What's new with High Ground:
Following an incredible start, with ravereviews coming in from the NY Times, LA Times, and many more,HighGroundcontinued with a series of screenings to raise awareness for veterans and families. Our storyabout 11 wounded warriors after war has played for organizations,universities, film festivals, woundedwarrior units, corporations,andmuseums.Recently, we partnered with TheWalt Disney Family Museum,V.E.T.S @SFSU, The Coming HomeProject, and City College of SanFrancisco Veterans Alliance. Despitetorrential rain, people came to TheWalt Disney Museum to see the film. Here’s Co-Producer and United Airlines pilot Matt Murray with United Airlines flight mechanic Tom Ballard,a Gold Star Dad who came to honor the memory and tell us about his son,the late LT Ken Ballard (US Army, OIF). We were especially touched whenhe showed us the jacket he was wearing, which had been his son’s.
