Debt of Honor

Mrs. Pope conceived and is the sole funder of “Debt of Honor,” a PBS documentary by award-winning filmmaker Ric Burns, that illuminates the history of disabled veterans from all American conflicts.  Told by scholars, veterans, advocates, health professionals, and, most importantly, disabled veterans themselves, the film is a compelling history lesson.  It is a poignant look at the challenges faced by those whose bodies and minds have been forever altered by war, and an urgent call to action to all Americans to express our gratitude to them and ensure that they are never marginalized or forgotten.  Which leads to Mrs. Pope’s new dream in life: to have this film be a standard part of every high school curriculum.
