veterans from our local communities. 

Debt of Honor: Disabled Veterans in American History examines the way in which the American government and society have regarded disabled veterans throughout history, beginning in the aftermath of the Revolutionary War and continuing through today’s conflicts in the Middle East. The film combines personal stories, told by distinguished disabled veterans, with contextual history provided by leading scholars in the fields of disability studies, history, and psychology.  The film underscores the human cost of war and the enormous sacrifices of those who enter military service. These sacrifices are brought to life in the documentary through hundreds of carefully curated still images and archival footage.
