On the 15th of May 2011, men from the US Army’s 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry Regiment gathered in Naperville, Illinois to bury a friend, brother, and comrade, named Scott Zaur.
Scott, also known as Zeus was an Infantryman, and Sniper in 1/6 Infantry, who honorably served two tours in Iraq. Following his second tour, he was given a general discharge under honorable conditions after struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Substance abuse. He chose to end his life after pursuing treatment for his PTSD and struggling to adapt to civilian life to no avail.
Zeus is just one of seven men who have ended their lives from 1/6 Infantry since 2007. His choice to end his life was an unexpected wake-up call that there is a problem in our ranks.
On average, 18 service members and Veterans choose to end their lives every day. My name is Andrew Nunn and I have made it my personal mission in life to show the world what our men and women in uniform, as well as their families, go through after surviving combat. This is their story. The story of this generations’ Veteran.
This film will be premiering in Austin, Texas* on the 27th of May. For more information contact email@example.com or visit operationzeus.com
