community leaders, experts on veterans’ affairs and celebrity advocates

veterans as they face the challenges of PTSD, family reintegration and
unemployment. Fathom Events and Starfish Media Group present this event

“This is an important conversation because it ultimately lets people
that have not ever been in the military world slowly get light into our
world and to create this important dialog,” said army-veteran and actor
J.R. Martinez.

“The War Comes Home” follows two men on a real-time journey as they
confront their post-war demons through meditation, team building
exercises and therapeutic healing. The exclusive panel discussion that
follows takes the conversation over veterans’ issues one step further as
the panelists explore the challenges of assimilation and look for
solutions. It includes exclusive one-on-one interviews with
actor-director Peter Berg and army-veteran and actor J.R. Martinez.

“This event presents a rare opportunity to shine a light on veterans’
issues with an up-close and personal exploration of those returning from
war and how we can better understand them and assist them in their
healing process,” said Fathom Events Vice President of Programming
Kymberli Frueh. “We ask audiences around the nation to join us in
supporting our vets and raising awareness of this national issue.”

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to share our production ‘The
War Comes Home’ with a new audience,” said Soledad O’Brien, CEO Starfish
Media Group. “The accompanying panel discussion takes the conversation
further, providing concrete answers on how we can better serve our
nation’s veterans.”
