American Veterans: Discarded and Forgotten (USA, 2hr 15min)
Directed by: Richard Polonetsky
Award-winning filmmaker, Gary Null PhD exposes the American government's legacy of abuse and neglect of its soldiers and veterans. Dr. Null explores the truth about Gulf War Syndrome - a horrific condition affecting thousands of soldiers and their families and the disturbing secrets that the government is hiding from the public. You'll learn how the deadly and toxic effects of armor-piercing radioactive depleted uranium, the use of experimental vaccines on over 1.1 million soldiers and chemical and germ warfare contributed to this debilitating, deadly condition. You'll see how our brave soldiers were sent into war with ineffective protective equipment and were lied to at every step. You'll hear the truth from doctors, scientists, military analysts and the veterans who are still suffering from the effects of their tours of duty while the government denies any accountability for this illness with thousands of veterans still not receiving the medical care or support that they desperately need.
Dr. Null also reveals the epidemic of homelessness affecting our American veterans today. Shockingly, thousands of veterans are mired in poverty, suffering with physical and psychological illnesses and are living on the streets and in the woods throughout America. See the tragic story of these forgotten men and women and the few dedicated people who are committed to helping them in their plight.
