AFN to air HBO documentary on PTSD

WASHINGTON - HBO's new documentary about the psychological toll of combat will be aired on AFN this Veterans Day, the same day it premieres in the States.

"Wartorn: 1812-2010" looks at post-traumatic stress disorder through all its incarnations throughout our history: hysteria, melancholia, shell shock, combat fatigue, and now, PTSD. The film shows vignettes about servicemembers from the Civil War through the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Catch the documentary Thursday, Nov. 11, at 8:30 p.m. local time in Europe and Pacific. "Wartorn" will air in Iraq at 10:30 p.m. and in Afghanistan at midnight. For more about the film, its Pentagon premiere last week and to watch the trailer, click here.
