Description:

America’s longest held prisoner of war returns to a country he no longer recognizes and a family who barely recognizes him.  Glory Denied speaks to the plight of so many of our veterans who nobly fight for their country but face huge challenges when it comes to re-assimilating into society—and their longed-for normal lives—after service.  This true story of Vietnam veteran Colonel Jim Thompson explores the unimaginable bravery asked of soldiers and even the nature of hope itself.
