Four Films for Veterans Day


November 11, 2011

As you take the day to honor our veterans, here are some of FRONTLINE’s documentaries on the experiences of U.S. soldiers:

Bad Voodoo’s War [2008]

FRONTLINE looks at the war in Iraq through the eyes of a platoon of National Guard soldiers, who filmed their experiences with their own video cameras.

The Wounded Platoon [2010]

Third Platoon, Charlie Company: What happened to them in Iraq, and what happened when they came home.

Educating Sergeant Pantzke [2011]

For-profit colleges promise veterans a high-quality degree — but do they deliver?

The Soldier’s Heart [2005]

FRONTLINE explored the psychological cost of war and investigated whether the military is doing enough to help combat veterans coming home.

Bonus: A rare look into the lives of Air Force drone pilots, who fought on the front lines of the war in Afghanistan — from a base less than an hour from Las Vegas.
