Cornwall Ontario – In support of the long anticipated release of the Friends of Vets Documentary “Breaking the Silence”, the group is hosting a roast beef dinner with all the trimmings on Saturday, April 6th, 2013 to cover the associated costs with the making of the film. The Friends of Vets are pleased to announce that the documentary is near completion and the targeted date for launch is mid April.
The documentary exposes the most pressing issues that veterans, families and other military members, of all ages, are currently facing. The highlights of this documentary present the realities of daily struggles, social isolation, and the lack of public insight on this matter. Vice president of the Friends of Vets, Steven Forrest explains, “It is really all about what they go through, and the public isn’t really aware of all the mental, physical, and emotional aspects they go through. It’s really an eye opening experience”.
A special guest, Mr. Len Hart, a proud 93-year-old World War II Veteran, will speak and share his stories as a war veteran, and his personal experiences with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Hart is part of the R.C.A.F Association Wing 424 and has also served as the association’s president.
The event takes place on Saturday April 6th, 2013 at the R.C.A.F. Association Wing 424 located on 240 Water Street West in Cornwall Ontario. Doors are at 4:30pm, and the dinner will be served at 6pm. Tickets are $20 dollars each, and must be purchased in advance. The deadline to purchase advanced tickets is April 2nd to ensure that all guests can be catered. Tickets are limited, so buy your tickets soon! To purchase or reserve tickets, please contact Mr. Steven Forrest (vice president of the Friends of Vets) at 613-937-4474, Mr Denis Labbe (president of the Friends of Vets) at 613-931-1892 or the R.C.A.F.
