Film: Fort Bliss, May 11
On May 11th at 6:00 PM, Rob Reilly, Director of Adventure Programming for Camp Kieve Veterans Camp, will be on hand to lead discussions at the showing of the 2014 film Fort Bliss. As a thank you to veterans and their families, Camp Kieve offers family, Vietnam and Women-only Veteran’s camps for those who have experienced the stress of deployment during past and current conflicts. Fort Bliss tells the story of a decorated U.S. Army medic and single mother who struggles to rebuild her relationship with her young son after returning home from an extended tour in Afghanistan.
This presentation is part of the Library of America World War I and America programming grant. Authors, historians, veteran advocates, and veterans will lead discussions and share their experiences in veteran affairs and encourage an open dialogue with audience members.
