A film, “Taking the Hill: A Warrior’s Journey Home,” will be shown Wednesday, May 23, at 6:30 p.m. at the Liberty Theatre.
Admission is free.
Over the years, Raul Ries, a military veteran (U.S. Marine Corps) has reached out to those who are serving or have served in our armed forces. He has spoken to countless men and women from various theaters of military conflict, after their return home.
In 2006, 40 years after fighting in the jungles of Vietnam, Ries experienced flashbacks for the first time. Subsequently, he found three of the men closest to him, who fought alongside of him in the Marine Corps unit ALPHA 1/7, and who have suffered the consequences.
Together again, they are taking the hill and finding healing.
Ries’ desire to help those who have experienced combat continued to grow and became a passion.
This documentary is intended to lead warriors on the path in their journey home.
