For the last decade, thousands of men and women every year have left their homes to experience the horrors of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. When they come back, they often need help healing their wounds and rebuilding their spirits. Imagine if more small communities around the country took in our nation's wounded soldiers and treated them like the significant, strong people they felt like before they went into battle?

Montana-made documentary Not Yet Begun to Fight is a perfect example of how well this model can work. The documentary focuses on five warriors who join retired Marine Colonel Eric Hastings for a week of fly fishing in Montana through the Bozeman-based Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation (WQW). Filmmakers produced the film independently from the organization, looking to share stories of the warriors’ journeys once they returned home from war.
