"Bring Them Home helps us shed light on the ugly, the good and the hope in a creative way. The ugly; when America sees us as damaged goods and no longer cares that we got damaged protecting her. The good; what veterans and community can do for eachother when we recognize that we must walk through the darkness with each other to reach that light at the end of the tunnel. The hope; what keeps us alive in our darkest hour. What let’s us know that we are not forgotten." - Danitza James, Executive Director of Repatriate Our Patriots
"In the 15 years since the discovery of the Deported Veteran in Tijuana MX, several filmmakers have documented this issue. Bring Them Home is the most comprehensive, informative and accurate film to truly articulate the journey and travels of United States military veterans living in forced exile, and the quests to return home." - James L. Smith II, Exec. Dir, Black Deported Veterans of America
