Nicole Amelio-Casper & LTC Nate Brookshire Sharing Veterans’ Journey After Combat in the “Hidden Wounds Documentary”

Nicole began her work in broadcasting and film almost 20 years ago, volunteering with the local National Public Radio. She has a passion for it and received her Master’s Degree in Journalism and Public Relations in 2013. It was her experience as a military spouse that brought her the desire to highlight the struggles that the service members go through. Finishing up in 2018, she filmed, directed and produced the documentary, “The Journey Back to Normal – A Look at Complementary Therapies to Combat PTSD”. This was her second documentary but first sharing about the military experience.  She is continuing this journey as she is currently working on; “HiddenWounds: The Documentary”. 

Nate Brookshire is an active duty Provost Marshall with over 31 years of service in the Army . He has been a longtime advocate for facilitating long-term mental health care for veterans and their families and has been brought onboard to assist in the production of the documentary, “Hidden Wounds.”  In 2010, he co-authored the book, “Hidden Wounds: A Soldier’s Burden”. “Its fictional characters discuss the complex topics of suicide, survivor’s guilt, addiction and moral injury.” The book has been instrumental in sharing about the non-profit Hidden Wounds, whose soul mission is to help reduce barriers to accessing mental health care. 

Hidden Wounds: The Documentary is set to release early 2023. Its purpose is to highlight the “raw story of life after combat.” The trailer is available to preview, and has currently be nominated for; “Best Trailer at the Raleigh Film and Arts Festival” in October 2021.  Production is still in the fundraising stages and you can check out how to support it below.
