A recent report from the Department of Veterans Affairs reports that an average 22 vets per day are committing suicide. Hundreds of thousands of men and women are coming home to their families from deployment; more than 20% of them are believed to suffer with PTS.
Project Welcome Home Troops (PWHT) announces the screening of the documentary film Free the Mind on October 24th from 7:30 to 9:40 pm at AMC Loews Georgetown 14 and IMAX, Washington D.C. Free the Mind asks the question: Can veterans, through an innovative technique involving the breath, meditation and yoga, significantly relieve the symptoms of PTS in order to return to a life like the one they had before going war? Tickets can be reserved online only at www.tugg.com/events/5276; general admission is $11. Contributions made at the time of ticket reservation benefit the work of PWHT.
Following the film is an interactive Q&A Session with members of the audience and press who can address their questions to John Osborne, National Director of Project Welcome Home Troops and Rich Low, a combat veteran, who appears in the film.
Event begins at 7:30PM
