Corlow films’ The Journey Home: A Soldier’s Story is set to make its national television premiere today (11/07), on Great American Country (GAC). Hosted and narrated by Charlie Daniels,the program includes exclusive interviews with friends and family of the returning veterans.
Directed and produced by David Corlew, the veteran filmmaker enlisted writer/co-producer Tim Weeks and editor/director of photography Nathan Shuppert to help bring the patriotic documentary to life. The film also features a special appearance by Major General Terry “Max” Haston, Adjutant General of the Tennessee National Guard.
“I am honored to team with GAC’s Sarah Trahern and Suzanne Gordon to tell the stories like these that need to be told,” said Corlew. “Through this process, we’re hoping to inspire our communities to reach out, and in some small way, to support the men and women who choose to serve and protect our nation.”
The compelling documentary follows the lives of several U.S. Army and Marine veterans as they return home from the combat zones of Iraq and Afghanistan to find a new set of challenges awaiting them: rehabilitation from lasting physical and emotional injuries and re-integration into civilian life as they search for a new future.
