Student Veterans Promote Suicide Awareness With Free Showing of "Project 22" Movie

VERMILLION, S.D. -- The Student Veteran Resource Center at the University of South Dakota will host a double screening of the documentary "Project 22" on Monday, April 18 at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Vermillion Coyote Twin Theater.

The screening is free admission to the public with free-will donations accepted, all contributions go to benefit the Sioux Falls Berakhah House for homeless veterans. The screening is sponsored, and is co-hosted by the U.S. Veterans Motorcycle Club in a collaborative effort to promote military suicide awareness to the community. A viewer discretion of 16+ is recommended.

During a 6,500-mile journey, two combat veterans ride motorcycles across the country, discovering holistic methods of post-traumatic growth and meeting inspirational warriors who have overcome extreme difficulties to thrive in their lives post-military. This non-profit documentary, co-directed by combat veterans, responsibly explores challenges warriors encounter and serves as a catalog of hope that will benefit veterans, families and anyone who has dealt with trauma, loss or depression.
