ANDERSON, Ind. -Â An Anderson family is featured in an upcoming documentary about the struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder.
Wes Carlile, 35, served in the U.S. Army and Air Force. He was diagnosed with PTSD after several tours overseas, including one in Iraq.
His wife wrote about the familyâ€™s difficult journey in a book, â€śThe War That Came Home.â€ť Her story caught the eye of an Emmy Award-winning director who featured the Carliles in the film, â€śWhen War Comes Home.â€ť
The documentary is an intimate look at PTSD in the military and the toll it takes on families.
â€śEvery time I would close my eyes, I would remember seeing a friend of mine bleed to death on the operating room floor,â€ť Wes said.
â€śIt doesnâ€™t always have to end bad and thereâ€™s no shame in asking for help,â€ť said his wife, Andrea. â€śIt takes more courage to admit that you need help than to just bury it and suck it up.â€ť
â€śWhen War Comes Homeâ€ť is set to be released in January.
