America's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have created a new population of American veterans: service members so severely wounded they would have died in previous wars, but who survive because of advanced medical technology. Sgt. Nick Mendes was paralyzed from the neck down by an IED and suffers from PTSD. American Veteran follows his recovery and sometimes harrowing, sometimes romantic, and often surprisingly funny life.All screenings followed by conversation.
