Where Soldiers Come From

JOY REVIEW

This is really a heartbreaking documentary because it’s kids who have no other option but to join the military and then get their lives ruined, essentially, if not ended. And it’s nothing that you haven’t seen before, it’s nothing you didn’t know before, but the kids are a bunch of 17 and 18 year olds from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, which is certainly one of the poorer areas of the United States, and they all join the National Guard for the money, and then are sent to Iraq. So it’s heartbreaking, as I said, there’s nothing new here. But it still will break your heart. Three stars.
