Author and Army veteran Wes Moore will be in Colorado Springs Friday for a preview screening of his new documentary that will air on Rocky Mountain PBS in May.
The screening is set for 6:30 p.m. Friday at Pikes Peak Community College’s Centennial Campus theater, 5675 S. Academy Blvd.
“Coming Back with Wes Moore” shows troops as they struggle to reintegrate into society after wartime service.
“The series follows the personal lives of soldiers as they search for answers to some of the most difficult questions facing veterans returning from war,” Rocky Mountain PBS said in a news release.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Moore along with local veterans and advocates discussing what coming home is like for troops.
Moore served in Afghanistan with the 82nd Airborne Division and came home to pen the bestselling “The Other Wes Moore”, which compared his success to the life of another man with the same name and a similar background.
