A moving tribute to the history of disabled veterans, Debt of Honor takes an unflinching look at the reality of warfare and disability, featuring interviews with some of the country's most prominent disabled veterans, including Representative Tammy Duckworth, former Georgia Senator Max Cleland and former Commander of Fort Belvoir Gregory Gadson. Tracing the history of disabled veterans in America from the Revolutionary War to the current conflict in the Middle East, as narrated by leading scholars in the fields of disability studies, history and psychology, the film vividly illustrates the human cost of war and sacrifices of military service. It is brought to life through hundreds of carefully curated stills and footage from archives across the country. As advances in field medicine markedly reduce the number of deaths on the battlefield, more veterans are coming home with severe injuries.
