In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film Farmer/Veteran, Alex Sutton, who did three tours of duty in Iraq and suffers from PTSD, talks about his childhood and family. We learn that his grandfather served in the Korean War and suffered from shellshock and hatred of Koreans. Alex has similar issues but says he’ll do his damndest not to show his kids that side. In this clip Alex, in a moment of panic, after talking about memory loss, admits he almost shot up the filmmakers’ car after forgetting whose it was.
