This Week’s Guest: Stephanie Seldin Howard, The Weight of Honor
Stephanie is the executive producer, director and writer for the documentary, “The Weight of Honor.” This film is the first comprehensive documentary to chronicle the lives of the caregivers and families of veterans who have been catastrophically wounded in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
The film’s subjects are the spouses, parents and children who give a rare glimpse into their lives, as everyone grapples with finding a “new normal” after the devastating effects of combat-related injuries.
Filmed over 5 years, in many states, this journey reveals the thoughts and struggles of the caregivers tasked with the 24/7 care of once able-bodied and self-assured sons and husbands, but are now dependent on others.
