'Thank you for your service' explores the relationship between incarceration, addiction and sexual violence that are underscored by mental debilitation and suicide in the post-military experience. Filmed by a one-woman-band, the film embeds with three separate veterans and a first responder, showcasing the unique relationship with mental illness in a town with one of the largest active-military and veteran populations in the country and, also, home to one of highest suicide rates in the nation. The narratives are woven together through a Colorado veteran as he documents his suicide on Facebook Live.
