A few years ago my wife and I watched a documentary about our involvement in UNPROFOR.  There was a lot of vets interviewed and they were very candid about the conditions that we served under.  I can't for he life of me remember the nameof the documentary or even who produced it.  Is there anyone here that remembers the documentary or even better, where to find it?

Cheers,
John

I was in a film that was made about "combat stress" in the 90s.. not sure if it was public or not.

Is that what you're looking for?

I think I saw that video on a course, possibly BMQ.  Was their reenactments of troops on patrol, etc in the video as well?

Well that's a start.  Do you guys think it was produced by DND (doubtful because many of the interviewees were very critical of the government) or just used by DND?

Cheers,
John

I have found a couple of leads.  DND produced a documentary called "Witness to Evil" but that seems to deal with Rwanda and The Passionate Eye did one called "Crash Landing" (discussed in another thread elsewhere on this site).  I have a friend who works for the CBC checking into the Passionate Eye documentary for me.  I'll everyone updates as I find more information.

Thank you for the links but it's not the one I'm looking for.  The Crash Landing link has a title of Opertion Homecoming when you watch the video.  I'm looking for a video about UNPROFOR in Yugoslavia.
I'll keep looking, thanks again.
Cheers,
John
