The Shawnee State University Chapter of Student Veterans of America will present a free showing of the movie, Project 22, at 7 p.m. on March 15 in the Flohr Lecture Hall of the Clark Memorial Library.
Project 22 was a 22-day and 6,500 mile motorcycle awareness campaign from San Francisco to New York City set out by two combat-wounded veterans, Daniel and Doc, to raise awareness of the high rate of suicides within the Veteran community. As they traveled across the country, they spoke to other veterans, as well as healthcare providers, educators, experts in warrior culture and combat stress, and researchers of Traumatic Brain Injury and Post Traumatic Stress. The movie includes ways veterans found help and support for their problems, including techniques such as Equine Therapy, Military Therapy Dogs, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and much more. Project 22 was entirely crowd-funded via an IndieGoGo campaign and private donations. It is a Medicinal Missions production sponsored by The Heart Productions.
