As the War in Iraq enters its fourth year, it’s time for a wider discussion of the costs and consequences of the war in Iraq.
Patricia Foulkrod’s documentary The Ground Truth tells the stories of 10 soldiers as they meet recruiters, join the military, train, serve in Iraq, and return home. Foulkrod documents their experiences dispassionately, trying hard to actually hear those Americans most directly affected by warfare. The film details the psychological, physical, and social fallout of combat; it depicts soldiers’ new needs for support and their struggles to communicate about war with those who know it only through television.
