Life After Service: Honoring North Idaho Veterans
A Community event dedicated to honoring North Idaho veterans and offering an opportunity to learn about veteran resources. On Veterans Day 2011, local film makers, Mike and Alicia Strain, embarked on a project honoring North Idaho veterans. Their goal was to document stories and memories told by veterans of all ages and experiences. 19 interviews later, they captured diverse and inspiring stories ranging from WWII veterans to recently returning Iraq veterans, and also uncovered in-depth perspectives of the challenges facing veterans returning to a rural community. From transition back to civilian life, to local resources, to how veterans give back to Sandpoint’s community, this film captures the essence of North Idaho veterans.
