… The National Gulf War Resource Center asks that all Veterans and their families take the time to view scenes from Producer/Director Christopher Martini’s upcoming feature film, “Trooper”. This landmark film boldly addresses the human cost of war on our Veterans and their families through a compelling storyline that follows a soldier’s return from Iraq, only to discover that both he and his father, a Vietnam Veteran, face severe health problems resulting from their service in two very different wars. 

Most important – after viewing, we request that you take the time to “rate” the film trailer by clicking on one of the five red stars located at the bottom left of the video – hopefully the 5th star. Also submit comments and feedback where indicated. You’ll need to create a YouTube account in order to rate the film and post comments, but your efforts in this regard will help Mr. Martini secure funding necessary to complete and distribute the film. This film is dedicated to all Veterans and their families – let’s help finish it. A few keystrokes are all it takes for you to help.

  • During the Gulf War, veterans serving in Southwest Asia were exposed to harmful levels of oil well fire pollution, chemical warfare agents, pesticides, radioactive and toxic depleted uranium from spent ammunition, and ordered to receive experimental vaccines and other drugs.
