Thank You For Your Service Movie Screening & Movie Review
Written by Lush Radio on October 9, 2017
Thank You For Your Service is an incredibly honest look at the war and its impact; not just on soldiers but on the families that they come home to. The film follows the story of Adam Schumann, who served 3 deployments, his final with the 2-16 Infantry Battalion.
For so many veterans, the phrase ‘thank you for your service’ is a one-off comment. It’s a reflexive statement from the general public who tend to be uncomfortable and unsure about what to say to aptly express gratitude to the veterans they come across.
This film and its story are creating a dialogue around the phrase, ensuring that it’s no longer just a statement but the opening for a discussion.
Thank You for Your Service picks up where American Sniper left off, showing that the war doesn’t end when soldiers come home from deployment.

FB Post Text: Grateful for a movie that tackles this tactfully and honestly— Comcast NBC Universal is doing a great job of bringing awareness to the transition military members endure because as they do accurately state, the war doesn’t end when they come home. Thank You For Your Service is the beginning of a dialogue, no longer the one-off comment you hand to service members. Also, be prepared to cry. (Thanks to David Cohen, Comcast, NBCUniversal &
Dog Tag Bakery for this opportunity.)
