The Ville Platte Rotary Club Tuesday heard from Anita Sugimura who has prepared a documentary film entitled “Battlefield: Home Breaking the Silence”.
She is a native of California, how residing in Lafayette to care for her mother. The film discusses the challenges veterans face as they transition to a civilian life and the impact on their families.
Her father was a Viet Nam veteran who returned back to Lafayette. She relates in the film the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, sociological and psychological issues of a military family once a soldier returns home.
The film is being shown in community town halls to help educate families who are facing similar issues.
She was the guest of Rotarian Nicole Wenger.
