The Ground Truth : The Human Cost Of War

Sometimes the greatest act of courage is to tell the truth

In the opening scenes of Patricia Foulkrod’s powerful documentary, we’re introduced to a number of young soldiers who speak candidly and powerfully about the motivations that led them to join the military. As their stories unfold, we hear their surprised reactions to boot camp and combat training as they were taught to dehumanize their enemy, to “kill hadjis and ragheads.”

“The Ground Truth” is a documentary that should be watched by everyone who has a friend, relative or loved one who’s served–or is about to serve–in Iraq and Afghanistan.
