Founded in 2011 by Dr. Daniel Bernardi an Iraq War Veteran and cinema scholar, Veteran Documentary Corps (VDC) is a 501 C3 non-profit organization dedicated to telling the veteran story for civilians and veterans alike. Too often war movies, video games, and other media representations that exaggerate military culture by perpetuating the myth of the stoic soldier who suffers in silence on behalf of his or her country are the only representations of veterans most people encounter. As a result, many veterans remain silent about their injuries and struggles. Each VDC documentary features one veteran, and is produced and directed by professional filmmakers often volunteering their time or reducing their rates substantially in order to ensure that veteran’s stories convey honor, artistry and truth. Veterans participate in the editing process and stories come from all areas of service, wars, and nations. VDC documentaries provide truthful accounts that engage viewers in meaningful ways, and promote improved use of services while enhancing veteran-to-veteran and community engagement.
