Vietnam veterans came home from an unpopular war to indifference or hostility. They have spent five decades holding their stories and their memories inside. For many, this has wreaked havoc on their lives.
"APACHE BLUES: Welcome Home" is an 18 month, 22,000 mile journey to sit down with the men of Alpha Troop 1/9 and listen to their stories. For many, it was the first time in 47 years they had ever talked about their experiences. The therapeutic effect that these talks had on their lives has been undeniable.
It is our hope that this film will encourage more and more veterans to be willing to talk about their experiences and more and more friends and family members will be willing to listen. It is never too late to talk and it is never too late to tell a veteran, "Welcome home".
