Purple Heart’s Final Beat – A Soldier Suicide Story

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

Winner of Best Short Film of the Year and Best Editing for the Mitten Movie Project 2010, Royal Oak, MI Official Selection of the 2010 Blue Water Film Festival Official Selection of the 2011 Detroit Independent Film Festival, Central Florida Film Festival A cry for help from SecondClassCitizen.org, dedicated to an old friend. This story is far too true, and far too common. Soldiers returning from war, only to be oppressed by the same system they swore allegiance to protect. This film chronicles the last day in the life of one soldier – or many – as countless veterans every month end their lives in desperation. Join the fight against the injustice visited, not just on veterans, but all capable parents robbed of their rights to see their children. Listen to Second Class Citizen founder Terrence Popp on Broadcast50 Podcast Radio: www.broadcast50.com SecondClassCitizen.org LightcraftEntertainment.com Suicide statistics gathered and verified by CBS. All end statistics were verified and collected by a 20-year combat veteran sergeant in the US Army. Non-public records were used in the gathering of these statistics. The federal government does not acknowledge the true numbers and its own statistics do not include Coast Guard, Reserve or National Guard. The public figure of 4.3% veteran divorce rate released is a cover up by the Pentagon. After all, if the standard rate for the population is 50%, how could there be such a drastic difference?
