For the Fallen - Airs May 23 + May 30

From the independent producer collective Hearing Voices, comes For the Fallen. The host is Green Beret and poet Major Robert Schaefer, U.S. Army Special Forces. This documentary, created in honor of veterans for Memorial Day, features voices of veterans remembering their comrades. We hear troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, reading their emails, poems and journals. We hear the history and sounds of a Military Honor Guard. And we attend the daily ceremony by Belgian veterans honoring the World War I British soldiers who died defending a small town in western Belgium.
