When Milwaukee-based veterans Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson returned home from Iraq, they didn't expect their debilitating battles with depression and anxiety to prove every bit as life-threatening as the war zones they left behind. In an effort to help mend the emotional scars and moral injury they've sustained, the two men set out on an extraordinary journey - a 2,700-mile trek on foot across America, starting off in Milwaukee and ending in California. With suicide rates among veterans at near-epidemic levels (a veteran commits suicide nearly every hour), Almost Sunrise is an inspiring and intimate portrait of two men who journey on behalf of the mental health of fellow veterans. Anthony Anderson will share his journey with our club.
