Have you ever felt stuck?

We have felt stuck, unable to move past something at some point. For Veterans, this can often be feeling stuck in war, on active duty, or unable to transition out successfully. 

Today is a powerful episode on how it's not our fault; for most of us, we have never experienced powerful rituals in our life to move from one state to the next. 

Frederick Marx is an internationally acclaimed Oscar and Emmy nominated director/writer with 40 years in the film business. He was named a Chicago Tribune Artist of the Year, a Guggenheim Fellow, and a Robert F. Kennedy Special Achievement Award.

His film HOOP DREAMS (1994) is one of the highest-grossing non-musical documentaries in the United States history. The International Documentary Association named it “The Best Documentary of All Time.”

He recently has released a documentary only on Apple TV called a Veterans Journey Home: Leaving it on the Land
