In May, during the HillVets 2017 event, The War Horse debuted a short documentary exploring the impacts of government shutdowns on Gold Star families. HillVets advisory board chair and former Defense Secretary and Vietnam veteran Chuck Hagel commented about the impact and timeliness of our reporting:

This is a defining time in our history and our world, and until our society—our leaders—can come together enough to respect each other with at least a modicum of civility and don’t do a dumb thing like shut the government down to cause that type of damage—that kind of unforgivable sorrow—we can do better than that. We’re a better country than that. … Thank you for showing that.
