Free Screening of Award Winning Documentary "The Weight of Honor"

Posted on 11/29/18 by JoAnn Rose, AARP Missouri

AARP in Kansas City and Caregivers on the Homefront are proud to present a free screening of a documentary from Core Issue Productions about military family caregivers and their catastrophically wounded veterans.

Filmed over five years, The Weight of Honor follows the lives of the caregivers of veterans who have been wounded in America’s longest war. Their lives are transformed overnight to 24/7 caregivers tasked with caring for their war-wounded. The film reveals the family dynamic, their relationships before the wounds of war, and now, the uncertainties that lie ahead.

We invite you to join us for this free screening which will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s producers and caregivers. Appetizers will be served.

6:00pm Doors open/Resource Fair
