Finally! A film that reveals the demons that so many of our soldiers are forced to battle when they return from war. Chris Martini has raised the bar for other filmmakers seeking to tell the stories of our real-life heroes. Sadly, the moral battles played out in this film happen each and every day throughout our country. A country that far too often casts aside its used-up soldiers as if they were spent shell casings left lying on the battlefield. Most of our soldiers come home, but many like Murphy O’Shea, are never able to leave the war behind. The O’Shea family will touch your heart. A close-knit family, fiercely proud of their military heritage, yet conflicted by the apathy they experience from the country that sent them to war. This movie has it all; love, laughter, tears, and more. It also reveals the ugly truth about the health hazards of modern warfare. This is a film that the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs would prefer you not see. The surprise ending is intensely thought-provoking. Two thumbs up and five gold stars to Chris Martini and his production team!

Interesting looking film. I'm afraid it might be a little much for me right now though. Explosion in the trailer nearly made me drop my lap top. Funny now 20 minutes later :D

Trooper will hit the hearts and souls of all veterans who have come back home with illnesses caused by modern warfare. From Agent Orange to DU, it's NOT about the soldiers health, it's about the financial liability the government incurs if a soldier's war-related illnesses become service-connected. The battle with the VA bureaucracy will last longer than any soldiers war time service. Here's hoping the rest of this movie is as good as the trailer. Chris, thank you for telling the story!
