OPERATION WARD 57 To Bring War Veteran Documentary HIGH GROUND to Lakewood & Gig Harbor Washington
Event to raise awareness of veteran issues and benefit recovering wounded soldiers
HIGH GROUND, a documentary about 11 wounded warriors and 1 Gold Star mother who climb a mountain in the Himalayas will be brought to town for two special events to benefit OPERATION WARD 57 on THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4TH AND OCTOBER 25TH, 2012 in LAKEWOOD & GIG HARBOR – WA.
The film focuses on veterans, who after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, now live with life altering injuries, both seen and unseen. High Ground follows them as they train in Colorado, to Nepal, and up Mt. Lobouche. Along with recounting their wartime experiences, the veterans find teamwork, friendship, and healing on the journey. Almost all branches of the military are represented in High Ground, which also provides viewers with breathtaking vistas of the Himalayas.
“We’ve excited about this event. High Ground shows everyone the bravery veterans bring from the battlefield and into their every day lives,” said Brittney Hamilton of Operation Ward 57, a nonprofit serving critically injured soldiers.
HIGH GROUND was produced by Don Hahn (Lion King, Frankenweenie), and directed by five-time Everest climber, and three-time Emmy winner Michael Brown. Associate producer Matt Murray is a Gulf War veteran of the USAF, a United Airlines pilot, and a mountain climber as well.
